I do try to listen to readers here. For those of you who like sorbet you can thank Sam Han for their more frequent appearance (or perhaps, that they appear at all) here, and anyone who forms a love for Afghans at the result of this post can thank Mika for her request in a […]Read more "Afghan Biscuits – Cookies by Request"
There’s something about having good cake. It puts a smile on your face, and a spring in your step. You walk around with a certain air about you. What’s wonderful is when you see someone else walking around with that same air about them. Catching each other’s eye, you smile and nod, that small gesture […]Read more "SEG Way Browned Butter Earl Grey Tea Pound Cake with Sweet Yellow Peaches and Vanilla Drizzle (and a Partridge in a Pear Tree)"
I’ve had a bit of a hankering recently. What’s been missing from my stomach are the custard buns from Yum Char. You know the ones with the crunchy sweet topping that will often shatter all over the plate if you put a tooth wrong? There are usually two options open under such circumstances.

When the recipes did start, it epitomised the treasure trove that blogs are for […]Read more "Le Pirate’s Zucchinea and Broccolea Green Moat (Or Garden Soup if You Prefer)"
These are my lifeline, 50:50 and call a friend when it comes to easy who wants to be an entertainer (along with an Asian Button Mushroom recipe from the same cookbook, Ripe Recipes, which you should buy if you can find). This first lot were a little on the large side if you’d like them to work as […]Read more "Tip of the Field Mushroom Cap"
I was watching an episode of Australian MasterChef once, where the food critic judge was doing one of those “Master Class” tutorials for the finalists. One ‘recipe’ was frozen bananas put through a blender then scooped onto a plate. Good idea, but not really what I’d call masterful. Anyway, a scroll through the WordPress Reader […]Read more "Smooth Chocolate Banana Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream – No Chunky For This Monkey"
