    The second time I use one of the recipes…was skeptical about all the tomato sauce, but man was I wrong! We loved it, absolutely brilliant, highly recommended!

      Hi there
      aromat is like a spice, the link will take you to a website that will explain to you what it is. Hope you will be able to find something similar to where you are.

      hI pRECIOUS!
      sorry for the late reply, we have been cooking and blogging up a storm. i have frozen homemade kebabs (beef and chicken) in marinade before and it worked wonderfully. you an freeze any meat for up to 6 months successfully at a constant temperature.

      hope it helps!!

      Hi Rashida
      Sorry for the delay in response, been real busy over the festive season. you can use normal ginger ale or ginger beer (the homemade kind) if you want, or you can use tomato juice, red wine, grape juice, anything that you might like the flavour of, experiment and let us know if you find something that works!!
