This week we're celebrating Australia! Four of our Australian authors (Rita Galieh, Jo-Anne Berthelsen, Narelle Atkins, and Rita Galieh) have shared these delicious sounding (and, in some cases, looking!) recipes with us: Eggplant Bruschetta, Cranberry Salad, Aussie Beef Rissoles, Kibbeh, Gluten-Free Christmas Cake, Frangipani Pie, Grapes & Yoghurt, and Chocolate Crispy Puffed Rice Treats.
Yum! It was hard to pick just one recipe to feature on the page today, but this recipe won out because: a) I had no idea what it was and b) the contributor provided a beautiful photo!
