In case you didn’t know from the announcement on my instagram account, my DIY Fruit Coasters was featured in Nest Magazine’s first issue. Nest is a new publication that runs on the reverse of already popular RELAX publication that comes with The Canberra Times Sunday paper. I am delighted to be featured again inside the new Nest publication issued today with a printable exclusively designed for the publication. If you’re in Canberra, make sure to check out the article inside Nest, published today April 26th.
I hope that these printable Pink Flamingos will cheer up your Sunday and weeks ahead! You can download more Pink Flamingos printable templates here:
This wintery printable might not make sense for those on the other side of the world, but for us in Australia (& New Zealand), it is perfect. This is going to be a short but sweet post, as I have a million errands to run before leaving the country this weekend (I’m going to my sunny Indonesia & spring-y Europe! Goodbye Canberra’s harsh winter!). But I hope you guys enjoy this cute printable I’ve created for you, wherever you are! Download the Smitten Mitten DIY Bookmark template at the end of this post, and instructions will be provided on the printable sheet.

One of my resolutions for this year is to eat healthier. Ever since I found out that a person with my blood type will react better to Vegetarian diet, I have been eating less red meat (baby steps!). I could never say no to seafood, especially fish dishes, and I still need my occasional chicken Banh Mi. I am also trying to eat as many fresh foods as possible and stay away from junk food, anything with too much sugar, and eat more things that are actually beneficial for my body. One thing that I find really hard to cut back is Pasta. Pasta is my favourite go-to meal, and I find that it’s very easy to whip up a great pasta dish. All I need is a few cloves of garlic, dashes of olive oil, some herbs and mushrooms or cherry tomatoes. Pasta is not exactly unhealthy, but for someone who’s also trying to cut back on carbs, it is not exactly the kind of food I could eat everyday. Thankfully, I found recipes for zucchini pasta or “zoodles”, and loving it!
To help me find ideas on what to cook everyday, I have been collecting Vegetarian or Pescetarian recipes on pinterest! Even though it’s okay to keep recipes on Pinterest and other recipe apps, it was hard to tell the difference between the ones that I’ve tried and liked and the ones that I have not yet tried or tried and dislike. I like to write recipes that I like on printable recipe cards and keep them inside my Kikki-K recipe box.
I have created these fruit and veg printable recipe cards for you, and me, to download and keep our favourite recipes! I know, the world’s debating on whether tomato is a fruit or vegetable. So if you’re asking “where’s the veg?”, you’ll know which side of the debate I’m on :P
Enjoy your recipe cards, and if you like this post, check out this Free Printable Recipe Cards (Retro) to add to your collection of recipe cards.
