She’s here.

Emilia Joy completed our little family on Saturday 31st December at 9.15pm weighing 3.065kg and measuring 49cm. To say we are a little bit smitten would be the under statement of the new year. We were lucky enough to view the New Year’s eve fireworks from our hospital room. I whispered in our sweet babe’s…

The anniversary brownie and the let’s start planning dinner…

Last week, my beautiful in-laws celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. Can we all just take a moment to bask in how incredible that milestone is? Alex and I have only been married for less than two years and greatly admire the love, commitment and adoration his parents share for each other. As part of their anniversary party,…

Happy Birthday to me

So the emerging dietitian turned one a few weeks ago. A quaint little milestone. It’s been interesting to reflect how my blog has evolved over the past year. Albeit a little bit quiet for the last few months. I’ve grown from a nervous cook to a confident baker within the space of a year. Whilst…

The weeks that were..

Hi there folks, The last two weeks have been rather lack lustre for me. I’m heading into week 8 at uni, which means it’s crunch time. So naturally, I’ve turned to blogging and baking. Surely you’re all used to my procrastination methods by now. In terms of pregnancy cravings, Bubba H is already taking after…

The condolence, the schnitzel and the procrastination cake…

Today I made two of the most decadent flourless chocolate cakes by the genius that is Emma Galloway. You may remember my previous blog post about my most successful cake to date. Of course it was another one of Emma’s fabulous recipes. So why two of these cakes? Well initially I set out to bake…

Bun(s) in the oven

Hi there everyone! Sorry you haven’t heard from me in a while. Life has been a little bit hectic recently.. From uni exams, to the passing of my grandfather, to holidaying in Spain for a month and for those of you who are unaware.. We are also expecting Baby H very early next year (!!!!!)…

Procrastibaking. My favourite past time.

Well hello there. It’s that time of year again, dreaded SWOTVAC. So whilst my colleagues bury their heads in their books,  I decided to bake and blog because really what else does one do when faced with a large amount of study and two looming exams? I keep telling myself as I watch the Food…

Give pie and love

To all of the beautiful mums out there (or soon-to-be mums), Happy Mother’s Day. I hope your loved ones spoilt you and made you feel like the incredible being you are. We started the celebrations on Saturday evening by having my beautiful in-laws over for dinner. The main was delicious but really lets talk about…

Jelly cakes for Aunty Doss

It’s been a big few weeks of change for me recently. The end of an era in the sense for not just 1, nor 2, nor 3 things. When change happens, I crave comfort. Comfort in the things that I know are stable, homely and aren’t disappearing anytime soon. For me that’s food. Baking in…

The Silverbeet Situation.

For those of you who are not well aware yet, I am a fruit and vegetable leek geek [seriously I couldn’t help myself] #sorrynotsorry. I’m a 2 & 5, eat-a-rainbow, eat your greens, get them in anyway you can kind of gal. When my best friend told me she bought a Nutri Ninja and is…

Fibrous buns

So Easter is upon us. How did that even happen? I feel like I blinked and already a quarter of this year has passed. Crazy business. As a slight procrastination technique festive tactic I decided to tackle the infamous hot cross bun. I couldn’t help it though. My inner dietitian took over and of course I made wholemeal…

The icing on the cake…

Happy Monday Tuesday everyone. Has this long weekend confused everyone or is it just me? Regardless, I hope you are feeling refreshed for the week ahead and aren’t suffering from mondayitis tuesdayitis. Yesterday was Alex & my first wedding anniversary. It provided me with yet another excuse to post a soppy, romantic post on social…
