A Slice of Heaven: Delicious and Easy Dessert Pizza

Dessert Pizza

Every now and again, a recipe comes along that is so perfect, such a heavenly combination of easy and delicious, that all you can do is sit back in wonder, and admire it…

No, I’m totally kidding – what you have to do is make it, then eat it! Like, right now!

Anyway, you probably see where I’m going here, but this recipe is exactly that kind of recipe. It takes five minutes, max, to prepare, and much much less time to eat! Continue reading

Moroccan fish with almond couscous and minted yoghurt

Moroccan Fish Recipe

This recipe (which was inspired by one from the Australian Women’s Weekly Quick & Fast book) has rapidly become one of my all time favourite dinners to make and eat. It is SO quick and SO easy and SO SO SO delicious! It’s the perfect meal to whip up on those nights when you don’t get home until late, and just aren’t feeling the whole cooking thing.

Choosing the Perfect Cheese Platter

I am definitely feeling the autumn blues this week. The leaves are changing colour, the days are getting shorter, and I am fighting the strong urge to crawl into bed and hibernate for three to four months. It isn’t even truly cold yet, but I as I write this blog, I am sitting on top of the heater with my uggs on.

That’s why today’s post is on something to warm the spirit – cheese. The most holey of foods (see what I did there?). I love cheese in all its forms. Its creamy comfort is second only to chocolate (and I’m sure we’ve all had our fair share of that over the last few weeks!).

Amazing Antipasti

Amazing AntipastiHappy Friday everyone! In honour of the weekend, I thought I would do a post about food, because Fat Friday.

This should come as a surprise to no one, but I love food. Love. The experience of eating good food is one of the things that I live for. It also brings me a huge amount of joy to cook for my friends and share a meal together – dinner parties are literally my favourite social activity.

A formal dinner party is a lot of work, and, more often than not, quite expensive. One of the tricks I have mastered is to pick a menu that can be 90% completed before the guests arrive, both to cut down on stress and, let’s face it, so that there’s time to clean up the huge mess you’ve made of the kitchen,  thereby keeping up that  Martha Stewart/Nigella Lawson/Domestic Goddess facade you’ve got going on.

Honey and Lime Glazed Christmas Ham

https://icandotht.com/2014/12/20/honey-and-lime-glazed-christmas-ham/

I know, I know, this blog is late. It’s Sunday. If I wish you a happy 8th day of Christmas, I will be lying. I don’t care though, I’m going to wish it anyway. Happy 8th day of Christmas!

I have a very good excuse for being late though – our recipe for today (yesterday) was something I made to take to my Mum’s Christmas party last night! It was a raging party and we didn’t get home until after 2am, so by then it was already too late…

Anyway, with the benefit of being able to see the ‘future’, I can honestly tell you that this ham was a HIT. The entire 5 and a half kilos of it was devoured in no time – I couldn’t believe it. A bunch of people asked for the recipe, and (although you should never admit this!) it was nice to be able to tell them how easy it was. Continue reading

Christmas Cookies

https://icandotht.com/2014/12/16/christmas-cookies/

Fourth day of Christmas, ahhhhh! Where is the time going?? It’s the most wonderful time of the year and it’s going by way too fast!

I wanted to share this recipe with you today because these cookies are the perfect thing to take along to a holiday party – they look impressive (which is why we do this, right?) and they taste DELICIOUS. They are soft and buttery, without being too heavy. I’ve never been a huge fan of shortbread, but these cookies have converted me. Continue reading
