Put the oven ON!

Put the oven ON!

Winter the perfect time to put on your oven!

Last month, I did a photoshoot in a local airbnb with Sweetshute.

I got taking to one of the models there about easy healthy food their kids could make with lots of protein and no bread.

It is really easy to just make a sandwich, but for me it isn't something I can do every day....

These are the Australian Gins you need to try!

These are the Australian Gins you need to try!

And so it beGINS..

For me the journey to gin (seriously journey what is this self help) was a long one.

I refused to drink it for a long time, the few times I had drunk it I ended up in tears, now I don't know if it was just cheap gin or my emotional state (two times were years apart though), but as my access to gin got easier, ie. it is everywhere and the lure of Four Pillars Gin Distillery close to our previous home, the draw to try it again was too great.

So from a reformed non-gin drinker start with these:

Four Pillars Gin - these guys Stu and Cam are totally fun, love gin and make good gin to, winning combo, head to Healesville to try them in house, properly and with friendly serve.

Never Never Gin - which is one of the Top Australian gins winning awards

LOBO Djinn - Gin - this one is amazing, distilled with quince, one of my fav fruits ever. I tried this with heritage sliced apple they grow, along with a slice of pear.

 Kis - Kangaroo Island Spirits - amazing smooth flavour.

Applewood Distillery - also SA, I didn't realise this was also a SA distillery. 

The Melbourne Gin Company 

And so it be gins enamel pin

 

I have curated a page on Pinterest here.

 

I will continue to update this as I try more!

Vanilla Cupcake recipe (This is the one I promise!)

The go to recipe for cake / cupcakes, when you need to get something made, call it 'the little black dress' of the cake world, maybe, what I mean is, it is super good and hard to get wrong.

So do you have some baking coming up, the bake sale, birthday cakes, celebration cake, new to the neighbourhood cake (I totally just wish this was a thing), or you just want a signature cake to take to a friends?

Then try this one. The key is fresh ingredients, and a little time to beat it.
