The boys are obsessed with any type of heavy machinery these days. We actually stalk work sites and do worksite drives by’s in search of machinery working – what has my life come to? The morning we made these cookies it just so happened that a digger and bulldozer were working at our local beach pushing sand to and fro. It was there that we sat for the next couple of hours watching, mimicking, gasping and eating these freshly baked cookies in the perfect winter morning sunshine.

Hey There, I’m Sherilyn the creator of Wholepromise. This is where I venture outside of being a mum, wife and Fertility Nurse Specialist. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Qld, Australia and am spoilt by year round access to Farmers Markets offering a plethora of local, seasonal and organic produce. In all Wholepromise is my style of food, it’s the food I want my boys to appreciate and it’s the food that makes me happy. Styling and photographing it is just another bonus.
