Easy Dinner Recipe – Tangy Lamb Wraps

6 February, 2015
tangy lamp wraps

  Friday night dinner. I don’t know about you guys, but often, by the time Friday rolls around, I’m really not that interested in cooking a full-blown family dinner.  Call me lazy, call me tired, call me slack arse mama and you’d be right on every count. If I lived on my own, I could be happy with an easy dinner recipe of a long cool drink, corn chips with salsa and a side of spinach leaves, feta and olives. …

Last weekend we had my mate Amy and her little boys over for the day.  I like Amy.  Not only does she bring my baby god son for me to cuddle, her other little man to distract Lil D but she also brings yummo food. Once she had in her bag of tricks jam drops and Lil D snuck off with them making an attempt on licking the jam out of every biscuit before we found him.  Gah ! Kids.  They save the…

Happiness in a tub AKA Maple Tree Hugger by Ben and Jerry’s.     How the Maple Tree Hugger Ice Cream stayed safe in…

16 February, 2014
made with Natvia Baking Pack

My mission to limit the sugar intake of my family brought me to making this cake this weekend however, it wasn’t as easy as I first thought it would be. My first few attempts at this cake had me tearing my hair out!  The cake didn’t rise and lacked that cakey crumb texture.  (Since yesterday I have learnt that baking with sugar substitutes is fraught with the absolute danger of it turning into a complete FLOP!) This is because, it…

Fruit Water : The Thirst Quenching Alternative

I am not big on sweetened drinks and thankfully neither are my kids. When summer hit with a bang these school holidays, I noticed the kids not drinking as much water.  We were away on holidays at the time and they were complaining the drinking water tasted funny.  (We have rain water at home and once you become used to that it is hard to change water) Resisting the urge to go and buy a bottle of juice or cordial…

I think it is essential for every family to have stashed in the pantry the ingredients to throw together a fast and delicious meal for at least one night a week.  It  just makes it easy for the non-cooks of the family to help out when the main cook is out, tired or under the weather. Being the main cook in our house, I put my hand up to being the least motivated to cook each Wednesday night, after being…
