Recipe: Egg-Free Banana Bread

This is my go-to recipe for when we have a bazillion browning bananas in the fruit bowl. 2 1/2 cups of self-raising flour (I use wholemeal if I want to make a slightly healthier version.) 1 cup desiccated coconut 1 1/4 cups of brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda 1...

Recipe: Strawberry RhubApple Crumble

Rhubarb reminds me of the winters of my childhood. How Dickensian is that for an opening sentence? Anyhoo, on a whim I ordered some rhubarb in my fruit and vegie delivery. I then did a Facebook and Insty call-out asking for suggestions on what to do with this...

Where is the Green Sheep? party

I kinda want to be Mem Fox when I grow up. She is one of my picture book heroes. When My Little Ladybird showed an intense interest in Mem's book, "Where is the Green Sheep?" it was a pretty proud Mum moment. #tigermum So when planning her 2nd First Birthday...

Strawberry Doughnut Cake

My dad has the infuriating ability to smash 2 cream donuts half an hour before dinner, and still be able to polish off his entire evening meal. All whilst still fitting into the same size trousers he wore as a 21 year old. "For the love of sweet baby cheeses!" exclaim...
