Foodie Friday: Not that you ever really need an excuse to dish up a yummy roast dinner, but the weather is starting to get a bit cooler, so now seems like a good a time as any. This Mustard and Herb Crusted Beef is so succulent and full of flavour. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Combined with the Red Wine Gravy, this meal is just divine. 

Foodie Friday:  Ribs don't always have to be covered in smoky bbq sauce, although it is very delicious! These Asian Beef Short Ribs are a great alternative. A fantastic way to enjoy some great Australian Beef combined with tasty Asian flavours.

Foodie Friday:  It's no secret that muffins aren't exactly the healthiest snack choice. But if you choose ones that are also packed with plenty of goodness, like these Energy Muffins, then you can enjoy a little treat and the energy boost that comes with it without feeling too guilty.

Designing a new kitchen is certainly no mean feat. There are a lot of questions to ask (of yourself and your designer), style, materials, finishes, and appliances choices to make, and perhaps most importantly, practicality and functionality requirements to consider. After all, when it is all said and done, a kitchen that looks amazing but is almost impossible to use effectively is a pretty big waste of time, effort and precious money. And nobody wants that. 

It is obvious that technology is rapidly creeping into more and more facets of our everyday life. Our homes, and particularly our kitchens, are no exception. But just because we have access to endless amounts of amazing technology and resources to develop these new and exciting gadgets and gizmos, does that mean we should?  Or perhaps are some things better left untouched?
