Roast Carrot Soup

I have had quite a few requests for soup recipes recently, and given that the first snow of the winter fell this weekend – I think that is completely fitting! I am not sure if there is anything much better than indulging in a big bowl of warming soup with a hunk of crusty bread […]

Thai Pumpkin Soup

The air is definitely feeling a little cooler now that we are well and truly into autumn, and whilst I do love summer, the autumn colours really are beautiful and the crispness in the air is a welcome relief after the humidity that we sometimes get here in Auckland.

Lemon Bliss Balls

The other night I went out for an amazing dinner with friends to a place in Auckland called Paris Butter. It was just delicious, and could not be faulted. I especially loved the Tarte au Citron.

My Anytime Bowl

Have you noticed how it’s super cool to eat your food out of bowls currently? I’m not talking about eating your soup or cereal out of a bowl (duh – eating those any other way is tough!) But there are smoothie bowls, acai bowls, ramen bowls, veggie bowls, fruit bowls…..it’s endless. Today I came across […]

Lunch Box Ideas

You might have heard about the mother of a kindergartener in Australia recently being ‘shamed’ for putting a piece of homemade chocolate slice in her child’s lunch box. A note came home with the child later that day stating ‘Your child has chocolate slice from the Red Food category today. Please choose healthier foods for […]
