Quick Waffels

Just about every time I visit my Mum we have either pancakes with blue berries or waffles with blue berries and ice cream. With Mother’s Day just around the corner why not treat your Mum to some home made waffles? This recipe is an oldie but a goodie and anyone with a waffle maker can…

Chia Pudding & Cherry Berry Bliss Smoothie Bowl

I love fresh fruit for breakfast, but sometimes depending on the time of year you just can’t get the good stuff like Cherries, Raspberries, Mangoes etc. So where the season fails me, the freezer section at the grocery store does not! I love buying frozen fruit, especially living in North Queensland where it’s always a…

ANZAC Biscuits with a Twist

Here in Australia it is the ANZAC day long weekend, and for us Aussies that means 3 things. First and foremost it’s an opportunity to honour our fallen soldiers and those still serving to protect our country. Secondly it’s a public holiday which is never a bad thing, and lastly it’s the perfect time of…

Salted Caramel Banoffee Tart

An age old classic, gooey caramel, sweet fresh banana, whipped cream and the crunch of a biscuit shell.  Banoffee is hard to beat normally, add a sneaky sprinkle of salt flakes and it goes from yummy, to amazing!

Pomelo Cupcakes

The nice thing about citrus fruits is that even when they have gone a bit soft and you wouldn’t eat them fresh out of their skin, they are still perfect for baking! A few weekends ago one of my best friends gave me a few delicious home grown pomelos. I’d never had them before so…

Passionfruit Curd

Here’s a yummy sweet and tart Passionfruit curd recipe to get those taste buds tingling!

Triple Chocolate Chip Muffins

Who doesn’t like chocolate? If you find someone that doesn’t, well then there is something seriously wrong with them! These chocolate muffins are a serious indulgence. Chocolate base with two types of chocolate chips (thee if you don’t have a fussy husband who won’t let you use milk chocolate) brings all the yummy to these…

New York Baked Cheesecake

My favourite type of cake is a baked cheesecake. I can remember when I was little whenever I was taking into town we would always stop off at our favourite German coffee shop and without fail I would get one of two things. A jam berliner or a slice of baked cheesecake. Each bite of…

Chocolate Tart

I recently spent the Easter weekend with my Mum in Cairns. I don’t get to see her as often as I would like, so this year I promised myself and her that I would make an effort to spend more time with her despite the 400 km distance between us. So like the old days…

Easy Meringue

This is the easiest Meringue recipe you will ever find. I decided to make a meringue after my last post Orange Poppy Seed Cake with Passionfruit Curd and Glaze. The curd required 5 egg yolks and I was left with all the egg whites. I don’t like waste, and I rather like meringue so it…

Orange Poppy Seed Cake with Passionfruit Curd & Glaze

This weekend I went to visit my friend today who until recently has been in hospital recovering from quite a large surgery. I didn’t want to go empty handed so I decided to make cake! Because well, you know, these situations¬†need cake… So to the internet I went, searching for something to make out of…

Easy Blueberry Muffins

Growing up blueberries were a constant staple in our household. I swear my mum had a slight obsession with them! Sundays nearly always consisted of super thin pancakes rolled with blue berries in the middle and dusted with icing sugar, so yummy! I love these muffins because the flavours remind me so much of those…
