Recipe: Lime Slice

A colleague at work brought in a giant bag of limes recently, so I took home as many as I could carry and then pondered over what to make with them. I decided I should return them full circle, so made this lime slice that I then took in to work to share with my colleagues. Circle of life complete! Don’t be fooled by the fact the limes are yellow on the outside (and therefore the zest is yellow!), the insides were nice and green and had that delicious lime tang. In saying that, this slice would work just as well with lemons, or a combination of the the two!

Recipe: Puffed Rice Bars

I am always looking for new ideas for snacks I can take with me to work to help fuel my day. I bought some puffed rice a few weeks back with no real idea what I was going to use it for, so decided to make some bars filled with all kinds of delicious extras. They turned out really well and I have been happily munching my way through them ever since! I used quite a few different ingredients in mine, but only because I already had them all in my cupboard – feel free to use whatever you have on hand!

Recipe: White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies

In a world of fancy, dainty desserts and perfectly shaped macarons I think there’s something satisfying about a chunky, lopsided cookie. These are almost impossible to get wrong and can be as big or small as you like – they can even be more uniform in shape and size if that’s your style (clearly it’s not mine!). The combination of white chocolate and macadamia might not be earth shatteringly new, but it’s a classic for a reason. The mix of sweet white chocolate and a salty hit of macadamia is pretty perfect, and you can whip these up in under half an hour – perfect for that mid morning snack!

Recipe: Apple-Berry Crumble Muffins

There’s something about adding a crumble top to muffins that makes them that much more delicious. The combination of soft, fluffy muffin and a crunchy top turns these simple muffins into something worth serving to friends for morning tea (if they last that long!). The best part is the crumble top is super simple so there’s no reason you couldn’t use it as on top of all your muffins! Unless of course you ate so much you got sick of it, that would be terrible! Maybe moderation is the key…

Recipe: Apple Slice

I found myself with a pile of apples at home so decided I should turn them into something to share with my housemates. I ummed and ahhed for a while and eventually decided to make a batch of apple slice. I kept it light on the sugar front so the fruity flavour of the apple could be the star of the show, with the light pastry happily holding it all together. Despite the fact I’m not very confident with pastry (so I keep avoiding making it, thus remaining not confident making it!) this turned out really nicely and was a simple, delicious way to use a pile of apples.
