Sweet and decadent Chocolate Fudge Mooncakes for a fun twist on a classic Chinese Mooncake. Recipe with step-by-step photos.
Asian Cakes and Desserts
So my kids are not the biggest fans of Asian cakes and desserts. Which I can somewhat understand because, when I was their age, it was hard to tempt me with a cake filled with durian paste too 😉 Plus, my parents ran a bakery selling French-style and Australian breads and pastries, so given the choice, I would always opt for a Cream Bun or Chocolate Eclair over something filled with red beans.
Make dinner in about 30 minutes with this totally delicious Satay Chicken Stir Fry which uses peanut butter, creamy coconut milk and your favourite vegetables. You could also substitute the chicken for beef or tofu.
Minimalism with Kids
In the past 12 months or so, I have been on a mission to declutter our home. I have long aspired to have a minimalist home (I blame Pinterest) but I always felt that minimalism was incompatible with raising children.
These Peanut Butter Spider Cookies are a cute and chocolatey Halloween treat! Recipe with step-by-step photos.
Peanut Butter Spider Cookies
I was scrolling through Pinterest one evening, looking for Halloween baking ideas, when I came across these awfully cute Peanut Butter Spider Cookies from A Spicy Perspective. Not only are they adorably sweet, but they combine two of my favourite loves – peanut butter cookies and Lindt Lindor chocolate truffles.
These No-Bake 5 Ingredient Granola Bars are soft and chewy, and just the thing to make for a snack on the go. Perfect for lunch boxes.
Snack Ideas for Kids
When it comes to snack time for the children, I frequently reach for easy options like cut up fruit, yoghurt, or maybe rice crackers spread with butter and Vegemite. If we have friends visiting during morning or afternoon tea, I love to make a batch of pikelets which are always a hit with the children.
