A fun and yummy day

It’s Saturday and Australia Day today!

Instead of lazing around at home, we decided to head out to Fremantle Markets for some yummy eats and fun family time.

We kicked things off at the Baby Animal Farm where Nathan fed a little hamster a carroty snack. Then we stopped by the Market Fairies’ stall for Nathan to get a yellow star painted on his hand.

For lunch we enjoyed some Japanese ramen at Dosukoi’s noodle stall. Nathan went bonkers over the Takoyaki balls – especially with the chewy octopus bits inside.

And after lunch we cooled off with some cold creamy frozen yoghurt. Nathan charmed the lady at the stall so well that she gave him a freebie specially-made with bonus marshmallow sprinkles.

That was definitely the big highlight of the day for him.

How I use traditional muslin cloths as nappies

This post is for the benefit of my friend Stephanie who has recently made the decision to take the plunge into cloth diapering. She bought a few pieces of MCNs and is expecting a package of two dozen muslin flats. Although I've collected a good stash of modern cloth diapers, muslin flats still form a key part of my cloth diapering system. When I first started using this, I was a little dubious about the absorption power of this seemingly flimsy material. But it’s quite surprising how well it performs… and for such a small cost (sometimes free as these are commonly received as a gift from loving friends/relatives) it’s by far the most economical way to diaper a baby. The first fold I used was the traditional Chinese or Origami fold:

Unfortunately for me, I found that it didn’t hold up very well as my son is a rather heavy wetter and I had yet to discover the use of nappy covers. My other complaint about this fold is that the fold is not really concentrated around the main wetting area.…

An impossible cake

Every now and then, mamas  crave for something sinful and sweet… preferably with a touch of chocolate. Running after a toddler and breastfeeding a baby is really hungry work. I’m not really the sort of person who has their fridge and pantry stocked up with junk food and sweets. But I usually have all the basic ingredients on hand to whip up an indulgent treat when the craving hits.One evening I found myself longing for a bite of some chocolate cake… however being the end of the week, I was out of some core ingredients. Butter. Eggs. Milk. All necessary elements required to make a decent cake. Or so I thought.Then I found this impossible recipe. A cake with no butter, eggs and milk. They’re calling it Crazy Cake. Because you have to be crazy NOT to try it.It’s soooo easy to make, no creaming butter and sugar or electric mixers required. Apparently it can even be mixed together straight in the baking pan, no bowls necessary.Crazy CakeIngredients
1 1/2 cups plain flour
3 tbsp. cocoa

The fluffiest 7-up pancakes

So since our days of just the two of us, one of our favourite Saturday morning routines is to enjoy a slow leisurely breakfast together as a family.Sometimes we have french toast, or oatmeal porridge, or scrambled eggs and sausages, or  egg and toast muffins or homemade bacon and egg mcmuffins, or the classic favourite… Pancakes!I’m a big fan of Macdonald’s hotcakes. I just find their texture so irresistibly fluffy and light. I’ve tried numerous times to re-create the same fluffiness in my homemade pancakes but always to no avail… until recently when I discovered a magic ingredient… 7-up!And best of all, this simple recipe falls under my four ingredients category! So here’s the recipe…Super light and fluffy 7-Up pancakesIngredients
2 eggs
