In my kitchen

Um, how did it become NOVEMBER???? I’m sure it was August only last week.

And more to the point, why is summer here ALREADY? I’m completely sweltering in my office today, despite every door and window being open and the fan doing it’s lazy twirly thing.

This is the first weekend I’ve had at home in about four weeks and I have to say, it’s bliss. I spent the first few hours this morning lazing on the couch with a trashy novel and drinking tea. The only reason I stopped is because my iPad ran out of power so I had to put the book down. [click to continue…]

Julie's Place, Gosford

I’ve been a huge fan of Julie Goodwin’s ever since I watched the first season of Masterchef all those years ago. I loved how personable she was, how much she so obviously loved her husband and kids, and mostly how much her cooking style was like mine.
