Catching up with Kylie Moore-Gilbert, swearing by snail skincare, and a hearty Vegemite gravy…

Squiz Shortcuts - Kylie Moore-Gilbert

This week’s episode of ABC TV’s Australian Story on what happened next for Aussie academic Kylie Moore-Gilbert after her arrival home from a stint in an Iranian prison was quite a ride. She’s got a new partner – Sami Shah (who we used to talk to on the radio when he had a hosting gig) – and a baby.

We’ve been struggling with our skin – the old regime isn’t working anymore, and it’s been zit/irritation city. Complaining didn’t work, so we did some research and settled on giving this ‘power essence’ a try. Yes, it’s made of snail mucin (sounds eww but it’s not…) – it’s worth a try if your skin needs something new…

Vegemite’s 100th anniversary got quite a run this week, and given we’re coming to the part of the year when gravy is often called for, now’s the time to get into training. The yeast spread is an essential ingredient to the thickened sauce, according to many cooks – and this is the one we like. It’s great with red meat and poultry.
