Super quick wholefood vanilla cupcakes

Super quick wholefood vanilla cupcakes via www.clairekcreations.com

I’m a celebration cake kinda girl (read on for the recipe for super quick wholefood vanilla cupcakes). I love making Birthday cakes and even better if there’s a theme. Now I’m no pro, there aren’t any sculptured edible decorations (well apart from the monkey I made for my older son’s 1st Bday cake) but I…

Why exercise for me has nothing to do with weight or fitness

I used to sweat it out at the gym. I was there at 5.30am waiting for them to open their doors so I could run on the treadmill before my 6am spin class so I had time to get home, shower, have breakfast and get to work. I had a heart rate monitor but I…

Before I became a mum, I was going to be an ‘earth mother.’ Not in a hippy, wear cloth clothes and let my armpit hairs grow sort of earth mother but I was going to do everything naturally. Everything would be organic. I would make every meal that passed through their beautiful little cherub lips.…

Hello Fresh saved my week

Hello Fresh via www.clairekcreations.com

Hello Fresh saved my week that started pretty sh!t! Sundays are usually the day I do our meal planning and prep. They’re also usually the day I get to laze in bed while my husband gets the kids up. You can only ever really say usually with kids can’t you? Always doesn’t seem to be…

Decluttering kids toys

Decluttering kids toys Before we started decluttering kids toys, I used to have this argument with my husband… Husband: (after cleaning up the toys for 30 minutes) ‘They have too many toys we need to get rid of some.’ Me: ‘You don’t understand. I need so many toys to keep them entertained.’ So then I’d…

A mum with anxiety

Being a mum with anxiety

RUOK? Are you ok? Are you okay? I am a mum with anxiety. Wow I don’t think I’ve actually written those words before. I may seem to the outside world that I totally have my shit together. I may look ‘put together,’ people may ask me how I ‘do it all,’ and you might think…

How to use soap berries or soap nuts

How to use soapberries or soapnuts I’m a massive nerd at heart. Nothing gets my little heart beating more than experimenting with something that I don’t really think will work, only to have it work brilliantly. Over the years I’ve been on a bit of a quest to ditch the chemicals in our lives. Skincare…

Spinach pumpkin and feta fritters

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…

Quick and easy salad dressings

Salad used to be a dirty word for me. It was the days of the iceberg lettuce, halved cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber and red onion smothered in some sort of vinaigrette. You know – the type of salad you used to get on the side – probably still do at some – when you order…

Shredded beef

Slow cooked shredded beef via www.clairekcreations.com

The slow cooker is my best friend. Alright so I might exaggerate slightly but you’ve probably heard me say before just how much I like it. How can you not like something that you can literally put two ingredients in, turn it on and walk away then come back to it 8 hours later and…

Simple Substitutes

I’ve mentioned before why I’m not a huge fan of supermarkets. Tantruming kids (mine), waaay too much choice, clutter, buying things that weren’t on the list… want me to go on? I grocery shop once-a-month and pop in about once a week to pick up some milk with cash. My system is pretty good but…
