Dairy Free Banana Pancake Fritters / Dairy Free Egg Free Banana Cake

My daughter is allergic to dairy, eggs, peanuts and cashews. So naturally, I have learnt to substitute a few things around the house to suit her. For example, Nutella for Sweet Williams Dairy Free Chocolate Spread. Cow’s milk for soy milk. Butter for Nuttelex dairy free spread. Eggs for silken soy tofu (for the soft texture in meals). We have adjusted really well, and our meals at home have been allergy-free 80% of the time. The other 20% include chocolate snacks (just stay away from her while eating it), ice cream (she has her own dairy free soy ice cream), … Continue reading Dairy Free Banana Pancake Fritters / Dairy Free Egg Free Banana Cake

What’s With The Cookbook Obsession?

What is it about cookbooks that makes me go… “mmm.. tempting (to buy)”… ALL. THE. TIME. It’s not like I actually use it to cook at home. It’s not like I actually follow recipes to cook, in fact 95% of the time I wing it and food still turns out pretty tasty. I am not saying I can naturally whip up a 5-star dish without referring to any guidelines on the Internet, but I know what tastes good so I cook what tastes good to me. So… why do I keep buying these cookbooks?? The more and more I contemplate, … Continue reading What’s With The Cookbook Obsession?

Go Native Restaurant, Berwick

Photo Credit: https://www.facebook.com/gonativeaus Just around the corner from home in Berwick, a new restaurant emerged just a few months ago. I remember receiving a promotional flyer in my mailbox and thought to myself “I must go and check it out someday”… and that someday somehow just happened recently. I must say I was pleased, it was a decent restaurant and we needed more decent restaurants in the area. I wasn’t completely wow-ed, there is still some room for improvement.  Go Native offers native and traditional dishes from different regions around the world including street food from the Philippines, Cambodia and the … Continue reading Go Native Restaurant, Berwick

Spicy Mexican Roast Chicken Recipe

I wanted to eat chicken today. I actually wanted to eat chicken really badly today! So I thawed an Extra Large whole chicken that I got from Coles last week On Special, and while it was thawing I was pondering all day what I would do with it. In other words, how would I cook this chicken to best satisfy my craving for chicken??? Do I cook a chicken curry? Do I steam it? Do I chop it up and make fried chicken (I probably would have if it wasn’t so much effort, but it was too much effort when … Continue reading Spicy Mexican Roast Chicken Recipe

Ordering Food Delivery Online + $50 Menulog Voucher Giveaway!

As a busy mum with two very young kids, some nights I barely manage to put a decent meal together.  If we have had a busy day and I have either been out most of the day or had other chores to take care of, or had to do some work on the computer while the kids are napping, or even just needed to have a snooze myself in the afternoon just to stay sane, 5.30pm comes along and I realise the baby needs to be breastfed and bathed – and I still haven’t put dinner on. How am I … Continue reading Ordering Food Delivery Online + $50 Menulog Voucher Giveaway!
