Meet Billy, fab and fun fruit vendor at Prahran Market and the apple of my eye. 😁 haha
Although land was sold throughout Prahran in 1840, it wasn’t until the gold rush days of the 1850s that the community really began to grow, leading to Prahran’s first Council being elected. Prahran was famous for its small farms and market gardens, and goods were sold or bartered locally or carted into Melbourne. What was needed was a central market place in the municipality of Prahran. In 1864 this was organised by the Prahran Council and a smaller Prahran Market, Melbourne’s oldest Market was born. It wasn’t until 1891 that the Prahran Market that we now know and love opened in its current location on Commercial Road.
These Low Carb Sugar Free Keto Blueberry Muffins with Almond Flour are SO tender and moist you’ll never believe they are healthy and gluten free! Perfect for breakfast or snacks!
#Recipe below: *
3 Cups Almond flour (300g)
4 Tbsp Coconut flour, packed (32g)
1 Tbsp Baking powder
1 tsp Sea salt
1 tsp Baking soda
3/4 Cup Monkfruit (or granulated sweetener of choice)
7 Tbsp Coconut oil, melted
3 Large Eggs, at room temperature (this is key)
1/2 Cup Unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp Vanilla extract
2/3 Cup Fresh blueberries, (105g)
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin pan with oil spray.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat together the monkfruit, coconut oil, eggs, applesauce and vanilla until well blended.
4. Stir in the almond flour mixture, along with the blueberries until well combined. Let the batter stand for 5 minutes so the coconut flour can begin to absorb the moisture.
5. Divide by 12 muffin cavities (I like using a big ice cream scoop so that the muffins cook up with really domed tops!) and bake until very golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 24-25 minutes.
6. Let cool for 15 minutes. Then, gently run a knife around the edges of each muffin to loosen them. Then, let cool COMPLETELY in the pan before trying to take them out.
These Kiwi Watermelon Fruit Popsicles are made of 100% fruit & completely delicious & satisfying for those days you don't know what the kids want to snack on!
#Recipe below: *
4 kiwis, peeled
3 cups of seedless watermelon
optional if necessary: a splash of water (I used coconut water to help blend up the kiwi. The watermelon needed no extra liquid)
1. You can choose which fruit you want to blend first. Remember that whichever fruit you pour into your mould first will be the fruit on the top of the popsicle while you’re holding it.
2. Add the kiwi into a blender or food processor and blend until fully liquefied. For the kiwi, I added in a splash of water to help. If you don’t have a blender or food processor, you can always mash the fruit thoroughly with a fork.
3. Pour the kiwi into the bottom of your popsicles moulds and place in the freezer for at least an hour.
4. When ready, blend up all of the water melon and pour it into the popsicle moulds on top of the mostly frozen kiwi.
5. Place the popsicle sticks into the watermelon puree and place the mould back into the freezer for at least an additional hour.
6. Once done, run the mould under warm water to help release the popsicles. ENJOY!!

My father grows a garden in the backyard. It’s BIG yard, so often he grows things such as lettuce, peppers, mint.... he even planted some Asian pear trees! -
After I carved this, I said “Ba! (Dad, in Vietnamese) Give me your hands!” He shuffled over and opened his palms for my carved cantaloupe. He didn’t say anything as I got in position and took photo after photo, trying different angles, different perspectives... In the end, I settled on this; a simple top-down view of his hands holding the fruit. The hands that provided for me and my family, the hands that cradled us, and the hands that silently support us even to this day, in his old age. I love my dad very much, and even though he says very little, his actions speak volumes.
