  • A beautiful dawn to end an amazing chapter in our lives! I've been very silent across all social media this week as, aside from having the kids home on school holidays, our much loved farm has sold and I've had to pack it all up and move out. There has barely been enough time to keep everyone fed and happy let alone to take pics before the earlier sunset and to post my cooking adventures!! I definitely miss it and hope to start posting again this week!! The good news about selling up though is that we've been able to secure a property in a more fertile part of the Southern Highlands! There's an orchard with apples, quinces, figs, peaches and lemons, a small olive grove, grape and berry vines,  space to establish a serious veggie garden, paddocks with enough grass for cattle and our goats to happily munch to their hearts' content, and a dam that will provide us with fish and yabbies to boot!!! This is the next chapter of our paddock to plate journey and I can't wait to show it to you next nonth when we move in! Have a wonderful week friends and thank you for your loyalty and patience!! 😘😘😘 #mummascountrykitchen #newadventures #paddocktoplate #farmtotable #sunrise #southernhighlands #nature

    It sure was @aforagersheart, the mastiha and mahlepi gave it such a beautiful flavour 😋😋😋


    A forager's heart:
    @mummascountrykitchen Delicious! I couldn't find mastiha but had mahlepi. Can you buy it in Sydney?

  • To celebrate Easter tomorrow, a whole heap of baking and cooking has taken place in our home, typical of so many households around the world! This is what I've made to take to my parents' for dessert after the midnight liturgy and feast tonight - meringue nests filled with vanilla bean whipped cream, speckled chocolates and a light dusting of cocoa...because you can't have an Easter feast without chocolate!! From my family to yours, I wish you all a happy, safe and peaceful Easter full of love, laughter and lots of delicious food!!! 🙏🙏🙏 #mummascountrykitchen #pavlova #dessert #easter

  • KOULOURIA - Just as Holy Week is about to begin, it's time to share my favourite recipe for these traditional Greek biscuits - a recipe that's been passed from my yiayia to mum and now to me...and I'm sure it will become my children's go to recipe as it really is so simple. No separate beating of the egg whites to the yolks, it yields about 40 bikkies and subtle hints of ouzo and vanilla make every bite better than the last! A great dunking biscuit too!  I just love all the traditions of this time of year and will share as much as I'm able to during the week!! The link for the recipe by the way is in my bio above and also in the comments below xx #mummascountrykitchen #koulouria #greekfood #lovetobake #Easter

  • CARBONARA DAY - From not having pasta in so long, we're having it twice in one week!! It wouldn't be right though to let #carbonaraday today to come and go without a post! Spaghetti carbonara is one of those classic dishes that I don't like to fuss with - the only ingredients are our fave <a href=/user/barillaaus/1>@barillaaus</a> spaghetti, pancetta, egg yolks, parmesan cheese, black pepper and a couple of  cloves of garlic...and it was divine!! 🍝😋😊 #mummascountrykitchen #carbonara #pasta #dinner #italianfood

  • A warming bowl of pasta on the first chilly school afternoon of the year! I made a lovely osso bucco dinner last week and had a heap of leftover salsa which I couldn't bear to throw out so into the freezer it went. With my little man not feeling the best I thought he'd appreciate something warm after school today....so the salsa was defrosted, an extra cup of stock was added to the pot and then orecchiette was added to cook directly in the salsa! A sprinkle of parmigiana reggiano to the top and a delicious after school meal was ready...and looking at the state of his half tucked in shirt, he'd had a rough day, needed something to turn things round and thought I was the best ever for having pasta for him today (although, I must say, he wasn't too happy waiting a minute for me to take a pic 😂😂). Have a great week folks 🙌🙌🙌 #mummascountrykitchen #pasta #lovetocook #mumivehadaroughday

  • GREEK STYLE NACHOS - After the baking extravaganza of the past couple of weeks, I think it's high time to get back to seasonal eating...of all kinds - sweet or savoury, lunches or dinners, fruits or meats and everything else in between! Let's start with baked, crispy pitta bread topped with a traditional Greek salad. The tomatoes, cucumber and oregano leaves were from our veg patch, and then there was a little red onion, olives and feta added to make it a horiatiki (village-like or rustic) salad. Piled on top of the bread and then drizzled with a little extra virgin olive oil, it personified what I love about seasonal eating - simple and delicious!! 🍅🍅🍅 #mummascountrykitchen #greekfood #rainbowfood #paddocktoplate #farmtotable #lovetocook

  • BAKLAVA CAKE - Here it is, the last bake of the weekend, and it's without a doubt the most special - my little man's birthday cake for his party tonight. It's also appropriate to end my takeover with this cake as it's an opportune way to say thank you to <a href=/user/csrsugar/1>@csrsugar</a> for being asked to do their first Instagram takeover. It's been so much fun, and I couldn't have been prouder to share the bakes I make with their wonderful products. Seeing as though my kids are growing up seeing the CSR brand in the pantry, I have no doubt they will continue to use these products as they take on their own baking in the future. This stunner is made up of two layers of a traditional Greek walnut cake with a slab of syrupy baklava in the middle. Cream cheese frosting and crispy filo pastry flakes complete this celebration cake. Enjoy the rest of your weekend folks!! 😀😀😀 #mummascountrykitchen #asweetlife #bakingnation #instagramtakeover

