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.

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!)

Make no mistake – I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and on occasion, I do like me a bit of jam. It’s something that is in the cupboard for special occasions – rarely does it make my ‘everyday breakfast’ toast. But after eating at a delicious little café on Dominion Road in Auckland […]
