Recipe: Anzac Biscuits With Raisins

I love baking when it's quick and easy, and these biscuits tick both of these criteria!

I make them quite often because they taste sooooo good, and aren't too high in fat compared to most biscuits you can bake. 

I got the recipe from Jamie Oliver and then slightly tweaked it by taking a couple of things out and adding raisins. 

When you make the dough you can even bag some of it up and put it in the freezer to save you having to prepare it the next time you want some!

    Film Review: Snoopy and Charlie Brown The Peanuts Movie

    Snoopy And Charlie Brown The Peanuts Movie has been released on DVD so Chunk and I have had a sneaky peak to let you know what it's like!

    The story is about the well known characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy and has been made by those clever people who gave us the Ice Age films.

    The Peanuts Movie sees Charlie Brown facing an epic and heroic quest, and it also has Snoopy going head to head with his nemesis the Red Baron.

    The moral of the story is that every underdog has their day, so never give up.

    The DVD has some great special features including all-new Snoopy snippets, step-by-step drawing tutorials, dance and sing along sections and Megham Trainor's music video soundtrack.

    As a Meghan Trainor fan I quite enjoyed watching the behind the scenes footage of how her video was made, and Chunk liked the extra Snoopy snippets!

    Chunk really enjoyed the film and his favourite character was the rather cheeky, but loving Snoopy. It was refreshing for me to watch the film as I grew up watching the cartoon so I was eager to see if it had changed. Thankfully the makers have kept the same style and character personalities as the original so I got to regress back to my youth for an hour!

    Chunk and I found it quite an easy watch, so it's definitely something that would add to a chilled out afternoon during the half term.

    Gift Ideas for Father's Day

    Snapfish Father's Day Gift Ideas

    Father's Day is fast approaching (June 19) so I've been hunting for ideas for Chunk's dad.

    For other celebrations such as Mother's Day and Valentine's Day I've tended to use Snapfish for gifts because they do a great range of personalised presents.

    This year I decided to make his dad a personalised Father's Day card using a photo of them that I know is one of his favourites, as well as a keyring with the same image.

    I really like the way you can use images from your computer or social media and can add different texts and templates to make it totally unique to your loved one. While I was at it I even managed to make a birthday card for my mum's upcoming birthday and printed off lots of holiday photos for Chunk's holiday life story work that I have started to work on.
