If the first few days of 2015 are any indication of how the year will progress the next 12 months are so far looking glittery and warm -- filled with equal quantities of vegetables and ice cream, underscored by full on work and much needed play, but a bit hangry and punctuated by laughable (as in I'd laugh if I weren't so hangry) service. On New Years Eve, roughly a half hour before midnight, we landed the best last minute fireworks viewing spot we've had in years. Nothing in front of us … [Read more...]

Watermelon & Roasted Strawberry Popsicles
Another year has come and gone, and once again the speed with which it has passed left me nearly speechless. I probably should have made this into a wrap up post of some kind, a reflection on the year with a positive quote about goals and the future... but while 2014 has been a year of fabulous success and learning and excitement it's also been one of struggle and fear and big decisions and I really don't feel like recounting any of it at the moment! What I do feel like however is … [Read more...]
Carmen! An evening at the Opera on Sydney Harbour
Love, war, obsession, seduction, death. It pretty much covers the various events experienced in any opera, but throw in a bull fight, fireworks and a stage built in the middle of a harbour and all of a sudden a classic opera becomes an event not to be missed. Last Tuesday evening RJ and I had an opportunity to attend the Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour production of Carmen. Despite my living in Sydney for almost a decade and RJ growing up here, neither of us had ever been to an opera … [Read more...]
The best of 2012!
What a year 2012 has been - although I'm not quite sure where its gone, wasn't it March just a few days ago...? Anyway, I just wanted to take a quick moment and thank you for all of your support this past year. Thank you for stopping by and reading, for commenting, for sharing. I never thought when I started this little corner of the Internets that it would turn into such a big part of my life! So first a few of your favourite recipes - based on views, and a few of my favourite recipes - … [Read more...]
Ohh, look, pretty and sparkly
It's only the 3rd of January and there are Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns in the grocery stores already. Easter Eggs. Can we not even get through Valentine's Day first? Come on now, let us breathe! So, as an army of one with seven tonnes of explosives behind me, I'm staging a revolt for at least one day and reverting back to New Years Eve instead of jumping ahead to February or March. Now it's no secret that I love fireworks. They're like a shiny jewelery store window display x1000, but … [Read more...]
A taste of New Years
Just a quick peek into our New Years Eve and New Years Day for you... It started with a New Years Eve Day treat from Gelato Messina. A year of being 90% sugar and dairy free needed to end with this amazing stuff. I could work my way through the entire range in one sitting but instead, RJ and I split a cone of Bounty [Coconut Gelato with Chocolate bits] and Yoghurt & Cherry. After seeing the 9pm fireworks at home [just behind the trees, through the window, almost] we headed down to … [Read more...]
Here is a great reci…oohhh look pretty lights….
So after weeks of driving around or through the city but not stopping, and hearing the snap crackle pop of fireworks on the weekend but not being able to see them we made it to Vivid Sydney for it's last night to ogle the pretty lights. Managed not to have my good camera with me but the little point and shoot did a fairly good job on short notice! Go ahead. Ogle. First up, 3-D projections on Customs House - it filled up with water, crumpled down around us and even took a deep breath … [Read more...]
