I saw this quote today on a food blog ‘Even if you can’t travel, you can breakfast’ – Emily Vikre, Food 52
I’m obviously ridiculously jealous of my sister Bella as she is on her second – yes second! – European holiday for this year. I’m following her travels on social media and she just landed in Istanbul, Turkey. Its just one of the many places I’m dying to visit myself so I’m sure ill get loads of good tips from her upon her return.

What a fantastic slow cooked, heart-warming, soulful winter dish! Pie making is often described as an art, but it’s actually really easy.
It’s a dish that must always contain a lot of love, so make sure you prepare this for your friends and family!
Essentially, this is 2 recipes in one. A great pot roasted lamb with home made gravy is simply made in steps 1+2+4. Or, you can make a pie using leftover roast meats in step 3-10.
We’ve used a fantastic quality award winning leg of lamb, . . . → Read More: Bella’s Slow cooked Lamb and Parsnip Pie with Sour Cream Pastry, as seen on Sunrise
Today we celebrate Anzac Day with a recipe inspired by some of the traditional symbols of Anzac Day – Rosemary and Poppy. We also pay tribute to the Aussies who remained at home, whose ration packs with home baked goods (such as Anzac Biscuits) were sent all the way to the battle fields. And we pay respect to the heart felt messages of love and support, delivered via these baked goods.
The poppy is a powerful symbol for remembrance day on 11th November, it represents the blood shed by . . . → Read More: Bella’s Anzac Day Rosemary and Poppy Seed Shortbread

Bacon, Bacon, bacon, its said to be the one food that could turn a vegetarian. Its also the one ingredient that can be added to almost anything and it will make it taste great! We like to use Primo, which is widely available, and uses only the finest ingredients. Their bacon range includes short cut, middle bacon, and our favourite specialty, Beechwood smoked bacon. Primo smallgoods is also Australia’s largest bacon, ham and smallgoods producer in Australia.
So enough talk more bacon! We gave ourselves a challenge . . . → Read More: Sammy’s Bacon Brussel Sprouts, as seen on Sunrise
So we’ve all heard about salted caramel, but the newest hipster food trend to hit our shores mixes a new type of salty and sweet – this time, it’s all about BACON!
The Americans have been eating bacon with maple syrup and pancakes for ages, and the trend is definitely starting to take over the Aussie food scene. We’re seeing bacon jam, chocolate with bacon, and even candied bacon pop up.
For some, this combo might sound strange, but I promise, it’s heavenly! If you’re a fan of . . . → Read More: Bella’s Bacon and Salted Peanut Brittle, as seen on Sunrise
Wow, this MKR is full of drama at the moment isn’t it?! Chloe & Kelly get inspired by michellin starred cuisine with their poached chicken in mushroom broth… this dish has loads of home-style potential and we’ve recreated it with some simple ingredients, all available at your local supermarket.
The girls used chicken breasts and skin (we see it’s Lilydale free range, it makes us happy to see MKR is supporting happy healthy chooks!) for their dish, but in our recipe we’re using the whole bird. We’re pulling . . . → Read More: Bella’s poached chicken in shitake broth with enoki, as seen on Sunrise
Last weeks chicken challenge on MKR was tough! It seems like the judging came down to how well the chicken itself was cooked. Mick and Matt struggled to make their chicken shine as the hero of the dish, while Angela and Melina’s chicken was dry. We really feel for the girls, as chicken breast is notorious for drying out and it can be a tough challenge to get it right (unless you follow our top tips of course!)
The first step to a great chicken dish has to . . . → Read More: Recipe: Pancetta Wrapped Chicken with Watercress Pesto, as seen on Sunrise

We love greek salad, it’s so fresh and always a hit at picnics, bbq’s and every day family meals. We wanted something fresh to go with lamb on Australia day, but we’ve eaten it a squillion times. So we developed a new summer salad based on the delicious flavours this classic… our almost greek salad.
It’s great for kids, because the flavours are quite mild, and it pretty much goes with every mediterranean or middle eastern meal.
We’ve been working like maniacs for the last 2 months so we . . . → Read More: Recipe: Almost Greek Salad, and top tips for BBQ lamb, as seen on Sunrise
