Crazy coffee-chain creations, and coffee at all for that matter, chai from powders, sticky sweet flavoured lattes - they just aren't for me. A clean straight-up green chai, a pure and floral white, even an occasional peppermint - that is much more my cup of tea, pardon the pun. But this? This is the goodness of chai spices and the decadence of pumpkin all wrapped up in a creamy warm mug of magic for Tea Time Tuesday. I probably could should have called it a Pumpkin Pie Latte... Now if … [Read more...]

A pie filling as luscious and decadent as Raw Banana Cream Pie needed an equally special crust. Dates are nature's caramel after all so it isn't too far a leap to see the dates + sea salt = salted caramel connection. How's that for a raw replacement fix? Add in buttery macadamias and a few other secret ingredients and we have a pie crust made in heaven. Don't forget to pop over to the Raw Vegan Macadamia & Coconut Banana Cream Pie post to check out the rest of the creations in the … [Read more...]
The first rule of gatherings is 'always promise food', even better if you are promising cake. You know it's true - book clubs, catch-ups, training sessions and even dreaded Friday afternoon meetings are made better with the anticipation of treats. However once your audience is there what do you do with them? The casual catch up is an easy one, get out the food early, brew the tea and simply kick-back with friends, but when there is a agenda things need to be approached a bit … [Read more...]
I've gone all mad-scientist-ish on you again. Not with fruits or veggies or nuts this time around, but instead with an aim to re-create one of my favourite ever icings without processed cow cheese or refined sugar. When it comes to dessert I'd be hard pressed to name a favourite. Mom's Sour Cream Chocolate Cake with ridiculously fudge-y Chocolate Icing does hold a special place in my heart and a stunning Lemon Meringue or Pumpkin Pie can completely silence me for the length of time it takes … [Read more...]
What a year 2012 has been - although I'm not quite sure where its gone, wasn't it March just a few days ago...? Anyway, I just wanted to take a quick moment and thank you for all of your support this past year. Thank you for stopping by and reading, for commenting, for sharing. I never thought when I started this little corner of the Internets that it would turn into such a big part of my life! So first a few of your favourite recipes - based on views, and a few of my favourite recipes - … [Read more...]
A white Christmas. As hard as mother nature tried this year, all she could do was rain on Sydney, not a single snow flake in sight. Not particularly surprising - but it's ok, because this time around I've taken it on myself to create my own white Christmas. Inspired by an image and a conversation seen on sesameellis's Instagram recently I was determined to get a big'ol fake white tree this year. But it was only days before Christmas once I made up my mind, and it was all just too hard, so I … [Read more...]
I've mentioned it before, recipe ideas come to me from all sorts of places. Sometimes it's a meal, or a supermarket product or even a movie that sparks a new creation, but other times it's as simple as a 'have you tried...?' inquiry or an 'I wish I could figure out how to...' request. A month or so ago a reader named Elisa P emailed saying she loved my Chocolate Quinoa Pie Crust but was wondering if I had ever tried one without the cocoa. I had considered the same thing myself, but this was … [Read more...]
