Crispy Skinned Barramundi with Apple & Fennel Remoulade and Toasted Hazelnuts

With the silly season thrust upon us it can be difficult to maintain a bit of a healthy eating pattern….within reason of course…I’m not a mad woman and can absolutely justify the scoffing of scorched almonds as an ode to Christmas. This is an easy dish, and super fast if you have a food processor. … Continue reading

Healthy Crumbed Fish & Chips

This one’s a crowd pleaser and by crowd pleaser I mean a dish the entire family will eat….even the fussiest small person (not pointing any fingers youngest child of mine).  The added bonus is it’s simple and fast. By the time you drove to the fish & chip shop, ordered, waited and came home with … Continue reading

Greek Nachos

I do love to gather a crowd and feed them all good & proper. This dish is a winner with my entire family from the ground (little ones) up (oldies). It’s super fast, simple and as I often already have most of these ingredients in the pantry/fridge, it can be  fantastic for those unexpected guests. … Continue reading

Crispy skinned Barramundi with Wasabi Mayonnaise & Asian Greens

Sometimes the best way to maintain healthy eating habits is to take the question mark out of the equation….you know those moments, you’re approaching lunch time, your head is in the fridge wondering what to have. It is precisely at those times that … 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

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
