Zucchini, Almond & Coconut Bread

I recently came into a large quantity of zucchini, thanks to an over-enthusiastic Woolworths home delivery packer who gave me two whole kilograms of them, rather than the two single ones I’d ordered. I used up a bunch of them in my Summer Pad Thai, then […]

Five things for March

Homecoming | A scripted psychological-thriller podcast starring Catherine Keener, Oscar Isaac, David Cross, and David Schwimmer? Heck yes!

After a long drive from Nitmiluk Gorge, we arrived in Darwin for the last 24 hours of our Northern Territory adventure. Kicking things off with some incredibly good sushi, we then hit the Museum and Art Gallery, a natural history buff’s dream that also boasts some fantastic Australian artwork, and a […]

I’m prone to kitchen laziness during summer, especially on those days where it’s blazingly hot outside, the pedestal fan just isn’t cutting the mustard in my heinously non-air conditioned flat, and the very thought of consuming a hot meal makes me break out in yet another layer of […]

Darwin to Jabiru

With the festive season done and dusted and work revving up again, there was nothing for it but to… go on a holiday. Paul and I spent a week in mid-January travelling around the Northern Territory, in a loop from Darwin to Kakadu National Park, south to […]

Milk Beach

My favourite time of year in Sydney is that lazy week between Christmas and the New Year, when most offices have shut down and everyone is in full leisure-mode. It not only allows for some serious battery-recharging, but also means getting out and about and […]

Beautiful Bright

The next stop on our December Victorian adventure was Bright, a beautiful town (there’s even a sign telling you so) in the Ovens Valley in Victoria’s north-eastern alpine region. It’s quite the food and wine destination, with vineyards, hop fields, orchards, and nut farms dotted throughout the […]
