How can something so simple be so sublime?
Darling Fifi, cute as a button baby-blue Fifi. Mmmm. Fifi! Two weeks ago it rained cats and dogs, not literally, but I wouldn’t have been surprised if it had. There was a lot of water, and, well, Fifi has a habit of wetting herself and forming a puddle under the driver’s feet when it rains. […]
Mmmm. Melting moments … sweet, creamy, and, yep, melt-in-the-mouth.

Simple dishes. Really scrumptious […]

Aussie prawns. Yeah. Best in the world, I reckon. Stick them on top of a juicy watermelon & lime salad and you’ll have your own little bit of magic right there on a plate.
Hot, cool, sweet, sour and crunchy – just the ticket for a balmy summer’s evening.
Bursting with colour and crunch, what might seem like an odd combination – and there’s no denying that tangelos and sugar snaps don’t often cosy up to each other on the same plate – is actually sensational!
No guilt with this dessert – you are getting your daily fruit!
Fire and smoke, spicy lamb …smells like summer!
Mmmm. Get your choppers munching on these chocolatey morsels.
Whoo-hoo. Yellow gold. An antiseptic, a gargle, a digestive aid, clears sinuses, too, and it’s a much-loved preservative in pickles and chutneys. Add some to your vege shakes for a health kick.
