There were a few dishes my Dad perfected after Mum passed away back in 1994. One of them was Chilli Con Carne. Every time I make this – I think of him. He wouldn’t like it much though. No meat and “not enough spice” for his liking…ha!

Here it is folks, my Mixed Potato Gratin.
We were short on time, so I sped up the process by part cooking in the microwave which I’ve also added to recipe.

Britney said it best, “..not a girl, not yet a woman…”
My baby girl headed off to Year 7 camp this week and for the fist time since she was in Grade 3, she didn’t want me to walk her in, help her with her gear and wait with her for the bus. I won’t lie – I was a little heartbroken. I respected her wishes, dropping her out the front of school, squeezing her so tight and staying a little while to watch as she headed in with her bags. Off she went. So happy. So independent, and full to the brim with nervous excitement!

Lily has sworn off bananas following a car sickness incident in India. She won’t eat bananas but she loves my banana bread, so I make this up most weeks for either school lunch boxes or after school snack.

Tell me one person who doesn’t like Puff Pastry?
We’ve been making these for years. When you’re out of bread, but have some pastry in the freezer – these are a great little snack. Perfect for lunch boxes, and can also be made ahead of time and frozen.
