Angus and Julia Stone were only playing one concert in NZ this year – and as per usual it was not in Wellington. So Hamish and I decided (I decided) that it would be a good excuse to have a long weekend in Auckland. Naturally, for a long weekend you want to make the most of every minute you have on holiday. We were amped to get up to Auckland ASAP on the friday night so […]
September has proven to be a busy month for me. Luckily, I have bought a jazzy new camera (Fujifilm X-M1) to capture all of the fun. Here are a few snaps: Skiing in Ohakune: The drive to Ohakune takes around 4 – 5 hours (more like 5 for the Barina) and this is the best sight you will see on the way up.
Wellington On a Plate was made for me. Two weeks of the year when you don’t have to feel bad about eating out everyday and trying to engulf as many burgers and fries as possible. Basically, Wellington On a Plate (WOAP) is a food festival where many of the best restaurants put forward a two or three course menu accompanied with a matched beverage.

I can’t rave about this recipe enough! If you are after a hearty winters meal that is super easy, then this is the dish. Place your ingredients in the slow cooker, leave it to cook while you’re at work and then you will return home to the most delicious smell. When you are ready to eat, cook pasta and serve. Simple as that.
This is the best granola recipe! It is freaking delicious and the best part is that its healthy. It has a lovely crunchy texture due to all of the tasty nuts that get baked in coconut oil and maple syrup, and then the cinnamon really takes it to the next level. This is a recipe from Deliciously Ella.
Last saturday me and my friends decided to have a pot luck dinner. I said I would do dessert, as it would be a good challenge for me since I normally pick to do savoury dishes over sweet. Currently, I am obsessed with My Kitchen Rules. Everyone on the show always makes their own pastry so I thought I would give it a go. This is a recipe from Annabel Langbein’s book, Simple Pleasures.
I absolutely love baked eggs for breakfast! I know I have already posted a recipe for baked eggs on here, but this one is different, and maybe even more delicious! The first baked eggs recipe I posted has a tomato base, but this one has more of a creamy base. So depending on your mood you can pick which one you want to cook for an easy brunch. You can also vary the filling to […]
Today I am at home sick with a head cold. I am currently wrapped up in my pink, fluffy dressing gown, wearing my purple flannel pjs and ugg boots. After drinking a litre of juice and drugging myself up with various medicines from the pharmacy, I have decided to make my favourite oats for breakfast (it’s 1pm) to attempt to make myself feel better.
