Find out all about our Christmas Ebook packed full of homemade gifts. Including 16 classic Christmas favourites, there really is something to suit everyone!

Oh my gosh we are so excited about this weeks Fabulous Foodie Fridays party! Not only do we have an amazing selection of recipes for you to drool over, but we can also finally share some super exciting news… we have a Christmas Homemade Gifts Ebook! We’ve worked our little butts off (and strained our technologically hopeless brains) for months on this project and are so happy to be able to finally share it with you.

But first let’s check out my favourite recipes from last weeks FFF party.

Let’s face it – the words chocolate and healthy don’t usually go together… but in this yummy Healthy Chocolate Muffin recipe from Pretty Wee Things they certainly do!


I love cooking with quinoa and am always on the lookout for different ways to use it. These Asian Inspired Quinoa Meatballs from House In Tillford sound absolutely delicious.


Anything that is called ‘The Ultimate Chocolate Brownie‘ recipe is definitely ok with me. Throw in some raspberries and it’s even better. Thanks to Just A Mum for this fab recipe.


I always like to have something sweet with my afternoon cuppa and these 4 ingredient Butterscotch Biscuits featured over on The Multitasking Mummy sound like just what I need!


With Christmas just around the corner (ok, ok, well a few weeks away… but who’s counting!), there’s no better time to whip up a batch up healthy Jingle Balls from Mrs Organised.


Don’t forget to pop over and check out Lauren’s favourites too.

Christmas Ebook – Homemade Gifts 

Now back to our ebook news!!!!! Our Christmas Homemade Gifts ebook was officially released this week and is a collection of 16 classic Christmas favourites – and what we think are the perfect sweet gifts for family and friends (or to enjoy yourself, of course!). The ebook has everything from sauces and condiments, to cookies and biscuits, slices and bars, and plenty of classic favourites, so there really is something to suit everyone!

Christmas Ebook

When we decided to make an ebook, we knew we wanted the proceeds to go to a good cause. There are so many amazing charities out there that is was hard to choose, but we finally settled on two charities that are very close to our hearts – Mater Little Miracles and Ovarian Cancer Australia. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of our ebook during November will go directly to these two charities. The ebook costs only $7.99 (or a special reduced price of $3.99 if you subscribe to our blogs) and is a great way to support two very worthwhile causes… all the while getting to eat some yummy homemade gifts too!

The Mater Little Miracles supports seriously ill babies and children throughout pregnancy, birth, infancy and childhood.  This cause is very close to Lauren’s family, as all four of her children were born prematurely and she also spent many months in hospital trying to prolong her pregnancies. If it wasn’t for the experienced, professional and lovely doctors at the Mater Mothers Hospital, Lauren’s two special little boys wouldn’t be running around outside right now.  Donating the proceeds of the ebook is Lauren’s way to give a little something back to the people who supported her and her family during this time. You can find out more about the work Mater Little Miracles does here. 



Ovarian Cancer Australia aims to save lives through continued research, development of awareness campaigns and establishing best treatment practises. Their support programs ensure that no woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer walks alone. I lost my beautiful mother-in-law to ovarian cancer last year and she would be so proud to know that the proceeds of our ebook were going towards such an incredible cause. For more information on Ovarian Cancer Australia, including their support services, click here. 


Here’s a little sneak peak at our ebook…
