It’s time to be thinking about Christmas again.  This year has whizzed past so fast, it’s enough to make one dizzy.  While many of you are pondering Christmas puddings, sugar cookies in the shapes of angels and stars, and all the globally recognised traditional Christmas fare … nothing screams Christmas louder to me than TORRONE   …...

  Ahhh, there are as many ways to make a mousse as there are stars in the galaxy … trust me, I should know. Ex-astrophysicist who makes lots of mousse. Qualified 😀 If we were talking full-on wicked desserts, I’d be getting on my soapbox and ranting ad-nauseum about authenticity, the abomination I consider to be the adding of cream, and...

If the choux fits … go ahead, eat it and enjoy the experience! I love love love choux pastry.  It’s possibly my favourite pastry of all.  The silky satiny shine when it’s ready to pipe.  The way it puffs up into magical, golden shells.  Sigh.  Endless possibilities for deliciousness.  Ahhh, mon petit choux … Which begs the question...

This blog is giving me whiplash … does it do that to you?  All this flipping between wickedness and protein bad%$#ness is getting me confused.  Would help if I just redesigned the whole thing so it’s all sorted, right?  It’s still on the TO DO list.  Promise.  For the record, I’m not procrastinating.  Just have this pesky day job...

Cheesecake.  I never make cheesecake.  Well, not often.  Not a huge fan, to be honest. But what a great idea for getting a protein fix with dessert!  All those eggs and high protein cheese, yoghurt, etc.  Plus, you can do so much with them … the sky is the limit with flavours you can play with.  It’s not a treat you would have every day but...
