Millet Stuffed Peppers

  Ironically, ancient grains are relatively new to us modern folk. But there is no need to let your unfamiliarity keep you from trying them. In fact, once you realise just how simple they are to prepare they may very well become weeknight favourites in your kitchen too. Quinoa. Farro. Teff. Spelt. Kamut. Amaranth. Millet. […]

Summertime Lentil Salad

  There was a time in my life when I hated lentils. I blame it on those large green ones, you know, the ones that are super mealy and a bit dry. Mum used to cook these for dinner. Stupid mushy dry lentils. This could also be the reason why many of you aren’t too […]

Frozen Choc Banana Pops

  Whether you want to drop a few extra kilos or just want to make healthier choices, organisation is fundamental to your success. I constantly fall into the trap of letting myself get too hungry, and reaching for the the first thing in sight – the quickest way to satisfy those hunger pangs. It is almost […]

Chia Seed Muesli Bars

  My boy started school today. It’s hard to believe my little baby has grown up so much, in what seems like the blink of an eye. I remember when he was born, my own mum and my mother in law both told me to cherish every minute, as it is over before you know […]

Watermelon + Feta Salad

  You  really couldn’t get a more summery dish, even if you tried. We just survived one of the most intense heatwave on record in Victoria – this is exactly the kind of refreshing lunch that helps you get through. Some people screw their nose up at the thought of watermelon featured in a savoury […]

Almond + Goji Berry Granola

  Granola is not as big here as it is in The States. When I travelled (which seems like a lifetime ago now), I was surprised to see that granola was a staple for most of the cafes – especially in New York. Here in Australia, muesli is far more common fare, both in the […]

Choc-Tahini Spread

  Those of you who know me well, already know I am big on ‘homemade’. Rather than buying products from the store, I prefer to recreate my own versions at home. I am fairly certain this has been instilled in me from my childhood. Growing up with a single mum, funds were very limited. We didn’t […]

Raw CHERRY RIPE Cheesecake

I was hoping not to post another dessert recipe this week. I still have that post Christmas remorse from eating a record amount of chocolate. I was planning on making some fresh homemade pasta, with all the spare yolks I have in the fridge, but as I type it is one of those awful 40degree […]

Chocolate Macadamia + Coconut Tart

Tis the season for having guests. Or better still, being a guest. Both situations generally require some kind of edible token of friendship. If you find yourself in charge of sweets – look no further. Here we have the perfect dessert, whether you are a coeliac, a vegan, following a paleo diet, or just need […]

Gingerbread Trees + Stars

December is a pretty crazy month for us, as I am sure it is for most people. The lead up to Christmas full of parties, gatherings and gift giving. Every year (mostly) I make a batch of edible gifts to give to friends, extended family members, work mates and the like. One year I made […]
