Firstly, what exactly is singing a […]
With Easter only a week away this simple and delicious ice cream cake will be a winner with the kids and anyone that loves ice cream and chocolate eggs! It is so easy to create that the children can even help (however expect a few eggs to be eaten in the process). If you haven’t […]
With the 2015 school year coming to an end (yippee only one week to go) it also means very soon there will be no more school lunches to prepare for a few months! After a year of packing lunches, including baking and preparing the various school snacks, would you believe I have found an EASY and […]

During school holidays, this little sentence is never ending. Food supplies diminish very quickly and those in between meals are normally substituted with […]

Congratulations to Stephanie and Tiffany from Surviving Four Kids. The Cauliflower and Pumpkin soups were a hit. My kids went back for seconds and even thirds. Hubby and I also enjoyed them too.
