CRUNCHY ANZAC BISCUITS RECIPE

If there is one thing I'm going to bake today, it is definitely these babies.  This traditional biscuit has minimal ingredients and very easy to make.  Totally yummy with the only debate being whether you prefer crunchy or chewy ANZAC biscuits.  With my preference of crunchy, this recipe totally hits the spot for me.


Ingredients:
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour, sifted
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup brown sugar
125g butter
2 tbs golden syrup
1 tbs water
1/2 tsp bicarb of soda

Makes 24 biscuits

We had such a great meal at Da Noi the other night.

had been there a couple of times before, over 2 years ago, and it's good to see the food and the service are still just as good.

It's official now. We love coffee so much that there is now a dedicated 'coffee roasters' session on the blog's 'eateries by type' tab.

And what better than Industry Beans as our first coffee aficionado review?

Industry Beans are specialty roasters 'working hard to reimagine coffee as a more sensual, pleasurable experience'.

TOASTED MUESLI RECIPE

This recipe comes from one of my good friends who always makes her own. It's hard to know how much sweeter is included with bought muesli varieties, especially toasted muesli.  Making your own is a perfect way to ensure you know what is in it.  This tasty muesli recipe is a great base, where you can add and subtract to tailor to your taste.

Ingredients:
5 cups rolled oats
1 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup raw whole almonds
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1/2 tbps cinnamon
50ml water
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 cups sultanas

MELBOURNE FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL - TASTE PRAHRAN MARKET

163 Commercial Rd, South Yarra

We were invited by Prahran Market to join their special Graze the Market event as part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival.

I loved the concept of this event. We were given a small wooden tasting board to collect morsels of food from various vendors around the market. It was great format to allow guests to experience the market in a very intimate and fun way.

SARDI

111 Church St, Hawthorn - ph: 9818 6140

Loved out brunch at Sardi with bubs and a friend last weekend!

One of the advantages of having little kids is that we can always get a table at trendy cafes.

No, we don't get to jump the queue because of how cute they are (or how in need of a coffee we look). With the little ones we are always up at 7am and out of the door by 8am, even on an Sunday...
