Happy Australia Day! Or if you want to sound like a local, Happy 'Stralia Day Maate. You should probably go make Lamingtons or Pavlova or eat a meat pie to celebrate.

Well, it took me much longer than in past years but I've finally gotten my bake-on for Christmas.

You can also read more about … [Read more...]

Oh where do I begin on this one? Lets start with the official title - Chocolate Pavlova Deconstructed 4 Ways: Zabaglione & Cherries; Spiced Red Wine Poached Pears & Chocolate Pudding; Caramel Bananas & Coconut Cream; Yogurt & Berries. And then I died. A few weeks back I was chatting on Twitter with a some fellow Aussie Food Bloggers... next thing we knew the Great Australian Pavlova Blog Hop was born. Just a few days after that we re-badged as Sweet Adventures. Our first … [Read more...]
HEY, HEY YOU! I've recently updated this recipe over here -- you may want to pop over and use the new one instead! It's been refined over the past five years but I wanted to keep this one (instead of doing a 301 redirect for all you good blogger types) because I do think it's important to keep a record of where you've been. ~ JJ --------- I probably shouldn't start a pie crust post by telling you that I don't really like crust.
