Making fruit muffins at home always leaves me conflicted.  You see, mum and I are both of the more is definitely better when it comes to adding fruit to muffin batter.  Because we love our fruit and more of it just makes muffins taste amazing. But there is a price to pay and the baker in me gets a major case of the sads when those delicious muffins, laden...

Well, that was some pretty awful punning in the title, wasn’t it?  Still, you don’t see too many protein bars that practically scream with the fresh citrusy goodness of mandarins.  Why not, I say?  Mandarin protein bars are the shizz. I’m sorry I have been slack as with posting over the last month or two.  Lots of family stuff (some of it...

I love Autumn foods.  Much more than I love the Autumn weather and certainty that Winter is coming.  But the produce!  Wow.  The second blush of raspberries is always the best for me, even though I know they will soon be gone for another year.  The new season’s pears and apples makes me want to bake, stat.  Chestnuts and figs make me giddy.  Yes,...

Forgive me, dear readers, it’s been 4 months since my last post … wait, no.   There’ll be none of that.  No long-winded apologies.  Or short ones for that matter. I’ve been off doing other stuff, but it’s all good stuff.  Well, mostly.   I had surgery in September thanks to a long-standing hip injury and some time off from...

I know.  I know.  Sometimes you just don’t have either the time or the energy to make buttercream. Maybe you find the thought of making buttercream just a little too daunting. Maybe you just found out you are about to have guests coming over and are paralysed by the idea that you only have 30 minutes in which to make cake appear out of nowhere....

I wish I had the time to follow and read more food blogs, but the reality is that I don’t.   So I only consistently stalk follow a select few that I absolutely could not live without.  For their recipes, witty repartee, or a shared aesthetic sensibility, and because I love what they do and how they do it.  One of the very first blogs I followed and...

Life has recently dumped a few bagfuls of lemons on my lap. Well, two of my aunts gave me bags of lemons from their trees, which is close enough, right? Big, juicy, fragrant lemons. I’m using them in literally everything at the moment, getting the best of them while they are still fresh. So be prepared for a fair swag of lemony recipes on this site,...

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.  Well,...
