Chocolate oat cookies with ginger

I must admit I got a bit excited when I saw my Secret Recipe Club assignment for December. Although I like e-meeting and finding new bloggers, I love being assigned to a blogging friend and this month it was Jess from Inquiring Chef. If you’ve never visited her you must, I insist. Jess is a […]

Gluten free lime and blueberry cake with coconut

I love catering my own events but what I struggle a bit with is dietary requirements. I don’t think I’m too bad at gluten free now – there are so many options out there – but egg-free I struggle with when it comes to desserts. My poor egg-intolerant friend had to miss out on dessert […]

Crusty Italian bread

Do you remember last month when I said that I was going to make more of an effort to make challenging recipes for my Secret Recipe Club posts? I was going to be really organised and not leave them to the last minute. That lasted all of one month. I know to a lot of […]

Chocolate salted caramel thumbprints

Back into the jar of French salted caramel we delve. I was staring at the jar one morning, day dreaming about what to do with it when my one-track mind turned to chocolate. The recipe must involve chocolate and there must be a lot of salted caramel. I wanted something that you could bite into […]

Pumpkin and quinoa sourdough

One snack Master Ollie loves is toast. Mum says that he must surely be sick of peanut butter toast by now but I do mix things up with avocado and Vegemite as well. Seeing as I know he loves bread I thought I’d do a bit of experimenting to boost the goodness. Celia from Fig […]

Strawberry Danish braid

I’m back! I am inspired, re-adjusted an very excited to get back into blogging because I sure have missed it. I’ll tell you all about what I’ve been up to later in the week but for now I am here to share something that as I bit into it I thought ‘it’s like biting into […]

Baked beignets

Last week I got to do something I had wanted to do for a very very long time. Ever since I started Claire K Creations back in 2010, I have wanted to attend a ProBlogger conference and meet Darren Rowse, the man behind the book ProBlogger which started me off all those years ago. I’m […]

Triple chocolate brownies with pecans

Would you laugh at me or think me a little nuts if I said that until recently I still had a stash of Easter eggs? It’s not a lie. You see I received my usual haul of eggs this year but as I was breastfeeding and Ollie doesn’t like chocolate (that better change – can’t […]

Caramelised onion focaccia with olives

Will and I were driving home from the city on the weekend and I was happily singing along ‘so don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love…’ to Justin Timberlake’s latest song when I had a thought. I turned to Will and said ‘how do they keep coming up with new songs?’ […]

Blue skies and cheeky babies

This is pretty much how the sky has been every day in the last week. On this particular morning I finally dragged myself out of bed before the boys and went for a solo walk before Will left for work. Last weekend we celebrated the pending wedding of my friend Doc with a bridal shower […]

Strawberry and basil muffins

Please don’t worry. I haven’t gone totally stark raving mad I promise. It all started when I thought I’d challenge myself to try something a little different for this month’s Secret Recipe Club post. I was going to make a dinner-type meal but then time got away from me. It was then I spotted lemon […]

Chocolate gingerbread muffins

Mother’s group has meant so many things to me. Meeting new friends is number one along with the support and encouragement we give each other which is just priceless. We meet once a week at one of our houses and it is one of the highlights of my week. Yet another reason I love Mother’s […]
