So sad and scary to think of Belgium this Easter. I wish for a happy and safe long weekend for all. Gingerbread house from Tasmanian Gingerbread
Mmmm health food! Haha but anyway, I put these super easy, beautiful trifles together for the Christmas/holiday season. I mean I wouldn’t do this sort of thing outside of celebration times but for a fun dessert, they look so whimsical and cute and well, just a little OTT. As with the lemon cake I posted the other day,[read more…]
Have a brilliant weekend all (we’ll be watching heaps of spooky movies tonight I’m sure and maybe a cocktail or two).
Have a beautiful and safe long weekend all and happy Easter!
This luscious, fluffy, super easy chocolate mousse pie with a sinful hint of Baileys (and a truckload of thick cream!) is just the thing for today. I used the original Baileys however if you can get your hands on some Baileys Chocolat Luxe, that would be brilliant! Happy St Paddy’s Day all 🙂
Happy Halloween all (if you celebrate it that is). Here are some spooky stories if you’re game! Haunted places and ghost stories of Brisbane; and Village of the Dead: The Anjikuni Mystery
Tim Tams. Are they available in lots of other countries other than Australia? You’re missing out if they’re not! Tim Tams have gotten me through many a break-up and Swotvac week in my teens and 20s and I’ll always be fond of them. There are all sorts of fancy flavours these days but my favourite is the[read more…]
I had grand ideas of making a chocolate Guinness cake for St Patrick’s Day but ran out of time. Instead, I thought I’d go off the beaten track and offer this green smoothie I made recently which is such a lovely green colour, it seemed serendipitous, despite being devoid of butter, cream, potatoes or Guinness I’ve[read more…]
The reason for today’s post is exciting! Shionagh from Biome contacted me recently to ask if I might be interested in participating in their Mother’s Day promotion and to offer Australian readers a chance to win a gift basket for Mother’s Day, Sunday 12th May. I’m so happy to promote Biome as they’re one of[read more…]
I love Easter. Cool autumn nights so full of luxurious chocolate, toasted, cosy hot cross buns with butter, drinks and fun, yet it doesn’t have the high expectations Christmas has. Have a wonderful and safe long weekend all ~ I hope you get to spend it with fun and lovely people, delicious food and lots of sunshine, or at[read more…]
It’s a bit sacrilegious I know, changing hot cross buns but … I always buy the fruit spice ones and they’re lovely, in fact I usually stock up around this time of year so I can have a few stored in the freezer. However, I wanted to bake some buns myself so thought I’d throw in a[read more…]
To celebrate this year’s St Paddy’s Day, I thought I’d make a hearty beef stew with Guinness. It doesn’t get more Irish than that hey?! I’ve never made one with a soda bread crust before (although I’ve made soda bread and am mad for it) and thought it looked really interesting. It was super easy[read more…]
Recently I was contacted by Natalie from Keep Left on behalf of Tassal, who very kindly asked if I would review some of their beautiful Tasmanian salmon products. Naturally I was super pleased to do this, as I love salmon and Tassal is a brand I buy regularly. Atlantic salmon is an extremely healthy variety of fish (all[read more…]
I was thrilled to be contacted by Kat from Keep Left PR to do a review for Bakers Delight, one of my favourite bakeries. Anyone who knows me is aware of my obsession for bakeries, and I usually find it difficult to walk past a Bakers Delight without stopping and staring like a little kid[read more…]
To celebrate St Paddy’s Day I whipped up a cool little breakfast – Irish potato cakes with an egg on top. I love these comforting little patties which are crisp on the outside and sort of a cross between potato cakes and hash browns. They’re at their absolute best served with a full Irish breakfast or, as[read more…]
Champagne cocktails are so 60s and glamorous and I love them so I made some girly drinks for Christmas which were pretty and tasted lovely. A bit too much actually, they’re really quite intoxicating so you’ve been warned. Champagne is kind of naughty like that – all bubbly and innocent then bam! I thought I’d go sparkly pink[read more…]
