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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

My Vietnam food adventure and a Vietnamese-inspired tofu noodle salad

I fell in love with Vietnamese food as a young uni student in Sydney. One of my besties introduced me to Pho Bo (rare beef rice noodle soup) and I was hooked.  A couple of years ago the same friend and I went on a food tour of Cabramatta – Sydney’s Little Vietnam – with […]

Fresh green harissa

If you like your food hot, spicy and a little exotic then this is just the thing for you. Fiery chilli-laden harissa is one of my favourite condiments to make. At this time of year when the sun is out and BBQ season is in full swing, I use it to spice up barbecued meats, […]

Corn coriander rainbow salad

Did you know that you can eat corn raw? I remember finding that out only a few years ago when I saw a girl at uni munching her way through a raw corn cob as she kicked back on the grass. What a revelation! I grew up eating corn cobs that went from the bag […]

Kitchen sink crunchy salad

Posted by on Nov 2, 2011 in Blog, Latest News, Recipes, Salads | 5 Comments

  This salad is especially for all of the people out there that think of limp iceberg lettuce, soggy cucumber and insipid tomato when the word ‘salad’ is mentioned. This salad is none of the above. It will challenge such perceptions! It is crunchy, fresh, filling and bursting with flavour. Almost ten years ago I […]
