Spicy tomato + mango chutney

tomato_mango_chutney2

Okay, okay, I know I haven’t posted in many a moon and I’m not sure when I will be back on a regular basis yet but hey, I’m here now so that’s good right? Last month I did my annual trip to Sydney Produce Markets to join the crazy hustle bustle and pick up enormous boxes of tomatoes and chillies and onions etc. And from these …






Sweet pumpkin and zucchini loaf

pumpkin-zucchin-loaf

Is this the month of brown food on the blog?! Sorry about that but I seem to have been doing a lot of bronzed baking recently. It’s all still jam-packed with flavour and nutrition though! This super moist vege-based bread is perfect for little and big kids alike. It makes a great breakfast (cake is ok for breakfast isn’t it?!) or snack at any time. It’s not …






Banana, nut butter and cacao muffins

banana-cacao-muffins

These nutty banana muffins AKA baby hipster muffins are full of healthy superfoods and fats, perfect for little (or big!) growing people. Max (#littlehowie) is now 14 months and needs more than just a handful of strawberries for morning tea these days so these muffins make the perfect little lunch snack. I realise the recipe makes 9 which seems a silly amount but you could easily pile …






Crunchy flax and chia seed crackers

flax-and-chia-seed-crackers

These crunchy, superfood-packed crackers are just awesome because they use up all that flax seed that comes in the giant packets. Have you ever noticed that? Why do they come in such big bags?! You generally use a very small amount in a recipe and then have all these seeds hanging around. Anywho, that’s not the only reason they are great, they are tastier than …

Two-tone-stands

I am so excited about this beautiful cake stand delivery this week! The lovely Tony had a few hiccups with his truck but he finally got these long-awaited stands to me and I couldn’t wait to shoot them and share. How pretty is the rose gold? Oh and the mint and teal? Or the pink and purple?! Gosh, I just love them all and I hope …






Caraway, date and tomato relish

caraway-tomato-relish

Remember my sweet green chilli sauce recently? Well when I was at the markets I also bought a huge box of tomatoes ($8 for 10 kgs, can you believe it?!) and this yummy relish came about. The dates add a little sweetness but don’t overtake the tomato and then there is caraway and rosemary to add an nice depth of flavour. This relish is yummy with cheese, …

Leftover turkey banh mi sliders

turkey-banh-mi

Since having Max I have rediscovered a love for cream cheese. It just snuck up on me and now I see it in my shopping trolley every week. He loves it in a soft wholemeal sandwich, a bit squidged down so it’s nice and flat. I personally prefer it on a toasted everything bagel with some tomato, onion and cucumber. But each to their own. Anyway, …
