Theme: Chocolate Cookbook: The Crabapple Bakery Cupcake Cookbook by Jennifer Graham Ah, chocolate! It always surprises me to find females who don’t like chocolate since I absolutely love it! It would have to be my number 1 dessert ingredient. 99% of the time I will choose a chocolate dessert over a fruit based one. I […]


Theme: Red Cookbook: The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook by Tarek Malouf Things might be quiet around here as I’m currently on holiday in the US. I had grand plans to complete and post the Cookbook Challenge weeks I would be missing before I left and while I managed to finish the cooking, I didn’t finish the […]


Theme: Citrus Cookbook: The Australian Women’s Weekly Bake Week 1 of the Cookbook Challenge is almost at an end and hopefully all participants got their recipes completed! It is still not too late for new people to join. You can find more details here. The theme for Week 1 was citrus. I think it actually […]


Thanks to Lindsay from POM I got delivery of a box of POM Wonderful juice which is 100% authentic pomegranate juice made from the Wonderful variety of pomegranates. I had seen these curvy bottles at Woolworths in the fruit and vegetables section, but never thought to try a bottle because to be honest, it is […]

I’m starting to think that me & Nigella Lawson don’t get along. Ok, maybe not Nigella herself, but I’m talking about her recipes. I bought two of her cookbooks when I started this blog, and if I am to be honest, it was because of her popularity. The first recipe I tried was her pistachio […]

Forced with a choice, I would choose chocolate over caramel but as I have never made caramel anything before, I chose to make caramel cupcakes to bring over to the previously mentioned poker night. This recipe comes from Australian Women’s Weekly Bake, which is turning out to be my most utilised cookbook! The original recipe […]

Every time I see the Lindt 100g blocks on special for less than $2 a block, I always go and buy a few of the 70% ones. They are starting to pile up now because I haven’t made anything chocolatey for a while so I went hunting for a chocolate cake recipe. Most of the […]


We have our own lemon tree in our backyard, but due to the previous owner’s many years of neglect, the lemon tree was badly infected with gall wasps. Gall wasps tend to attack citrus trees, and bore into the branches and create nests. The gall wasps nests’ show up as huge lumps in the branches […]


Where possible, I tend to make things in half quantities to try out a new recipe. I don’t like to be wasteful just incase it doesn’t work out, and I also don’t want to be a glutton by eating it all if it does work out! I’m not sure if it really affects the recipe […]

I thought I should also post the basic cream cheese frosting that I use as my “go to” recipe and what I used for the cupcakes in the previous post. It’s easy to make and I know it works. I first discovered this recipe when I was making a banana cake – banana cake and […]
