Chocolate Chunk & Raspberry Cookies

You know that feeling. It starts with the slight fidgeting, the inability to concentrate on any one thing. The sigh of frustration for no reason in particular. Then the snappiness starts when someone is being just a little irrational or annoying, then the growing niggling sensation, the craving. The hunger. CHOCOLATE. For us ladies, you…

Oat, Apple & Raspberry Loaf

So this weekend I felt like something….healthier. Hahahaha you say, who are you kidding? 😛 Well to be honest, most of the things you bake at home will be healthier than any of the baked goods you buy outside, because you can not only control the content of what you put in, but also space…

Raspberry Marshmallow Wagon Wheels

Small, sticky hands. Bright, eager eyes. That oh-so-sweet moment of anticipation and then the glow of satisfaction. Who remembers their favourite childhood sweets? I remember back in my early primary school days, when one of my parents would come to pick me up after swim school, I would always get some form of treat (I…

Raspberry Tea & Honey Macarons

I always get excited when I have leftover egg whites in the fridge, and you all know what that means….. macarons! Originally, because I was a bit short on time last week, I was just going to whip up a giant pavlova to farewell my sister before she heads off to the States for a…

Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Raspberry Jelly Macarons

Macarons and I, we have this love-hate relationship. Some days it’s all hearts and flowers, everything is fine and dandy, beautiful and wondrous. Other days we have hissy fits, hiccups, tears and tantrums. But I have to say, the making up is always worth it 😉 I can never resist. No matter the drama, I…

Raspberry & Almond Scone

And after a couple of days of miserable, grey weather, the sun has decided to grace us with its presence, fortunately on my day off 🙂 While I already had planned to make macarons today (luckily it wasn’t raining today; humidity + macarons = disaster!), I also felt like rustling up something a little more…

Raspberry Bakewell Tart

So my sister has an office morning tea today for a colleague that is leaving, and earlier in the week she made me an offer, for me to cater for the morning tea and that she would pay me in return. She had a number of requests: nothing with too much chocolate, nothing too sweet…

Mother’s Day Raspberry Buttermilk Pancakes

I hope you all are spoiling your mothers this Mother’s Day! As mentioned in my previous post, my mum requested that I make her the cinnamon nut scrolls (recipe here), however I decided at the same time that I’d whip up some raspberry buttermilk pancakes at the same time for a bit of a breakfast…

Raspberry Banana Bread

Confession: for me, the best part of the working day is lunch. I spent most of the morning on my toes, my gaze anxiously flickering to the little digital clock in the corner of my computer screen, eagerly watching that miniscule colon tick away to 1:00 PM. Tea breaks only momentarily curb my anticipation. After…
