Roast Veggie Frittata and Shortcrust Pastry

For some bizarre reason, I got it into my head last week to make shortcrust pastry from scratch, even though I had to be at uni 30 minutes later. I remembered the cookbook that came with my Kenwood food processor had a recipe in it and it was actually even easier than I expected, despite the fact that we (at that stage) did not own a rolling pin –
A half empty wine bottle works just as well, in case you were wondering 😉

Breakfast: Fruit Platter with Natural Yoghurt

 

 

Some mornings, even in the heart of winter, a fruit platter with yoghurt can be the best breakfast in the world.  I am so excited that it is finally strawberry season and they are now beautifully sweet, without breaking the bank!

Though it may take a little longer, there is something just so fabulous about eating a wonderfully presented breakfast from a tray.  It makes me feel like I am on holiday or being waited on, despite making it for myself.

Natural yoghurt topped with frozen raspberries, toasted almonds and a touch of honey adds a little extra to fill you up after all that fruit.  Yum!

Breakfast: Crumpet with Honey

Another breakfast photo from one of my lazy study days. On a cool morning there is something so fabulous about a fresh toasted crumpet, smothered with butter and honey, washed down with a delicious coffee.

How lucky am I getting one of the best coffees on the Coast made for me every single morning?!

Breakfast: Croissant with Raspberry Jam

A quick trip to Ferry Road Market (not an actual market but an amazing place for gourmet food) last week yielded some fresh croissants for breakfast.  Of course, I can’t go a morning without a fabulous coffee made by my own personal barista who always treats me with a fabulous design atop my latte.

I have been loving taking photos of my breakfast, the light is just so perfect and I tend to have a bit of time in the mornings before heading off to uni.  I have to credit the wonderful Mowielicious for the inspiration, I absolutely LOVE all of his breakfast photos and agree with him that it is a great challenge and way to improve your photography by taking a food photo every day.

Also – how good is this breakfast tray I found in an op shop?  Half price day too! 🙂

Basic crepes

Believe it or not, despite enjoying numerous crepes during our time in Paris, I have never attempted to make them myself.  For some reason, I always assumed that crepes would be difficult to make.

Over the weekend I felt like something decadent for breakfast, but we had very little in the fridge and desperately needed a grocery shop.  A quick google made me realise that crepes are actually very simple, and really are a basic that I should know how to make.
