With the festive season fast approaching, nothing is more comforting than a kitchen filled with the smell of buttery baked goodies. These biscuits are deliciously addictive with a soft crumbly texture; rich, buttery flavour; all encased in sweet, creamy chocolate.
The biscuits themselves are not too sweet and balance out the chocolate exterior to perfection. You can even get the kids involved by making different shapes or decorating with sprinkles or icing, making them the perfect Christmas treat and a wonderful handmade gift for those you love. Plus they’ll fill the house with the most delicious smell whilst baking in the oven!
Boo-yah Halloween is almost upon us! 👻 To get you in the spooky mood, our resident food blogger, Laura Ford has whipped up these scary-good Pumpkin Muffins that are simple, yummy and perfect for that Halloween party you’ve got planned. Aromatically spiced, these muffins offer a hint of sweetness from the pumpkin and dried cranberries and are a great way to get some veggies in amongst the lollies and sweets. By using olive oil, the batter is extra moist and light and can be adapted to suit your taste. For example, feel free to add any dried fruits, nuts or chocolate chips you like to switch up the flavour. Pass up the spiced pumpkin latte! 🎃
Our resident foodie, Laura Ford, has been at it again – this time she’s turned her skills to pizzas. Of sorts. If you’re a pizza fan (and let’s face it who isn’t?) then these Homemade Pizza Scrolls are both super fun and easy to make, especially with the kids! The scroll base is quick to whip up and makes the softest scrolls. You can use a different combination of veggies, cheese or meat to make lots of yummy flavour combinations. 🍕🍕🍕
Looking for a quick, tasty winter warmer dish that isn’t your typical soup/stew? These cheesy broccoli and bacon stuffed potato skins from our resident food blogger, Laura Ford, are a fantastic family-friendly meal.

If you’re not the broccoli and bacon type, Laura recommends changing up the flavours by adding corn, cooked chicken breast, tuna, lean ham, capsicum, tomato, kale or spinach. You can even try making this more gourmet with blue cheese, parmesan or a vintage cheddar. Get in our bellies!
