I originally wanted to make something with an Anzac spin on it. I thought of some kind of ”Anzac Bar” so that they could be easily consumed with your favourite brew after attending a dawn service. As I was making them I thought “don’t mess with the original”. Sometimes traditions are just [...]
Chocolate has always been one of my favourite things. However, over the years my tastes have changed slightly and more recently I have turned to the “dark side”, preferring nothing less than 70% cacao. That being said, I developed this recipe with others in mind also.
I have always loved giving [...]
Developing recipes can often be a challenging experience, especially when you are trying to create things that are free of grains, gluten, dairy, refined sugar and on occasion eggs and nuts. With a list like that even I think – what else is there? However, there is so much we can do with a few basic alternatives.

I have been trying to make any sort of Paleoish meringue/pavlova for a few weeks now. I think I have used at least three dozen egg whites (and made LOTS of mayonnaise with the yolks) and I finally think I’ve cracked it.

One of the things I love to do most in life is to bake. When I was (much) younger I used to sit on the bench and help my Mum cream together butter and sugar for the beginning of a cake - by hand of course - mixing it in the bowl with [...]
The weather has finally warmed up a little in Perth. For me, that means my eating habits change. I want to eat lighter, brighter food. So it is almost time to say goodbye to my curries and wintery stews and hello to more salads, shakes and ice creams. It also means the opportunity for more [...]
