I was going to post this on the healthy recipe section but this is more appropriate. I'm loving wholemeal rice cakes (the thin one's) with grated zucchini and cottage cheese with pepper. Yum yum.

Kate i just buy the tin foil baking dishes,spray the pan and pop it in, just make sure to rest any red meat for 10-15 min after you take it out to seal in the juices,covered with tin foil.. I dont get to creative with rosemary or garlic ,but once you get the hang of it you can individualise it to how you like it. The roast chicken that are already marinated are yummo too.i dont have to much success with pork and the crackle,but now adays the crackle is a no no for me anyhow :D :D . can you tell I'm hungry :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ya know, I actually tried pork crackle for the first time last weekend. I was curious, because I've never had it before (Jewish family, we don't have roast pork too much!)

It's really gross! I don't see the attraction at all.. :shock: I was somewhat disappointed, because my friends were all so into it... but I guess it's a good thing I don't like it!! 8)

thanks for the tips deb :) i got the hang of the roast vegies. i pre cook them in the microwave first and spray them with cooking spray to give them a glossy crunchy texture :)

Kate, I have never ruined a roast since I started using oven bags. It keeps all the juices in - but I freeze the juices and save them for next time as I usually can't wait for the fat to settle. 30 minutes per 500g and use an oven bag is all you need to remember.
