Plenty of indulgent blow outs and healthy everyday treats to keep you on track.
I try my best to make desserts as healthy as possible so that they can be enjoyed more often without sacrificing texture or flavour. I have been experimenting a lot with vegan desserts so there are plenty of those.
Every year I make ANZAC biscuits because they are my hubby’s favourite. And each year I think “why don’t I make these more often?”.
I’m a huge fan of macadamias and stocked up big on them on a recent trip to the Northern Rivers region (where they are grown and best sourced fresh!). When I saw that Lorraine had included them in her recipe I went hunting in the pantry for my stash. (more…)

To boost the nutritional value, I’ve snuck in some mashed up avocado with the melted milk chocolate chips and soy milk. Your little one will be none-the-wiser and your secret is safe with me. Promise. (more…)
