August 31, 2015
tangy chewy lemon squares

I am so excited to have a huge kitchen, two lemon trees and a lovely oven at my new house. So excited, in fact, that I have been baking a favourite thing. Lemon squares! When Rin was little, I used to make these all the time. They’re almost whole-heartedly based on a recipe from Stephanie Alexander’s book ‘Stephanie’s Seasons’, but I’ve seen a similar recipe in the Australian Women’s Weekly too – some people might recognise the bones of these from…

I haven’t always called it a jaffle though. Controversial, right?! Like changing football teams. As a kid, our family called…

soup and toast one

This is so yum. Like really. If you are after something new to dip into your Winter soup, you might like to try this Potato and Red Pepper Spread! I feel like it’s influenced by something I might have once eaten at Stephanie’s Restaurant in the late 80s.
