  1. Definitely the Yorkshire Puddings - my favourite treat, especially if I haven't had to make them myself!

  2. I've never had a lot of success making Yorkshire puddings but I do love eating them :)

  3. Potatoes are most definitely my weakness! The thought of duck fat potatoes are making me salivate, haha.

  4. roast pumpkin! There is definitely about roasty charred bits on soft well cooked pumpkin... yum!

  5. Dad's AWESOME gravy!! I can never make it the same :(

  6. Roast potatoes for sure! Crispy and golden outside and fluffy in the middle. The best!

  7. Gravy everywhere!

    Regarding Yorkshire Pudding, I've found the recipe from Cook's Illustrated is pretty foolproof:)

  8. patimickey5:00 pm

    Caramelized roasted vegetables...Why are they so sweet?? So delicious!!

  9. Thanks for the tip Steven!

  10. Crunchy, salty crackling on roast pork!

  11. Hand's down yorkshire pudding

  12. Anne Freier3:46 pm

    Vegetarians please cover your ears but I love that beefy bovine goodness that's slow cooked and well rested. The meat is the star and the extras are just the back-up singers.

  13. This sounds amazing! :-) I adore Yorkshire pudding absolutely swimming in gravy. :-)

  14. LOVE yorkshire pudding!! Soak up the gravy with a bit of creamy horseradish, mmmmmmmmm

  15. Leaving the Yorkshire Puddings until last and dipping in the leftover yummy gravy - always a winner!

  16. Like so many others, I love the trimmings more than the roast! A fave is of course the Yorkshire Pudding (Batter Pudding if yo come from Southern England) though I'm also a fan of a good horseradish sauce or cream.

  17. I love the large chunks of onion that sweeten and soak up some of juices from the meat during roasting.

    yorkshire pudding. I've tried and failed many times to make them. Love them!

  19. Debra Lidster11:47 am

    yorkshire pudding. They remind me of the Sunday roast dinners my mum used to make.

  20. tricia kallquist2:18 pm

    The left over roast meat sandwiches for lunch the next day!

  21. roast duck fat potatoes swimming in gravy. oooh yes and squishy roast pumpkin and cauliflower bake and oh yum and did i say lots of gravy?:)

  22. I love roast crunchy potatoes with roast veg and copious amounts of delicious gravy. I also love the crunchy end bits on a roast.Washed down with a smooth glass of red wine.

  23. Amanda3:58 pm

    I love the gravy and the juices of the meat mixing with some creamy cauliflower cheese. I don't mind the cleaning up with my scanpan roasting tray it's been a roast epihany.

  24. I love the crackling on a roast pork, the marrow from roast lamb leg and the bum from roast chicken!

  25. Tracey9:32 pm

    The crackling is the best part. Salty and crunchy. Ah, ultimate deliciousness.

  26. Whilst I definitely love the food, when I have a roast I love that I'm surrounded by either great friends or family.

  27. whats my favourite part of a roast you ask, well my friends this is not an easy task. For you see in a regular Sunday Roast, its for the Meat that we usually boast. But in an Yorkshire this just isnt the case, as the sides are so delicous we just wanna stuff our face. Seeing the mouth watering vegies on the side, the duck fat potatoes makes your drooling hard to hide. So many condiments to add to your plate, makes the pig-n-whistle a hard place to hate. So lets not pick a winner from yorkshire roast but to all of the food give a loud proud toast!!
    p.s. i love roast. xo

  28. Anonymous1:14 pm

    Zucchini Slice - Not a traditional roast side but definitely a favourite in my family.

  29. The crackling...mmmmm!

  30. Inger2:35 pm

    Yorky for sure

Brisbane's top 10 'chew with a view' restaurants and cafes

It's a beautiful day! Where can you go and dine in the warm sun with a view that you'll never want to leave?

Here are ten top places in and around Brisbane to while away a lunch hour or a whole afternoon when the weather is warm and the skies are blue .

