GIVEAWAY: Healthy Bones Australia is a public health program designed to teach people about how to maintain good bone health. It is an initiative of Osteoporosis Australia and is being supported by Milo, with a Halloween promotion. I really like the PR match here – bone health and Halloween (skeletons). I think it’s cute! So I’m supporting their initiative. And giving away a Halloween pack!
AS hubby was helping himself to seconds of lasagne last night he remarked, “Would you say lasagne was your signature dish?”. He asked because I make lasagne once a week, it’s simple and ever since I conquered the white sauce, it’s easy to put together. (And truth be told, it makes me feel like a good wife and mother). But I don’t want to be known for my lasagne.
THIS recipe for healthy sausage rolls is the easiest thing under the sun and it’s a great way to get any amount of vegetables you can think of into your kids. It’s based on the premise that kids will eat anything if it’s wrapped in pastry. Well, mine will. I made these sausage rolls for our sleepover recently and it was a huge hit. Give them a go and you’ll be amazed at how great they are and at how much the kids love them. And at how easy they are to make.
As regular readers would know, I’ve been planning how to make a rainbow layer cake for my daughter’s birthday party for aaaages! I even wrote I would have a couple of practice runs at it – ha!

Here’s how it turned out, and my top tips on how to make a rainbow layer cake.
Got a picky eater who refuses leafy greens? Stubbornly says they won’t eat tomato? Or, got great eaters who are pretty good, but won’t tackle lettuce and tomato? I have a solution for you with a fun way to eat – tacos!
Our family is on a misson to eat more fish, chasing the omega 3 oil it contains, which is thought to improve health and child development. Adding more fish to our diet also achieves another goal – cutting back on red meat meals. (A sponsored post for the Heart Foundation and Nature’s Own)
Earlier I posted about my dreams of making a perfect rainbow layer cake for my daughter’s fifth birthday. In it, I mentioned an old school friend, Cathy, who is mastering the cake-making secrets to a perfect cake. Here are her top tips, and a few examples of her unbelievably intricate work! She kept insisting that she was a ‘hobby’ cake maker but to my untrained eye, she’s pretty expert to me.
There are two nights during the week when, due to extra-curricular activities, we get home late. Thursdays is one of those nights, when piano lessons keep us out of the house until about 6pm. And it may shock you to learn that I am not the most organised person getting around. Hey, no, stop, I hear you say.
