Eating Out: Tandoori Den

It was the evening of Earth Hour and we have sort of made it a habit to go out for dinner with friends. We decided on somewhere fairly close to home, at a place Iron Chef Alana highly recommended. I called during the week to make a booking with no problems. I then called up […]

Souvlaki Wraps with Beetroot Tzatziki

Mid-week cooking took a Greek influence this week. It was my first attempt at Greek food, and I know how much my boy loves a souvlaki, so I thought I’d give this recipe a go. I had a few issues with the meat not staying on the stick when I was cooking it, so I […]

Coconut Bread

Since I hadn’t baked for about a week I was starting to feel the need to get into the kitchen and make something tasty. I found this recipe in my “to try” folder. I had all the ingredients in the cupboard so I didn’t need to venture down to the shops… which was great cos […]

Eating Out: Monk & Me

A while ago I tried a place in Camberwell that I had walked past quite a few times and always wanted to go in. Being half Malaysian, I’m usually craving some kind of Malaysian cuisine, usually curry laksa! So Nerdy Rob and I headed down to give this place a go. We wondered in for […]

Eating Out: Shakahari

I’m going to apologise now, as this is going to be a bit of a vague review because I can’t find the menu online to give you the proper names for each dish! So hopefully the pictures will speak for themselves. My dear friend Iron Chef David had his birthday at an Indian vegetarian restaurant […]

Pistachio & Lemon Bites

I made these for a random casual dinner party last night. A lovely bunch of people gathered at Iron Chef Jason’s house for a lovely dinner of pasta and Bondi Vet. Whilst I’m sorry that the gluten free and vegan guests couldn’t try these, they were a bit hit with everyone else. It was a […]

Lamington Top Cupcakes

Probably one of the worst cookbooks you can buy a person is one that has yummy looking cupcakes in it, but also tells you how many calories, and how much fat and carbohydrates are in the recipes. Never mind. I can block that out I guess! I had my cousins over on the weekend and […]

Fig & Oat Biscuits

We had a few too many figs lying around the house this weekend and mum said if I wanted to use them I had better do it quick or they wouldn’t be good anymore. Talk about baking under pressure! They are as delicious as they look! I would say it’s the little bit of cinnamon […]

Eating Out: Brunetti Carlton (part 3)

More Brunetti adventures happened on the weekend as part of my dear friend, David’s birthday celebrations. We headed to Brunetti which was across the road from an Indian vegetarian restaurant we dined at earlier which I will review later on for you all. Being a large group we had to skulk around for a place […]

Chocolate Madeleines

I thought I’d bake a little thank you gift for my panel beater to thank him for all the help he has provided with my car lately. I did have a pistachio and lemon biscuit in mind but when I went to the cupboard I found that my bag of pistachios had been eaten. So […]
