My name’s Elaine.  I’m 32 and I’m addicted to food.

By day I’m a doctor and when I’m not at the clinic, I’m all about my family.  I have the most wonderful husband, an amazing 3-year-old son (Lil’ E) & a pretty fresh infant (Miss B).  They love dining out, eating their mother’s experimental food (organic purees included) & traveling.  My children also cook with me (Lil’ E on a step ladder & Miss B in her Baby Bjorn), enjoy concocting crafty creations & fake amusement with their parents whilst their photographs are added nightly to a growing collection of enormous hard drives.

This blog is a place for me to de-brief at the end of the day.  After all, most men would agree that (most) women have an awful lot on their minds.  Despite the name of this blog though, I hereby swear, as a wife and mother, that this is a strictly PG website.  Despite this commitment, my husband’s ultimate ambition with regards to the food posts is for readers to want to “lick the screen” – his words, not mine.

At the moment this blog is primarily about dining out, cooking at home, activities to do with young kids, and day trips around Victoria.  In the near future, my goal is to get stuck into more parenting entries (at the moment I’m searching to find the correct tone with my background as a doctor) as well as more craft and overseas travel entries.  So stay tuned.

If you have any tips, questions or recommendations, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email at

Thanks for reading..
