Moving and globe artichokes with crushed peas Dine in

It’s been a little while between posts because we have been moving house.  Project “Clean Out The Fridge, Freezer and Pantry” was initiated so we had less stuff to move which resulted in not very exciting cooking for a few weeks while we cleaned things out. The freezer was particularly full and one night when Stu was on his haunches foraging for dinner I heard exclamations and bags landing on the floor as he discovered my stash of parmesan rinds, herbs, spices, random pieces of bread, bread crumbs as well as quinces, mangoes and bananas. Rather than waste food I generally stick it in...

Ricotta and kale gnocchi with roasted tomato sauce Dine in

I know I have made a winning vegetarian dish when Sir Stuart (“It’s not a meal without meat”) helps himself to seconds. And thirds. This is one of those recipes, delicious, easy to prepare, one tray bake, it certainly ticks a lot of boxes! The leftovers also freeze and reheat well, so make enough for leftovers for another lunch or dinner. I have made potato gnocchi before – it is time consuming and not always successful (I have inadvertently made potato soup a couple of times when the gnocchi disintegrated in the cooking water).  This was my first time with ricotta...

Waterman’s Lobster Co Dine in

Lobster. From The Atlantic Ocean. On a roll. In Potts Point. This definitely doesn’t align with my eat local, shop local food philosophy but I put my ethics aside and ventured to Waterman’s Lobster Co with Mum for a special lunch. Waterman’s Lobster Co is a fancy restaurant located in a busy pedestrian alley in Potts Point (great for people watching!). We booked for lunch on a Saturday but didn’t need to as the restaurant wasn’t that busy when we visited. Mum and I were there on a mission, so the decision was simple. We ordered one Connecticut style roll (with...

Berry crumble Dine in

I love dessert with fruit for many reasons and this recipe is particularly good. Decadent and delicious but on the edge of healthy so I don’t feel at all guilty for having seconds! It is easy to prepare ahead if you are having guests over for dinner – make the crumble topping and store in the freezer and have the berries sitting on the bench oozing and jamming together while you wine and dine your guests. Of course you can use the crumble topping for other fruit combinations as long as you use the same proportions (I’m pretty sure in...

Home made muesli Dine in

This is the only recipe you will ever need for muesli/granola/breakfast deliciousness. It is the perfect mix of salty and sweet with the nourishing combination of rolled oats, nuts and seeds that you can comfortably tweak based on what you have on hand in your pantry. I make my muesli without dried fruit because I find that it stores better and stays crunchier for longer and you can always add it when serving.  The olive oil and salt may seem a bit weird but the savoury notes of this muesli are what make it special. Feel free to cut down...
