The Almighty Anzac Biscuit

You really can’t go past a good Anzac biscuit and whether its a thick chewy cookie or one of the thin tough ones, I’m always a fan. They’re a good backup bikkie you can make without having to leave the house for more supplies. This makes them even better I swear. This recipe is for…

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

“Why?” If you’re anything like my husband, that’s what your response to Chocolate Zucchini Bread was. Why put zucchini with chocolate and ruin perfectly good chocolate, you might say. Well, the proof is in the pudding (or bread). You don’t taste the zucchini, only chocolaty goodness, but it makes this bread deliciously moist. Even my…

7 things we learnt about making a Cookbook!

With our final copy being sent off to the editor and our advanced copy getting the final tick of approval we’re reflecting on this crazy process of creating a cookbook! The idea arose nearly 2 years ago when we decided to join forces as A Dietitian and a Photographer and start working on some recipes…

Sweet Potato Falafel Bowls

This is one of those dishes that has been put together with a few leftover ingredients from the fridge and some staple cupboard items. You can mix in whatever you have in the cupboard, but for this recipe I’ve used a tin of chickpeas cooked in a pan with paprika, salt and pepper. I’ve made…

Bright Blueberry and Beetroot Bircher Muesli

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I’m sure you’ve all heard that before, and if you’re like me you’ll agree. I think I’ve mentioned in a previous post about my issues with hanger. It’s a real problem. Suddenly I’ll turn into an angry lion hunting for prey; anything that gets in my…

A cheeky little sneak peak into our book!

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally at the tail end of this book making process! Last weekend we caught up with our friend and fellow photographer Courtney from With love from near and far to do our final photoshoot for the book – our headshots! We’re super happy with all the shots…

Deceivingly Healthy Kids Dessert

Following on from our Kid Friendly Falafel bowls, we obviously had to have dessert! We had a lot of fun coming up with this deceivingly healthy Chocolate Mousse and yummy strawberry smoothie bowl. You’ll need a few bananas on hand for this one, some frozen and some ripe. You can substitute any frozen berries for…

Green Eggs and Salad

Ooops, I mean Green Salad and Eggs. The heroes of this dish come courtesy of Xav from Chooks At The Rooke.  Xav and I went to primary school together, so when Soph and I heard he was doing great things in the egg world, we asked if we could feature his eggs in a few…

Behind the scenes on our final two chapters!

Last weekend we set ourselves the task of completing our Dinner and Breakfast chapters over two days. Mammoth effort by Emma in the kitchen making sure all our dishes were perfect and ready to go! Our Dinner shoot took place on Saturday night with a lovely fake family made up of a family of 6…

Mac n’ Cheese with a lil’ extra thrown in

Mac n’ Cheese is just one of those meals that is delicious every time. Unless you’re my cousin who once put the packet mix in the microwave but forgot to add the water. That mistake ruined his day. This Mac n’ Cheese has a few veggies thrown in but feel free to add your favourites…

Spring Honey Panna Cotta

I love anything that involves a Melbourne rooftop, especially if it’s a bar. So, when Soph and I heard about Melbourne Rooftop Honey we were instantly fans. When we learnt that they are all about bringing bees to our beautiful city and helping to save the honey bee, we loved them. When we tasted their…

Baked Eggs courtesy of Chooks at the Rooke

As you may know, I’m a big lover of start-ups and small businesses. As someone who only lasted 1 term of Business Studies at school and hated it, I never would have imagined I’d be here 10 years later running my own business. I love looking to other small start ups for inspiration and hearing…

Blueberry and Rhubarb Tart

As a kid I always loved when Mum and Dad would have people over for dinner. Mainly because it meant Mum pulled out all the stops and there would be several courses, always ending in a great dessert. This Blueberry and Rhubarb tart is exactly the type she’d serve up, topped with all the ice-cream…

A Very Melbourne Barbeque

What do you do when your Kiwi friend is having a birthday? For the lovely Laura, we decided on a Melbourne-style barbeque by the Yarra, with a little hint of home added (some Monteith’s beer, of course). You know you live in a pretty amazing place when you can gather with your friends by the…

A Firey Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve in my family is pretty low-key and I love it. We sit together on the couch, drink in hand, and watch the carols on TV. Delicious food is a given too. This year I think we’ll spice things up from the usual glass of wine. I’m sure Santa would appreciate it if we…

Lemon Christmas Cookies

Good luck trying to save some of these to leave out for Santa! They’re so delicious you might just want them all to yourself. These Lemon Christmas Cookies are super cute, they’re perfect to give as a thoughtful Christmas gift. Get the kids involved in decorating them and you’ve got a great gift for Grandma…
