Passionfruit cupcakes with vanilla buttercream

Cooking with seasonal ingredients is something I always try to do. It gives our dishes the best possible flavour because the produce is at its peak when it is in season. It also means that we can (generally) source items from our local area.

This was one of […]

Banana bread

I never thought I’d own a Thermomix, let alone actually be doing in-home demonstrations and loving being an Independent Consultant for the product.

Why? You might ask. Sometimes I tell my story about how I started in this business during my demos. Briefly, I owned every kitchen appliance known to […]

Lemon Tart – Thermomix

Some time ago I made a strawberry and lemon tart in my food processor. Crisp and buttery pastry, tangy smooth filling, it was the kind of dessert that both G & I love. Unfortunately it didn’t score too highly on the G scale (nor with me really) and the remainder […]

Strawberry & rhubarb crumble

I have always found it quite fascinating how our taste buds change over the years. And I have often wondered, is it because of age, because we experience different things or simply because we are more open to trying something new?

Cooking with good quality seasonal produce is something that every great chef will attest to being one of the things that makes for a wonderful dish. I love trying to find different ways of using things when they are in season. I also have a passion for baking cakes and […]

Cranberry and almond toasted muesli

As mentioned in previous posts, eating a healthy breakfast is important to both G & I. In winter we usually enjoy a bowl of porridge and in the warmer months we both like some kind of cereal. I’ve been making quite a bit of bircher recently but G wanted a change. Normally […]

Raspberry marshmallows

Valentine’s Day has never been something that I have celebrated. I prefer to show my special man that I love him whenever I feel like it throughout the year rather than on one particular day. I’m also very fortunate that G feels exactly the same. We both buy each […]

Strawberry cheesecake with strawberries in rose syrup

There are times that I can take one look at a photo of a dish and know that I want to cook it. That is exactly what happened when I saw this cake of the cover of the October 2010 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller. It took me a […]
