Autumn has set in well and good here in the southern hemisphere…and winter will soon be saying hello. I’m actually looking forward to it (crazy, i know!). Winters to me means warm cuddles, snowboarding, hot chocolates and warm comforting stews. This recipe from Jamie Oliver is one of those cuddly, oozy and comfy meals that […]

Wowzers, for those in the southern hemisphere, can you believe that summer is OVER??! Well, I did miss a chunk of it when I did this in Japan. Yes, there’s a lump of snow on my helmet. No idea how it got there but it was a great trip…over-dozing a little on sake and grilled […]

Since I’m playing catch-up with my posts, this dish was actually made last year but I thought after all the festivities and indulgence of […]

khaolak

The hubs and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in Khao Lak, Thailand. (Okay this was back in June, but life’s been too hectic I can’t keep up!) Khao Lak is on the mainland, about an hour’s drive from the more popular Phuket and Phi Phi Island. We picked Khao Lak because we wanted a beach […]
