Vegan Chocolate Chunk Lactation Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Chunk Lactation Cookies {vegan}

We had a new little person join our extended family recently! My younger brother became a daddy for the first time, which makes me the doting aunt, and I am dying to meet her, but alas, they live interstate. So, we made up a care package, filled with the cutest little baby girl clothes, a…

Flourless Peanut Butter Choc Chip Skillet Cookie {vegan, gf}

Flourless Peanut Butter Choc Chip Skillet Cookie {vegan, gf}

We go through a heap of peanut butter in this house! So much. And only two of us eat peanut butter. It’s really about time I started buying it in bulk. Even more so now that we have this skillet cookie on rotation! I had been dreaming of making a skillet cookie for the longest…

Black Bottom Cupcakes {vegan, gf}

Brrr! I don’t recall being this cold in a long time! Winter is finally here, though it’s sunny still. I love how where we live, the seasons start slowly. Often it will be a full month into summer, autumn, winter or spring before the weather really sets in. What that means for today, is that…

My Dad is a great chef. He, like me, enjoys baking cakes, and he’s been tweaking recipes since long before I started. A couple of months ago, he had a lovely slice of chocolate cake at the nursing home where Mum lives. He then emailed to ask if I had a recipe I could recommend.…

Raspberry Almond Muffins with Cacao Nibs and Citrus {gf/df}

I read an article the other day that said that successful people don’t do chores all weekend. I like that! Rather, they socialise and get exercise; in other words, unwind. Recharging is good for the mind, body and soul, and is the real rest that God meant when He instituted the Sabbath as a creation…
