Welcome Back To The Kitchen

Hello again from the 'just frank' kitchen where I am midway through some menu planning and recipe testing, two of my favourite things to do when I have some time out from actual cooking.


I have been working on a host of new goodies to be able to introduce to you in the coming weeks including a Lentil and Roast Pumpkin Lasagne with Cashew Nut Parmesan, a new Chocolate and Chia Cookie and a new variety of pie.
This week, I will be offering the Lasagne as a meal option on Friday's Serene Cuisine lunch delivery menu. The other two offerings are ready to go as well and will be introduced very soon.
I will have some super exciting news for you in the next day or so and I cannot wait to be able to share it, which I will do on my fb page!! 

Check out this week's Friday lunch menu to the right of the page, where you can make your selections and then have lunch delivered right to your home or office door on Friday.

Due to outside catering commitments, I will not be at the Mount Gambier Farmers Market this coming Saturday. 
I apologise for any inconvenience but please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or special requests.

She's Apples


The shelves are stocked up again at She's Apples for my local 'just frank' customers looking for veggie burgers, a ready-made meal, dessert or any of my granolas or bliss balls.


Thank you all for your ongoing support and feedback as the word spreads and stocks continue to walk out the door. 
I am looking forward to introducing new menu items to the She's Apples fridges as more space becomes available through their renovation process, which is nearing its end.

'Serene Cuisine' Menu for Delivery on 13/5/16

I begin this blog post with a sigh as I take a breather from the kitchen and venture out for a much needed 'change of scenery.'
This morning, after a later than usual start to the day, (Sleeping in until 6:30am is a rare treat for me) I decided to change my normal routine and snatch a few quiet moments in a corner of my favourite coffee shop to write.
Although this bustling cafe is anything but quiet, it's such a wonderfully inspiring atmosphere to put my thoughts down on 'paper,' and is void of the usual distractions of my home office that constantly coax me away from the keyboard and back into the kitchen.

It's been a crazy couple of months as I try to find the balance between cooking, behind the scenes business activities, what remains of my gardening business and trying to find quality time to spend on relationships with my significant others.
Oh, and then there's the 'me' time that I so desperately crave.

Actively creating balance isn't easy, particularly when I am so passionate about what I am immersing myself in work-wise, (although it never feels like work as such, and I constantly have to pinch myself to see that I am not in fact dreaming) but it's coming together, and I find that just being conscious of the imbalance, and putting some active strategies in place is half the battle.


As the 'just frank' family continues to grow, so too do the opportunities to reach more and more beautiful people with the whole food, plant-based cuisine that I have become known for.
Earthy, wholesome and 100% plant based, it appears to be what so many people are craving in an attempt to step off the convenience food roundabout and get back to feeding themselves with 'real food.'

Thank you all for your ongoing support and your very generous feedback.
I am totally loving the 'just frank' journey and am so excited about future plans and where these will lead.

On The Menu This Week


On the menu this week, (and I do realise it's not Summer anymore) Buddha Bowls are on offer again by popular demand.
With their wholesomeness, visual appeal and nutritional variety, they make the perfect lunch or dinner option with their blend of chickpeas, brown rice and veggie selections. Buddha Bowls are by far THE most requested menu item, for good reason.

Crumbed Tofu Steaks have become the favourite of many and I delight in altering one's perception of tofu, with the majority of new fans often having had a past bad tofu experience. I stand firm in my belief that if you don't like tofu, you simply haven't had it cooked in a way that highlights its versatility.
As always, I also have a soup option, this week's being a deliciously creamy (dairy-free) Broccoli Soup.

Desserts this week are a choice of either a fresh seasonal fruit salad or Carrot ad Walnut Cake with a Walnut Frosting.

She's Apples


The shelves are stocked up again at She's Apples for my local 'just frank' customers looking for veggie burgers, a ready-made meal, dessert or any of my granolas or bliss balls.


Thank you all for your ongoing support and feedback as the word spreads and stocks continue to walk out the door.

Welcome Back To My Kitchen



As the weekend draws to a close once again, I prepare for a fresh and exciting week in the 'just frank' kitchen.
This week is my Farmers Market week and I take great delight in planning and preparing for it each fortnight.
The market gives me one of the few opportunities I get these days to connect with you, my loyal clients, in a face to face setting, where I can chat with you and share news of upcoming events, menus, and vegan lifestyle tips. 

Please pop by this coming Saturday and say hello.
If you aren't already aware, I have spent the last 6 months slowly winding down my freelance gardening business to make more time for my 'just frank' happenings, a process that I am now nearing the end of. 

With only 6-7 gardening clients left, it won't long before I will be spending my entire week in the kitchen, and with the winter weather closing in fast, I'd be lying if I said the thought of being tucked away in front of a warm oven cooking all day didn't excite me, and as I have a host of new and exciting things in the planning, I can't wait to get started on them. 

If you are new to the 'just frank' family, I also offer a meal delivery service each week. 
This week, delivery day is on Thursday due to my preparations for the Farmers Market taking up most of my time on Friday.

Check out the menu on the right-hand side of the page, fill in the form and submit. It's that easy.
Deliveries can be made to you either at home or to your workplace.

I look forward to seeing you soon......
