Lime Tarts

I must admit it’s been so long since I last wrote a blog post, it seems very foreign. But with so much time at home, what better to do than reignite my love for writing about food hey?

Whilst everyone has been busy quarantine baking, I’ve been doing quite the opposite and dialing down the baking – there’s not enough appetite for desserts in this house alone!

So baking has been limited to our family’s favourite’s only, and this lime tart is definitely up there amongst our all time faves.

Pearl Milk Tea Soufflé Pancakes

The pearl milk tea dessert craze has hit Asia hard, with crazy pearl studded desserts popping up all over my Instagram feed. I’m talking Pearl milk tea cakes, pancakes, crepes…. just absolutely anything you could think of really!

And with the rising popularity of milk teas (just look at all the newly opened drink joints!) I’m sure it’ll come to Sydney some time. But rather than waiting around for some café to get onto it, I thought I’d whip up a batch of these pancakes myself for brunch. Read more

White Chocolate Raspberry Chia Muffins

White Choc Chia Muffins, Easy, Healthy, Low Sugar Treat, Baking

It’s been a while since I’ve actually cooked anything from a recipe in print. There’s just too much recipe inspiration online!

But when I came across this Vegan White Chocolate and Butter Bean Muffins with Raspberry and Chia Jam recipe in The Chia Co’s recipe booklet, and had the ingredients and curiosity to try out a vegan muffin recipe, this was the result.

Healthier IKEA Chocolate Oat Balls

If you’ve been reading this blog over the past couple of months, you’ll probably notice that I’ve been really into recreating things that I’ve tried (or in some cases haven’t even tried). So given how much I enjoy the IKEA Chocolate Oat Balls, it was only a matter of time before I had to recreate this one in my own kitchen!

If you haven’t tried the IKEA Chocolate Oat Balls before, you need to get yourself to your nearest IKEA and buy a pack! It’s essentially a rolled chocolate truffle, but better. Packed with coconut and oats for substance and a strong hit of coffee for that extra kick, what’s not to love?

Easy Chocolate Brownies

Easy Chocolate Brownies

When I was a student starting placement as a dietitian, I was keen to quickly jump straight into it. This meant teaching everyone on all the healthier alternatives they could be having:
• Having butter on your toast? Why not try a vegetable based spread?
• Drinking coffees with regular milk? Swap it for skim!
• Burger for lunch? How about a sandwich?

Of course, most didn’t take on the advice.
