Thank you so much to all the lovely, lovely people who read and shared my last post, and to those who got in touch online or in person – I am really touched. Continue reading
So, we are in the middle of a heat wave. If you live in Melbourne, chances are you know about it, because everyone talks about it constantly, as though it’s some sort of groundbreaking news. Oh, yeah, and because we’ve been sweltering in 40+ degrees heat since Monday now. That’s over 110 degrees Fahrenheit for you imperial folk. Yuck. Continue reading
Well it’s finally the time of year when I can start baking gingerbread without people looking at me strangely! Feels good :). Continue reading
This is one of my all time favourite recipes, and it is actually one I created, which is rare! I thought it would be the perfect recipe to cap off Recipe Month. :) Continue reading
To round off recipe month, I have two more delicious recipes to share with you! The first is this creation, which I have fondly come to think of as the Malteser Mountain Cake.
Now, in my mind, there are two types of cake: the ones that you spend a long time making and baking, and the ones that you spend a long time decorating. I don’t believe in the third category, the ones that you spend a long time making, baking, and decorating. They shouldn’t exist. Continue reading
Considering that November seems to have become recipe month, today I bring you another recipe!
Despite living in Texas for four years, I really didn’t pick up a single shred of talent for Mexican cuisine (or even Tex-Mex). So when I discovered this AMAZING recipe for Mexican street corn – esquites – last week, I was pretty darn excited. It is delicious, and it tastes so authentic, I forgot I wasn’t Mexican myself for a moment. We had a bit of a Mexican fiesta for dinner, so we put a bit in our fajitas, and ate some on the side – it was gone in record time. Continue reading
Hello everyone, happy Monday! I realise that it is Monday, and not last Friday, when I should have done this post, so my apologies! Life kind of intervened in my week of blogging last week!
Today I bring you a new creation, Very Cherry Slice. It’s a super easy, no-bake slice that will impress all your friends and relatives! Promise! Plus, with its classic Arnott’s Marie Biscuits and Cadbury Cherry Ripes, it’s a bit of an Aussie classic! I was inspired by the recipe for Terri’s Cherry Ripe Slice over at Taste.com.

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today’s September Short Project is a yummy delight – Cake Balls! If you’re an Aussie like me, you may never have encountered these delicious treats, but Americans are probably familiar with them. I had cake balls for the first time when we went to stay with our lovely friends Bob and Linda in Texas – Linda had ordered a whole range of flavours and we LOVED them. I had a real craving last week, so I thought I would try them out myself. Continue reading
