apple sandwiches with almond butter

Apple Slices with Cinnamon Almond Butter

As I have continually expressed, I have a long history of weird food behaviour and food obsessions. Yet there has never been an obsession greater than my affinity with peanut butter. There have  many occasions where I have eaten half a jar, in some crazed frenzy, and thought well, that’s dinner taken care of. This behaviour is […]

Raw Salted Caramel Fudge

Sometimes I feel I am a walking contradiction. A cacophony of opposing traits. A tiny ball of chaos that is obsessed with systems and order. Overflowing with love. Cries way too much. A pillar of strength, with the potential to crumble any second. Overly proud. Overly vulnerable. Filled with terror, yet as brave as can be. It’s very confusing.Tomorrow […]

Cashew Maple Muesli Bars

Do you have certain songs that transport you to a particular time in your life? I do. I can listen to a song and instantly be hauled back to the past. But not just by way of memories, it’s much deeper than that. It’s as if the song pokes me hard in the heart with its index finger. And suddenly […]

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. […]

Spiced Vegetables and Buckwheat

I only recently got my driver’s licence. Just three months ago. For the last 34 years I had walked everywhere. Most people thought it was absolutely absurd, to be my age and not know how to drive. You see my mother doesn’t know how to drive so I was not raised with a car. We […]

stuffed mushrooms

Stuffed Mushrooms with Ricotta + Chilli

I am the only one in the house who likes mushrooms. Today I found myself home alone for dinner, and decided to take advantage of the opportunity. I made myself something I don’t get to eat very often. I grabbed a pile of large field mushrooms from the grocer, a tiny bird’s eye chill, and a wedge of […]

peanut butter choc shake

Choc – Peanut Butter Shake

I’ve never been mad about smoothies and protein shakes. There are many smoothie/shake/juice lovers out there, having one for breakfast every morning. I am not one of those – because it is a beverage. It’s definitely a psychological thing for me. I need eat food, to chew, in order for me to feel satisfied. You place all […]

tomato quinoa soup

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 […]

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. […]
