The other weekend, Mr M had convinced me to go on an overnight bush walk. However, inclement weather meant that our chosen spot was a little flooded and our walking plans were downgraded to a single day of hiking. I will admit this here I’m not a big hiker. I don’t really enjoy it, I […]

      I’ll keep this pretty simple. I love the Fox. The Fox is another of my local pubs and it is my favourite haunt for a Sunday afternoon drink. The Fox is pretty unparalleled when you are perched on the rooftop beer garden and the weather is lovely. Look at that view back […]

  In between all the wedding related festivities I’ve been attending lately there have been a fair few thirtieth birthdays My friend P recently had his thirtieth on a glorious summery day at a bowls club. I thought that some cupcakes would be a nice addition to the day, provided I could make them masculine […]

My colleague (and friend) C recently came into my office and handed me some rhubarb from her friend’s veggie patch. I’ve always loved rhubarb, but I wanted to make something different from the standard stewed rhubarb or rhubarb crumble. I thought a rhubarb muffin could be nice for a change, and whipped up a batch, using […]

La Belle Mitte is the brand new venture for a pair of self confessed Francophiles. The tiny store on Hardware Lane is a macaron-lovers dream, as it is wholly macaron focussed. Macarons are the only food they sell, and the other items on the limited menu are strictly French – tea from Mariage Frères and artisanal […]

Last year, Pierre Roelofs began dessert evenings at Cafe Rosamond in Collingwood. Every Thursday, hordes of excitable dessert fiends would jostle for a coveted spot inside the tiny Cafe Rosamond. The dessert evenings are held from 7pm – 11pm and you can choose from one, two or three courses of dessert ($20, $30 and $40 […]

While Mr M and I were in Hobart, we were very keen to visit Red Velvet Lounge (RVL) in Cygnet. Cygnet is a gorgeous little town situated about 50 minutes drive from Hobart – as a visitor it is just incredible that a place so serene and country-like can be less than an hour from […]
