My Big Fat Pecan And Sultana Cookie
My Big Fat Pecan And Sultana Cookie

  I love big cookies. The ones that you get at coffee shops and delis for $3-$4 a piece. Cookies that are meals in themselves. Cookies that make you feel really naughty because they are so big, they don't even fit in one hand while you hold your coffee cup with...

Potato Olive And Sun Dried Tomato Bread
Potato Olive And Sun Dried Tomato Bread

  I have been baking breakfast breads for a while now and they are all sweet, invariably. So this time around I decided to bake a brunch bread instead and make it really savory. After scouring several of my books, I settled for this recipe from Australian Women's...

Rice Krispie And Marshmallow Easter Egg Pops

I went to my first Easter egg dyeing party yesterday and it was delightful. It is always wondrous to get a glimpse of traditions that are very foreign to you especially if they involve beautifully decorated delicate egg shells, cute bunnies galore and cheery yellow...

Stuffed Green Bell Peppers

Green bell peppers or capsicums are delightfully sweet and crunchy in season. Even their seeds are very mild flavored and not at all spicy. That makes these little green beauties absolutely perfect for stuffing and cooking whole. The recipe that I share with you today...

Baked Ricotta Cashewnut And Cardamom Cupcakes

  I have been entertaining the idea of experimenting with an unusual blend of ingredients for a light cupcake sans frosting. Yesterday, I took the idea to paper, scribbling an ingredient list and mentally adjusting the amounts. Once I was happy with the way it...

Pumpkin Spinach And Ricotta Cannelloni

I have never made cannelloni before and now that I have, I don't know why I never did. I was browsing through Bill Granger's "Feed Me Now" [yes, again .. and I would take this moment to enthusiastically recommend this book to anyone who is looking for...
