Weekend Medley

It’s finally the weekend, time to sleep in and take things easy (hopefully for you too). On weekend happenings over here, lately I have been enjoying having my girls in the kitchen – they are keen to help with baking, cooking & cleaning up! My littlest 2.5yr old LOVES to peel onions…I hear you – I’m enjoying it while it lasts. With all this help, I have been on a bread-baking hum each weekend (banana bread, coconut bread, etc.) and breakfast time has been quite a treat. There’s usually mini muffin versions for hungry school lunch boxes too. 

To wrap up the week, here are my top 7 finds for the week.
