Let’s be real, I have totally abandoned any pretext of this being a recipe blog. I love cooking and eating and chatting food with friends but I’ve realized that I cook almost entirely by instinct. I rarely follow recipes, a quality that does not stand me in particularly good stead to be a food blogger. So, from herein out, I guess this makes this site an online journal of sorts? I’m not sure, but whatever it is I’m going to keep popping in occasionally.
It’s almost 12 months since I left Sydney and my life doesn’t look at all like I thought it would when I jumped on a plane for New York. I imagined I’d be dying to get back as soon as my program ended. Instead, New York has become one of my favourite places on earth and I’m so happy to be here. Having said that, I’m in the midst of packing up for a couple of months. I’m moving to Jordan to work for a short while, before returning to New York in the fall for a final stint before moving back to Australia for at least 12 months. I’m not sure when I became one of those people who agrees to move across the world without pausing for even a moment, but I think (hope!) it’s going to be a great adventure.
Until I leave for Jordan next month, I’m living large in New York and attempting to eat my way through as many places as possible (recent haunts include Superiority Burger, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, Emmy Squared (one of my favourite places in the city, it’s so flippin’ good!), Four and Twenty Blackbirds, the Museum of Food and Drink and Dimes). Any other suggestions, send them my way!
Marian Bull is one of my favourite food writers ever (subscribe to her hilarious and totally down to earth newsletter. It’s the shit). Her article on mug cakes is amazing.
These jokes about New York are SO true.
Almond butter chocolate chip cookies.
One of the great joys about going back to school has been the freedom to set my own schedule every day. I’ve got into the groove of running three days a week and going to three or four yoga classes. I’ve never felt better and I seriously hope that I’ll be able to keep this up when I go back to full time work next year. This is a great piece about the mind-clearing magic of running.
Totally obsessed with Reformation right now.
I have been pouring this dressing over everything lately. So easy and so good.
Love Masha.Moon jewellery.
I hope I leave behind a library like this one day.
I love Julia Stiles.
Ted talks have been getting some hate recently but Bene Brown is fantastic and this is a great talk about the power of vulnerability.
