Temptations Cafe and Dessert Bar, Broken Hill

Apologies for my lack of posting over the past couple of months- they've been quite hectic and stressful, trying to put everything we've learnt over the previous year into practice within a short time period of 10 weeks. But it's over now, and I can finally say that I've finished uni for good this time.

I haven't had a chance since I got back from Broken Hill to properly finish my posts from then, so I thought I'd quickly put them up on my blog before I forget, starting with one of my favourite Broken Hill cafes, Temptations.

The problem with staying up late on Friday night in Broken Hill is that you end up waking up late on Saturday morning, so by the time you cycle your way into the main street of town, most of the cafes and shops are just about closed.

I can't say we're too fond of the 1-2pm closing times, because it leaves us with little time to explore and not much to do in the middle of the day. Luckily, Temptations Cafe is open almost all day, and this so we end up here for a late lunch when almost nothing else was open.

Tuna Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette


I've tried countless numbers of salad recipes over the past two years, because I seem to keep making salad for lunch. It's the easiest option when there's not always access to a microwave, and though it's not the nicest thing to have in the middle of winter, the recent warm weather in Sydney has been perfect for salad so I thought I'd quickly share with you one of my favourite salad dressing recipes.

Low Fat Spinach and Tuna Quiche

I've always shyed away from making quiches too often, because as tasty and convenient as they are, the amount of fat in the pastry makes the seemingly innocent snack, quite an unhealthy one. So when I recently came across a recipe card with my Mission Foods package which used a wrap as the shell instead of pastry, I was quite interested to see what the result was like.

The Mission Soft and Fluffy Wraps are a good size for making mini quiches, although my muffin cups were a little smaller than the recommended, so mine ended up being rather tall. Make a small incision and press into your muffin pans and you've got an easy replacement for pastry- and you don't even have to worry about cutting it into perfect circles either because they already are!
