IMG_2371

Before I get started, I just have to say thank you to everyone. It has been a tough few weeks since the loss of my darling Mr Woofy and I must admit that there are times that the grief became almost too much for me to bear. But so many of you have reached out […]

IMG_3239

Before we get into today’s post, my recipe for chicken, tofu & mushroom dumplings is up in an international recipe battle for Mushroom Masters on the Tastespotting blog!

Risotto. It’s one of those dishes that seems so simple and easy yet is very, very easy to screw up. Or so it seems. Everyone has their own way of doing it – some make their risotto in the oven much like a casserole. Others use pots. Me? I like making my risottos in a […]

When I look back, it’s been a pretty interesting 5 years. […]

However, if there’s one rule in life which is generally a good one to bear in mind, it’s that looks can be very, very deceiving. There is nothing extravagant or unique about this […]

Rockin’ out with my wok out!

I have a confession to make. I’m a gadget junkie. I love pretty shiny new things, especially when I think they’re a worthwhile purchase (and even when they’re not…I’m STILL regretting the purchase of my blue suede stiletto boots). However, buying anything new for our kitchen these days usually descends into a battle of epic […]

Stupidly simple stir-fry

Let us consider the humble stir-fry. The concept is simple enough – you stir as you fry. Not quite brain surgery. However, during my 27 years on this planet, I’ve come across quite a few people who seem to find this equation a little perplexing… I’ve had more than a few friends partake in my […]
