Busy busy busy…and it’s only going to get worse with the silly season fast approaching! Yes – the festive season is hot on our heels, only 5 weeks away. GULP! So with that in mind, I’ve been busy arranging a reprint on the Adeline & Lumiere Christmas book. Last year I was so busy designing the book, arranging the printing, sending them out, it was all a mad rush to ensure everybody had them before Christmas. To make a brand new book was a little bit too much for me

If you follow me on Facebook you might have seen one of my updates earlier in the week… the excitement of my latest purchase, the Jerusalem cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi. The other day I popped into my favourite independent book shop The Hill of Content to have a little look around. As soon as I spotted Jerusalem, and had a flick through, that was it. I had to have it. It has the most amazing looking salads and even a ‘stuffed’ section. So good. All week I’ve been reading through

I’ve been so busy with work lately, I feel like I’ve been neglecting the blog! I feel so bad if I don’t post at 6am on a Tuesday morning. It’s quite silly the pressure I put on myself, which surprises me as I’m not usually this organised. The only reason why I’ve kept it up (the only thing I can put it down to) is the fact that I love doing it. It’s hard finding the motivation (especially on the weekend when all I want to do is relax) but

Well what a contrast in weather from last weekend to this weekend! From high thirties straight to low twenties.

It’s a vegetable I often overlook so thought I’d give it go. In the end it was quite a simple pie to make, and a great way to use up any excess vegetables you may have laying

On Friday we attended the exhibition Trophy Lives to see Seb’s print (amongst other illustrators) on the wall at the Hungry Workshop. It was also the official opening/warming of the space and boy the place was PACKED! All prints looked amazing as they were beautifully framed by United Measures which are seriously a work of art in themselves. We’ve been meaning to get a few prints framed here but just haven’t got around to it – yet another task on the list of ‘Things to Do’. You can read more

As I’ve said previously, my mum is a wonderful cook. I’ve tried to recreate some of her recipes on the blog (such as her Silverbeet & Feta Lasagne) but recently I’ve created some of my own ‘family favourites’. From what I’ve been told they are ‘phenomenally tasty’…  and yes, that’s quoted! I guess this is what you could call one of my signature dishes. This recipe has been tweaked and perfected every time I make it, and it just seems to get better and better. For me, risotto has been
