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…

Kid Friendly Falafel Bowls

We’d been looking to feature a few more kids recipes on the blog when we started chatting to Jade at Little Woods about a collaboration. It was originally going to be something completely different, but Jade had this new product she was about to release which we couldn’t really go past! These Star Grazer Divided Plates…

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…

The crowd pleasing dip!

September is always an exciting time with footy and netball winding up for the year with plenty of celebrations, regardless if your team makes it to the end or not. While Emma will nervously be watching her Magpies take the field this weekend in the AFL Grand Final, my team is out of the running…

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…

Give it a bloody pizzlin’ this Fathers Day

This meatloaf recipe is one of my regular requests when I go home. Usually Mum is the cook, but this is one recipe that Dad always makes. I guess it’s because this is his Mum’s recipe. There’s always disagreement about how it should be done; Dad and I like it with chunky bits of onion,…

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…
