The Bee's Knees

The Bee’s Knees

I’m thrilled to share a new movie trailer with you. Called Maya the Bee, it’s a super sweet feature film about a young female bee who decides to leave the hive to experience the freedom to explore life outside the rules and strict regimen of her hive. The film touches on issues such as conformity, risk, self-discovery...

Sunday lunch anyone?

Soy-poached salmon, soba noodles and winter greens Looking for an easy dish to serve for lunch or dinner? With delicate Asian flavours, low in fat, yet warming and filling, I urge you to give this one a go ~ it might just end up being a staple in your recipe repertoire.  I found the original recipe on...

Let me grant you a wish…

Read on for your chance to win a wish… Sitting on my stovetop is an old Le Creuset dish. I bought it when I first left home. It was hugely expensive, costing me the equivalent of a month’s salary, which ironically meant that I couldn’t afford food to cook in it for sometime. It was...
2GB's Blog of the Week

2GB’s Blog of the Week

This morning Caro & Co was named Blog of the Week on Andrew Moore’s morning 2GB radio programme. Whoop! Big thanks to the great blogger/brand agency Catablog for putting us in touch. Andrew and I had fun chatting about kids, grandparents, the trend known as down-ageing (I encourage it) and digging out Bindiis. Have a...

At my table…

When I was growing up, I knew that every Sunday at 1.00pm I was expected at my mother’s table. She would cook lunch for whoever came. On average that meant around 20 people. It was chaotic; with people jostling over one another to be heard, to be served, to be first to rifle through the...

From little things…

Read on for details about a inspired competition for your kids. They could win some amazing prizes for themselves and their school, just for doing something that comes naturally to them… Children have the naivety to imagine possibilities that transcend what is now, and what is assumed to be the natural order of things. Children summon up the courage to...

Fox in digital Socks…

By 2020 there will be 7 times more connected devices than there are people on the planet* This morning sitting at the breakfast table, we watched with surprise as a sleek and very bold red fox trotted along our fence line, past the kitchen window and up the hill towards the gate. Two fluffy designer dogs were...
Sweet potato, orange and fennel soup

Sweet potato, orange and fennel soup

My entire household is sniffing and sneezing. This is the view from our window this morning. Can you see the snowflakes?  It’s as cold as a witch’s clacker and I’m going to send four children outside. Before doing this and in an attempt to ward off any winter bugs, Grace and I have made a delicious soup...
Children, sound and security...

Children, sound and security…

Last night I slept soundly. I closed my eyes and woke 8 hours later feeling good. I’ve not slept this way for some years. Blame age, eating too late, too much red wine, a husband with a chronic snoring issue, a cat with a tendency to tear at the furniture at 3am, sleepwalking children; what...
Family meal time. Heaven or hell?

Family meal time. Heaven or hell?

I’m a big fan of the team at Deakin University.  They are doing good work looking at the habits of children regarding food, play, exercise and general wellbeing.  I’d love you to support them by taking part in their latest survey if you have a few minutes to spare.  If you do, you’ll go into...
Memory Maker

Memory Maker

In this month’s issue of Australian Country Style (July 2014), the lovely Editor-in-Chief Victoria Carey, has given me 6 pages in which to write about my true passion.  “Making Memories” is the story of our garden at the farm.  Its history, my favourite things within it and our plans to continue to layer it with memories.  It...
