NUT FREE “SATAY” NOODLES

To my fellow allergy adults, have you ever wondered what satay or pad thai might taste like? Yeah same. So I made this sunflower butter “satay” variation and tested it on my allergy free family and friends. The general consensus was that the taste is “very similar” to the real deal… I mean I’m not […]

SONS OF MISCHIEF

A new local favourite of mine! As the name suggests, sons of mischief has a fun menu and atmosphere with a large neon sign quoting “Don’t tell me what to do unless you’re naked” setting a playful tone. I was first introduced to this cafe by attending their bottomless brunch with a group of friends […]

YOU KNOW PHO

I have eaten my fair share of pho. It’s the one dish that I can rely on if I’m eating out and get presented with a nut heavy Asian menu. Whilst it keeps me away from a potential nut allergy, the broth generally contains onion with additional onion slices in the bowl, which is not […]

MOBY

I’d heard good things about this place so I had to check it out for myself. Safe to say I was one happy and very full customer when I left! Moby has three stories and if you can score a table on the rooftop you’ll be there all day. Really nice atmosphere and interesting menu! […]

THE ULTIMATE ANTIPASTO

I would eat an antipasto platter in place of a main meal, any day of the week! You can mix and match so many delicious flavours and have a lot of fun creating it all. Unfortunately I have had to forfeit some of my fave cured meats like salami and marinated olives as they almost […]

NUT-FREE BASIL PESTO

Traditional pesto is one of those things that I know I would really enjoy but it always has some form of nuts in it. Every time I have accidentally eaten it, I’ve almost felt the reaction was worth it! (not really). Anyway I had a play around with nut-free alternative for you guys and I […]

TWENTY FIVE

Last month I hit the quarter century! Celebrating my 25th with my friends at home was one of my best birthdays yet.  The guest list consisted of 15 of my closest sistas so it seemed right to go a little extra with my theme and menu! What started as a garden picnic in my backyard […]

VACAY IN BYRON BAY

Okay, so I finally got around to writing this post about my unreal getaway to Byron Bay in July! Hoping to escape the horrible Melbourne winter, my boyfriend and I headed to sunny Byron for 8 days.  Happy to say we got the beautiful weather we ordered! Just warm enough to chuck on our bathers […]

BALCONY BAR AND OYSTER CO.

Prime location on a corner in the main strip of Jonson street, this place kept pulling us back in! I just loved the variety of their menu and the low-key seating options. We both found something to eat with ease and the live music really added to the atmosphere. Every time we headed to the […]

THE TOP SHOP

My favourite day in our Byron trip was the day we stopped into the top shop for some fuel and headed to the lighthouse walk. The bright little cafe on top of a hill is the perfect hangout for a lazy sunday morning. All you need to do is pull up one of their picnic […]

MISS MARGARITA

Opposite the busy Beach Hotel, this has to be one of the best Mexican restaurants I have eaten at. Beautiful authentic artwork and decor, accompanied with a vibrant and flavoursome menu it was very easy to wander up from the beach and settle in for the afternoon. From lunch time each day this spot is […]

LIGHT YEARS

Super cool Vietnamese restaurant we stumbled across. The killer RnB playlist is what pulled us in and sitting on the little pink patio styled with lots of greenery and hanging plants set the tone for a fun evening. Street style food and a refreshing asian twist on the cocktail list with flavours such as lychee, […]

BAYLEAF CAFE

I’m going to say it, this spot topped our Byron cafe list! We were welcomed with a big smile from staff and a cute, old local dog wandering around cafe…the perfect start to the day. The warm weather meant the outdoor tables were consistently full so we had to go communal and get cosy with […]

BYRON FRESH CAFE

Byron Fresh is another cafe right in the heart of Jonson Street. It has a cool double level set up with windows that open onto the street making it a casual spot to pop in on your way down to the water for a drink or a meal. Menu options are all super healthy with […]

FRANK’S

Tucked away in the suburbs, this has to be one of my favourite little coffee spots. You can count on some friendly banter from the staff and you never have to wait long to get a table. The food is consistently good and the coffee is even better, making it my go-to brunch place with […]

GREEK LAMB WITH TZATZIKI

After visiting Greece two years ago, my love affair with this country and it’s amazing food begun! I was reminiscing the other day and decided to make a youknowchlo version of the classic Greek lamb wrap. Who cares about garlic and onion, you can still pack so much flavour into Greek food with herbs, fresh […]

ZESTY OREGANO DRESSING

This is my absolute go-to dressing. Super easy, super tangy and works with pretty much any salad combination! You can make it in a big batch and pop it in a jar in the fridge or you can get yourself some mini dressing containers and portion it out per serve for when you’re racing out […]
