Cakes & Makes

The Kitchen Is Open

I Think I Cook Too Much, Too Often!


In my quest for getting The Making Buzz, I am often found in the kitchen. I feel like I am forever cooking, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I am annoyingly strict with the kids and their food/drink in take, and I am even kicking my abysmal Diet Coke habit in accordance with my own rules. For someone who is so health conscious, it made sense that a can of fizzy deliciousness wasn’t an appropriate first meal of the day!

Here at The Mad House, I want to encourage a broad range of tastes and experiences for The Twiglets. I try to ensure we live by the “try it first” mantra, before we decide we dislike it based on colour/smell/texture/temperature/plate colour/day of the week. So far we have had some success, so I shall continue on my mission. If even #BossBaby loves curry, I am winning at life!  

From Makes all the way through to cakes, we endeavour to spend time as a family cooking and enjoying food. After all, families that cook together, stay together!

We have a full fat way of life, enjoying smaller portions of the things we love, and bigger portions of the things we need. Nutrients, health and vibrant colours are enjoyed for most meals, but the occasional “freezer food Friday” ensures we consume some beige too.

After all, a balanced diet is a burger in both hands!! 

Below you’ll find some family favourites, inherited recipes and epic fails. Because we do all of life here, not just the insta-worthy version!

Back to School, we have survived!

We have survived, and made it to September! Thank the universe! Back to School we go Team Twiglet, quick quick, silence is awaiting me…

The Mad House

Home is where the heart is. And ours is happily no exception. A million miles an hour at all times, but we wouldn’t swap it!

The Twiglets

Unabashed honesty, admissions of screw ups and all that goes with having an army of small folks flanked by two ninja kittens!

The Big C.

A 15 year battle (and counting) has taken and yet given me so much. I make a useless patient but even my stubborness can’t deter this little beast.
