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 ...

Southern fried chicken

It seems like no matter how many times I ask my kids what they feel like for dinner they always have the same answers: lasagne, Mexican, or pizza. So it was nice to get a different response when one came back with "buttermilk fried chicken". Off I went to Dr Google for some clue as ...

Celebrating food diversity.

As I begin typing this post I have next to me, ready to be savoured later this evening, some new cookbooks. All three focus on very different cuisines: Dalmatian, Thai, and Middle Eastern. Over on the stove top I have laksa bubbling away, while nearby sits a plate of crumbed chicken schnitzels and some napoletana ...

Stir fried beef and green bean curry

In the mood for something spicy and Thai flavoured and wanting to make use of the many tins of red curry paste I bought without being quite sure why, I decided to use the curry paste as the flavour base for a kick ass stir fry, minus coconut milk or cream to sooth the fire. ...

Slow cooked sticky ribs

Don't let the picture full of brown fool you, they might be hard to photograph in a pretty way but these ribs will be a hit. They came about because my three older kids all love going out to a popular restaurant that is known for their fall off the bone sticky ribs. Taking my ...

Chicken & sweetcorn soup

I know that Winter is almost over but in Sydney August can be the most brutal month, with biting winds and that last ditch cold that sees me in dire need of a warming bowl of something hearty and delicious. And what's better in the winter than a steaming bowl of soup? {Vegan wannabe Ana ...

Ajvar

Ajvar is, for lack of a simple description, a red pepper and eggplant based relish type of sauce slash condiment, which is very popular in the Balkan region of Europe. Think Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, think lots of meat sizzling on the BBQ. Of course like all good things ajvar is pretty versatile, and to be ...

Long macchiato: the quest begins.

What does a lifelong tea drinker do when she discovers, while on holidays on the opposite side of the world, that the most perfect coffee she's ever had is a long macchiato, the one and only coffee that she, a former cafe owner and not-half-bad barista, never even knew existed? We're about to find out. ...
