coconut & date chocolate mousse

2020-01-10T23:38:54+00:00

2020-01-12T03:56:23+00:00

  Who doesn't love Reese's peanut butter cups?! These are healthier version and what I've been bringing along to festive celebrations this year. They're simple (only 5 ingredients), quick and forgiving with the quantities. The chocolate layer sets slightly harder than the nutty [...]

2020-04-09T01:42:07+00:00

    In the past, for me, hot cross buns always fell into the same sad category as fruit cake, marmalade and the dreaded 'mince pies' - collectively rejected due to one little overpowering ingredient which, in my opinion, once removed, belongs [...]

raw chocolate mousse

2020-01-12T04:20:26+00:00

  Chocolate mousse has long been one of my favourite desserts - because it's rich & chocolatey, yet smooth and light. At first I was a little disheartened to realise that it's classically full of sugar and dairy and generally [...]

  One of the things I'm most interested to explore when I'm visiting rural areas is the local produce. Lately I stayed in Orange (in South-Western NSW) and learnt that Orange/Bathurst is Australia's main hazelnut production region. So whilst at [...]
