Hello Lovelies. How was your week? Mine was full of the usual ups and downs… a few high points, which I will tell you about in a moment, and more than a few episodes that left me shaking my head in disbelief, wondering if this is normal motherhood. Let me explain.
How has your week been? I felt like a giddy school girl working on my post last week and couldn’t be happier with how well it has been received. So a hearty thank you to all of you beautiful people who are celebrating this wonderful new season with me.
My mind is brimming with new recipe ideas and I have been in the kitchen testing them on unsuspecting visitors. Last weekend I made the most delicious Sticky Date cupcakes with butterscotch sauce. The good news about these sweeties is that they are completely refined sugar free and you would never know it. I thought they would make the perfect wintery treat now that the days are finally starting to cool down. So, keep an eye out for the recipe in coming weeks.
Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to spend a few minutes with me. I am so happy you are here. It has certainly been a long time. My last blog post was in December 2018 and it feels like an age has passed since then. I cannot tell you how excited I am to be back. As with all of life, the journey has been long and winding with many twists and turns.
Well hello lovely friends, it’s so wonderful to be back. I needed to take a few weeks off blogging to give myself a little creative breathing space. I enjoyed slowing down and even managed to do a few recipe shoots, so keep an eye out in the New Year for some delicious Summery baked treats.
Hello Lovelies. How was your weekend? Thanks for your patience with this blog post. I’d hoped to get it done earlier, but needed to zip into the hospital with one of my dear daughters. Hubby is also sick in bed with the flu and I am ignoring my mountainous pile of washing to get this done. All is well with my daughter now and the children are all fed and settled… well, for the next five minutes anyway. So let’s see how far I get telling you about our city escape.
Good morning sweet friends. Are you enjoying this much needed rain and cooler days in your neck of the woods? Our family ventured on a road trip to Sydney this week, where the blustery winds and heavy rains have apparently settled in for a while. Not to be daunted, we braved the Manly ferry into the city today which was quite an adventure, full of wild seas, traumatised children and spew buckets, but I will tell that story next week!
Hi de ho. Here it is, my salute to Summer. Well, not technically Summer yet….Ok Spring. I am finally putting my face forward to the heat, sweat and humidity that awaits. I will do my best to embrace the long hot days ahead without complaint, but I make no promises. I will even try to smile about it. To prove my point I will inspire you with pleasant thoughts of Summer fruits, dripping ice cream and happy children playing.
Good morning sweet friends. Have I got a treat for you today. These cupcakes are so delicious, the first mouthful will stop you in your tracks. More of an experience really, not just a mere piece of cake. A velvety chocolate cupcake topped with a swirl of silky smooth coffee swiss meringue buttercream and expresso ganache. Well and truly a next level cupcake.
