           I cannot believe that December is upon us! It’s unbelievable that the year is drawing to a close and we are hurtling rapidly towards Christmas and some much needed holidays. In realising that the festive season is moving to full swing, I also realised that I needed to get my festive baking on (you […]

Last year Saskia blogged about her failed attempts at her grandmother’s Anzac biscuits. Said failure was largely due to the imprecise nature of the recipe and some missteps with the ingredients (I maintain that Saskia forgot the flour in the first batch). On Twitter Kate from Eating Melbourne gave an Anzac recipe from taste her […]

My brother L lives overseas (you can read about last time he visited here). This time, he arrived at 6.30am on a Saturday morning for a one week visit. Mum & dad offered to do the airport pick up and while I wasn’t really up for a 6am start, I offered to host a quick […]

My colleague (and friend) C recently came into my office and handed me some rhubarb from her friend’s veggie patch. I’ve always loved rhubarb, but I wanted to make something different from the standard stewed rhubarb or rhubarb crumble. I thought a rhubarb muffin could be nice for a change, and whipped up a batch, using […]

A few months ago I was feeling pretty rough.  After a few doctor visits and several needle jabs, I discovered that my iron levels were severely lacking. Ever since then, I’ve been trying to incorporate more iron into my diet. A friend of mine makes these fab little tahini balls which are packed full of iron […]

     Happiness. I was back in the kitchen recently after a fairly long hiatus. For the past few months, I’ve spent pretty much all my waking hours furtively tapping away at my laptop trying to wrap up my PhD thesis. Thankfully, it’s all bound and parcelled now; it’s probably sitting in the in-tray on some grey-haired examiner’s desk […]

     It’s fair to say that I am easily led. Particularly when it comes to sweet treats. After reading about chocolate and peanut delights on wheres the beef? and cake mistress, it was inevitable I would make a batch for myself. I decided to make these for my friend M and her little boy, J […]

Recently, I have been doing some study. I honestly don’t understand how Saskia has been studying for so many years and manages to get anything done. As soon as I spend any length of time in the house, all I want to do is bake. My first study distraction was to bake these delicious choc-chip cookies. […]
