Baking bread is not as hard as you think- you just need a bit of patience to mould it into a light fluffy loaf. I have adapted the recipe from Peter Mayle and Gerard Auzet’s book “Confessions of a French Baker” and the great thing is it cost about $1.40 to make.
I love dill pickles! They have such a beautifully intense flavour and are fabulous in a sandwich, with a cheese platter or just straight from the jar. Dill really tops off this preserve, and the good news is that it’s easy to grow!
Oats are a delicious and nutritious food that are great for camping. Light to carry, you only need to add a few things to make it a tasty breakfast to start an active day.
When you’re active outdoors, sometimes you need a lightweight snack to curb your hunger and give you energy. These protein power bars are great for that. I like these for the savoury edge that the tahini provides: sometimes energy bars can be too sweet. No bake and easy to make!
I like big buns and I cannot lie…. Hot Cross Buns, that is (although I am partial to a nicely coiffed man bun). These little gems have been injected with some extra fibre by using wholemeal flour as well as the traditional fruit n’ spice and all things nice. A lovely Easter treat!

Fritters are a favourite of mine and a great meal to enjoy at breakfast, lunch or dinner. They don’t need any fancy cooking skills either. I like things a bit of spicy so have added chillies and mustard for a little extra zing! If you like things a little more mild, you can replace the…

Risotto is so easy to make and you can make it all in one saucepan- fantastic for camping!. I love making mine with mushrooms but you can swap for other delicious vegetables such as beetroot, peas or pumpkin.
Willunga Farmers Market was the first farmers market to be established in South Australia. With over 60 stalls selling produce from nearby farms and products from the Fleurieu Peninsula, you can see all that is local, fresh and seasonal.
Pancakes are such an easy recipe and very affordable too- you only need basic ingredients. I’ve used strawberries in this batch (we got these from The Big Strawberry farm when we were on a road trip). The fantastic thing about strawberries in Australia is that you should be able buy them 12 months of the…
Smoothies are a quick, easy and nutritious breakfast or snack. By using frozen fruits, you can make into a creamy and fresh smoothie bowl and tailor to the flavours you like. A good formula for making up smoothies is: 1 .5 cups fruit (ideally frozen, but you can also include a combination with fresh and dried)…
