Hot Cross Bun And Nutmeg Tray Bake
Hot Cross Bun And Nutmeg Tray Bake

My boys once averse to Hot Cross Buns have only just started eating them this year (they are 11 and 7 and can be overtly fussy when it comes to sweet things!). As a result, in the past few weeks, I have been making regular trips to my local Bakers Delight for their...

Passionfruit Butter (Curd)
Passionfruit Butter (Curd)

  This Passionfruit Curd recipe is one of my favourite recipes to whip up in about 15 minutes at the weekend when I have a bowl full of passion fruits lying around. Because you can make so many things with this passionfruit curd. Toppings, cake, ice cream and...

Quinoa Muffins And Six Years Of Blogging
Quinoa Muffins And Six Years Of Blogging

  When you do something for a very long time, it becomes a way of life. It integrates into your being and becomes one with you. Then it is no longer a thing. It is you. I started food blogging six years ago and today food blogging is me.   It is a milestone....

Wholemeal and totally wicked Chocolate Cake

  April in my family is a cake heavy month. With four birthdays in the span of 3 weeks, there is so much cake that at the end of it, I vow never to eat cake again. Not for long though, come May and I am already baking well into the winter months. Every few months, we...

I promise myself before I start writing a new post that I will not talk about the weather. I really promise myself. But then I start writing and weather is the first thing that pops up in my mind. I read somewhere on a delicious looking blog that weather is all people...

Dark Chocolate Sunflower Bundt Cake

I find baking in bundt pans very fiddly. I like ogling at cake pictures on sites like Sweetapolita and wondering "How the heck does she manage to get it out of that bundt completely intact?". See that is my biggest problem with bundt pans. No matter how well I grease...

Pearl Barley And Feta Oven Pie
Pearl Barley And Feta Oven Pie

  This is a beautiful supper or brunch dish. It presents itself like a work of art, as if the garden fairy came by and dotted your serving with greens and whites when you were day dreaming. A frittata in theory, this dish becomes an almost pie - hearty in nature...

  Are you getting caught up in the end of the year madness yet? I have been wooed and waltzed right into it like a princess at the royal ball. I am doing a bit of housekeeping - notice the new header up top? It is the Cook Republic food truck and it is here to...

Big Fry-Up Breakfast
Big Fry-Up Breakfast

Breakfast with the family on the weekends is a relaxed, muted but lavish affair. For once, I am not the one doing the cooking. That alone makes it a special treat for me. We have fresh eggs from the chooks, my favourite Kransky sausages from the deli, fresh herbs from...

Potato Bacon And Egg Grill Sandwich
Potato Bacon And Egg Grill Sandwich

I did a hearty and warm salad for dinner last night. No pasta and no rice, I thought to myself. I whipped up a hot pot of pumpkin and potato soup. Drawing inspiration from a Lyonnaise salad that I make quite often, I decided to make a warm version of it with some...
