Raspberry Jam Coconut Slice.. The classics never get old.

There are some classic recipes that never seem to get old. They continue to be as popular today as the day they were created. The smell that permeates through the house when baking these classics trigger those child-hood memories of visiting Nanna after school or weekends. Welcomed with a warm yet deliciate hug, a feeling of uncondtional love and a sense of home. Always a freshly baked cake, biscuits or slice on the kitchen bench just incase visitors pop around for a visit. Its amazing how smells connect us with deep emotions and memories something we take a little for granted now a days. As that saying goes we need to stop and smell the roses. Appreciate the little things in life.

Dairy-Free No Bake Lemon & Coconut Slice

My father-in-law has a grand lemon tree that he has grown for many years, it is his pride and joy. He takes great pleasure in showing the fruits of his labour to family and friends each Winter with a gleam in his eye and smile from ear to ear how can we not be anything but grateful to accept the buckets filled with his prized lemons. The lemon tree is in full bloom with hundreds of beautiful juicy lemons the size of  baseballs which means we have an endless supply. Whilst we have been using them in juices, cooking, teas etc we still have them by the bucket loads. Baking just seemed the natural fit to use some of these luscious citrus fruits.

Healthy Choc Chunk Brownies

For today I wanted to share with you these amazing brownies I made for two reasons. One because my kids love brownies and seriously who doesn’t love an indulgent gooey brownie every now and then. And two, my middle son suffers from very dry skin and acute eczema. With the change of weather now becoming colder and a lot dryer his skin has dried out severely and made him inch and irritable. 

You probably asking why don’t you just use some cream and what has this got to do with brownies?
