    Gareth had a housemate who he always went mountain biking with (hi Jeff!). His housemate, after completing his study, moved back to his home town (a few hours drive away). So being the good friend that he is, Gareth would go and visit. Of course they inevitably end up mountain biking with a group...

    served-peach-salad - my kitchen crowd

    You know you have a winning recipe when you would rather eat more salad then homemade icecream with buckwheat wafer baskets . Even more exciting, is that my sister’s housemate (Hi Clare!) just gave us a whole heap of home grown necterines and plums (Thanks HEAPS Clare!) from her parents house (Thanks parents!). Those...

    cooked served

    I must confess that I’ve been obsessing about lasagne since Easter. That’s right – for months! Now some of you may know me well and not be particularly surprised by that. I tend to get quite taken by an idea and and obsess about it until I get it out of my system, but...

    I’m still on a high from my visit to the farmers markets the other week. In fact, we’ve been every week since. The produce is so fresh and delicious! In only three weeks, some of my favourite stall holders are even recognising me now. It’s got such a great sense of community. They also...

    cooked pizza

    I remember when I was younger, going to visit our cousins. It was awesome. And aside from the talking, laughter and games, I remember desperately wanting to play a computer game they owned that I was quite obsessed with. Now, in hindsight it probably wasn’t such a bad game to be obsessed by, as...

    A few months ago we had a potluck curry lunch. We were going to a friend’s house, and as we arrived there was this delicious aroma of curry wafting throughout the house. Yum. I love curry. It’s one of my favourite foods. I mean I may not be able to rival my Dad when...

    taco close up

    Tacos. The word creates memories of delicious-ness. Of a crunchy shell, hot spicy beans, ooey-gooey melted cheese, a fresh finish with lettuce… all topped with one of my favourite foods—sour cream. Yum! Of course, I also have memories of cutting my mouth up with the taco shell trying to eat it quickly, desperate not...
