Turmeric Chicken Broth - Sundays at Cook Republic

The Sunday Project – Turmeric Chicken Broth And Autumn Mornings

6 months and counting. I haven't worked in the weekend. Instead, I have reclaimed Saturdays and Sundays. I even have a sweatshirt that says Saturdays Sundays and it has become my weekend uniform (I'll post a picture next time!). Since quitting work in the weekends, I have rediscovered the excitement I felt for Sundays as a child. I never thought that would ever be possible again. Because, Sunday is really free. Truly. No strings attached. Fre... Read More >>

Either way, the thrill of owning a handy collection of recipes for a much less price than you would for your daily coffee never gre... Read More >>

Roast Garlic Chicken With Chestnuts And Sticky Marsala Sauce

  We are now into week 6 of our renovations and I will be the first to admit - it hasn't been easy. For one, it has been bloody cold in our garage where we eat our meals (our garage is partially open with fancy gaps in brickwork). Cooking and washing up at the lone cold garden tap is hellish when the wind picks up. When we do eat inside the house, we are perched precariously on stools and empty boxes with bowls in our laps doing our ver... Read More >>

Zucchini Noodles With Thai Pesto Plus Free Tasty Express Recipe Sampler

Tasty Express launched quietly yesterday, without fanfare. I almost missed it. I did share a video on Instagram giving you a quick flip-through the book.
