4 Apr

Being Australian we call small, sweet baked morsels biscuits. From my extensive blog reading I see that Americans call these items cookies. Let’s chalk it up to cultural differences.

In any case Misses 4 & 6 helped make umpteen of these sprinkle-covered biscuits for their little friends for Easter. It is the recipe I posted on my blog titledĀ Child’s play: super simple sprinkle biscuits even a 4-year-old can make.

All you ned to do is gently push a paddlepop stick into the biscuit prior to baking. Ta da! A bickie on a stick – and as everyone knows, sticks make food taste better.

The best triple chocolate brownie recipe

I bake so often that I am rarely tempted by my own sweet baked goods. Whenever I make a new recipe I try a piece but other than that I can take or leave cakes & things.

A simple sandwich brings happiness

30 Jan

This is my first post on thehungrymum so if you’re reading this – thanks! Hopefully you’ll stick around. I know from extensive blog reading that short’n’sweet is definietly the way to go so that’s going to be my mantra.

Today I hit the gym for the first time in years. Literally, the most exercise I’ve done in the past two years is unpacking groceries. Biggest surprise about gym world: it didn’t completely suck [and trust me, I despise exercising].

After all that sweating I decided a healthy lunch was in order so I made a yummy sandwich using Greek pitta bread. If you’ve never tried this bread stop reading now and track it down. Some delis and supermarkets store it in the chilled section as it keeps the bread fresher. Sidenote: this bread, fried with a smidge of olive oil, is divine when served warm with dips.

On a piece of swoon-worthy Greek pitta I spread beetroot dip [so lush], canned chickpeas [drained & rinsed], zucchini peeled into ribbons and a hint of tasty cheese. I meant to take a photo after a few bites to upload but didn’t get the chance [ahem].

I love trying new sandwich combinations but give me a wrap as my bread of choice any day.

What do you love on a sandwich?
