Have a lovely and safe Christmas all. See you some time in the new year!
I spotted a magical cake recently and for fun, really wanted to recreate my own; I then became sucked into a vortex of cuteness on Etsy and before I knew it, I’d purchased a few woodland animal figurines for Christmas decorations. You’ll probably be seeing them perched randomly on top of cakes and things down[read more…]
I have this thing about swing and Louis Armstrong does it like no other. Have a lovely break all, stay safe and happy. Christmas card images: via via via via via via
I love me some Lush so here are a few of my favourite things in the store currently; Some pretty Christmas presents for a special person maybe?
Well it’s just not Christmas without some sort of trifle so this year, I made a lemon flavoured trifle with my favourite berry, raspberries. You don’t have to make this only at Christmas either, it’s an easy yet pretty summertime dessert which you can make ahead and also, anything with layers of different things looks like you went to[read more…]
We in Australia can become a bit gloomy about our hot Christmases. Don’t get me wrong, Christmas is lovely and all that but we miss out on all that cosy, frosty stuff. And if I see one more ad with Santa surfing or wearing board shorts .. So I thought I’d pretend we’re having a snowy Christmas[read more…]
Jelly beans aren’t usually an addition to baked goods however I bought some Christmas jelly beans (red, green and white obv) and thought they’d look pretty studded into some white chocolate blondies for the season. You could, of course, add whichever candy you prefer if jelly beans aren’t your thing (they’re my lollies of choice usually ) but[read more…]
Earlier this week, I posted the first of 3 reviews for Tassal salmon. Today’s recipe uses Tassal’s lovely, rich, thinly sliced smoked salmon inspired by a breakfast trend I spotted recently, the F.A.T. (aka feta, avocado and tomato), the latest breakfast offering in cafes, which is so cool right now, it’s ridiculous. I kid. It’s a really delicious breakfast and[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…]
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…]
This isn’t really a recipe but since we seem to be hurtling towards Christmas at a rather scary rate (7 and a half weeks what?!), I thought I’d put together a little festive, girly sweetness to add to your holiday baking. It’s really just as much white, granulated sugar as you need in an airtight,[read more…]
