sucker for sales. Every time I see a “buy
one get one free” sign, before you can even say ‘sucker’, I’m at the till
handing over my cash!
I bought 2
large packs of apples a couple of weeks ago.
Yep, you know it, buy one get one free!
While the whole family loves apples, we’re starting to get a bit tired
of them. 2 weeks later, there are still
a couple of apples turning slightly soft and wrinkly in the fruit bowl! Perfect for apple cake!
love this recipe which has been adapted from another recipe that a friend
passed on to me on a scrap piece of paper.
It’s quick and it only takes 1 bowl…well, 2 if you use another bowl for
weighing your ingredients….oh and a measuring cup….and a spoon….ok, there’s
still a bit of washing up to do! J
Plus, with all that apple in the cake, it’s ‘almost’ healthy!
spent most of my life not knowing what an Oreo tasted like. For some reason they never really appealed to
me.I just thought that they looked like
a dry chocolate biscuit with hard cream in the middle.
I always remember
this TV advertisement years and years ago where this little boy is sitting on
his doorstep when his mum brings him some milk and Oreos. He then separates an Oreo on his doorstep and
his dog comes up and licks half of it, which doesn’t bother the little boy as
he eats both halves! Obviously those
Oreos are good enough to eat dog spit and all!
Anyway, I recently
decided to try those Oreos and was pleasantly surprised! Now I just can’t get enough. I love the little packets of mini-Oreos, I like
the packets of big Oreos, and I love Oreos in cupcakes.
Oreos in cupcakes has to
be one of the coolest ideas. I think I
came across it somewhere on the web or on Pinterest.
recipe here and now we’re back to sugar!
I’m addicted…to making marshmallows.
I find all that whisking quite relaxing and very satisfying for some
reason. I love that moment when the hot
syrup hits the meringue and it all fluffs up!
Pure beauty! Ok – maybe I’m
getting a little too excited about hot sugar water!
to the marshmallows. The green tea and
chocolate balance out the sugar perfectly so that the sweetness doesn't overwhelm you. These are my favourite so
blueberries in all forms: fresh, frozen, jam, compote, ice-cream, cake, yogurt….blueberry
anything and everything. While our
fridge is constantly stocked with fresh blueberries, I almost never use fresh
blueberries for cooking. It just seems
like a waste to boil down a load of fresh juicy and Expensive blueberries.
my penchant for blueberry type desserts, I tend to have a ton of frozen
blueberries in the freezer. Just as easy
to use and a lot cheaper. Gotta save
those pennies when we can! I’ve been
known to munch my way through a packet of frozen blueberries as well – lovely
really new about these bars and there have been a million other versions of
blueberry crumble bars posted on the web.
However, I love how easy this recipe is to make..and eat! It works as a snack and it also works as a
hot pudding type dessert!
