Lavender Lemonade

Is it too late to wish you all a Happy New Year?!


In any case, let us kick aside the tumbleweeds that have inhabited this space and make something nice and simple to ease us into 2014.

The first time I made lavender lemonade was for the Sydney Food Bloggers Christmas Picnic. I was feeling rushed and disorganised, not to mention a little under pressure to make something decent to contribute to a mass of food bloggers!

Out of sheer desperation and the fact that I had a big ‘ol bag of lemons from the tree where my parents live(that fruits all year round), lemonade made sense. I used dried, food-grade lavender in this batch, as well as a fistful of mint from out the back, and topped it up with soda water.

Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Mulberries Poached in Red Vermouth and Honey.

I have a question: do kids today still keep silkworms as pets?

I remember my first batch as if it were yesterday.

For one dollar, I received twelve delicate white grubs, a bag of mulberry leaves for them to munch on, and a shoebox with holes poked in the top – for shelter and ease of transport. 
Bargain.

Mudgee Part 2: Whole Orange and Duck Egg Cake

Hi everyone! I am poking my head out from under the mountain of assignments that are crushing my social and blogging life to bring you a continuation of my trip to Mudgee.  This one promises to be a goodie...Why? Because we have ducks.
The mere sight of these creatures makes my heart sing. To me, they are hilarious to watch and I wish could have taken one of them home with me.
I like to imagine them wearing tiny cowboy hats. 
In my opinion these ducks need names. Creatures that could potentially wear a tiny cowboy hats definitely need to have names. I need to set aside my assignments and do some brainstorming on this.
