big fair bake

The boys and I did a bit of fair trade baking last week.



If you don't get the big deal about fair trade watch this... and then please consider buying fair trade next time you're buying coffee or chocolate or bananas... we can all make a difference.

    1. Click on the links below each photo Simone. I just added walnuts and used chunks of chocolate instead of chocolate chips.

    1. Yes I think it's a bit like using only free range eggs... it's the right thing to do. Once you know the true origins of your food it's hard to forget.

    1. Oh you can make anything dairy free (pretty much). If you get an ice cream machine I have good coconut cream recipes on my recipe page. They're so delicious that even my dairy loving husband gobbles them up.
