By | Various | No Comments

I love breakfast. And though I’m not a brunch person, I think breakfast is a good time to invite people over and to come together for an informal, healthy, strengthening meal to kick off a happy day.

Family Christmas Eve Dinner

By | From my kitchen, Savoury | One Comment

From the safety and peace of my couch, I am now already looking back on two fabulous Christmas dinners. Going through the pictures now, I can’t help but marvel at the beauty of it all.

Mango Cream Layer Cake

By | From my kitchen, Sweet | No Comments

This cooking/baking and blogging job isn’t always hard work… It’s nice to get a readily made cake delivered to your kitchen for a quick shoot, before it’s transported on for a party. My mom made this intricate, layered sponge, mango and cream cake for my nephew’s 6th birthday. Tt was, apparently, one hell of a lot of work to make…
