Mission Feedback

As a nation, we recently held a moving ANZAC Day commemoration. So now is a good time to reflect on how we treat our military personnel during and after their service. It speaks volumes about who we are as New Zealanders.

Let’s not leave those who serve our country behind.

Let’s not leave those who serve our country behind.

Can New Zealand do more to ensure that past, present and future service people - and their whānau – are recognised and supported?

Hi everyone - I am the food editor at Stuff and I will be posting recipes, kitchen hacks and weekly meal plan ideas on this page. If you have any recipes to share or questions, feel free to send me a message.
If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.

The Team Reporter from Dominion Post

Many Kiwis returned to their offices today, on the first Monday after New Zealand moved into level 2.

However, judging by the empty buses and relatively quiet streets in the capital, not all Wellingtonians have returned to their workplaces.

It's all happening and our flatmate is moving out on the 25th of May. So we're looking for someone lovely to move in.

We are a small family (me, female aged 43, twin daughters aged 10, one small non-shedding dog and a large fluffy cat). I'm a piano teacher so sometimes the lounge is occupied (Sundays, Monday afternoon/evening, Thursday afternoon) but there are two living areas - the kitchen/dining room is large and has a couch. Happy to share a meal once a week (I cook once, you cook once) or keep things separate. We're 2 minutes' walk from the no. 1 bus stop, 10 minutes' walk from the supermarket, butcher's cafes restaurants etc. and 20 minutes' walk from the beach. The house is pretty sunny with a garden area. The room available is a single - 3 metres x 2.75 metres - plenty of room for a single bed, chest of drawers and wardrobe, would fit a double bed but there'd be less room for furniture. $200 pw plus expenses. A later move-in date is also fine, if you know someone looking please pass on our info! Jess: 0204537777
