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”

Flavoured Sourdough – Honey and Oat Sourdough and Pumpkin, Feta and Sage

If you enjoy this post and want to learn more about sourdough you can subscribe to my newsletter and get my ‘Getting Started With Sourdough’ ebook for free. Like I said when I posted last week about the pecan, walnut and rosemary loaf, baking bread was becoming a bit of a chore. But recently, having found 25kgContinue reading “Flavoured Sourdough – Honey and Oat Sourdough and Pumpkin, Feta and Sage”

Potato and Rosemary Pizza with Broccoli Pesto

Not too long ago, I posted a picture on Instagram.  It was of the last slice of an amazing home-made sour-dough pizza that I had intended to blog about, but it was so delicious that it all got eaten before any photos were taken (does that ever happen to you?).So we decided to replicate it.  SadlyContinue reading “Potato and Rosemary Pizza with Broccoli Pesto”

Pork Belly Sliders with Brioche Buns

My parents didn’t just come around for cheescake last week, they also came for these.  The pork belly and coleslaw sliders.  I’d never cooked pork belly before and didn’t just want to cook it with roast veggies because we have another roast in the freezer for this fortnight. I wanted to make something that I’dContinue reading “Pork Belly Sliders with Brioche Buns”

Broad Bean Pasta with Parmesan

J hadn’t really ever had a vegetable garden until we started our small plot here, and I suppose this also leads on to the fact that he hadn’t eaten a lot of vegetables straight from the plant.  This year I’ve been able to see the joy on his face as he watches things grow fromContinue reading “Broad Bean Pasta with Parmesan”

Home-made Burgers

I had a plan! Dinner… Food is usually involved in my plans. It had to be great, inspired… The pressure was all coming from me. The motivation was to use some of our preserves, the inspiration, this post. On the way home I bought some Otway Free Range Pork. Dinner was easy, but so delicious. I added to theContinue reading “Home-made Burgers”

Mum’s Cookbook

There’s been so many fantastic Christmassy type recipes pop into my blog reader that I’ve been inspired to do some of my own.  But when I thought about it, there are very few things we cook in the lead up to Christmas. Our Christmas really only happens on the 25th of December.  We have brunchContinue reading “Mum’s Cookbook”

At J’s Request.

Every morning in bed I read blogs and J reads The Age, both on our iPads. It feels like the modern version of the Saturday morning news paper reading.  I update him on my friends posts, and the ‘important’ bits of the news (from twitter) and he updates me on interesting info he finds inContinue reading “At J’s Request.”

Christmas Baking

I read lots of food blogs and I’m absolutely loving the amazing amount of Christmas baking that has been on the blogosphere over the last week or so. I thought I would share some with you guys. I absolutely love read Fig Jam and Lime Cordial by Celia.  This recipe for racines cake looks like theContinue reading “Christmas Baking”

Date and Apple Mini Muffins

Roller derby has really inspired me to watch what I eat, and become fitter. To pass our level one, we had to demonstrate our skating skills, transitions (turning backwards while skating and continuing to skate), falls (falling correctly, on our knees), 50 laps of the derby track in 10 minutes, and a wall sit INContinue reading “Date and Apple Mini Muffins”

Hunter and Gatherer.

J is an active guy, he’s always out and about.  When we lived in Mount Beauty last year, he would go out nearly every day for a mountain bike ride.  Here, there’s no mountains, it’s a 45 minute drive to the closest mountain bike riding area, so he bought a sea kayak. He loves thisContinue reading “Hunter and Gatherer.”
