Review – Lucio Pizzeria Darlinghurst

We visit Lucio Pizzeria Darlinghurst to celebrate a big birthday and sink our teeth into Australia’s best Neapolitan pizza. Everybody knows that pizza is life.

Trawlers at Brooklyn, Hawkesbury River

Hawkesbury cruising on The Riverboat Postman

Brooklyn and the Hawkesbury hold a special place in my family history. Not only did my great grandparents run the local fish and chip shop in the 1950s and 1960s, but my late mother and father lived here when they were first married. On a misty Monday morning, Sugarpuff and I set off on a […] Read more…

Yorkshire Fat Rascals Recipe

Yorkshire Fat Rascals Recipe

Yorkshire! It’s England’s biggest county and as famous for its stunning moors and dales as it is for The Brontë Sisters, Yorkshire puddings and a good brew. The best of course is Yorkshire Tea, or more specifically (at least in my opinion) Yorkshire Gold Blend, an award-winning blend of tea leaves from Kenya and Rwanda […] Read more…

Family fun Shipwreck Island at NRMA South West Rocks Holiday Resort

Family time at NRMA South West Rocks Holiday Resort

Sure, we expected sun, sand and sea but we didn’t expect pirates! Two of them, as fierce as can be, lurching around a shipwrecked galleon, battling the twisting tentacles of a kraken and the blasts of water cannons.

Mischief and magic at Oberon’s Mayfield Garden with kids

On the road to Mayfield Garden, skittish spring lambs bounce across undulating hills blanketed in yellow canola blooms. Flower-laden acacia trees, their leaves sagging under the weight of wattle flowers, punctuate the road side in golden sorority.  Adding a touch of flamboyance to the vibrant scene, flame-hued bottlebrush direct us into a moody forest of gnarled […] Read more…

Sri Lankan Egg hoppers

A Sri Lankan-style breakfast is amongst the greatest meals this asbestos-tongued foodie has had the pleasure of meeting and eating. And, in my opinion, the undisputed stars of this Sri Lankan morning show are Sri Lankan egg hoppers.
