Orange, Honey & Walnut Spice Cake – A-Cake-a-Week

28/02/2014 | By

Here’s the thing. I’ve just discovered a serious flaw in my cake-a-week plans. Not that I can’t get around to baking once a week, or that the troops let me down with the consumption of a cake a week – no, we’re all good there! My problem is blogging time. I’ve realised that if I blog once a week about cake it cuts into the time I have to blog about other food – and there is so much food to talk about!

The Cake-a-Week – Upsidedown Fig and Ginger Cake

07/02/2014 | By

Offering number 2 in my cake-a-week challenge moves away from my default position of chocolate – a delicious Upsidedown Fig and Ginger Cake.

I’m not sure if having made two cakes in two weeks constitutes being on a roll, but I’m feeling very confident about this whole cake-a-week thing. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that cake is actually one of my favourite food groups, but I also think I deserve brownie points for having baked in the hottest month of the year here in Adelaide.

Fig and Fennel Roll

Fig & Fennel Roll

Things are becoming just the tiniest bit hectic around here at the end of this week. On Sunday we leave for a family holiday with all of our children and the amount of organisation required to sort out the farm, the garden, the pets, the flights, transfers and accommodation as well as the separate travel arrangements for our older two kids is mind-boggling. And exhausting.

Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula – How Did I Miss This?

25/11/2013 | By

Sunny Ridge Farm, Mornington Peninsula

I’m a frequent visitor to Melbourne. I used to live there and enjoy catching up with old friends when I can, all of whom live north of the river, so my trips south of the Yarra are infrequent. All that changed a few weeks back when I spent a few days on the Mornington Peninsula – leaving me wondering why I didn’t know about this glorious food basket. While the food scene in Melbourne is wonderful, it is well worth the short drive down the expressway to the lush, rolling paddocks and orchards and breathtaking coastline of this region. They have a wealth of goodies there to tempt you.
