Oh, yeah. I created something magnificent today. It’s raining and cold and I had an empty house and clean kitchen. And it’s Easter.

Think Snickers ... Continue reading

Winter slaw

We’ve been enjoying coleslaw a lot lately. It reminds me of the 80s, but there’s something really delicious about crisp vegetables coated in creamy home-made mayo. The weather is cooling down though and I wanted to try something a bit different that would hit the spot in the colder months. Brussels sprouts make up the bulk ... Continue reading

Home-made Mexican-spiced beef

The first time I did a Whole30, aside from not having dairy, my biggest concern was not being able to have Mexican. Our old favourite store-bought taco seasoning was riddled with sugar and nasties. Not at all Whole30 approved. So I was forced to create my own Whole30 approved seasoning mix. And you know what? ... Continue reading

Ghee is not just clarified butter + how to make your own ghee

It seems I’ve had a little pet peeve develop without me really noticing. All over the interwebs, I’m seeing clarified butter being referred to as ghee and ghee being referred to as clarified butter, and statements about them being the same thing. I just feel the need to point out… Clarified butter is not ghee ... Continue reading

Gluten-free pumpkin fritters

I am all about reducing waste. Can’t help myself. I’ll use scraps in our food, save scraps for later, use leaves and stalks… whatever it takes. So when we had nothing for lunch the other day and not a lot aside from a hacked up bit of pumpkin in the fridge, I decided to experiment. ... Continue reading

5 coffee alternatives to try this week

The last few weeks, I’ve been struggling with anxiety in a pretty big way. It’s not something I’ve had to deal with in a long while and it’s been awful. I might go into details at another time. But, for now, a little tidbit. I’ve noticed on the days I’ve had a coffee, my anxiety is ... Continue reading

I didn’t enjoy my holiday, but I’m kind of glad

A couple of weeks ago, my mum surprised me with all-expenses-paid weekend away down the coast at Werri Beach, with babysitting included. I was beyond excited to get away without the kids and just get some rest. Let my mind slow. I want to point out that I am so grateful to my mum for doing this ... Continue reading

Better-For-You BBQ Sauce

BBQ sauce was on my plate with almost every single dinner growing up. I wasn’t a fan of tomato sauce (or ketchup, to some of you). It just didn’t have that smokey sweetness that BBQ sauce did. And so BBQ it was. On my sausages. On my burgers. On my rissoles. On my chicken. On ... Continue reading
