    Friday Finds: Let's Talk Tea

    Let's talk tea. I could talk for hours about tea. In fact I'm more than a little obsessed about it. So much so my husband jokes that I have a tea shop in my pantry as I've amassed a rather large collection, but like shoes and chocolate, I believe you can never have too much tea! Today I wa[...]

    Roasted Moroccan Carrot Salad with chickpeas

    During the long, hot and sticky days of  summer, I crave something cold, yet substantial to eat. Salads are what I turn to, but not the bland iceberg lettuce, tomato and cucumber salads I grew up eating. I want salads that are interesting, flavourful and satisfying enough that they become a meal[...]

    Maple Cinnamon Granola

    I grew up in a family of breakfast eaters. Like my Mum, as soon as I am awake I am starving and need to fuel my body for the start of the day. My husband on the other hand rarely eats breakfast - I don't count his morning heart starter coffee as breakfast. The exception is if we go out for break[...]

    Deep, dark, rich and sexy Vegan chocolate cake

    I couldn't imagine a world without chocolate. I go through phases, with certain foods becoming a favourite for short periods of time. Those favourites, and phases, pass though, and I soon move onto the next thing. The one constant however is chocolate. Right from the first time I tasted choco[...]

    Delicieux is now Delicious Everyday!

    As each new year comes around many of us spend times evaluating our lives and/or making resolutions for the year ahead. For me one of those resolutions was to finally bite the bullet and rebrand Delicieux. Delicieux had been a big part of my life for 6 years, but for the last year, at least, [...]

    Top 10 recipes of 2013

    As 2013 draws to a close I find myself reflecting on the year that's gone by.  Thinking and reflecting is something I've been doing a lot of recently, especially given the fact that the last 5 weeks, thanks to this horrible virus, I've not been up to much more than that. Despite being sick, it's [...]

    Caramelised White Chocolate Cupcakes with Roasted Strawberry Buttercream

    I admit, the thought of putting white chocolate in the oven to roast sounds insane. But it's an insane stroke of genius because it completely transforms white chocolate into something wonderful. Gone is the cloying sweetness usually associated with white chocolate, and in it's place is the most[...]

    Zucchini cannelloni - vegetarian and pasta free

    After a whirlwind couple of days by the beach (more about that later) it was back to reality last week, and a cold snap in Brisbane. As I type this I'm intermittently warming my hands on a cup of tea, because I don't deal well with the cold. It seems I really have acclimatised to living in B[...]

    Chocolate Macarons with dark chocolate ganache

    Macarons. The mere mention can instil fear in many a baker, myself included. I attempted to make macarons once before, and it was an unmitigated disaster. Every single one cracked. And while I vowed not to let the disappointment get me down, and to make them again, it was another year before I d[...]

    Chocolate Roulade with Burnt Sugar Italian Meringue Buttercream

    Sometimes accidents are happy accidents. And such was the case when I burnt the sugar for my Italian Meringue buttercream filling for my Chocolate Roulade. As the sugar slowly climbed to temperature I turned my attention away for a mere moment to begin beating the egg white, and when I turne[...]

    Heirloom Tomato Salad Recipe

    When I picked up some gorgeous heirloom tomatoes at my local greengrocer I knew immediately I wanted to make a Heirloom Tomato Salad with them. Some ingredients are best enjoyed simply, and this is certainly true of tomatoes in my opinion, especially heirloom tomatoes. Heirloom tomatoes lack a [...]

    Chai Shortbread Cookies

    As a regular reader of this blog you will know I have a sweet tooth. A sweet little something every now and again, quite simply, as far as I am concerned at least, adds to the enjoyment of life. But when it comes to choosing something sweet to eat, despite appearances to the contrary, I am selec[...]
