Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Who doesn't love Fairy Bread? It's a magical, whimsical, simple, yet absolute fantasy food and adored by all Australians. Did you realise that the 24 November, every year, is Fairy Bread Day? It's a day to make Fairy Bread for breakfast, lunch, dinner, as an in-between snack or … just because. No charity involvement here - Fairy Bread Day is just to enjoy the ultimate pleasure of Fairy Bread - the Rainbow food that is Australia's very own invention.

Although the name, Fairy Bread, gives it an air of intricate, mystical magic, Fairy Bread is actually, quite simplistically, a three ingredient treat: a slice of bread spread generously with butter and covered in rainbow sprinkles. It's sparkly, it's fun, it's colourful and surprise, surprise…it's delicious.

The story goes that Fairy Bread was inspired by a Robert Louis Stevenson poem:-

'COME up here, O dusty feet!  
Here is fairy bread to eat.  
Here in my retiring room,  
Children, you may dine  
On the golden smell of broom          
And the shade of pine;  
And when you have eaten well,  
Fairy stories hear and tell.'

Fairy Bread is a perfect addition to children's parties, tea parties and with modern-day trends, perhaps even weddings.

You don't have to be a child to enjoy Fairy Bread - everyone deserves a little colour and sparkle in their snack, even grown-ups.
