We tend to lean more to the Chocolate Babka and find Shiran’s recipe from Pretty.Simple.Sweet to be one of the yummiest!h

Fusilli alla Vodka with Basil and Parmesan

This is one of my favourite pasta dishes, I always make more than enough for lunch the next day. It’s my understanding that this version of the recipe posted on bon appètit is close to the original, on it’s own it really is yum, but as always I like to make my own adjustments. However, left as is it makes for a delicious ...

Waffles with Banana and Rum Caramel Sauce

This is a deliciously sweet breakfast treat, it makes for the perfect weekend breakfast. When time permits we like to make our own waffles as well, store bought waffles just don’t taste as good as their homemade counterparts (see “Our Alterations”). The origin of this recipe is left to be debated, but we found this beautiful version at Australian Good ...

Bread & Butter

Bread & Butter |Fresh Baked Bread

There is no food I love more than bread and butter! Now, don't get me wrong, I am most definitely NOT talking about wonder bread and margarine, that's nasty! I'm talking about a really delicious, freshly baked bread such as, organic baguette or ciabatta, with a nice expensive butter like Lurpax or truffle butter, that is ecstasy! My first impression of a good restaurant is what bread and butter/oil they give you when you order your drinks, obviously the nicer the restaurant, the nicer the bread and butter.

What I love most about Mexican food is the variety of nutrients indulged in one meal. Beans for protein, rice, natural corn chips or quinoa for essential carbohydrates, avocado, cashews and olive oil for healthy fats and of course, a substantial amount of fresh vegetables for all your vitamins.
