Roasted Beetroot Dip

  HANDS UP WHO LOVES BEETROOT? I love it! In fact, when I was a little girl, one of my favourite sandwiches was a beetroot sandwich and my grandmother always had beetroot on hand for when I would come a stay with her! True story!   I grew up with a Dad who grew much of our own produce and now as a ‘grown up’ I’ve followed in his footsteps and do the same for my family.  Currently in my garden I have an abundance of beautiful beetroots. I grow different varieties, even golden in colour, but the deep blood red varieties are my favourite. I picked a big bunch of beetroot over the weekend and made a jar of my delish roasted beetroot dip and honestly, I just love it and hope you do too. Just like many of my recipes, they are simple to make, as my philosophy on food is to be; SIMPLE, QUICK, DELISH & NUTRISH! This dip is great on any platter, served alongside with some crackers, sourdough or GF bread. …

Conversations Around the Table

Sometimes you across someone and their business and you just click! Well, that’s what happened when I came across Danielle from ‘Around the Table’ Danielle is a mumma of 3, who believes in the importance of connection and eating together as a family. We got chatting and realised we had many beliefs in common. One of them being the very important action of sharing a meal and the conversations that can flow from this experience. Like most families these days, we are all busy and Danielle’s is no different, but within these busy lives, Danielle had noticed how often we miss the key moments and opportunities to come together over a meal and connect on a positive level. We often leave the TV on, or have devices/phones at the table and other distraction even eating in separate rooms and times. She felt so passionately about inspiring change with this that she got to work and developed a wonderful and fun deck of cards, not just any cards, but conversational cards to make the most of meal …

Winter Budget Saving Tips! Plus a bonus winter warming recipe!

Here in OZ we are in the depth of winter (well ok, technically its just clocked over into spring, but it most definitely still feels like winter and will for some time yet!). Where I live, on the Surfcoast in Victoria, today and this week is very, very chilly indeed…BRRRRR! So this morning when I got up, I decided it was most definitely soup weather. Nothing says winter like a big bowl of comforting, soulful soup don’t you think? The aroma of a hearty soup bubbling away on the stove brings that cosy feeling of home and family on a chilly evening. Soup is a brilliant low budget, nutrient dense meal that can satisfy hunger and feed a family without breaking the bank. One big pot can be packed full of protein, vitamins, minerals and fibre that keep hunger cravings at bay and provide a big daily serve of veggies. The versatility of soup means you can tailor it to your taste and dietary requirements and starting with a home made nutrient packed stock/broth is …

I’ve written a cookbook- Healthy on a Budget!

Hey there, Its been a quite a long while since I have written a blog, but I’ve been a little busy this year and during this pandemic. I decided to write a cookbook. Not just any cookbook, but one that I hope will inspire you to cook with your health in mind and your budget too! At the beginning of March 2020, things around Australia, as it already had been worldwide, started to change at a rapid rate. Covid-19, the pandemic that’s was and still is, reaching all corners of the world hit. I woke up really early one morning over Easter. I had been feeling a whole mixture of emotions over the previous weeks, dealing with the bombardment of bad news on the nightly news and the continuing increase of lockdown measures; being cut off from seeing my parents and loved ones, my daughter being schooled from home, worried for my step son who is an essential worker as a trainee paramedic, changes around me and my hubby’s work. Friends and family facing job …
