HANDMADE GIFT IDEA: Cordless Drill Storage and Charging Station

Ok, so this one requires a few more woodworking skills than other DIY projects, but what an awesome idea! We love that everything is kept together on the wall, rather than the workbench or floor - and it looks great! I reckon we all know someone who'd love one of these:-)

My Favourite Quote: David Black, actor, director, producer and musician.

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?" - Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14



"I felt that the first part was about the balance of how much you do for others as opposed to thinking about yourself, but the second part had me perplexed for a long time. I then realised that it was about learning to speak up and asking for what is due to you." - David Black.

My Favourite Quote: Lauren Clemett, www.ultimatebusinesspropellor.com

"You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself, any direction you choose." 
- Dr Suess



"I loved Dr Suess books as a kid (and still do) - something about the rhythm of the rhyme and the lessons in the lyrics. But this quote really connected with me when I began helping people with personal branding because, in an ever increasingly confusing and overwhelming world, I think it's important to retain your sense of direction.

We are constantly being told we should be on social media, connect on LinkedIn, go networking, write a book, start a blog or a vlog or a podcast...in reality, once you know where you want to go in life, you can choose your own direction instead of listening to what others think you should do." - Lauren Clemett.

My Favourite Quote: Ron Lee, The Corporate Ninja

"Most of the world's social problems are caused by people being concerned about what other people think of them. People think about themselves 95% of the time, so if someone REALLY hates you, they have a maximum of 5%. If someone hates you for a characteristic, someone else will like you equally for the same characteristic, so you might as well be yourself." 
- John Savage

- Anatole France



"This quote is one I go back to each time I move to a new country. It inspires me to keep going, accept to turn a page and start afresh." - Solène, Be Beyond Borders

Solène, storyteller and globe-trotter extraordinaire, runs the blog Be Beyond Borders, a fantastic resource for global nomads. She is also the author of Where to Next? a memoir about travelling and living abroad and how that changes one's perception of where or what 'home' actually is.

"Imagine what you could do if you knew you couldn't fail."




"I think this quote is adapted from Robert H Schuller.... I actually found it on a bumper sticker. I lost over 50kg and kept it off for over 15 years! So I lost 45 kg in 33 weeks, kept that off and then lost another 8.5kg after that. In total, I lost over 50% of my original body weight." - Sally Symonds, www.sallysymonds.com

My Favourite Quote: Chris J Reed, Black Marketing

"It's not what you know, but who you know that matters."



"My late Grandad told me when I was 9 that it's "not what you know but who you know" that mattered. 

I have always used that adage to focus on networking and relationships rather than qualifications and sure enough all my life who I know has changed my life rather than what I know...to the extent that I moved from the UK to Singapore and started Black Marketing which is all about who you know on LinkedIn." - Chris J Reed, Black Marketing

The best advice my mum gave me: Jane Wilson, Fantastic Cleaners Melbourne

"The best advice my mum gave me was...to never give up. There were many points in my life, when the things I wanted from life seemed to be too difficult or complicated, so I wanted to quit, but my mum never let me. She always said that the best things take time, effort, some hair pulling and sleepless nights."
- Jane Wilson, Fantastic Cleaners Melbourne

Mother's Day Recipe: Grandma’s Baklava

Honey, nuts and cinnamon are such a comforting combination, especially when layered between sheets of filo pastry in this delicious Baklava treat. This recipe can be made in advance, and presents beautifully in a tin as a gorgeous handmade Mother's Day gift. 

Ingredients:
Serves 15 (or one hungry mum!)

  • 200g pistachios, plus extra chopped pistachios to garnish
  • 200g walnuts
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 150g unsalted butter, melted
  • 375g filo pastry
  • HONEY SYRUP
  • 2/3 cup caster sugar
  • 2/3 cup boiling water
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 cinnamon quills
  • 12 cloves


1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (160 degrees Celsius fan-forced). Grease a Pyrex Simply Store 23.4cm x 18.8cm x 6.8cm (2.6L/11 cup capacity) glass baking dish with melted butter.
2. In a food processor, combine nuts, sugar and cinnamon and pulse to finely chop. 
3. Unwrap filo sheets and cut to fit dish snuggly. Cover with a damp tea towel.
4. Layer one-third of the filo pastry in dish, brushing butter between each layer. Scatter half the nut mixture evenly over. Top with half the remaining pastry, brushing butter between each layer. Scatter over remaining nuts, top with remaining filo, brushing butter between each layer. Cover with the lid and chill for 10 minutes. Use a sharp knife to cut into 5cm diamonds, cutting through all the pastry layers.
5. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until golden. If the pastry is browning too quickly, cover loosely with foil.
6. Meanwhile, for the honey syrup, peel zest from lemon and juice flesh. Combine sugar, water, honey, lemon zest, cinnamon and cloves in a Pyrex Simply Store (460ml/2 cup capacity) glass container. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Cover loosely with the lid. Microwave for 3 minutes on high. Add the lemon juice, stir through and set aside to cool.
7. Remove and discard lemon zest, cinnamon quills and cloves from the syrup. Carefully and slowly pour syrup over baklava so it absorbs evenly. Set baklava aside at room temperature for 6 hours to cool completely (or overnight if possible). Scatter with extra pistachios if liked.

