Review: Tay Street Beach Cafe

Tay Street Beach Cafe (154 Marine Parade) Literally metres away from where my Mum lives, somewhere I have never really been to because when I’m there we tend to venture further into town. Seemingly popular, I had always wondered whether this place was worth the hype, or if it was popular purely because it was…

Recipe: Mama’s Homemade Muesli

I absolutely ADORE the muesli my mum makes. I have tried so many times to replicate it, because surely, how hard can muesli be! And although I have made loads of delicious muesli in my time, none of them ever seem to match what my mum makes. Finally, I managed to coax the recipe out…

Ubud

Ubud had been described to me as Bali’s food capital, so I was pretty enthused to be going there. We were staying in an Air BnB about a 20 minute walk from town, and without scooters it made getting around sometimes inconvenient. We did our best though; and I managed to eat at some pretty…

Recipe: Feijoa Crepes

On our property at home we have an abundance of feijoa trees. So many, that it gets to the point that unless you are stewing and freezing them on a regular basis, a lot of them end up rotting and mushy under the trees outside. It can be hard to keep on top of them…

Spiced Ginger, Orange and Fig Muesli

It’s so great having a go-to muesli recipe that you can play around with; changing the flavours slightly, and substituting fruit and nuts for others – whatever takes your fancy at the time. I prefer to keep my muesli relatively simple (but packed full of flavour) and then I can add fruit and yoghurt to…

Strawberry Frozen Yoghurt

This refreshing little recipe always makes my heart sing on a warm summers’ day, and the greatest thing about it is that you can make a stack of it in the summer when berries are cheap, and then you can enjoy it right through the winter too! Somewhat surprisingly, the recipe isn’t actually that sweet…

Recipe: Pikelets

Home cooked pikelets are such an easy way to amp up a weekend breakfast, and they can be made with ingredients that are usually found in the cupboard. As children we used to make them allllllllllll the time, and we had even reached the point where we would be adding chocolate chips and/or food colouring…

Recipe: Lemon Curd

Lemon curd is literally my favourite food. I used to think it was chocolate (wise choices, I know) but I’ve recently realised that given the choice of chocolate or lemon curd, I opt for lemon curd every single time. And with the surplus of lemons that have recently occupied the fruit bowl, I’ve had the…

The Grounds

The Grounds of Alexandria (2 Huntley Street, ¬†Alexandria) I was told by numerous people that when I was in Sydney I should take the time out to venture across to The Grounds. I didn’t really know what to expect when I went there, my understanding was that it was a mishmosh of a whole bunch…
