If you’re looking for a delicious slice that the whole family can enjoy, this is it. The almond meal makes it light and delicious. It’s impossible to stop at one. You can add slivered almonds to the mixture if you like, but my girls prefer it just with the cranberries and choc chips….

Growing up in a family of seven meant that life was never dull. There were comings and goings and a constant stream of activities amongst five daughters. But we always came together for the evening meal.
Meal times were noisy; the dinner table was a place of spirited debate. Everyone was expected to contribute to conversation and differences of opinion were fostered. We were encouraged to think, to reflect and consider other points of view.
Dinners went on for hours and yet I don’t remember any of us ever complaining. We were expected to help set the table and serve dinner; participate in discussion at the table; and happily do the dishes afterwards. My dad always had seconds and he liked to take him time eating. Friends would often call but there was a strict “no interruptions” rule during dinnertime. They’d call back later – but we still hadn’t finished eating! They were incredulous….
In the past, I’ve kept my kids’ birthday parties to modest affairs – the cheap and cheerful variety. But this year for Miss A’s 5th birthday I decided to spend a little more time and money on creating a spectacular party for my beautiful girl. When I asked her what type of party she would like, I was not the least bit surprised when she requested a Fairy theme.
At the age of five she’s delightfully immersed in imaginative play and the existence of fairies are very real. The best part about planning this party was consulting with my client every step of the way. Miss A loved every part of the event coordination, from developing the invitees list, to collecting the RSVPs and deciding on catering requirements. We had so much fun and her involvement made it a really fun and exciting event….
Show me a person who doesn’t love lemon coconut slice and I’ll show you a lier. It has to be hands down one of the yummiest slices and it’s so simple to make. Everyone has their own version (which don’t really vary much) and this one is mine. I can’t remember the original source of this recipe but I like my lemon slice really lemony and the icing has to be not too thick but not too thin either. Adapt to your personal taste. I also think the quality of the biscuits enhances the flavour. Try this one – it’s light, lemony and luscious!…
