I made these last night as a birthday cake alternative for my mother-in-law. I think gluten free food needs to be pretty and not have such a stigma attached to it as being boring. What’s prettier than a red rose ? I find them seductively beautiful; the smell, the velvety feel of their petals, the … Continue reading

Bring on New Shanghai in Brisbane City, Queens Plaza. Tucked away in the bottom level food court next to Coles, lies the busy little sanctum of really good Shanganese food. We were greeted and seated almost immediately and, because we had our little Parker-Bear with us, we were given a high-chair. My partner Bart and … Continue reading
I was lucky enough to join some of Brisbanes best female bloggers for the menu launch of Tonys Italian Table – a 9 course degustation like share plate menu that is available for 6 people or more at $50pp. The menu is inspired by Tonys love for classical italian food that reminds him of family … Continue reading
I cannot begin to explain how much I love panzanella. If there’s one thing my good friends know about me, it’s that I do not like raw tomatoes. My one exception to this rule that I will eat them pending they are paired with strong robust flavours – and you know what? Panzanella is exactly … Continue reading
This kind of pasta is on many of my friends favourites list. I have to give credit to my Mimi; my aunt makes the best amatriciana in the world. Its so saucy and delicious. Traditionally, this pasta sauce is made with dried pork cheek or pancetta, tomato and chilli, but varies across menus and dinner … Continue reading

I have had so many awesome comments regarding these cupcakes in the last few days, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you. The sour cream gives these cupcakes a real lightness and fluffy interior with an wonderful banana subtleness.

One of the first things I learnt to cook (and love) when I started living out of home was Chicken Tonights Golden Mustard Simmer Sauce – with chicken + green beans and rice. Simple huh? I would have this at least once a week. It used to be my comfort meal.However, after having Parker, I … Continue reading
This is the cupcake recipe I use over and over again. If I need flavoured cupcakes I usually add lime zest, or coconut flakes, cocoa and even sometimes frozen berries. (P.S I am also basking in the way that this photo ended up!! I love it. I am so proud – don’t judge me!) *Pre-heat … Continue reading

I have been on holiday for the past week now. It’s been wonderful. We road tripped it down from Brisbane, through New South Wales, to Canberra. Our mission – Summernats 25. The biggest, most bogan car festival weekend in Australia. It’s the kind of festival where no shirts, mullets and rats tails are acceptable and where the … Continue reading

I’ve seen many variations of this recipe. This is to my taste, but change it to yours as you are making the sauce. This recipe makes a buttload. I call this noodies because there is no sauce as such, and they look naked but the flavour is pretty amazing. A perfect example of good food, … Continue reading
I had a bunch of silverbeet that was looking a bit sad in my fridge. I had planned on making Krys’ Silverbeet and Caramelized Onion Tart but because we were in Sydney, I didn’t get the chance. Now not knowing what to make, I came up with this beauty. It was super delish, simple and economic.. and I … Continue reading
