Dinner in Botany Bay 

Instead of my usual restaurant hunting, I was invited over for a home cooked meal by Rita (my lovely Brazilian friend).  Her mum and her mum’s friend had come to Sydney for a visit, and had been feeding Rita and her husband delicious home cooked food since their arrival. I heard stories about all the…

Battle of the Cheese Breads

Easter had come and gone, so it was time to get back to work.  Myself and two other co workers went in bright and early to start prepping for a busy week.  Rita, my lovely Brazilian friend, produced a treat halfway through our shift. They are called Pão de Queijo which is literally cheese bread…

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…

You Can Never Have Enough Brunch!

The Easter holidays had finally come! Tash and I were stuck for ideas on what to do as the weather was still crap. So brunch it was! This time we ventured into Bondi Junction and ate at a place called Tuckshop.  Here’s what we ordered: Myself – brisket hash with quinoa and chickpeas, lime Mayo…

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 Best Brunch in Town!

My manager came into work one day and was unbelievably enthusiastic about the brunch she just had, so I of course had to check it out!  I didn’t want to go by myself so dragged Tash and Ben along.  We ventured just over an hour by bus to a place called Forest Lodge, where a…

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. Here’s my recipe:  100g thinly…

The Pros and Cons of Travelling; as told by a Twenty Something

Travelling has always been in my blood; my parents met in Saudia Arabia, I always went on exotic holidays as a kid and my dreams always consisted of new destinations.  My first ‘real’ experience of travelling was when I was nineteen and I decided to travel to the USA to become a camp counsellor for…

Saturday in Sydney

Normally I’m working in the restaurant during the weekends but as the weather hasn’t been so kind to us recently, I managed to get a Saturday off!  Usually I rise around 1pm and after chilling in bed, grabbing something to eat and eventually showering – I’m ready to conquer the day at around 4pm. However,…

Fusion Foods

What do Mexican and Asian cuisines have in common? They both shared a bowl to become my lunch the other day.  I was hungry and I hadn’t done a food shop so I looked through my fridge and cupboards and decided to merge two cuisines!  Here’s my recipe: 1 tbsp homemade guacamole (red onion, tomato,…

How do you like your eggs in the morning?

Over the past few weeks I feel as if I’ve been living as a housewife and my friend Tash is my companion in all this. You see, we’re now working weird hours so they only time for a catch up is lunchtime during the middle of the week. We now rub shoulders with the very…

Ladies Who Lunch 💁🏽

Last week I was treated to three outings with Tash and, of course food had to be involved!  The first trip of the week was shopping and lunch in Bondi Junction. We decided to eat first so we had enough energy to do the exhausting task of browsing through the stores. We went for a…
