As a busy working mother of two children and a rambunctious toddler, I tend to prefer simple meals that can pass as another meal in the day. This helps me streamline my meal planning and also allows for a bit of meal juggling when the constant unpredictabilities of parenthood strike. Some days are a struggle (understatement) and my lunch meal plan goes out the window along with the lunchboxes and ingredients my toddler feels so […]

Bagels are a very special bread that originated in the Jewish communities of eastern Europe as far back as the early 1600s . These special breads are first boiled prior to baking, which makes them chewier and with a lovely, shiny crust. Bagels have always been one of my favourite treats, next to doughnuts, of course. About a decade ago I toyed with making bagels risen with yeast. They were delicious but I didn’t make […]

Have you tried making coconut yogurt but haven’t had much luck? I get questions from a large number of people about the secrets to making a consistently good coconut yogurt that is tangy and thick and that doesn’t separate. My method is EASY and I get a perfect batch every time. You don’t need any fancy equipment and you don’t even need to have probiotic capsules on hand. This method uses leftover coconut yogurt which you […]

  Photography by my lovely friend Virginia Woods-Jack I get mighty excited about making bread. It is my favourite fermented food and I never tire of watching the dough rise slowly throughout the day or the smell it creates during baking. I love how unique each loaf is when it is finished baking and pulled from the oven. Over the past couple of years I have slowly saved up and purchased a few bread-making tools […]

When a friend has had a baby I like to make these bars as a little treat. They are allergy-friendly for most people and a bit more nutritious than a standard slice or biscuit. They also don’t require exact ingredients so you can often make them with what you have lurking in the pantry. I buy a big 1kg tub of tahini from Pak N Save for about $13, which is more cost effective than the smaller […]

  This bread recipe is the version I make using instant yeast instead of sourdough starter. For any of you who don’t have a sourdough starter, or if you forgot to feed the starter before bread-making day, this recipe doesn’t require any preparation and still produces a beautiful bread with a great flavour and minimal effort.
