I’ve been thinking of getting away for a week or so.  A chance for mum and I to have some quiet time.   Getaways make me think immediately of Port Douglas and my beloved Four Mile Beach, in far north Queensland.   It was my father’s favourite spot as well and so a perfect place for us to go.  Unfortunately, it’s just not on the...

I am running a seven-day diet challenge for myself.  It’s not that much of a challenge, to be honest, but the idea is to set me up so I can enjoy Christmas Day with the family and indulge in a bit of what is really not good for me, without fearing spending Boxing Day feeling below par.

If I had my way, choux pastry would be THE NEXT BIG THING.  Actually, it would be a PERMANENT next big thing! I ♥ choux. More than any other pastry.  It is fun to make, delicious to eat and provides one with endless possibilities for all manner of stunning desserts and a whole universe of flavours to play with.  It’s a perfect canvas.  Yes, it...
