Kale and Corn Fritters

Kale & Corn Fritters I really enjoy eating dark leafy greens. I love the texture, the taste and their versatility. My 16 month daughter (I will call her Potpot here from now on), does not share my passion…yet. I see her carefully pick off shreds of wilted kale from other, more desirable, foods on her […]

Breastfeeding my tongue and lip tied baby

Note: This post contains detailed information about my breastfeeding journey with my daughter who was born with a posterior tongue tie and an upper lip tie. I am writing about it here because when I was struggling with breastfeeding, I scoured the Internet, looking for women who had experienced the same issues and I clung […]

Hazelnut cake with chocolate glaze

I’ve been going a little bit barking baking mad lately. In addition to having an ever growing ‘to-do’ list, including some important PhD reading and writing I have struggled to get around to, I also have a small project on the burner that means I have to put in some serious kitchen time – trialling […]

DIY Macadamia Nut Paste

A while ago I wrote a post for some energy balls that contained macadamia nut paste. A reader asked whether she could make her own, as she was unable to source some locally. Yes, making your own paste is easy. And as an added bonus, it generally works out cheaper than buying it ready made. […]

Date, nut and seed energy balls

Apologies. I know I have not posted anything in quite a while. I have a good excuse though… I am happy to announce that Gracie Rose Millichamp was born on December 17th. Gracie has been keeping me really busy these last twelve weeks (I can’t believe it has been that long already!). I’ve had to […]

More simple summer entertaining… Strawberry and ricotta tart

Everyone loves a good tart. In my last post I promised that I would share this recipe. This is one of the easiest tart recipes I have ever come across. It is a mish mash of two recipes – I have used the pastry from a Donna Hay cookbook called Modern Classics Book 2 (because of […]

Smells like summer… Basil pesto

Smells like summer… Basil pesto

There are a few farmers’ market items that simply scream ‘summer is around the corner!’ to me…. Big bunches of fresh, sweet basil; early season stone fruit and the sale of blueberries by the bucket load (no kidding!). Whilst I prefer to wait for true summer for my stone fruit fix, the basil at the […]

Why all the food restrictions during pregnancy?

Why all the food restrictions during pregnancy?

Ok, I admit, I have a vested interest in this topic. Why? Well, I’m 6 months pregnant and to be honest I miss feta on my salads and sandwiches. I crave ricotta smeared over sourdough toast with a drizzle of honey, long for some silky raw salmon and tuna sashimi, and pine after a soft-boiled […]

Fig and walnut oat cookies

I am so happy I am clicking my heels together in glee. Why? I am the proud owner of a brand spanking new kitchen – complete with a new, massive, electric oven and gas cooktop! Yippee! Whilst the rest of the house renovations are not yet complete – I still have plywood and a classy […]

Power Porrij – Product Review

When I grew up, my dad would make us kids porridge for breakfast now and then in winter. It came in one form only – made with traditional rolled oats and full cream milk (my family were late starters on the reduced fat milk bandwagon!) topped with a smattering of soft brown sugar on top […]
