One of my favourite memories of work, was taking this tart in after we had a Mexican feast. This tart packs an alcoholic punch! Needless to say, we were pretty jolly for the rest of the day!!


I join a restaurant safari to see what you can expect at this year Taste of Melbourne.


A tasty combination of zingy flavours, and coupled with my awesome Mexican corn, this dish is bound to be a pleaser, even to the coriander haters!

I was a bad citizen of the world this year, and totally forgot when Cinco De Mayo was. Last year was the first year I found out about it, and demanded we celebrate with tacos; even if they were the very non-Mexican Old El Paso crunchy vareity. Had I have remembered, I would have made

At the last cooking the books feast, I suggested a Nigella Lawson book, after we decided we didn’t want to do Bourke Street Bakery. Agnes flicked through a few of Nigella’s books that were in Cherrie’s collection, and we decided on her latest book, Kitchen. ALTHOUGH…. as I began to do this post, I noticed

I jumped on the International Incident Party bandwagon again, started off by Jeroxie, Anh from A Food Lover’s Journey and Cherrie of Sweet Cherrie Pie. This month’s co-hosts were Trix, Natasha, honey and soy! I took the opportunity to try a recipe I’ve been waiting to try for a while now. I had grand plans

We just had these for dinner tonight. A relatively easy after work meal to whip up, and a damn tasty one at that. However it was one of those recipes that when I came to type up I realised I left some ingredients out. It didn’t matter cos they were so good anyways. I’ve popped

Week 24 Theme: Chocolate Cookbook Used: Faking It Author: Valli Little For chocolate week, I could have just done a chocolate cake, souffle, mousse… anything sweet really. But I decided I’d go for something different again and do a savory dish. Teaming chocolate with chicken is definitely something I would not have thought to do,

I’ve been craving Mexican food a lot lately. I’m not sure why, but it’s always such great comfort food. And since someone smashed into the side of my car just the other day, I was in need a good dose of comfort food. I found this recipe and it looked like a Mexican lasagne. It
