Raspberry and Coconut Cupcakes

I was asked to create some cupcakes for a friend’s 30th that “weren’t too sweet”, and after ignoring her boring request of vanilla (sorry) I knew something featuring berries was the way to go. It also helped that the colour theme for her birthday was pink, so I could colour the icing naturally. Raspberry and [...]

Choc Raspberry Vegan Mousse

Those of you who are familiar with my baking know I am pretty heavy handed with the butter, sugar, eggs and flour. But I LOVE getting creative in the kitchen, and have been tweaking and creating new recipes lately to make them gluten or dairy free, or even vegan, for friends and family with intolerances [...]

Hot Cross Bun Cupcakes

I LOVE Hot Cross Buns, it’s definitely one of the highlights of Easter for me. And I’m not one of those Hot Cross Bun purists either – choc chip, caramel, dried fruit, it’s all good to me! I was in Woolworths recently and noticed they had produced a Sticky Date & Caramel Hot Cross Bun. [...]

Plus it’s super easy and gluten free! Forget the usual flour, milk and sugar – the base recipe uses just 3 ingredients – bananas, eggs and baking [...]

Alpha Restaurant

I love Greek food but must admit it’s a cuisine I rarely eat. So when Alpha opened up in the CBD I rallied a posse of foodie ladies to try it out, and then bought my family back for a birthday several weeks later. When Wasamedia contacted me to try out Alpha’s newly launched Saturday lunch [...]
