Double Chocolate Cheesecake with fresh strawberry sauce and creamy chocolate drizzle

This double chocolate cheesecake with fresh strawberry sauce is such a useful recipe to have. We all need to know desserts that are great for many occasions, such as Valentines day or for when families gather for the holidays. This tastes almost like a mousse cake but is creamier. This is food of the heavens,…

Healthy homemade chocolate, fruit and nut trail mix

I’ve started buying little packets of trail mix this year because I promised myself to only nibble on healthier snacks. I’ve been going through indecent amounts, so it’s high time for me to prepare some of my own homemade trail mix. You can play around with healthy ingredients, but keep in the chocolate.

Black Forest Cookie Cake

There is nothing that gets my families attention more than when I’m baking. A stack of cookies turned into a cookie tower certainly got their attention.

They are a perfect Autumn dessert. Rather simply toasting marshmallows (nice, but yawn) by the inescapable bonfire this season, it’s all got rather exciting.

Kirsch cherry and amaretti stracciatella gelato

It’s never the wrong time of year to enjoy gelato. Just a glimmer of that warming Autumn sun is enough for me to churn up a refreshing treat. I’m forever thinking up new ingredients to add together and have indulged the family with a few bizarre requests (which they have choffed down with glee –…

lemon curd cheesecake with lavender and white chocolate

This is possibly my favourite dessert creation yet. Definitely up there in my top 5. The smooth sweet creaminess of the topping with the tanginess of the lemon curd. Then you have the bite of the white chocolate on the crumbly buttery biscuit base and that elegant hint of lavender…
