Pizza Crackers

For me this time of year always heralds the start of the festive season – between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year (not to mention a lot of family birthdays sprinkled around these dates) there’s a lot of entertaining taking place in the next 10 weeks, yep 10 weeks! Having a few delicious appetisers that can be […]

Toffee Almond Chocolate Semifreddo

I’m a big fan of semifreddos. They are the perfect answer to homemade ice cream for those that don’t own an ice cream maker. They’re super easy and a great make ahead dessert. Even though I do have an ice cream maker I find that I veer towards semifreddos a lot more than traditional ice […]

Miso Crab Risotto with Ginger Butter & Crispy Tarragon

It’s hard to photograph a risotto that is almost all white and make it look appealing, well hard for me anyway, but I can assure you that this crab risotto from Donna Hay is very delicious and very indulgent. I love the use of miso and ginger that give this risotto just a little nudge […]

Blue Cheese & Walnut Crackers

Apologies for my long absence – we’ve just returned from a long holiday to Canada and Alaska. I do normally publish posts when we’re away but the scenery and natural splendour of that part of the world were so amazing that I wanted to spend as little time as possible on my laptop. As you […]

Martin Boetz’s Thai Crispy Pork Belly & Pineapple Curry

Unfortunately he left the helm to pursue other ventures which is such a shame as he really set the gold standard for modern Thai food here in Sydney.

Ina Garten’s Seafood Gratin

I’ve been making this delicious seafood gratin for a quite a while. It’s a great recipe to have in your repertoire for when you’re entertaining and want a dish that can be fully prepared in advance but I also cook it regularly just for us. The original recipe calls for lobster as part of the seafood mix […]

Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart

I wish I had taken a picture of this tart once it was sliced to show the just set and slightly runny caramel interior as it would sum up more than any words could just how delicious, rich and decadent this tart is. If you’re not a lover of caramel, especially the kind that just […]

The Easiest & Tastiest Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb

I should have published this post a week ago in time for anyone searching for lamb recipes  for Easter Sunday lunch but if you’re anything like my family then you probably eat lamb pretty regularly and not just at Easter. Our fondness for lamb has me constantly on the look out for new recipes, especially […]

Coffee & Walnut Cake

The term “coffee cake” in America usually refers to any type of cake that would be good served with a cup of coffee, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the cake contains any coffee. The coffee cake in this recipe however, whilst it is fantastic with a cuppa, is the old-fashioned English fair stall type of coffee cake […]
