Calling all Coffee lovers

May 24, 2019
Ok guys... For those that know me I’m a BIG coffee lover! Like, I really, really love coffee. It’s my Mumma secret weapon!  So you can imagine my excitement when I was invited to attend the launch of LOR Barista Coffee Machine. As if that wasn't enough, I got to meet Manu! Omg, double dream come true. We tasted the different espressos and checked out the new machine - epic, by the way! It’s ideal for catching up with friends, as unlike most capsule machines it makes two coffees at once (or a double shot if you like it strong like me!).




Manu Feildel, Australia’s most loved French chef, has teamed up with L’OR Espresso to create cocktails and dessert.



The greatest dessert you’ll ever sip on Café Liegeois au Kahlua It’s French for delicious 





Serves 6 Preparation: 20 minutes (plus 3-4 hours for freezing)


INGREDIENTS

Coffee granita
40g caster sugar
3 x double shot L’OR Barista Selection intensity 13 (freshly brewed, Espresso setting)
60ml dark rum

Mascarpone crème
 60g mascarpone
 60ml pure cream
 15g pure icing sugar
 1 egg yolk

To serve
500ml vanilla bean ice cream 100g Speculaas biscuits, half crushed and the remaining kept whole 3 x double shot L’OR Barista Selection intensity 13, ristretto pour freshly brewed and chilled 6 x 30ml Kahlua shots  Whipped cream, to serve Crushed coffee beans, to decorate

METHOD

1. For the coffee granita, dissolve the sugar into 3 freshly brewed double shot L’OR Barista Selection intensity 13 (using Espresso setting) in a bowl. Allow to cool before adding the rum and pour into a shallow container. Freeze for 3-4 hours before scraping with a fork to break up into small ice crystals and freeze until required.

 2. For the mascarpone cream, place all the ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk until soft peaks form. Refrigerate until needed.

3. Several hours before serving, place 6 serving glasses in the freezer to chill.

 4. To serve, place 1-2 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream into each serving glass, top with a spoonful of mascarpone cream, a spoonful of granita and a sprinkle of Speculaas biscuits. Drizzle over a single shot of chilled double shot L’OR Barista Selection intensity 13 per glass, a shot of Kahlua and finish with whipped cream, a whole Speculaas biscuit and crushed coffee beans as desired.

This recipe has to be my ultimate favourite!  I'm looking forward to my next family night, to really show off my barista skills and with a fabulous dessert like this I'm sure will really impress everyone.


Are you a coffee lover?  What's your favourite dessert using coffee?

Vtech newest products we love

May 21, 2019
You know I’m committed to only sharing things we love on this blog, and  I can honestly say I have loved Vtech since Madison was a baby. We have tried and tested so many of their toys, and every single one is a hit with my girls. The quality of the toys is amazing, and all about educational, interactive learning. Perfect for kids to have independent play while Mum gets jobs done, but they’re also great for full family participation.

Today I want to share two new toys we have been trialling out: 

For Pre-Schoolers 

PAW Patrol Learning Watch – Chase, Marshall, or Skye, RRP $24.95 




The VTech PAW Patrol Learning Watch is a great wearable gadget for children featuring cool sound effects and popular phrases from the show. Like all good watches, along with showing you the time, it also has alarm, timer and stopwatch functions. Join the PAW Patrol and protect Adventure Bay with the four built-in games that help kids recognise patterns, identify animal tracks and pick the right tool for the job, introducing and reinforcing matching, problem solving, animals, basic addition and subtraction. The PAW Patrol Learning Watch includes 12 interchangeable digital clock faces and a glowing light. With the PAW Patrol, no job is too big, no pup is too small. It’s time to join the rescue team! The PAW Patrol Learning Watch, in Marshall, Chase or Skye characters, is suitable for pre-schoolers from 3-6 years, and available from May at Big W, good toy stores and online retailers.

Both the girls loved this, and it’s noticeably helped them improve their time skills. Lots of kids really struggle with telling time on a clock face, especially nowadays when everything is digital! The interchangeable clock styles help them interpret the time in different ways. The games are great for on-the-go, too, and give them all the fun of wearable tech without calls and messages.