Tip: Baklava will keep in container at room temperature, covered with the lid for up to 3 days.

- Kathy Fray, author


I followed that advice. My fiancé was almost 26yrs when we got married (we’d been together 5 years).

We’re now both 53yrs and still happily married – I think she must have been right!!

MOTHER'S DAY GIFT OF THE DAY: Suck UK Colour Changing Umbrella $69.95


Dreary rainy days be gone!

Mother's Day Recipe: Mushroom Risotto with Pinot Gris

Risotto is a decadent dish that would make a fantastic entree or main dish for Mother's Day, especially this mushroom-flavoured, creamy, cheesy version with Pinot Grigio or Pinot Gris. 

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups Arborio rice
  • 450g mushrooms of choice – sliced
  • 5-6 cups chicken stock 
  • ½ cup Pinot Gris
  • 2 shallots – chopped (Don’t cut too finely.)
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil



Method:
1.    Place stock in a saucepan over low heat. It should simmer very gently, not bubble or boil.

2.    Take half the butter in a large frying pan and place it on low heat. Once melted and foaming, add the mushrooms. Season with salt, then stir to coat well in butter. Cook, occasionally stirring until they are browned. Transfer the mushrooms and any pan juices to a bowl.

3.    Return the frying pan to heat and pour in the olive oil. Once hot, tip in the shallots. Cook on low heat, stirring regularly, for 10 minutes, until softened. Then, pour in the Arborio and stir until every grain is slick.

4.    Allow the rice to get slightly golden, and then pour in the wine. Let the rice fully absorb the wine. The alcohol is going to burn off, and only the flavour will be soaked up by the rice.

5.    When the wine has been completely absorbed, add a ladle of hot stock. Stir, allow the stock to be absorbed. As you stir the rice, you encourage it to release its starch, turning the liquid in the pan into a beautiful sauce. Keep stirring and adding more ladles of stock until each is absorbed.

6.    After you add the last ladle of stock to the pan, add the reserved mushrooms, the remaining butter and the cheese. Stir till everything is beautifully incorporated, ladle out onto plates and serve immediately!

Modify it to your liking – you can always add peas, ham, chicken… the possibilities are endless!

Mother's Day Recipes: Avocado Toast with Tabasco

You can never have enough avo-on-toast recipes in your repertoire, and this one will definitely give you a morning wake-up call with the added hit of Tabasco!  

Ingredients:
Serves 2
Prep Time: 12 minutes

  • 2 slices of thick-cut country bread  
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 50g celery, diced widthwise (cut to just under 1cm chunks)
  • 50g Persian cucumber, thinly sliced widthwise
  • ½ tbsp white wine vinegar
  • Friendly pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp TABASCO® Sauce
  • 1 avocado
  • 4 slices carved chicken breast (optional)
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds 
  • Flaky salt to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste 
  • 50g of the inner light green leaves of celery (optional)



Method:
1. Brush two slices of bread with the melted butter. Lightly toast bread, if desired, but ensure bread is cooled before adding vegetable topping. 

2. In a bowl, combine the celery, cucumber, white wine vinegar, salt and TABASCO® Sauce. It should be spicy and bright in flavor.

3. Cut the avocado in half. Use your knife, safely, to remove the pit. Take a spoon and place it between the skin and the flesh and gently move it around the top of the avocado and then down around the base in order to carve the avocado out from its skin. Place the two sides of avocado face down on a cutting board and cut each half into 5 or 6 pieces lengthwise. Fan out the two halves of the avocado.  

4. Build your toast: using a slotted spoon, place an equal amount of the vegetable mixture on each toast. Then place your deli meat (optional). 

5. Place your knife underneath the avocado fan to lift up and place on top of the toasts.

6. Finish Avocado Toast with a healthy helping of sesame seeds, flaky salt and freshly cracked pepper.

7. Finally – take the inner celery leaves and give them a quick toss in the remaining celery/cucumber liquid. Place on top of the toasts to give them a finishing touch. Enjoy!

This recipe was created by chef Jessica Koslow of Sqirl (U.S.) to celebrate TABASCO®'s 150th anniversary.

💝 Gifts For The Best Mum EVER! 🎁

Gifts for the best mum, EVER...

In my grandmother's kitchen, hung a decorative ceramic plate that said, "A good example is the best teacher". It took me a very long time to fully grasp what this meant. As time went by, I realised that virtues such as kindness, honesty, patience, (as well as many more) had been instilled in me not through years of schooling, but by watching my grandma and my mother practice what they preached, year after year, after year. Setting a positive example for our children all the time is much harder than it appears (especially at the end of a long day), but it's what we aspire to as parents. This year I encourage you to take a moment and think of the lessons you learned from your mum, not by being 'taught', but simply by following her example.
