Chocolate Bomba With Tiramisu Cream And Win A Trip To Italy With Lavazza

  I am an Italophile (except when it comes to soccer!). Somewhere along the way I also became a Francophile but - Italy! Day dreaming ensues at the mere mention of that word. I have wanted to go to Tuscany forever and although I have never set foot in the country, I have my own impressions of what I can expect when I am there (thanks to the Internet!).

Rye Bread And Chilli Stir-Fry

Macaroon Bread, Eight Years Of Blogging And A Worldwide Giveaway Of My Cookbook

Herb Pesto Stuffed Grilled Flatbread

  When life gives you lemons, make apple juice! I have somehow always lived by this motto. Sometimes, it is just not possible to make this anomaly work but most of the time there is always a work around. It makes life more interesting and definitely more fun. So when The Good Guys sent me the final appliance - a spunky looking compact George Forman grill as part of  Kidspot's VOICES of 2013 Food & Wellbeing Challenge, I decided t... Read More >>
