Apple & Blackberry Slice

There’s a new friend I’ve been catching up with on a regular basis for the past month or so, almost on a weekly basis. Suffice it to say that our relationship does revolve around food. The first time I asked if she wanted to hang out, I gave her a box of my Tiramisu (which…

Rhubarb, Mascarpone & Hazelnut Tarts

I love the zoo. From being taken to Sydney’s Taronga Zoo as a five year old by The Sister to wandering around Singapore Zoo on my own at the end of last year, I’m always held captivated by the animals.

Raspberry, Apple & Almond Breakfast Muffins

On weekdays I usually have a protein-rich cereal with skim milk and some fruit, but on the weekends it can slide significantly depending on what’s in the house. Sometimes I stay good and have some delicious golden toasted sourdough with a thick slather of lush avocado, or if there’s cake and muffins in the house,…
