Recipe Box

I am always on the hunt for new recipes. Whether it be searching online or stealing recipes from everyone I know it usually comes hand in hand with billions of pieces of scrap paper with hastily written recipes on them.

Toddler Friendly Pasta

This dish is a great way to get some veggies into fussy little toddlers. Its even suitable for smaller babies, from about 9 months. If you are feeding a baby you can use a stick mix to blend up the sauce so its smoother.

Pork and Cashew Stir Fry

As a teenager I was not a huge fan of stir fry. I didn't like the crunchy veggies, I hated rice and I loved sauce, something stir fry just never had enough of.

Chicken and Chorizo Casserole

I love when winter comes around. Not because I like the rain, or the freezing cold, but I love the food!
Big slow cooked meals made to comfort you on a chilly day. Casseroles in particular are my favourite. They seem to fill your house with an amazingly rich aroma that instantly warms you.

Basic Cupcakes

Cupcakes seem to be all the rage these days. I guess its because they come in a wide variety of flavours and are easy to make and even easier to eat.

Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni


Everyone should try and eat a "meat free" meal at least once or twice a week. Which is how this recipe came about. One of the girls I work with requested a vegetarian recipe because they had been eating too much meat and she was getting sick of chicken.

Chocolate Chip Cookies


Who doesn't love cookies? Especially when they are still warm from the oven and all gooey in the middle.
Cookies are a treat that you can bake together with someone, whether that is your kids, Nana, Mum or best friend.
