Strawberry and Coconut Bread

Okay, okay, it’s really more like cake…… but I’m calling it bread because of the texture, its appearance and the fact that it definitely doesn’t need dressing up like a cake. I’ve been kind of obsessed by a coconut and banana bread that I discovered on WordPress not very long after I started blogging.  It’s…

Banana and Choc Chip Muffins

I always think muffins should be a really quick easy treat to make.  For some reason though,  I don’t have the muffin magic to get mine the way I picture them in my head.   I love the flavour combinations I create, but the texture has always been a bit wet and not quite as…

Roast Carrot and Garlic Dip

  We have rather a penchant for enjoying a glass of vino and a snack at the end of the day before our proper evening meal.  Quite frequently this translates into dips and crackers.  Whilst I love the simplicity and convenience of the store bought versions, the cost adds up, and I do get a…

making icypoles….

Its summer here in OZ, and that means warm weather (in theory anyway), and in Brisbane, humidity too…. So far our summer has been more like winter with all the rain thats been falling, but there has definately been days of wet and warm too. So icypoles are the perfect foil for the heat, particularly…
