Step into the warmth of Spring


I cherish the first day of Spring, in Australia, it heralds the end of the cool climate and emits the grand feeling of a new awakening with the suns warmth. On the first day of September I fondly remember my grandmother who peacefully passed away on this day reading Dreams of Another Day. I have so many wonderful childhood holiday memories of our time together, spending summer holidays at our favourite beach shack in New Zealand and enjoying her favourite batches of baking – scones, shortbread and chocolate caramel slice. These “secret” family recipes have been passed onto my family and now my children live for her baking through my mother. Picnic treats, holidays away, there were always many homemade biscuit treats to share at any time of the day during those "endless" summer days.




We’d love you to share your special home made holiday treats with us. What are your favourites? Do you have a baking tradition in your family? We'd love to hear and share your stories on our facebook page at: www.facebook.com/holidayshacks. Here's to the advance of Spring and Summer and Happy Holiday baking!




Warm regards


Andrea Wilson, Managing Director
