I rarely buy magazines anymore especially food magazines. I think there’s a combination of reasons for this. Having access to the internet gives me endless sources of information and recipes, I don’t want to waste paper and have a stack of magazines I have to throw out (I did that for years), my bookshelf of cookbooks need to be used and I like to be creative. But I do love flicking through a magazine occasionally (when I have the time) especially when they’re packed with incredible recipes. Last weekend’s rainy weather kept me housebound where I cooked and ate most of the weekend. When I was doing the grocery shopping I spotted Taste.com.au Magazine and the comforting image of pumpkin soup and the text ‘101 cosy recipes’ won me over.

This deliciously indulgent cheesecake is perfect for special occasions or a dinner party. It doesn’t require any baking and is quick and easy. I made this one at Easter so I added some Easter eggs and a bunny. Grated Toblerone or drizzled melted chocolate would do the trick and make it look pretty. I added whole caramello Easter eggs in the filling for the surprise but you could add anything! Pieces of rolo or oreos would be yummy.
I love experimenting, making new things and using up what I have in the fridge and pantry. Dips are great to while up if you’re entertaining or if you’re looking for a healthy snack and I have a few recipes that are super easy and so delicious. Continue reading Homemade Hummus

This Japanese delight, Okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake or pizza), pronounced ok-on-om-o-ya-ki is one of my (many) favourite Japanese dishes. I’ve made it a few times and trust me, it’s much easier to make then it is to pronounce! Continue reading Make Okonomoyaki (Japanese pancake) at home

Are you a coffee lover? I am and I’m lucky that we have our own espresso machine and Mr Eat Canberra makes me coffee everyday. But I don’t like milky coffee and sometimes I feel like I need to give my body a break from milk. After a trip to Byron Bay last week I was feeling inspired to recreate something I tried. So last night I put in my order for a double espresso shot instead of my usual latte.
