Simple roast fennel pasta Dine in

This is one of my favourite recipes to make when I’m feeling lazy or I’m cooking for one. Apart from chopping a few bits, the oven does all the hard work for you! Once roasted, the strong aniseed flavour mellows and caramelises into a sweet, soft partner to the pasta, jazzed up with a bit of chilli, garlic and lemon. I had a handful of lonely spinach leaves which I added this time around, use this recipe as a base to add or remove bits as your fridge allows. Let me know where this recipe takes you. Ingredients 1 large...

Handful Prawn Pasta Dine in

Cooking in self catering accomodation is a bit of an art. You need to make do with a (usually) ill equipped kitchen with blunt knives, not enough saucepans and a non existent pantry so you need to make maximum flavour with minimum ingredients. I called this Handful Prawn Pasta because that was how I measured everything out, using delicious prawns from Canarvon WA (well up the coast from Perth, but still fresh and so sweet), local colourful tomatoes, breadcrumbs made from my woodfired loaf of bread, along with parsley, garlic and lemon. Simple and delicious. Pangrattato is also known as poor...

6 ingredient lemon pasta Dine in

Yes… I present to you a pile of plain looking pasta sitting in a fancy bowl. Doesn’t look like much! But! Bear with me… this is a super simple and super delicious bowl of pasta and I’m sure you would already have most of the ingredients in your fridge. Pasta, lemon, cream, salt, pepper, parmesan. That’s it! The original recipe says yield 6 servings but I’m not sure what size human they are, but it definitely isn’t Stu and I. We probably shouldn’t have eaten the lot, but we did. And loved it. You will too! Ingredients 250g pasta (you choose, I use...

Spinach and ricotta cannelloni Dine in

I was googling for an easy spinach and ricotta recipe and for some reason was pretty difficult… all the recipes I came across had too many ingredients or too many steps for a school night so I made this up instead. It turned out really well! You can’t go wrong with an all in one baked dinner which can go straight from oven to table. I made a point of using whole ingredients, by that I mean not using 600g of ricotta when you can buy 250g or 500g pre packaged in the supermarket (also, zest or juice from half...

Guilt free lemon and poppy seed cake Dine in

I love baking with butter… and sugar… and white flour. Pretty controversial! I’m sure the gluten/dairy/egg/sugar free concoctions taste OK and I get that some people have genuine allergies which need to be seriously considered. However, for the same reason I don’t call spiralized zucchini “pasta” (it’s grated zucchini) or cauliflower rice “rice” (it’s blitzed cauliflower) I don’t do baking without the good “bad” stuff. Food wasn’t always demonised and labelled and people weren’t always made to feel guilty for eating what they enjoy. When my parents were growing up you ate what you were given and what you were given was...
