vegan Mexican soup

Readers will know of my love of cold weather and all things that accompany winter, especially the food side of things. Soup, for instance, is one of my fav foods and I tend to eat it year round. Summer in Sydney is not soup weather by any stretch but when the soup craving comes you gotta obey your tummy. Luckily for me it is winter here and cold – perfect soup weather. Continue reading

Easter egg mini cupcake recipe by The Hungry Mum.jpg

I think I enjoy Easter more than Christmas. Come December 25 everyone is racing around like a headless chook, and the stress is palpable.

From a baking perspective – which is my usual perspective as I am always baking – standing in front of an oven for hours on end in 35 C heat is simply awful.

But by Easter the weather has cooled and baking is more pleasant. Continue reading
