Wow. I don't know about you, but I've had a good long think about this whole plastic free thing. These last couple of weeks have been quite an enlightening experience. As a late night snacker, I've been able to see the problem with being a late night snacker in a house full of processed and… Continue reading Snacky Recipes for #PlasticFreeJuly

The last few months, I have been focusing on something that I didn't think I would get back to this soon. Work. Luckily, my work is fun. It's photography, of course. I've been in the process of restarting photographing people, food, weddings, all things kid. It's been a stressful few bits and pieces here and there,… Continue reading Catching up on blogging and business..
Dummy, pacifier, binky, or what we called it, dubba. This isn't a post about why they are good or bad or evil or the best thing you could ever do for your sanity.

Last minute dessert for tonight! Yikes! Maybe topped with some icing sugar?
The last few weeks we have been going through some chaos here at the homestead. Bathroom renovations are still going on, the house is covered in a layer of dust, the hallway is off limits for the boys, we’ve been going out and about EVERYDAY to stay out of the way of the tradies, and to top it all off, our oven stopped working. Luckily the grill and fan still work, so we’ve had to cook a lot with a curve and my bread and baking have all been on hold until we can get it fixed.
I was able to make a variation of some date bars that I posted on FB this week though.

Last week, on our usual trip to Moore Wilson's, we were greeted by a massive wooden crate in the middle of the shop with locally grown apples! Halleluja! It's almost autumn! Not that I want it to come too quick, since this summer has been truly amazing! But really, there has been a slight drop in… Continue reading It’s just about APPLE SEASON!!!
