Nectarine, Almond and Honey Cheesecake

Join us This delicious recipe comes from the brand new issues of The 4 Blades Magazine - The Fresh Produce Issue. I absolutely love cheesecake and I especially love cheesecake when it is the warmer months and using delicious summer fruits. This cheesecake is so incredibly simple to whip up that it has quickly become a regular in my house. You can change the fruit used based on what is on special or what is available. Summer berries such as raspberries, strawberries and blueberries are delicious! Sliced mango and passionfruit is another great combo! Photo courtesy of The 4 Blades Magazine photography team.

Chocolate Hommus

Join us This may be my new favourite snack! Delicious chocolately goodness with a secret ingredient - chickpeas! Even kidney beans work a treat! Who would have thought. This is a great party food or slightly healthier dessert. I use 70%+ dark chocolate for this recipe. If you do not like dark chocolate you can use milk chocolate. The dark will give it a much stronger chocolate flavour so just keep that in mind. It is best consumed straight away. You can refrigerate it but it will firm up so you will need to add a little milk and give it another mix. This can be made as firm or [...]

Condensed Milk Biscuits

Join us Does anyone else have 265 cans of condensed milk in their cupboard? I have no idea how I started a condensed milk family but I have (actually I blame my Lazy Caramel Slice recipe!!). They are all there staring at me every time I open the pantry. I hate to break up the family but I need to start using some. Friends and family are about to be inundated with food gifts! These biscuits are a great way to use up a tin and make a large batch of delicious biscuits. There are lots of simialr recipes around the internet that add an egg or 1+ cup of [...]

Caramelised Onion Dip

Join us I absolutely love dip! Nothing  beats a dip and cheese night with friends but Im struggling to find good store bought dips these days. I tend to make most of our dips with the help of the Thermomix. Making it yourself takes no time at all, often cheaper and you know exactly what is in it. Win, win, win. This is my Caramelised Onion Dip which is a delicious variation of my Bacon and Onion Dip. It a nice twist on traditional french onion dip that I know so many of us love. My other dip recipes: Bacon and Onion Dip Roasted Capsicum Dip Cheese and Bacon Cobb [...]
