Which cafes make the best coffee in your suburb?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, we all know Kiwis love coffee but a survey has found that Auckland coffee drinkers are more likely to buy their coffee than Kiwis from the regions. A third of Aucklanders buy at least half of their weekly coffees and most preferred a flat white. How often do you buy coffee out? What do you usually order? And which local cafes do you think make the best coffee? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Recipe: Shortbread

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

Looking for a Christmas Special Recipe? Try baking our delicious easy Shortbread recipe.

This classic shortbread recipe is based on one from Edmond's Cookbook and is great to get the kids started on. Most shortbread recipes use caster sugar but I find that beginner cooks have greater success using icing sugar which is quick to cream.

225 g Butter, cut into cubes

225 g Flour

125 g Cornflour

125 g Icing sugar

Check out the full recipe on the link below.

Last Call - Christmas Day Lunch Invite for our beloved Elders ❤️🎅

Kim Neighbourly Lead from Mount Roskill

Closing invites on Sunday 15th December.

Howdy Neighbours :-)

My tween daughter and I (Single mum) would like to invite an elderly person or 5 into our home to share a meal together. (LOL So far we have 10 of us attending).

We are well aware that there are many out there who spend this Special day alone. This year, you don't need to.

Last year, on Christmas Day, we invited our Neighbours over, and ended up with 15 of us here. It was a wonderful time.

This year, our family are having an early, and a late, get together.

In the past, we have volunteered at the City Mission Dinners.

This year, it's all about YOU!! Our elders ❤️

If you are an elder, or you know of an elderly person or couple, who will be spending their Christmas Day alone this year, please get in contact with us for a chat. We would love to hear from you.

Come to our home. Share in some joy and have a few laughs over a meal and bubbles (Sparkling Grape Juice/Lemonade).

It is good for my daughter to see these things happen, and for her to take part.

So, who out there knows who our next guest may be?

Have a great day Neighbours. Safe travels.

To those of us who have loved ones who have passed on and won't be with us this year ...... *So close, not matter how far ......"

Peace, Love and Light xx ❤️🎅
