(Insta)nt gardener cook– What’s been happening!

Found myself looking back at my old blog posts and it gave me motivation to blog again. Life has been so busy and looking back at my life prior to marriage; made me miss documenting food and MELBOURNE. Sorry Sydney... but Melbourne is perfection especially in the food scene. And of course miss home and family. But I am so gratefully for starting this blog, so many food memories!!! And many recipes I can look up when I miss home!!!

Something I recently got into was gardening! Yes, took me long enough to start but I felt the time was right.
Started my own little herb garden.
Being away from my home and parents, gardening is the perfect outlet for me to unwind and reminisce those wonderful times spent in our backyard.

Let’s see if I can keep my promise and post like good old times before life gets chaotic again! 



Take care!

Found a penny...






Rolling Penny
583A King Street, Newtown
Sydney, NSW

 This place is a true gem within Newtown. My husband and myself were pleasantly surprised. The menu was straight forward; taking old school dishes and adding that modern twist, But it was tolerable. I am not huge on overly fancy food especially if it's not going to fill me up! Simple yet super tasty is perfect for me. Wished I captured my husbands reaction when he took his first bite of his meal. After a long time he was so happy with what he ordered! Also we both couldn't stop humming along to the awesome playlist.

 In short it is worth checking this place out... It definitely took me back to Melbourne.



(will update this post with more photos when we go there again for sure!)

BACON, CELERY & CHEESE BAKE

I turned this savoury  muffin recipe into a bake because I didn't have a muffin tray around. Also replaced the bacon with chipolatas. Always fun to try different ingredients and of course you could make this vegetarian and add left over roast vegetables. Whatever you prefer/or have in your fridge or pantry.

Sorry for the hideous photo... hubs just destroyed my creation before I got the chance to take a photo...

Take care,

Sydney Food Adventures - Feb '17


The Coffee Club,
Royal Randwick Shopping Centre, 
K11/73 Belmore Rd,
 Randwick NSW 2031

 This was my go to cafe when I was pregnant. After my appointments I would come here and enjoy a tea and a preg safe meal (usually ordered an omelette or scramble eggs) whilst my husband finished his gym.  


Dukes Lounge, 
153 Avoca St, 
Randwick NSW 2031

        Asides being stingy on the toast, this place is another decent place around busy Randwick. 


Molly Coddle Cafe,
3/612-622 King St, 
Newtown NSW 2042


Awesome Breakfast and lunch menu and they serve Filipino dishes aswell. Awesome range of dishes and great coffee and lovely selection of juices. The way the cafe is designed, an awesome breeze comes through, 
perfect on those warmer days. Very nice service.


Rolling Penny, 
 Newtown, 583A King St, Sydney NSW 2042

THIS PLACE IS OUR CURRENT TOP FAVOURITE!!! Shall do a separate post on this gem of a cafe.
Sigh.

Sydney food adventures Jan '17

Chill Sunday - Dinner at Corelli's, Newtown. 
Correlli's
352 King Street, Newtown
Sydney

If you want a cup of coffee or some cafe food past the usual annoying cafe closing times (hate how early cafes close here) then this place is a go to! Open everyday 7 AM -12 AM!! Finally a place I can go with my little family for a late meal and or coffee! Decent place.

Our Sunday Newtown ritual. 

Recently we got back to doing our Sunday lunch dates (we began doing this early January last year when I was pregnant) or atleast get out of the house and do some exploring for an hr or 2 without the baby. It's a great time for me to recharge. As much as I love my little owl, it is nice and important to have a little break here and there. Grabbed a green juice from 'Molly Coddle' Cafe in Newtown whilst hubs got coffees. Fun fact: Newtown was the location of Coldplay's 'Sky Full of Stars' music video. Yes. Envy all the people who got to see them and be featured in their video!!!

Take care,




2017 - Fresh New Platter

First meal of 2k17!


Yes, I am fully aware it's March. But it's never too late to start. 2016 was a huuuge year for me and my family. A new family member came into the world hehe. And towards the end of the year we moved. I truly missed posting food photos and sharing recipes with you! One of many goals; get back on this blog and post at least once a week!
