Welcome!  Not only are we celebrating the end of another week, but it’s also the last weekend of Winter!  Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy the cooler months.  I love indulging my cravings for slow cooked casseroles, puddings and roasts, but as the days are starting to get a warmer and a little longer, my appetite is changing and I find myself looking for lighter options.  Last week there were so many recipes that had my tummy rumbling, and several I’ve added to our meal planner for the week.

Now that the sun is shining in the morning (yep, even here in Melbourne!!!) it’s time for me to move on from my usual routine of hot oats for breakfast to something a little more summery. Oooh these Yoghurt Cups with Almonds and Brown Sugar from Rosehips and Rhubarb are going to be perfect for satisfying my total and utter love of all things involving yoghurt!

I don’t know which I love more… cookies or freckles! Thankfully Granny Deez Kitchen has solved my dilemma with these Malt Biscuits topped with freckles and chocolate buttons!!!!

A big welcome to the FFF party to Food by Dad. Shaun has certainly made quite the entrance with this decadent Baked Chocolate Tart. I’m absolutely dying to try this recipe out – it has me drooling.

I love having salad for dinner… especially when it’s as delicious as TOMFO’s Jamie Oliver inspired Fiery Noodle Salad with Chicken Satay Skewers. Perfect barbecuing food!

Finally, My Brown Paper Packages has inspired me to make my own laksa at home with this delicious recipe. I love all of the fresh flavours this laksa is bursting with!

This week it’s over to Lauren who is sharing one of her favourite childhood recipes (and mine too) – Cornflake Cookies!

 

Cornflake Cookies recipe..

I can still remember the first time I saw one of these, thinking how strange it was to see breakfast cereal in a biscuit.  My Nan used to make these for us on special occasions, and there was something about the crispy cornflakes scattered throughout the buttery biscuit that I just couldn’t resist.

My version is a little different to my Nan’s, I like to be a little naughty and add chocolate chips – because chocolate can only make everything better right?!?!  These biscuits are incredibly moreish, just try and stop at only one!
