One of the most simple recipes for using your wild edible weed foraging’s is pesto. Versatile, tasty and this version boasts extra health benefits and was all found on the road sides around our beautiful Whangaroa Harbour.
I love to forage when I'm out on my weekend bike rides, its amazing the goodness that grows along our road sides. Unfortunately glyphosate (round up) is still sprayed in New Zealand, liberally (sadly), so you have to be very cautious where you forage.

There is no doubt I LOVE edible flowers in the garden but this one took me by surprise... Magnolia petals are edible! I just had to have a play, and I have to say that I'm stoked with the results. We are on a shady side of a hill so our flowers are just starting to come into full bloom now, but I have been admiring others trees for a couple of weeks already.
Winter is the best time of year to get your fill of dark leafy greens. Kale chips are healthy, crispy, portable & delicious. They are a winter staple in my pantry. My girls love them so much when they came home yesterday from school there were shouts of delight as the aroma of them cooking wafted into their nostrils as they entered the house which make my heart sing as these little beauty's are so very good for them and they would literally eat the whole lot in one sitting if I let them, which is...
