Slow Cooked Pork Belly

I’ve been dreaming of using my slow cooker all summer.   I know it doesn’t produce heat so really it should’ve been getting a work out way earlier than now, but somehow I couldn’t bring myself to think about eating a warm casserole style meal in the middle of the heat we’ve been having.  Oh…

Lemon and Poppyseed Scones

As I mentioned in an earlier post a week ago that I’ve been exploring different variations of soda bread, mixing it up with different grains.  The presence of poppy seeds in my kitchen because of this has led to this variation on an old classic and one that I thought was worth sharing.   The…

Roasted Carrot, Lemon and Harissa Dip

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a dip recipe with you all and to be honest, it has been a while since I’ve made some to share in our house as well.  We have the fall back guacamole but even that has been rare with avocados being pretty expensive.  I’m not quite sure what…

Fluffy Pancakes

We recently had our neices and nephew over for a sleepover.  For the untrained Aunt and Uncle it’s fun but also exhausting.  Answering a million questions and playing adjudicator over toys and games.   There is always lots of upsides though.  One of them for me is making pancakes, something that I only tend to…

An amazing array of food and wine creators, importers and distributors all get…

Review: Riverbar & Kitchen

I recently was treated to breakfast at Matt Moran’s venture, Riverbar & Kitchen, located down on Brisbane’s Eagle St Pier. To begin with, the location is magic.  The day we were there was sunny, and whilst it was early, I can’t think of a better place to be in the am having a coffee and…
