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.

Pancakes are one of the worlds favourite breakfasts. What makes them so special is that almost every cuisine has their own version. Ricotta pancakes are believed to have originated in Italy but now it seems that most European countries will have their own version of ricotta pancakes.

Sammy’s Jamming Season!!
Summer is over and Autumn is in full swing, so now is the time that we are seeing the last of summers fruits in our super markets, which it therefore means its perfect time for jamming. Jamming is a method of food preservation that has become an extremely popular past time for those of looking to reconnect with their granny’s roots.
Sugar is the main preservative and unfortunately there isn’t really anyway around it. But if you’re like me and prefer to eat very little, to . . . → Read More: Sammy’s Jamming Session, as seen on The Morning Show

If you thought your nanna made the best scones… then you might just have to give her a run for her money with this recipe!
The Country Women’s Association has long been the toughest judge when it comes to scones. They should be light and fluffy, rather than dense and stodgy, and have a light crusty top. For this, make sure you:

The traditional Italian breakfast is very different from what we’re used to in Australia. Brekky is always sweet, and always accompanied by a cappuccino! Across Italy, the cornetto (essentially, a croissant) is most popular, but today we’re cooking a regional specialty from the island of Sardinia.
Seadas (or sebadas) are a fried pasta, filled with fresh young unripened sheeps milk cheese and drizzled with local honey. These local treasures are eaten at any time of the day, including breakfast!

Coming from a Polish background I know how popular apples are so it’s no wonder that there are so many polish dishes with apple in them. Growing up there was nothing I loved more than my mothers Apple pancakes. When I’m feeling a little homesick it’s the first thing I’ll cook to cheer me up.
Over the past few years I’ve adapted my mothers recipe, by adding another typically Polish ingredient, poppy seeds. Then I finish it off some stewed rhubarb which is in season over winter.

The world cup begins very soon and many of us will have a few early mornings waking up to watch the football matches before work or school. To celebrate the host country and also fill our tummies in the early hours of the morning I’m going to share my favourite recipe for a Brazilian Acai berry bowl.
