Beef and Mushroom Stroganoff

Beef and mushroom stroganoff – it certainly isn’t diet food, but my god is it delicious.

Strips of beef, smokey paprika, mushrooms and sour cream, served with starchy carbs <3. Can I get a hells yeah?! Super quick to prepare, packed with flavour and creamy enough that everyone will love it. It’s an ideal winter meal, which is why this bad boy is on track for dinner in at my house tonight.

Little Gunga, Milton NSW

Review – Little Gunga, Milton NSW

Little Gunga, Milton NSW

Little Gunga, Milton NSW –

Billed as a “coffee/art space” Little Gunga is one of the many coffee offerings in the buzzing tourist village of Milton on the South Coast of New South Wales.

My husband’s family is from Ulladulla and while visiting one weekend a few years back his sister insisted we visit the newest cafe, obligingly we went along with the promise of good coffee, and we weren’t disappointed. As we walked in the door we were greeted by the welcoming face of a barista I had worked with many moons ago at a cafe in Cronulla, so immediately I knew we were in for a coffee treat. Blake has since sold the cafe, however the new owners have employed a lovely lady, Rhiannon, I went to high school with who is still pumping out high quality coffee.

Little Gunga is nestled in an ally leading to a car park but has much more charm that one would expect to find from that description. Hosting an eclectic mix of seating and well lacquered wooden bench tops, paired with a beautiful bench front composed of reclaimed timber off-cuts, you immediately feel at ease in this relaxed space.

75 foodies on Instagram

Well I think it is safe to say that after drooling over reading this Daily Life article: on the 75 best foodies to follow on Instagram my news feed is going to look a lot more delicious!

The are some stunning snaps and drool-worthy dishes on show. So much so that I felt it was my foodie duty to share the list with you. There are some I knew and followed like Jamie Oliver, Ida Frosk and Citrus and Candy; while there are others on the list I had never heard of, with great shots and very few followers. So if you like looking at pictures of things that taste great, which I assume is why you are here, then you MUST check these Instagramers out.

Oh and one little plug while I’m here – you should also follow me on Instagram! @daily_gluttony to keep up to date with all the delicious moments in my life like this Moroccan Lentil Burger – nom nom nom.
