My kids are stuck in a food rut. All they want to eat is mexican food. I can add taco seasoning to just about anything and all four of my kids will eat it and ask for seconds. All four kids, eating and liking the same meal! That is a rare and precious thing, so […]
This post is sponsored by Dairy Australia Three out of my four kids don’t drink milk. In fact, they would rather eat their cereal dry than add milk to it! Personally I think that is all kinds of wrong (dry cereal? You have to be kidding!), but over the years I’ve learned that it’s much […]
When life gives you apples… um… bake lots of things with apples in them? We were given yet another big bag of apples this week, and since my freezer is already full of apple sauce, and I can’t face cutting, dipping and drying any more apple slices, the only thing left to do is bake […]

I’m still in shock. I thought these ancient […]

There is a collection of recipes that I cook again, and again, and again, If it’s not the same five dinners on high rotation, it’s the same snacks, or the same lunch box fillers that I make every single week. That used to drive me totally bonkers, but not any more. Lately I’ve made a […]
