Healthy homemade chocolate digestives recipe

10 healthy-ish lunchbox biscuits to pack

10 healthy-ish lunchbox biscuits to pack

I love the word 'healthy-ish'. It implies that while you might not be getting things 100% right, at least you're trying. Which pretty much sums up a post about making lunchbox biscuits. Look, a kid has got to eat something. While I applaud the parents whose children...

Oat, LSA and chia biscuits (olsac biscuits are a thing)

Oat, LSA and chia biscuits (olsac biscuits are a thing)

In my mind, these chia biscuits are known as Olsac bickies. If linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds can get an LSA moniker, then surely my chia biscuits can be called Olsacs. Whatever we call them (and, let's face it, Olsac is never going to be a thing), these oat...

These are the BEST peanut butter biscuits

These are the BEST peanut butter biscuits

I'll admit I have a tendency to get a bit gushy about a good biscuit, but these are lit-er-ally (as my tween says 127 times a day) the BEST peanut butter biscuits, bar none. The caps are needed. I almost called them the "BEST peanut butter biscuits EVER", but even I...

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...

How we handle drugs and alcohol at teen parties

Teen parties are terrifying. While in most states it's actually not illegal to serve alcohol to minors in your home*, it's not what most parents want. I don't know about you, but I have zero interest in young kids getting smashed in my backyard. Which is why, despite...
