Whole Wheat And Soy Waffles With Raspberries
Whole Wheat And Soy Waffles With Raspberries

    My Cuisinart Waffle Maker is two years old. It makes round waffles with four segments. The waffle pockets are not as deep as those in Belgian waffle makers. This means that the pockets don't hold an insane amount of topping thereby reducing the calories...

White Chocolate And Coconut Truffles
White Chocolate And Coconut Truffles

I was totally making up a cake for an impromptu barbecue we were invited to over the weekend and because I was going to decorate the cake with fresh figs and violas, I thought that white frosting would look perfect. But I only had white chocolate bits, not proper...

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...

Lemon Pikelets
Lemon Pikelets

Apricot Fig And Goji Berry Powerballs
Apricot Fig And Goji Berry Powerballs

You put a group of women together and you could publish a cookbook. I say this because when women with even the slightest inclination towards food come together recipes are created, shared, swapped, evolved and adapted. It always happens to me when I get together with...

Purple Carrot Cake And Mr. Periwinkle
Purple Carrot Cake And Mr. Periwinkle

I miss winter. I really do. Even more so because spring is stuck in a limbo not being able to decide whether to warm up or stay cool. Winter this year was even more exciting than previous years because I discovered to my absolute glee a herbivorous creature called Mr....
