When the lovely folks at Penguin gave me the opportunity to take a sneak peek at David Herbert’s latest cookbook I jumped at the chance. Best Home Cooking is exactly that: a collection of two hundred recipes from Herbert’s Weekend Australian contributions that are delicious, easy meals and sweets best cooked and enjoyed at home over the dinner table with family and friends.
Recipes from the book David Herbert’s Best Home Cooking by David Herbert, with photography by Brent Parker Jones, published by Lantern, RRP $39.99.

It was the RSPCA Cupcake Day on Monday this week, and everyone at my workplace really gets into it. There are always heaps of different flavours, beautiful decorations and we can buy 3 of them for seven bucks. Bargain, right? I wasn’t sure what I was going to make until about a month ago when… Continue reading ->
One of my style goals (ugh, I don’t know if I like that term, but let’s just move on) for the past few years has been to wear more jewellery. I usually just wear some earrings and my wedding and engagement rings and that’s it. I never wear bracelets because I always find them too… Continue reading ->
TV Freaks & Geeks I think I only saw the first three or so episodes of Paul Feig’s 1999 series that’s set in 1980. Judd Apatow served as a producer, so it’s no surprise that all his films from the last few years feature a few of the cast members. The show centres around Lindsay… Continue reading ->
I’ve been AWOL from the blog a bit because we’re still busy settling into our new house, and as a result making smoothies hasn’t been high on my list of priorities.

Double digits, woo hoo! Apologies for the delay, but real life just keeps getting in the way, you know? But here we are! This month Kimberley and I wanted to talk about sidekicks in TV and film and how they support the main characters, Emmy nominations (and who was ROYALLY SNUBBED), as well as a… Continue reading ->
– It’s been a busy week for me. My sister and I saw Of Monsters and Men on Tuesday night and Florence + the Machine on Wednesday night. Both bands were incredible, but I have to say that Florence’s show edged in front a little because of how incredible Ms. Welch is live. Her voice… Continue reading ->
I’ve been buying a lot of raspberries lately. They’re not cheap, but they’re not too expensive either (compared to blueberries at the moment anyway!). I’ve also realised that for some reason I have an abundance of desiccated coconut in my pantry and that I need to use it up and/or stop buying it. Probably both…. Continue reading ->
This book has been popping up everywhere on my various social media lately. Facebook, instagram, online reviews. I needed a new book to read and read the synopsis quickly and quickly purchased it for my iPad. The Girl on the Train is author Paula Hawkins’ first novel, and it’s a quick, gripping read.
I posted week a few weeks ago about the things I’ve learned about selling a house, and the logical thing to do now is a post about things I’ve learned buying a house. Because obviously most of the time once you’ve sold your house you need to buy a new one or else you might… Continue reading ->
