Pistachio Lemon Cake

This utterly delicious Pistachio Lemon Cake is an updated lemon variation of the Orange Pistachio Cake I posted back in 2014. The reason for the update is twofold. The images for the 2014 recipe are a bit embarrassing and I was given some beautiful pistachios by a friend who imports them to South Africa from Iran. I loved hearing a bit more about pistachios, the king of nuts. The English name pistachio is derived from “Pisteh”, which is a Persian name…

Pistachio Labneh Ice Cream

No matter how much I try to plan what goes on this blog I go completely off the plan when I see a recipe I just have to make and share. This Pistachio Labneh Ice Cream is one of them. It also gave me a reason to finally style a photo with the gold teaspoons I got in Dubai last month. Word of advice though, don’t check the exchange rate after you buy something.

I had to stop photographing this Orange Pistachio Cake as I could not stop eating slice after slice. And just a tip, the first and last slices with the crust are the best.

Her sense of humour always brings a smile and she regularly…

Most retailers now sell some version of dukkah but it is so incredibly easy to make at home and the fragrance when making it is pretty special. No longer just a dip with bread, you can sprinkle dukkah over roast vegetables, fish, lamb or even some steamed rice. This pistachio version is…

I am a huge fan of the Great British Bake Off. It is by far my favourite cooking contest show and I am always in awe of what the contestants create while wishing I can bake as well as they do. So in a sense this is my Showstopper post of the year as I wanted the last post of 2013 to be truly special and celebratory. This cake will be fitting for any New Year’s Eve celebration or a…

These tartlets are so quick and easy to make but do need a few tricks to make them really good. They have to be eaten straight out of the oven, have to be served with vanilla ice cream and definitely need crunch. If you do not have time to make the praline, topping the tartlets with roughly chopped nuts will be a good alternative but the praline does take it to a whole new level.
