Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake in a Glass

I have a confession to make: I absolutely adore peppermint chocolate and anything minty really. For some reason I do not understand, friends often look at me funny when I’m at messina or any gelateria and I opt for choc-mint gelato. “But there are so many better flavours! Choc-mint is boring! YOU’RE boring!” Fine, I’m…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Tomorrow is hump day so in celebration of pre-hump day (it’s my blog, I can do what I want!) I’ve made something utterly delicious. Though PB and choccies are utterly delicious on their own, together, they make the most heavenly combination. Think Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. And how do you create an incredible peanut butter and…

Easy Chocolate Tart/Slice (no bake)

 Somehow I blinked my eyes and it’s already New Year again! Don’t be alarmed, it’s not December yet (although how fast has this year flown?!), I’m talking about the Jewish New Year.  This time last year I was busy in the kitchen making the best honey cake ever however this year we’re getting our honey cake…

Governor’s Table @ Museum of Sydney

Inspired by the rich history of Sydney, The Governor’s Table at the Museum of Sydney is well-worth the visit, even for Sydney locals. The small yet intimate restaurant (soon to be expanding) perfectly captures the feel of early Australia, especially with the use of basic décor such as stone, timber and steel to mirror what…

Sunday Sweets: Tim Tam Rocky Road

I am generally not a lazy person but at the last minute when someone asks you to whip up something for dessert and you just don’t have the time to make something utterly fabulous like you normally would, it’s OK to cheat and make something easy. The past week I’d been having serious cravings for…

Coconut Milk Fudge

Oh hey there foodies, didn’t see you there, long time no speak! Yes, I know, it seems like most of my posts these days begin with a similar sentence, but it’s not my fault. Because LIFE. Life is busy. But finally in the lead up to Christmas it seems to be winding down. Somehow. I’ve…

Apple and Maple Pie

This positively scrumptious recipe is brought to you by the fabulous Not Quite Nigella. She really is fabulous. You must check her website out if you haven’t already. Although I’m sure you have. Her original recipe was for Apple and Maple Tarts … 10 perfectly sized little tarts. However, I am quite known to have a short temper.…
