quick leftovers empanadas

2019-05-26T03:33:23+00:00

What better way to jazz up left overs than to encase them in slightly crispy, slightly chewy, subtly sweet fluffy pillows. Empanadas are traditionally bread or pastry stuffed with meat/cheese/veges and either baked or deep-fried. These little guys are pan-fried like pancakes, [...]

‘spicy’ mince & sweet potato hash (cooked under the influence)

2019-05-19T04:57:09+00:00

This is a very special recipe as I'm dedicating it to my long-time gal friend, (and fellow food appreciator), Anna-Hay. Anna's about to embark on an adventure which I am, (as always) most respectful and (in the words of Hugh Grant [...]

seedy, nutty ‘no-knead’ bread

2019-05-19T04:57:09+00:00

The 'easy' food that I miss the most since dodging the gluten and grains is bread. I once heard someone say that there’s no food they can think of that isn't improved when served between 2 slices of bread; and I tend [...]

toasted coconut & kale with scrammy eggs

2019-05-16T10:31:21+00:00

To give credit where credit's due, this recipe was inspired by the boys from Bondi on an early episode of the 2013 My Kitchen Rules TV series, who have since climbed great heights in Australia's paleo world. They had planned to serve a [...]

honey & cinnamon hot cross buns with cranberries & dark chocolate

2019-05-19T04:57:10+00:00

In the past, for me, hot cross buns always fell into the same sad category as fruit cake, marmalade and the dreaded 'mince pies' - collectively rejected due to one little overpowering ingredient which, in my opinion, once removed, belongs nowhere but [...]

Tomorrow is Pancake Day, also known as 'Shrove Tuesday' or 'Fat Tuesday', which is a tradition dating back to the 12th Century which falls on the day before the Christian fasting period of 'Lent' begins. It first started as a [...]

mini smoked salmon, fetta & chive frittatas

2019-05-19T04:57:10+00:00

Recently I was asked for "something quick, easy and healthy I can make for brunch that doesn't involve sandwiches". I think this one's a winner as it's so simple and only has 5 ingredients (including pepper!). Every now and then [...]

my work brekki

2019-05-19T04:57:11+00:00

I'm not really someone who has many 'rituals'. I never get up or go to bed at the same time; I get to work and leave at a different time each day; and purposely avoid going out into the CBD [...]

bacon & egg brekki pies

2019-05-16T10:49:05+00:00

I still think bacon and eggs for brekki is a bit of a treat. And as nice as it is to just keep it simple in a '1 pan' fashion and whack it on some toast, when friends are over [...]
