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 [...]
How on earth did not one but two farmers have asparagus at the farmer’s market at this time of year? Not that I’m complaining. We had heaven for breakfast this morning. Yes, I have a weird fetish for my toast being beside the other ingredients. Deal with it.
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 [...]
It’s possible that I often mention scrambled eggs. Or maybe not. What is certain is that I eat them a lot. They’re my staple weekend breakfast and I often make myself a serving for lunch too. Perfect after a cold morning in the pool. In fact, Lil Miss and I had scrambled eggs with feta [...]
Porridge is quite the popular topic at the moment. Wonderful warming stuff that it is. Before I give you my method, I must emphasise that they key for me is thick cut oats. The thicker the better. Instant oats are an abomination. Carmen’s do a good conventional oat and Kialla Pure Foods do a great [...]
Porridge is our weekday staple, particularly in the cooler months. We never eat porridge on the weekends though. Never. I think there may even be an unwritten rule against it. Or maybe even written. Maybe I just wrote it. Weekend breakfasts hover between eggs, toast, pancakes, benedict if I’m feeling fancy. I felt like breaking [...]
Obviously, one of the best breakfasts a mother of young Ankle Biters can have is one eaten in the absence of Ankle Biters. So on Sunday, in celebration of my lovely SIL Karen’s birthday, 8 such mothers descended on Apte for a leisurely breakfast. Not the first time I have breakfasted there and I have [...]
Breakfast can be such a boring rut. Now the weather has turned colder I seem to have left muesli behind and I need something to break the weekday porridge monotony. So I was a very happy puppy when I was sorting through old cook books and found this little number. I used frozen berries, defrosted [...]