Kidizoom DUO 5.0 Camera, RRP $99.95 




Take great photos and videos of you and your friends with the Kidizoom DUO 5.0 dual lens camera. The front and rear lenses can be swapped at the touch of a button, making it simple to take photos, videos, and selfies! Add fun effects, stamps and frames to your photos and videos, or use the auto-portrait feature to take photos automatically. Record your voice and apply funny effects too! Other features include: 4x digital zoom, built-in auto flash, fun learning games, voice changing effects, wacky photo shaker, photo editor, cool built-in games and more. All of this is easily seen on the large 2.4” colour LCD screen. You can also transfer files to your PC to edit and enhance your photos and videos. The Kidizoom DUO 5.0 Camera is suitable for children 3-9 Years, and available in blue and pink now from good toy stores and online retailers, and from Big W in June for a limited time. 

Oh wow, this was a hit! I think I’ve got two future bloggers on my hands, guys! Madison was copying Mummy everywhere we went. I’d find her taking photos of flowers, toys, animals and of course, she’s already nailed the selfie! This is such a great gift for your little blogger mini me!

HOP INTO EASTER AT THE LANGHAM, SYDNEY

April 13, 2019
HOP INTO EASTER AT THE LANGHAM, SYDNEY …This year, The Langham, Sydney presents an enchanting Easter experience for the entire family to enjoy. Festivities begin with the most popular event of the year;
“The Tale of Mr Rabbit” Afternoon Tea throughout the April School Holidays, and finish with Easter Sunday Lunch. Executive Chef Dave Whitting prepares to transform the hotel lobby
to feature enthralling and colourful chocolate Easter egg displays.





My girls and I attend the Tale of Mr Rabbit and had an absolute ball. It was a really lovely experience to share with my daughters, and gave me a bit of a glimpse into the future and what it’ll be like to be going to afternoon teas and girly events together when they’re older.



For the Tale of Mr Rabbit we got dressed up and got fully in the spirit of things. It was so sweet seeing them excited to get glam and head to our girly afternoon together. There’s something special about having a luxury treat as mother and daughters, I think. We even met Mr Rabbit and indulged in tasty treats from the renowned Langham chefs. The girls got stuck into some colouring, while this tired Mumma had a well-earned glass of sparkling!



The food was incredible, as can only be expected from the Langham, and we’d highly recommend this event for something a little bit different to do with your kids these school holidays.



Bookings can be made by contacting tlsyd.rsvn@langhamhotels.com or by calling
directly on 02 9256 2222. Hop to it! See more details on the event program below.

The Tale of Mr Rabbit
The Langham, Sydney’s team of pastry chefs bring you a rabbit warren of Afternoon Tea
delights over three weekends throughout the April School Holidays.


The range of sweet items on the menu will include carrot and ginger edible garden beds,
golden egg bonbons, hot cross bun macaroons, mandarin and white chocolate eggs, Mr
Rabbit tartlets, and more.

These will be accompanied by carrot cake and vanilla scones with
jam and cream.

Savoury items include tuna, crème fraîche and caviar tartlets, beef and potato miniature
pies, mushroom and gruyere cheese puffs and kingfish tartare, and lime and coriander
charcoal cones. These will be served with Langham’s signature finger sandwiches filled with a choice of chicken tarragon and spinach, or curried egg and rocket. A selection of tea or
barista coffee will also be included for all guests, including the optional hot chocolate with
marshmallows for children.



Adults will receive a complimentary glass of sparkling on arrival, along with an Easter gift for all diners, and colouring activities for children. Guests will be greeted by Mr Rabbit himself
during their dining experience!

Seating is from 12:00pm to 2:30pm, or 3:00pm to 5:30pm. Bookings are available on all
Saturdays and Sundays from 13th April to the 28th April, excluding Easter Sunday. Children
aged 4 -12 dine for $45.00 and adults, for $95.00

Otway Fly Treetop Adventures is home to ten enchanting fairy houses for visitors to discover as they

dainty houses to spell out the magic word to collect a reward.
Nathan Bridgeman, Attraction Manager at Otway Fly, says the fairy houses have been immensely
popular since they arrived in late December, which prompted the team to extend their residency into
the April school holidays.
“We’ve had such a delightful reaction from our visitors about the fairy houses created by Men’s Shed.
People young and old have enjoyed discovering the little homes as they meander through the forest
at Otway Fly,” said Nathan.
Volunteers from Men’s Shed Colac built the ten fairy houses using reclaimed wood from the Otway
