At the time of writing this week’s blog, I can only dream of some delightful choux pastry made into eclairs and profiteroles. You see, my house looks like a bomb’s gone off. About 3 months ago we thought we’d do a touch of renovating, so we booked in a plasterer. Well, time went much quicker […]
When we’re already facing temperatures well above 40˚C/104˚F, hot ovens and heavy meals are just too much, and that’s when our Christmas dinner takes on a distinctly Australian /Kiwi style.

At the beach, the cricket or footy, as […]
