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. […]

Banana Caramel Pancakes

My nickname for these pancakes is “Faileo Pancakes”. Why? Because I started off with a paleo pancake recipe and then covered it in caramel. Just because. And it’s DELICIOUS. 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 […]

Lonely Girl Pancakes – A Single Serve Pancake Recipe

single-serve-pancakes2-recipe

I had an intense pancake craving the other weekend, but had no one to enjoy them with and didn’t want stacks of leftovers. So I thought I’d improvise a single serve pancake recipe partially out of curiosity, and partially because I have no self control and would end up eating the remainders cold, straight out […]

2013 seems to have flown past so quickly that it’s now the 9th of January 2014 and I still haven’t posted my wrap-up post! 2013 was a busy, exciting and sometimes stressful year. I travelled a lot – both domestically and internationally, the blog has been steadily attracting more attention and I feel my photography […]

Coconut and Salted Caramel Ice Cream

I’ve always wanted to try and make my own ice cream, and have had limited success with no-churn ice creams and sorbets. But the texture was always not quite right, and I knew I needed some machinery to get the job done. When Kitchenware Superstore approached me and offered me something from their range, an […]
