  Hello! A little break over the Christmas and new year period turned into a much longer blog hiatus than expected. But I am back! And I have a lot of great stuff to share. This salad is a favourite that I have been meaning to blog for a really long time. Like some of my other […]

This year my Christmas baking hasn’t been quite what it usually is. Unfortunately I’m yet to experience the pre-Christmas wind down. But I did find the time to make these little babies. I wanted to make something else with my festive spice mix that would be an all around crowd pleaser. A vanilla cupcake with […]

           I cannot believe that December is upon us! It’s unbelievable that the year is drawing to a close and we are hurtling rapidly towards Christmas and some much needed holidays. In realising that the festive season is moving to full swing, I also realised that I needed to get my festive baking on (you […]

We all need a little more beans sometimes. These little superfoods have basically everything going for them. Most beans are full of all the good stuff, such as protein, iron, fibre and complex carbs. They’re also cheap and – when cooked with love – downright delicious. All in all, they make me happy. I’ve been […]

A few months ago, I found myself in Unawatuna on the teardrop-shaped island of Sri Lanka. Unawatuna is a beachside town that ticks all the boxes: sun, sand, surf, cheesy bars, and – of course – tasty food. One day, some like minded food-loving friends and I decided to forgoe the beach and learn some of the […]

Last year Saskia blogged about her failed attempts at her grandmother’s Anzac biscuits. Said failure was largely due to the imprecise nature of the recipe and some missteps with the ingredients (I maintain that Saskia forgot the flour in the first batch). On Twitter Kate from Eating Melbourne gave an Anzac recipe from taste her […]

   A while ago, Saskia posted a recipe for gobi dhal from a favourite family cookbook, Indian Cooking by Khalid Aziz (circa 1983). As Saskia mentioned, the book isn’t fancy but it certainly contains some fantastic recipes. This vegetable curry is based on a recipe from the same book, though I tend to take a very loose […]
