I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for this long. I was sure I would give it up or wouldn’t be able to stick to it. There have been moments along the way where I lost my blogging mojo, but there is always a meal that gives me motivation to get back into it. I did

So I’ve dug out some pictures from months ago as I’ve been absolutely swamped at work this week. I don’t think I’ve ever been so stressed out as I have been, but luckily the week is almost over (at about 2pm on Saturday I can enjoy a reduced weekend). But enough complaining and more food!

Another recipe from the latest BBC Australian Good Food magazine. I’ll admit, this is from the “helping kids to cook” section, but it looked and sounded so good I had to give it a go. I almost didn’t cook the banana as I was having a case of the can’t be fudged-s, and I thought

Welcome to 2011. Hope you all had a great time bringing in the new year. I spent the day with some of my friends at the beach, until the wind picked up and it turned into a sand storm. My small camera got infected with sand and is now decommissioned . I had a nice
