Today I’m going to be sharing one of mine & Shane’s favourite dishes to make together in the kitchen. It’s a simple dish, even though it may look slightly complicated, it’s also super fun to make.Continue Reading…
If you visited my blog a couple of days ago you would have seen that I’m working together with Kiri Cream Cheese to bring you a couple of delicious recipes! I started by making creamy and decadent Frozen Strawberry Cream and today I’m going to share my recipe for Kiri Prawn Rangoons.
Yes, I know I started with a dessert, but in my world, I think all meals should start with dessert followed by the main! If I ever open a restaurant again that’s how the menu is going to work 🙂Continue Reading…
I must be honest and say that I have actually never ever made toffees before I made these delicious little squares with my friend Nicole. I’ve always thought that the process would be quite difficult because you would need a candy thermometer or the mixture would be really tempramental and easy to burn, but I was wrong which meant that just over an hour later I was chomping down on some soft salty ginger toffees that hit you right in the sweet spot in the best possible way.
There is a fair amount of standing in front on the stove stirring, about 25 minutes worth but it’s totally worth it, plus if you have a baking partner in crime you can tag each other out halfway through while the other one makes a couple of Insta–Stories hehe.
The other day I tried my hand at an Italian Cream Cake. For those of you who have no idea what an Italian Cream Cake is, not to worry I’ll explain…it’s a white cake that originates from the South that is flavoured with coconut and pecan nuts and covered in cream cheese icing. I know what you’re going to say, where does the Italian and cream fit into it? Well the cream is in the batter and as for the Italian, I’m as confused as you are on that one…
Before I stumbled across this recipe, I had also never heard of or tasted an Italian Cream Cake, but now I’m so glad that I’m no longer a stranger to this fluffy coconut-ty cake of loveliness.
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.
Here are some of the flipping delicious looking things that I have pinned lately and drooled over. I’m so happy to have my sweet teeth back, whilst I was pregnant I craved salty things more that sweet, which is really not like me, but I’m happy to say that that has all changed. I could take any of these cakes out right now with my bare hands and face, no fork needed.
