Tomato & Sumac Onion Salad

Tomato & Sumac Onion Salad

I had a little Middle Eastern inspired dinner party last weekend and true to form, I had too many bubbles and forgot to photograph the main event. It happens Every. Single. Time. I will be making the main event again as it was a divine Spiced Lamb Backstrap with...
Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Salad

Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Salad

I had both my boys home for dinner the other day and I always like to make a bit of a fuss when we are all together. I had an abundance of Mediterranean vegetables in the fridge (fennel, zucchini, red & yellow capsicum) that I thought would pair really well with...
Potato Salad

Potato Salad

I wasn’t sure what to call this recipe as Potato Salad didn’t really seem to quite cut it. However, the title would have been a bit ridiculous and a little something like Sublime Potato Salad with Duck Egg & Seeded Mustard Mayonnaise, Boiled Egg, Dill,...
Classic Potato Bake

Classic Potato Bake

Who doesn’t love a potato bake?  My kids have been begging me to make this for a while now as it is not something we indulge in very often.  Why?  Because when I make a potato bake it is the real deal, no skinny alternatives, just cream and cheese (with loads of...
Asparagus, Bacon & Roast Tomato Salad

Asparagus, Bacon & Roast Tomato Salad

Whole Cauliflower Au Gratin

Roasted Caprese Salad

Roasted Caprese Salad

An old classic with an Em’s Food twist!  You really can’t go past this food union of tomatoes, basil and mozzarella but why not jazz it up a bit?  Gorgeously sweet and caramelised roasted tomatoes, peppery, fragrant basil with gloriously chewy but moist on...
Pumpkin, Kale & Pine Nut Au Gratin

Pumpkin, Kale & Pine Nut Au Gratin

I love a good old potato bake but in my mind it was time for a bit of a makeover.  Sweet pumpkin, earthy kale and little nutty pops of flavour from the pine nuts made this a sensational side that the whole family loved.  So much so that I made a large one thinking I...
Em’s Classic Caesar Salad

Em’s Classic Caesar Salad

I thought it only fitting  for my 200th recipe that I finally relented and shared my “famous” Caesar Salad.  Now I don’t like to brag (Pfffft)  but I have had caesar salad many times and I have been told on many occasions that mine is the best.  The...
