Recipes

A few months ago I had the Lewis Road Creamery team (as well as a few extra little helping hands!) join me in my kitchen to shoot three recipes. The brief was to share three of my wholesome recipes that little ones love and can easily get involved in helping to make. Simple, that's everyday cooking for me. 
This wholesome Butter Cookie recipe is incredibly easy to adapt to what you have on hand, or...
Finn, who is almost two, adores peanut butter. He could eat an entire jar if I let him at it with a spoon, although we don't buy jars now, we've upsized to pales, in the hope that we don't run out so quickly. 
I've had a delicious fudge experiment on the brain for awhile, but am not interested in refined sugar, or the melting of sugar and controlling temperatures - far too laborious for me, food in...
This week I featured in the New Zealand Herald, in a piece it is running on small business bloggers, you can read the article onlinehere. For those of you that follow my blog I wanted to take the time to say thank-you.

Easing into the short week with the recipe for these delicious apricot and orange logs. Often it is the simplest of recipes that pack the biggest flavour and this can defiantly be said about these little beauties! These wee logs are the perfect size for chubby wee fingers and make a wonderful addition to a lunchbox for big or small! They can be thrown together in minutes and only contain a handful...
These delicious wee crackers tend to get devoured before they make it to the jar, which is for the best as they are fantastic while still warm from the oven. Max isn't a huge bread or cracker fan, but he does love cheese and Finn, the chalk in their relationship, doesn't eat cheese but would happily eat any form of cracker, all.day.long! With the addition of buckwheat flour which despite its name...
If you follow the Little & Loved Facebook page, you may have seen these moreish macaroons that I made late last year. Well, I've been making them a few times a week ever since! They are incredibly simple to make and are perfectly soft on the inside after that first crisp, coconut bite. Just divine, as every macaroon should be. You can enjoy any number with a cup of herbal tea without feeling...
