Sausages, Peppers and Potatoes

These days I am experimenting with dinner recipes that that are no-fuss, quick to make meals. But the number one thing in my food world is always TASTE and FLAVOUR, so of course it has to be simple yet yummy. Something that can be put together in about an hour (prepping, cooking, roasting) and that…

Breakfast at PAUL

Last Saturday, we went down to have a family breakfast at PAUL. To be honest, taking the kids out of the apartment and into the car is such a big deal at times that I am often left wondering if it is worth it? This was one such day where we had to make a…

Hello from Riyadh and some Shake Shack!

Hello! Its been a little quiet around here on the blog lately. Thats because we have just moved to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia last week. We are settling down, unpacking boxes, scrubbing the apartment, giving a new home to all our stuff, cherishing our old keepsakes and picking up some new things to add to our…

Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni

One of my all time favourite cuisines is Italian — love to make it, love to eat it. Even my kids eat more pasta than any other type of food. The heartiness that comes with a big bowl of pasta with the right sauce just cannot be topped. Absolute comfort food. Last week, I made…

No Knead Bread

I am the kind of person who loves going to those restaurants that promise a big bread basket. I would happily eat just bread and butter three times a day. Lets just say bread holds a significant place in my life. As much as I love eating bread, I hate kneading doughs. So I was…

Honey Semifreddo with Lemon Crumb and Salted Lemon Caramel

Its that time of the year again with Masterchef Australia airing in its full form; the adrenaline, the emotion, the inspiration and the extreme awesomeness.

Chicken Pot Pie

This pie is the ultimate comfort food with its rich, creamy sauce, veggie and chickeny goodness. Its buttery, flaky pastry is the true winner when it comes to pie crusts. Trust me on this as i have made my fair share of pie doughs in my life. For the filling: 75g butter 1 large onion,…
