Spring Time Fun Time

This Spring, my to do list focuses more sorting, new beginnings and the garden with just a few new culinary adventures.

  1. Declutter the kitchen
  2. Build a compost
  3. Plant herbs
  4. Get a cast iron frypan
  5. Make pesto from scratch
  6. Live on $2.25NZ per day for 5 days for charity
  7. Make hollandaise sauce
  8. Bake something from scratch
  9. Make Pâté
  10. Make cheese

What do you hope to do this Spring?…or Autumn for my northern hemisphere friends.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. Love it! I’ve been compiling mine too… Can you believe I have ‘make ricotta’!! What kind of cheese are you thinking? To rennet or not to rennet???
    Inspirational as always, G.
    Really looking forward to your Live Below The Line Challenge.

    • I love your list too. Thinking hard all weekend about my Live Below The Line Challenge. I’m planning 3 meals a day so I won’t starve, but I’m pretty sure I’ll feel pretty hungry.

  2. Hi Genie, I’m going to source a soil-less planter do I can have fresh herbs all winter long. I’ll have to think about a bucket lust of culinary proportions! But first I’m looking forward to our trip to Europe in a couple of weeks.
    I just did my first guest post on Five Euro Food, I hope you will pop by and check it out.

    • I look forward to reading about your trip. Though I’ll probably avoid reading about food from the 24th of September while I Live Below The Line. It’s the kind of torture I could do without!

    • Thanks BaconBiscuit. Let me know if you do a list too. I’d love to see it. I know what you mean about perpetual kitchen clutter. This is the longest we’ve lived in a rental. I don’t usually stay longer than a year so we’ve got 5 years of accumulated kitchen crap and food to sort through.

I love your comments! Your comments are like extra melted cheese on top.
