A new arrival

Yes, that’s right.  Today we welcomed a new family member.  She doesn’t have a name as yet, but she is gorgeous.


When we decide on a name we will let you know.  She is a staghound and is 8 weeks old.  Everyone is very excited to have her.


How much can you bake in a day

With a 9am start and finishing at 3am, I managed to bake approximately 150 cupcakes, 150 biscuits and 60 cupcake pops.  Not bad for a days work.

The recipes for the cupcakes all came from the Crabapple Bakery Cupcake Cookbook, the biscuits from the Australian Woman’s Weekly Cookies and the idea for the Cupcake pops from the Martha Stewart website although I used my own recipes for that one.

Hello world!

Let me introduce myself.  I am a mother to three young boys.  Of course, they all have different tastes, which makes meals interesting to say the least.

My eldest is autistic and dislikes change, so introducing new foods to him is a challenge.

My middle son loves meat, dairy and fruit.  Vegetables don’t rate too highly with him.

My youngest loves fish, vegetables and fruit, but only seems to eat meat if it looks like a sausage.

As for me, well I love to cook.  I wouldn’t class myself as a great cook, but I do pretty well.  No everything works, but I’m willing to give it a try. 

I hope you will join us on are cooking journey.  We will show you our favourites and try a lot of new things along the way.
