I posted a biscuit variation of these nut free bars on my Instagram page a few weeks back. You can find the recipe over on my friend’s blog Love Mamas. Vic is a hugely inspiring mother and friend and dedicates her time to helping out other mothers through her fabulous post natal care and post natal doula services here in Wellington. Not long after having Ira 6 months ago I was fortunate enough to be given a beautiful meal […]

  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.

This recipe for kimchi has been a long-awaited blog post and by far the most requested I have had to date. This will be my last post for the year so I can enjoy some uninterrupted down time with my family and our friends. I am also excited to work on some recipes and other projects over the next few weeks that I will share in the new year. I will post the odd photo on […]

   This is one of the first dishes Matt ever made for me. It is actually his mother’s recipe (that we have adjusted slightly) and has become a staple in our house when we need something that is easy and quick to put together while being budget friendly. I buy our beans dried and soak them overnight with a bit of apple cider vinegar before cooking them and storing them in the freezer.

Meet our newest addition! Baby Ira, born at home on the morning of September 30th. He is a delight and we are all smitten with him. Thank you to everyone who has been so generous in making us meals and treats and providing amazing support in other ways. And also for being so darned excited about his arrival.

This is one of the tastiest curry dishes and it is on the menu for dinner this week. The browned onions add a rich flavour and pair beautifully with the tomato and tang of the kokum. It is also easy and quick to make and friendly for people who eat a vegetarian or solely plant-based diet. I often make a mung bean dahl (recipe coming soon) and basmati rice to go with it. Slow-rise spelt […]
