  • I’ve got 5 kids and as surely as your parents motivational sound tracks have obviously rubbed off on you, I think to some extent we dictate the mood at the beginning of the year for our kids. So heaps of fist pumping over here in Sydney, lots of motivational stationery and gratitude journals. It can’t do any harm can it? Happy New Year!

  • 4 days into the new year, have only just had breakfast but still this post has given me cravings! You should check out an old british fave, the ‘self-saucing pudding’, ‘lemon delicious pudding’ being a notable highlight. It’s the cakey, warm type of pudding, not the cold custardy version we have here in the US. Self saucing means you dunk a tablespoon of hot water over your wet cake mixture and it creates a hot pool of sauce at the bottom of your cake, like some kind of dessert miracle.
