I’m all about the hippy hipster healthy food at the moment. Here are three important things to know about chia seeds:
1. They’re oh-so-healthy
They’re made up of protein, fat and dietary fibre. Plus there’s a heap of minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron, and phosphorous.
2. They’re grown in Australia.
Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oi oi oi! (more…)
This week I came on to Clever Muffin, clicked on Recipe Index and was puzzled when I couldn’t find this recipe. This recipe, as in the one I’m currently writing, which I’m going to go out and say is game-changing for me.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner there a lot of amazing recipes springing up. I have had this red velvet cake waiting in the wings for a while now. Unsure when it would be appropriate to share it and all its quirkiness.

In this case if you like clowning around. May I suggest red velvet MONSTER cake! (more…)

It’s because I’ve turned the big three-oh. (more…)
If you like peanut butter you’re going to love these chocolate chip cookies. They’re full of that peanut butter and chocolate taste that YOU love.
