About Me

My name is Victoria and I love discovering new recipes. I also love sharing them, hence the idea behind this website. Cooking is fun and I especially love cooking for others and seeing their eyes light up as they enjoy my culinary creations. I’ve had a fair few disasters in the kitchen (haven’t we all!) but I try to learn from them instead of taking them to heart.

A lot of people don’t realize that it is possible to make the most amazing flavored dishes using basic ingredients and good, wholesome, fresh produce. You don’t need to combine 30 ingredients to make a tasty meal and, as long as you’re using good ingredients, you can make some stunning dishes with relative ease.

It All Started with Starters

This website is a collection of various other websites, because I had a number of them, and decided to put them all together, here, at VictoriaHaneveer.com but my first website was all about appetizers and starters, so those recipes hold a special place in my heart, because that is where it all began!

If you’re cooking a quick, easy dinner, you probably wouldn’t bother with an appetizer beforehand, but why not? While people are waiting for the main course, whether that might be your family, some friends or your partner, why not make some tasty tapas or canapes to snack on while the main meal cooks? Snacks like pate and toast, bacon-wrapped dates and sliced, smoked fish on crackers are easy to prepare and fun to serve, or you could make a hot or chilled soup.

If you are waiting for something to finish simmering, broiling or baking, make a couple of little snacks to serve in the meantime and your family will love you for it. Of course, if you are catering for a party or buffet it is vital to learn how to make these appetizers as well.

And the Rest

Besides the recipes you will find reviews and more, although there is more to come with regard to those, since there are way more recipes than anything else right now. That’s where it all began and that one of my main passions although you might want to bookmark this site because it is going to grow!

  • Easy Chicken Peach SaladEasy Chicken and Peach Salad
    This easy chicken and peach salad takes mere minutes to put together and it’s a great way to use up leftover cooked chicken. I’ve made it with chicken breast but you could use other cooked chicken pieces or some deli chicken slices. You could even use rotisserie chicken to make this (perhaps, still warm – yum!) This easy chicken and peach salad is made on a bed of iceberg lettuce, but of course you can switch the iceberg for any variety. Baby salad leaves would be good or chopped romaine. I like to add some lamb’s lettuce or a contrasting variety as well. Then you have the chicken on top, plus some peach for juicy .....

  • How to Cook a T Bone Steak in a PanHow to Cook a T Bone Steak in a Pan
    T bone steak is relatively lean and extremely tasty. Choose one with a nice red color and a bit of marbling and then you can pan fry it for amazing results. If you usually grill your steaks, consider pan-frying instead because you will still get a really good flavor, plus ‘grill marks’ if you are using a griddle pan (a ribbed pan) and if the weather isn’t quite warm enough to fire up the grill, you can still cook your T bone to perfection. Learn how to cook a T bone steak in a pan and you can prepare a side dish in the oven at the same time, and always know how to make juicy, tasty steak. Cooking the T bone steak in a pan .....
  • Delish Fish Crack SlawDelish Fish Crack Slaw
    I love trying new ways of making crackslaw, and fish makes a nice, light alternative to meat. Of course, it is carb-free just like meat is, and you can choose anything between sole for a light flavor or cod for a richer flavor. I really enjoyed this fish crack slaw and want to make it often. There are plenty of other types of fish you can use in fish crack slaw as well and examples that come to my mind include tilapia, snapper, halibut, monkfish, dogfish, basa fish, and haddock. As long as it’s skinless and boneless it will work. Don’t use imitation seafood in fish crack slaw though, like those imitation crab pieces or crab .....
  • 5 Great Websites about Space
    Like many people, I’m fascinated by space and sometimes I like to find new websites about space and wonder at it all. If you think about it, the Earth is just one tiny dot in the middle of a seemingly unlimited universe and, although we have some idea of what is out there, at least closest to us, there is so much we don’t know! I find the enormity of it all to be a thing of wonder, and now that technology is being developed at such a speedy rate, the space photos and new information available is incredible. When I see a headline in the newspaper about space or a link to look at photos, I often click through out of curiosity, but .....
