Recipe: pork fajitas

The other night I watched one of my favourite TV chefs - Fast Ed - create a recipe for family fun with some quick and healthy Pork Fajitas. A tasty twist on a Mexican favourite, his recipe caters for all taste buds – you can mix and match ingredients to your heart’s content… Check out his work here.

Review: Ricardo's

I'm slowly making my way towards a) blogging about 10 cafes in Canberra that I have attended with a toddler and b) the end of my second pregnancy! Ricardo's in Jamison brings me to cafe number  six… if you are interested you can check out my previous reviews here: Autolyse, Me & Mrs Jones, The Cupping Room, Good Brothers and The Flute.

Recipe: Drying Fruits at Home

Dried fruit? Isn’t that kind of high in sugar? Well, the short answer is yes, but the long answer is that in small doses – such as in a nut-based snack mix, or sprinkled on top of a high-fat plain yogurt  for a sweet dessert – dried fruit can be a welcome addition to your diet.

Recipe: Homemade Shortbread

A lot of people make these easy, buttery biscuits as homemade Christmas presents. Some people may make them with chocolate chips worked into the dough. I say go all out - make a batch - and then add them to my chocolate bark recipe, which I created for the Sweet Swap!

Recipe: The Sweet Swap

When I participated in the inaugural 'Sweet Swap' last year I knew that I would be keeping my ear to the ground and participating in it again when it rolled around this year! Last year the Sweet Swap had over 58 food, parent and lifestyle bloggers participate and I'm keen to hear the wrap up on this year.

Motherhood: What's in my hospital bag?

I'm due to give birth in a month's time - and so I thought that it would be appropriate to pull my hospital bag together now (even though I was two weeks over due with Mr Moo). I packed a lot into my bag the first time round that never saw the light of day, so I thought that I've show you what I think should be packed into a hospital bag (from the perspective of a second time mum).

The 2014 Liebster Awards

The lovely Samara, over at BlondeInk, nominated me for the 2014 Liebster Awards. Basically I answer the questions she gives me, I then write my own questions and nominate a bunch of other bloggers to participate. I love the blogging community in general - but more specifically the fun little group we have going in Canberra at the moment.

Recipe: chicken, pumpkin, potato one-pot-wonder

You all know that I love a good one pot wonder and this one is quiet verstile as it can easily be made with chicken or made into a vegetarian dish - as it is just packed full of veggies. And I often find if everything is mixed together, little mouths (and mouths of husband's) are more likely to give it all a go!

Review: The Flute

Some of you will be familiar with the lovely Flute bakery in Fyshwick. I frequented this store quiet regularly when I used to work in Fyshwick and it was always a pleasant experience - but I wonder if this was because I would always come in grab my lunch (and a cake or two) and then leave? Can you shop at The Flute and eat your cake too?

Motherhood: Are you serious?

I really just need to get this off my chest. I was rasied to always show respect to older people, and I do…but I just wished that I had said something to this Narky Old Lady at the supermarket the other week...
