‘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 [...]

caramelised onion, fetta & ćevapčići tart

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

I eat a lot of onion. I add brown onion to most savoury cooked dishes and I grow (an abundance of) green onions in my vege patch which are a great, subtle raw addition to all my salads. In addition to the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
