Breakfast smoothie bowl

Smoothies can be a quick and easy breakfast if you’re on the move fast…..however, I quite like to eat my food rather than drink it so I’ve made a smoothie bowl that you can eat with a spoon. You need to start this one a day ahead as freezing the bananas before you blend gives … Continue reading

Broccoli, Silver Beet & Feta with Brown Rice

I like to do a big batch cook off on Sundays to prepare for the week ahead. No excuses for bad choices if I have a whole heap of good ones already made in my fridge just waiting to jump into my belly. I can’t claim the origins of this recipe….Aunty Kathy had been staying … Continue reading

Smoked Salmon, & Ricotta Pillows with Asparagus

We all know I’m a big fan of spending time OUTSIDE of the kitchen when I’m entertaining. My recipe for smoked salmon and ricotta pillows with asparagus fits that bill just nicely. This lovely little dish is my go to entrée if I’m having company for dinner. It’s looks fabulous on the plate (with minimal … Continue reading

Shakshuka

I learned how to make this dish when it was the Italian version “Eggs in Purgatory” which is a fantastic title. This version has a middle eastern bent with the flavours of the cumin and paprika and the kick of the harissa paste. It also has the added bonus of  having another fabulous title, “Shakshuka!” I don’t … Continue reading

Curry seasoned Barramundi and Scallops with a Fennel & Orange Salad and Sumac Labna

While there are a fair few elements on this dish, I promise you it only takes 30 mins from start to finish and the best part?…..you can make all of the steps, right up until the actual cooking of the fish & scallops, before you guests arrive! So the only actual kitchen time you’ll be … Continue reading

Whenever I see recipes for the full American Thanksgiving dinner I always see Pumpkin Pie on the menu with a reference to “pumpkin spice”. An abundance of … Continue reading

Salmon & Leek Spaghetti with Spinach and Capers

I may have to renounce any claim I have to Kiwiness with this statement, but I’m not a fan of sauvignon blanc. I know, it’s almost the national drink of my home country..at the very least, it is a drink that New Zealanders make particularly well….and I can’t stand it. For some reason, perhaps my … Continue reading

Steak & Pomegranate Salad with salsa verde and feta cream

I know spring is in the air when the pomegranates start making their way onto my plate. I love their crunch and their juicy flavour and the fact that they are seriously good for you. They’re a great source of vitamin C and dietary fibre and a great antioxidant (plus they’re really pretty). This salad … Continue reading

Vietnamese Chicken Pho

I do love Vietnamese food and you can’t beat a gorgeous Pho when you’re feeling a bit under the weather. They generally take a bit of time and dedication to make and if you have the wherewithal I highly recommend sourcing an authentic from scratch recipe…BUT…really, who has the time these days? So here is … Continue reading

Greek Bruschetta a’la husband

The husband doesn’t get a lot of time in the kitchen at our house. Now that’s not out of sheer laziness it’s just that it is my happy place and he really doesn’t get a look in most days. Don’t get me wrong, he can be ridiculously lazy in some respects, but in this particular … Continue reading
