Often the term “obsession” or “obsessed” comes with negative connotations because we always imaged the stereotypes place out by Children’s tales and popular television. While some things are dangerous to be obsessed with, in everyday life I think everyone has one thing, which is constantly on their mind. The first thing they consider when making…

I am sure everyone has once in their life past or visited the local Fish and chip store or barque chicken cafe as a solution to hunger when you are too tired to cook anything (yes, even the people who like cooking need a break sometimes). I will admit, on the rare occasion I am…

I know this is deviates from the usual sweet baking treats from my kitchen and majority of the time this blog will be dedicated to these; I though as a special Christmas type post something savoury is order. Anyway, you roast duck in the oven, so it is appropriate in my mind. Around this time…

I hope you all had a great day of festive family time. While the main celebration was Christmas, it was also my dad birthday. Today was special Some may consider it unfortunate due to the pawning off of gifts as double duty presents, but he has never complained of that. Actually to think of it…

Failures in life and in the kitchen. They happen to all of us. Yes, I have baked bread that fell upon opening the oven and burnt the life out of nuts or caramel when on the stove. To get my macarons looking as they do now came from year of practice and digging for a…

I think there are more flavors in macrons than flavors of ice cream. Think about it. Candy cane macarons, chilli macarons; can you believe there is one that has the flavor of hamburger. If you know what Vegemite is then yes, there is a macaron for that too One can only think how they got…

You would think that making truffles are a joyful, pleasant experience. The process of making truffles should allow one to indulge in the repetitive activity to calm the senses during this time of year. Unfortunately, my first experience with truffles, did not come with calming feelings but lot of frustration because of these tiny balls…

This is like a second chapter to my last post and I feel this person deserves to be treated to a full blog post about them, not just a shared one. I have received a generous offering as an early Christmas present. Not from a family member or close friend but a person I hardly…

I am finally able to say that I am ready to accept that Christmas is here. Like accept it and be fully able REALLY to enjoy it. I do not get into the Christmas spirit when the shops bring out the fairy lights or Christmas decorations, nor when the advisements for turkey, ham and prawns…

Oh how I hate feeling of being sick. Once I become ill, I turn in to the worse cry baby that surpasses any problems in the terrible toddler years. Lucky I have not gotten ill over the past year (knock on wood), but close friends and family have all been sniffing and in terrible pain…
