Merry Christmas everyone! Festive season is well and truly here – and I’m loving every minute of it. I’m a Christmas freak if you haven’t figured that out already! I’ve even discovered a radio station on our digital radio called ELF radio, playing Christmas carols 24/7. Amazing! This weekend we went to a big Christmas BBQ, which was a great excuse to catch up with friends. I’ve been so busy lately, I feel like I’ve hardly seen anyone. Anyway, the lead up to Christmas is a great excuse to get

It’s getting quite late so I thought I’d keep it short and sweet – much like these biscuits! This week we remember the ANZACS, so I thought (as I do each year) I’d make a batch of the famous ANZAC bikkies… but this time with a twist. Last year I baked the traditional recipe for the blog (found over here) but these, I have to say, take it to a whole new level. I’ve tweaked the recipe a little bit to make them softer and much smaller – bite size

Hello again! Long time no hear! I ran out of time just before Christmas to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday break. I hope you all had a great time off; it can be a pretty manic and busy time of year. We flew down to Tassie on the Saturday before Christmas and had the pleasure of enjoying family and friend’s company 24-7 over the past two weeks. Needless to say I’m exhausted. We spent New Years Eve on the beautiful east coast of Tasmania, in Swansea. It was

I have had the BEST weekend – ever!  On Friday I drove up to the beautiful snow capped Mt Hotham (5.5hrs drive out of Melbourne) where I learnt to ski for the very first time. Why hasn’t anybody ever told me how much fun this is?? It was a big group trip, organised by one of our friends. Everyone in our group had varying experience skiing/snowboarding, and there were a few of us that were complete beginners like myself.  Saturday was a perfect ‘blue bird’ day (a bit of ski

Anzac biscuits

With Anzac Day tomorrow, this weeks post just HAD to be the one and only Anzac biscuit (mmm, don’t mind me, I’m just chomping on one as I type). This is (yet again) one of those recipes that features the magic ingredient… golden syrup. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again – anything containing golden syrup is just so-so-so good. I learnt recently through a blog in the US that golden syrup isn’t that common over there!?! Really? Tragedy! When I was a little girl I used to

Goodness me, I’m all over the place at the moment. I know Easter was over a week ago but I just HAD to share this with you. This weekend just gone was the  Greek Orthodox time to celebrate Easter… so I’ll say it again… HAPPY EASTER (or… Kalo Pashcha)! My good friend Eirini asked me if I’d like to join her in the kitchen to bake some traditional Greek Easter treats. Needless to say I JUMPED at the chance… I love learning new recipes! It was great to learn about

Well how was everybodys’ weekend? I don’t know about you but mine was great! First of all I had two pieces of good news on Friday afternoon… 1. I found out I got a new job (wooohoooo!) It was a three month process from the first interview, but it was worth the wait. Good things really do come to those who… well, you know ; ) 2. The second bit of good news was that I won a competition from The Design Files blog! The new book by ‘The Little

Awww… Christmas isn’t Christmas until you bake a batch of gingerbread men. My cute little niece loves baking gingerbread men (even when it’s not Christmas) but I think she loves making it so she can eat the dough. She must get that from our side of the family! Seb doesn’t like to eat cookie dough (which I think is abnormal). I think I prefer it to the end cooked result! Is that abnormal? I baked these and brought them to work last week (my colleagues love me) and out of all

O-M-G! It’s the first of December! Where has this year gone? Someone told me the other day that the older you get, the faster each year goes because it’s a smaller percentage of life – *gasp*. So anyway, 24 days until Christmas day – my favourite day of the year where I spend the day with everyone I love. This time last year I was making all sorts of lovely goodies in the kitchen for Christmas and this year is no different, although this year I have learnt from my

Ooo ahh! How good is this warm weather at the moment!?  Last night was the first time I had played touch football (or had done any reasonable exercise) in a long loooong time and boy was it good to get moving! Our game finished up just as the sun was setting over the Melbourne skyline.  All those beautiful colours, augh… it was truly one of those moments where you think ‘dagnammit this is amazing! Could it get any better than this?’ It was such a good feeling to get out
