Spinach pumpkin and feta fritters

Pumpkin spinach and feta fritters via

Ah winter. Every year I dread your arrival. I’m not a cold bunny. I don’t deal well with being cold. I’m quite like a hibernating bear actually. I love cooking warming foods, rugging up and bunkering down until the warmth of summer arrives. Ok so a cold day here is just under 20 (celcius) but…

Meal planning

There are a  lot of things that I feel badly about doing when I was little now that I’m a Mum. A great deal of them are food-related. I actually feel very badly for what I must have put my poor mother through with my fussy eating. For every night that I whinged when you…

The capsule kitchen

Saturday morning, 5.15: got out of bed, wiped my bleary eyes, jumped in the shower and headed outside to start setting up. The sun has barely poked its head above the horizon and someone started walking up the driveway. I literally hadn’t even put a table up let alone started bringing our mountains of stuff…

Glass jars in the kitchen

Ooh these are just too cute. It was a breakfast buffet in Buenos Aires right at the beginning of a five-week trip around South America and Mum and I just had to have them. Every morning for the four days we were there, we squirrelled them away like we were 007 on a secret mission…

Ask Claire take one

Last Friday night, I put on a bit of lip gloss, dimmed the lights, poured myself a glass of wine (which is pretty rare for me) and settled down for… my first live Q&A session via Facebook Live. Wow it was awesome. I loved it! So many great questions and I loved being able to…

How not to make your pantry Pinterest-worthy

I think it took me about 9 months the second time around. If you have kids you may or may not know what I’m talking about but this is how long it took me to come out of my crazy newborn stage after having Cooper. I didn’t really realise I was in it at the…

Bye bye 2016

2016. What a year. Amazing highs and some rather low lows but if I had to sum it up – it was pretty awesome. I have grown so much. I have learned so much. I’m really proud of myself and of my friends and family for all they’ve achieved this year. I could probably write a…

Wholefood gingerbread biscuits

Have you ever turned up at an occasion to find someone wearing exactly the same outfit as you? Maybe you’re already feeling a little anxious as you enter the room. You scan the party for people you know and instead of spotting your pose, your eyes land on someone and for a split second you…

Turmeric latte

It started with an Aldi trolley. Well no actually it started with some silent cursing at my husband for putting roof racks on the car which meant I wouldn’t fit in the car park and had to park out on the street which means quite a walk with a full trolley. If you just want…

Christmas ideas 2016

I know you've been hearing a bit from me recently but truth be told, that was past me - all the posts you've been reading recently were written before little Cooper was born. I scheduled them ahead of time to give myself a bit of a break. While I'm not quite up to making and shooting recipes just yet (I made these in August!) I am missing rambling away about food to you. So what are today't ramblings about - maple butter biscuits - an easy, tasty and quick recipe that's perfect for Christmas gift giving. Did you know that with most biscuit doughs, you can make them ahead of time and freeze them then just defrost, bake and eat/gift. With most biscuits taking less than 12 minutes in the oven that means you can be eating fresh biscuits not long after you have the thought of them. It also means you always have emergency gifts on hand as long as you keep a little supply of wrapping like cellophane bags (my favourite!) and string. There's something about shortbread-like biscuits that just screams Christmas to me. Maybe it's the dusting of icing sugar reminding me of a white Christmas I hope to have one day. I've had one and it was pretty amazing but I'd love to have one with the boys some day. A little word of warning - when you whip the butter and maple syrup together you will create a pretty irresistable looking spread. I recommend eating before you make these so as to avoid grabbing something (a scone or crumpet would be rather nice) and spreading it with the maple butter. Mmm butter Sorry I digress. My brain is split in a million pieces at the moment and I'm writing this in a miraculous moment of overlapping naps. Now to see if I can knock any chores of the list. Enjoy!
