With Valentine’s Day around the corner there a lot of amazing recipes springing up. I have had this red velvet cake waiting in the wings for a while now. Unsure when it would be appropriate to share it and all its quirkiness.
Now I see it’s a perfect contrast to the other more typical Valentine Day recipes around.
And of course, what you bake for your loved one will say a lot about you, and your relationship. Actually, in this bloggers opinion, that’s a load of bollocks. If pizza, a bottle of bubbles and a DVD is your thing – then you rock that. If you love fancy restaurants, degustation menus and shiny jewellery – then own that (and book ahead!).
In this case if you like clowning around. May I suggest red velvet MONSTER cake! (more…)
This is a three part post with three various types of cupcakes. Meet today’s star – Miss Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Why so many cupcakes? And believe me there were A LOT of cupcakes (hence the two week absence from blogging).
It’s because I’ve turned the big three-oh. (more…)
If you like peanut butter you’re going to love these chocolate chip cookies. They’re full of that peanut butter and chocolate taste that YOU love.

Why would you ruin a perfectly good cookie by putting peanut butter in it? Well, in this case you do it because it happens to be your boyfriend’s favourite cookie and you know you’ll probably get out of doing the washing up for a few nights if you make them. (more…)
Here is a perfect recipe for when you’re cooking for people you don’t like or just have a thing for carcinogenic food. In just 4 easy steps you too can ruin countless recipes.
Ingredients (necessary to have all the below within a 7 day period):
- Start a new job
- Return from an interstate holiday the day before starting said job
- Purchase a second hand car
- Commit to baking at least two batches of muffins and some muesli bars for a food swap
- 1 broken timer
- 1 faulty smoke alarm (though, to be fair, I’m quite glad the smoke alarm hasn’t being going off every second day)
Step 1: Upon returning from an interstate holiday (the day before starting a new job) commit to baking most evenings. Insist you are invincible and, most probably, Wonder Woman. Watch. Me. Go.
It helps it you can get cocky and start challenging yourself to mixing entire batches of muffins in the space of two songs. Which, for the record I totally can do. I didn’t say anything about the cooking process. (more…)
