I’ve always wanted to know what meatloaf actually was and what it tasted like. Turns out that it’s pretty much like a beef patty but in loaf form.

Alterations that I made were:

  • adding two cloves of chopped garlic, a decent amount of tabasco sauce and a handful of chopped coriander (I love coriander!)
  • omitting the BBQ sauce


It was something different but nothing incredibly amazing.

Japanese curry




  • any meat of your choice (cut into large chunks)
  • 1 large onion (roughly chopped)
  • 2 large potatoes (cut into large chunks)
  • 3 carrots (cut into large chunks)
  • 1 capsicum (or any other vegetable you have on hand, chopped)
  • 3 cups of water
  • 100g of Golden Curry sauce mix
  • soy sauce


1. Heat pan with oil, fry the onion until it becomes clear, add your meat

2. Once the meat is cooked, add the vegetables and water, bring to a boil.

3. Reduce the heat, cover the pan and simmer for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.

4. Add the Golden Curry sauce mix and stir continuously until it dissolves.

5. Add a dash of soy sauce for more flavour.

6. Take off the heat and serve with rice.



Simple, tasty, perfect for a weekday meal. (Note that the “Hot” Golden Curry sauce mix is NOT hot at all)

Spaghetti and meatballs


Recipe from



For my first ever attempt at making meatballs, I thought the results were pretty darn fantastic! The alterations I made to the recipe were:

  • using both pork and beef mince (to give the meatballs more moisture)
  • adding grated carrot, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and chilli (chilli makes everything taste better)
  • substituting the basil with coriander (didn’t have any basil in the house)
  • baking the meatballs instead of pan frying them (less effort and is more healthy)

Very easy and very tasty. I will definitely be making these again soon!

Baked Pesto Salmon



  • Salmon fillets (boneless, skin on)
  • Pesto
  • Breadcrumbs

1. Preheat oven to 200°C and line a baking dish with baking paper.

2. Place salmon (skin side down) onto the baking paper. Spread on pesto and sprinkle on breadcrumbs.

3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes (depending on thickness of fish) until it is cooked through. Serve with a salad.



Simple, easy, tasty!

Quick and easy. The more chilli you add, the better!

White Chocolate Mud Cake


Ok first of all, please ignore my crappy icing. I was trying to do something fancy, but that ending up failing so i scraped everything off and hid my failure with icing sugar.



  • So I found this recipe from Exclusively Food
  • Changes I made to the recipe: decreasing the amount of white chocolate to 270g and the sugar to 1/2 a cup (this still resulted in a very sweet cake)
  • Once the mixture is poured into a baking pan, make sure you drop the pan from 10cm or so onto a counter LOTS of times to get rid all the air bubbles before baking



A quick and easy recipe that results in a delicious mud cake that will leave you wanting another slice…and another slice
