As we head into the cooler months, this Roasted Vegetable Salad is an easy and tasty dish to throw together. What’s more, it is beautifully vibrant: lovely to take to a family get together. Alternatively, it could be a substitute side to pair with your favourite cut of meat for a weeknight meal. This is […]
This Tomato and Bacon Risotto is our family fave and it is especially convenient when the garden is overflowing with tomatoes. It works best with cherry tomatoes but you can substitute them with other varieties if they are on hand. Likewise you can use onions if leeks are unavailable. Another reason I love this risotto […]
The creamy garlic potato dish of everyone’s dreams! Potato gratin is comfort food at its finest – and when you make it with one-of-a-kind organic potatoes, you know it’s going to be absolutely top notch. Organic potatoes are usually waxy and don’t sink into smooth softness as easily as floury potatoes do, but a gratin […]

Absolutely perfect with the seasonal treat that is asparagus, but also notoriously difficult to make at home. The sauce can split, […]

This Green Bean Risotto is a wonderfully easy meal with the delicious hint of pesto. It is perfect for a meat-free Spring dinner with a side of fresh salad but could also be incorporated with a favourite cut of meat. The method below is for traditional cooking but it doesn’t take long to get it […]
Asparagus is divine no matter how you prepare it – and it’s often the simplest recipes that allow this seasonal treat to really shine. Asparagus season is so brief, but when you get tired of steaming with butter and salt (if that’s even possible!), roasting or grilling this wondrous veg is a welcome change. Add […]
Are you looking to do something a little different with your vegetables? Do you want to entice your children to think more lovingly about cauliflower and broccoli? If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions, then this Cheesy Broccoli and Cauliflower recipe is for you. If you have a Thermomix and can whip up […]
Our kids absolutely love Brussels Sprouts, so much so that they request them to be cooked and packed in their school lunches. So today we thought we would have a play around and add some extra flavour to them by adding some bacon and garlic from a recipe I found in Pete Evans Family Food cookbook.
We hope you enjoy the as much as we did.
