Eat Drink Blog 15 – A Post in Pictures

In the middle of October I was lucky enough to attend the national annual Eat Drink Blog 2015 conference. When Canberra won the  vote to hold the conference, most Canberra bloggers were really excited. This was our chance to show the rest of Australia just how damn good the Nations Capital was. The place to be,…… Continue reading Eat Drink Blog 15 – A Post in Pictures

Temporada, Canberra City – A Review

This review for Temporada has taken me a month to put up. Why? I’d say it’s due to my complete laziness, and the fact that I’m never out of the kitchen, cooking, long enough to actually write reviews of where I’ve been when out of the kitchen. Temporada was a restaurant that had been on…… Continue reading Temporada, Canberra City – 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.

Morks, Kingston Foreshore – A Review

This will probably be the worst review you’ve read about Morks. Why? Well, I’d like to think of myself as a true foodie first, and a blogger second, therefore I photographed, ate, enjoyed and gesticulated wildly about the place, and ate some more, drank a fabulous Alsace Pinot Gris, (thanks M, tops choice), yapped and caught up…… Continue reading Morks, Kingston Foreshore – A Review

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 – December 2014

Welcome to my Kitchen for the month of December. The very last one for 2014, and what a year it’s been. My first year blogging. Warning: You may overdose on Christmas Spirit if you choose to read any further. Seriously. It’s like The North Pole spewed Christmas throughout my house after a big night on…… Continue reading In My Kitchen – December 2014

Snapper by The Lake @ The Yacht Club, Canberra Southern Cross Club – Review

What better view of Canberra’s iconic Black Mountain Tower (or Telstra Tower to us oldies) could there be? I’m standing out the front of the Canberra Southern Cross Club’s reinvention of the Fish n Chip cafe/kiosk at the Yacht Club. And my thoughts on Canberra’s newest Fish and Chippery, Snapper? Fan-fishin-tastic. I don’t know what I…… Continue reading Snapper by The Lake @ The Yacht Club, Canberra Southern Cross Club – Review

Roasted pumpkin and chestnut soup, Canberra autumn in a bowl

I saw this recipe in the Canberra section of Goodfood.com.au and knowing that I had a big Queensland Blue in the cupboard from the Collector pumpkin festival, and excited about embarking on a hunt for local chestnuts, this was a recipe high on my list of things to cook this weekend. I love that I…… Continue reading Roasted pumpkin and chestnut soup, Canberra autumn in a bowl

Bendora Dam

The Ranger up at the Bendora Dam is trying raise awareness of his little spot of beauty. It was a great 4wd drive through the mountains, we set sail for the Brindies on the Canberra Day long weekend and just drove til we saw something that tickled our fancy on the signs up there. You’ll…… Continue reading Bendora Dam
