I have found a lot of people coming to my blog and looking for pictures of a recipe and staying for 1 or 2 second because my site has no pictures of Recipes. So If any of you have any pictures of a recipe I have up here, please email it to me at with 'Picture for your Blog' as the Subject. If Requested, I will give details of the supplier, otherwise, the photo will remain anonymous.

Fruity Feast

This is a great Idea to get kids eating healthy.

Get all sorts of fruit (eg. paw-paw, apple, banana etc.) and cut up. Arrange in patterns. Below is an example:

Cut two slices of Banana (you can leave the skin on to make it more interesting) for the eyes, a slice of watermelon or paw-paw for the mouth, half a strawberry for the nose and to add a salady touch to it you could put some curly parsley for the hair.

Another Snack

Here is another snack post that the Children will enjoy. Great for Party's.

Swamp Anacondas

Snack Ideas 5 of 5

This is the final post I will put up in this series. Please leave a comment if you liked them!

Snack Idea #9
Snack Armour
Get one gingerbread man for each person. Do the same with with an iceberg lettuce leaf, a stick of licorice and half a strawberry. Use the leaf as a breastplate and the stawberry half as a helmet. Cut the licorice stick into two unequal pieces and put them in a sword shape. If you want you can 'glue' the armour on with a little icing.

Bread Baskets
Cook some apple and lemon Juice in a saucepan until soft. mix in some sultanas and sugar if you want. Push one slice of bread in a patty pan and cook until hard and crusty. Fill with the apple mix.
Optional: Cut another piece of bread to size for a top.
P.S:You can use any filling you want, including savoury.

Chicken Schnitzel

This Recipe is from my own cooking experience:

1/2 kilogram Chicken thigh fillets (about 7)
1/2 cup Flour
1 egg

Cut all the chicken thighs in half. Tip 1/4 cup of flour into 2 bowls. Crack egg into another bowl and whisk lightly. Dip each piece of chicken into first flour, then egg, then flour again. Cook on a frypan
or Barbeque for 5-10 minutes on medium heat.
Serve with mashed or baked potatoes.

Tip: Don't cook your chicken to long or it will go tough.

See ya!!!

Chocolate Kisses

This Recipe is an adapted version of Coffee Kisses from Family Circle's Step-by-Step Scones, Muffins and Teatime Treats:


3 cups self raising flour
160 g butter, chopped
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon Coco powder
1-2 tablespoons cold water

Chocolate Buttercream
80 g butter
1 cup icing sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons Coco powder


  1. TO MAKE BISCUITS: Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Brush two biscuit trays with oil. Line with baking paper. Sift flour into a bowl. Add butter and rub into flour with your fingertips, until it resembles fine bread crumbs. Add combined sugar, egg and coco powder, dissolved in water, all at once. Mix with flat bladed knife until ingredients come together to form a soft dough. Lightly knead until smooth
  2. Roll out dough between two sheets of baking paper to a 4 mm thickness. Cut into 5 cm rounds with a fluted cutter. Place on prepared trays. Bake 10 mins or until lightly golden. Transfer biscuits to a wire rack to cool.
  3. TO MAKE CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM: Using electric beaters, beat butter and icing sugar until light and creamy. Add combined water and coco powder and beat until combined. Place mixture in a piping bag fitted with a fluted nozzle and pipe buttercream onto half the biscuits. Top with another biscuit and sandwich together.
Serving Suggestion: Drizzle with melted Chocolate and top with a chocolate drop.


See ya!!!
