#Apple


Frozen fish doesn’t have to be bad, it can be deliciously flakey, like fresh fish.


Primrose Bakery in London is well known for their delectable cakes, cocktail cupcakes, loaves and biscuits.

I try making their famous apple & blueberry loaf at home, and it’s a cracker!


Jazz Apple season is in full swing again. I decided to make a smaller version of the gorgeous looking fine apple tart from Flour & Stone. Whilst It might not be exactly the same, it’s still a winner in my books!


Earlier this year, Helados Jauja flicked me an email with a collaboration proposal. It was the height of Summer, it was hot, and ice-cream seemed like a good idea. I picked two ingredients, they picked another two ingredients, and with the 4 main ingredients I made a cake, and they made an ice-cream.


I’ve wanted to make a puffed apple pancake for some years now. Not months. YEARS.

Yesterday I was determined to not wait any longer, and got to the task of making it in my new skillet. What a gorgeous way to start the day!


Wishing my Dad a very Happy 60th Birthday today!

Look Dad, I made you this cake.. you’ll get to gobble it up tonight, after dinner… if you eat all your greens!

I made it with the very popular variety of apples that people are going gaga over, Jazz Apples.


This recipe is sensational. Every time I make them, the crowd goes wild!

So what are you waiting for?


A lovely, country style chicken dish, that utilises the sweet, crunchy, popular Jazz apple.


I’m trying to do as many recipes that I been gawking at for months, even years that involve the deliciousness of summer stone fruit. There are a few mango recipes that I’m afraid are going to have to wait until next season, as I’ve missed the boat. For now I’m concentrating on peaches, nectarines and

Yesterday a few of us had a deep fry vs air fry lunch. Cherrie even deep fried crumbed cheese (cheddar and Camembert) and may I tell you, whilst it was all delicious, there is such a thing as too much fried food. After sipping gallons of green tea and being as active as possible after

Melbourne’s answer to Adriano Zumbo? I’ve not been to Zumbo in Sydney… YET. But I’ve seen enough to think when Zumbo finally opens in Melbourne he may just have a bit of competition. Lux Bite is a cute little cafe with gorgeous looking desserts with quirky names. The staff are extremely friendly, and their enthusiasm

At the last cooking the books feast, I suggested a Nigella Lawson book, after we decided we didn’t want to do Bourke Street Bakery. Agnes flicked through a few of Nigella’s books that were in Cherrie’s collection, and we decided on her latest book, Kitchen. ALTHOUGH…. as I began to do this post, I noticed

We somehow got into the bad habit of not eating breakfast on the weekend and just having a fairly average lunch. I decided that enough of bad habits, it’s time we turned ourselves around. After eating such a good breakfast, I felt so good for the rest of the day. It was so filling and

Ever since I started liking chai, the name Bondi Chai has been mentioned many times. Figuring it was only something limited to Sydney people, I moved on with my life. I should have just taken 2 seconds to look at their website to see that they are stocked nationwide! Bondi Chai is Australian’s only Gold

Believe it or not, Easter is just around the corner. Actually, just writing that made me realise just how around the corner it actually is! Eeeeep!!!

I have always wanted to try this recipe for bircher muesli. I didn’t even know what bircher muesli was all about for quite some time. That was until I tried it on a recent trip to Brown Sugar Cafe…. it was ❤ at first bite. So, in an attempt to save money, I made a

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had a Masterchef inspired night. This recipe was in a pressure test challenge where 3 of the worse performing chefs have to follow a recipe, and the chef that served the worst dish goes home immediately. Whilst this may seem like a simple recipe, you can easily

A bit of mid-week baking to make the week a little sweeter. This cake was so nice and moist, whilst remaining light and fluffy. The cinnamon in the crumble really makes the cake I think. The sultanas break it up and make it slightly healthier than say a chocolate cake… well that’s what I tell

I decided to bake my co-workers a cake as they always enjoy my cakes and I always enjoy the compliments that follow. I had some sad looking apples in the fruit bowl and realised I hadn’t posted one of my favorite apple cake recipes, so here it is for you all. Not only does it
