Forgive me, dear readers, it’s been 4 months since my last post … wait, no.   There’ll be none of that.  No long-winded apologies.  Or short ones for that matter. I’ve been off doing other stuff, but it’s all good stuff.  Well, mostly.   I had surgery in September thanks to a long-standing hip injury and some time off from...

I have found that the people who truly inspire me are invariably those who dream large and are willing to take risks in life to achieve their dreams.  I suppose this is true for most of us. I first met Emily when she got dumped with me as her personal training client (some years ago now) 😉  I recall that she introduced me to these odd things she called...

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 cards...

You can only stay away from making pastry for so long before the desire overwhelms you like a tidal wave of flaky deliciousness … and you find yourself rolling and cutting out dough to line tart tins once more with delight. Just me?  I doubt it.  But it certainly describes how I’ve been feeling for the past week or so. I promised my father I...

We always recall the truly memorable food moments in our lives with a smile and a longing to revisit the flavours, the textures, the sensory experience of that gastronomic interlude.  Sometimes we can, other times it must remain a sublime memory … perhaps associated with a special occasion, with people we love dearly, or places we have travelled to,...

I was going to make my lebkuchen cookies this year but it looks to be a warm one this Christmas.  Yes, yes, lucky us, hey … with our summery Christmas Except that those of us with European heritage get a little out of sorts with our love of traditional Christmas fare.  I try to find a balance.   Unless we have one of our crazy unexpected cold blasts...

It’s beginning to feel a lot like summer … at least here in Australia.  The days are longer, definitely warmer and sunnier, and summer fruit and vegetables are just bursting out of the ground.   It’s all so colourful and enticing, isn’t it?  Looks like a breakfast bowl from heaven but hey, I prefer to have my fruit at night-time. ...
