Now that gastro interruptus has subsided, I find myself holding soup. Loads and loads of soup. I don’t know about you but that’s what I do when I’m sick – make soup. Chicken and sweet corn soup is a favourite recipe my mum has been perfecting since we were kids – I believe it is [...]
I have no idea why I started a food blog. I haven’t updated the blog since July and there’s a badge widget sitting on my side bar mocking me, reminding me of a cooking mojo gone missing. There has been so much cucumber and so many sausages because quite frankly that is all my son [...]

There is something so invigorating about markets. All that fresh food combined with the intoxicating smells, it lifts the spirits and it’s usually good fun for the kids too. Not so much for you when they decide they want your dim sim. South Melbourne Market dim sims are an icon in Melbourne, the queues [...]
I’m about the chunkiest I’ve been in some time. I’m not entirely surprised by this since I recently took to eating cream and jam buns again for the first time since Year 8 but it still displeases me greatly. Exercise has fallen somewhere behind children, uni assignments and blogging and I miss the effect it [...]
It starts with a dress…… Linking up with My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday
Marrying an Italian Australian has some wonderful benefits. Sure, there was the time I ate boiled pig fat just to keep a Nonna happy but you only live once and imagine my delight at being given instructions for killing a chicken – “just put your foot on the flappy thing and twist”. Excellent! My husband [...]
Mexican food is having quite the revival at the moment. Personally I love anything involving guacamole and melted cheese but I’m even more enamoured with coriander. It’s a contentious herb. A friend once coined it the “devil’s weed” so this salsa is probably not for him. For anyone else not particularly impressed with the store [...]
This dish gets around. In fact, it’s been flaunting its wares around our family parties for years yet somehow manages to keep its reputation in tact. Probably because it’s healthy, the kids (usually) eat it and quick. It’s a great “bring a plate” dish too. Grate 375 g (about 2) zucchinis and one onion. Squeeze [...]
I’VE lost my cooking mojo lately. In between boiling plain rice and eggs for a fussy three year old and pureeing baby food I don’t often have the time (or inclination) for fancy food. IN an attempt to reclaim the lost cook within I’m starting a weekly link-up of easy recipes and hope you can [...]
