Pretty Perfect Pancakes

2019-08-29T21:22:45+10:00

We all know that the first pancake you make is always a test pancake. It’s usually overcooked or even a little bit burnt. But there are a few secrets to cooking pretty perfect pancakes. The temperature The temperature the pancakes are cooked at plays a large part. I like to start with a hot pan, add some butter, then turn down the heat. The best time to flip your pancakes is after the bubbles have stopped forming and the edges have turned matte. The size I like to make my pancakes roughly the size of a bread plate. This makes [...]

3 Ingredient Homemade Tim Tam Ice Cream

2019-07-23T08:15:36+10:00

I have spent most of June and July using up all the items we had in the fridge, freezer and pantry since we started using the cash envelope system. We have used up a lot of items with the help of Pinterest and Google. But one item had me stumped. Condensed Milk. I knew that I could make fudge using the condensed milk but that felt a little too boring. Once again I found myself browsing recipes on Pinterest and I came across homemade ice cream. All of the recipes were simple enough, using minimal ingredients. And it didn't take [...]

Toddler Friendly Zucchini Recipes

2018-10-18T22:59:45+11:00

Finding appropriate toddler foods can be difficult so I'm sharing my favourite toddler friendly zucchini recipes. I’ve been so lucky that my daughter seems to like everything we have given her. There have been a few things that she doesn’t appear to like, but I’ve noticed it comes down to the texture. There have also been a few cases of things not agreeing with her little tummy. But she seems to have grown out of most of those. It doesn’t take long before your toddler wants to feed them self so having bite-size food is a must. Zucchini slice was one of [...]

Box Cake Mix Tips

2018-08-28T20:45:16+10:00

I bought a giant tub of multi-purpose cake mix for my daughters first birthday last year. I made about three dozen frosted cupcakes for the party. But after that, I put it in the top of my pantry and forgot about it. It's getting close to the use by date and I feel that I need to use it up. The giant tub makes about 12 full sized cakes or about 144 cupcakes. I should get another three cakes or three dozen cupcakes from it. There are so many simple ways to improve a box cake mix. From adding extra [...]

Homemade Lemonade

2018-09-16T12:20:38+10:00

Here is my quest for homemade lemonade. My family likes to catch up before Christmas because everyone is so busy & there are so many people to see. Each year we take it in turns to host & everyone brings something to pitch in. We usually just have a BBQ, which makes it pretty stress-free. This year I volunteered to bring some meat, hamburgers & sausages. From the window, I could see many large lemons hanging over the fence. So I asked my cousin If I could take a few home with me. She offered a bag for me to [...]

Orange Marmalade

2019-06-29T13:21:18+10:00

We often have an excess of fruit at work from the weekly delivery. At the end of the week, we are encouraged to take home any fruit that is still in the fruit basket. The common leftovers are mandarin, apple, pear, orange with the occasional banana. It really depends on what fruits are in season as to how many that we get, also determining what's leftover. I love having a variety of fruit to choose from. It means I don't have to worry about remembering to bring snacks to work. Because of this, I often eat 2-3 pieces of fruit [...]

DIY Australian Pumpkin Spice Latte

2018-09-28T14:04:51+10:00

I was lucky enough to be in North America in November where I sampled many Pumpkin Spice Lattes. There aren’t many Starbucks stores in Australia & I’m quite sure they don’t sell any of the wonderful seasonal American treats. Lucky for me, once I had tried a Pumpkin Spice Latte I had an idea of how I could replicate it at home. For me, a Pumpkin Spice Latte tastes like a chai latte crossed with a strong coffee. And I mean strong. There is no hint of pumpkin, as with many pumpkin or pumpkin spice flavoured treats. The spices generally used [...]

Quick Dinner for Two

2018-09-28T20:19:26+10:00

Dinner for two doesn't have to be extravagant. This great quick meal when there isn't much food in the pantry. These pasta side dishes are great to have on hand for when you really don't feel like spending much time in the kitchen. One packet generally serves four people as a side dish but also make a great dinner for two when you add a few extras. This time I added one chopped carrot, roughly 1/4 cup of peas and one small tin of tuna. The idea of adding the extra items is to make more of a nutritionally balanced meal, [...]

Breakfast Protein Mug

2018-10-24T22:20:46+11:00

Breakfast is my absolute favourite meal of the day, and you can bet your bottom dollar that I will eat breakfast before I leave the house. I choose toast or cereal most days, but sometimes I like to switch it up. Porridge or pancakes are great for days when I have a bit more time. But when I started working out, I discovered the beauty of eating a high protein breakfast to give me the energy to start my day. I generally have all of the ingredients on hand, so it's often an easy choice. This high protein breakfast is [...]

Smoothie Bowl

2018-10-26T15:09:43+11:00

One of the main reasons you would make a smoothie bowl is to take numerous photos for your various social media accounts. I’m honestly not a fan of having a smoothie in a bowl. I find it really difficult to eat. Or is it drink? Either way, I have decided that I like to drink my smoothies from a glass. The first thing you need to make a delicious smoothie bowl is frozen fruit. I always have blueberries or raspberries in the freezer and they are perfect for this. Not only are they tasty fruits, but they also have an [...]
