Prawn & Chicken Thai Salad

Prawn & Chicken Thai Salad

I like to think of this salad as Surf n’ Turf Asian style.  If you don’t make the salad, try the dressing.  It’ll keep for days in an airtight jar in the fridge and can be used with a variety of dishes. I’ve stopped watching the news.  There is too much sadness. Instead I’ve taken to...
Coffee Meringue Kisses for Dad

Coffee Meringue Kisses for Dad

Every Mother’s Day my husband asks me what I’d like to do. For 13 years my response has been the same. “24 hours in a hotel room by myself please.” I’m yet to receive this wish and doubt I ever will because Mother’s Day is all about the kids isn’t it? Every Father’s Day I...

The Bee’s Knees

At my table...

At my table…

When I was growing up, I knew that every Sunday at 1.00pm I was expected at my mother’s table. She would cook lunch for whoever came. On average that meant around 20 people. It was chaotic; with people jostling over one another to be heard, to be served, to be first to rifle through the...
