Satay chicken and vegetable stirfry Dine in

We were counting down the days to our trip to Vanuatu so I was in operation Fridge Clean Out mode and eating what we had so nothing went to waste. While riding home from work I was trying to figure out what we could have for dinner as the options were dwindling… but then I remembered I had a trusty can of Ayam satay sauce in the cupboard! Another reason for always having one in your pantry – instant flavour. I had a pile of vegetables in the fridge and a chicken breast in the freezer, along with a packet of...

Buttery soft roast lamb shoulder Dine in

My absolute favourite way to roast meat at the moment is slow roasted lamb shoulder. It’s so easy to do and absolutely yum served with a variety of different sides. We enjoyed this particular lamb with coleslaw and flat bread, and then left overs with tabbouleh and tzatziki later in the week. If you are coming to our house for a meal, chances are I’ll serve you lamb because it can just cook away in the oven while I socialise and enjoy your company! Make sure you enjoy the caramelised roasted garlic from the pan as well… delicious! Ingredients 1/4 cup...

BBQ cajun chicken Dine in

The weather is finally warming in Sydney (most days anyway..!) so it’s finally time to get back into BBQ dinners. We live in a townhouse beside a heritage listed house which has been turned into 4 flats. I often feel sorry for my neighbours when I’m outside cooking on the BBQ because I’m quite sure all the smells are headed straight for their living rooms. I don’t think everyone would appreciate roasted eggplant (for baba ghanoush) or sealing BBQ pork ribs for a long slow cook in the oven at 8am in the morning  as I do (yes, that’s right)...

Chermoula chicken with apricots Dine in

Terrible photo, but a delicious casserole made with the Chermoula spice blend I purchased from Gewurzhaus Herb & Spice Merchants a little while ago. They are an Australian company which freshly blends small batches of spices each week to ensure maximum quality and flavour, and they ship around the country. Bonus! Chermoula is a bit of a blanket term for a spicy marinade/spice rub originating from northern Africa. Like most recipes everyone has their own variation and you can definitely make your own, but sometimes it’s just easier to buy a delicious one for an hassle free and yum dinner. Chicken...

Flattened tandoori roasted chicken Dine in

If you haven’t done a “flat-roast” chicken yet, now is your time! The chicken cooks more quickly compared to the traditional method and the meat still stays moist, so it’s perfect for a school night dinner. This recipe for tandoori roasted chicken is super simple to pull together and if you have time, prepare the chicken the day before so it can marinate for extra flavour. Kitchen scissors are best to cut out the backbone of the chicken, you can google for a video or follow my pretty basic instructions. Put the whole chicken breast down on a chopping board...
