polenta sriracha

Polenta Chips + Sriracha Mayo

It is the weirdest thing, going from out of control insane-in-the-membrane busy, to one day just completing all your projects at once. I have had so much going on over the last few years that I suppose I just got used to the mayhem. And perhaps it went it bit beyond just getting used to […]

potato and olive salad

Baby Potatoes with Beans and Olives

Well, I’m happy to say, I’m happy. Truly happy. This happiness can’t be pinned on a single event, or more importantly, on another person. It’s more an amalgamation of lots of little things. The things that, when you add them together, make up my life. And I guess in a way the expression is true – the whole […]

christmas dessert table

Raspberry + Almond Meringue Roulade

Christmas in my family was always a bit of a non-event. They were never the type to make a big deal of it. No Christmas tree to decorate, or twinkling of pretty Christmas lights in the lounge room. No carols either. There wasn’t the anticipation of a midnight visit from Santa and his reindeers, thus there […]

raw vegan key lime pies

Raw Vegan Key Lime Pies

I am terrified of saying goodbye. Goodbye to people, to objects, to situations. And for some reason it makes no difference to me whether I am saying goodbye to something good or something bad. It is the ‘letting go’ that is the problem. It was my birthday over the weekend. And as usual, I got weird […]

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 […]

shakshuka with feta

Basic Shakshuka with Feta

I have to admit, I am a bit of a hoarder. My mother drummed the ‘appreciate everything’ message quite firmly into my brain, which is completely fine. But this, paired with my overly sentimental nature, means that I don’t really throw anything away. Because I might need it one day. Or, because such and such gave it […]

flourless orange juice cake

Flourless Orange Juice Cake

This cake was the result of an experiment. I needed to make a flourless orange cake for my little sister’s birthday, but  I had absolutely no time for the usual pre-boil the oranges method. So I was forced to get a bit creative. I found the whole thing quite fascinating, really. The fact that I am now, […]

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 […]

Red lentil tarka dhal

Red Lentil Dhal

I live by the sea, and the cold wind blows strong. In summer it is a real asset. It smells of salt and coconut. There are children with spades digging channels and teenagers jumping off the pier. And we all spend hours in the crashing waves. For me however, its true beauty is revealed when […]
