In later years, I revelled in the responsibility of keeping the girl guide troop under my care focused and inspired with new and challenging activities. As a manager, I loved to develop my team members through mentoring, encouragement and example, and I continue to have strong relationships with some of those colleagues to this very day.

Sharing my recipe collection to fellow foodies has always been a pure pleasure and it is even more of a buzz when I hear those magic words…’I made your recipe!’.

So here I invite you to browse through and get inspired by my recipes that I have tried and tested over many years. Some have professional photographs, others just have happy snaps and the rest are simply the recipe itself, from my kitchen to yours.

This is my working recipe database and so new recipes are added all the time – be sure to drop by again to see the latest.

Crisp Skin Fish with Capers, Pine Nuts and Garlic Spinach

There are loads of good reasons to eat more fish. Nutritionally, it's a high protein, low fat food rich in omega three that ticks so many boxes as a good food choice. It is really quick to cook when you know how and we are really spoilt for choice for quality fish here in Australia both deep sea and freshwater varieties - we are surrounded by water, after all!

🔥 🔥 🔥 HOT NEWS! Guess who is dropping in to our Cook-Along on Thurs 16th July? The one and only Gabriel Gate! We are going to cook up a fabulous French Style Roast Chicken with Cauliflower Au Gratin and Salade Verte. I can’t wait to cook alongside this industry legend again, as we did […]
