a few of my favourite things {May 2013}

Mrs Roo.

This list has been piling up over the past few months and I thought before it gets to a full page long I should really share it with you all! I hope all you mums down here in the Southern Hemisphere had a beautiful mothers day yesterday. I had a great day with the kids, topped off with dinner at my mother-in-laws (always a good thing!). And a very happy Mothers Day to those of you up the top of the world celebrating yours today!

So, I've got a winner from Jude's Wholefood Baking cookbook giveaway last week.... I picked a winner using Random.org and the winner is... Justine who left the comment "I have loved Jude's recipes for years now! I'd love a copy of her new book, with a house full of health nuts to try the recipes on." Email me your details Justine -emma(at)mydarlinglemonthyme(dot)com- and I'll pop the book straight in the post for you. Congrats and thanks to all of you who entered. xx

      I don't think I've ever read a more heartfelt birth story before Tim and even though my births were quick and easy in comparison, your words took me right back there in an instant. So amazing to read it from a Dad's perspective too! Much love xx

    Hi, I've been really enjoying your blog and stashing many recipes for use later. However, I subscribe to Ecomilf (this whole family) and she shared a recipe of yours that I can't find on your site anywhere. It's for Chewy Cranberry, Millet and Pistachio Bars. I've searched all of your recipes and put it into the search engine but nothing is coming up. Can you let me know where to find it please? Thanks Kat
