Home-made skinless sausages are easy to make, you know what's in them, and they'll save you dollars. Simply combine the ingredients, roll the mince mixture into sausage shapes using your hands, then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. You don't have to stick to beef mince when making sausages. The tastiest bangers are often made from a combination of minces, such as veal and pork. You can also use chicken breast mince or lean lamb mince. Add a tasty twist to the traditional sausage by adding fresh herbs such as rosemary, sage or basil. When making fresh sausages, be aware they don't contain preserv- atives like the store-bought var- iety, so they should be cooked and eaten within two to three days of being made.

The food's as good as the view NAME: The Cove at Drummoyne WHERE: 1 Henley Marine Dr, Drummoyne. Phone 9719 3022 OPEN: Weekdays from 8am to 4.30pm, weekends from 7.30am to 4.30pm PROFILE: Victoria Ziarkowski The food, view and atmosphere are good at The Cove. Chef Anil Thappa with Ben Quinlan. WHETHER you're after a mid- morning coffee, an afternoon snack or a filling meal, The Cove at Drummoyne, is a beautiful place for it. Overlooking the Parramatta River, the views from the former caretaker's cottage veranda are stunning. The Cove owner Ben Quinlan said the restaurant was community-based and a favourite for locals. ''We're here for a lot of the bay walkers; there's the pool, the gym and the rowing club and we're here for those people,'' he said. The Cove aims to change its menu monthly. ''We want the menu to be as broad as possible,'' Mr Quinlan said. ''You can stop in for a light snack or bring someone in for a restaurant meal.'' The winter menu includes soups and hearty warm meals. My dining partner and I sampled some of The Cove's popular dishes. I had the ocean trout fillet with vegetable ragu and salsa verde ($19.50) and my friend enjoyed risotto with prawn, diced tomato, corn, white wine and parmesan ($19.50). Both were tantalising to the very last bite. We enjoyed the view, the warmth from the heaters and the relaxed cafe atmosphere as we sipped delicious coffee and enjoyed pistachio biscotti. Breakfasts include salmon benedict ($15.50) and freshly baked muffins ($4.80), and desserts include portuguese tart ($3) or blackberry cheesecake with creme anglaise ($7.50). The Cove is available for functions in the evenings. 3 DAYS ONLY Thu Jul 31st, Fri Aug 1st, Sat Aug 2nd - 9am-5pm CLUB FIVE DOCK 66 GREAT NORTH RD FIVE DOCK PH: 9529 4166 MOB: 0414 387 821 SALE SALE SALE DESIGNER LABEL CHILDRENS WEAR & EUROPEAN SHOES 50% - 90% OFF SUMMER & WINTER BOYS & GIRLS WEAR KENZO, ELLE, DKNY, IKKS, TIMBERLAND, MONA LISA, REPLAY, GUESS, DIESEL, ALPHABET, O'NEIL, MOSSIMO, PICCOLINA & MANY MORE...
