The original recipe comes from the current issue of Home Beautiful which I've made gluten free and adapted to the thermomix. and I was drawn to the recipe because we have loads of lemons and other citrus fruits in our yard.

Flicking through my instagram photos I can see that lots has been going on and life looks like it’s back to normal. And it is and it isn’t. We are trying to do all of our normal activities but my reality is lots of time on the couch feeding my little guy or having him […]

Like big pooplosions that require a change of outfit and bedding. Yesterday I had to wash the bassinet mattress too. big stretches and a little smelly going […]

I wasn’t really in the mood for baking while pregnant but seem to be making up for lost time now that little lawson is here. And so I spend quite a bit of money on gluten free dairy free cookies for preschool lunchboxes at the start of the week and decided that it was definitely […]
