Happy Easter 🐰🐣

What a long weekend it has been! It was filled with hikes, chocolate, spiders and laughs.  Here’s my summary of Easter 2017: Good Friday The sun was back, yay! In celebration Tash, Ben and I did a 10km coastal walk from Spit Bridge to Manly. The views were absolutely amazing and it made the walk…

Winter Warmer

As summer ended in Sydney, it was as if the weather went straight downhill.  The amount of rain we’ve had and the severe temperature drop was not fun at all. One thing to make myself better was to cook a nice cosy dish! Once again, I’ll state that I’m poor so the ingredients used are…

The Perks of the Job

Working in a restaurant is a great opportunity to try lots of food and open yourself up to new flavours. As for my place of work, I get to try Hawaiian/Asian/Australian dishes.  Lunch came around and I decided to create a dish that encompassed everything I have learned so far.

Much like Bonfire Night…

Homemade Gnocchi 🍝

Funny how things work out; a failed staff night out (everyone was busy) turned into cooking lessons!  My lovely friend from work took pity on me a few days ago as I’d gotten all ready for a night out for everyone to cancel. So she picked me up and we, along with her husband, went…

Rotten Garlic Anyone?

I’ve been in Oz for 6 months now and I still get excited when it’s time to go food shopping. The aisles filled with different brands than I’m used to; the fresh seafood available in store and even just the way the veggies are laid out keeps me so interested. Whenever I go on holiday…
