FEAT_apple-berry-crumble-slice

Apple and berry is one of those combinations that are almost guaranteed to please pretty much everyone – particularly during these cooler winter months. There’s just something about it that makes you want to snuggle up on the couch, right? While apple and berry crumble is a ‘go-to’ for lots of people over winter, crumble…

With the weather cooling down and a newborn on the horizon, I’m spending more time snuggling up at home than ever. And you know what? It’s actually pretty amazing. While not needing to set an alarm, having the option of wearing pyjamas all day and watching the rain rather than trekking through it are all…

The following blog is not sponsored – I simply love what the Blind Foundation do and want to encourage you to lend a hand this Bikkie Day. It’s always a bonus when you can make a difference just by whipping up a batch of biscuits – while it’s great having a full biscuit jar tucked…

One biscuit, three ways

Easy afghans

There have been a few random things I’ve craved so far this pregnancy – pineapple, Twisties (so weird!), doughnuts (so good!) and most recently, afghans. This baby certainly has eclectic taste – and a bit of a sweet tooth. As today’s my first official day of maternity leave I thought I’d take some time to let…

Berry and chocolate mousse cheesecake

Summer is made for cheesecakes, right? Those cool, creamy desserts are just the thing to wind down with on a balmy (or sticky!) summer’s evening. But let’s be honest, the last thing you want to do on a hot day is spend hours in the kitchen preparing dessert – and cheesecakes are time-consuming, right? Well,…

Ringing in 2017

It may be a few weeks behind schedule, but High Tea with Dragons is officially back in action for the New Year – whoop! As you may have seen over on my Facebook page, 2017 is a pretty big one for our little family – we’ll be welcoming a new (less furry) member of the…
