Mustard-Maple Baked Beans, with Goats Cheese

  After a 2 week hiatus I am back. Apologies to those of you who were eagerly awaiting a new recipe in your inbox – I found I was placing unnecessary pressure on myself to get a blog post done. I decided to just let it go. Mind you, it was a difficult decision for […]

Simple Turkish Eggs

As you may already know, I tend to get a little obsessive over things. I have even had a period of egg obsession (as explained in this post) and now I am in the midst of another. Much to my dismay, kitchen time has be very limited of late – I seem to be eating […]

Somehow I Became Obsessed With Food

  Food is an enormous part of my identity. In fact, if a friend was attempting to describe me to another, I am fairly certain it would be something along the lines of this: short girl, talks a lot, obsessed with food. Yep, that’s me. Surprisingly it has not always been this way. I mean, I have […]

Rice Paper Rolls, Two Ways

  I’ll be honest, Rice Paper Rolls are not usually part of my repertoire. I mean I love them, but I generally just buy them rather than make them at home (which, is pretty peculiar behaviour for me actually!). Unfortunately I am super fussy and cannot bring myself to even try the ones from the local suburban ‘Sushi’ shop. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Beet Hummus AND Carrot + Cannellini Bean Paste

I have a deep love for bread. Not just any old loaf, it needs to be good. A big chunk of my diet consists of sandwiches and toast. Perhaps a bit more than I’d like to admit. I have always been a lover of bread, however working in an artisan bakery has taken my bread […]
