Ten ways to use up leftover Easter chocolates

Ten ways to use up leftover Easter chocolates Do you have any Easter chocolates (by some miracle) still hanging around at your place?  Now that the novelty has worn off, my children’s stash does not seem to be decreasing at the rate that I expected.  If you’re not keen on finding chocolate hidden under their […]


I created this recipe out of sheer desperation to attempt to convince my sugary cereal loving child to have a healthier breakfast that was quick and easy for me to prepare. Luckily, it is also a great grab and go meal for adults too, and another lunchbox option for my older kids going back to school this week.

Organic Coleslaw

Growing up I was never really fond of coleslaw and I’m not sure why because these days I can’t get enough of it! I have no idea where this recipe came from but I can tell you it is the best coleslaw you will ever try! I like to serve it as a side salad when having a BBQ or have it on top of baked potatoes. And it accompanies slow cooked pulled pork wraps brilliantly!
