When I lived in Australia, I worked in a corporate office, a short tram ride away from the city and only a 10 minute drive from my apartment.
A girlfriend and I used to go to work together, some mornings lacing up our walking shoes and dragging our weary bodies the 2 miles or so to the office (which felt like 100 miles early in the morning … and we may have occasionally ended our day with a walk through the local drive-thru bottle shop for a 'traveler' on our way home). We often wouldn't have time to even make a coffee before leaving for work so would swing by a small cafe next to our office building for breakfast. Some mornings when we were feeling hung over under the weather, we would grab a bacon and egg sandwich, other mornings I would get a lemon curd muffin. These muffins were to. die. for. Seriously!
Do you ever read through your Facebook news feed and seeing a name or place will remind you of something? It happens often to me. I saw this particular friend's name come up in my feed last week and immediately thought about that little cafe and the muffins. So I made some.

Have you ever done a comparison shop to see how your local store brand stacks up against national brands? The cost is generally significantly less when purchasing store brands, but does the taste measure up?
I created a breakfast bagel comparing First Street products (from Smart & Final) with national brand products and I'm going to share my thoughts on the taste and cost.

These hash brown nests filled with bacon and egg are the perfect addition to breakfast, brunch, or pot luck.
In November I bought a ton of herb plants. I then went to Australia for a month and had forgotten to plant them so the pots sat by my front gate, just within reach of the sprinklers. And then I came home and still forgot to plant them. Every day as I walk up to my front door I would see those pots sitting there and plant after plant was slowly dying and every day I would tell myself that tomorrow I would finally plant what was still left. It's been 5 months since I purchased those pots of herbs. The only thing that was still thriving was the rosemary. I realized I was never going to get around to planting them, so I decided not to let them die like the rest of the herbs and I would freeze what was still there.
Freezing herbs is actually quite simple to do and the perfect way to store leftover herbs that you've purchased. I used to freeze them in water, but then realized I could really only use those in soups or stews. However by freezing them in olive oil, you can throw them straight into the pan for cooking meats, vegetables, or making a stir-fry.

I’m in search of recipes for stews and casseroles.
You see, last week I made a casserole one night for dinner. My teen walked in the door and remarked about how good the smell coming from the house was as he walked up the path, and that it reminded him of visiting his grandma’s house.
Yes, my mum makes a lot of stews, casseroles and Sunday roasts. I need to make them more too.
These stews all sound amazing and would be perfect for a Sunday family dinner.
Do you have any favorite stew recipes to share? I’d love to add them to this collection.
