Donna Hay’s banana & choc chip muffins

Faced with overripe bananas and not wanting to make banana bread yet again, I was happy to discover this recipe from one of my favourite Australian foodies, Donna Hay. All pantry staples, super quick and easy, and perfect for an after school treat. I've left the weights as per the original recipe despite my assumption ...

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

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...
