Thermomix Thursday #5 the bread edition

Thermomix Thursday #5 ‘The bread edition’

Last week I visited the Tip Top bakery’s headquarters and got a fascinating insight into how bread is made.  Bread making has always been something that I thought was way beyond my cooking capabilities until I got my thermomix.  Now nothing really daunts me and I’ve tried out some amazing recipes.  I even made this […] Read more…

Collaroy Beach playground – new and improved

Collaroy Beach playground has got to be my all time favourite on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.  I’m actually not the biggest fan of playgrounds.  After nearly 8 years of pushing kids on swings, trying my best to catch every ‘watch this Mum’ moment, dealing with countless meltdowns and refereeing a few kids ‘scraps’, I am somewhat over them!!

Trying to get back in the zone after the school holidays

It’s the first day back to school today after the school holidays and although I have a sick little one still with me, the house feels eerily quiet.  However, I am totally loving the fact that I haven’t heard one “Muuuuuuuum…..” all morning, and when I’ve sat down, I’ve actually managed to stay sitting for longer […] Read more…
