Isabella and I made the Flatbread with Causley honey, fried in Bangalow butter. Tahlia and Emma helped as well. Turned out so [...]

When desperation calls for a chocolate lover, by Shinae.

Posted on August 18th, 2011 by Jess Causley

Tahlia and Emma's lunchboxes

Posted on August 8th, 2011 by Jess Causley

          I find lunchboxes for the kids very challenging.  I admit I sometimes go to school at lunchtime to spy at what other kids are eating. Being Swedish I didn’t grow up with lunchboxes, we got free home-style meals for lunch in school. After 2,5 years and 14 lunchboxes a week [...]

Rose and vanilla cupcakes

Rosewater and vanilla cupcakes

Posted on June 10th, 2011 by Jess Causley

My 7 year old daughter Tahlia loves making cupcakes. This recipe is so good, it never ever fails.  Sometimes the measuring of ingredient doesn’t go to plan, especially if our three year old is helping, but that doesn’t seem to matter.   Tahlia has made these about 20 times, with perfect result every time.
