Passion Tree – Chatswood Interchange

A few weeks ago I was lucky to attend the opening of Passion Tree at the Chatswood Interchange. Along with my sister we tried quite a few of the sweet treats on offer. This is the second Passion Tree shop to open, with the first branch being in Brisbane CBD.  Set in a beautiful shop, […]

Mr. Miyagi – Windsor | Melbourne

Our first night in Melbourne was spent celebrating Alessia’s birthday at Mr. Miyagi, a recently opened Japanese eatery and bar on Chapel St, Windsor end. Alessia came across it on a Melbourne photographers Facebook page and we thought it would be good to check out something new and exciting and see what the hype was […]

Coconut Rice & Berry Compote | Recipe

Happy Sunday, I hope everyone has been up to some mischief this weekend. Mine has been relatively quiet (eating expeditions did occur…standard) since the last few have been action packed. Sometimes it’s nice to just do nothing and actually relax before a new working week, though generally when I do this, I get to Monday […]

Strawberry, Coconut & Chia Seed Banana Bread | Recipe

Happy weekend all! I made this healthy Strawberry, Coconut & Chia Seed Banana Bread last Saturday and was hoping to share it with you during the week but I have literally been living at work, slightly busy at the moment. I’m often trying to substitute ingredients in recipes to make them healthier, so when I […]

My Greek Easter 2013

As promised I share with you today my photo diary of Greek Easter lunch 2013. Each year we celebrate Easter at home by having our family and friends over for a big lunch which turns into a whole day of gorging on amazing food. Weirdly, Greek Easter fell six weeks after Catholic Easter this year. I was hoping […]

Cinnamon & Banana Cookies | Recipe

I haven’t cooked at home for a while and had a sudden urge to go on a cooking spree on Saturday. Originally  I was just going to make a baked rice pudding (which I did) but then I came across this recipe for Cinnamon & Banana cookies and they looked too good to pass up. […]

Strawberry Creme Brûlée Tarts | Recipe

I grabbed this recipe from the Bourke St Bakery cookbook that my friend Ana bought me for my birthday. After visiting Bourke St for the first time last month and buying one of these tarts, I knew I had to attempt them at home. I didnt have the time to make my own shortcrust pastry, so I […]

Fig Crostata | Recipe

On the weekend my Dad brought home a huge box of figs from the markets. Taking the opportunity, I found a recipe on the Gourmet Traveller website for a Fig Crostata which I used as the base. It seems like my measurements may have been slightly wrong in the recipe as my pastry mixture was too […]

Toffee, Walnut & Caramel Brownie | Recipe

This is the ultimate decadent slice that anyone could wish for with a coffee in the afternoon. The sugar content would definitely give you a bit of high to get through any afternoon tasks that you have to do. I made this over the Easter weekend (Greek Easter) as we have a BBQ every year at our […]

Caramel Pecan Pie | Recipe

Judging from all of my recent recipe posts, you must all think I am the size of a house by now. This Caramel Pecan Pie recipe was so quick and easy I thought I should share it. I whipped this up on Easter morning to take to my friend picnic. There is nothing better then […]

Brownie Cookies filled with Peanut Butter Frosting | Recipe

Alongside my previous recipe post for Caramel Crunch Brownies which you can check out here, I also cooked up a batch of these brownie cookies with peanut butter frosting which were devine and extremely decadent. The recipe was also sourced from the 10th Birthday Collector’s Edition of the Donna Hay Magazine.   Ingredients: Brownie Cookie […]

L’etoile – Paddington

L’etoile is now closed for business.  With My Kitchen Rules being one of the top rated shows at the moment, it was decided that a visit to L’etoile was in order, to compare the cooking coming out of Manu Feildel’s kitchen who is a judge on the show. Along with three of my good friends […]
