Quince Paste by Julie Goodwin

I love a bit of quince paste on a cheese platter. These hard, pear-like fruits are in season now. If you’ve never tried cooking with them before, this is a nice simple recipe to try.

Herbed Roast Chicken with Gravy by Julie Goodwin

As the weather cools there’s nothing nicer than a roast dinner. This lovely herby chicken is delicious enough for a special occasion, but easy enough for a mid-week dinner.

Paella by Julie Goodwin

It’s well and truly time to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air and weather! Paella is a Spanish dish, traditionally cooked on an outdoor barbecue by the men. Have a barbecue with a difference and enjoy some fresh seafood in the sunshine!

Ricotta and Pine Nut Stuffed Zucchini Flowers by Julie Goodwin

These are an absolutely delicious Italian antipasti and a favourite entrée of mine. They take a little effort to make but are well worth it.

Meringue Christmas Tree Recipe by Julie Goodwin

Pavlova would have to be my favourite Christmas dessert. This version is not only a great end to your Christmas feast, it’s also a spectacular addition to the table!

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.

Veal Osso Bucco Recipe by Julie Goodwin

There’s nothing better than arriving home from work after a busy day to find that the slow cooker has been lovingly braising a delicious dinner for you.  Winter is the season for lush, flavourful stews and soups.  Osso Bucco would have to be one of the best around.

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!

Coq au Vin Recipe by Julie Goodwin

It seemed to take forever for winter to arrive but now it has, with a vengeance! It’s time to get out the slow cookers and casserole dishes, shop for the cheaper cuts of meat, and embrace the warmth and aromas of winter cooking. Coq au vin is a simple, country-style French dish that will warm the cockles of even the coldest heart.
