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...

Recipe: risotto cakes and smoked chicken

The other night my husband called to ask what I was cooking for dinner. When I replied 'Chicken and rice,' he said that I was letting the team down. I just thought that this was easier to say then risotto cakes and smoked chicken - which I didn't want a negitive reaction to. Chicken and rice is Mr Moo's favourite combo at the moment and I like to think that this is an adult friendly arrangement.

Motherhood: Body image

Ive recently been thinking about how motherhood has effected my thoughts on body image. I'm much happier with my body image - despite the stretch marks and the affects that pregnancy has had on my body.

Review: Good Brothers

Seriously, pregnancy brain is taking over and I think I would forget my own head if it wasn't screwed on! The other week, I took a friend and her little one to check out 'Good Brothers' in Dickson and let's just say that I owe the wait staff in there big time… Thanks for bringing me all my stuff that I left behind.

The second dessert recipe that I wanted to create with the amazing oranges from Redbelly Citrus was a creme brûlée with caramelized blood oranges - I mean arent you just thinking YUM!

Recipe: blood orange panna cotta

How could I used four kilos of delicious blood oranges from Redbelly Citrus without creating a dessert recipe or two? The first recipe that came to mind was a blood orange panna cotta because it meant that I really didnt need to duck down to the shops to pick up any extra ingredients.

Recipe: Mexican pulled chicken and blood orange salsa

I was given an awesome box full of Redbelly Citrus Blood Oranges the other day - and to me they just screamed 'spring summer' and 'dessert'. But it is COLD here in Canberra and things like Blood Orange granita is just something that I'm not up for making right now.

Giveaway: Tommee Tippee for Toddlers

Mr Moo loves to eat - which is awesome, because I know that there are some toddlers out there who don't let much passed their lips. This means that my nappy bag is often full of snacks and a water bottle - and Ive tried a range of 'plastic fantastics', but I am pretty parcial to the Tommee Tippee range.
