As I’m typing this post, Sydney’s weather is out of control really. Since yesterday, a massive storm has taken over the city and its surrounding region: it’s been raining heavily for two days non-stop. But what’s really impressive is the wind. The gusts are so strong I swear I could fly if I tried. Well, ok maybe not, but I’m […]

Quick and Easy Hazelnut Sardines Rillettes

Being more of a savoury girl, I’ve always loved appetizers (more than desserts!) and rillettes are on my top 10 list. Any kind of rillettes, really. I love the ones made with meat or fish. I’ve already shared a quick and easy recipe for salmon rillettes on the blog, and now it’s time for another fish: sardines! […]

Paleo Cherry Pie

Ever since I made my recipe for balsamic roasted chicken with easy cherry sauce I knew I wanted to make this cherry sauce again as it was my favorite part of the dish. Cherries go really well with meat and other savory dishes but this time I wanted to make something sweet, something more “traditional”. And what’s more […]

Crockpot Italian Meatball Tomato Soup

Call me lazy but having to brown the meat, or cook anything else before actually starting the slow-cooker is a big no-no. To me, the whole point of using a crockpot is to throw everything in the pot, turn it on and walk away. I like to think of this kitchen tool as busy people’s savior. They can just […]

Healthy Blueberry Muffins

  These healthy blueberry muffins made their first appearance when we were having some friends over for brunch. I had previously spotted a similar recipe in a Woman’s Magazine cookbook (their cookbook collection is amazing btw!) and this brunch was the perfect occasion to bake a little treat. I knew I wanted to make these muffins gluten […]

Winter Chicken Minestrone Soup

Loaded with veggies like carrot and celery, this chicken minestrone soup is both healthy and comforting. And for once, it doesn’t seem weird for me to post a winter recipe when we’re in the middle of summer in Australia. It’s been raining almost non-stop since yesterday and as strange as it may sound, I’m really glad! […]
