Chocolate Hommus

Join us This may be my new favourite snack! Delicious chocolately goodness with a secret ingredient - chickpeas! Even kidney beans work a treat! Who would have thought. This is a great party food or slightly healthier dessert. I use 70%+ dark chocolate for this recipe. If you do not like dark chocolate you can use milk chocolate. The dark will give it a much stronger chocolate flavour so just keep that in mind. It is best consumed straight away. [...]

Condensed Milk Biscuits

Join us Does anyone else have 265 cans of condensed milk in their cupboard? I have no idea how I started a condensed milk family but I have (actually I blame my Lazy Caramel Slice recipe!!). They are all there staring at me every time I open the pantry. I hate to break up the family but I need to start using some. Friends and family are about to be inundated with food gifts! These biscuits are a great way [...]

Caramelised Onion Dip

Join us I absolutely love dip! Nothing  beats a dip and cheese night with friends but Im struggling to find good store bought dips these days.

This is my Caramelised Onion Dip which is a delicious variation of my Bacon and Onion Dip. It a [...]

Cheese and Spinach Muffins

These are so yummy served cut in half with some shaved ham and relish for a different spin on lunch. Today is the third day of our fourth round of the [...]

Caramel Rice Bubble Bars

Join us This recipe for Caramel Rice Bubble Bars comes from my wonderful friend Amy who is an amazing cook and has so many amazing recipes just like this one. Word of warning - these Caramel Rice Bubble Bars are very moreish! I didn't think I would like them as much as I did. They are a strong honey flavour but the sesame seeds add a slightly nutty flavour to them. These are a great twist to traditional rice bubble [...]
