ANZAC bickies

There were a few things that you could count on when you visited our grandparents on their farm in outback NSW.

A roast lamb meal
Bourke meat pies for lunch
A biscuit jar full of ANZAC bickie's
(Why is it always about food with us!)

We think Nan's recipe for ANZAC's are the best, they are crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. We would like to share our Nan's recipe with you - let us know what you think.

Olive's ANZAC Biscuits
1 Cup Rolled Oats
3/4 Cup Coconut
1 Cup Plain Flour
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Tsp Bicarb Soda
2 TAB Boiling water
125g Butter
1 TAB Golden Syrup

Preheat oven to 160 degrees
Combine oats, coconut, sugar, flour in large bowl.
Melt butter and syrup.
Mix bicarb soda and water, add to syrup mixture.
Add syrup mixture to dry ingredients, combine.
Spoon out tablespoons of the mixture onto trays.
Bake for 20 minutes (keep an eye on them)
Cool on trays.

Enjoy with a cup of tea, from a tea pot!

Hanging out in the window

Our new window with the beautiful Angus & Celeste hanging planters

Suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Suspended with a super fine, high-strength, stainless steel hanging system that can withstand any environment.

 Each hanging garden comes in a lovely gift box and includes an extension cable to suit high ceilings and a rubber stopper to allow for drip-free indoor use.

Suitable for a wide variety of plants and  are excellent for people with small out door spaces.

The decoration incorporates bright vivid colours, graphics and illustration that are inspired by the natural world.

We think they would make a great wedding, engagement or house warming gift or maybe just a present for yourself?

Warning.....Proceed with extreme caution

A look back at some of the yummy sweet treats Annie has baked for the Fine & Sunny cafe corner over the last few months....

Each one has been through a rigorous taste testing process before it is selected for the hungry Fine & Sunny customers.
It's a hard job.....but somebody has to do it.

Hoppy Easter every bunny!

Two little bunnies for our window, we thought they were both girls....until we came into work the next morning and they had multiplied!


We also have some hot chicks in the window! 

Happy Easter!!
