Thai Fish Cakes with Salad Cups

Thai Fish Cakes with Salad Cups

*Thai Fish Cakes Revised Recipe* Thai Fish Cakes have always been my favourite Thai starter so I thought why not upsize them!  The quintessential balance of flavours……. hot, salty, sweet and sour that make Thai and other Asian cuisines so darn good are a stand out in...
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,...
Vegan Chickpea Curry Stuffed Eggplants

Vegan Chickpea Curry Stuffed Eggplants

Ok, so I want to make one thing clear. I am definitely not a vegan and while I respect vegans and what they stand for, I am definitely not becoming a vegan. I did however, want to challenge myself to cook a vegan meal and not just any vegan meal, because that could...
Avocado on Toast

Avocado on Toast

For years my breakfast consisted of a cup of coffee (and I will admit a winnie blue in my younger days) as I was in too much of a rush getting the kids ready, I didn’t have time to eat. Not so anymore. Breakfast has become one of my favourite meals (hence why...
Witlof, White Anchovy & Ruby Grapefruit Canapes`

Witlof, White Anchovy & Ruby Grapefruit Canapes`

My Husband and I did a trip to Greece a couple of months ago and etched in my memory are these amazing Canapes` that we had at a sensational restaurant in Old Town Mykonos. I will admit, I have added a few more ingredients to mine as their version was total...
Beef Cheek & Porcini Ragu with Pappardelle

Beef Cheek & Porcini Ragu with Pappardelle

I invested in a pressure cooker (or multi cooker) about 12 months ago and I love it. I gave my old slow cooker away as I found that I preferred the speed of a pressure cooker and the fact that I can brown, cook and simmer in the one pot. I can still use it like a slow...
Freekeh, Lamb & Carrot Salad with Tahini Yoghurt

Freekeh, Lamb & Carrot Salad with Tahini Yoghurt

Freekeh, Quinoa, Bulgur, Farro, Amaranth…….where does the list of Ancient Grains end? And where the bloody hell have they come from? Is it just me or have they all come out of the wood work in the last couple of years? I consider myself to be fairly...
Punjabi Chicken Curry with Raita

Punjabi Chicken Curry with Raita

Just when I think there couldn’t be another curry to cook, as I have cooked hundreds of them, along comes this deliciously authentic, Punjabi Chicken Curry that I found online. It is an SBS recipe and I have probably changed its authenticity somewhat, as I just...
Malaysian Curry Paste

Malaysian Curry Paste

Another winning Curry Paste to add to the basics collection. Fragrant and delicious, my Husband claimed this to be the best dish I ever made and it all came down to a few fresh ingredients whacked in a blender. Too easy 🙂   Makes approximately 1 cup   5...
Summer Sausage Tray Bake

Summer Sausage Tray Bake

When we had our firstborn son, my Husband was in his first year of a pretty demanding five year degree. Being the poor Uni student family that we were, I had to get creative with cooking and that is probably where a large portion of my love of cooking came from....
Zucchini Rotolo with Ricotta & Peas

Zucchini Rotolo with Ricotta & Peas

I have seen many versions of this type of recipe lately, and thought I should probably get on the Zucchini pasta substitute bandwagon ASAP. What can I say? I am a massive follower of food fashion and I am amazed at its ever evolving capabilities. I mean, who ever...
Indonesian Chicken with Cashew Satay

Indonesian Chicken with Cashew Satay

Um, yum. This was a gorgeous take on an Indonesian Satay that is usually served on skewers. I didn’t have time to chop and thread, so I thought I would use tender chicken thigh fillets instead. By all means, use chicken breast if you prefer but I just find that...
