hearty vego curry

Surpriiiiise! Two recipes in two days…whaaaat?! I thought I’d quickly pop this hearty vego curry up this morning before heading into TVNZ for Breakfast as it’s one of the curries I will be talking about this morning. Given Pog and Hoob are both mostly vegetarian I am always thinking of things that I can make […]

Lordy, Lordy it’s been a while! Are you still out there!?? My life has been so crazily busy lately, I am relieved to finally have a new recipe for you.

port-soaked sultana & dark chocolate brownie

Lordy, lordy, lordy it’s been a busy few weeks…but first the brownie.

ultimate king salmon scrambled eggs & king salmon, edamame bean & avo slaw

I have been in ‘sad-arse dinner for one’ mode again lately, which has ironically worked out spectacularly well for my latest collab with Regal Marlborough King Salmon! Today’s recipes are for two cold smoked salmon snacks, both of which are super quick and easy to prepare, and can be increased in volume if you want […]

summer kumara & chicken tart with tomato & corn salad

Happy Friday! I was going to call this a picnic tart and salad, but given the weather forecast for the weekend I won’t…let’s call it a summer harvest tart instead? Personally I can’t wait for a bit of wild, wet weather, lovely as the summer sun has been, it’s just about at ‘too much of […]

espresso panna cotta & caramel coffee eton mess

Goooood morning, and happy Sunday! It looks like another, cloudless, blue-sky day outside my bedroom, so a perfect morning to share these two luscious, summery desserts. Both have a coffee base but with a twist – the first is an espresso panna cotta which is rich, cool and creamy, yet still light – magic. (The […]
