Chocolate Coconut Slice 

I love it when a fellow blogger shares a recipe that sends me down memory lane. Glenda at Passion Fruit Garden shared this recipe for Chocolate Slice and it instantly had me thinking of my nan and book marking the post to see if I could recreate some of the magic. The original version is…

Last Minute Chocolate Goodies For Christmas

Some times I get that impulse to bake last minute for Christmas, and the last thing I want to do in our summer heat is turning on the oven, or sweating my way through a day in the kitchen. I thought I would collate and share some of my recipes that have gotten a work…

Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch

  So much of my food experimentation these days is spent trying to get my little man to try new things and keep food in his mouth.  He has a strange love of baby tomatoes that involves sucking the guts out of them and then spitting out the skins.  I’m hoping one day he’ll take…

Lady’s Kisses (Baci di Dama)

Who can resist a little morsel of sweetness with their afternoon coffee?  When its tinged with the flavour of my European travels then I’m even more of a sucker.  This biscuit is reminiscent of shortbread, but not quite so crumbly.  The addition of lemon zest and vanilla essence to the blend of almond and flour…

Chocolate Chunk Biscuits

I’ve been casually attempting to find a good chewy chocolate chip biscuit recipe for the few years now.  Mr G loves a chewy biscuit filled with good sized bites of chocolate and so many of my recipes turn out with more crunch than is really desired.  Flicking through my The New Classics Cookbook by Donna…

6 Foodie Techniques I Want To Master in 2014

I’m not a timid cook.  Whilst I may have had a stubborn teenage moment, I grew up baking and being in Mum’s kitchen, and as the years have gone on I’ve gone from being a basic follow a recipe only kind of cook to a more confident ready to create my own versions of recipes…

Sandra’s Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

I have many memories of cakes baked over the years for birthdays in our family.  If you’ve been following this blog for a while you will have read my story about the Strawberry and Cream Sponge and seen the efforts that went into making the “Monkey Cake“.   I can’t think of a time when…

In My December Kitchen

It doesn’t matter how many years I’ve gone through Christmas and New Year it always seems like the chaos starts about the middle of November and it’s not until the first week of January that I start to feel like I can draw a breath and relax. Even in all the happenings I can still…

Hedgehog Divine

This super delicious recipe was inspired by a recipe I recently made from wholefoods simply’s website.   The coconut rough was incredible and after some contemplating I thought I’d try my hand at mixing up my own combo to see what the outcome would be. Warning, don’t read any further if you don’t want to spend…

Triple Chocolate Cupcakes

It seems my birthday presents had a very distinct theme this year…. not that I’m complaining in the slightest.  Food, and more specifically chocolate seemed to be the order of the day.   A very delightful birthday treat indeed! To celebrate it was only logical that I bake a chocolate cake, or in this case, cakes…
