I've moved to wordpress

After many years of blogging here on Blogger, I have bitten the bullet and moved to Wordpress. After weeks of tinkering, the new site is finally here! GoodFoodWeek is now on WordPress! The look of the site is similar to the old blogger one, but you will find it has had a bit of freshen up and there are quite a few new fun features.

The site is now mobile friendly! It’s lovely and easy to read on any sized device. And hopefully there won't be any more issues with comments going missing.

If you want to type the address directly into your browser, you will now be heading to www.goodfoodweek.com.au - I can't wait to hear what you think.

Recipe: Monday meal ideas - with thanks to some of my favourite foodie bloggers

The other day I said that I drew some of my meal planning inspiration from Beth from BabyMac - it is so easy to do so when she has her very own meal planning inspiration post on a Monday. But I also draw inspiration from my other friends within the blogging community. Today, I thought that I would show you some of the awesome recipes that I have tried out lately {and let you know the great link ups these peeps participate in}.

Motherhood: Does an escapee breed escapers?

My mother tells a story of when I was approximately two years old and I decided to go and visit the neighbours. I shimmied under our side gate and went and knocked on their door. When they opened the door, I wondered in and proceed to have some afternoon tea with them.

Recipe: Honey Mustard Chicken Pie

The other day, on facebook, I asked you if you had any freezer favourites. And then I shared one of my favourite freezer meals - this delicious honey mustard chicken pie. The recipe makes 3 pies. We normally eat one of the pies straight away and then place two in the freezer {for nights when the sh*t hits the fan and I am unable to do anything in the kitchen}.

Motherhood: the joy of storytelling

I love the written word - books, they float my boat! In fact I've been reading to my sons since they were in the womb! And to coincide with Book Week, Disney Junior The Channel has launched the second season of 'The Book of Once Upon a Time’ - read by Kate Mulvany, Australian playwright and actor. The series is available to watch on Foxtel, channel 709 every weekday night at 7.10pm, or at any time online.

Motherhood: I just want to be a Mum

When I was pregnant with my first son, my Nana took my hand and said that the years that she had her little ones at home {and she had five children} were some of the best years of her life. She had her babies at a time when people didn’t question whether a mother was returning to work – heck, most women never had jobs to return to.

Recipe: Lamb shanks with apricots and prunes

Now September is Spring - and September is right around the corner. But I am yet to see the weather begin to warm up down here in Canberra, in fact it was snowing in my backyard the other day. So I think that we still have some time to whip up a delicious winter warmer - like these lamb shanks with apricots and prunes.

Recipe: Ambrosia Salad

Have you heard of Ambrosia Salad? I didn't know that was what it was actually called 'Ambrosia Salad' until I googled it. I just knew it as the dessert that my Aunt Anita always used to bring to our family gathering in the 80's/90's.

Recipe: Lamb, pumpkin and fetta parcels

When we were growing up my Mum used to make these delicious chicken and tarragon filo parcels. Now that I am a Mum, I love to whip up a filo treat for my family. I often see filo parcels at the butcher, but am disappointed with the quality of the filling or the price point.
