Alfajores

I am not a hipster – never have been, and never will be – by any stretch of the imagination. I’ve never been the one who joins in on the frenzy to try a new craze – waiting until over a year to try infamous – near Sydney celebrity status – creations such as the Black…

Coconut Chia Pudding

“Dairy-free, sugar-free; I think some of them are just a new eating disorder. There’s the ‘I Quit Sugar’ program. And so many people quitting carbs, quitting drinking… It’s ‘I quit’, ‘I quit.’ For me, it’s about a lifestyle choice.” These were the words voiced by celebrity chef Donna Hay at the end of last week,…

Coconut & Raspberry Brownie

NQN’s Lumberjack Cake

Kulinary Adventures of Kath and I share a mutual love of baking, and about a month or so ago she presented me with a beautiful slab (at the gym, of all places) of what I would later learn was called ‘Lumberjack cake’. This recipe is an original recipe from Lorraine Elliot’s blog Not Quite Nigella, and she was…
