PHOTO TO COME
I have wanted to make a paleo “pavlova” wreath since I started this way of life many years ago. I think I can adapt many things to “become paleo” however I may have met my match……for now. Not that this recipe is a failure, it just isn’t as perfect as [...]
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 [...]
Food journeys, diets, eating plans, lifestyle choices. These all evolve, grow and change, at times somewhat dramatically throughout our lives.
Food has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. My “journey” began as a youngster in the kitchen with my Mum. I remember helping to make sausage rolls for [...]
Sharing recipes of any kind is a very special thing. Some of them involve family traditions and secret ingredients; many are not even written down and only learnt through teaching the next generation.

Several times I have mentioned that the inspiration to create a new recipe can come from many and varied places. Although this recipe was developed more out of necessity than inspiration.
Most places I’ve lived I have been fortunate enough to have two fridge/freezers or at the least a large fridge [...]
Inspiration to create a new recipe can come from many and varied places. Tasting something that someone else has made, pictures of food, someone else’s recipe or even a Birthday card.
I had a Birthday recently and was fortunate enough to receive many warm wishes in the form of cards [...]
I love showing people the amazing features of the Thermomix. Watching their faces light up when we create icing sugar from raw sugar in just 9 second and 2 litres of fresh fruit sorbet in 2 minutes with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The smallest, smartest kitchen machine as it is known [...]
In a recent post I mentioned my effort to cook with ingredients that were in season.
I think a big part of what drives me to do so is shopping for fresh fruit and vegetables at local markets. When the new season produce is on the shelf I am like a [...]
