Recipe: Sundried Tomato & Ricotta Dip

If you’ve been around these parts for long then you’ll know I’m a rather large fan of homemade dips, there are so many flavour combinations and they’re generally super easy to whip up, so making them at home just makes sense! Today’s recipe is no exception, it’s full of flavour and it takes under 15 minutes to prepare, can’t go wrong with that!

Recipe: Pumpkin, Chickpea Salad with a Lemon & Chilli Dressing

Even though winter has well and truly arrived in Melbourne I can’t seem to stop making up big batches of salad to take to work for my lunch. It’s possibly because the wait for the microwave is often rather long, but also just that I really do love salads! I love how they can be as simple or elaborate as you like, and the seemingly endless combination of dressings means that there’s no need to repeat flavours very often. It’s a nice way to also use winter vegetables other than just in roasts and soups, which is how they seem to be ending up for dinner! Anyway, enough rambling, on to today’s salad!
