Passionfruit and Mango Pavlova

What are you thankful for from 2017? In 2017 I looked back and was thankful for my job and the education that my parents funded for me. The income I’ve earned from my job allows me to pay rent in a wonderful part of Sydney, pay for my food, social activities with friends and family,…

Passionfruit Vanilla Macarons

Has anyone ever seen that strange phenomenon outside where there’s a breeze going from a steady direction, but at some spot on the pavement there’s a random tightly-knit swirling circle of leaves and dust; seeming to go at its own pace? There’s probably some sort of scientific or meteorological explanation for this, but I’d much…

Lemon Dream Cake

I’ve had this recipe in my Bookmarks list for some time now, and it was a matter of waiting for the right occasion to pop up in order for me to make it. This is not a cake you make every-other-day – and when it came to my dessert-duties for Mother’s Day lunch, I knew…

It was a sumptuously beautiful rustic location, with hanging pots from the ceiling trailing vines down over our heads, and huge fresh pomegranates, bunches of…

Super Easy Pavlova Bites

Issue was, while they were filled with a delectable (and ridiculously easy) caramel, I topped them with raspberries, and anyone who has photographed raspberries will know that it’s one of the few fruits that…

Selah

I have a friend who I used to study law with and has since transferred to another uni to complete her studies, but we always make sure we catch up regularly…over food. Sadly, our mutual love of food was only discovered when we parted, but upon realising this, there has been much exploration made in…
