Hi there!

I’m slowly working towards some simplicity within the home, but hey! It’s a lot of hard work!

I love having a go at growing my own veges and always use herbs fresh from my garden. I try to plant from seed whenever I can and have learnt to save and share my own seed for the following year. I make Award Winning preserves and pickles; and my husband brews Award Winning boutique beers as well. I love to stockpile and try to limit quick trips to the shops. I dabble in bread making and enjoy making my own stocks too.

I enjoy feeding my family good hearty meals, nothing like those tiny restaurant stacks you have to look for on the plate. My husband maintains our vehicles and machinery and we both enjoy fabricating on a small scale mostly relying on metal & timber recyclers for any materials needed.

While I don’t always have time to reply to comments, I love reading them. I hope you enjoy your stay and I hope you learn something new because I love sharing what I learn, and I'm always looking for another new skill myself.

Anzac Biscuits

Some people call them Anzac Cookies...I know them as Anzac Biscuits.......

When researching my family history, I love to get a view of a great great great grandfathers' handwriting....or anyone else's for that matter....it is a huge thrill to get a glimpse into the past through handwriting....

"Where is she going with all this?"... I bet your'e wondering.......Well, as we are heading into a future with handwriting a thing of the past...I like to write out some of our popular recipes...I don't have the prettiest handwriting, but it's mine!....and I like to think that one day, someone will cherish the recipes I have written .......... just the way I  cherish my Nan's recipes....

So here is the recipe for Anzac Biscuits....keep an eye out for a photo of the biscuits after they are baked........I will be baking them in the next few days.


the quantity should read TEASPOONS....not TBLSPNS.

Sorry for any inconvenience...(When I get time I will rewrite the recipe and scan in a new photo.)


  1. Hi Nelly marry I have chosen you to receive the Kreative
    blogger award .
    Sherrie from Simpleliving :)

  2. Wow Sherrie, I am truly humbled by this award. Thank-you soooo much...

  3. Thanks for the recipe. I decided to give your anzac biscuits a go(seen as it was anzac day)now I have tried to make them before but usually fail! My family inform me that the batch I made using your recipe are delicious :) Thanks

    From a NZ reader of your blog.

  4. Your'e welcome Kathleen, I'm so glad your family loved them. Thanks for reading my blog.

  5. Hi I have just made 4x the amount and I think there may be a mistake in the recipe. Where it states " 1 1/2 tblsps" should it read "teaspoons"? I have just tasted these and they are inedible. I think it is the bicarbonate.
    Could you please let me know if this is a mistake.

  6. Dearest Swissgal, I am truly sorry for the error in the recipe. I do think it should be written as teaspoons. Your correct! Thanks for pointing this out for me...and I'm terribly sorry for the waste in ingredients.

  7. Hi Narelle, thanks for getting back to me! Just one of those things I guess. They looked really great too! Never mind; I've used your yoghurt pizza base recipe several times so that kinda makes up for it! I really enjoy checking your blog- lots of great stuff. I live in the UK and have family in Australia and it is interesting to learn other ideas and how people live down under!
