Pasta by The Australian Women’s Weekly

Making fresh pasta at home is a cooking project that invariably makes the list of 'Recipes I've always wanted to make'. It is simpler than many people think and the process can be really satisfying. Basic pasta dough can be used in its sheet form (lasagne, cannelloni), filled and folded (tortellini, ravioli) or cut into lengths (pappardelle, linguine). Not to mention the hundreds of different shapes also available, fresh and dried. And what's a silky smooth pasta without a perfectly-paired sauce- we have tomato-based favourites; creamy delights; rich and meaty; and those laden with vegetables or seafood.

The Test Kitchen Collection Baking by The Australian Women’s Weekly

Baking is close to our hearts at the Australian Women’s Weekly Test Kitchen. Over the decades we have created thousands of recipes for cakes, brownies, scones, slices plus all manner of doughs and pastries. Over time, many of these have been tweaked and adapted as trends and tastes evolve, resulting in more than one delectable version on file. For this book, we revisited Test Kitchen classics such as brownies and apple pie, to compare their multiple versions. After much tasting, and a staff vote, we developed a best-ever version based on our favourite characteristics in each one.

PRP Skin Treatments

Because it can help boost collagen, it can also be a treatment used for improving overall skin texture and tone. PRP can be particularly good for people who have acne scarring or hyper-pigmentation.
