Purchasing all the new textbooks you need for those three pages of notes your lecturer insists you need can be bank-breaking, but dinner for the flat doesn’t have to be. This recipe is a bit of a “kitchen-sink” sort of deal—anything can be substituted depending on what you’ve got in the fridge. I’ve written it […]

I think it’s actually been over a year since I was last in Karori—there just hasn’t been any reason to go there. So when the man suggested an Indian restaurant in Karori I thought, “can’t we just go somewhere in town?” We were, after all, already in town. But apparently not. He said to trust […]

The cool thing about this recipe (apart from how good it tastes) is that you can flavour it by your choice in chocolate. Most recently I used the Whittaker’s Dark Almond chocolate block and it was soooo good, but really most chocolates would work. I made this for my boyfriend one night because chocolate mousse […]

Okay, getting a little fancy this week. It’s an intimidating dish, especially if you’ve ever watched Hell’s Kitchen, but don’t panic. Find someone you want to impress (or a few of them, this recipe is enough to serve four rather hungry people at least), and make this for them. You’re going to look awesome when […]

Why study when you can make these and then eat them instead? Don’t worry guys, I’m here to save you from your assignments—with chocolate chip cookie dough brownies. These come in two layers: the bottom is a deliciously soft chocolate brownie and then you go ahead and whack a layer of cookie dough on top […]

I love slow cookers. They’re like magicians, turning cheap, tough cuts of meat into the most tender, flavoursome meals while you’re at uni or work for the day. Come home, and BAM. Dinner’s done. This recipe is great on your night to cook for the flat. It makes enough to feed the tribe and isn’t […]

I compete in the NZIFBB bodybuilding competitions and as of a week ago I’m back into prep-mode for the Wellington Champs in September, which means I’m back into diet-mode. Yaaaaaaaaaay. Who can’t get excited about eating chicken and broccoli multiple times a day and giving up most ways of adding flavour to food for nearly […]

I had high hopes for this place after checking the menu out online. It seemed like a mid-to-high-end sort of establishment, offering a range of steaks on the Lunch/Dinner menu that were priced anywhere up to $70. I mean, you sort of start to take a restaurant seriously once they can justify charging you that […]

I’ve told lots of my friends about this recipe, and they’ve all had the same initial reaction—to look at me like I’m nuts and then say, “really? Cauliflower?” Yes, cauliflower. Instead of a traditional flour base, cauliflower is a low-carb, gluten-free, high fibre alternative that basically means you can eat more pizza, and who doesn’t […]
