Edible Gifts, Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 14.02.2020

Valentine's Day is here once again (where did January go?!) and I couldn't let the day pass without making some suitably romantic treats. It's the one holiday where I don't restrain my urges to go all out, over-the-top pink and sugary on you guys! So here are some pretty White Chocolate and Cherry Hearts. These little hearts are a fun and easy no-bake treat that can be made with just a few ingredients. The filling is made from icing sugar, condensed milk and cherry flavour, with a touch of lemon juice to balance out all that sweetness. I got the cherry...

With a rich buttery flavour and crisp texture, vanilla butter cookies are just perfect in their simplicity! They're absolutely delicious as is, but can also be iced or dipped in chocolate.

Originally invented in Belgium, speculoos spread is popular in Europe and has recently grown a cult following in the US as well, where it is marketed as Biscoff. Sadly for South Africans, this product is not easily available. So you can imagine my...

Cakes & Cupcakes, Recipes / 10.01.2020

The first time I tasted a madeleine, I couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about. I found it to be rather dry and bland, a little like on over-baked cupcake. A few years later when next I tasted a madeleine, it was a revelation! It was crispy on the edges and light and fluffy on the inside, with just a hint of lemon flavour. Before I knew it I had devoured 5 of them!I now know that the deliciousness of a madeleine depends on 1) having a light and airy batter and 2) being served very, very fresh –...
