Heidi’s first birthday party…(any excuse to sip on sparkling and eat honey joys!)

We made it…. our (not so little) Heidi is now one! The photo below was taken before all her buddies arrived for her party last weekend. Whilst I love this photo, I prefer the ‘behind the scenes’ shots that show you her true personality…  … Read More

Christmas Ice cream Plum pudding

It is only fitting, in Australia, we have an alternative to traditional plum pudding … ice cream plum pudding.

I first tried this at my mother-in-laws house for Christmas a few years ago. I am not a big fan of traditional plum pudding (unless I smother it in custard and brandy butter – which is guaranteed to smother my body with the equivalent in fat stores!). But this version is absolutely amazing, and so much more appropriate for a southern hemisphere (hot) Christmas.

Salad dressing heaven… basil lime vinaigrette

I made this salad dressing on the weekend to serve on the garden salad with lunch. Our guests loved it and asked for the recipe … so here it is.

I must credit the ‘finding’ of this recipe to my parents (I’m not sure which one it was, so will give them both the credit). Mum always seems to have this in the fridge ready for anything that needs ‘dressing’. It is actually part of recipe (Warm salad of seared scallops, crispy potato cake and basil lime vinaigrette), they loved the dressing so much, they just make the dressing on its own now.

It will keep in the fridge for about a week to ten days, and is best removed from the fridge for a little while before serving.
