Never turn your back on a Hungry Man – How my salmon got stolen

So, this post was going to be about a really easy and delicious salmon recipe but I thought I needed to do a community service and warn the Ladies of a potential threat in your homes: The Hungry Man. It is well known in my household that I’m a blogger, which means that most of the time, ANY food I make is a potential blog post.

Being the thrifty person I am, I decided that it was high time I learnt how to roast a chook and save myself several dollars while I’m at it. I researched for a while before before coming across a suitable recipe because I wanted to be sure that The Cooking Chook was going to cook a really nice chook. Read more…

Must make lemon tart

About two weeks ago, I went to a wonderful Italian restaurant in Adelaide, called Chianti, for my partner’s mother’s birthday. For dessert, my partner and I decided it would be a good idea to share a dessert considering we had eaten a copious amount of food.  We agreed upon a lemon tart that had a chocolate base and it was so fabulously delicious that I thought to myself “I must make this tart!”.
