Coconut bread

I first met Bill when I was in Sydney for a pre-wedding girls weekend with Mum and one of my bridesmaids about 5 years ago. The morning was a bit stressful. I’m not a big shopper at the best of times. I know that wedding dress shopping should be super fun but for some reason…

Choc nut and cranberry biscuits

Choc nut and cranberry biscuits via www.clairekcreations.com

Cookies, biscuits, whatever you call them one thing seems to be consistent the world over – everyone has a recipe for a chocolate chip version. Some like them crunchy, some like them chewy for others they must be a bit of both (I think I’m in that camp). My Christmas version of the classic biscuit…

Working for myself has so so many benefits the best of which being that I get to be home with my boys but there are a few things I miss out on. Besides daily interaction with more than a few adults the thing that I really missed was Secret Santa. I remember when I was…

Gingerbread cupcakes

Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year isn’t it? Just so much delicious food. There’s the ham, oh the ham and the turkey (if you can manage not to dry it out – we’ve had a successful few years), the desserts, the canapes. Well yes there are other magical aspects of Christmas…

Maple Butter Biscuits

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 and time to get used to being a…

Low-calorie beef and vegetable meatloaf

Meatloaf seems to have gotten itself a bad name in the past. I mean I guess it’s kind of legitimate seeing as it’s not the prettiest of meals is it? I struggled to make it look presentable for a photo let me tell you. But I had to share it. I found this recipe back…

I have an admission to make. I’m a thief. I can’t help it. When I see fruit hanging from people’s trees, over the fence, unloved and clearly going to hang there until it falls to rot on the ground, I have to rescue it and make it into something delicious. That’s how the original post…

30 minute bread

30 Minute Bread via www.clairekcreations.com

If I see a recipe that looks too good to be true I always have to give it a go. 30 minute bread fell under that category. There was no way in my mind, you could make yeasted bread in 30 minutes. Seriously, bread needs to be loved and cared for and left to rise…

When you host a party, do you like to make the food yourself or do you prefer to buy it ready-made? Even if you said you prefer to buy it, I think you’ll like this recipe. I got it from my cousin years and years ago and I’m not sure if she made it up…

6 Spooktacular Halloween treats

6 spooktacular Halloween treats via www.clairekcreations.com

It’s that time of year again. The ghouls are coming out of hiding and people everywhere are dragging skeletons from their closets. The werewolves are practicing their howling (do they do that on Halloween too?) and the Zombies perfecting their walk. Ok you get the point – tomorrow is Halloween! I had a bit of…

Pumpkin apricot and macadamia balls

I’ll tell you something that is a bit tricky – thinking of Halloween ideas in August. I know a certain Halloween-loving food blogger (Not Quite Nigella) who probably has her Halloween recipes planned by Christmas in July but I’m not that organised when it comes to occasions. After a lot of Googling and brainstorming I…

10 tips to save you money in the kitchen

10 tips to save money in the kitchen via www.clairekcreations.com

I’ll let you in on a little secret – I can be a bit stingy. Not in a really annoying way (ok maybe a bit) but I just hate wasting money. It pains me to see people wasting something that they worked so hard to make. I know ‘each to their own’ but I’m sure…
