Jan 2013 Newsletter

It's a brand new year and while the festive season may be behind us, there's plenty to look forward to because this year our resolution is to pack your year full of sweet, delicious surprises!

Back to school time is the perfect opportunity to start packing fun lunchboxes. As a parent you want to give your kids something that's yummy, but nutritious too! Making up lunchboxes five days a week can become b-o-r-i-n-g! We think every mom needs to have a stash of tasty lunchbox treats up her sleeve, so we have come up with these to help you make break time more exciting! When you pack a slice of this delicious banana bread, or a tasty crunchie or two, you are sure to have an empty lunchbox returned to you at the end of the day! With these moreish recipes your child will be encouraged to eat all the goodness you packed, whilst getting fuel for learning too, and won't be willing to trade their lunch!

Beginning on January 19, it's a great opportunity to gather the family round the TV to cheer on Bafana Bafana and the rest of the African teams.

Being the height of summer, the heat will be on in more ways than one, so make sure you have some of our ice cold passion fruit drink to keep the heat down, along with a plate or two of our special biscuits to keep hunger at bay. These are the top recipes from a biscuit baking competition, and are all tried and tested winners, which you are sure to enjoy.

If you're a romantic at heart and you're looking for a reason to get creative in the kitchen, then look no further than Valentine's Day. Young or old, single or coupled, the international day of love is the perfect occasion to treat loved ones and impress the rest! So why not try our stunning macaroons with white chocolate ganache and strawberry filling? They sure melted our hearts...

This time of year is also the perfect time for deciduous fruit - that's fruit that falls naturally from the tree - as it is in season and very affordable.
Try our upside-down apple tart recipe. While it may be French in origin, it's become so popular here at home that we can almost call it our new melktert! Experiment by using other fruits such as pears, nectarines and apricots. Or why not make mini fruit tarts and serve as individual portions for a creative twist?

Whatever your reason to get back in the kitchen and add a little sweetness to your day, we wish you all a sweet and fruitful 2013.

Yours in indulgence
