what's for dinner?

Confused? Yep me too

Is anyone else as confused by food as me? I don't mean that a creme brûlée keeps me awake at night or that prawn dumplings tie my stomach up in knots - I mean all the so called "rules" about what we should or shouldn't be eating make me confused. I've recently started...

I am the president, secretary and treasurer of my own Parentally Fatigued Club - the other member and Vice President is my husband and father of my 2 children. This club is for members of the public who feel like the parenting gig is just so looonnnggg. Our youngest...

Renovation ideas and update

A blog post this week which doesn't have a theme as such - an update on our renovation, my ideas for decoration, some images of the last few cooks I've done. In other words a melange, a mixed bag or random miscellany. Council approval for the roofing has been given...

Confessions of a people pleaser

People pleaser - yep that's a label I wear. I want people to like me. There I've said it in writing and on the line, it's out there for the whole world to read. This character trait which I'm sure is a really common one has crept into my business life. I've taken on...

Get into the groove

Boy you've got to prove your love for me - No Madonna, I've got to prove my love for food. I've been working more on my #chomporchuck challenge but also decided to join up on a fellow blogger's cooking challenge - Rediscover your kitchen mojo challenge with Cooker and...

Beginning the #chomporchuck challenge

So last week I began a challenge with myself so that I could justify the copious amount of cookbooks taking up real estate in my home. The #chomporchuck challenge is about making 2 or 3 recipes from each cookbook and if they don't work or I don't like them, they get...
