    Spiced millet and chickpea burgers with preserved lemon yoghurt

    Millet, while relatively new to me, has been around 10,000 years, and is a wonderful addition to a vegetarians kitchen.The texture of hulled millet, which is what I've used in these burgers is somewhat like a large couscous, is gluten free, rich in b vitamins, folic acid, calcium, iron, potassiu[...]

    Friday Finds & Weekly Eats

    It's Friday, and I'm wishing I was heading back to Paradise Bay for the weekend. It really was paradise. The food was amazing, and it was totally secluded and so relaxing. I only wish I got to spend more than 24 hours there. Where do you wish you were headed this weekend? Finds and favourite[...]

    Tequila Mojito Cocktail

    At the first sip of a mojito I am instantly transported back to Fiji and memories of my husband and I sitting by the pool sipping this refreshing cocktail. The combination of rum, mint, lime and sugar is an addictive one, and, when I first fell in love with mojitos, one I thought couldn't be top[...]

    Friday Finds & weekly eats

    I took this photograph, on an impromptu after dinner walk near my parents house, located in the pretty hamlet of Low Head in Northern Tasmania, when my husband and I last visited Tasmania, my childhood home, in 2010. I honestly can't believe it was so long ago. I love the sun, saying it's final [...]

    Edamame salad with lychee, coriander, mint & rice noodles and a chilli lime dressing

    As much as I love cooking, some nights the thought of cooking dinner is more than I can bear. It's not the act of actually cooking I have a problem with, but some nights it simply boils down to deciding what we're going to actually have for dinner. I've given up asking my husband what he wants f[...]

    Slow roasted tomatoes with avocado & feta

    Breakfasts for most people, myself included, are often repetitions of the same old thing. For me that's a cup of tea and toast. For others it might be breakfast cereal, and for some, my husband included, it might be no breakfast at all. It's funny to think that most of us would turn up our no[...]

    Mini Doughnut Cupcakes recipe

    This morning Troy reminded me I needed to cook something for him to take to work tomorrow for morning tea. Normally I jump at the opportunity to bake anything, but with my parents visiting, who also happen to have caught a nasty flu following their month long cruise to celebrate their retirement[...]

    Mushroom Quinoa Burgers with Roasted Garlic & Thyme Mayonnaise

    6 years ago, when Troy and I started dating we had a conversation about food and he brought up his hatred of mushrooms. Yes, he actually used the word hate. I was worried then because, as a long time lover of mushrooms, who ate them practically every day, I wasn't sure how things would work o[...]

    Sunshine Carrot Dip

    We have my parents coming to stay with us in a couple of weeks, so I'm busy road testing recipes trying to work out what I'm going to feed them while they're here. My Dad is a perennial snacker as he's always on the go. Either going out for long walks, which he does twice a day, as well as his [...]

    Rhubarb and Orange Blossom Cake

    Let's start by saying if you plan on making this cake the day before and photographing it on the following day don't. The juicy rhubarb topping combined with the humidity here in Brisbane lead to an unattractive sag in the middle.  While this cake may not win any beauty awards, don't let appeara[...]
