This morning the clouds came over and it felt and looked really Wintery.
I decided it was a good day to bake so after my morning cuppa I measured out two batches of dough and left them to prove.

The first batch was made into pizza's and a Lebanese Za'atar bread. Yumm.
The second batch was made into Spinach, Feta and Mushroom pull-apart.
Halfway through I realised I had some of that thick yoghurt I made recently which would be superb in the mix. The pull-apart Recipe from I love that site and go there frequently.

 Still adoring his big brown eyes. He is feeding better and sleeping a bit better for me at night now as well.
A bit predictable with no earlier than me getting to bed around midnight. Wake up for first feed around 3am, sleep not long after, wake up at 4am realising the light is left on, turn it off, get comfy in bed then wake up around 6am - 7am for next feed. My circadian rhythm is use to it now so I'm not really that tired if I can sleep in til 8am with hubby at home. He goes back to work on Friday so I'll be flying solo then. (Cringe)

Recieved - some new fabric recently and haven't decided what to make from them yet.
Want - this sweet necklace by Toni. She has free shipping for a short time only.
Happy to be home right now and taking each day as it comes. Trying to get into some sort of routine and meal planning but no chance of that in the foreseeable future. Perhaps once the kids are back at preschool/daycare.

Hope you're all doing fine.


  1. You bake with 4 kids? I am very impressed!

    That all looks very delicious. There's nothing like baking on a cold rainy day.

  2. Looks so tasty! As with all things new, a rhythm will set in and you will feel things return back to normal. You probably already know this :)
    Your little dude is growing so fast!!

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Cooking under pressure

The other day I saw a huge stack of Bellini multifunction cookers in front of Target. Of course the black and sleek packaging and design caught my eye and I stood there having a look at what they were selling. It was an all in one pressure, rice, porridge, cake, steam and slow cooker. It was half price so I really couldn't resist. I plonked it in front of the pram and the toddler walked.
I tried it with rice yesterday and it was fine but wasn't happy about how loud it was as it let out the steam and it spurted rice water over the lid so it doesn't win any gongs in that department. However, I made 15min soy chicken for lunch today so I was really pleased with that. In fact, I don't know how I lived without a pressure cooker for so long! I use to cringe about how it would take me 30mins at least to make a meal and now I can go from frozen to the table in about 25mins. How awesome!
I made this soy chicken using 8 drumsticks, 1/2 cup soy, 1 cup of vegetable stock and set …
