A lovely high fibre salad that everybody loves. A friend who dared to cook for ‘the chef’, made this salad for me and I asked her for the recipe. This is my similar version of that recipe, as I have adjusted the dressing ever so slightly. As for the origin of the original recipe we are unsure.Read More
Frittatas are such an easy meal to throw together when time is short and the fridge is looking bare. Although I’ve used potato, leek and Gruyère, you can substitute any vegetable, herb or cheese. Perfect served hot or cold, either on its own or with a green salad.Read More

It seems when you burn the candle at both ends for a whole year, you eventually run out of wax - I think I'm going to fall over the finish line at the end of this week and then proceed to lay horizontal for quite some time. I'm so thankful for what's been done and just as thankful to have the chance to stop.
Bags filled with cooking equipment, summer clothes and boxes of books, we jumped on a plane north and before we knew it we'd landed in balmy Ballina. Heading inland to the colourful village of Bangalow, we stopped in at the 'one street' town of Newrybar for a bite of lunch.Read More
A long weekend at our place usually means a sleep in and late breakfast together on the holiday Monday, and today was no different. Pancakes are always a favourite to cook when it is a slow morning without schedule.Read More
Last Saturday or was it the one before? Time is racing by....I saw Christmas Puddings in the shops yesterday and wondered where has this year got too!
