Hearty mushroom breakfast

Is there ever an end to how many ways you can cook breakfast with a small number of ingredients? It never ceases to amaze me the number of different combinations that arise when you hunt around for a bit of inspiration. I was on a bit of a mushroom tangent recently and decided to bake…

One pan breakfast genius (bacon and egg cakes)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter break. While we’re still just skimming past the eggy time of year here’s another recipe with eggs. This delightful, no-fuss stroke of genius I picked up from my friend Luke’s lovely wife who lives in Korea. When I saw a picture he posted of it on facebook, I…

Happy Easter and here are some eggs

I’m about to pack my swag and trundle off for the week. My taller half and I are gathering everything we’ll need for a week, piling into Bertha the silver superbus, and heading north for the last rays of summer before daylight savings ends. Keep you fingers and toes crossed the weather man is kind…

Vegetarian frittata

For those who don’t know, we have two delightful Isa Brown chickens called Doris and Daphne. We got Daphne first and she’s top hen. She’s also a little older than Doris and her eggs are bigger. I find having two different sized eggs comes in very handy, especially when breaking down recipes into different quantities….

Healthy one pot breakfast

I love breakfast. There’s something really indulgent about leisurely weekend breakfasts and how they are the antithesis of that time of day during the week. Taking time to drink cups of well steeped tea whilst preparing and cooking fresh ingredients is one of my favourite parts of the week. Having said that convenience can also…

BBQ fare

I finally mastered a roast garlic hummus for a recent BBQ which is definitely worthy of a belated blog update. I spent Friday making dips and Saturday morning putting together the salads and everything was a hit. Roast garlic hummus 2 cans chickpeas or two cups cooked chickpeas 2 tablespoons tahini 4 tablespoons olive oil…

Meals in the madness

The last month has been pretty busy so I thought I’d cheat and pop up some of the on-the-go stuff that I’ve made during this time. My taller half dreamed of having chicken sausages for breakfast. He was actually sleep talking about it and I had a strange sleep-talky conversation with him and decided to…

Catching up

So I’ve been scanning through some photos I took of our food and produce over the last few months while I was studying and thought some of them are just too awesome to not share. Such as our first crop of peas, now that was a satisfying time taking a break from study and shelling…

Simple breakfast with added decandence

As a result of our gourmet feast we have a few pretty speccy ingredients in the fridge which I’ll be using to ramp up a few staples over time. For this simple breakfast I decided to use the salmon roe but the truffle paste is staring at me and begging to be combined with eggs…

Whiskey cured salmon with fresh herbs and eggs

These guys have some amazing produce and if you haven’t checked them out already I suggest you do. We happened to have some of their whiskey cured salmon in the fridge when I stumbled out of bed rather late on Saturday, that I was determined to let shine on a simple breakfast plate with other…

Fresh eggs

Other chicken owners may disagree but as far as I’m concerned Daphne lays the tastiest chicken eggs I’ve ever had. Of course I’m biased but hey… why not? Keeping it simple here with a spelt bread, bacon, fresh eggs and BBQ sauce sandwich. No listed ingredients. No fuss. Just make, eat and enjoy because some…

Breakfast inspired by Melbourne

We had a bit of a foodie weekend in Melbourne a couple of months back and I was inspired. Particularly by the breakfasts we ate at Pint of Milk and the Dutchess of Spotswood. The Dutchess of Spotswood was particularly outstanding serving up all sorts of rich unusual english fare such as blood sausage and…
