Valentine’s Day… a load of rubbish if you ask me! I spent the evening with my man and some of my closest friends at a free Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performance at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. We had an excellent time, hogged a bit too much of the grass, and ate way too much. We

*sigh* my pictures never look as good as Donna Hay’s! But I think my food tastes just as good! Had my aunty come over for dinner tonight and mum suggested I cook dinner. I thought it was a good opportunity since I missed mid-week cooking as I went to the Chris Brown and Rihanna concert!

It’s mid-week cooking time again folks! This week I was tossing up between meatballs and cannelloni. It was a tough decision, but this recipe sold me. Who would have thought to put salami in meatballs? It’s genius! I altered the recipe a bit and added double the quantity of tomatoes as I love lots of

Saturday night I had 2 new Iron Chef friends enter the kitchen. As they are vegetarian I had to consult the vegetarian section of library! I tried to find something fairly easy for us to do and then pop in the over so we could prepare dessert as it cooked. I did want to try

Mid-week cooking is back! Although it nearly wasn’t as I was quite tired from running the household with my parents away for 4 weeks. The lucky ones are holidaying in Europe whilst I look after the house and not try to burn it down! Last time they left me the freezer blew up and I

Mid week cooking was a success this week! I even decided to attempt a dessert as well from the latest Delicious magazine that arrived in my letterbox this week. Huge hit at the dinner table. The recipe says to used 2 cans of Sirena tuna in oil, so I used one of the plain variety
