Cinnamon rolls. Kanelbullar. Kanelbulle. After seeing many #kanelbulle-grams from Ewen, when he was swanning around in Scandinavia; I knew I HAD to make them..and well, quite frankly; it was easier, and cheaper than jumping on the next flight over to stuff my face with all the kanelbulle I could find.

I am an over achiever. There. I said it.

I invited some friends over for breakfast and made so many options incase someone didn’t like one thing. But this granola had everyone fighting for the last bit!

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

Theme 10: Blue Cookbook Used: Bonne Maman – The Seasonal Cookbook Author: Bonne Maman Okay, so my genius oven burnt the cake, my photos of said burnt cake sucked…. I should have dusted the cake with icing sugar to make it look less burnt. So you will have to deal with Instagram photos. Remember what

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.

This recipe wasn’t destined to be on my blog. My mum started making it then we had an old family friend drop by so the cake was stuck at step 1. I ended up finishing it off for her whilst she socialised the night away. If you like hazelnuts, this one is for you! Coming

This one got eaten within 1 day! I didn’t put in the optional amaretto. VERY moist cake, but everyone who ate it agreed that it was better on it’s own and not with the cream/yoghurt that is suggested to serve with in the recipe. 220g unsalted butter, softened 250g caster sugar 1 teaspoon natural vanilla
