Mushroom & ginger san choy bau

Even though I can no longer label myself as vegan I do still try to make vegan choices as often as possible and in fact I eat no red meat and very little chicken. {Dairy is the mistress I can't seem to break up with but that's a whole other post.} What makes me happiest ...


Gregada: a strange word that took me forever to remember, this is a dish I never knew existed until recently. It's a very traditional Dalmatian recipe {the region not the dog 😉 } that we discovered only last year while in Zadar. My husband was contemplating what to order at one of our favourite restaurants, ...


This is the perfect salad: substantial, fresh, crunchy, zingy, and filling enough to be a meal on it's own. I usually serve it as part of a Lebanese spread but it's also great with a BBQ, or even with seafood. It's a great all rounder which always disappears fast. It's good for you too. I'm ...

Vegan pasta salad with caramelised balsamic

This recipe will actually take me longer to type up than it did to cook. It's perfect Summer eating, easily stretches to feed a crowd, and is full of vegetables too. You could definitely add some kind of crumbled cheese as well as olives and give it a Greek vibe, and some lentils or black ...

Crunchy chicken & almond salad

This salad is what you get when your older kids decide that five in the afternoon is a good time to tell you that they'll be home for dinner after all. So those few chicken schnitzels that were going to feed three now need to stretch to feeding a few more. There's always the pizza ...

Pantry essentials :: Ras el Hanout

Trust me when I say that this Middle Eastern spice mix is going to change your meals. I picked up a small tub earlier this year and liberally seasoned a free range chicken before cooking it on the BBQ {see recipe here} and the results were nothing short of spectacular. Since then I've used it ...

Mediterranean veggie & haloumi skewers

Still trying to be as vegetarian as I can, family BBQ's would initially seem the most challenging, what with the assumption that a BBQ means red meat. Instead BBQ's are a great way to get some delicious grilled veggies as well as salads and sides that are vegetarian and often vegan too. These skewers were ...

Black rice & quinoa salad with lentils and heirloom tomatoes

A salad that can either be enough of a meal on it's own or do duty as a side, is filled with stacks of nutritious goodness, is easy to prepare AND tastes delicious: this is one of those salads. Label it as a superfood if you must, but the truth is that it really is ...

Taco Tuesday

It's no secret that our family loves Mexican food. What began with a few packets of Old El Paso taco shells and nacho kits many many years ago has grown into a love affair with the more authentic kind of Mexican food, think hours of long slow cooking for pulled pork and adobo sauces that ...

Super indulgent French toast

I cooked a heck of a lot of French toast when I had my cafe, but it wasn't until I made this version that I understood why it's such a popular dish. At the cafe I used a brioche loaf but since such things aren't that readily available I tend to make French toast at ...
