Ever wanted to cook something special just so you can show off your pretty new kitchen accessories? I know I have!
After recently experiencing some complex & draining weeks, filled with family and other dramas, I

Trouble was I wasn’t feeling it, I just couldn’t get ‘my cook on’ no matter what I tried! I was in survival mode – you know – cooking as a ‘must do’, rather than as a ‘want to’ – tasty & nutritious, but uninspired & well, a little dull – a place I try not to get to if I can manage it.
It was on a shopping trip with my babies, an … under sufferance, the kids are tired & grumpy, mum’s tired & impatient, but we’re running out of food staples & have a birthday party tomorrow & no present, so just get in the car & let’s go … kind of shopping trip, that I was stopped in my tracks by the most wonderful & wise little man I know.
