Quick chocolate biscuits that are kinda healthy

Quick chocolate biscuits that are kinda healthy

I made these quick chocolate biscuits this week and I reckon I'll be making them again and again. I modified a recipe from an old cookbook to arrive at something reasonably nutritious. As nutritious as a choccy bickie can be, anyway! What I've ended up with is a quick...

Retro cornflake cookies with a twist

Retro cornflake cookies with a twist

It's very possible that back in the day, your Gran made a version of these cornflake cookies. No doubt she made them petite-sized so you were allowed to eat three, and served them up with a big glass of milk. Some recipes just stand the test of time. Mind you, your...

Wholesome pumpkin rock cakes for happy snacking

Wholesome pumpkin rock cakes for happy snacking

Right now, pumpkin is not in season, so you might be wondering why I'm sharing this pumpkin rock cake recipe. Firstly, it's just so yummy that I can't wait for Autumn. And secondly, you can actually make these pumpkin rock cakes very un-pumpkiny by substituting other...

Sweet-as honey biscuits (like your gran makes)

Sweet-as honey biscuits (like your gran makes)

I don't know if you've noticed, but I'm really old-school when it comes to recipes. I like the granny recipes like these honey biscuits more than anything. Recipes that have been made hundreds of thousands of times over the years by thousands of people. The kind of...

Sophie’s lovely golden syrup biscuits

Sophie’s lovely golden syrup biscuits

My absolute favourite cookbook right now is Sophie Hansen's A Basket By the Door. If you haven't picked up a copy of this gem, snag one immediately. Even if you never make these beautiful golden syrup biscuits, or the apple, fennel and pork sausage rolls or a batch of...

Easy Italian biscuits like our nonna makes

Easy Italian biscuits like our nonna makes

My Italian mother-in-law Maria (FYI 99% of Italian mothers-in-law are called Maria), makes a mighty fine biscuit. She generally has a batch of easy Italian biscuits coming out of the oven on any given day. And by 'batch' I mean around 200 biscotti. Marias don't do...

Cheat’s coconut macaroons to make you swoon

Cheat’s coconut macaroons to make you swoon

At the risk of sounding like I’m writing an 1800’s manual for housewives, I quickly just want to talk about emergency afternoon tea provisions. Now, I’m fully aware that running out of biscuits to serve with a pot of tea is not exactly...

Muesli cookies – or biscuits, but probably cookies

Muesli cookies – or biscuits, but probably cookies

Hmmm, muesli cookies. Is it wrong that ‘cookie’ has entered this Australian's lexicon? It’s just that some ‘biscuits’ are most certainly ‘cookies’. Pretty much anything large and free-form, and definitely anything rocking chocolate chips. Biscuits are nice and...

Choc-chip, oat and zucchini biscuits are good

Choc-chip, oat and zucchini biscuits are good

Zucchini biscuits? To be honest, I’m a little bit meh when it comes to making sweet treats ‘healthy’. Part of me thinks, “just have the darn sweet and move on” and part of me thinks, “how clever to pack some goodness into a biscuit.”  I mean, what the hell...

“I can’t tell my friend that her kid is smoking weed”

A lot of my daughter's friends are using weed. I know this for a fact because I've let the kids smoke at our place when we weren't there. I figured I would rather they were safe in our backyard than bonging on in some park somewhere. If a kid is smoking weed, it's...

50+of the best movies to watch with your teens

Remember when you used to suffer through the 27th showing of Finding Nemo, just to do the whole 'family movie night' thing with the kids? I reckon I can still quote that movie from beginning to end (and we still all laugh at how my middle used to be terrified during...
