Veggie-Full Beef Burgers

We’re trying to pack veggies in all over the place. I shared how we added veggies into our bolognese a couple of weeks ago. We made these burgers and they were probably the best burger patties I’ve ever made. Now I’m not going to add the recipe because I didn’t measure anything. But I really wantContinue reading “Veggie-Full Beef Burgers”

An almost free dinner

I’m bursting with pride. Am I allowed to write that? Tonight Jay cooked a dinner that cost us less than a $1 for all 3 serves. When I was writing our meal plan this fortnight I added a Jamie Olive dish in haste. I knew a lot of the ingredients were in season and IContinue reading “An almost free dinner”

Lazy Lady’s Frittata

We got home from camping at 2pm Saturday, we’d been in the car since 10am and we spent an hour unpacking. The last thing I wanted to do was to cook dinner. We could have ordered take away but honestly I couldn’t be bothered competing with the tourists in our town for fish and chips,Continue reading “Lazy Lady’s Frittata”

My First Ever Gingerbread House

Study procrastination does amazing things sometimes. While Jay has been in Sri Lanka (he’s home tonight YAY!!!), I’ve been fairly productive. This morning I cleared out my wardrobe, I’ve done all the Christmas shopping, visited both sets of my grandparents, been to Wollangarra and made my first ever gingerbread house. I asked for tips onContinue reading “My First Ever Gingerbread House”

Asian Chicken and Vegetable Soup

There’s a pox on our house. I swear, we’ve done something and I can’t figure out what it is. I had tonsillitis, now Jay has tonsillitis and Elliot’s got full on snot, so much so that his nose is bleeding from all the wiping. I shared this on Instagram and the absolutely lovely Megann fromContinue reading “Asian Chicken and Vegetable Soup”

Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe

“I feel like Chicken Tonight, like Chicken Tonight” I remember running around the house singing these words when we were having sweet and sour chicken when I was a kid. Regardless of the brand of sweet sticky sauce, we would dance and sing these add lyrics. I loved this dinner. I’ve recently started cooking sweetContinue reading “Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe”

Cauliflower Soup with Chorizo Croutons

I was so relieved to sit down to a bowl of this delicious comforting cauliflower soup for lunch today. I crisped up the last of the chorizo croutons in the fry pan and let out a big sigh as I nestled into the couch. You see this morning, I dropped my iPhone in my friendsContinue reading “Cauliflower Soup with Chorizo Croutons”

Troubleshooting Your Sourdough Starter

People often come to me with questions about sourdough, what’s right, what’s wrong etc so I thought I’d collate some of my knowledge (and learn some more) and share it with you. Sourdough starter is a living culture, reacting to changes in its environment. Usually, minor changes to feed frequency or temperature of culturing locationContinue reading “Troubleshooting Your Sourdough Starter”