  • CARROT BUNDT CAKE - There's something extra special about baking birthday cakes for loved ones - the cakes may be simple at times but they're always welcomed with oohs and aaahs before being devoured by everyone! This beauty is for my father-in-law whose birthday is tomorrow. He is a wonderful man who has treated me like a daughter ever since we met 20 years ago. A loving father and grandfather, it was the least I could do to celebrate his birthday! You can see all the different elements to this cake in the <a href=/user/csrsugar/1>@csrsugar</a> instatory for today. I'm having an absolute ball taking over their account and still have so much I'd like to share over the coming days! 😊😊😊 #mummascountrykitchen #carrotcake #asweetlife #bakingnation #instagramtakeover #lovetobake #celebration #cake

  • CSR SUGAR TAKEOVER - This week is a huge baking week for me with two birthdays in the family along with the start of recipe testing for soon to be needed Easter goodies. Ever since I was a little girl, baking with my mum or yiayia (that's grandma in Greek 👵), there was only one brand of sugar in our pantry - CSR Sugar. I am absolutely thrilled to let you know that I will be taking over their Instagram account for the next three days, sharing my cooking journeys for the rest of the week.  I hope I may even inspire you to maybe do some baking of your own along the way 😉😉 To whet everyone's appetite, here is my beetroot and shallot tarte tatin, the recipe of which you can find on the CSR Sugar website or on my own. See you soon over <a href=/user/csrsugar/1>@csrsugar</a>!! 😊😊 #mummascountrykitchen #asweetlife #bakingnation #instagramtakeover

  • BANOFFEE CAKE - It was my little man's birthday today and I thought he had his heart set on his fave chocolate cake...until he asked for a banoffee pie! I was then inspired to remake the classic pie (the recipe by <a href=/user/curtisstone/1>@curtisstone</a> is my hands down favourite), transforming it into a banoffee layer cake that was so much easier for him to cut through. Burnt butter cakes were held together by a vanilla bean cream cheese whipped cream, with lashings of butterscotch sauce and fresh banana slices sealing the deal! It was moist, luscious and absolutely delicious! Now I have to think of what cake I'll be baking for his bbq on the weekend! Happy birthday darling!!! 🎉🎉🎉 #mummascountrykitchen #banoffeecake #birthday #remakeaclassic #dessert #lovetobake

  • THE DESIGN RETREAT - The past week has seen me cooking lunch and dinner for between 15 and 20 people, in 5 different kitchens in the Southern Highlands of NSW....and I had a ball!! A group of the loveliest interior designers were brought together by <a href=/user/lisaburdus/1>@lisaburdus</a> for #thedesignretreat where they were treated to talks by the fabulous <a href=/user/kathrynmireland/1>@kathrynmireland</a> and <a href=/user/melissa_penfold/1>@melissa_penfold</a> amongst other super talented and relevant speakers. I'd like to say a big thank you to Lisa for the opportunity and for believing in my cooking! Standing beside me the whole of the retreat was my fellow cook and, without a doubt,  an absolute gem <a href=/user/gillianbellcake./1>@gillianbellcake.</a> Thank you Gillian for your company,  direction, guidance and advice in so many things over the past few days - I simply adore you! Special mention must also go to <a href=/user/the.flo.show/1>@the.flo.show</a> and <a href=/user/annabellehickson/1>@annabellehickson</a> (who took this amazing picture) who are not only super talented but all round beautiful people.

A group of the loveliest interior designers were brought together by @lisaburdus for #thedesignretreat where they were treated to talks by the fabulous @kathrynmireland and @melissa_penfold amongst other super talented and relevant speakers. I'd like to say a big thank you to Lisa for the opportunity and for believing in my cooking! Standing beside me the whole of the retreat was my fellow cook and, without a doubt, an absolute gem @gillianbellcake. Thank you Gillian for your company, direction, guidance and advice in so many things over the past few days - I simply adore you! Special mention must also go to @the.flo.show and @annabellehickson (who took this amazing picture) who are not only super talented but all round beautiful people. My home will always be open to you girls 😘😘 Now it's time to get back into it and share everything I've learnt with all of you! With a solid week of birthdays ahead it's going to be a wonderful week of baking - woohoo, let's do it!! 😀😀😀 📷 by @annabellehickson #mummascountrykitchen #southernhighlands #workshop #letsgetcooking

    Darling Helen, I'll never forget this week:) Thank you for putting your hand up to assist me - you were a trooper. And then to open your home to the retreat's support crew was kind and generous. I'll miss seeing the sun come up from your kitchen window. It's true- the retreat guests were the most beautiful, courteous bunch and I thoroughly enjoyed cooking for them. And I join you in thanking @LisaBurdus and @Kathrynmireland in asking us to be the retreat cooks. To @melissa_penfold and @cameron_kimber, thank you for allowing us into your kitchens to prepare lunch. Your beautiful homes and your warm welcomes will never be forgotten. X #thedesignretreat

