Easy Olympic Cookies

Easy Olympic Cookies

I love watching the Olympic games. It’s probably the only sports coverage I happily watch continuously when the games are on. Swimming, rowing,  gymnastics, diving and the track and field events are usually my favourite competitions to watch. You can sometimes find me yelling loudly at the Australian teams to ‘Go, Go, GO!’ or I’ll be tearing […]

Adult Lunch Box

Adult Lunch Box Ideas

This year, I started making lunches for the husband. I haven’t made lunches for my husband before so it’s a new thing for me. In the past, depending on where he was working, often lunch has been provided for him. It’s easy since I’m already making lunches for the kids, and I just adapt them slightly (usually with […]
