Steak with Moroccan Seasoning


  It’s quick, easy and not to mention dense and moist.  This Coconut Cake will keep the kids happy after school this afternoon, and it may even give you a few minutes to yourself with a cuppa as they polish it off. Coconut Cake Ingredients: 1 Cup Coconut (dessicated or […]

Coconut Cake


I try really hard to make meals the whole family will eat.  Sometimes I break the rules, like on the weekend if I’m trying to have a Date Night At Home with Mr8.  That’s when I’ll make something the kids really want for dinner, set them up with a movie […]

Savoury Italian Grilled Chicken with Marinated Vegetables



  I found a great little recipe for Shredded Beef Chimichangas the other day, but it seemed unnecessarily fiddly to me, so I changed it up a bit and converted it to a Crockpot Recipe.  I’m in love with my Crockpot at the moment and I’m building a collection of […]

Shredded Beef Chimichangas

Chicken Tacos


  I don’t usually fuss too much with desserts on weeknights, but Peach Cobbler is a sinch to throw together while you get dinner ready, so there’s really no excuse not to make it, now is there?!  Oh, and it contains fruit, so you could even try arguing that it’s […]

Peach Cobbler


As much as I love to hide myself away in the kitchen trying out new recipes, on busy days I love the convenience of turning on the crockpot and walking away.  This recipe for Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken will tickle your taste buds and have you coming back for more. […]

Sweet Slow Cooker Sesame Chicken



  Sometimes you have to tinker with a recipe to get it just the way you like it.  And that’s how I’ve been spending my Saturdays, tinkering with my Crockpot Yoghurt recipe so I can get it just the way we like it.  For a start, milk comes in 3 […]
