Fabulous Foodie Fridays #66

By the time this post goes live tonight I’ll be on my way home from the airport, having spent the day filming in Sydney for a free eCourse that Kidspot is running for bloggers. Just quietly, I am absolutely petrified! I have never been into a TV studio before (although I must say that I’m very much looking forward to having my hair and makeup done!) and by now I’m sure you know I’m not the worlds greatest traveller. Anyway, I’ve been trying to put myself outside my comfort zone lately and ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’… blah blah blah. So here’s hoping that it all went well, I survived and am coming home to a much deserved cupcake (and my PJs). What’s been happening with you this week? All the fun, fabulous stuff I hope!!

Ok, so last week I saw this Totally Summery Eton Mess Cake from Super Golden Bakes and fell in love. So darn pretty!!!

Tall layered mixed berry eton mess cake with strawberries, rasperries and blueberries on a pretty flower patterned background

And then when I thought things couldn’t get any better, I came across a recipe for one of my favourite naughty breakfasts in the whole entire world. Yep, this Almond Toast from The Dessert Spoon is AMAZING.

I love Banoffee Tarts and VegeTARAian has made them oh-so-easy in this clever little recipe.

How To Make A Really Easy Butterscotch Sauce

A good old butterscotch sauce is just one of those things that you need in your life. It’s the perfect thing for drizzling over desserts, pouring over the top of ice cream… or maybe just eating a sneaky teaspoon or two on it’s own. This Easy Butterscotch Sauce has only 4 ingredients (or 5 if…

Caramel brownies

Nutella & Jersey Caramel Brownies

I would never swear on Bake Play Smile – it’s far too G-rated for that! BUT if you can imagine a swear jar, then also imagine me filling it up with coins as I describe how amazing these Nutella & Jersey Caramel Brownies are. It’s the best way I can think to explain how good they…

Two Simple Ways I Incresased My Email Subscribers copy

The Very Best Baking Tips from Kick-Ass Home Cooks

As you probably know by now, I have absolutely no formal training in cooking or baking. I am not a chef. I have not trained as a baker. And apart from the occasional cooking class, everything I know about cooking, I learnt from my Mum (and a whole lot of practice – and mistakes!!). I…

Classic Beef Sausage Rolls

Classic Beef Sausage Rolls

I have such a sausage roll obsession going on at the moment. I’m blaming the chilly weather. Or the fact that puff pastry and mince go really, really well together. Or just that there’s something totally awesome about a homemade sausage roll squirted with tomato sauce. Whatever it is, there’s no doubting that sausage rolls are…

Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes

A few weeks ago, it was mine and Dave’s 12 year anniversary. We certainly haven’t been married for 12 years – but it’s been that long since we met and started dating. Anyway, we had sort of planned to go away for the weekend and then everything just got crazy busy and we left it…
