this and that

  1. Sweet cornbread (recipe from here). This simple recipe was so good, I made a double batch twice last week. I just couldn't stop eating it. Not so good.
  2. Even Violet (not a huge sweet fan) loved it.
  3. Garlic from the garden. My first ever garlic harvest. Little successes like these are most encouraging.
  4. Violet favourite combination - skirts over pants with crocs. Only a toddler could get away with that!
  5. Variegated thread for the christmas ornament swap. Too see what other swappers are up to this week, you can have a peek here.
  6. Peeled roasted capsicum with olive oil, sea salt and garlic, just like my mother in law makes.
  7. Pillows as seats.
  8. Felt for christmas ornaments and things (purchased here).

So what have you been up to lately? Baking? Making? Other projects?


  1. just beautiful Tan! I'm too scared to make cornbread for fear that i will devour it all! love your little misses fashion ensemble and i hope that I can harvest garlic soon too!!! have a happy week xx

  2. I love anything that requires a roasting dish to bake it in. Will try this. I love your No Knead Bread - it's becoming our "weekend" bread. Have a lovely week. Elaina xo

  3. Hi Tania,
    That corn bread looks divine, must try that. Same with the capsicum.... our capsicum looks like it is making a miraculous comeback, so fingers crossed!

  4. Sorry, this one: http://makesewbakegrow.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/finding-focus-and-more-makings.html

  5. Loving the colours and soft look of those rolls of felt!

  6. Beautiful snapshots of your world! Roasted capsicum is the only way my hubby and my baby girl will eat the stuff (having said that, capsicum is THE only thing they don't like!) And cornbread...must try it. All your recipe recommendations have been gold! Plenty of making and baking going on here. Pottering with my babes, paints and plants. Life is good.

  7. Right now some ethiopian honey bread is in the oven and I'm also working on an ornament for the swap. I putting the sweet cornbread on my must try list.

    The thread and felt for your ornament looks so inspiring. I can't wait to see what you create.

  8. I've never really heard of cornbread but I may just have to give it a go.
    The lollie coloured felt will make stunning ornaments.

  9. So much good stuff!!!!! That capsicum... mmmm!

  10. Oooh, I can't wait to see what you make with the felt and thread! There are certainly some lovely ornaments in the works for the swap. My Country Living magazine arrived yesterday and there are some sweet tutorials in there too. Even the Big W catalogue that came in the mail today was decorated with hand stitched felt ornaments! :)

  11. What have I been making: - Turkish Bride Soup and Lacumah Bread from the latest Annabel Langbein cookbook- you would probably enjoy her cookbooks too.
    Marshmallow slice for my cherubs lunchbox treats. On the sewing front I have some Christmas decorations to make and I am attempting linen rabbits. Loving the variegated thread of yours. Have a fabulous week

  12. Congrats on the garlic!!! That is sure exciting! Oh, where would my food life be without garlic!!!!
