Asparagus with Poached Egg and Warm Bacon Vinaigrette Recipe by Julie Goodwin

Asparagus is back in season! Finally we are seeing fresh, delicious Australian asparagus on the shelves and what a treat it is. It’s great just lightly sautéed or steamed, beautiful in a quiche, a lovely addition to a spring salad or wrapped in prosciutto and grilled as a simple appetiser. This dish is a simple weekend breakfast.

Baba Ghanouj Recipe by Julie Goodwin

It’s also the right time of year for one of Mother Nature’s most versatile ingredients – eggplant.  Beautiful stuffed with cheeses and baked, in a Thai red vegetable curry or a decadent moussaka.  Here’s one of my favourite ways to use it – in the traditional smoky Lebanese dip, baba ghanouj.

Hot Cross Buns Recipe by Julie Goodwin

Easter is one of the two big food events of the year in our family, along with Christmas. Traditions must be observed and no matter whether we are home or away – even camping – there has to be the full roast with all the trimmings. Pork is the preference – with lots of crackle and home-made apple sauce. And of course, hot cross buns.

Corn Fritters Recipe by Julie Goodwin

I love corn.  And one of the best things about summer is the fact that it’s in season, readily available and cheap!  This year Mick and I have tried growing our own.  It’s a thirsty crop so if rain isn’t regular it needs a bit of help.  Thankfully we have a rainwater tank so no dramas there!
