Smoked Trout Frittata

Full of protein, packed with vegetables this is one tasty treat that you can have for breakfast, lunch or dinner! 

For some great information on the health benefits of smoked fish there's a fantastic, easy to read article on Livestrong.  

This was also a great dish to put the veggie garden to good use, the tomatoes onion, spinach, zucchini and dill all came straight from the veggie patch in the backyard!

Embracing the Green and Gold on Australia Day

Australia Day for me is about celebrating the amazing and diverse country we live in.  But it's also a day for having some fun, spending some time with mates, listening to Triple J's Hottest 100 and watching the Adelaide test.  

This Australia Day I decided to have a bit of fun with some food and created my own version of fish and salad that celebrates our sporting colours, green and gold!  

Granddad's Rhubarb

The gorgeous ruby red rhubarb that is growing in my garden isn't just a plant. It's part of my family history.  This plant is now in its third generation, passed down from my Granddad, to my Dad and now to me. It's taken some time to establish, and yes - I was very nervous when it seemed like it wasn't growing and was looking a little sad.  I didn't want to be the one that killed the rhubarb that had been growing since the 1950s!  To sense the importance of this plant, I wasn't allowed to have a cutting until I stopped renting and bought a house!
