Lemon and blueberry tray bake. The taste of summer is here!

Lemon and blueberry tray bake. The taste of summer is here!

There are some winning flavour combinations out there, my Warriors, and this has to one of my ultimate faves! It’s fresh, zesty and in my humble and amateur baking opinion, the perfect little summer number – juicy plump blueberries (one of your five a day of course), flecks of lemon throughout cake and frosting (one of your five a day of course) and a silky, tangy lemon glaze which smothers the cake like a bakey cakey blanket of luuuuurve!   Share the...
Clean 9 Cleanse is complete!!

Clean 9 Cleanse is complete!!

I didn’t think I would, Craigy Boy didn’t think I would, anyone who knows me and my love for all things sweet probably didn’t think I would… BUT I DID!  I, The Ginger “sweet toothed” Warrior saw the Clean 9 Cleanse through to its conclusion (there might have been one minor slipage, more on that in the video) and really ought to give myself a hearty slap on the back. There. Just did it. Bit awkward twisting my arm at that angle, but I did it.This blog post is going to be short and sweet (Oooh! There’s that word again! ) since everything you need to know you will find in my final video diary. Share the...
I have a problem with the World Cup

I have a problem with the World Cup

I do not wish to be party pooper but it’s true – I have a problem with the World Cup and it seems that I’m not alone. Thousands of angry Brazilians took to the streets on Monday in protest against the inordinate amount of money that has been spent on preparing the country to host the tournament, money that 60% of Brazilians feel could have been more wisely spent on improving infrastructure and public services.   Share the...
Clean 9 cleanse: Days 4, 5 & 6

Clean 9 cleanse: Days 4, 5 & 6

OVER HALF-WAY THERE!! Not that I’m relieved or anything. I want to drink aloe vera gel at every meal for the rest of my life! Yes, you do detect notes of thick sarcasm, almost as thick as the gel itself.  😉 Since we last touched base several things have happened: 1) Despite what I just said I’m actually at peace with the aloe. It’s a necessary evil and tastes slightly less vile the more I ingest. 2) I found a way to make the pancake-mix-like milkshakes taste deeeeelicious! But you’ll have to watch my video below to find out what I did. 3) On Saturday, Day 6, I weighed and measured myself and the results are in!  But before we get to that part, which I know is the part you all want to get to, let me remind you of the menu for days 4, 5 & 6. Here it is Share the...
This is my Dad and I love him

This is my Dad and I love him

See the handsome fella in the picture above?  That’s my Dad, Gordon, and I’m his number one fan.  He’s my number one fan too.  Well, other than Craigy Boy perhaps, who is obliged to love me a lot. My Dad worked in the North sea on the oil rigs as I was growing up and he was away two weeks out of every month. On the day he was due home I would anxiously await the moment he walked through the kitchen door and I would squeal with delight and throw myself upon him, not letting go until he prised my arms from around his waist. And then, on the day he was leaving to go back to the rigs, I would be up and hanging out of mum and dad’s bedroom window at 6am screaming “Bye, Daddy, I love you!”, over and over again until I lost sight of him as he turned the corner of Kinghorne Street. This was our fortnightly ritual and we were perfectly content with the arrangement. Even if the neighbours were less than content. Share the...
