  1. I have been lucky enough to share Clair’s Chilly Burgers with Onion Jam – what a treat, it was delicious and a meal I will remember with joy as we all tucked in. I love your recipes and always keep a look out for new ones.
    keep up the good work ….cheers Denise


  2. Hi Clare – Love your blog – keep those recipes coming, you are and will be quite the chef – back in Brisbane for a couple of days before heading south. I notice you are heading down the coast towards a little place called Stuarts Point – when I was in my early teen’s I spent time fishing and collecting lots of oysters which I soon learnt to shuck. At one time I successfully managed to shuck 100 in one sitting – No I didn’t eat all of them. I also collected lots of bait fish and fished on the beach; experiences I will remember forever. Enjoy the beginning of the journey and keep up that good positive attitude. I guess with no work that’s easy to do.
    Take care – Hi to Dean. Cheers D


    1. Thanx Denise,
