Zucchini & Corn Lunchbox Muffins

This would have to be one of my all time favourite kids recipes that I make almost every week. Originally a zucchini slice recipe that my mother passed on to me when I had children, now I have shared this with so many of my friends and now you all.

My kids just love having them as individual size muffins. It’s easy for them to eat and makes for a perfect lunchbox size snack. Another way of hiding those pesky veggies in a way they will love with sweet corn, ham, eggs and cheese. They don’t last too long in my house so making a double batch is necessary for me if you want them to longer. Freezer friendly, wrap them in cling wrap and pack them frozen by lunch time they will be thawed just in time to eat. (more…)

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 delicate hug, a feeling of unconditional 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 cuppa. It’s 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.  (more…)

Pizza Scrolls

It’s a wet start to the Summer holidays and unfortunately it doesn’t look like its going to change anytime soon. The wet Summer storms may be more often than not over the Christmas break, at least the veggie patch will thrive with a good drink.

It was prefect weather however for baking up some easy kids lunch treats seeing as they are home for nearly two months I will have to have the pantry and fridge packed to the rafters. My boys have bottomless pits as stomachs, they are always hungry so having healthy homemade snacks at home is a must or I hear the ever so repetitive nagging of “Mum I’m Hungry!” (more…)

Nut-Free Lunchbox Apricot & Honey Oat Bars

It’s back to school time!

It was the first week back of term this week QLD and for the rest soon approaching. There was mixed feelings sending them on their merry way this week was a combination of excitement but also unwillingness to get back into the hectic routine. The hardest part of the holidays for me is always trying to keep the kids entertained. With three active boys can be some what difficult at times to keep up with their incessant amount of energy and boredom kicks in very quickly, which soon turns into mischief, fighting, whinging and tears.
