turkey & cranberry meatloaf

2019-05-19T04:57:08+00:00

How do you measure your health? By how you look? By your weight? By how your clothes fit? By how often you get sick? Personally, I measure my health mostly by how healthy I feel and because I'm a bit of a sceptic and need to back important [...]

chicken liver paté

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

I don't drink beer, and I'm not really one for going up to the pub just for a drink. However, I have been known to go up at my local (The Local Taphouse) just to get their Chicken Liver Parfait [...]

choc-almond butter cups

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

Who doesn't love Reese's peanut butter cups?! These are healthier version and what I've been bringing along to festive celebrations this year. They're simple (only 5 ingredients), quick and forgiving with the quantities. The chocolate layer sets slightly harder than the nutty layer, [...]

rosemary, sesame & linseed crackers

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

There's no lengthy story behind this one. As my body is much happier if I limit grains, I often use almond meal or coconut flour in place of wheat flour. This recipe has been adapted from a version on Elana's [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

ANZAC ‘Remembrance’ cookies

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 [...]

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 [...]
