It’s that time again! Pickle Club has come around so quickly. Just in time too because our chutney, pickle and jam supplies were running low! If you’re not familiar with Pickle Club you can read up on it in one of my older posts here. Pickle Club has created quite a stir over the last couple of months. After my last post I received quite a few emails asking how it all works and if I know of any other Pickle Clubs out there (no idea sorry)… even Frankie magazine wanted

This week on the Adeline & Lumiere Blog we’re (pre) celebrating St Patricks Day! With that in mind, I thought I’d use a recipe that was given to me by my Aunty when I visited Ireland a few years ago. I had the best time in the Emerald Isle and with Fitzgerald as my surname, I felt right at home! It was a few years ago, it still remains one of the best trips I’ve been on. Trekking through the Killarny National Park, walking up Mt Brandon (2nd highest mountain

Well how was everybodys’ weekend? I don’t know about you but mine was great! First of all I had two pieces of good news on Friday afternoon… 1. I found out I got a new job (wooohoooo!) It was a three month process from the first interview, but it was worth the wait. Good things really do come to those who… well, you know ; ) 2. The second bit of good news was that I won a competition from The Design Files blog! The new book by ‘The Little

Oh my golly goodness, boy has it been hot in Melbourne. I love the heat however it’s completely put me off baking at the moment. Whilst we’re sweltering in this heat I thought it was the perfect time to make something icy and refreshing. I made this up when I was in a little bit of a rush last week. It’s my own recipe and I have to say it’s a winner. I had four happy little ripe nectarines in the fruit bowl and half a juicy watermelon in the

On our way home from London (over a year ago now – eip!) we swung past Thailand for one last cheeky little holiday!  One of our ‘things to do’ whilst there was to do a Thai cooking course.  I looked forward to learning how to cook some of their a-mazing food so we found a little cooking school right on the beach in a quiet coastal part of Koh Lanta.  We were able to choose 5 different dishes to cook including a red curry paste and the age old favourite

Last week I popped down to the Vic Markets to buy our weekly meat & veg. After every visit I always wonder why I bother with supermarkets when there are such amazing markets right on the doorstep. Everything is so cheap and the produce is far fresher than anything you’d find in the shops.  Not only that, but there’s so much choice – I always seem to find different varieties of vegetables that you’d never find in conventional supermarkets.     No trip down to the Vic markets would be

Lucky last on the Halloween inspired menu – Eaton Mess served with thick blood coulis and meringue mushrooms! And aren’t those mushrooms just too cute? These little ‘shrooms look so real and they’re all made out of meringue…well I’ll be donkey’s uncle! This is a nice easy dessert to make as you can prepare most of it the day before. All that’s needed is a little last minute assembly. So what’s been happening this week with you guys? I know I’ve been so busy I haven’t have time to scratch

Today I’m celebrating my first milestone… 25 posts! Yippee! It’s another chilly day here and I’m hanging for some constant warm weather to de-thaw my bones! I thought Melbourne’s winter would be short and sweet but this last little bit seems to be dragging on f-o-r-e-v-e-r. I can’t wait for warm alfresco dining every night – bliss! But… the good the news is we now have daylight savings and just having those extra few hours after work is amazing. I’m even hoping I’ll have some time to photograph midweek after

I’ve been thinking recently why exactly I’ve taken on this blog and taking the time to cook/bake/photograph and post everything;. I’ve discovered two things about myself. 1. I love baking. It puts me in a happy place and it’s always nice offering people home baked goodies. And 2. I’m not as good at cooking as I am baking. I’ve got my staple dishes that are always favourites but I want to teach myself how to be a better cook. I plan to cook lots of staple dishes that are always

  I made this Apple & Blueberry Pie for a bbq a few weeks ago and it was so well received – to say the least! If you’re not confident about making pastry, have no fear. The recipe is dead easy as you pretty much just put everything in your food processor/mixer/bowl and just beat it till it comes together. I think one of the most important things in pastry making is letting it rest and cool in the fridge. Let your filling cool quite a bit before you start
