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...

2 Minute Nutella Mug Cake
2 Minute Nutella Mug Cake

Mug cakes are like a round of gossip. You come across one, you indulge, you pine for more, you dig around for another one, you indulge some more until you are spent and then it all dies down for a few days. Until you come across another one and you have to do it all...

Spaghetti Al Pesto
Spaghetti Al Pesto

For the past two weeks, I have had my nose buried in Audrey Gordon's Tuscan Summer, a cookbook of hilarious proportions. The book is so funny that my boys have to stop what they are doing and give me a worried look as I first splutter coffee over my sweatshirt and...

Shakshuka Eggs
Shakshuka Eggs

  Every time I say Shakshuka, I feel a warmth creeping up from my toes to my neck. I am weird with words like that. I have favourite words and words I abhor. I have words that tickle me when I say them out loud and words that comfort me when I roll them off my...
