The weekday standard breakfast at the Kitchen Playground is a simple little concoction. I throw everything together in the evening, pop it in the fridge overnight and then just dish it out in the morning. If I’m being fancy schmancy, I put the fresh fruit on in the morning so it looks prettier and I [...]
Yes. You read that title correctly. Breakfast meets creme brulee. Now that is a way to start the day! Not that it is an everyday breakfast but for a holiday morning or early morning entertaining, this is sure to impress. We have Jaden at Steamy Kitchen to thank for this naughty little taste of morning [...]
February is the new December. Busy, busy, busy. Not to mention often too hot to cook. This little meal is not only versatile in the time of day that it suits but it’s delicious and can be made in 10 minutes from start to finish. What more could you possibly want? Poached salmon, egg and [...]

In my noodlings ’round the net yesterday, I found a picture. I think it was on flickr. It was a breakfast from The Commoner, which I believe is a Melbourne cafe. It tickled my fancy so I thought I’d replicate it for breakfast this morning. Panfried Gingerbread with Caramelised Banana and Honeyed Yoghurt. I made [...]
Conjunctivitis has confined us to quarters. I lost my tiny little mind last night and threatened the Ankle Biters with mutilation politely asked the Ankle Biters to clean up their mess. It’s too wet to garden. All in all we’re having a slow and lazy Sunday morning. Which is nice. We’ve been on a pancake [...]
