Portsea Hotel: Lamaro’s on the Deck

Disclosure: My guest and I dined courtesy of Portsea Hotel / Lamaro’s on the Deck and Kate & Co. Wouldn’t it be nice to leave the city behind and head down the coast for summer? Particularly on these hot, hot days? That’s exactly what the team from Lamaro’s, the restaurant in South Melbourne, did earlier [...]

Barmah Park Vineyard Cafe

Disclosure: We dined courtesy of Barmah Park. You may remember some of my previous posts about trips down to the Mornington Peninsula. These trips are always fun. Part of the fun is getting to spend day with friends. Part of it is getting to poke around op shops looking for food blogging props. Some of [...]

Ciao Bella

Following the success of Friday Road Trip, the Labour Day long weekend saw us (me, Shellie, Thanh, April, Haz and Gaz) pile into two cars for more driving and llama seeking. This trip had a slightly different focus from the previous one – instead of food, our goal was an op shop crawl. There was [...]

Montalto Piazza Cafe

It was one of the hottest days in 2013, I had a Friday off work, and my DD was back from a month long holiday. It called for a Friday Road Trip. We roped in Thanh and Shellie, piled into Shellie’s car and headed down the Peninsula. On the drive down there was Spice Girls [...]

Fork to Fork

Tired of going to lunch at wineries? Yeah, me too. Wineries are so last year – the latest destination dining is in a garden. Okay, that is not true. But we did eat lunch in a garden recently when Annette and Terry, Alastair’s mum and step-dad, arrived the other week for a visit. They arrived [...]

La Petanque

How did people decide on places to eat and activities to do before the internet? When I started planning our Mornington Peninsula weekend a couple of days before heading down there, I looked at blogs, websites, checked out menus, and I even made restaurant bookings online. One place I booked was La Petanque, located in [...]

A weekend away: Mornington Peninsula

I’m an awesome trip planner. And I’m really good at choosing places to eat. Hah – modest much? During our weekend away in the Mornington Peninsula, Alastair heard these two statements a lot. Perhaps I blew my own trumpet once too often when my normally patient husband replied, “Yes, and you have no trouble talking [...]

T’Gallant: mushroom foraging

I’m not a big fan of autumn, winter, grey skies, and rain. Every year, I eagerly wait for summer to arrive. But even I must admit that there are some positives to the cold, wet weather – one of them being wild mushrooms. A couple of weeks ago, the Boys and I headed down to [...]
