I just love coffee. And this statement is not limited to just one drink. I like it in the morning, long black, latte or cappuccino. Made drip, plunger or left to a professional barista. I like it in the evenings, with some vodka and Kahlua. I like a bean in the afternoons, covered in chocolate. […]
So every night in our house has a different ‘feel’. Mondays are usually meat free and healthy, sort of a detox after the weekends, with the use of things like kale and quinoa. Wednesdays are usually pasta. Friday night is always some kind of Asian, whether it be a Spirit House style Thai BBQ, a […]
Man is it easy to photograph food when it looks this pretty! Unfortunately, in true Laura form, I forgot to add the finger lime caviar for the photograph. It wasn’t until I was half way through devouring this beautiful dish that I saw the caviar on the bench and added it, and while my taste buds […]
I am generally pretty hopeless when it comes to baking. I don’t enjoy directions and I always think I know best. I don’t. So, for one, very disciplined day, I baked. Earl Grey Hot Cross Buns. Very yummy. Enjoy warm out of the oven with cold butter and a cup of tea.
I have a delicious Autumn pasta for you! Sweet caramelised onions, cavolo nero slightly crisp from being fried in the brown butter, roasted walnuts, and then you mix through the creamy ricotta and warm egg yolk! So good. Perfect quick and easy midweek dinner.
So this is dads creation. A Texas style beef and bacon burger, with jalapeno aioli and smoky tomato relish. It’s actually pretty damn good! Total dude food.
I love all things American, and edible. Well, almost all, I actually hate Oreos. I think they are bland and just taste like sugary nothing. And, not only do I hate them, but I kinda of judge the rest of the world on their bad taste for their universal love of them. However, in saying that, […]
Dad has a couple of mates who fish well, and fish often, so we are regularly spoilt with fresh, local fish, crabs, oysters and, just this weekend, scallops! Beautiful, fresh, and although quite small, delicately sweet, Queensland sea scallops. We didn’t get many so I did think of just throwing them in with my crab linguine, […]
The other Saturday night I felt like dessert. What to have, what to have? A quick look through the pantry, the fridge, the freezer and ‘Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food’ and, ‘ding ding ding!’ we have a winner! His Tutti Fruitti Pear Tarte Tatin. All I needed was 3 pears and dessert was sorted. And let […]
Does anyone remember the Nando’s Peri Peri chicken livers. Well I do, and I am devastated, and have been since about the late 90’s, that these are no longer on offer here in Oz. But, then I thought, as I usually do, why don’t I just make them myself. So. I did. Yum!
This 2015 business. Reeeeally hard to get into. But while I have had a slow start, this dish is worth the wait! Now I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but, “tooot tooot!”, this dish I made up is the best! Perfectly lean, tender, spiced lamb. A healthy and satisfying salad of quinoa and crunchy […]
Following the horrific events of this week, it has been cemented that Australia is a great country full of strong, resilient and compassionate humans, who will not be broken! In the face of fear and pure evil, Australia has come together, to honour the innocent lives taken, and protect and support all our citizens, no matter their […]
