Blueberry Muffins

I  love muffins, but I rarely make them. I am quite new to gluten free baking and haven´t found the perfect gluten free flour that I like to use. Until now!

Dried Fruit Compote

Growing up in South Africa it seemed like prunes just magically appeared around Passover time. I could never understand why. I mean they were thrown into Tzimmes and stewed to be eaten as dessert.

Frosting: White Chocolate Buttercream

To give the traditional frosting a bit of a twist I decided to try the White Chocolate Buttercream frosting, and here’s how I did it…

Frosting: Chocolate Buttercream

I’m convinced this chocolate buttercream frosting tastes exactly like the frosting which tops the little Woolworths chocolate cupcakes.

Frosting: Cream Cheese

As mentioned in my Red Velvet Cupcakes post, cream cheese frosting just simply perfects the taste and provides the perfect balance to the richness (if that’s a word) of the cupcake.

If you haven’t attempted Swiss Meringue Buttercream, let me tell you, it is silky smooth and really melts in your mouth making it perfect for cupcakes, cakes and even cookies

Cheesy Sweet Savoury

This recipe was shared to me by my aunty, and I think its a great, quick, light dish to make. It fills up the table, it can be a great dish to nibble on, and has a Middle Eastern feel to it.

Jardo/Sweet Rice

I made this dish known as Jardo or sweet rice garnished with almonds, pistachios and edible roses. This dish is rich, sweet and very flavorful. You don’t have to make for lunch only it’s serves perfectly for a sweet snack or dessert.

Sweet & Sour Chicken

This one was of those “make up as I go along” recipes. I knew what I wanted to eat and had an idea of the flavour combo so I bought a pineapple and threw some things together and came up with this.

Gluten Free Donuts

Whilst the recipe is not entirely vegan, nor is it completely sugar free… it has been altered perfectly for you to enjoy somewhat guiltlessly with a hot cuppa Joe, tea or cocoa as you usher in another wintery weekend!
