spaghetti and meatballs

I posted this photo of my spaghetti and meatballs on Instagram the other day and made everyone hungry. Hah, so humble, me. No really, so many people liked it, but I wonder if they’d still like it if they knew these were healthy baked meatballs with hidden veggies?

mango sago

Every year when summer rolls around, I throw a little party on the inside because with summer comes mango.

ham & cheese pizza puff

I’m stuck at home today because we have tradies over, and my lunch options were looking pretty dismal. I had some sliced ham, some cheese… sadly, no left overs of last night’s delicious beef rending. It looked like I was heading down the glum road towards a ham and cheese sandwich when I was bitten by that little bug, inspiration.
