Chicken & Leek Pot Pies

I do love a good old fashioned meat pie but they aren’t on anybody’s healthy eats list. That’s why I have a bit of a crush on the pot pie. They still have the all the lovely flavours of the original with a fraction of the kilojoules. The benefit of the “pot” in the pot … Continue reading

Lamb Kofta with Greek Salad & Tzatziki

All Hands on Deck! I like to make lamb kofta during the school holidays…..it’s a hands on experience that I can get the kids involved in. Lots of grating and mixing with hands. I do the chopping, they do the measuring and the mixing and shaping. My theory is if they have a sense of … Continue reading

Seafood Noodle Soup

  This gorgeous soup will warm you up for winter and is still light enough for summer…win win!  You get the best of both worlds with this one…it’s low in calories and also very nutrient dense which makes it the holy grail in terms of nutrition. With the prawns and fish you get omega 3’s, … Continue reading

Rack of lamb with a gremolata crust and bean casserole

Originally I hail from New Zealand. My husband’s heritage is Greek. Quite frankly, if lamb isn’t on high rotation on the menu at our house I’m fairly certain we’d have to hand in our passports.  My favourite cut of lamb is the lamb rack, make sure you have the butcher French it for you…this is … Continue reading

Chicken Meatball Red Curry

As promised, here is recipe number 2 in the chicken meatball collection. This recipe is written as a stand alone, from start to finish, whole kit and caboodle recipe but if you have children and they haven’t quite developed their spicy tastebuds yet, I’ve developed this recipe to go along with the previous Spaghetti & … Continue reading

Spaghetti & Chicken Meatballs

When you love food as much as I do and you have children, it can sometimes be hard to satisfy the adult AND the child palate. I don’t know about you, but I get a little sick of making two separate meals, so at least a couple of times a week I like to make … Continue reading

Grandma’s Vegetable & Pearl Barley Soup

I didn’t realise I had a quirky way of making vegetable soup until I started serving it to other people….it’s just the way my grandmother always made it. She was the goods in the kitchen so I wouldn’t dream of altering her method (too much). My grandparents were perhaps the ones that started my love … Continue reading

Vegetable & Lentil Curry – #meatfreemonday

I like to have at least one vegetarian meal a week but sometimes it can be a bit hard to get the husband to agree with my nutritional philosophy…..unless this vegetable & lentil curry is on the menu. For some reason, men quite like a bit of a curry and while ordinarily he’d probably prefer … Continue reading

Chilli con carne

   Chilli Con carne  (with sneaky mushrooms even a food detective can’t detect) I’ve said it before, there’s a good chance I will say it again also….mushrooms are gorgeous little creatures! They are nutrient dense (at a low 96kj for every 100g….that’s a lot of bang for your buck), they are high in protein and B … Continue reading

Curry Chicken Salad with a Lime Thyme Dressing

Recipe number 2 for the mamamia foodblogger idol competition…..thought I’d get a little creative with Rachel’s yoghurt and make a gorgeous curry chicken salad. I used some lovely spices that not only give the chicken a little kick but they are also good for you too….especially the turmeric which has anti-inflammatory properties. I knocked up a spicy little … Continue reading
