Sweet-as honey biscuits (like your gran makes)

Sweet-as honey biscuits (like your gran makes)

I don't know if you've noticed, but I'm really old-school when it comes to recipes. I like the granny recipes like these honey biscuits more than anything. Recipes that have been made hundreds of thousands of times over the years by thousands of people. The kind of...

Treat yourself to this divine zucchini and lemon loaf

Treat yourself to this divine zucchini and lemon loaf

I'm so happy to be adding this zucchini and lemon loaf to our loaf recipe collection. The bigger the loaf collection grows, the happier I am. Loaves (feels like it should be 'loafs', but no) are just so incredibly easy and versatile. The thing with a loaf is that they...

Easy Italian biscuits like our nonna makes

My Italian mother-in-law Maria (FYI 99% of Italian mothers-in-law are called Maria), makes a mighty fine biscuit. She generally has a batch of easy Italian biscuits coming out of the oven on any given day. And by 'batch' I mean around 200 biscotti. Marias don't do...

Our delightful caramel apple teacake

Our delightful caramel apple teacake

Even the word 'apple teacake' makes me feel warm and fuzzy. There's just something about cooked apples that speaks to the child within. And 'tea time' is pretty much my favourite time in any day. So, this particularly delightful apple teacake originally came from a...

This unbelievably good date loaf is one of the quickest cakes you’ll ever make. If you don’t think you’re a baker, let this date loaf completely change your mind. I reckon anyone can make it and anyone would like it. It’s not messy, fussy or finicky, but it sure...

Healthy weetbix slice – reduced sugar, increased good bits

My son loves weetbix and we often have bags of 'leftovers' stuffed in the pantry, ready to be turned into weetbix slice. This month I was a bit stumped, though. We were doing a 'no sugar' challenge and my usual recipe for the slice was packed full of the stuff. So, I...

My local is lovely friend Soph (author of the absolutely wonderful A Basket By The Door) created a recipe for Alice’s easy apple muffins that we made once and then another 20 times. Since our first baking, the girls and I have modified the recipe so many times that...

Vegetable fried rice – your new go-to midweek meal

This vegetable fried rice recipe is a ‘throw it all together’ one pot meal that my family are ga-ga for. It’s pretty much made with all the stuff you have in the freezer on any given Sunday and it’s yummy. If you've got brown rice, frozen or fresh veggies, eggs and...

How to help your child be more assertive

My middle child is a shy one. She's full of beans and very outgoing when she is comfortable, but struggles when she doesn't know people well. In fact, I'd go so far to say that being asked to be more assertive with people she doesn't know is the very, very worst thing...
