A few people have asked me lately if I’ve quit blogging. Which is a fair question. No I haven’t. I just lost my blogging mojo, got out of the routine and have struggled to slot it back into my daily tasks. In fact daily is really just asking too much these days but I would [...]

Fig Tart

En route to Son and Heir’s school, we ride past a fence with an overhanging fig tree. Surely we all know by now how much I love figs. It is possible, that enough time has been factored into our morning ride to raid the half of the tree overhanging public space. As well as gracing [...]

Egg free, sugar free, honey ice cream

Just a quick one from me tonight as I am seriously knackered. This is not the best ice cream I have ever made but it is certainly good. One worth bearing in mind if you ever need to make ice cream for someone allergic to eggs. I love that it uses honey rather than sugar [...]

It’s been a couple of weeks since this dinner party. Somewhat uncharacteristically, I didn’t take a single photo. It took all my energy to get the food to the table. Little did I know, I was being hit with a nasty virus which took complete control of me sometime around midnight that same evening and [...]

It was apt that I started my cook book challenge with Women’s Weekly Dinner Party Cook Book No. 3 as we had dinner guests last night. As it was a mid-week affair, I forwent the full degustation catastrophe and settled for appetisers, sorbet, main meal and dessert. The main meal was the featured cook book [...]

Market day makes me want to stuff as much of that freshly picked vegetable goodness into my gob as humanly possible in one day. As each day of the week passes by, they are that little bit less fresh, that little bit less nutritious. Always good until the end though. This morning, I got caught [...]

I’m fairly sure mine is different every time I make it. It’s the most wonderful meal in a bowl. The dressing for tonight’s version was inspired by Jane Lawson’s Tossed’. The love affair continues. As the Bread Winner waltzed out the door tonight he threw a final comment at me, “W’s coming over tonight”. The [...]
