Super Cozy, family cookbook

As an American expat living in Australia, I love the sense of history in this book. It's so cozy and it's lovely getting to know Amanda in the process- she shares personal and family stories along with classic Aussie comfort food.

I love this book.

I love this book. I bought if or myself as a Christmas 2017 gift. You know, "Merry Christmas To Me". I made the dark chocolate & ginger cheesecake for our book club party. I must declare it was a major hit with everyone. Well done Amanda! *****

My kind of cookbook

Cooker and a Looker is my kind of cookbook, filled with the kind of food I love to cook for my family and friends. With joyful recipes, warming stories and beautiful imagery, this book would be at home in the kitchen of anyone who cooks from the heart.

Are you in the right place?

If you’re looking for a paleo-friendly sugar-free activated almond brittle recipe, Cooker and a Looker isn’t the place for you. And if you’re looking for an egg-free pavlova recipe, you’re going to be equally disappointed.

This site is dedicated to real food, prepared with care and eaten intentionally. We don’t do over-simplified fad diets, just proper food with the occasional treat. 🙂

  • Not sure why I bothered decorating for Little Sister’s little party yesterday- they did a much better job!

  • This afternoon two lost horses wandered into our paddock. 
I thought it’d be fun to prank Bearhands, but he didn’t bite. We haven’t found the owner yet, so if you know these two fillies, they were last seen trying to establish which paddock of turf they like the most!

  • Dear Autocorrect,
Every morning at this time I text my husband to see if he’s ready for smoko. Never once have I offered him a smoke. 
Sincerely, 
Amanda

  • Sometimes I think we should offer the farm as a corporate retreat so stressed executives can come and watch the traveler walk down the paddock as the sun sets. #meditation #farmlife #farmer #sunset #sunshinecoast
  • Shortbread ready just in time for smoko.

  • If yesterday is anything to go by, seven is going to be jam packed! #birthday #farmlife
  • H+6 has been a delight. Can’t wait to meet H+7 tomorrow and see what the year holds for us! #seven #already #farmlife #birthday
  • After three (!) weeks of school holidays, I’m looking forward to getting back into routine tomorrow. Well, at least until Tuesday, when the chaos of birthday week starts. 🤷‍♀️ #schoolholidays #puffed #itwasfunthough
