Classic Brownies

Every girl needs a brownie recipe. Because brownies. You really only need about 9 ingredients, of which 1 is entirely optional. Brownies are so universal and so easy to make that we’ve created a real brownie culture, and a culture comes with controversy and debate. There are two major discussion when it comes to brownies….

Special Birthday Apple Pie

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming for a very special occasion: my mums birthday is tomorrow! My mum is an amazing lady. She raised three kids all on her own, while first going to school and then running her own business. She was always there when we needed her. She would make all kinds of…

Mango Coco Popsicles

These are loosely based on the Pina Colada popsicles I did two weeks ago. I was looking for something that was as tasty, but a little less stuffed with coconut. I decided to omit the shredded coconut in favour of just coconut milk. I decided on mango because it’s naturally sweeter than pineapple, and blends…

Raspberry Banana Popsicles

Sometimes, things just work out. These popsicles were exactly that. I came up with them, made them and was happy. That doesn’t happen very often. In the end, all popsicles are frozen smoothies on a stick. I decided to freeze my favourite smoothie. Banana strawberry. I couldn’t find strawberries anymore, only raspberries, but they make me…

Melon Sorbet

Sorbet is the dairy free answer to the all encompassing craving for ice cream. When I first went dairy free I was devastated by the prospect of giving up ice cream. Then I found out that I could still have sorbet, which is the best ice cream anyway. Sorbet is lower in calories and fats,…

Cappuccino Popsicles

Coffee … the only way to be awake by the time you get to the office, the worlds #1 hot morning beverage. There are about a million ways to make it, everyone has their preferences (french press, filter, instant, etc.). Also a million ways to drink it (sugar, milk, sweetener, cold, hot, black, etc.) but…

Piña Colada Popsicles

These are favourites at the office, the dumping ground of my experiments. Whenever I try anything new and I make too much (which generally happens at least once a week) I bring it all to the office and feed it to my poor unsuspecting colleagues. They haven’t seemed to notice yet that I unashamedly try…

Lemon Orange Popsicles

Living on a very warm island, the one thing you want around 16:00 on an august afternoon is have ice cream. When it has become too hot to handle in the office, even with all the windows and doors open and the one tiny fan we have on it’s highest setting, you could murder someone…

Chocolate Guinness Mousse

 It’s almost the end of chocolate week and I must say I’m sure I’ll miss it. However, there’s still a recipe that I owe you, and that’s the one for Chocolate Mousse. Usually made with cream, this version of chocolate mousse is lighter, fluffier and as delicious as the traditional one.

Super Easy Strawberry Cake

This is a recipe I got from a good friend of my mums. A few weeks ago we had an impromptu barbecue party at my mums house. Which means that we decided we wanted to have a small barbecue for just my mum and her friend and my brother and me. Then I suggested I…
