Ready Steady Cook

I was contacted by the Grape Escape and told my name had been put forward as a local chef for the Ready Steady Cook competition. I was surprised and hesitant. After I sat on it for a bit, I called back and said YES!

Grampians Grape Escape

In just over a week, even though it feels like a month has already passed, I am finally sitting down to share the Grape Escape experience with you. 

Sunday Lunch at Cat's

I was in my element! It finally happened, I bought my house about 7years ago and always dreamt of hosting a luncheon at mine with local foods and old techniques.

Eggplants For Days

September 2021, I bought a variety of seeds from 'The Little Veg Patch' after I built up the garden beds. I'd never grown eggplants before

The Quandong

Growing up, I heard of the Quandong, however, I had never seen, harvested, or tasted Quandong until recent years.

Scones

The good old Scone! There’s a reason why these are a spoken treasure and it's because when made correctly they are a delight that is achievable by anyone. 

Are you a camper or a glamper?

Me? I am a camper, but if the extra items are there to turn it into glamping I'll embrace the opportunity. 

My Almond Tree

It’s beautiful when things grow - Last Christmas, my mum gave me an almond tree. I didn't think that I would see seeds on it in less than 12 months.

Billie at Meez On Plus

I met Billie when I was helping out at a function at Adelaide Museum for Warndu back in March.

Burdekin Plums

The Burdekin plum gives me similar warm soul feelings as when I see Saltbush.

Starting with Garden Beds

Just so we're all on the same page, I am not an experienced gardener, I have no idea what I am doing, I like to give things a craic and then if they don't work - I don't do it again hahaha.

Croissants - easier than you think

I dare you to make these delights. You can do it. They may not be as fabulous as the ones available at markets or bakeries, have a go, if anything, it will make you appreciate the croissant even more.
