Rocky Road Marshmallow Bars

When we’re off camping or on holiday, I like to take a good supply of snacks along as I think not buying snacks is a great way of saving money you can spend on things that will actually be remembered in years to come. In the midst of packing and getting ready for a holiday, …

Passion Fruit (Granadilla) Slice

You know that playground chant, “my dad’s bigger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s stronger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s faster than your dad”… until blows come or the bell rings? That’s how I feel about passion fruit. Where I grew up in South Africa we didn’t have passion fruit, but granadilla, which is family …

Chia Raspberry Cacao Nib Peanut Butter Slice

This peanut butter slice is adapted from the original Degustabox The Chia Co recipe. I had to make some changes to it as my kids wouldn’t eat cranberries if they were the last food on earth, and human survival depended on them. So I went for the freeze dried raspberries in the cupboard, and filled …

Bear Claws Snacks For Autumn

I do love ‘happy post’ – that’s what we call mail the postman has to ring the bell for!  A few weeks ago we received this fab parcel from BEAR, containing their Halloween/Autumn themed bear claw snacks. I loved the personalised bag that comes as a perk of working with Bear, and did immediately pop …

Easy Monster Eggs

It’s almost Halloween and while the rest of the world have been having parties and trick or treating, we’ve been so busy I’ve not even thought about it too much. This evening though we did breakfast for dinner, of a sort, with sausages, eggs and potato wedges, and I decided to make them a little …

Cheesy Straws

These cheesy straws are a lovely snack for lunch boxes and last minute visitors. They can be prepared whenever you have time, and the pastry frozen – then just pop out a handful and bake when you need them.  I was setting an Autumn scene for some photos I had to do, so we broke …

Dinosaur Eggs (or Easter Eggs)

My children love having dinosaur eggs (or dragon eggs)  for lunch, but these can make really pretty Easter eggs too – ideal for lunch boxes or breakfast around Easter, and they couldn’t be easier to make. Boil eggs in whichever way you prefer. I fill the Thermomix bowl to half way through the internal steamer basket, …

Quick Pancake Mix Recipe

Through all the milestones of life – birth, breastfeeding, parenting choices, weight management, relationship rise and decline – I try to remain non-judgemental and realise that everyone has their own path to walk, but every year, around this time (early February) my inner judge and jury come out in full force when I walk through …

Almond Biscuits With Fondant Icing

Cookies, or biscuits, if you will, are so synonymous with Christmas to me. My mom used to do a huge bake i the beginning of December somewhere, and I remember a lot of cookies through the month, always stored in old fashioned cake tins. That was always fun. I love this recipe because it’s a …

Chocolate Cranberry Muffins (Egg-Free)

I’ve been making muffins a lot lately, because they’re a really easy way to fill the kids up when they’re hungry thirty-seven million times.a.day. They are pretty quick to make while I’m making breakfast, and then they can snack for the rest of the morning. Of course these have too much sugar for that to be a …
