Gourmet Carrot Cookies
Gourmet Carrot Cookies

  With Easter around the corner, all things carrot and eggs and bunnies and chickens are popping up plenty. I usually bake a nice carrot cake around this time of the year with all the trimmings, plenty to share with friends and family. This year though, I wanted...

Choc Chip And Peanut Butter Shortbread Stars

I found a recipe for this gorgeous shortbread in a dog-eared 2006 food magazine. Staying true to my fiddly nature, I did tweak this recipe a bit and ended up with a version of the shortbread that would appeal to peanut butter cookie lovers and pure shortbread...

Tessa Kiros Inspired Oat Cookies

I realized earlier today that my cookie supply needed to be replenished [yes, another of my New Year's resolutions is to bake and devour my own cookies, not store-bought ones]. I went through a couple of cookbooks till a recipe for simple oat cookies from Tessa...

Quinoa And M&M Cookie Dough + Quinoa Cookies
Quinoa And M&M Cookie Dough + Quinoa Cookies

  A great, crumbly cookie dough has many lives. First there is the obvious cookie. Then it dreams of being a golden crumble. Sometimes it fantasizes about being a chic truffle coated in glorious chocolate. On hot days it gets swirled through snowy white vanilla...

Anzac Cookies
Anzac Cookies

  There are a million and one variations of Anzac Biscuits out there. Maybe I am exaggerating a bit here. With only seven ingredients, how many variations can there possibly be? Before I embarass myself by stating a number that would suggest my inability to do...

Cookie Crumb Caramel Microwave Fudge
Cookie Crumb Caramel Microwave Fudge

Fudge evokes a memory of a cobbled pathway squirreling down an alley and tucking into a candy shop with a worn out  wrought iron sign hanging above its weathered door. "The Candy Shop" it says. Inside what appears to be a magical shop of big old English...

Oat And Salted Dark Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
Oat And Salted Dark Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

  I was sitting at this gorgeous little table in the corner of a cafe, right next to a closed glass panel window. Through the cafe's branding decal stuck to the glass, I got an occasional glimpse of a bicycle being wheeled by, a lone shopper trying to peer back...

Orange And Ricotta Crackle Cookies
Orange And Ricotta Crackle Cookies

  I have been drowning in food for the past five weeks. I am almost in the home stretch of writing a cookbook as far as recipe development, testing, writing and shooting is concerned. I have gone through nearly 120 recipes in that five week period, sometimes...

Craisin And Coconut Biscuits
Craisin And Coconut Biscuits

  I baked a batch of these simple biscuits last week to replenish my dwindling cookie supply. They were meant to be chewy cookies but I was preoccupied and left out the egg in the recipe. It turned out to be a good thing. The omission of egg actually made these...

Coconut Lime And Liqueur Macaroons
Coconut Lime And Liqueur Macaroons

I’ve only ever had round coconut macaroons in my lifetime. Recently, while browsing  Leila Lindholm’s A Piece Of Cake, I came across a recipe for coconut pyramids. The picture showed golden brown tips of what looked like pyramid shaped cookies...

Cornflake Choc Chip Cookies
Cornflake Choc Chip Cookies

Finding a cookie recipe that is like a blank canvas that you can paint  on with different colours every single time is like finding the treasure at the end of the rainbow, rare but so worth it. The recipe I am about to share is that blank canvas for me. ...

Baby Lemon Madeleines
Baby Lemon Madeleines

    Our citrus trees have been hibernating for the longest time now. I had given up on our Meyer lemon and Australian lime trees. But this weekend, I saw Nick hard at work mulching, feeding, water and weeding around them. Just a little TLC and they already...
