Peaceful Sleep Adventure Series – Part Three

January 24, 2018


It’s round three of my Peaceful Sleep Adventure Series which involves my family and me together with Peaceful Sleep going on a set of adventures whilst under the protective force field created by their extensive Family Care Range (you can check the whole lot out on their brand new site). We’re setting out to show you some cool kid-friendly places and things to do with your little ones during the next few months of Summer.

This specific post is really special to me because it’s an episode of Tastes Like Nice which is mine and Nina’s baking show and it takes place at Shane’s mom’s family holiday cottage in Riet River where Shane as well as his mom, has spent pretty much every December of their lives. We’re also using a recipe that comes from Nina’s Great Granny’s cookbook which was put together in 1979! We’re making her famous Riet River Rusks which were apparently (according to the recipe) very popular among army and seamen. Haha I love that!

Oreo Monster Pops – Halloween Treats

October 24, 2017


OOoooooooOooooohohohoooooohhh Halloween is almost upon us so I thought that Nina and I would create some Oreo Monster Pops – Halloween Treats which can be whipped up in no time and then devoured in even less! This delicious chocolate coated Oreo bites are really fun to make with your kids because you can go all out on decorations and make some crazy looking monsters covered in all sorts of yummy things to eat.

Nina really enjoyed this activity because one, it involved sprinkles my child’s favourite thing! And two she got to eat what she made afterward which I think for kids is always a bonus, in fact, I think it’s a bonus for whoever is helping them too! I won’t say no to an Oreo pop!

Easy to make bunny cupcakes

August 28, 2017


I’m happy to say that the second episode of mine and Nina James’ YouTube series Tastes Like Nice is out and it’s all about Easy To Make Bunny Cupcakes, which really are easy to make not to mention really fun!

I love making these with her because she really gets to play around with the decorations and often, in the end, we get a mix of the funniest, but best looking ‘bunny’ cupcakes that look like they belong to the craziest crew on the block! This recipe which doesn’t require that much admin or ingredients yields some pretty tasty vanilla cupcakes that have been flop proof every time I’ve whipped them up, so don’t worry about coming out with average cake (some vanilla cupcakes can be so average). The icing I use is a pretty standard butter cream icing, but if you don’t feel like it, you could always replace it with a yummy marshmallow frosting.
