Cheesy Pesto Scrolls

By |2019-04-15T22:00:52+10:00April 15th, 2019|Categories: Bread, Lunch and Dinner, Lunchbox, Savouries|0 Comments

I LOVE scrolls. When I first starting blogging I posted a recipe for scrolls which is still one of the most popular recipes on the blog. People love a good scroll. Whilst they take a bit of time and patience they are so worth it. You won't buy from a bakery again!  For years we were very basic and repetitive with our scrolls. They were either cheese and vegemite or a pizza type scroll with tomato paste, herbs, capsicum, ham/bacon, [...]

Festive Mars Bar Slice

I am a massive fan of Mars Bar Slice. It always reminds me of childhood. I think it was a staple at all kids parties in the 90s here in Australia. This is my super easy festive spin on it. My son took this batch to school today for the class party. Not healthy in the slightest but a massive hit!  Note to self: Take a better photo of this one.

Well it wouldn't be Christmas without gingerbread and I realised I didn't have a gingerbread recipe on the blog. Eek! Time to fix that. I can't take credit for this idea. My mother in law suggested it to me and I got creating. The actual gingerbread recipe is based off of the one I wrote for The Christmas Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine with a few little changes over the years.  I didn't realise how well gingerbread cookies and [...]

Festive Rudolph Biscuits

By |2018-12-12T19:37:52+10:00December 12th, 2018|Categories: Christmas, Sweets|0 Comments

So on Monday night I posted my first recipe in a while - my Festive Reindeer Donuts. These were really well received but I got a bunch of messages asking what to do if you don't have a donut machine or tin. Store-bought is perfectly ok and as mentioned in the post, cupcakes and muffins work just as well too.  But it got me thinking - a biscuit is just as easy and cute so thought I would whip up [...]
