Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies

These Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies are a variation on one of my favourite cookie recipes of all time. Just picture: a tender, soft cookie baked to enclose a delicious strawberry cheesecake filling. It’s a winning combination!  I just realised that I’ve been making different versions of these ‘stuffed’ cookies for more than 10 years. I keep thinking up new flavour combinations … Read More

Buttermilk Cherry Cobbler

If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll know that there’s nothing I love more than a baked fruit dessert. I could never get sick of this kind of thing! Whether it’s pie or pandowdy, cobbler or crumble, buckle or betty. I love their curious, quirky names and the multitude of ways to prepare them. For me, they are perfect … Read More

Bill Granger’s Coconut Bread

One of my little projects this year is going back through fifteen years of blog archives and updating some of my very favourite recipes. I started my blog as a graphic design college student back in 2007. I was just getting into baking, blogging and photography and never imagined that I would still be doing all these things so many … Read More

Mulled Wine Cherry Cheesecake Bars

Here we go! It’s finally December and I am torn between “OMG already?!” and “OMG finally!” after this crazy year. When we went into lockdown in June, it felt like we hit the pause button on life. Those months don’t really count, do they? But here we are, it’s Christmas again and I feel uncharacteristically festive. The first recipe that … Read More

Watermelon Paloma

It’s crazy to think that before a few short years ago, I had baaaad tequila memories. But these days it’s one of my favourite spirits, and I truly feel like I’m making up for lost time. Last year I got really into margaritas, but this year I am into another tequila-based drink. Summer of Palomas, anyone? Yup, I think it … Read More

Spiced Nectarine Chilli Chutney

I’m here today with a recipe that should definitely be the newest addition to all your future cheese boards – Spiced Nectarine Chilli Chutney! Jam is my jam, but I also love trying other kinds of preserving. This recipe was born out of an abundance of homegrown chillies and my well-established love of summer stone fruit. I’ve been wanting to … Read More

Blueberry Loaf Cake with Lemon and Thyme Glaze

I am hanging on to the end of summer with a celebration of my favourite fruits. This delightful Blueberry Loaf Cake is the perfect treat for afternoon tea. It’s full of fresh bursting blueberries and covered in a tangy cream cheese glaze flavoured with lots of lemon and delicate thyme leaves.  If you’ve been reading for a while, you might … Read More

Peach Crumble Cake

Can you still say Happy New Year when it’s almost the end of January? I think it’s ok since this is my first post of the year. I took an (unexpected) extended break from my blog and social media after the holidays. It was actually really nice to recharge my creativity and cook for fun without thinking about recipe testing! … Read More

Lavender Lemonade

I have been wanting to share this recipe for Lavender Lemonade with you guys for such a long time! I made it earlier this year but I didn’t manage to take any photos – disaster! It’s the perfect drink for spring, so the timing worked out perfectly. It is a super lovely mocktail – floral, sweet and tart… but it … Read More

Dutch Baby Pancake with Chamomile Infused Honey

I’m a big fan of easy, portable breakfast ideas that you can prep ahead of time and take on the go. I run my own business, and most days are busy. I’m either running out to a photo shoot, eating at my desk or skipping breakfast entirely. That’s why I love a weekend brunch – the chance to take things … Read More
