Cheese and Vegemite Scrolls

*Vegemite is an acquired Aussie taste, but this is another simple, much-loved recipe in my house that is great for snacks and lunchboxes- Bella 🙂 *

vegemite scrolls

4 sheet puff pastry-thawed

1/4 cup Vegemite

3 cups grated tasty cheese

1 egg- beaten


1.) Preheat oven to 220 degree Celsius. Line three baking tray with baking paper.

2.) Place pastry, one sheet at a time, on a cutting board. Spread vegemite over pastry evenly. Sprinkle cheese over vegemite.

3.) Starting with the side closest to you, roll up pastry. Be careful not to roll too tight.

4.) Cut each roll into 5 even pieces. Place each scroll, cut-side up, onto baking trays. Allow room for spreading. Brush the top of each scroll with beaten egg.

5.) Bake for 15-20 min or until pastry is golden and cheese is melted.

6.) Allow to cool on tray for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.


Paper snowflakes- kids crafts

I’m sorry, this blog has been sorely neglected. I realise that Christmas (and New Year’s for that matter) is long over and almost forgotten already…but there are still countries experiencing winter…so paper snowflakes are still  a great craft to do with your children (or store the idea away for next Christmas)

My kids and I had a blast creating these snowflakes to decorate our house for Christmas. This project lasted for hours!! We made teeny-tiny ones…and very large ones….our glass sliding door looked fantastic!!!

Use coloured paper for a more eye catching effect!

Happy Easter everyone!
