Apricot Coconut Bliss Balls

Well, here we are, the start of the new school year. I have mixed emotions about this, yet again. Although it is just a day, and my son is only one measly day older than yesterday, the start of a new grade signifies that my little baby is much further away from being a baby. […]

Mustard-Maple Baked Beans, with Goats Cheese

  After a 2 week hiatus I am back. Apologies to those of you who were eagerly awaiting a new recipe in your inbox – I found I was placing unnecessary pressure on myself to get a blog post done. I decided to just let it go. Mind you, it was a difficult decision for […]

Simple Turkish Eggs

As you may already know, I tend to get a little obsessive over things. I have even had a period of egg obsession (as explained in this post) and now I am in the midst of another. Much to my dismay, kitchen time has be very limited of late – I seem to be eating […]
