Spaghetti with Spinach pesto and prawns

This recipe couldn’t be easier.  Boiling the water was about the most time consuming part. A quick whizz, heat and stir. It’s also a great way to hide vegetables from fussy eaters. I don’t often eat pasta, but it’s another of those things niggling in the back of my head. As a post workout carb More…

Fruits of the Forrest Frozen Yoghurt

Summer took it’s time but it’s finally here. 41ºC (106ºF for your American types) makes it officially too hot to leave the house or cook. I’ve been eating frozen peas straight from the packet to keep cool, then I spotted the frozen berries and it all became clear, I would exist on frozen yoghurt! Possibly More…

Pan-fried Lima Beans in Herb Pesto

I’ve been playing around with beans a lot lately. They’re are cheap and full of fibre which means that they fill you up and provide a steady source of energy. Lima beans are my current favourite.

Every year I confirmed my suspicion that they were mushy and bitter and not worth eating. All this changed when, mid-winter, I purchased some sprouts at the farmers market and munched on one raw.

Cheap Eats 2: Chicken fried rice

Nasi goreng and other fried rices are quick, cheap and easy and one of my favourite dishes to make at home. For the my brother who has just moved out of home, this should mean he’ll have more beer money and still get a decent meal in. Note: this is part of the Cheap Eats More…

A figure friendly pizza

I’ve been making the bases for this pizza for a few weeks now for breakfast. I make them in big batches and then toast them in the morning and spread them with vegemite. So when we had some leftover proscuitto and pasata in the fridge I thought it’d be a perfect oppurtunity to give a More…

Dukkah crusted Salmon with greens

A lot of people know eating salmon is good for you due to the omega-3 fatty acids. However, people who are not brought up cooking fish sometimes worry about how to cook it. My friend Sereyana posted on my facebook wall recently, that she was searching for an easy and healthy salmon recipe. Off to More…
