Chia coconut pikelets {toddler food}

Posted on September 19, 2012

Pikelets are the perfect treat for chubby little toddler fingers. They are easy to hold, easy to chew and don’t make too much mess for mum (no crumbs!), so are great portable snacks for the pram or car.

If, like me, you have wasted far too many minutes of your life vacuuming up cracker crumbs from your car, then you’ll join me in praising these yummy little mess-free pikelets. Just don’t serve them with jam – unless you have a few spare hours to hang around in the laundry (and I’m guessing you don’t!). (more…)

Crunchy crust kale pasta bake {vegan}

Posted on September 10, 2012

This dish had a working title of Green Mac ‘n Cheese and then in brackets – (the vegan addition) – right up until the last minute. When I realised it doesn’t actually have any cheese… because it’s vegan. Duh.

But Green Mac ‘n Cheese is a good name, don’t you think? If you don’t care to eat a vegan meal, then go right ahead and make this dish with cow’s milk and replace the crunchy crust with cheese – and then you can call it that.

If you are uniting with me today and eating vegan, then read on for an absolute stellar dish – yes, even if I do say so myself! (more…)

When I was planning the Aussie BBQ Bonanza I knew that I had to include prawns… on the barbie. Despite popular opinion we don’t call them shrimps here in Oz (sorry if I burst any stereotypes!), they’re strictly prawns! (more…)

If you love oranges, then this cake is for you. Two whole oranges (rind and all) give it a fiercely fruity flavour and deep orange colour. It’s a feast for the eyes as well as the tongue! (more…)
