    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...

    My dear oreo. Where have you been all my life? I understand that we have had our issues. Growing up so far separated from your magical chocolaty crunch was always destined to make our love difficult. But, please, do not hold my childhood against me. You have ventured across the ocean to the shores...

    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...

    Roasted peach, zucchini and parmesan salad

    served-peach-salad - my kitchen crowd

    You know you have a winning recipe when you would rather eat more salad then homemade icecream with buckwheat wafer baskets . Even more exciting, is that my sister’s housemate (Hi Clare!) just gave us a whole heap of home grown necterines and plums (Thanks HEAPS Clare!) from her parents house (Thanks parents!). Those...

    Fresh strawberry and banana tart

    from the side

    I seriously think I must have the most amazing in-laws ever. I always love going to visit them with the rest of the family, relax and spend some good quality time with everyone. But something that appeals to my food-loving brain even more, is that Gareth’s mum always cooks such delicious, healthy food whenever we go...

    Banana smoothie

    smoothie

    I don’t understand milkshakes. Why?! Why have a milkshake if you could have a thickshake? I mean, what’s the point?! Someone, please explain it to me. Thickshakes I understand. They’re like icecream in drinkable form. Smoothies. I kind of get those too. They’re like frozen yoghurt in drinkable form. But milkshakes. Really? It’s like flavoured...

    coconut macaroons from above egg free sugar free nut free dairy free

    We were in Melbourne last year and Gareth ate his first ever macaroon at a cafe we went to that specialised in desserts. He was hooked! Can you tell he is a sweet tooth much? We tried a few different flavours and loved them all. If only we’d known what we were missing out on!...

    Best ever vegetarian lasagne

    by  • November 14, 2012 • Mains • 4 Comments

    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...

    Rich chocolate mousse cake

    by  • November 7, 2012 • Dessert • 19 Comments

    served with strawberries

    I clearly have an obsession with chocolate. Gourmet chocolate, chocolate body butter, chocolate cupcakes… and the darker my chocolate, the better! One of my all time favourite desserts though is chocolate mousse. Oh chocolate mousse how I love thee! Light, but rich. Fluffy, but creamy. Airy, but satisfying. So what’s better than chocolate mousse?...
