Chocolate-Dipped Anzac Biscuits

Chocolate-Dipped Anzac Biscuits

This is my take on the traditional Anzac biscuit. The cookies themselves are wheat and refined sugar-free, with decadent dark chocolate bases to make them that little bit richer. They are completely addictive, taste like something from your childhood and are 100% perfect with a cup of tea. These are…

Tokyo Travel Kit

Tokyo Travel Kit

I’m seasoned at packing for a weekend away, but a long haul flight always takes a little more consideration. We’re heading to Japan this week, and I’ve aimed for a pared-back approach to my kit list. With luggage checked in, Mr Mini Robin will accompanying me on board. He’s small…

Thinking Space

The Benefits Of Hand Washing

The Benefits Of Hand Washing

One my favourite revelations about country living is the seemingly more abundant free time available. When you’re not tempted to pop out every half an hour you have far more hours in your day, not to mention a greater sense of resourcefulness. Then there’s the reality of relying on a…
