I made a spur of the moment decision and organised a visit to see my friends and family in Canada last week! So, this post comes to you from 37,000km above ground level somewhere between Sydney and Vancouver.

'm aware that the food world has no shortage of pumpkin cupcake recipes, but I'm sharing this one anyway. It's my favorite because it doesn't err on the "muffiny" side. It is truly a pumpkin cupcake, and I cannot recommend them enough. Make them! Need some convincing?

When we travel, we're usually leaving in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning. No matter what, nerves and time constraints usually make it difficult for us (OK, for me) to eat a solid meal before we get to the airport.

Well, it has been executed. I have made candy corn vodka. I mixed them together in a jar, let it sit for a week, then strained out all these little weird stringy pieces left behind.

I don’t like feeling rushed in the kitchen, which is probably why a lot of my cooking is fairly simple, no four course dining flair on this blog. The sausage cassoulet I made was my most extensive-fly-around-the-kitchen-meal, but making this pizza took the cake … I mean pie.

If you have the time, this is a wonderful weekend dish for entertaining. It takes several hours, and there aren’t any short cuts you can take to cook the meat, but the majority of the time is hands-off and the results are well worth the effort.

Like the delicious butter cake recipe, this beautiful vanilla custard tart is another fine way to enjoy the very best flavour of vanilla.

Yesterday Steve Jobs died. There's a quote from President Obama floating around Twitter right now that remarks about how many people discovered the news of Steve Jobs' death on an Apple product.

I love fresh bread, I grew up with the smell of fresh baked loaves and pastries, but that was a long time ago. When I started baking, I thought making bread is pretty difficult, that’s why my first one was made by a machine. :) But again, that one too happened a long time ago. Since then I learned to make it myself and never looked back.

Those of you who have been around here once or twice before may know of my affinity for homemade condiments. Mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, chutney, barbecue sauce — you name it — it’s all much better out of your mixing bowl than an easy-squeeze bottle.

This post is especially for my friends that have been following my food adventures from the very beginning but have been diagnosed with Celiac disease.

Evening meals with the family are something I really enjoy - but only if i'm prepared for it. A few good, low maintenance menus are essential for the middle of the week. I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for new and interesting, nutritious food for these people, I have to feed them for the next 18 years or so after all (that's a lot of dinners!) Here are a couple that work for us.

A couple of days ago I was browsing food blog, Manu’s Menu, when I spotted her recipe for roast pork with apples and prunes. This got me hungry for a roast dinner so when I spotted some nice lamb legs today at the supermarket, I pounced.

I used to be a huge vegetable person growing up. I thank my mom for this as it was ingrained in my brain that a balanced meal was one that contained some kind of vegetable. When I went to college, I started eating meals that were cheap and fast like macaroni and cheese, Funions - fake fried onions, ramen noodles, baked potatoes with cheese and ranch dressing.

There were a range of emotions as I prepared to cook the 75th and final recipe of my Good Fish project on Labor Day…

Just under the wire, right before figs disappear altogether, we thought we’d bring you one recipe at the end of the season. Figs with gorgonzola is one of the most common combinations I’ve seen lately

I am a boxed brownie girl. Ya I said it. And I am totally not ashamed. I may give you the side eye when you pass me a piece of cake that came out of a box…but brownies? I get it. Any brownie I have ever made from scratch has not tasted any better than the boxed brownies.

Pale green mango, pink petals of torch ginger, glossy red chilis, leafy green mint, purple skin of shallots. A tangled web of colors form Malaysian kerabu salad.

oday is National Guacamole Day! We all know and love guacamole as a party snack, but there's more to guacamole than meets the eye. Guacamole is made from avocados, which are packed with more than twenty vitamins, contain "good fats" that reduce cholesterol, can help fight cancer, and can be used as a substitute for butter or shortening in baking.

I wonder why pear picking doesn’t have the same strong cultural foothold that apple picking does in regions like New England. Pear orchards must exist, otherwise where would our pears come from? As a matter of fact, come to think of it, I’ve seen pear orchards before, and they’re lovely. Just as nice for wandering up and down idyllic rows of leafy trees under a blue sky on a crisp day as are apple orchards.
