apple & rhubarb crumble

I was perusing the aisles of the store last week and saw a sachet of fresh prepared rhubarb. I love the stuff when I eat out but have never bothered to cook it up myself so grabbed it to see if I could make anything…

homemade baked beans

I don’t eat a lot of beans but find that a hangover can be addressed in a healthy but satisfying way with a breakfast of baked beans! As much as I love Heinz tins I decided to experiment with homemade ones while I was in-between…

sheperds pie

            When I left Boston just after the record-making arctic winter this year to come home to a Sydney winter I wasn’t overly happy… I do love my sunshine! That said, there have been many afternoons of lovely winter…

breakfast strata

Labor Day brunch and a true labor of love worth every minute. Super-seasoned scrambled tofu, cashew crema, spinach, mushrooms, red peppers was simply a magical combination.

spinach vegetable pilaf

Yum! I just made a delicious omnivore-approved, vegan, gluten-free spinach and vegetable pilaf for dinner – took a little longer than expected but totally worth the wait, and you can easily put it on to cook and leave it mostly unattended. To be honest,…
