I'm an ex-pat Polynesian/Pakeha NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving.
I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=43 and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start.
Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! 2008 and 2009 were the years that I started martial arts for the first time and I am now a keen judoka.
Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years!
I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I potter about in my garden although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
Don't expect me to review anything that contains boiled peas! It's my one persisting lifetime food dislike. I am probably best known for my desserts and baking.
I am really lucky that I have a great well-priced organic greengrocer just down the road from me as well as the fantastic markets here.
I grew up on Dutch food so I have a soft spot for that and my favourite comfort food is definitely boerenkool. My own style is more Pacific rim/Mediterranean which suits the produce here.
I usually am the dessert cook for potlucks and family gatherings, and supplier of vegetarian food.
