I have mentioned before on this blog how I have epically failed a couple of times when attempting to bake a banana bread. I don’t know why but I have failed more than I have succeed when it comes to this specific fruit flavoured extravagancer, which really irritates me because I love banana bread.
The other night our friends Hannah and Peet came for supper, they cooked and we made dessert. So I looked through some of my cookbooks and decided on a Mille-feuille with White Chocolate Custard and Berries recipe out of Alida Ryder’s book.
I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes for things that I love shoving into my face and pancakes/crepes is one of them. Shane’s family came over for a quick brunch and a visit the other day and I thought I would try make a quick batch of pancakes. I found a really short and easy recipe online that I used and liked, so here it is in case any of you feel like smashing a stack of pancakes this morning.
A week ago I tried to make Boston Cream Cupcakes for the very first time. Now for those of you who don’t know what a Boston Cream Cupcake is, let me explain. They are vanilla sponge cupcakes filled with homemade vanilla custard, which are then smothered in rich chocolate icing. Sound good? You’re nodding yes right now, aren’t you?
It’s nearly Christmas time, which it means that it’s nearly time for a day full of family, food and puddddiing. Shane’s parents are coming to our house for lunch and I really want to make things that I haven’t made before, so I dove down a rabbit hole on Pinterest last night to get some dessert inspiration. I will land making one of these sticky beasts, just not sure which one yet. All links are under the pictures below and when I do land up making one, I’ll do a post on it too. Happy dessert making.
Yesterday a bunch of our friends who hadn’t yet met Miss Nina James came to the house to see her. It was so nice hanging out with everyone and Nina even managed to stay awake for about 40% of the visit, she just sort of quietly stared at each person who held her, she was probably wondering how the hell so many giant faces could fit in one room at the same time.
