This is a Mexican dish--huevos rancheros. I've never heard it called Pizza Scrambed Eggs before.

Anonymous - I made this recipe up from my head, I didn't use any recipe; so I had no idea there was a similar recipe out there! I looked up huevos rancheros and found that while the recipes might be similar in some instances, lots of them are also very different (there are a lot of non-Mexican versions, it seems). Most of them have chilis, some of them have refried beans and avocado or guacamole. Originally the basic huevos rancheros dish consisted of fried eggs served on fried corn tortillas with a tomato-chili sauce (no cheese) - very different from my Pizza Scrambled Eggs. :)

Chocolate Fudge Brownies

*These are very rich and delicious brownies; they don't need frosting because of their richness!  When I made these, they were so popular that one of Dan's work colleagues paid me to make them for him!*
150g (5.3oz) butter, chopped
300g (10.6oz) dark eating chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
3 eggs, beaten lightly
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup dark choc bits/choc chips
1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 185ºC (365ºF).  Line a rectangular pan 19cm x 29cm (7"x11") with baking paper.

Melt butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan; stir over low heat, without boiling, until mixture is smooth.  Cool until just warm.
Stir in sugar, egg and essence, then sifted flour, choc bits and sour cream.  Spread mixture into prepared pan.

Bake in moderate oven about 40 minutes.  Cover pan with foil; bake another 20 minutes.  Stand brownie in pan until it reaches room temperature.

Peanut Butter Crinkles

*This is a melt-in-the-mouth shortbread textured biscuit (cookie), it is delicious!*

125g (4oz) butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon bi-carbonate soda (baking soda)
pinch salt

Preheat oven to 190ºC (375ºF).  Cream butter, vanilla, lemon rind, sugars and peanut butter.  With a wooden spoon work in sifted flour, soda and salt, making a stiff dough.  Roll heaped teaspoonfuls into small balls with floured hands and place on greased oen trays.  Press biscuits down lightly with a fork, first crosswise and then lengthwise, for a crinkled effect.  Bake in oven 15 minutes.  Cool biscuits on oven trays.

Roast Pumpkin & Capsicum Pasta Salad with Bacon

*This is a recipe I made up to take with me to a family dinner.  It was a big hit!  It is very creamy - if you like your salads to have more of a tangy flavour, I would suggest using a tangy mayonnaise instead of the one in the recipe, and I would also suggest reducing the sour cream (making up the difference with mayonnaise) or adding more vinegar.  This recipe is very versatile and can be easily changed in multiple ways to suit your tastes*

350g (12oz) uncooked pasta (I chose small shells, but you could use any kind you prefer)
1 large capsicum (bell pepper), cut in strips
600g (21oz) diced butternut pumpkin (you could try another pumpkin if you don't have butternut, but I can't guarantee it will taste as nice!)
olive oil
250g (9oz) diced bacon
1 large brown onion, chopped finely

Dressing:
2/3 cup creamy whole egg mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 200ºC (390ºF).  Grease a baking tray.
