    Growing up, we had to start making our own school lunches in about year 3. I guess it’s because I didn’t always eat what was packed for me (jam sandwiches? Yech) and my parent’s figured maybe I’d be more inclined to eat what I packed myself. I don’t really know why, but regardless that’s...

    Chewy chocolate hazelnut cookies

    Ok, so hands up who loves the Cookie Monster? Everyone? I thought so. And who wouldn’t! A monster who pretty well inhales cookies is a monster I can easily relate to. Plus with the token song he’s pretty well a walking musical about cookies! But then we were told cookies were a sometimes food....

    I’ve recently been faced with a dilemma. We visited family over Easter and after spending much time gushing over my love of all things chocolate with my cousin—like mousse cake, cookies and cupcakes—my aunt declared that I was addicted to it. Me? Addicted to chocolate? Well maybe. I mean I really, really love the...

    Gareth had a housemate who he always went mountain biking with (hi Jeff!). His housemate, after completing his study, moved back to his home town (a few hours drive away). So being the good friend that he is, Gareth would go and visit. Of course they inevitably end up mountain biking with a group...

    Best ever vegetarian lasagne

    cooked served

    I must confess that I’ve been obsessing about lasagne since Easter. That’s right – for months! Now some of you may know me well and not be particularly surprised by that. I tend to get quite taken by an idea and and obsess about it until I get it out of my system, but...

    Gourmet chocolate

    chocolate stacked from above

    Chocolate. Chocolate is possibly the reason I started this blog. It’s certainly a big factor in why I went sugar free. Or I should say, a big factor in my ability to go sugar free. You see, I’m a chocolatier. Wow. It feels good to say that. I bet it would mean instant friends at...

    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....

    Toasted muesli your way

    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...

    Coconut macaroon apple crumble

    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...
