10 really good lunchbox fritters

When I mentioned our penchant for lunchbox fritters to a friend, she was very confused. She's never, ever packed a fritter for her kids' lunch. "Aren't they awful cold?" she asked. The answer is not at all. Lunchbox fritters are delicious packed straight into an...

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...

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...
