How can we be at Week 4 of the Alternate Day Fasting Diet already and still I’m not being mistaken for Angelina Jolie? Must have lost too much weight off the lips. Fortunately some has come off the hips too, around half a kilo this […]
Week 3 of the Alternate Day Fasting Diet down and I could almost get used to this (says she from the comfortable complacency of a feast day). Despite a massive mid-week blow-out Mexican style (which thankfully coincided with a feast day) I’ve still lost another […]
It’s been a long time since I ate at a Mexican restaurant, so when I received an invitation to join a group of food bloggers and media types at a dinner at Maiz and Mezcal, a local Adelaide restaurant, I was keen to try out some south of the border cuisine again.

Fasting is arguably the antithesis of what this blog’s about, but I hope you’ll bear with me as I embark on the AFD (Alternate Day Fasting Diet).

It’s taken me a long time to appreciate the finer qualities of beetroot. In the naivety of youth I didn’t know any version other than the metallic tasting, vinegary tinned variety existed. Gloops of it slapped on top of iceberg lettuce didn’t add much to a salad, […]
They’re not an endangered species, don’t worry. It’s our backyard lemons that are on their last gasp, their stocks having been finally depleted by my constant inroads. There are actually still a few left on one of them, however HWMBF has instructed me to leave them there “because they look nice”. What’s he thinking …. it’s a Christmas tree??? Mind you, I’m probably just about cooked out lemon-wise, especially in the dessert department, as evidenced by my expanding waistline. But not quite. As a grand finale, this week I made Triple Lemon Cupcakes.
