Life and lemons.

This year, The Emerging Dietitian has somewhat been put on hold whilst I finished the final year of my dietetic degree. Well guess what? I have finally finished my degree! Ten years in the making and I’m finally here. I’m awaiting my final results next week and then I can officially call myself an Accredited…

Celebrating them.

A few weeks ago we celebrated Fathers’ Day with our immediate family. It was a seemingly low-key lunch at home, but there was a little extra TLC added in to show Alex and my Father-in-Law how much we appreciate and love them. So onto the menu. My in-laws provided the entree. They had been to…

Emilia’s Farmers Market

Today is my first official day back at university (edit: I started this post last week). The final year of a total of 9 years spent here. I feel old just typing that sentence. It is also Emilia’s first full day at childcare. I’m in a world of emotions. Or for those of you whom…

A few staple recipes.

Over at The Emerging Dietitian HQ it has been a whirlwind of cooking, cleaning (seriously how much mess can a tiny human make?!?), working and preparing for the changes which are upon us in the coming weeks. I’ve fallen into a little bit of a routine with our meals. This isn’t a bad thing, simply…

The cake smash.

I started this post in December but with Christmas, New Year and Emilia’s birthday, it got put on hold. I’ve finally got around to telling you all about the cake smash. Let’s begin… I am still in denial about the fact that my baby is almost one. So much so that I’m in denial about…

It’s a piece of cake: the update on Father’s Day.

Did I leave your tastebuds tantalising from my last blog post? I hope so. A quick update on the rest of our Father’s Day celebrations. On the Friday night, we had Alex’s immediate family over to watch the footy. I had just returned from having two root canals done that morning so Alex’s mum kindly…

The three part Father’s Day installment.

Alex is a wonderful dad. Beyond wonderful. So really, it only makes sense that we made his first official Father’s Day a rather decadent and drawn out affair. One which revolves around food. Naturally. We started off our week with an early celebratory trip to the beautiful Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove. The one upside…

Slow days + self care.

I feel as though my writing has changed recently. Although this has always been a creative outlet for me, I find more solace in this dedicated alone time. It’s an opportunity for me to share what’s going on inside this brain of mine.

Pancakes for two.

I woke up this morning with a real hankering for pancakes. I quickly brushed this off. ‘Don’t be ridiculous Tess. Alex is on nightshift. All of this effort with a 6 month old babe for one.’ Then as I was feeding Emilia and trawling through ‘wholemeal spelt pancakes for one’ archives, it dawned on me….

My first Mother’s Day.

If we are going to get technical. This really was my second Mother’s Day. This time last year, I knew Baby H was baking away but my lips were indeed sealed. This year, with our darling Emilia, I knew I wanted to do an elaborate celebration. Not for myself. But to celebrate the incredible mother’s in…
