Apricot Coconut Bliss Balls

Well, here we are, the start of the new school year. I have mixed emotions about this, yet again. Although it is just a day, and my son is only one measly day older than yesterday, the start of a new grade signifies that my little baby is much further away from being a baby. […]

Tomato, Roast Capsicum + Quinoa Soup

Why did I decide to start a blog? Perhaps it is time to elaborate a little.. I used to co-own a little coffee shop with a talented (and highly motivated!) lady, my best friend, Kate Berry. It is a time in my life that I will forever look back on with pride and delight. It was an […]

Corn, Spring Onion + Ricotta Quiche

  Us mothers at Clancy’s school organised a get-together, to celebrate our children surviving the first month of prep and our own new found friendships. Basically an excuse to have a glass of wine, eat cheese and socialise (like we needed one). Being the obsessive food lover that I am, I always see situations like […]
