All hail Sally Wise’s chicken stroganoff double-crust pie

It's become cold in Sydney all of a sudden. Well, I guess it is almost June, but having had nothing of a summer, it's confronting to be suddenly faced with winter. I wish, wish, wish the rain would stop and give us all a chance to dry out a bit. Winter isn't exactly...

Lucy Tweed’s sticky ribs and foil spuds dinner

Lucy Tweed’s sticky ribs and foil spuds dinner

Last week I recounted how Lucy Tweed's super greens pie unleased the green-eating monster in my son. Well, it's fair to say that the sticky ribs monster never needs unleashing. Unless you're a staunch vego, sticky ribs are always a bloody good idea. Let me just say...

Lucy Tweed’s super greens pie

My daughter made the super greens pie from Lucy Tweed's fab new cookbook Every Night of the Week and I just knew I had to share the recipe with you all. My 17-year-old son ate the greens. He loved the greens. He DEVOURED the greens. I don't think he's eaten anything...

Marie’s lamb curry – another CWA fave

I've got another fab recipe from the CWA Victoria cookbook From Our Kitchen to Yours for you. This one is an excellent lamb curry, conjured up by a lady called Marie. Nothing is mentioned about who Marie was or why she contributed her lamb curry to the Country Women's...

In Good Company: Fish pie recipe

In Good Company: Fish pie recipe

This fish pie recipe is another standout from Sophie Hansen's new cookbook In Good Company. I hesitate to define this book as a 'cookbook', despite there being hundreds of recipes in it. It's just that there is so much more to it. When you pick up a cookbook and you...

In Good Company: Little herb pies with pickles

In Good Company: Little herb pies with pickles

Sophie Hansen's gorgeous new cookbook In Good Company is out today. You might remember Sophie from such hits as her previous book A Basket by the Door, and especially her delightful golden syrup biscuits. Oh, those bickies! It's hard to believe, but In Good Company is...

Marley Spoon’s Thai-style pork salad

Marley Spoon’s Thai-style pork salad

I shared another recipe from the new book Step by Step with Marley Spoon by Olivia Andrews a couple of weeks ago. In the intro to that recipe, I talked about how this cookbook brings all the easy-breezy cooking from the home delivery company without all the awful...

My Asian-style everyday tuna salad

My Asian-style everyday tuna salad

Whenever we have something ricey for dinner (which these days means chia seedy or quinoa too – we throw in a handful or two with the rice), I always cook a little extra to make one of my favourite lunch dishes. I have about 100 variations on the humble, everyday tuna...

Practising gratitude can help older kids find more joy in life

Years ago, when the children were small and there were only two of them, we would talk about our best and worst parts of the day at dinnertime. Gathered around our timber dining table, a candle burning, night falling, we started a tradition that has since become a...