  • PI DAY!! I managed to get a photo in the fading evening light of my eldest's favourite dinner - curry chicken and vegetable pie! It's rustic, packed with flavour and the most perfect dinner for Pi Day!! Using my favourite sour cream pastry from a recipe by <a href=/user/maggie_beer/1>@maggie_beer</a>, there was not a crumb left once dinner was done!! I just love that! 😀😀😀 #mummascountrykitchen #piday #chickenpie #lovetobake #dinner

  • PI DAY! It's really difficult to go past a classic apple pie - the stunning aromas of butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking apples filling our home at the moment is enough to make the effort worth it alone...well, that's until we take that first delectable mouthful of crusty goodness later this evening (along with a dollop of quality creamy vanilla ice cream) which will make the effort doubly worth it!! Adapted from a recipe by <a href=/user/yossyarefi/1>@yossyarefi</a>, this is an absolute beauty!! Enjoy the rest of your day and make sure you include a delicious pie in your travels today!! 🍎🍏🍎 #mummascountrykitchen #applepie #piday #lovetobake #paddocktoplate #farmtotable #dessert

  • Sunrise in the country - magnificent, soothing and impossible not to capture. The sun is peeking over the trees, the fog is clearing, the rooster is crowing, the parrots are squawking, the kangaroos are having a munch on the back hill, and the house is quiet...bliss!! With only the sounds of nature keeping me company, I'm having the first coffee of the day and am so excited for the coming week. There are few things I love doing more than cooking with friends and this week I'll be cooking in the country alongside <a href=/user/gillianbellcake/1>@gillianbellcake</a> for an interior design retreat organised by <a href=/user/lisaburdus./1>@lisaburdus.</a> Also with us, will be <a href=/user/annabellehickson/1>@annabellehickson</a> and <a href=/user/the.flo.show/1>@the.flo.show</a> capturing all the special moments of the retreat. I'm thrilled to be working alongside these beautiful creative women for a few days and will no doubt be sharing moments with you along the way!! First though, there's housework to be done, uniforms to be ironed and presents to be bought for three kids parties next Saturday which hubby is going to have to navigate on his own. I'm so grateful he's my partner in everything, my rock and respite in this crazy world <a href=/user/georgekydon/1>@georgekydon</a> ❤. Have a wonderful Sunday folks!! 🙆🌞🌝☉🐓 #mummascountrykitchen #sunrise #nature #southernhighlands

  • For the record, I had absolutely no intention of baking today...but then I saw the date and thought it was a must to celebrate  International Women's Day! As a mum of two girls, I want them to be grateful for the sacrifices the women of yesteryear made, respect the battles these women fought, and acknowledge that opportunities were not always so available to women. I'd like them to know that women should support and not judge each other or the choices they make, that the core value of feminism is having a choice as to who you are, what you would like to be and what you would like to do. This is what, I believe, today is all about - reflection and gratitude. Happy International Women's Day!! 👧👩👵👱🙆
Ps In case you're wondering, the cake is a gluten-free vanilla butter cake (based on the 100 year old golden butter cake by <a href=/user/babble/1>@babble</a>) with a mixed berry glaze to pretty it up. So good! 😊

  • POMEGRANATE PAXIMADIA (GREEK BISCOTTI) - In our family, there are two very distinct groups - those who dunk, and those who don't. Hubby, the boys and I are all very much in the former group!! In my view one of the best bakes has to be a delicious bikkie that can withstand numerous dunkings in the same sitting...and these deliver!! Flavoured with brandy, cinnamon, pomegranate juice and freeze dried pomegranate seeds, they are delicious, sturdy and perfect with that cup of tea or coffee any time of day. I must say though, they really come into their own as a treat to enjoy with that first cup of coffee in the morning...which is now, so excuse me while I enjoy one...or two!! Happy Hump Day folks!! 😉😊😀 #mummascountrykitchen #paximadia #greekfood #breakfast #lovetobake

A beautiful dawn to end an amazing chapter in our lives! I've been very silent across all social media this week as, aside from having the kids home on school holidays, our much loved farm has sold and I've had to pack it all up and move out. There has barely been enough time to keep everyone fed and happy let alone to take pics before the earlier sunset and to post my cooking adventures!! I definitely miss it and hope to start posting again this week!! The good news about selling up though is that we've been able to secure a property in a more fertile part of the Southern Highlands! There's an orchard with apples, quinces, figs, peaches and lemons, a small olive grove, grape and berry vines, space to establish a serious veggie garden, paddocks with enough grass for cattle and our goats to happily munch to their hearts' content, and a dam that will provide us with fish and yabbies to boot!!! This is the next chapter of our paddock to plate journey and I can't wait to show it to you next nonth when we move in! Have a wonderful week friends and thank you for your loyalty and patience!! 😘😘😘 #mummascountrykitchen #newadventures #paddocktoplate #farmtotable #sunrise #southernhighlands #nature
