The weather has started to turn lately and it is now very obviously Autumn here.  We have even reverted back to non-daylight-savings time.  It gets darker earlier and the nights are cooler (mostly).  Today it started to rain.  A grey, dismal afternoon, with the promise of a week of more rain to come. Good weather for baking, my mother used to say. ...

I think I’m quietly going mad at the moment.  Although, perhaps not as quietly as I imagine, most days My head is filled with flavours, textures and recipe ideas for new chocolates, recipe ideas for a cookbook, ideas for protein bar flavours, ideas for this blog!  All this is distracting me as I am trying to work my way through a number of...

Happy New Year, everyone! Are you feeling all motivated and inspired by your new year’s resolutions?  Check that list twice, like Santa does, and make sure those resolutions are things you really want with all your heart and that they are realistic and achievable.  But dream large for the long-term, because our big dreams and visions are the things...

It’s a quiet Christmas here at Chocolate Chilli Mango this year.  Almost a non-Christmas, you might say.   There is no tree, no decorations, no special baking for Christmas Day, no gatherings with relatives.  My mother and I will be having a quiet day doing our own thing and remembering the musketeer that is no longer part of our troupe.  If my...

It almost feels as though Christmas has appeared out of nowhere this year, catching me unawares.   I have been flat-out working on my new artisan protein bar venture (yes, watch this space, protein bar aficionados … ) and this has taken me away from the blog and from recipe creation and testing.   I have also started making chocolates but...

I have been flat chat making chocolates and sorting out packaging for protein bars and a bazillion other things over the past two weeks.  But so much so that I have slacked off a little bit in my training.  While it is a truly exciting time (she says pushing her fear of failure aside … ), my training is important to me.  I’m a fidgeter.  I...

It’s been a long time between drinks, friends, and blog posts.  Yet again I’ve been a bit snowed under with work related stuff, some of it rather exciting though! I’ve been flat chat organising customers and packaging for a small range of protein bars I will be selling in selected outlets in Melbourne (mostly gyms) as well as starting...

I’ve been thinking of getting away for a week or so.  A chance for mum and I to have some quiet time.   Getaways make me think immediately of Port Douglas and my beloved Four Mile Beach, in far north Queensland.   It was my father’s favourite spot as well and so a perfect place for us to go.  Unfortunately, it’s just not on the...
