Hedgehog Divine

This super delicious recipe was inspired by a recipe I recently made from wholefoods simply’s website.   The coconut rough was incredible and after some contemplating I thought I’d try my hand at mixing up my own combo to see what the outcome would be. Warning, don’t read any further if you don’t want to spend…

Ginger Nut Biscuits

Believe it or not, I’ve had a post sitting here for almost half a year half written to make traditional ginger nut biscuits.  Unfortunately I’m still yet to make them (it will happen I promise), but in the meanwhile I thought I would share this beautiful and simple recipe that I found on Wholefood Simply…

Coconut Rough

Coconut rough happens to be one of my all time favourite chocolate treats. I love the crunchy coconut and the creamy chocolate combined together, in fact I find it highly addictive and morish.  Now imagine being told you could make a vegan, dairy free, wheat-free version of this treat.  I’m about to break this news…

Clean Green Smoothies

I promise that this blog is not about to turn into a health food detox site, although some of the recipes below may make you think otherwise.    I’m skipping the morning ritual of toast at the moment, but I doubt it will be forever.  Anyone that knows me is aware that I love food way…

Quinoa Granola

Another super easy recipe to make by Donna Hay. This time around I’ve chosen one of the breakfast dishes and I was looking forward to a change in what I’ve been eating of late.  Firstly, I did substitute the oats for barley and some spelt flakes due to certain issues I’ve been having with oats…

BBQ Series: Potato Salad

Rice Paper Rolls

These babies have been sitting in my ‘to blog about’ list for over a year now.   Each time we make them I forget to take photo’s, or the lighting is really bad, or our rice paper rolls are so slapped together I really didn’t want you to see just how messy they can get.   The…

Orange Vegetable and Ginger Soup

Somewhere in the back of my memory I’d retained the idea of this soup that I first read about on Frugal Feedíng’s Blog.   The idea sounded kinda cool, but given that his posting was in our summer, it wasn’t something I was keen to try immediately and so I forgot about it.   Fast forward to…

Discovering The Life Changing Loaf of Bread

I’m always open to new idea’s when it comes to cooking, and frequently seek inspiration from the people around me, as much as I do from recipe books.   This little gem comes courtesy of an old work colleague and friend of mine, Emily.   Seeing her version of this beautiful seedy bread on Facebook inspired me…

Sweet Corn Soup all the way from En. Zed.

My very first guest post, this recipe comes from my gorgeous friend Tui across the ditch(aka New Zealand), as we like to say here in Australia.   We actually met cooking in a restaurant in Melbourne, Australia, many, many years ago and struck up a wonderful friendship that has endured us both moving to different…
