garlic chilli sardines with pinenuts, capers & cranberries

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

Sardines are a controversial food divider. Generally people either really love them, or really don't. I'm not 100% sure but I suspect there might be some correlation to those who have fed a cat before, and those who perhaps have [...]

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 [...]

Just as you might use left-over rice, this is a tasty, quick and healthy way to use up left-over quinoa. Absolutely no need to be precise with these ingredients / quantities - like fried rice you can throw in anything [...]

spicy zesty kale chips

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

As an easily distracted person, I usually have many 'in-progress' things on the go which take ages to get finished because other things keep catching my attention. A few weeks ago I moved from Sydney to Melbourne, and I now [...]

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

When I was a little girl and up until late in high school, each ANZAC Day the family would all get up early and Mum would pin a piece of fresh rosemary to our collars - for remembrance*. We'd all [...]

slow oven-roasted cherry tomatoes

2019-05-16T10:30:02+00:00

When it comes to food, I'm pretty easily impressed. I'm especially fascinated by how flavours can evolve dramatically over time with only a little effort. A perfect example is what happens when you leave tomatoes, garlic and a little olive [...]

salsa verde (green sauce)

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

Flavour-wise, salsa verde is like pesto on steroids. A classic, rustic, Italian sauce usually served cold, I find it's usually pretty interchangeable with pesto, and often a preferable 'lighter' alternative as it's free from parmesan. Like pesto, it keeps well in a [...]

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 [...]
