Everyone loves a good Aussie Pavlova or Pav as we affectionately refer to it. Topped with fresh cream and fresh fruit it’s a winner.
Asian noodle salad makes an appearance at our Christmas table every year and goes so well with a baked ham or roast poultry. When cabbage is a part of our organics box for the week I make it mid-year too.
I revisit this recipe every two to three years. It’s creamy, full of flavour and looks so festive. Especially for those celebrating Christmas during Summer, Christmas Ice Cream Pudding is a winner. Variations for a sugar-free alternative are included.
Last year I made a sugar free Gingerbread for a festive option for afternoon tea, but this year I just wasn’t feeling it. Being somewhat of a bliss ball fanatic I played around in the kitchen a little and came up with these. All the taste of Christmas without the refined sugar and extra carbs.
Caramelised onion is a favourite for cheese platters, salads, toasties and a myriad of other things. Homemade Christmas gifts are always a nice surprise, caramelised onion works well given in a cute little jar.

Vanilla Ricotta on Fruit & Nut Sourdough is a go-to breakfast recipe for me when we have people over for breakfast in the warmer months. Simple, fresh and delicious and the ricotta mix can be made ahead- brilliant.
This simple topping for toasted bread sings of lazy summer afternoons. Traditional tomato and basil bruschetta is always a hit at any gathering or works wonderfully as a topping for grilled meat.
A healthy alternative to traditional Christmas rum balls around Christmas time. Perfect with an afternoon cuppa or enjoyed as part of the Christmas festivities. The rum in the recipe makes them not quite paleo, but it’s Christmas time, so who can be that fussy! Enjoy
Adding Spiced pears to a cheese platter will instantly bring a level of elegance and a personal touch. This gorgeous recipe is quick and easy to make but it looks so great you’ll impress yourself. Enjoy over the Christmas season or anytime really.
There is something fun about making a gingerbread house at Christmas time. Creativity in the kitchen brings people together and the result is a gorgeous gingerbread cottage covered in lollies. It will add Christmas cheer to your lounge room until the time comes to eat it.
A good Thai beef massaman curry is the epitome of comfort food. It’s the perfect balance of heat, creamy coconut, a bit of chilli zing and tender slow cooked beef. A perfect curry for all year round.
