Do you ever wonder what makes a champion a champion, or a superhero super? Every superhero has a secret weapon right?! Like Spiderman and his spidey-web, Wolverine and his claws, Popeye with Spinach and Shera with her Sword of Protection. Well I discovered Adelaide’s-own, 2013 Crossfit Games World Champion Amanda Allen’s secret. DRUM ROLL PLEASE….
By now you might be wondering if I have an obsession with balls. I don’t. Truly. These balls are tasty little morsels that sit nicely in your fridge and don’t bother anyone ’bout nuffin. Quiet. Ever patient. And well…pretty. They live to please and will await your next craving, promising to deliver your […]
Ok, so I like to break the rules sometimes. It keeps me feeling alive. Technically speaking, peanuts are potentially a high allergy food so I should be telling you to steer clear of them.

After playing around in the kitchen with the previous mini chocolate cake recipe, I had some of the base leftover and wanted to create a new, fun recipe to use it all up. Waste not, want not! What better recipe to make, than an imitation Snickers bar. Same flavour, same satisfying hit, but without the […]
For the first time since I moved to Adelaide, I welcomed my very first guests into my home – a handful of my very best friends. Like little old ladies, we sat and talked over a cuppa, moving from topics such as boys, to the best fabrics for curtains to knitting and then after much […]
