  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 […]

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 […]

   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 […]

As we come to the end of the season for tomatoes in Australia, I thought that this recipe from Ottolenghi’s Plenty would be a lovely way to show them off.

The other weekend Mr M suggested that we go on a picnic. I was thrilled at the idea – a picnic is really just eating and lounging, two of my favourite things! But I was less enthused when I realised we didn’t particularly have any picnic-friendly food on hand. So I did a ‘surprise chef’. I […]

Regular readers will know that both Saskia and I are on a mission to try to find ways of making do and using the food we have rather than throwing things out (check out Saskia’s crumble and her banana cake and my carrot cake). In this vein I was at work one day pondering the random collection […]

Last Tuesday, my little family had Emily and her husband (my brother) and my other brother over for dinner. My dad decided to make a meaty cannelloni, which sadly excluded me from the mains. All was not lost, however. I decided to make some braised vegetables to stick inside the tubes for myself. I’ve made […]

I was perusing the lovely ‘Where’s the Beef?’ on the weekend and came across these vegan sausage rolls. When I was a young lady, sausage rolls were one of my favourite foods, but I haven’t had one for a long time. I thought that I’d give Cindy’s recipe a shot. I followed her recipe exactly, […]
