Lunch Gathering with the Girls

I LOVE long lunches spent lounging outside in the fresh air on a warm sunny day. Add to that a beautiful table setting set under a big beautiful old tree in the garden, and you’ve got the perfect setting to relax and enjoy amazing food and great company.

In today’s feature gathering I teamed up with my friend Lily from The Details Co. (an Event Management and Styling company based here in Melbourne), invited a few girls around and spent the afternoon enjoying a late lunch under one of my favourite trees in the backyard.

Tomato, Ricotta, Kale & Basil Lasagne

Here my friends is my new favourite vegetarian lasagne recipe that actually came about by accident.

Spelt Hot Cross Buns (No-Knead Method)

Unfortunately with my current lifestyle, I don’t have the time to knead those precious loaves every 30 minutes for 10 hours!! One day perhaps. For now, it’s my no-knead method for the win! It’s quick and easy and is the perfect baking alternative for those short on time. This method has almost no hands on time with the dough.
