Fiery Prawns On Wonton Crisps

The Valentine Smoothie And Healthy Smoothie 101

  I have an addiction. I feed it at eight o'clock every morning. Long before I feed it, I am thinking about it. Wondering how it will make me feel. Today, I fed it as usual.    My addiction.    It made me feel voracious and larger than life....

Quinoa Lentil And Smokey Eggplant Salad
Quinoa Lentil And Smokey Eggplant Salad

Summer Spice Bircher Muesli

Bircher muesli was a very recent discovery for me. On this trip to the Hunter Valley, I was hovering over the breakfast buffet laid out with a million choices. When there is too much food, I am indecisive and I hover.  Like a kid in the candy store. Not being able to...

Homemade Iced Green Tea With Mango

After my last post for 2013, I took a couple of weeks off work. I didn't write. I didn't shoot. I didn't think. And it felt good. I didn't get around to reading a single book, or sit on a beach staring away into the horizon. But I let go. I let go of my need to create...
