Food is art too.  Do you agree?  I think everything about your life, the things you create, what you wear and what you eat are part of your life art.  Here are just a few of my favourite recipes.  I like to show love through the food I make x

Baked Oatmeal

My sister Karla sent me this recipe and I now make it all the time.  Breakfast is my favourite meal.  This is baked oatmeal, but really it is like healthy breakfast cake...so good served warm with greek yoghurt!  I shared the recipe in this blog post if you're interested...who doesn't want to start the day with cake?! :)

Paprika-meatball and borlotti bean soup

I have been making this soup for years and it is always a great one for using up those veggies in the fridge.  I started by using this wonderful recipe from Taste.com.au, but have adapted it over time.  I now use Quorn mince instead of making meatballs and use veggie stock as most of my family are vegetarian.  You can find the full recipe here
