Magic Disappearing Blueberry Muffin Recipe

When I made these amazing blueberry muffins I was in serious cake bliss. You see they smelled SO GOOD! Then I made the mistake of breaking one in half for the "photo shoot". Once the gooey jammy blueberry innards were exposed there was no going back! I popped one half of the sacrificed blueberry Continue reading

This time of year I like to have an abundance of treats on display or nibbling. It's a personal thing, but I like to have the lolly jar full, stone fruit in the fruit bowl, nuts on the table and some lovely baked treats on hand.

Coconut Slice

Coconut Slice

For me this is the ultimate childhood retro slice! It was one of my favourites as a child, and mums seemed to make it for school lunches, fetes and any “bring a plate” occasions.

This morning I am sure I heard the sound of all the mums in oz, letting out a collective sigh of relief, as their little darlings went back to school.  Winter school holidays are never my pick of vacations.
