Chocolate brownies and strawberry coconut blondies - grain free



I_tried out two recipes from Amazing! Paleo recently; dark chocolate chip brownies and strawberry coconut blondies. I haven't had the best of luck with 'healthy' recipes I find on the internet/in books so I was very happy (as in very very happy because my time and money was not wasted!) when both of these turned out to be hits!

Bargain bin delights - Kraft Vegemite Singles


I_spotted a pack of Kraft Vegemite Singles in the supermarket bargain bin the other week. The idea of teaming cheese and Vegemite in one 'thing' intrigued me. I know cheese and Vegemite are a classic match, but actually making Vegemite flavoured cheese....? It was either going to be really good or really bad and a waste of $2.30.

Apple picking at Bilpin Springs Orchard, Bilpin



The_other week Alan and I headed to Bilpin to relive last year's apple related memories. You can read about the old memories here. Bilpin is a village in the Blue Mountains, one and a quarter hours from Sydney....or if you live in one of the suburbs that people like making fun of, like I do, it's only three quarters of an hour away by car!

Cauliflower pizza



Last_Sunday I ate pizza for the first time in *counts fingers* five years. This particular pizza had a cauliflower base, which resulted in significantly less abdominal bloating than you would expect from a regular flour base pizza. It also tasted surprisingly good!
