My partner is currently addicted to the Starbucks Caramel Banana bread and we want to make our own.. but i no recipe for it nor could i find one on google.

  12. Hi Everyone =) Well after eatting one of my nice new chili's off my chili plant and having already realised they weren't the mild ones the label they had from the garden centre said, I mentioned this to my best friend Tug (who also posts here ) and she was like well what do they look like.. so i explained.. she showed me a picture and yep they looked like mine.. and well they were habaneros..yes the hottest chili's ever Now i was ready for a batch of mild chilis that if i couldnt use them all could share with my brother who is a chili freak, but well even he doesnt want that many. My question is.. anyone have any recipes for either preserving them till i can use them, recipes i can use them in that may dull the HEAT.. or just recipes of any kinda LMAO I have about 30 chilis sitting here to use, thats after giving some away.. and then there are about another 20 on the (2) plants i have waiting to rippen and well there are more flowers.. so some more will be arriving soon LMAO HELP!!! <-- thats just 5 of my chilis LMAO
  13. I guess it would depend on how you were planning to eat them. Myself im not much for hot prawns. I like my prawns as they are.. so i would either buy them already cooked with the shells still on or buy them and cook them with the shells on.. then peel, devein and eat =) and no i didnt eat like a kilo of prawns on my own the other day really *hides all evidence* And personally i find it easier to deshell and devein a prawn that is cooked than an uncooked... Kath
  14. It was 2 eggs, dash of milk, salt, pepper, chives from my little garden, grated cheese and chopped up mushroom. IT was all the mushrooms fault.. i made it the other day and it didnt look like cat barf.. its because i added the mushies. i swear
