    Growing up, we had to start making our own school lunches in about year 3. I guess it’s because I didn’t always eat what was packed for me (jam sandwiches? Yech) and my parent’s figured maybe I’d be more inclined to eat what I packed myself. I don’t really know why, but regardless that’s...

    Chewy chocolate hazelnut cookies

    Ok, so hands up who loves the Cookie Monster? Everyone? I thought so. And who wouldn’t! A monster who pretty well inhales cookies is a monster I can easily relate to. Plus with the token song he’s pretty well a walking musical about cookies! But then we were told cookies were a sometimes food....

    I’ve recently been faced with a dilemma. We visited family over Easter and after spending much time gushing over my love of all things chocolate with my cousin—like mousse cake, cookies and cupcakes—my aunt declared that I was addicted to it. Me? Addicted to chocolate? Well maybe. I mean I really, really love the...

    My dear oreo. Where have you been all my life? I understand that we have had our issues. Growing up so far separated from your magical chocolaty crunch was always destined to make our love difficult. But, please, do not hold my childhood against me. You have ventured across the ocean to the shores...

    I mentioned two posts ago that we had been travelling the world. Well, not quite the world, but Europe. Last time we went to Europe was four years ago. Well and truly before we started eating sugar free! And let me tell you that four years ago, the chocolate in Europe was amazing. So...

    from the side

    I seriously think I must have the most amazing in-laws ever. I always love going to visit them with the rest of the family, relax and spend some good quality time with everyone. But something that appeals to my food-loving brain even more, is that Gareth’s mum always cooks such delicious, healthy food whenever we go...

    smoothie

    I don’t understand milkshakes. Why?! Why have a milkshake if you could have a thickshake? I mean, what’s the point?! Someone, please explain it to me. Thickshakes I understand. They’re like icecream in drinkable form. Smoothies. I kind of get those too. They’re like frozen yoghurt in drinkable form. But milkshakes. Really? It’s like flavoured...

    coconut macaroons from above egg free sugar free nut free dairy free

    We were in Melbourne last year and Gareth ate his first ever macaroon at a cafe we went to that specialised in desserts. He was hooked! Can you tell he is a sweet tooth much? We tried a few different flavours and loved them all. If only we’d known what we were missing out on!...
