This weekend Mr M and I wandered up to Mixed Business for breakfast. It’s been on my to-do list for a while, particularly after reading positive reviews from Eating Melbourne, Fitzroyalty and Breakfast Out. It’s also the name of a favourite song of mine from Beck (oh yeah!) We arrived to find it full and […]

As regular readers would well be aware, I have a huge sweet tooth and absolutely love baking. Family birthdays are an excellent excuse to spend some time in the kitchen making a sweet treat. On the weekend, it was my dad’s birthday and I offered to bake him a birthday cake of his choice. He […]

I caught up with friends for a late Saturday breakfast – so late it wasn’t actually morning anymore and so late that I needed a “pre-breakfast breakfast” to tide me over.

Mr M and I stopped by at local favourite the Old Raffles Place one night after work for a quick meal.
