HOT: McCormick Grill Mates

It’s barbecue season! Or if you live in Melbourne, it’s winter roast season again after the freezing ‘Spring’ we’ve experienced. McCormick Grill Mates are a new product that I was given to try which flavours grilled or roasted meats with a mix of herbs and spices, from pepper steak to bush lamb. A packet of […]

HOT: Healthy(er) Chocolate Fudge Cake by Donna Hay

As I’ve said before Donna Hay’s Fresh and Light is my new favourite cookbook so Lady AB and I have been working our way through many of the recipes. Our latest trial was for a healthier version of a chocolate fudge cake. I’m of the view that chocolate is not necessarily a ‘bad’ food – everything […]

HOT: Tupperware Grow With Me Feeding Set + Giveaway!

Lady AB and Baby 2.0 have been cafe-going kids from a young age which means that I’m always toting around food for them when we go out.   And now that I have two kids eating solids I have to bring double the amount of food with me. Thanks to Tupperware I was asked to […]

HOT: Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies

I am trying to progressively clear out my pantry so this week I decided to use up a couple of jars of peanut butter I have lurking around on the shelf. I’ve tried this recipe with good ol’ Kraft crunchy peanut butter as well a jar of peanut butter from the gourmet supermarket and it […]

HOT: Dairy Farmer’s Thick and Creamy Mini Yoghurt Breakfast Parfaits + Breakfast Smoothies

I was recently invited to a brunch for the launch of new flavours of Dairy Farmer’s Thick and Creamy yoghurt.

HOT: Gingerbread Men by Donna Hay

On Grandma’s recent visit Lady AB received a few more cooking utensils to help build her cooking kit collection, including a gingerbread man cookie cutter. Of course we had to trial the cookie cutter straight away so it was onto Donna Hay‘s easy, failsafe gingerbread recipe. I like my gingerbread spicy so in my version […]

HOT: Orange and carrot muffins

We’ve made a bit of progress recently with Lady AB finally eating more vegetables. So this week I decided to continue the improved veg intake by baking some muffins that included grated carrot. The carrot in these orange and carrot muffins is barely discernible in taste and you can grate them up really fine if […]

HOT: Flapjacks by Rachel Allen

Rachel Allen is an Irish chef who’s very popular in the UK with her TV shows and cookbooks. She’s never really made a name for herself in Australia but when I lived in the UK I was given her recipe book by some colleagues. Occasionally I dip into ‘Food for Living‘ to make fuss-free, comfort […]
