Father’s day pancakes

It's one of those things that you never appreciate until it happens. Until you become a parent. A mother. A father. Until there is something on this earth that steals your heart.

Three bean chilli nachos

This is a long time coming. A whole year has passed since I was here. So I'm unsure of which story to give a voice to first because there are simply so many, all in one way or another connected to food.

How to make Italian buttercream

A cheese and pineapple echidna, chocolate cornflake cakes, popcorn, fresh fruit skewers, homemade lemonade. And cake. What a kid's birthday party is all about.

No bake mint chocolate cheesecake

I think it's been about 10 months since I last visited here. Life with two small people is needless to say, very busy. Jam packed really. It makes for a full day. But I wouldn't have my life right now any other way.

Easy upsidedown pineapple cake

Now that during the day we are three, me, a very little and helpless human and an independent, talkative, whirlwind of a toddler, activities to do with the later, to make her feel included and secure.

Cafe de Paris butter recipe

This post is a long time coming. A long time. Pregnancy stopped me in my tracks in more ways than simply preventing me from posting here. My main focus was on growing a healthy baby.

Asparagus carbonara

So without further a do, I mean it has been eight weeks or something now, I have a new recipe, asparagus carbonara. A dinner born as a way to help make use of the gorgeous and abundant cherry.

Peach and burrata salad

I know. I know. I feel a bit sheepish coming back, but I really really would like to explain where I've been. And also make my comeback along with a killer summer peach and burrata salad.

Roast capsicum bruschetta with tomato and parsley

So now I've shared with you where we've been staying for the last three months, can you picture it? Can you hear the waves breaking from your pillow as you lie in bed reading a book.

Almond tart with strawberries

I can't really keep it a secret any longer. If you visit here often you're going to notice sooner or later anyway, so I'd better come clean. For the last three months I have been living in a house with views.

Beautiful Thai canapés

Let me begin by telling you about the thing that I've wanted to do for a very long time. Ocean swimming. Dropping into the sea and swimming in the cool mineral rich water.

A very easy garlic prawn entree

Prawns plus garlic. The perfect combination. Add some fresh bread and you have a very easy garlic prawn entrée. The best thing about this starter is that it's served 'en papillote' or in the bag.

Oven baked chicken wings

I made an awesome discovery last weekend. Blue cheese dipping sauce. It's delicious. Lick the bowl clean kind of delicious. So why have I never tried it before, especially since it's extremely quick.

Making homemade crinkle cut chips

I failed. I missed a week. My intention at the start of the year was to write one blog post a week. Which sounds easy right. But with a small person in your life and the responsibility of a job.

Penne pasta with brussels sprouts

My favourite source of fuel is still pasta though and this penne pasta with brussels sprouts will convert even the most staunch dislikers of these miniature cabbage like vegetables into new admirers.

Baked lime chicken burritos

Thursday dinners always seem to be Mexican in our house and this week it was something a little bit different from the normal tacos and quesadillas. I made baked lime chicken burritos.

Easy chicken vindaloo recipe

How do you celebrate father's day with your dad when you're in one country and he's in another. A 24 hour fight between you. Well, I'll tell you what I did. I cooked my dad his favourite meal.

Egg fried brown rice with chorizo

My freezer is full of chorizo. Of all shapes and sizes and with differing amounts of chilli. Why. Well, because it's such a great ingredient. Versatile. Flavoursome. Quick and easy to use.
