Introducing Me….Hi I'm Maria :) I've been blogging for about 8 years. You'll find all sorts of recipes here, so feel free to use the 'search' field above. I've recently started preparing food that makes me feel better. I have no interest in living off tofu sausage links. Food needs to satisfy and be gorgeous & tasty. Many of us poison ourselves each day with excess white flour, sugar and artificial additives. I want to give my fatty liver a break so I can lose a few kilo's. I'm getting more and more into enzyme's, live raw foods, superfoods, increasing my energy, improving my quality of life and yes, even increasing my life expectancy. Cooking and dining out is my bag. My passionate, edible bag. But the only cardboard you'll taste here will be my blog background, which was probably once a box for vegies. Love your food, without killing yourself. My new philosophy.
Like Foodie Wanderings?Between 500-600 people visit me here every week from all around the world. New year (2013), new-look website and finally you can 'like' this page on Facebook to keep up to date with what and where I'm eating. Until now I've been posting my random food photo's and foodie banter on my personal Facebook page. That's all changing. I've just started the Foodie Wanderings page and will pretty much post daily (where food is concerned). Today an eggplant exploded in my oven. See the photo on Facebook :)

Music to make washing dishes go faster…We Won't Give Up - The After's
You can hear me on the radio…Back in highschool, I always dreaded the English teacher initiating 'read aloud' time. A chapter of a book would be selected and if you were chosen, you'd have to read a whole page (or more) to the class. When it was my turn, I ran out of breath by the second line. My hands would shake & my face would sweat. I had a fear of public speaking, no less. Today I do live radio. Not in my wildest dreams did I ever even think about such a thing for myself. The breakfast radio announcer on 96three FM found my website via Google and my first day on air was 17th of March, 2009. Me, the person who ran out of breath reading in class .... now on radio, five days a week. It wasn't my plan. But I love it ! I'm a Christian and give thanks to God for this amazing turn of events in my life. I now talk to thousands of people every week. About food ! And no more wiping the sweat from my upper lip! Since 2011 I've also been hosting a segment called 'Behind the Music' which is on weeknights after the 6pm news. The recipe segment is on Tuesday mornings with Guryel Ali, around 8.15am. Guryel asks me "Have you been wandering anywhere?" I talk about the foodie places I've visited (festivals/events/restaurants/cafes) and the meals I've eaten. Guryel always shares too. We talk general foodie news (stuff that may be in the media), recipe of the week (which I provide) and there's a prize giveaway for the first caller through to answer my question! It's a fun segment, I hope you can tune in. P.S. In this modern age of phone app's, you can listen from wherever you are in the world. There's a 96three app on the stations website '96three.com.au' - or find 96three on 'Tune In' radio (app). My timezone is GMT +10.

Last week, on air, my colleague Guryel mentioned eating a very nice Steak & Guinness pie. After that I couldn’t get the thought of it out of my mind, so I bought all the ingredients and made pie’s that night! I favoured Jamie Oliver’s … Continue reading
It’s that time of the year again where Australian’s come across more Australian flags in supermarkets than at any other time of the year. Hot cross buns and Easter chocolate make way for a few-of-weeks-of anything that could enhance an Australia-Day bbq …..like … Continue reading
I’ve made Pho a number of times over the last few years but this particular recipe has to be closest to what I sometimes buy in town for around $12 a pop. After heartily enjoying it for dinner last night, I grabbed a … Continue reading
During the past couple of weeks I’ve changed the way I cook with mince, fry steak and poach eggs. That’s not a bad thing, especially when you’re adopting tips from Heston Blumenthal, the man who has practised and tested things over … Continue reading
It’s Australia Day on Thursday and us Aussie’s generally love a good meat pie. Here’s my version of a genuine, chunky beef pie with a Mmm-mmm, tasty filling. The secret is in the slow cooking but definitely add the beer.. … Continue reading
