Creamy pasta with yoghurt, peas and chilli

I returned home after being away for a week and Stu confidently informed me there wasn’t any food in the house. It was Sunday night and I didn’t feel like cooking anyway so we got takeaway. Monday night I arrived home from work to check out this “no food situation” and was astounded at the bounty in the fridge – a handful of mushrooms, half a bag of almost-past-it spinach, cream, bacon, eggs, parmesan… more than enough to make a delicious carbonara-ish dinner. I hate supermarkets, so after dinner I did my grocery shop online for delivery on Tuesday. However,...

Chicken and chorizo burgers

Chicken and chorizo burgers

I have been a bit of a tardy poster of late – work has been consuming most of the additional headspace I would ordinarily give to writing and cooking. Consequently, our meals have been created by my own “Ready, Steady, Cook” in the kitchen when I put┬átogether a meal from what I can gather from the fridge and freezer. Free style cooking without a recipe, a bit of creativity and maximum flavour. This is one of those dinners and it┬áturned out surprisingly well! The burger patties were nice and moist and as any good week night recipe should, it came...

Tropical getaway in Cairns

The Anzac day long weekend was approaching and Stu and I decided on a whim to head to Cairns for 4 days. We didn’t need much convincing really – it has been months since our last scuba dive and the warm tropical waters of Cairns seemed an ideal way to escape the suburban speed of Sydney. We certainly didn’t need much – a couple of changes of clothes, one “good” pair of shoes (sandals) and a pair of thongs each, along with our massive dive bag and we were heading to the airport. It was my first visit to Cairns and it had...

Tartly sweet lemon meringue pie

I have made this pie twice now and it turned out perfectly both times. Actually, I just realised that the pie is so easy to make I was able to make it on a Friday night after work, with a g&t in hand in preparation for having people over for a Saturday lunch. That’s how good this recipe from Donna Hay is! The lemon curd tastes of lemon, which is how it should be. The cloud of Italian meringue on top balances out the lemon flavours and the butter crust is the perfect contrast. I enjoy making pastry and getting...

Slow cooked Mexican pulled pork with black beans

Slow cooked Mexican pulled pork with black beans

My slow cooker has been gathering dust for a while now, I go through phases of using it or not and one day last week I decided it was time to pull it out of the cupboard once again. I like the idea of putting all the ingredients in a pot and leaving them to cook all day so I can come home to a cooked meal but my challenge is always getting the liquid ratio right. More often than not I end up with a thin stew soup because the slow cooker is so good at keeping all the...
