Easy San Choy Bau

Easy San Choy Bau

Come Saturday I am SO over cooking.  It’s the one day of the week I wish that a fairy would appear in my kitchen and take over. Yeah, like that’s ever going to happen. Instead, I pour myself a large gin and tonic and hunt for some cooking mojo. More often than not, said mojo is to...

The gift of mangoes and merriment….

My son, (he of extraordinary olfactory ability), announced yesterday that summer was here. He’d got a whiff of Star Jasmine on the way home and found me chopping mangoes as he arrived in the kitchen. “That’s summer Mama, right there on that plate” he exclaimed. And whilst we’ve still got just under a month until...
Give me my daily bread thanks...

Give me my daily bread thanks…

Do your kids like bread? Mine do, but it has to be white, or at a push wholemeal. Introduce additional grains or seeds and they run a mile. This is especially the case when I make them sandwiches. Given they are adventurous eaters with everything else, this has always perplexed me. But then it occurred to...
Scottish hunks, an iPad mini and tricky questions

Scottish hunks, an iPad mini and tricky questions

Want to win an iPad mini? Then read on… My family and I have recently been watching Outlander. It’s about a woman happily living in the 1940s who is unwittingly flung back in time and finds herself amongst the Mackenzie clan in Scotland in the 18th century.  She has to readjust to this time immediately or risk...
Sensory overload...

Sensory overload…

The outdoors is jam-packed with amazing and diverse smells. From the delicious and delicate to the downright disgusting, there’s something for everyone. I encourage you to head outdoors and take a whiff. That, or head to the flower markets. When I was young, my mother used to drag me out of bed at a ridiculously...
Are you wearing yours?

Are you wearing yours?

I love social media. Because sometimes people meet there and then, in real life, over a few glasses of Villa Santa Maria, can collaborate and do good things. So it is that Mrs Woog of Woogsworld and I are wearing very loud, gawdy yet totally on-fashion shirts today. Why? Because we are both huge supporters of The...

Dirty, but delighted…

Every now and then I give a little anticipatory shiver, followed by the realization that it’s the little things in life that make me do so. It always takes me by surprise. They are transitory moments and fill me with intense happiness and contentment. It might be the sound of magpies squabbling, the smell of the season’s...
Free falling in Sydney...

Free falling in Sydney…

“Never in a million years,” I said to the lovely PR girl from Sydney’s iFly when she contacted me recently. “You will never get me into a wind tunnel that mimics the sensation of jumping from a plane, but thanks for asking; it’s very sweet of you.” There are two things I will never do...

Emma Watson, footy WAGS and dross

I will NEVER again watch the news on commercial television. Its culinary equivalent are those horrible dry crackers that stick to the top of your mouth leaving you half choked, bloated, vaguely repulsed and disappointed in yourself for having eaten them in the first place. There is zero imagination, intuitive reporting, diversity or breadth anywhere to be found across the...
Sunburn, smells and a Ford EcoSport Titanium

Sunburn, smells and a Ford EcoSport Titanium

Not long after turning 18 I bought my first car. She was a bright blue Ford Laser with shiny Victorian number plates and cost me (for an 18 year old) the huge sum of $8000. At first I was too scared to drive her. She was brand spanking new and so very beautiful and I...
Spotlight on Lavender Bay 2060

Spotlight on Lavender Bay 2060

  Lavender Bay is a funky little suburb tucked in under the north western side of Sydney’s iconic Harbour Bridge.  It’s bounded by Milsons Point and McMahons Point which has a thriving cafe, restaurant and bookshop scene. It’s a short (but steep) 10 minute walk up the road to the business hub of North Sydney. Walking tracks...
