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…

Vanilla Slice Pudding

Okay so for a while now I’ve been posting a lot of “healthy” recipes, which I know you guys don’t like too much of. This is Confessions of a “Glutton” after all, and it’s no secret that I love my sweets. I had bought a six pack of passionfruit at the discount price of $2…

Passionfruit Curd Tarts

Confession: Making your own shortcrust pastry is devilishly easy.
