Healthy Work Snacks

I’ve never been much of a snacker in the traditional sense – I rarely eat chocolate or chips or anything like that, but I do find myself needing something to help me through the work day at times so I thought I would share a few of my favourite healthy (or at least healthier!) snack choices that I take with me to work.

Recipe: Coconut Lemon Slice

We had a work training day offsite this week and were required to bring along something to share for morning and afternoon tea to keep us going. I wanted to make something sweet, but not too sweet so decided on this lemon & coconut slice.  There’s something about the combination of lemon and coconut that I just love! Although I call it a slice, it’s actually almost a cake due to its thick, doughy base, but either way it’s delicious and was very warmly received by my colleagues!

Recipe: Apricot and Almond Balls

After making my bliss balls a few times I decided it was time to branch out and try some different flavour combinations. I had a bag of dried apricots that I was using in a different recipe, so decided to do an apricot and almond version and they turned out rather delish! They’re just as simple to make as the bliss balls, so if you liked those, maybe give these a try too!

Life Lately

It’s been an up and down last week for me, but luckily the countdown is now officially on until B and I head off on a little tropical holiday to Vanuatu, so at least I’ve been keeping busy with preparations for that – which is lots of fun!  (more…)

Learning: DSLR Camera Class

About a year ago I gifted myself a fancy-pants digital SLR camera (the Nikon D5100 if anyone is interested) with an equally fancy lens. I love the camera but as I have no background in photography I knew I wasn’t getting the most out of it by leaving it on automatic mode and barely touching any of the features. I had tried reading the manual and even watched a few tutorials on youtube, but none of it was making any sense. As B and I have a little holiday coming up in May I decided it was time to bite the bullet and learn how to properly use the camera, so I enrolled in an intensive Basic Digital SLR Photography Course through the Centre for Adult Education (CAE) in Melbourne.
