Spinach and Tomato Bechamel Pasta Bake


You guys, it's getting colder. There's no denying that creep of autumn into Melbourne. Cool, dark mornings, days where it just doesn't quite warm up, the re-emergence of evening socks. What, you don't have evening socks? This is one of my favourite things to cook when the weather turns chilly (hell, it's one of my favourites anyway) … [Read more...]

Chocolate Pudding Pots


What's better than chocolate pudding? Chocolate pudding in a cute pot, that's what! Whipped cream optional. Unless you're me. Then it's mandatory. While I prefer regular custard (perhaps a little vanilla bean), and I prefer it warm, the kids go nuts for these little cups of joy.

Blueberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Almost like Elaine, who wished there were only muffin tops on Seinfeld that time. "Top of the Muffin to ya!" and all that. Feel free to make proper-sized muffins, this … [Read more...]

Does This Bother You?


I posted this on Instagram a little while ago - someone asked me what I was doing, and I replied I was wondering if I should change this uneven picture situation, or if I should let it go. I let it go. The overwhelming majority of people who responded were like "oh my EYES" and "make it STOP" and "I couldn't live with that". I was advised to … [Read more...]
