Life has recently dumped a few bagfuls of lemons on my lap. Well, two of my aunts gave me bags of lemons from their trees, which is close enough, right? Big, juicy, fragrant lemons. I’m using them in literally everything at the moment, getting the best of them while they are still fresh. So be prepared for a fair swag of lemony recipes on this site,...

The weather has started to turn lately and it is now very obviously Autumn here.  We have even reverted back to non-daylight-savings time.  It gets darker earlier and the nights are cooler (mostly).  Today it started to rain.  A grey, dismal afternoon, with the promise of a week of more rain to come. Good weather for baking, my mother used to say. ...

I have been flat chat making chocolates and sorting out packaging for protein bars and a bazillion other things over the past two weeks.  But so much so that I have slacked off a little bit in my training.  While it is a truly exciting time (she says pushing her fear of failure aside … ), my training is important to me.  I’m a fidgeter.  I...

There are some things that chocolate cannot fix. I don’t mean this flippantly at all.  What I mean is that some things cannot be made better by anything.  Not chocolate, not time, not anything. I’ve not posted a recipe on the blog in well over a month now and for this I am sorry. I lost my beautiful father a few weeks ago after a sudden and...

Familiarity doesn’t always breed contempt.  Sometimes it begets comfort.  It can be very reassuring and soothing.  It can be joyful, playful, and nostalgic.   The familiar can be amazing. I thrive on change and fearlessly love experimenting with the new, in work and life, and definitely with food.  But I also love need my comfort foods.   It...

July is a month that always throws my body clock right out of whack.  It’s not the cold weather and short days  (it’s winter here, oh joy), although I am not a fan of the cold.  It’s a sporting issue, dear readers.   You see, while most of Australia is focussed on our local Australian Football League and Rugby League competitions,...

Life is about compromise.  You really cannot please all people all the time.   I have been doing a lot of compromising of late.  It can wear you down.  Sap your energy.  Leave you feeling that you have neglected the things that are important priorities in your own world.
