The Lunchbox Diaries – Oat and Sultana Bars

Usually Winter signifies a time to bake in my household. It’s cold and cosy and the warm oven and delicious smells permeating the house really scream out comfort. However, the weather lately has been quite odd for Winter… the days have been amazing. The warm sunny days have seen us spending more and more time outside and … Continue reading

The Lunchbox Diaries – Big Batch Biccies

We are nearing the end of term two of the school year here in Queensland and I am losing my lunchbox mojo! I am fairly certain my kids are sick of eating apples and carrots for morning tea (not that there is anything wrong with these, some variety would be nice though!)

Choc Zucchini Muffins (Gluten Free)

We are half way through school holidays here in Queensland and I’ve finally got some time to work and blog.

Breakfast Jar – Chocolate Chia Pudding

Eating or drinking things out of jars seems to be the craze of the last few years. It might seem a little odd at first but it actually does serve a purpose and can make life a little easier. Jars are handy because, unlike many containers, they won’t leak. They are useful to take juices, … Continue reading

Kids’ choice – Sausage rolls

Sausage rolls are a fun way to sneak in loads of veggies for your kids. They are a great party or finger food and are easy to eat on the go. Homemade sausage rolls are great and always taste so much better than the ones bought from a bakery or the freezer section of the … Continue reading

Muesli bars with a twist

Today has been a rather random day here on the farm. I woke up this morning to the howling wind and freezing cold temperatures, so I had to light the fire! Third day of spring and I had to light the fire! Crazy! Our house is like an icebox though and tends to stay very … Continue reading
