#Salads


A highlight of Good Food Month was the Mediterranean brunch that featured celebrity chefs; Yotam Ottolenghi, Karen Martini and Shane Delia. Hosted at Aerial in Docklands, it was a feast fit for a king.


Years ago, you couldn’t pay me enough to eat chickpeas. I still feel this way about kidney beans but I’m currently smitten with chickpeas <3 If you are after a really easy dinner with tasty results to make your mouth sing; try this recipe.


This simple recipe packs a flavoursome punch. Great for Summer with an ice cold beer out on the warm deck… if you have one! If not, don’t worry, it’s still a great dish!


With Summer on its way, hotter days; nobody want’s to spend anytime near the stove. This chicken salad will soon be in your rotation come Summer no doubt. If you feel super lazy, just make it with a BBQ chicken you pick up on the way home.

Summer requires easy dishes that don’t require much time in the heat of the kitchen. This tasty salad is one that I should make more often!


This recipe uses kin-waaaaaaaah darhling!

There was an article recently that mentioned, 2013 is International Year of Quinoa. So why not get cooking wiht it today!


I found the couscous lurking the back of my pantry and instantly felt like creating something with it. I had seen this recipe in yet another Donna Hay book, it looked so pretty, but the flavours weren’t something I’d normally cook up. With Hamsley being from the country, he wasn’t exposed to loads of different

I was a bit reluctant to cook this as Hamsley had protested on numerous occasions he doesn’t like poached chicken. He didn’t seem thrilled to find me poaching chicken on the stove, but I stuck with it as the picture in the magazine looked so good. By the end of eating two serves, he exclaimed

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang. Saturdays are usually spent catching up on things you didn’t have time to do during the week, shopping, and running around. But come Sunday, I generally like to enjoy a sleep in, then sloth around for the rest of the day, when I can, or get creative in the

I had been to Chilipadi a few times many years ago. I think the last time we went as a group we weren’t that impressed and we never ended up going again. It was a shame because the atmosphere was great. But as that was many years ago, way before I had a food blog,

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 feel like I’ve been starting a lot of blog posts with “I was one of the lucky bloggers chosen to..” and this is no exception. I was lucky enough to score an invite to the Bulla Cream Masterclass with Bulla Cream ambassador and celebrity chef, George Calombaris. Last year, Bulla ran a competition that

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang. This post will be short and sweet; just like making my favourite beef salad. Despite my love of blogging, it’s been a long day, and well I want to do other stuff too, like save the world in Little Big Planet, bake, or even watch grass grow. This applies

It started with a tweet. It started with a tweet of mine: “good news – I didn’t buy a cookbook today. bad news – 1 bought 3 instead. is there a cookbooks anonymous I can join?” (Don’t worry Mum, they were all well below retail price, and my savings are going well!) The good thing

Week 23 Theme: Leaf Cookbook Used: Marie Claire Fresh + Fast Author: Michele Cranston Thank Hamsley again this week for this recipe. He must have still been motivated from red week, he was looking through cookbooks for a leaf recipe. We originally were going to do caesar salad, but found this recipe in a book

Week 3 Theme: Hor d’oeuvres Cookbook Used: Instant Entertaining Author: Donna Hay   Ah… hor d’oeuvres week. The week I was least excited about, and fretting over what I could do. I looked at my bookshelf wondering which book had the magic answer, then I remembered about Donna Hay’s, Instant Entertaining. After a flick through,
