A veggie dish so good, the Wiggles made a song about it. I made mashed potato this afternoon ready for dinner and Miss Charlotte pipes up; “Thanks for making mashed potato Mummy!” with the same excitement as if I had just offered her a rainbow ice-cream covered in sprinkles with a chocolate egg on top! “Can […]
Lasagna on the menu tonight but there’s no mince in the trolley. Three words. Meat free Monday. So it’s pumpkin, silverbeet and ricotta instead. A match made in heaven.

The key to a tomato tart – good tomatoes! These came from my sister in laws garden (thanks Lou) and instantly I started rummaging through the pantry and fridge to see what I could do with them. Although, tomatoes this good need nothing more than a bit of butter on a Sao biscuit, this recipe […]
