Homemade Beetroot Wraps

Last week I released my brand new cookbook Mixing with Kids: Sneaky Veggies. I really wanted to share a recipe from the book with you all and ummed and ahhed about which one to share. The second I saw this one whilst scrolling through the pics I knew this was the one to share. If you have been following my blog for some time you will know I love homemade tortillas and wraps. My Spinach Wraps and my Tortillas are still two of the most popular recipes on my blog. SO good!  Making wraps/tortillas yourself is so so easy and they taste so much better than store-bought. I am sure [...]

Cheesy Pesto Scrolls

I LOVE scrolls. When I first starting blogging I posted a recipe for scrolls which is still one of the most popular recipes on the blog. People love a good scroll. Whilst they take a bit of time and patience they are so worth it. You won't buy from a bakery again!  For years we were very basic and repetitive with our scrolls. They were either cheese and vegemite or a pizza type scroll with tomato paste, herbs, capsicum, ham/bacon, pineapple and cheese (so delicious by the way).  Lately I have been loving pesto anything! These pesto and cheese scrolls do not disappoint.  If you haven't got time to make [...]

Chocolate Hommus

Join us This may be my new favourite snack! Delicious chocolately goodness with a secret ingredient - chickpeas! Even kidney beans work a treat! Who would have thought. This is a great party food or slightly healthier dessert. I use 70%+ dark chocolate for this recipe. If you do not like dark chocolate you can use milk chocolate. The dark will give it a much stronger chocolate flavour so just keep that in mind. It is best consumed straight away. You can refrigerate it but it will firm up so you will need to add a little milk and give it another mix. This can be made as firm or [...]

Condensed Milk Biscuits

Join us Does anyone else have 265 cans of condensed milk in their cupboard? I have no idea how I started a condensed milk family but I have (actually I blame my Lazy Caramel Slice recipe!!). They are all there staring at me every time I open the pantry. I hate to break up the family but I need to start using some. Friends and family are about to be inundated with food gifts! These biscuits are a great way to use up a tin and make a large batch of delicious biscuits. There are lots of simialr recipes around the internet that add an egg or 1+ cup of [...]

Caramelised Onion Dip

Join us I absolutely love dip! Nothing  beats a dip and cheese night with friends but Im struggling to find good store bought dips these days. I tend to make most of our dips with the help of the Thermomix. Making it yourself takes no time at all, often cheaper and you know exactly what is in it. Win, win, win. This is my Caramelised Onion Dip which is a delicious variation of my Bacon and Onion Dip. It a nice twist on traditional french onion dip that I know so many of us love. My other dip recipes: Bacon and Onion Dip Roasted Capsicum Dip Cheese and Bacon Cobb [...]

Cheese and Spinach Muffins

Join us Savoury muffins are something that are so yummy but not something I make often enough. This week I have been running a lunchbox theme here on the blog and I thought it wouldn't be complete without a delicious savoury muffin. They are a great alternative to sandwich.

This edition is all about recreating store bought favourites and oh boy do we have delicious recipes this week. If you missed the challenge and want [...]

Caramel Rice Bubble Bars

Join us This recipe for Caramel Rice Bubble Bars comes from my wonderful friend Amy who is an amazing cook and has so many amazing recipes just like this one. Word of warning - these Caramel Rice Bubble Bars are very moreish! I didn't think I would like them as much as I did. They are a strong honey flavour but the sesame seeds add a slightly nutty flavour to them. These are a great twist to traditional rice bubble bars sold in the supermarket. They have a handful of very basic everday ingredients and are so easy to whip up. My 6 year old loves making a batch of [...]

If you missed the challenge and want to know when another is running sign up to our notification mailing list! These biscuits are a variation of my Banana Bread Biscuits I posted a little while ago.

Chocolate Avocado Cake

Join us This week we are running another round of #freezertolunchbox 5 day challenge. This edition is all about hidden veggies so I'm keeping the theme going on the blog. If you missed the challenge and want to know when another is running sign up to our notification mailing list! I am slightly obsessed with a chocolate and avocado combo at the moment (can you believe I used to hate avocado?!). Putting them into a cake or biscuits like my Chocolate Avocado Biscuits (so good!) has really made me come around to avocados. I now love nothing more than a big bowl of guacamole! Anyway.... I'm rambling. Back to the [...]

Berrylicious Bliss Balls

Join us These are delicious! These berrylicious bliss balls come from my Ready. Steady. Lunch! Mini Cookbook (This book is jam packed full of lunchbox friendly goodies!). These have been so popular that I thought I would share them on the blog for everyone. They are lunchbox friendly, take no time at all and a hit with the kiddies. Better yet, they can be frozen so you can make a large batch over the weekend and freeze for weeks to come. Don’t forget to hang out with TRTLMT in all the cool places!

Wholemeal Banana Bread

Join us I am often asked for a banana bread recipe made of wholemeal flour. Up until recently I didn't have one but after some experimenting I think I finally have one that passes all teh tests - not too dry, lots of banana flavour and not overly sweet. Tick, tick, tick!
