Quick Waffels

Just about every time I visit my Mum we have either pancakes with blue berries or waffles with blue berries and ice cream. With Mother’s Day just around the corner why not treat your Mum to some home made waffles?

This recipe is an oldie but a goodie and anyone with a waffle maker can master this one.

Chia Pudding & Cherry Berry Bliss Smoothie Bowl

I love fresh fruit for breakfast, but sometimes depending on the time of year you just can’t get the good stuff like Cherries, Raspberries, Mangoes etc. So where the season fails me, the freezer section at the grocery store does not! I love buying frozen fruit, especially living in North Queensland where it’s always a thousand degrees hot, using frozen fruit is the best way to start the day on a cool note.

One of my favourite ways to prepare said fruit for breakfast is as a smoothie. They are quick to make and eat (which is great when you have to be at work early in the morning) and best of all they are filling. When I have more time I like to make a bit more of an effort and create smoothie bowls. This is one of my latest creations. Let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂

Prep time – 5 mins + over night for the Chia pudding, Serves 1.

ANZAC Biscuits with a Twist

Here in Australia it is the ANZAC day long weekend, and for us Aussies that means 3 things. First and foremost it’s an opportunity to honour our fallen soldiers and those still serving to protect our country. Secondly it’s a public holiday which is never a bad thing, and lastly it’s the perfect time of year to make ANZAC biscuits.

To me these biccies have to be soft and chewy, golden brown and super sweet, and that’s just how this recipe turns out.

To add a little bit of a twist, and to appease the chocolate fanatics out there half of this recipe was turned into chocolate chip ANZAC biccies 🙂

Pomelo Cupcakes

The nice thing about citrus fruits is that even when they have gone a bit soft and you wouldn’t eat them fresh out of their skin, they are still perfect for baking!

A few weekends ago one of my best friends gave me a few delicious home grown pomelos. I’d never had them before so I was pretty keen to give them a try and to find something yummy to add them into. So tonight after I had finished dinner and wanted something sweet I decided to try putting these citrusy delights to the cupcake test, and oh boy oh boy am I happy with how these turned out!

Pomelos are kinda like a grapefruit in flavour, not too sweet but also not too sour. If you wanted to you could substitute the pomelo in this recipe for your favourite fruit. The basic mixture is very versatile and would even taste great with chocolate chips thrown in. So don’t feel like you have to use pomelos, but if you have them I would recommend giving this one a try 🙂

Prep time – 10mins, Cooking time – 20/25mins, Makes 9
