It's this time of year too that I start yearning for my favourite 'comfort meals' again; maybe it's the cool evenings or the insight that we're [...]

September 5 2014

There's something wistful about the start of September. It's filled with subtle changes; the days get shorter and there's a moodiness in the air, the leaves start turning and there's an early morning chill signaling summer's inevitable end.

Café sign and abandoned car in the woods We hopped on the ferry and skipped over to the Sunshine Coast a few weekends ago.

I've probably made about a million variations of rice and beans, it's an easy meal to throw together at a moment's notice, especially if you have some plain rice and beans cooked already. I thought about this spiced rice and beans on a long exhausting ride home on one of those activity-filled unending summer days, [...]

I've probably told the 'marmite story' a million times, of how my sister was anaemic when we were kids and marmite was one of the foods her doctor had recommended. It's the story of how the dark spread came into my life. I don't recall liking marmite that much as a child; my mom would [...]
