Mum’s Chicken and Corn Chowder

There are lots of foods that I really didn’t like as a kid but I now love. Coriander is one. Mum’s chicken and corn chowder is another. I remember sitting on the kitchen bench as a kid while Mum was making this. She was on the phone while cooking and I was inpatiently trying to…

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

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…
