HOT: Healthy Lemon Slice

The lemon tree in our backyard has started bearing loads of fruit so I’m racking my brains for tasty ways to use up the harvest. I decided to try baking a lemon slice with Lady AB as I knew it was a simple recipe and I thought it’d be something she’d enjoy eating. However, I […]

HOT: Olive Oil Chocolate Mousse by George Calombaris

Happy Bastille Day! Today is also Baby 2.0’s six-month birthday, so to celebrate Lady AB and I have made a suitably French birthday treat that the whole family could share. After dismissing more spectacular ideas like a croquembouche or macarons, I fell upon the idea of chocolate mousse because, well, it’s something that a baby […]

HOT: Lemon Cupcakes recipe by Hummingbird Bakery

Lady AB’s new favourite book is the  The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook! She flicks through it going ‘white cake, pink cake, purple cake, yellow cake, biscuit, biscuit, biscuit…’ so this week I decided to use more of our abundant lemon harvest to make The Hummingbird Bakery’s Lemon Cupcakes. I find the recipes in the The Hummingbird […]

HOT: Vanilla Poached Quince recipe

Quinces are only a recent discovery for me and they’ve quickly become part of my cold-weather slow-cooking repertoire. I first picked them up at our local farmer’s market and the grower told me that they were like a mix between an apple and pear. That is exactly how I’d describe them! While they take some […]

HOT: Pear and Muesli Muffins by Carman’s Kitchen

I recently attended an event where I was given a couple of boxes of muesli by Aussie company and mumpreneur success story Carman’s Kitchen so for my Sunday baking sessions with Lady AB this week  we made some muesli muffins. On the Carman’s Kitchen website there are a few recipes using Carman’s products and the Pear and Muesli […]

HOT: The Best Red Velvet Cupcakes recipe by Hummingbird Bakery

For Uncle Ian’s birthday this week Lady AB and I made red velvet cupcakes from The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. The London bakery makes some of the best cupcakes I’ve ever had so naturally I had to buy their cookbook to replicate the deliciousness at home.  Here’s my take on American style, super sweet Red Velvet Cupcakes […]

HOT: The best Anzac Biscuits recipe by Donna Hay

I think that Lady AB is too young to appreciate the significance of Anzac Day yet, so we used today’s public holiday as an opportunity to bake Anzac biscuits instead. They are great biscuits to make any time of year actually as they are super quick, cheap and use store cupboard ingredients. The process of […]

HOT: Vanilla Snap Biscuits by Donna Hay Modern Classics 2

These vanilla snap biscuits from Donna Hay’s Modern Classics 2 cookbook are a favourite in our house. The recipe is very quick and easy to prepare with store cupboard ingredients and the dough keeps in the fridge for a couple of days wrapped in glad wrap (and probably freezes ok too given the combination of […]

HOT: Frozen Banana icecream

It’s going to be 34 degrees out today and I’m 7 months pregnant. Needless to say, I am feeling HOT. My go-to frozen treat is frozen banana ‘ice-cream’. It’s not actually ice-cream because there’s no dairy, sugar, churning etc involved. If you’ve never had frozen banana ice-cream you will LOVE this. Basically what I do […]

HOT: Best Ever Pancakes Recipe

I love pancakes. In fact, I’d be happy to eat pancakes every day for breakfast if I had the time to make them. As a compromise I’ve developed a weekend ritual of pancake making. This is the best pancake recipe I’ve ever used and is by Jamie Oliver. It uses store cupboard ingredients, there’s no […]
