Baked Fig and chocolate marbled cheesecake

Acacia’s 4th birthday party is next Saturday.  I need to be vaguely organised and have discovered that baked cheesecakes freeze very well.  Just as well I decided to make it a week early.  Arrggghhh I made a mistake, my first cheesecake cracked, I searched for reasons on this page which has a selection of tips to prevent cracking and realised ...

Custard Slices with Cream Crackers

I’m typing my recipe on here because recently I lost it for a few months (all my recipes are on index cards and I have been known to mislay them).  This recipe was given to me by a work colleague Dorene about 10 years ago and it is a big hit in my home.  They are easy to make and ... Read More »

Eggless Cinnamon cake or cupcakes

3-year-old Acacia can have very specific ideas about what she wants, it’s not often that I manage to pull off what she has in mind.  Yesterday she nagged and nagged to make a cake but the list of requirements needed some thought.  She did not want cup cakes, it had to be 1 round cake, it had to have cinnamon, ...

Mushroom-Cottage Cheese Spread

I can bake pretty much any sweet thing your heart desires but when it comes to savory snacks I find myself at a loss.  I had to bring a plate of savory snacks for a church funeral today. I had a recipe but veered so far from it that I sort of made up my own and I am well ... Read More »
