Winter Health Boosting Salad with Sage and Oregano

After the naughty but decadent recipe I shared with you last week I thought a healthy recipe was in store for this week. It’s week one in my schedule of blog posts which means book review week and while this warm winter salad doesn’t feature in any particular book (my own creation) I feel I was inspired by Hetty Mckinnon’s book Family. It is not a vegan cook book but well worth a mention.

How often do you buy a cook book, have a good flick through, salivate at the pictures then put it on the bookshelf never to it open again? There are so many cookbooks that I do this with and I have promised myself that I will choose one a year and go through them and make every recipe I like the look of.

One Pot Camping Meals (Take Two)

I just found the book I wrote camp recipes in when we were road tripping in November and December last year and realised that I still have some beauties to share with you. The recipes are so easy for camping as they all only need one saucepan or wok to cook them in. Which also makes them great for one pot meals in the home.

Grilled Nectarine, Broccoli and Almond Fetta Salad

The organic stone fruit we are getting in our area at the moment is not so tasty. We had such a good year last year that this year pales in comparison. Still wanting to make the most of the stone fruit that keeps appearing in our local Santos Health Food Shop I decided to grill the nectarines in this very simple salad.

The Perfect Salad

In 2013 I was asked to cater for the wedding of Sarah and Jo. All the weddings that I have catered are memorable and I feel grateful for the opportunity to have been part of their special day. Sarah and Jo’s wedding I remember so well as I was amazed at how relaxed and surrendered they were about the catering.
