What’s Cooking?

It’s the school holidays in my neck of the woods.  That means we’re busy, busy, busy. Having to juggle play dates, work, family adventures, and paper mache computer game characters (don’t ask) means I’m turning in this post a day late.  But better late than never, right?

My priorities shift when school’s out and you can forget about my well thought out family routine.   But that’s okay, it’s nice to have the little dude at home.  During this time I don’t want to have to think too hard about nourishing my family.  Luckily, I have come across some super tasty recipes from around the web that I can whip up pretty quickly.


The little dude likes to help me cook in the kitchen sometimes.  And by ‘cook’ I mean I have to prep all the ingredients so all he has to do is pour it all into the one big bowl and then stir it together.  Then we take whatever we have made over to my Mum’s place to show off our culinary skills.  The kid always says, “I made it all by myself.” 😉  This recipe would be perfect for one of our ‘Impress Grandma’ baking sessions.

Since becoming a veggie, I’ve become kind of obsessed with trying to supercharge all my old favorite dishes.  This dish is a great twist on an old favorite.  With the added boost of plant protein, I can enjoy this side whilst nourishing my insides.  (The Muffin Myth)


When it’s cold outside we all want a little extra comfort from our food.  One of my favorite things about home cooking is that with a few simple ingredients you can make a super impressive dish that also happens to be good for you.  The dish that follows is both comforting and impressive. (Love and Lemons)


I’m always looking for a new way to use up this ingredient once it’s past its prime.  Plus, being the massive sweet tooth that I am, this recipe is a great excuse to make dessert.  (Blissful Basil)


I never thought I’d be able to eat this dish again after I changed my diet.  I should have known someone would create a version that is visually appealing and nutritious.  So glad I stumbled across this recipe. (Oh She Glows)