River Quay, South Bank

South Bank’s River Quay precinct has plenty of opportunities to relax in the sunshine and just about any restaurant at River Quay will offer a great spot for a winter lunch with a large, grassed lawn rolling down to the river bank.  You can even lie in the sun if you so desire.

Stop for champagne, oysters and more at Cove Bar and Dining, enjoy French provincial food at Aquitaine Brasserie, take in the river view from a Balinese daybed while you tuck into the contemporary menu at The Jetty, feast on Italian cuisine at Popolo or sip a long drink on the riverside deck of Stokehouse Q where the menu draws on local produce combined with bold flavours from the Mediterranean.

River Quay is the spot for Sunday …

Thar she blows - how to hunt whales the friendly way

A grunt and a spurt of seawater rising into the air show the position of a mother humpback whale and her three-week-old calf.

I'm on purpose-designed whale watching boat and we have motored for an hour over the calm seas of the great sandy straits up the coastline of Fraser Island

Captain Phil tells the 50 or so people aboard that the tip of the island is where we will see the whales and he is right.

Our first mother and calf are a little shy at first, keeping the boat at a good distance but I can clearly see the much smaller calf swimming strongly beside its mother.

I'm fascinated by the large circles of calm water that float past us and Phil tells us these are whale footprints

"They break the water tension when they flick their tails to swim down resulting in the clear circles on the water,” Phil says.

Sailors used whale footprints to track whales back in the bad old days when whales were valued more for their blubber than their beauty.

Our next mother and calf are a l…

Lunch amongst the lavender in the Scenic Rim

It was time to brush the cobwebs off the motor bike over Easter and head out of Brisbane into the beautiful Scenic Rim.

We started down the highway towards Beenleigh in beautiful autumn sunshine and stopped for a coffee at The Outpost Cafe at Canungra.  This is a well known bikies hangout but don't expect too much in the way of chains and dreadlocks - it's more favoured by the middle aged bikie enjoying the freedom of the road second time round.

The road less travelled is always our favoured route for this type of outing and we back tracked through Rathdowney before reaching our destination for the day, Kooroomba Lavender Farm about 65 minutes from Brisbane in the Scenic Rim at Mt Alford near Boonah.

Autumn is not the premium time for viewing either the vineyard or the lavender but the view across the valley to the mountains was still outstanding.  The building has a New Zealand lodge feel to it with plenty of stone walls both inside and outside, complimented by timber and ex…

Ten top things to do in Noosa Heads

It doesn't matter how many times I head down the hill on Noosa Drive towards the ocean, I still get a little shiver of excitement every time. This very special part of the world has achieved international recognition for its unique environment and I am privileged to be able to dip my toes into it on a regular basis.

Here are ten of my favourite Noosa pastimes.

1. Although it’s always tempting to sleep in, I don't like to waste a moment of the day when I wake up in Noosa. The best way to start is in the coffee queue at Sails on Hastings Street and then a stroll along the winding boardwalk to the National Park, koala spotting along the way.

Depending on my mood and energy level, I continue the walk through the park to enjoy the beachside views. Some like to run it. You can pick up a coffee at the information hut in the national park as well.

2. After a bit of exercise there's nothing like a big breakie at Aromas and a spot of people watching. With t…

Lots to explore at Brisbane's South Bank

Four markets in one day - what a way to spend a Sunday!

We started at the organic markets at Downy Park, Windsor which was not such a good idea. Why? Well we took the dog and the place was full of puddles - he's a corgi with very low legs - it all ended up being very messy.

Also, these markets definitely finish up on their advertised closing time of 10.30am.  Call me slow or just plain lazy but I find it hard to get out and about early on a Sunday morning. We arrived primed for breakfast at 10am just as everyone was shutting up - they had even run out of bread for French toast!

However, this market was just the first on our list. Next, we drove to South Bank Parklands to explore the Young Designers Market and the Granite Belt Flavours Market - both on the same day.

Several designer/clothes/jewellery purchases later, K2 subdued his inner male and agreed to look for the Granite Belt Flavours market which was not in its usual spot.  On the way, we walked through the regular South Ba…
