Chia Seeds Gel as Egg Substitute |

I have a slight obsession with banana loaf. If you ask my beloved, maybe “slight” is an understatement ha! I have several banana loaf recipes on my blog and I have just featured a vegan and dairy friendly version two weeks ago.

When it comes to baking, one of the frequently asked questions I received was what I would do to substitute egg.

Blogger Series 1 vegeTARAian |


Hi, I’m Tara Mathews, the brains behind vegeTARAian – a Sydney food and travel blog sharing vegetarian experiences including cooking, eating local and travel eats.

I created vegeTARAian in January 2012 as a creative outlet for sharing my love of food. It has also taken me on a journey to learn more about food and cooking. Over time the blog has led to requests for product and restaurant reviews and the exposure has also been a jump start into freelance food writing.

I do love a rice bowl meal.  It is comforting, usually easy to make and it doesn’t hurt that I am obsess with rice!


[Recreation . Organised] Free Printables on Meal Planning & Grocery List (A5 sized set on one A4 paper)

Free Printables on Meal Planning & Grocery List (A5 sized set on one A4 paper) |

I have this obsession with agendas and organisers especially the ones with pretty patterns and colours. I used to have multiple notebooks for personal, work and blogging which I am at the point of consolidating all into one organiser. It is kinda ridiculous to carry 3 notebooks in one handbag no?

I tried to search online for an organiser which can meet my new organiser requirement ( #firstworldproblem). Then I discovered the Erin Condren Life Planner which I almost purchased but got a little shock with the shipping cost to Australia. I was a little disappointed but the silver lining was the motivation to create my own organiser instead.

It started from buying a two-D-ring A5 binder from Officeworks, a packed of 5 J Burrows coloured dividers as well as J Burrows notepad inserts. I was having problem of finding a dated planner that will fit the two ring A5 sized binder. So this had really prompted me to search online for free dated planner printables. Finally, I have found THE ONE from What I liked about this one was it was two A5s templates set on an A4 sheet which was a life saver especially when my local Officeworks does not print in A5. :/ Another plus was A5 papers are quite expensive as compared to A4 papers so it worked out to be cheaper to print two A5s on an A4 sheet and simply cut it in half. I have to cut mine with a pair of scissors but I think you can go to Officeworks to have it done for you.

Now let the fun part begin
