Recipe: vegetarian enchiladas

These enchiladas are super hearty: filled with sautéed sweet potatoes and beans, topped with gooey cheese and a homemade enchilada sauce. The enchilada sauce is my secret "ingredient" to make this recipe shine!

Recipe: pear up side down cake

The other day I had some kinda sad looking pears in my fruit basket. My husband had been taking a piece or two of fruit for lunch in his lunch box for the last couple of weeks and just when I up the fresh fruit purchasing in the household he decides he is over that… and I am left with fruit that I can't keep up with.

Review: Autolyse in Braddon

It has occured to me that I need to make the most of my pram loving, big boy before baby number two arrives. And the fact that it is so easy to get out and about whilst I only have one baby (God only knows how RetroMummy does it all). So, in an effort to make the most of my last 10 weeks of 'freedom' - I will be reviewing one Canberra cafe each week until baby number two arrives… Let's hope I don't go too early.

Recipe: Ragu with goat's cheese gnocchi

As we cook day in day out for our families, we often are trapped in the same 'go-to' meals that are quick and easy to prepare. And frankly, there is nothing wrong with our family favourites that are quick and easy to prepare - because you can whip them out in less then 30 minutes and they get eaten. Nothing worse then putting a whole heap of effort into food that ends up in the bin.

Life: Strange Dreams

I was reading a post the other day about how the planets can affect how we feel. And I'm not sure if it's the planets making me have these crazy dreams of late (or my pregnancy) but either way…I'd love it if these weird dreams stopped.

Guest Posts: Are you interested?

As most of you will know, I am pregnant with number two. I'm due in October and I like to take a brake from blogging when I am in hospital with baby/when I bring baby home for the first few weeks. As the count down to baby number two's birth grows closer I realise that I have to throw out the opportunity for guest bloggers whilst I have some down time (as I don't really like the idea of the blog going into 'radio silence').

Review: Murray valley pulled pork

The other afternoon, I was under the pump at home and then I realised that I had NOTHING in my cupboards for dinner. I contemplated running down to the shops to grab something, but Mr Moo had just fallen asleep after a long day of teething issues and I didn't want to wake him. And then Murray Valley Pork came to my rescue!

Recipe: mushroom and spinach gnocchi

So I still have a glut of mushrooms - I know crazy right, mushrooms have been crammed into everything I have been cooking of late. I even whipped up some bangers and mash the other night with an EXTREME mushroom gravy…and yet still I have more. Can mushrooms multiply in your fridge?

Recipe: padding out your lasagne

As the Canberra winter closes in, the need for emergency food relief for vulnerable families is increasingly critical. At the YWCA Food Hub, they provide a pantry-like system where young people and their families can access free, healthy nutritious food in times of need. And who doesn't a) want to support their local community and b) support women in general (RANT ALERT - I feel like women just don't support each other enough these days…end rant).
