If you are new to the blog and unaware of my avocado saga, have a read. It is truly funny. And yes, like most people who first start out by eating an avocado with a spoon; I graduated to making guacamole next. And like all those people who first made guacamole, my...

Since sharing the story of our Cocktail & Oyster Night ritual on the blog many posts ago, I have received numerous emails and messages affirming what a fun idea it was for parents who don't always have the luxury of going out on dates. A lot of those emails and...

Watermelon Grilled Cheese Pizza
Watermelon Grilled Cheese Pizza

Watermelon is the essence of summer. Bright, juicy, sweet and cooling - it is the whole enchilada. The quickest way to eat it would be to slice it into giant wedges and go to town on the red flesh as juice streams down your elbows. But we are humans and we love to...

How To Make An Avocado Rose And Pistachio Dukkah Bowl

When I first moved to Australia in 2005, I had never seen an avocado in person. When I did bring home one shiny green avocado, it turned out to be hard and tasteless (little did I know that there was an exact science to choosing and eating a perfectly ripe avocado)....
