Condensed Milk and Cinnamon Cookies

December 20, 2019

Today I’ll be sharing the last recipe in MAIZENA’s ‘Bake Your Festive Gift’ series and it’s also a goodie! If you’re a fan of condensed milk and a cookie that is soft, slightly chewy and sweet then this is the one for you!

These Condensed Milk and Cinnamon Cookies are pretty straightforward to make, but what I thought I’d do for this post is draw little lines across the middle of them and add some shiny ball sprinkles to make them look like strings of fairy lights.

Meringue Wreaths

December 18, 2019

I’m one of those people that put their Christmas tree up mid-November, that’s how into the festive season I am. So when I came across the idea of Meringue Wreaths for a Christmas tree or Christmas table, I was all in!

What could be better than decorations that look good enough to eat and then can in fact be eaten? Nothing, that’s what 🙂

Mushroom chicken with brown basmati rice, red quinoa and roasted chickpeas

May 6, 2019


Ooooh, do I have a nice dish for you to whip up tonight or sometime in the near future. Mushroom chicken with brown basmati rice, red quinoa and roasted chickpeas is fast, full of flavour and will hit your savoury spot right between the eyes.

This is the final recipe that I have put together for my latest Maizena series and it’s one that I’m sure you’re going to revisit because it’s super good for a casual night in as well as when you’re having people over for supper.

You won’t need a lot to time to put this together, which is always a winning recipe for me. And you can make it even quicker if you get yourself one of those pre-made rice packs, which is what I did. They come in a variety of combinations, but I found that the brown basmati rice with red quinoa works really nicely, adding lots of texture and a nice earthy flavour to the dish.

Profiteroles filled with creme patisserie topped with chocolate

April 28, 2019


I have always wanted to try to make Profiteroles but have always thought that they’re a bit tricky to pull off, they look so light and delicate and I’ve never made choux pastry before so I’ve avoided them until now that is.

I decided to challenge myself and make a batch for my Maizena Series because 1. Profiteroles filled with creme patissiere topped with chocolate sauce sound amazing and 2. What could be better than homemade vanilla custard inside light choux pastry topped with dark warm chocolate sauce?

The thing is with these bite-sized pastries of awesome is that every element needs to be just right. The pastry needs to be light and airy and the custard thick, sweet and smooth and this recipe guarantees you both and an end result that is really delicious and perfect for dessert, tea parties and moments when you feel like sitting by yourself in your living room eating cake!

Melting Moments Cookies

April 16, 2019


Have you ever eaten a biscuit that literally melts in your mouth? I’m talking the type of biscuit that will have you holding one in each hand while you’re still chewing your first helping. People have been making Melting Moments Cookies for years and years and once you make them, you’ll understand why.

This is the second recipe I’ll be sharing from my Maizena series and it’s a real goodie because of the cornstarch used in it, it’s actually the key ingredient that makes these biscuits so crumbly, light and super delicious.

Traditionally, people cover the tops with a generous dusting of icing sugar, but I decided to dip them in melted dark chocolate just to make them extra special and extra special is exactly how they turned out. These morish treats took next to no time to make and equally less time to polish off, so if you’re in the market for a delicious treat then scroll down and get baking.
