The Omega

AKA the end. But first, moving and burgers. Recently I've been fleeing the natural disaster that is my CBD apartment, so cooking has been on the back-burner, if you will....ha. The good news is, we have somewhere to live that is huge, clean, central, has room for a BBQ and not one but THREE toilets.... Continue Reading →


Cheese and tamaaahhhta soup

I'm keeping it simple tonight. Because I'm.... Hot like wasabe when I bust rhymes Big like Leann Rimes Because I'm all about value In financial terms as well as the food I value, that being cheese on toast two ways (creamed AND cheddar) and Rosella condensed tomato soup.

Chili was lord of the Thai beef salad last night, supported by mint, basil, bean shoots and sizzle beef. The dish was a winner, but I hadn't used fresh chili in... Continue Reading →

Hot hot burnies hot

What's the perfect dish for the humid first day of summer? Why lasagne, of course. Ha. Cooking was a pretty traumatic affair today. I decided to do it in the afternoon so I could go for a swim and come back to a here's-one-I-prepared-earlier scenario. Unfortunately, cooking something which involves multiple pots and pans and steps... Continue Reading →
