Easiest Five Step Chocolate and Nut Bars

I got the recipe for these Easiest Five Step Chocolate and Nut Bars from my friend Katelyn Williams who blogs at The Kate Tin, one of South Africa’s most popular blogs. Katelyn is the queen of baking and all things sweet and unapologetically decadent. I recently had the pleasure to collaborate with Katelyn, Afrikoa Chocolate and Eden Weiss Videography on a video telling a short story about chocolate. It is called The Story of a Cake and you can watch it…

Marshmallows with Salted Lime Sugar

I made these Marshmallows with Salted Lime Sugar for a dinner party two weeks ago and from the feedback I got they were the hit of the evening, so I am very pleased to share the recipe here. They formed part of a “forest forage” I created in front of the guests as the dessert finale. We cleared the dining table and asked the guests to stand while serving them a Passion Fruit Champagne (last week’s recipe) as a palate cleansing…

Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches

When NetFlorist sends you doughnuts the logical thing to do is make Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches. Of course you can eat them as is but who would not love Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches? Ice cold, sweet, creamy, doughy pleasure all in one bite. I can’t believe it isn’t a “thing”.   Of course, the easiest way to all that pleasure is to use store bought ice cream but you can make this even more special with homemade ice cream. And…

Olive Oil Espresso Choc Chip Cookies

I just said that I find baking cookies more of a mission than what it is worth but it was impossible not to make these Olive Oil Espresso Choc Chip Cookies. I came across a photo for the recipe on Instagram and immediately made a note that I had to make Shellie Froidevaux’s recipe. And when Baleia asked me if I wanted to give a bottle of their Extra Virgin Olive Oil away, I knew this recipe was going to be perfect to announce…

Almond Butter Biscuit

For the life of me I can not remember where I saw these Flourless Almond Butter Cookies from Heartbeet Kitchen but I was immediately drawn to the idea of baking with almond butter and bonus that the recipe had very few other ingredients as well. I find the making and baking of cookies just too much of a mission at the best of times so hardly bake cookies. The whole process of making a dough, rolling it out, baking and decorating…

Passion Fruit Olive Oil Slices

I’d like to think that every recipe on this blog is good but once in a while something comes along which knocks it out of the park. And these Passion Fruit Olive Oil Slices knocks it out of the park completely. They are so good and impossible to resist. Rich, velvety passion fruit curd on a buttery shortbread.  Moreish on a whole other level! I spent quite a bit of time thinking of what recipe to make with olive oil…
