3-Ingredient Emergency Cookies

Sometimes you just need a cookie. It’s a sentiment which seems to be a common theme around here these days — although it’s not quite as opinionated or parenthesised this time, ahem. These little morsles have made many an appearanc...

Summer Mango Salsa

For so long I took photos only for myself. And then I got better at taking photos and started shooting for other people. And somewhere along the line I kind of stopped shooting for myself. Then last weekend RJ requested fish tacos with mango salsa f...

Vegan Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

One day in late June… J: I just want to run away from it all R: . . . R: *raises eyebrow* J: oh, with you of course R: so when should we leave? Sometimes, in lieu of an immediate departure from the daily grind, chocolate for breakfast is the o...

Creamy Vegan Asparagus Soup

Not only is my brain currently as fried as the eggs I’ve been photographing lately, but each time this little corner of the internets has caught my eye I’ve avoided its accusing glare, brewed a fresh cup of tea and settled in for yet an...

Roasted Tomato & Tuna Pasta

I’ve realised recently (or perhaps I’ve been aware of it for quite a while, ahem) that I rarely share recipes for actual meals here. Cakes and cookies are well represented as are sides and sauces and things made with bourbon, but it seem...

Persimmon, Goat Cheese & Thyme Tartine

Remember my Radish & Butter open faced sandwich ramblings? Insert that here, but with two kinds of persimmons, goat cheese and thyme. Or if you’re in the mood for a bit of information read on — because not only am I a geek at heart bu...

Fruit Smash Toast

This isn’t a real recipe, not really. But that doesn’t make it any less perfect as an instant meal solution. You see I’m a huge fan of stuff on toast. It’s a quick and easy fix for pretty much any time of day — but tha...

Blueberry Coconut Smoothie Bowl

The pace of life since we got back from Japan has been hectic at best and, while I’m not complaining about days filled with shooting food for everyone else, I haven’t made anything for this little corner of the internet since those Hot Cr...

Buttered Peas & Avocado on Toast

They were a spur of the moment purchase at the farmers’ market. A bag of peas in the shell, sitting just next to the scale. The peas (along with some broccoli and cucumbers) went into a satchel — and then subsequently sat in the fridge, l...

Summer Fruit Platter Smoothie

Ok, ok, so you’re probably not going to make a fruit platter for the sole purpose of throwing it all in a blender. BUT if you were to make a fruit platter for a bbq and end up with leftovers once the festivities ended, throwing it all in a blen...

Summer Salad #2 – Peppers, Peaches, Cucumber & Fennel with Passionfruit, Chilli & Lime Dressing

If the first few days of 2015 are any indication of how the year will progress the next 12 months are so far looking glittery and warm — filled with equal quantities of vegetables and ice cream, underscored by full on work and much needed play,...

Summer Salad #1 – Radishes, Nectarines, Beans & Cherries

It arrived on my doorstep like a gift from the heavens. An overflowing box of seasonal produce, celebrating the start of summer fruit and veg and saving me from myself. As soon as it hit the table I unpacked every piece — and then did what any...

In My Kitchen: November 2014

It’s once again time for In My Kitchen and as per usual this is a collection of things from the past month — as seen over on Instagram — in loosely interpreted categories and no particular order. As always I’m linking up with Celia fo...

Kimchi Grilled Cheese

Apparently I’m on the local magpie mafia hit list. The first attempt came out of the blue as I was buzzed by a particularly aggressive black and white bird while walking down a path at a local reserve. I took my hair clip out thinking that may...

Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

For as much as I’ve been cooking and photographing food lately it’s all been for other people. The mojo to create new things had gone a bit walk-about… but as is the case with life the most simple of things can open the flood gates.

Strawberry & Blood Orange Frozen Margarita

There I go again, making summery, freezing cold treats in the dead of winter. Ironically this delectable beverage is, well other than the frozen bit, entirely seasonal. You see while strawberries are ripe for the picking (pun entirely intended) in NS...

Roasted Rainbow Winter Vegetables

A week or two ago inspiration landed on my front step. It came in the form of a simply gorgeous hamper of winter fruit and veggies from the lovely people at Sydney Markets, and it arrived just in time. You see kitchen motivation at that point had bee...

Skillet Baked Eggs – Kale, Tomato Beans & Dukkah

By the looks of my posts these days you’d think all we eat is dessert. My Instagram feed however is quite a different story, a bit more of a social media smoke and mirrors filtered within an inch of its life realistic view of what makes it to t...

Roasted Pear, Parmesan & Spiced Pecan Salad

Another one from the archives, a salad made and shot last September — after Cape Cod and before our road trip — at mom’s farm. Two weeks amongst row of pears dropping fruit at our feet and grapes staining our fingers purple. Some...

In My Kitchen: March 2014

I managed to only miss one month this time in linking up with Celia for an In My Kitchen post, yet it still seems to be a big one. Here it goes… Kitchen shenanigans A few years back I stopped buying tomatoes in tins. Tins are lined with BPA (ba...
