Honey Nougat

We bought our house after looking though it for 5 minutes – it was only the 2nd one we’d looked at. We buy brand new cars without test driving them. Last year we flew to Fiji on Christmas day with 2 weeks notice. We’re impulsive like that. With slightly less financial investment, this nougat popped up on my … Continue reading

Red Hot Chocolate Lava Puddings & a giveaway!

Clearly I don’t take valentines day very seriously, I never really have. Maybe it’s because I met my husband at 17 and we’ve been blissfully together ever since… or that I’d rather buy chocolate for myself than for anyone else! Jason, one half of the mother/son team who manufacture Seatonfire Chocolate offered me a great … Continue reading

Coconut Watermelon Granita & a Giveaway

Let’s play a word association game. I say “TV chef”, you say??? Jamie Oliver. Err’day. I went through a phase where I’d have BBC cooking channel running all day. Didn’t matter who was on – Delia, Nigella, Rick, but the minute Jamie came on, that was it. Game over, it’s tv time! My favourite series … Continue reading

Chocolate Nut Butter Banana Blobs aka Monkey Poop

I’ve been banging on about Monkey Poop for a week now so I feel like I better get to the point. Fast! It’s like when we were kids, and someone asked for a bite of your food, and you teased them by pulling it away as they tried to bite it. Then, when they eventually got their teeth … Continue reading

10 Minute Icecream

I bowed to the marketing pressure and bought one of those groovy little icecream makers which makes (depending on where you live…) frozen paddle pops/ice lollies/icicles/popsicles in 10 minutes – help a foodie out here, what are they even called? I woke up with a sore throat this morning and thought a frozen smoothie would hit … Continue reading

PB & J Pancakes

Growing up we had a fabulously flamboyant Texan friend who was the epitome of Southern American cliché. His name was Uncle Hayseed (yep, that’s legit!) and he was never seen dressed in anything else other than denim jeans, crocodile leather cowboy boots, solid gold belt buckle bejewelled with real diamonds, rubies and sapphires, his crisp white … Continue reading

Dairy Free Custard

It’s a bit rainy and chilly here on the ‘Unshine Coast’  today so what better way to warm up than with some afternoon custard?! This is one of those embarrassingly easy recipes which makes me feel like a bit of a fraud since all I did was swap ingredients out from the “Every Day Cookbook” … Continue reading

Grain Free Doughnuts

  I stumbled upon the original version of this recipe on my news feed the other day. Stumbled is too soft a word, it more like slapped me in the face, in a good way! I tried making some donuts over Chanukkah but even I would say that it was not a raging success… so … Continue reading

Double Layered Raw Chocolate Fudge (nut-free)

I posted this photo on my personal facebook and Instagram last night and it caused quite the furor! I’d go so far as to say, it ‘went viral’. Ok not quite but I had everyone begging me for the recipe, so here it is 🙂 I take no responsibility for the over consumption of said … Continue reading

Coco-nutty pancake stacks

Here’s a winning Hot Pink Chilli original recipe which prompted a wide-eyed “Please can I have some more?!” from my notoriously fussy Miss 3. Mom: 1 Fusspot: 0 Get your pancake on… 1/4 C Coconut Flour 4 Eggs 1 Tbsp Nut butter (I used ABC – almond, brazil, cashew) 1/4 C coconut milk pinch salt … Continue reading
