My foodie memories

I have so many memories of food  from my Grandmas legendary meat and potatoes pie to my mums gammon and chips with pineapple. I recall falafel in Israel backpacking around in my teens and endless baked potatoes as a student in my 20’s.


Cooking through the decades

To help celebrate the fact that lots of memories are created during mealtimes, Rennie® has created the Cooking through the Decades infographic.

Oh its fabulous! It will jolt so many memories for you

The infographic is a journey through time celebrating different eras.  I picked the 1990’s and pesto!  I remember everyone eating pesto.


As a family of veggies I am always on the search for speedy and super healthy recipes. This one packs a veggie punch and is a simple tasty make.
