French Onion Soup!

Here’s my “soup of the week” and it just happens to be one of my favorites, Donna Hay’s recipe that I have reproduced many, many times from her Modern Classics cook book. A rustic soup that is very easy to make and taste’s delicious! The Dijon mustard and the brandy are divine with the sweet onion flavor, excuse me … More French Onion Soup!

Beef kofta with tomato & mint quinoa salad!

This is not my recipe! It belongs to a clever cook/chef named Emma Braz  who had shared this awesome recipe on,  I took one look and knew I had to recreate this great simple dish, using some home grown produce –  coriander, spinach, mint and parsley! My hubby is the best guinea pig he will try anything I cook and … More Beef kofta with tomato & mint quinoa salad!

Cooking kangaroo can be a little tricky as you don’t want to overcook it which can make it tough and chewy, but you don’t … More Kangaroo!

I regularly have some in the freezer as it’s super cheap, supermarket delis sell squid … More Calamari!

Carrot soup!

The cold weather is on it’s way and nothing else can warm the cockles more than a homemade soup. Served with Gruyere toasts or a crusty roll a soup can be a meal in itself, meaty, veggie, hearty, chunky or smooth I hope to make one soup a week, I will endeavor to keep them very different and hopefully I can … More Carrot soup!
