    Trail Mix Oatmeal

    This is my favorite way to eat oatmeal at the moment. I had it again for breakfast this morning, and I thought that it’s about time I shared it here! What I love about eating oatmeal this way is the variety in every spoonful – will I bite into crispy, crunchy almonds? Chewy cranberries or […]

    Carrot & Cilantro Salad

    I have a great mother-in-law. A truly wonderful mother-in-law. Do you know why? Well apart from being a truly awesome person, she bought me a subscription to Cuisine Magazine last Christmas!

    Filipino Chicken Curry

    I love recipes that are simple yet tasty. I mean seriously, why cook anything else? 🙂 Well this recipe is both those things, and we love it! We love experimenting with different cuisines, and one day I stumbled across a recipe for a Filipino-style chicken curry. It is basically chicken simmered in coconut milk with […]

    Vietnamese Beef Noodle Salad

    This is a simple take on a Vietnamese beef noodle salad. I make this quite often because it’s  easy to make and doesn’t take much time, and we love the flavors! I’ve simplified it by using ground beef instead of steak, which means I don’t need to worry about marinating the meat. I’m also using […]

  • That's Life!
  • Back from New Zealand!

    I have spent the last week or so, since we got back from New Zealand, getting over my jet lag and just generally catching up on everything. Lots of unpacking, many loads of laundry, and trips to the various supermarkets, farmers markets and farm stores that I shop at to stock up on food. Then, […]

  • Lamb Curry

    I’m feeling bad that my last post was nearly a month ago….bad, very on bad on my part 🙁 March has been a busy month for us. We have been working a lot in our garden and have been making plans for some much-needed interior renovations. Also, this Friday we are flying to New Zealand […]

  • Mashed Veggies

    I could have given this a fancier, more appealing name, such as Root Vegetable Mash, or Rutabaga, Carrot and Parsnip Puree. But mashed veggies was what my mum called them, and mashed veggies was one of my favorite comfort foods as a kid (and still is might add). So mashed veggies it is! There’s not […]

  • Gluten Free
  • Greens Soup

    Eating your greens is a very healthy thing to do, right? But me personally, I’ve never much been into greens 🙁 The urge for a green salad almost never hits me, and cooked greens can leave a strange “chalky” feeling in my mouth, which makes eating cooked greens unpleasant for me. I decided to research […]
