Chocolate chunk cookies to make you feel good

A few weeks ago now, I was approached by the folks at Cadbury who wanted to gauge my interest in working with them for the Fair@Square Fair Trade Festival. Allow me to hop on a soap box for a minute and say that I’m a big fan of being ethically aware of the choices that […]

Luscious Lemon Slices

Move over, Nigella, I’ve already declared my new baking goddess to be our own Aussie Belinda Jeffery, and in trying yet another recipe from this book, she hasn’t let me down! I’ve explained before that my sister is a lemon/citrus freak, and absolutely adores my lemon tart. While I enjoy making it for her, the […]

How sweet are these Green Tea Sweets?

Apologies for the lack of updates – for those of you who haven’t figured it out yet, I started a new job almost a month ago and the crazy hours (up at 5am, out by 6am, back by 5-7pm) have got me absolutely wiped. Combine that with almost as much cooking (making lunch for my […]

Perfect Pistachio Cookies

Have you ever tasted a macadamia before? I’m not talking about idly popping one or two into your mouth, I’m talking about […]

Bittersweet Chocolate-Dipped Orange & Coconut Macaroons

You know how sometimes you see a photo of something that just looks so delicious that you want to make it straight away? Well, that was the case with these delectable little morsels – it was just before my Christmas cookie baking extravaganza that I spotted this post by Susan at Food Blogga, which made […]

Moments to melt for

Apologies for the lack of updates! I had a slew of posts that I had planned for this week, but a rather depressing incident with my hair has lead to a complete and utter lack of motivation on all fronts. Quick recap – I discovered that my regular hairdresser has up and moved to a […]
