Mushroom and Blueberry Burgers

If you’ve been following us and reading our blog posts, you’re probably aware of my love for blueberries. They’re basically perfection in a cute little purple ball. I have a blueberry plant at home which is about four years old. For the first three years, I would harvest a measly five or so blueberries a…

Blueberry and Fromage Frais Toast

Kickstarting our month of Blueberry appreciation I’m sharing with you our Blueberry and Fromage Frais Toast. A very simple breakfast dish to create, but highly instagrammable. It’s a win win really! All the products mentioned in our posts over the next few weeks will all be available at the Gellibrand River Blues and Blueberry Festival…

Otway Blueberries

In anticipation of the annual Gellibrand River Blues and Blueberry Festival taking place over the weekend of the 24th and 25th February, Emma (who is slightly obsessed with blueberries) is creating a few different recipes highlighting this wonderful fruit and some of the great local produce this region has to offer. To kick start our…

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy – 3 Ingredient Fruit Dip

This recipe has made an appearance at many social gatherings throughout my life and I’m usually the one that requests it to be there. Obviously I never cared how it was made but just cared about it accompanying any fruit platter. It was only until I was a bit older when Mum would get me…

Beachside Adventures

As the Summer school holidays are slowly drawing to an end, I’m left wondering where January has disappeared to! Working as a school and kindergarten photographer, I’m lucky enough to get time off over the school holidays. My freelance work keeps me pretty busy, but I still manage to find the time to enjoy a few…

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…

Cheers to 2018!

With Christmas celebrations finished for another year, I’ve been sleeping and reading my way through that weird little period between Christmas and New Years. The Christmas leftovers are dwindling, but somehow a family of 5 are still scraping together enough ham for sandwiches every day. With New Years Eve not too far away at all,…

Pretty as a Picture Christmas Presents

Giving gifts at Christmas is one of my favourite pastimes. I tend to get a little addicted to internet browsing in the lead up to Christmas, searching for the perfect gifts. Generally it pays off and I get a rush watching my family open their well-thought-out presents. I guess it’s a family thing, because thoughtful…

Throw another shrimp on the barbie!

A few years ago I lived in London and my friends over there were just baffled that Australians celebrated Christmas while it was hot. The idea of looking at Christmas lights while it was Summer was something they just couldn’t come to terms with. They also came to the conclusion that if it wasn’t snowing…

Aunty J’s Famous Christmas Truffles

We’re well and truly getting in the Christmas spirit over here at A Dietitian and a Photographer. The carols have been playing at my house for a few weeks now and I’m not even sorry about it. We’ve got lots of goodies to share with you over the month of December and we’re starting with…

My forever food – Noodles!

If I had to pick my all time favourite food, the one I’d choose if I was to live out the rest of my days on a deserted island, it would have to be noodles. When it comes to take away I’m always in the mood for Thai or Vietnamese noodles. Without fail. They’re great…

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…
