Originally posted on The Canberran:
? Canberrans are proud of our local wines. While only Mount Majura actually produces within the ACT border, we are more than happy to claim everything from Yass through to Lake George, it seems that we still can’t crack it with the best across the nation. James Halliday – possibly…

In My Kitchen – March 2015

Welcome to my kitchen for the month of March. I’ve been quite good this month and haven’t spent too much of my time buying things for my kitchen, more so being gifted fresh produce and baking like a champion. It seems like February/March is a time for figs and carrots. I know carrots aren’t in…… Continue reading In My Kitchen – March 2015

Welcome to my Kitchen for the month of February. The holidays are over, Tweenie started high school, Buddy started pre-school, we returned to dreary old work, and the world goes on.

High Fidelity, Phoenix Players – A Review

A Night at the Theater I’ve been given the wonderful opportunity to see a local Canberra musical based on a cult movie that I’ve watched several times. It’s one of those classic movies where you feel a connection with the characters, and even though they’re all terribly flawed, you envy their position in life and…… Continue reading High Fidelity, Phoenix Players – A Review

A long weekend, a fig and port cake and a jar or two.

It was the Australia Day long weekend, and I had it all to myself. SO had taken the kids down the coast for 4 lovely days. I had the house to myself, the remote to myself, the bed to myself and the kitchen to myself. Oh, the quiet, the peace and tranquility, I’ve enjoyed every…… Continue reading A long weekend, a fig and port cake and a jar or two.

Christmas Market Challenge? Yes please – A trip to EPIC Farmers Market

I’d heard about this invitation to market from a fellow blogger on a boat. It was an invite for Canberra bloggers to experience the Capital Region Farmers Markets on a personal level. To meet the stall holders, and find out a little more about them other than what was in front of you to purchase.…… Continue reading Christmas Market Challenge?

In My Kitchen – January 2015

Welcome to my Kitchen for the month of January. Wowsers. It’s January 2015. Fun fact: we’re as far away from 2000 as we are from 2030. Weird, hey. Want to see what Back to the Future got right for our year of 2015? Expect Marty McFly in October, apparently. How quick did 2014 go? Was it a…… Continue reading In My Kitchen – January 2015

A friend, a bag of rhubarb and a box of blood oranges

My friend Judy is a guru in the garden. I thought I had a super summer garden last year, but frankly, I’m a novice. A complete garden virgin. I planted my first productive garden in Nov 2013, and our haul of tomatoes, basil, peppers and chilli’s was pretty impressive for a first timer. Our winter…… Continue reading A friend, a bag of rhubarb and a box of blood oranges
