Who doesn’t loooove garlic ? No, seriously, who ? Garlic is pretty special if you ask me. It’s considered as one of natures original wonder drugs :D and this is due to an active compound called allicin. According to online healthy life ambassadors ‘Natural Society’ dot com “A mere one milligram of allicin is nearly … Continue reading
Strawberries are back people – and they are so cheap – I picked up 500g yesterday for $2.00. They were sweet and delicious with the lush red skin and soft flesh, not sour and tasteless. It’s ideal to use fresh berries for this, at their most ripe too ! One of my favourite flavour combos … Continue reading
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

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.

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. Be warned : you may feel the urge to gorge on the icing, it’s full on. ** … 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
