Spiced Apple Chips

We are in the most beautiful Autumn weather at the moment! My street is full of bursts of yellow, red and orange with tourists posing in the street for their photos. I feel so very grateful to live in such a beautiful part of the world. You can see a photo from around the corner here. Autumn not only means cooler nights, beautiful days but also delicious apples!! We have all had apple pie. And apple crumble. But have you ever made your own Spiced Apple Chips? Aren’t they pretty! I had  ...

Self Care Report Card #1

Somehow, we are already a quarter of the way into the year! A change in season. An absolute change in weather.

For those following along, I have been doing (well at least attempting to do) weekly self care posts to help busy mums like you and me, find do-able things to promote self care. If you  ...

Gluten Free Pea Fritters (vegan and nut free)

Which came first… the recipe or the blog? I feel a little giggly and silly writing a pea fritters recipe for my blog that is called Pea Fritters! 3 whole years ago, I had a sudden light bulb moment over dinner. “I’m going to start a blog!” I declared!

But this little blog of mine needed a name…. I looked  ...

Find Your Perfect Soy Sauce Alternative

You don’t have to miss soy sauce anymore! Today, I am going to help you find your perfect soy sauce alternative! When our family first started trying to figure out our kids allergies and intolerances, we went on some pretty restrictive elimination diets. Trying to find safe and delicious ways to flavour our dinners felt really tricky, especially when both soy AND wheat/gluten were off the menu. It seemed like there was no soy sauce alternative! But over time, I discovered there were a  ...

What My Daughter Is Really Getting Out Of Swimming Lessons

We recently started our two kids at swimming lessons, like most other Australian parents do. We are an island country and a seriously hot one too (did you hear about our recent heat wave? 50 degrees some days! 50!). Both hubby and I figure it’s the best thing to do for the kids. You know, teach them about water safety, get them comfortable and confident. So off we went to our local indoor pool.  The kids were excited! We were excited! We got our new swipe card and headed off to get  ...
