HOT: Olive Oil Chocolate Mousse by George Calombaris

Happy Bastille Day! Today is also Baby 2.0’s six-month birthday, so to celebrate Lady AB and I have made a suitably French birthday treat that the whole family could share. After dismissing more spectacular ideas like a croquembouche or macarons, I fell upon the idea of chocolate mousse because, well, it’s something that a baby […]

HOT: Lemon Cupcakes recipe by Hummingbird Bakery

Lady AB’s new favourite book is the  The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook! She flicks through it going ‘white cake, pink cake, purple cake, yellow cake, biscuit, biscuit, biscuit…’ so this week I decided to use more of our abundant lemon harvest to make The Hummingbird Bakery’s Lemon Cupcakes. I find the recipes in the The Hummingbird […]

HOT: Chocolate Weet-Bix Slice

My theory about quintessentially ‘Aussie’ food like Weet-Bix and Vegemite is that you have to grow up with them to like them (the exception being Tim Tams). As I moved to Australia when I was 6 years old my formative years were Weet-Bix and Vegemite free and as such I find both foods quite offputting […]

HOT: A week of dinners with Marion’s Kitchen

Tim and I love to eat Thai food but I don’t really make it at home. We have a few choices of great (and also some terrible) Thai takeaway near our house so there isn’t really the incentive to cook it – until now, as we’re on a saving-money-project which by necessity involves eating in […]

HOT: Chocolate chip and chickpea cookies by Vegie Smugglers

Before I had kids I always thought I’d be the smug parent with a kid who ate anything and everything. I mean, I pretty much eat anything and everything (and I have a huge appetite) and I always imagined that half the battle with getting kids to eat their vegetables and other healthy food was […]

HOT: Philips Avent Toddler Cutlery, Toddler Mealtime set and Travel feeding set + Giveaway!

When I look at Lady AB now I sometimes marvel at how she’s grown. She’s a proper little girl now, not just a blob that can’t do anything for herself. In fact, Lady AB has a very independent mind and that includes at mealtimes. She likes to ‘use’ cutlery (or bang or scrape or throw […]

HOT: Vanilla Poached Quince recipe

Quinces are only a recent discovery for me and they’ve quickly become part of my cold-weather slow-cooking repertoire. I first picked them up at our local farmer’s market and the grower told me that they were like a mix between an apple and pear. That is exactly how I’d describe them! While they take some […]

HOT: Carman’s Yummo’s by Carman’s Kitchen + Giveaway

One thing I have learnt as a mother is always to have snacks on hand. This is behaviour that Tim doesn’t share. Every time he takes Lady AB on an outing I shove a lunch box at him filled with fruit, crackers, cheese etc and he looks at me quizzically. ‘We’re not going for very […]

HOT: Pear and Muesli Muffins by Carman’s Kitchen

I recently attended an event where I was given a couple of boxes of muesli by Aussie company and mumpreneur success story Carman’s Kitchen so for my Sunday baking sessions with Lady AB this week  we made some muesli muffins. On the Carman’s Kitchen website there are a few recipes using Carman’s products and the Pear and Muesli […]
