Theme: Hor d’oeuvres Cookbook: Marie Claire Food + Drink See Recipe 1 – Stuffed mushrooms See Recipe 3 – Potato latkes with smoked salmon I would fail as a contestant on the Masterchef show because I’m not very good at planning my time in the kitchen! I can never really seem to rush, though it […]


Theme: Hor d’oeuvres Cookbook: Marie Claire Food + Drink See Recipe 1 – Stuffed Mushrooms See Recipe 2 – Prawn Toast The last recipe I chose was small potato latkes with smoked salmon and topped with garlic and herb cream cheese. I knew I would have oil left over from the prawn toasts so this […]


Theme: Indian Cookbook: The Complete Chicken Cookbook Apologies to everyone who was wondering whether I had abandoned the Cookbook Challenge only one week in!! I probably should have posted that I was going to be without internet access for a while! I have been in Adelaide since the middle of last week for hubby’s cousin’s […]


Theme: Citrus Cookbook: The Australian Women’s Weekly Bake Week 1 of the Cookbook Challenge is almost at an end and hopefully all participants got their recipes completed! It is still not too late for new people to join. You can find more details here. The theme for Week 1 was citrus. I think it actually […]


Thanks to Lindsay from POM I got delivery of a box of POM Wonderful juice which is 100% authentic pomegranate juice made from the Wonderful variety of pomegranates. I had seen these curvy bottles at Woolworths in the fruit and vegetables section, but never thought to try a bottle because to be honest, it is […]

We have lived in our current place since the end of last year and put up with the disgraceful eyesore of a broken, unlevel concrete driveway and weeds and dirt passing as a backyard! This was partly due to a lack of funds after renovating the house to do anything about our garden, but after […]


When I saw the recipe for pearl couscous on Belle from Ooh Look’s blog, I commented that I was intrigued as to what they would taste like and thanks to Liz from Haystac, I received a sample to try. Pearl couscous (also known as Israeli couscous) is different from normal couscous, being much larger in […]


Celebrity Masterchef is gracing our TV screens at the moment but I can’t say I like the format. I know the producers had to modify the format somewhat because Celebrity Masterchef is only being shown once a week, compared to the ‘non-celebrity’ version being shown 6 days a week. I think the celebrities don’t have […]

Brownies is another baked goodie that I have never tried making before, so I went out hunting for a brownie recipe to try. This was no easy task as there seem to be a gazillion brownie recipes out there, most of them claiming to be “the best”. How am I supposed to just choose one?! […]
