Melbourne is one of my absolute most favourite places in the world. I love the shopping, the people, the food!
There just is no where like it.
I need to book a flight like yesterday!
Who wants to come with?
One of our readers has submitted this BEAUTIFUL recipe to the nest (and we CANNOT wait to try it!)
She promises that it is healthy, not to difficult to make and very yummy! Her two little sons even approved!
Thanks for sharing with the nest Kellie!
NESTERS: We always love hearing from you, so if you have a recipe that is a firm hit with your family we would love to hear from you! Just shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I am trying this new thing, basically to make life easier I am trying to bake on Sundays so that during the week for the hubby-bird’s lunches I have food already made so it is as simple as pulling from the freezer and chucking it into his bag.
Plus, I have snacks on standby the the little birdies when the dreaded hunger monster appears. I really enjoy knowing what ingredients are going into their little bellies.
This week we stumbled across a great recipe from the team at The Road To Loving My Thermo Mixer for Apple Crumble muffins.
They are delicious! Plus, they look WAY impressive (like, look tots harder to make than what they really are!)
You can find the recipe here -> Apple Crumble Muffins
Now, do not fear if you are yet to purchase a Thermomix (or similar) because the brilliant team at The Road To Loving My Thermo Mixer offer a non-Thermomix version as well!
Happy cooking Nesters!
Shut the back door.
I have located the BEST potato dish EVER!
I realise I am using A LOT of CAPITALS but they are THAT good!
Courtesy of the fantastically wonderful Donna Hay they are bloody delicious.
I made the Crunchy Roast Potatoes on Sunday and the hubby-bird and little-birds ate them all before the roast was even finished cooking!
Crisp. Hot. Deliciousness.
Plus, they are SUPER easy.

If you are a regular reader of the blog you will know how much I LOVE One Handed Cooks.
A little while ago I found this really interesting article on the idea of not being Rude to Food.
It is such a simple concept that works so bloody well.
Our toddler-bird is much happier now eating her vegies because it is a positive experience rather than something she dreads.
I just wish I found this earlier!

Cooking is for me, is what classical music is for smart people. Relaxing. Enjoyable. Escapism.
I really enjoy finding exciting, new ways to cook. Ways, that aren’t exactly the norm.
These little bad-boys look like little dreams I can’t wait to try out!
You can find the recipe here -> Steam cupcakes: Apam Dot Dot
Enjoy cooking Nesters!
Okay, so sometimes I am a terrible human being and find slightly inappropriate things funny. Like, take for example, babies eating lemons.
Look, quite simply, it is hilarious. Well, it was until my second baby-bird just happily ate lemons, that was way less exciting.
Amazingly enough, someone, somewhere in the world also finds babies eating lemons entertaining, so much so they went to actual effort to compose a video.
It is well worth the watch.
Here is a teaser of some of the little mites faces:
So, without naming names, someone very special to me LOVES fetta. She stumbled across some ‘marinated dukkah fetta’ recently when we went away and now can’t let it go. We can’t find it ANYWHERE so I am endeavouring to bombard her with recipes until she starts making her own!
I have found a nice, easy recipe for marinated fetta from Minimally Invasive.
Okay, admittedly it nearly uses your body amount in oil and cheese but, hey, let’s go with it. We all know it is only a sometimes food!
We think this would be fabulous at your next barbecue, imagine being able to tell your guests that you actually MADE the antipasto platter (instead of buying it from the team at Woolies!)
Looking for something a little bit different this Easter? How about creating your very own Easter Bunny Bark?
Delicious, colourful and fun (and luckily because you are making it for Easter the calories don’t count right?!)
You can find the recipe and how-to here -> Easter Bunny Bark
Happy Easter Nesters!
