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...

Rockmelon and prosciutto salad Dine in

Rockmelon and prosciutto is a classic combination but this salad was not something that Stu was particularly excited about trying. My first experience with rockmelon and prosciutto was in France when it was served by my host mother and it seemed very exotic to a country girl from Australia! A sliver of rockmelon with the skin, placed on a plate with thin slice of prosciutto. That’s it. I ate the rockmelon with a knife and fork, piercing the fruit and slowly slicing along the skin to release a piece of tender and sweet rockmelon which contrasts beautifully with the salty prosciutto....

Simple salmon parcels Dine in

We were having friends over for dinner on a school night and I had grand plans of making roast chicken but… traffic was bad (it takes the longest time to travel the shortest distance in Sydney), the sapphire fell out of my engagement ring and time was marching on so by the time I arrived home I had no interest in making anything complicated! I was first introduced to cooking en papillote (meaning in parchment) when I was living in France. It is basically dinner in a bag – all your ingredients are wrapped in paper/foil and baked. It’s a...

Super quick breakfast burrito Dine in

I really don’t like waste so with half a can of refried beans left in the fridge I needed to come up with a way to use it up. I’m a bit embarrassed to share this recipe actually because it is not the sexiest meal you’re ever going to come across, but it’s good. Quick enough for a work morning too, you could probably have it cooked by the time you have boiled the kettle and made a cup of tea. It is not complicated so I don’t really think you need a recipe, but I’ll share the process with you just in...

Real deal crumpets Dine in

Once you have made these crumpets you are never, ever, going to be satisfied by the rubbery numbers from the supermarket. These crumpets are tender and crisp and absolutely amazing with jam (and cream, why not?) or served as a savoury dish with poached/scrambled eggs and bacon/smoked salmon. There is a bit of waiting involved while the dough rises and the crumpets cook, but on a lazy morning set a timer and sit down and read a book… or boogie to rage as I often do on a Saturday. Ingredients 1 cup warm milk 2 1/2 tsp caster sugar 1 1/2...
