Winner - Nestle Giveaway

Wow, I loved the food pictures you have all sent to me. I've been getting some really great ideas for dinner options for my fussy eaters. It was hard to pick but I chose the best pics/recipes that I could replicate at home. The winners of the Nestle Healthy Active Kids are Sophie, Michelle and Kou!!!

Above are Sophie's Spinach and Feta twists. They look amazing and so easy to make. I think my kids would love them too. A great lunch box filler or afternoon snack.

Here is her Kale and White Bean soup. Looks amazeballs!! Perfect for our Winter weather although my kids would smirk at the green stuff but we just have to keep trying don't we? I tell them they will just starve if they don't eat what I make for dinner.

I am loving this plate of snowpeas and broccoli. It would be something hubby and I would devour. My kids would only eat the peas inside but it's a start. I am liking the addition of sesame seeds and what is that yummy stuff in the back? Gyoza's? Yum.

This is how Michelle makes food exciting for her girls. She draws funny faces on the eggs! Awesome.
I've been doing that on the kids lunch packs. I think they enjoy it a lot more when food is fun. Good tip.

Michelle's Banana attack. Take that! Un-real banana peel.
There is nothing more healthy than taking your kids for a nature walk. Thanks Michelle for sending me those marvellous pictures of your healthy, active family.

I am loving this lasagne Kou sent me. Now a full-time stay at home mum she enjoys spending more making delicious home made dinners and baked good. Looks great.


Also, getting really hungry looking at her Thai Chicken Curry. I love curries because they don't take long to cook so long as you have organised the ingredients you need. They are too spicy for the kids so I'd have to make a milder fish soup for the kids. I make this sweet and sour Tom Yum Soup on Fridays and it goes down really well with the kids. Also, a cheaper cut of fish like Ling fillet is budget friendly to use and I add a few vegies in there.


I made these Nutella scrolls the other day. I was given some dough from my sister in law who works at the church bakery so I smothered Nutella and cut the log out to make these scrolls which did not last very long once they were out of the oven!!!!

Nestle will be sending out these Prize Packs to you. I hope you continue to live Healthy Active lives and thanks so much for sharing.

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 …
