Easy BBQ Lamb

If you’re an Australian you probably have read a thousand lamb recipes.. if you’re from anywhere else in the world (mainly U.S.A) this may be new for you.. Greg, my husband, hadn’t had much lamb before he moved here 8 years ago. Now, it’s one of his favourite meals! The great thing about lamb is…

Raw Banoffee Pie

I am a sucker for Banoffee Pie! I hate cake, muffins and most sweets in general.. but banoffee pie.. something about the caramel, banana and whipped cream hits my dessert spot! Last week a friend of ours made miniature banoffee pies that were absolutely amazing, but the amount of calories I consumed (partly due to…

Baby Ava- 18 weeks on!

Well friends, Ava is 18 weeks old.. I feel like I deserve a high-five for keeping a baby alive for 18 weeks! While it hasn’t necessarily been difficult it is a HUGE life change.

My first time Sugar Cookies!

I have always wanted to make Sugar Cookies, but with working full-time it wasn’t a priority, considering most people recommend refrigerating the dough overnight. But, I finally decided to jump off the cliff and make them! The dough was the easy part.. trying my hand at icing with royal icing was another story.. I will list…

Healthy Banana Pancakes

If you follow me on instagram you’ll know that we just got back from 2 weeks in the U.S. It was a wonderful trip, visiting all of my husband’s family. Due to this trip we’ve been experiencing a little bit of jet lag. Nothing major, just getting up around 5am wide awake..Normally, for breakfast, I grab…
