I’m trying to do as many recipes that I been gawking at for months, even years that involve the deliciousness of summer stone fruit. There are a few mango recipes that I’m afraid are going to have to wait until next season, as I’ve missed the boat. For now I’m concentrating on peaches, nectarines and

If you are on a strict diet, look away…. I was luckily enough to be one of the lucky tweeters when the call for people to sample the new desserts from my favourite place in town went out. Along with other passionate foodies, we indulged in the lastest creations from super couple Bernard and Yen

I’m nearly done sorting and recycling all my billions of cooking magazines I’ve been hoarding. Let me just say, it’s the best thing I’ve done for a while.

I should have dusted the cake with icing sugar to make it look less burnt. So you will have to deal with Instagram photos. Remember what

I must admit, I thought this book would just be like one of those other ones I’ve seen; country style cooking with waffly stories and recipes I’d never try. Hardie Grant the publishers offered to send me a copy, and boy was I glad they did. On closer inspection, Audrey Gordon is actually Heidi Arena,

We somehow got into the bad habit of not eating breakfast on the weekend and just having a fairly average lunch. I decided that enough of bad habits, it’s time we turned ourselves around. After eating such a good breakfast, I felt so good for the rest of the day. It was so filling and

Today the delightful Miss A and I went out to Silvan to pick some cherries and other berries. I had read about a cherry picking place in the latest Delicious magazine and thought it might be a fun thing to do whilst enjoying the sunshine. Then a friend on facebook posted some photos of Chappies

I survived the cookbook challenge. 52 weeks. 52 recipes. 52 different themes. I started off so well, but then it got to “insect” week. I had a few recipes flagged, it was going to be snail scrolls, but with the combination of moving out of home, and being terrible at catching up on missed challenges,
