So often a temperamental soul, especially when the camera is on him, sometimes it is possible to catch Pedro in a moment of serene meditation. It’s quite the turnaround to have the little guy change from an almost disdainful awareness for the way I’ll offer him up for our amusement on this site, to this […]Read more "The Many Moods of Pedro"
So I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things with this blog business.

So I’ll dial up a few images from today’s shenanigans, starting with my attempt to recreate Sassy Earl Grey’s Browned Butter Earl Grey Tea Pound Cake with Sweet Yellow Peaches and Vanilla Drizzle. 300g of butter later I’m not sure […]Read more "Peckish Sr’s Birthday"

If you love cats, give the blog a try sometime. For this particular award you’ll have to suffer through an A-Z listing of little […]Read more "ABC Blog Award"
Le Pirate was one of the first blogs I stumbled across when I started up The Peckish Kiwi. As far as clicking the follow button, that was about as easy as it got, and she hadn’t even started on the recipes yet. When the recipes did start, it epitomised the treasure trove that blogs are for […]Read more "Le Pirate’s Zucchinea and Broccolea Green Moat (Or Garden Soup if You Prefer)"
