Pumpkin and Lentil ‘Sausage Rolls’

Every weekday morning Elliot and I have porridge and at the moment, the dark depths of winter, we have a cup of tea quickly proceeding the hot bowl of porridge. Now, I’m big on manners, and often I’ll pretend I haven’t heard Elliot until he uses please or thank you (is that rude?). This morningContinue reading “Pumpkin and Lentil ‘Sausage Rolls’”

Cheesy-Mite Scroll

I know Australia Day was yesterday and I’m a little late to the party but I really wanted to share this cheesy-mite scroll recipe and a little about my first baking experience with Elliot. I love to bake, sugary sweet treats, muffins, cookies, cakes anything but I also love to be ordered, quick and inContinue reading “Cheesy-Mite Scroll”

Quick and Easy Vegetable Slice

Some days I love to cook up a storm. I spend the day in the kitchen, multiple things on the go at once and I can coordinate everything. These are the days where I feel invincible. I had one of those days last weekend. I’d cooked dinner for 3 days in advance, this vegetable sliceContinue reading “Quick and Easy Vegetable Slice”

Sugar-Crusted, Spiced Macadamia Nuts

Things have been busy around these parts, but then who isn’t busy at this time of the year? There’s decorations to hang, presents to wrap, Christmas parties to attend, pantries to fill for the all important food day, and then regular life must still continue on top of all of that. On top of theContinue reading “Sugar-Crusted, Spiced Macadamia Nuts”

Amaze-balls! Raw Seed and Dried Fruit Power Balls.

I never thought I could be hungrier than while I was pregnant. I didn’t eat too much more than usual, but I did eat constantly. Since I’ve started breast feeding I’ve been absolutely famished, needing constant food and snacking on things that aren’t necessarily great for me, biscuits, cakes, brownies. So I needed to findContinue reading “Amaze-balls! Raw Seed and Dried Fruit Power Balls.”

Foodie Secret Santa

Nothing screams “Christmas Foodie Gift” to me like this amazing almond butter crunch.  So when Claire (Claire K Creations) emailed me asking if I wanted to be involved in a Foodie Secret Santa, it was the first thing that came to mind. I text my mum’s amazing friend Deb, to see if she was happyContinue reading “Foodie Secret Santa”

Maple Syrup Yoghurt

We try to do as much as we can at home.  Currently there’s 11 varying loaves of bread rising on the bench, we’ve just been out wrangling the chickens and J just washed up the food processor, after making hummus. (We also love to make our own tortillas, dips and preserves.) Something else that I’ve really loved making is my ownContinue reading “Maple Syrup Yoghurt”

Guest Post: Roasted Eggplant Dip

After discovering only recently young Clare use to be a vegetarian for quite some years I was taken back as my stint of vegetarianism only lasted 4 years.

Moroccan Carrot Dip

A small barn, no bigger than our kitchen, tables line the walls, a small selection of vegetables sitting atop them. The Buy Bellarine Produce barn is where we buy our fruit and vegetables once a week. The market is only open on Saturday’s and only supplies locally grown, seasonal produce. We buy only what theyContinue reading “Moroccan Carrot Dip”
