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 thousand degrees hot, using frozen fruit is the best way to start the day on a cool note.

One of my favourite ways to prepare said fruit for breakfast is as a smoothie. They are quick to make and eat (which is great when you have to be at work early in the morning) and best of all they are filling. When I have more time I like to make a bit more of an effort and create smoothie bowls. This is one of my latest creations. Let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂

Prep time – 5 mins + over night for the Chia pudding, Serves 1.

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 year to make ANZAC biscuits.

To me these biccies have to be soft and chewy, golden brown and super sweet, and that’s just how this recipe turns out.

To add a little bit of a twist, and to appease the chocolate fanatics out there half of this recipe was turned into chocolate chip ANZAC biccies 🙂

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 this cheesecake took me right back to those cherished childhood memories.

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 only made sense!

This meringue can me made into small rounds, or as large bases for toppings of cream and fruit.

With only two ingredients, why not give it a go 🙂

Prep time 5mins, Cooking time 3hours, Serves 8

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 the ingredients I already had in the pantry. The star of the show had to be the passionfruit as I had a big tin just sitting there waiting to be eaten. I found a few recipes that I thought looked easy enough and would combine well to make something pretty special, so here it is, my Orange Poppy Seed Cake with Passionfruit Curd and Glaze.

Prep time – 20mins, Cooking time – 30mins, Cooling time – 2hrs, Serves 12
