Thermomix recipe: Chocolate custard


There’s one thing I’ve learned while doing this Thermomix challenge, and that’s that Thermomix owners are quite passionate people. They love their machines. I’m starting to get why they do, but I’m afraid I don’t think I’ll ever be that person. I’m 15 days in and I’m glad I’m using it more. I’ve made two…

In the Thermomix: Pretty delicious scone recipe


I already have a great scone recipe that I love. It’s only got three ingredients and it makes the best scones ever, so I was a little pessimistic in trying the Thermomix recipe. We had friends over so while Hubby chatted I quickly put the ingredients into the Thermomix, switched on the oven and went…

Are you suffering from weekenditis?


Brought to you by TFE Hotels. When’s the last time you had a really, really, REALLY good weekend? You know the ones where you’ve actually done a great mix of good things; a bit of feet-up-and-relaxing, a touch of consuming good food {and perhaps a little bit of wine}, and a dash of good times…

A weekend of firsts


I’ve always known that when Lacey started losing her teeth that it was going to be a downhill slide into big-girlhood, and that it would be an emotional roller-coaster for me, her mama. A week ago she told me that her tooth was ‘wibbly’ and she’s told the same a few times before {only to…

In defence of the phone-haters club


Last night I shared an article on Facebook that I read and thought was quite funny, and true. I went to bed straight after and didn’t think much of it. At 2am Luella woke for a few hours, so I checked my phone and the share had exploded. Lots of passionate opinions and views were…

Remember those quizzes that we used to do in magazines when we were teens and totally hip and happening {read: also totally angst-y and annoying}? I loved those quizzes so I’m bringing a bit of that fun here today. Let’s figure out what…

Thank you


I’ve been meaning to do this for days now, and am finally stealing a moment to write it. What a wild ride these past handful of days have been. Late last month I launched my App, Little Moments by Fat Mum Slim. Looking back I didn’t have any expectations on how well it would be…

In the Thermomix: Quirky Cooking’s Creamy Chicken & Brown Rice Soup


I love a good chicken soup, and trust me, there can be some bad ones. My favourite chicken soup is this one which I adapted for the Slow Cooker. Well, that was until I met this one. I put off cooking this chicken soup for a while, because it seemed too complicated with it’s almonds…

How to make friends*


*when you’re 34, have moved to a new town and know nobody Two years ago last month we moved all the way up north from Sydney. Looking back it was such a brave, leap of faith. I don’t usually do big chance-y things like that. I was talking to Hubby about it the other day…
