    two pieces of cake

    I had such a fabulous weekend. Friday night I was at a friend’s house (Hi Amy!) and she mentioned that she was going to some farmers markets on Sunday. I was super excited, I have been longing for Sunday farmers markets for ages, but the only farmers markets I knew of nearby were on...

    served from above

    A few months ago we had a potluck curry lunch. We were going to a friend’s house, and as we arrived there was this delicious aroma of curry wafting throughout the house. Yum. I love curry. It’s one of my favourite foods. I mean I may not be able to rival my Dad when...

    corner-tray-of-cupcakes

    I’ve never understood the cupcake trend. I mean, I love some of the beautiful (and edible) artwork that can be made on a cupcake (you should have seen some of the beauties at our work morning tea the other day… a polar bear on a cupcake? Just awesome). I love the convenience of single servings....

    wafers with ice cream

    We just got our ice cream maker on the weekend. Excitement levels in our house are through the roof! Gareth has been acting like a little kid in a candy shop ever since (which I suppose is pretty close to the truth), so it’s definitely been a good investment. Plus, I hadn’t had ice cream in...

    taco close up

    Tacos. The word creates memories of delicious-ness. Of a crunchy shell, hot spicy beans, ooey-gooey melted cheese, a fresh finish with lettuce… all topped with one of my favourite foods—sour cream. Yum! Of course, I also have memories of cutting my mouth up with the taco shell trying to eat it quickly, desperate not...

    Muesli Honey

    I have always loved toasted muesli. It was always so much more satisfying then raw oats and so much more convenient then porridge. But there was always one thing that ruined it for me. Sultanas. Bleh. Who needs them? I mean who’s idea was it anyway to ruin such a perfect breakfast with something...

    maple roasted bananas served

    I read a recipe for baked banana ice cream on The Nourishing Gourmet (from The Ice Dream Cookbook by Rachel Albert-Matesz). It looked amazing! But first, our ice cream maker hasn’t arrived yet, and second, it’s the middle of winter here. Regardless, I obsessed about baked bananas for the entire afternoon. It started out as...

    cooked crumble

    My parents have a property near some apple orchids, so last time dad went there he picked up a whole lot of apples and came around with a huge bag just for me and the man! Now, I quite like apples, but I’m not going to go through an entire shopping bag full unless...
