Apple & Cinnamon Pancakes

I don’t consider myself to be a particularly envious person, I really don’t. I don’t feel the need to keep up with the Joneses, don’t need every new kitchen gadget that appears on the glossy pages of the brochures in my mailbox, and am pretty much at ease with letting the latest fashions and trends […]

Lazy Weekend Dutch Baby Pancakes

There’s something to be said for a lazy pancake breakfast on the weekend, however it’s usually lazy for everyone except the cook! Which, in my family, means me… While everyone else in the family gets to lounge about, drinking tea and reading in bed, if there’s to be a pancake breakfast it means that I’m […]

Snow-capped breakfast mountains

Now tell me that this picture doesn’t make you hungry. I dare ya. Ethereally light and moist ricotta pancakes resting ever so gently on a pile of fresh, sweet, ruby-red strawberries, dusted in a generous helping of powdered sugar.

After one heckuva long day where nothing seemed to go my way, I had dreamt of making risotto all […]

Cockroaches and cabbage

“Urrrgh” I grunted as I carried the multiple shopping bags back into the house. My mother had been pestering me to try making Okonomiyaki for a few days, and I thought that today, with it’s 39 degree C heat would be the perfect day to stand over a hot stove and fry up one after […]

F is for fritter – HHDH #6

When Jenjen of Milk & Cookies announced the theme for Hey Hey It’s Donna Hay #6 – F is for Fritter, I took it as a sign that yes, I had to take part! I love fritters of many kinds (except the deep fried mars bars as found at a certain fish’n’chip shop in Yarraville […]
