This is hands down one of my most favourite recipe developments of all time.  It took me numerous attempts to get this recipe just right, more so for the dough than anything else. Well, after all the blood, sweat and tears (maybe not blood, but do oven burns count?) here it FINALLY is.  The ULTIMATE eliopitakia recipe (and I don’t say that lightly).  Reminiscent of Cyprus ? Yep.  Fragrant and delicious?  Indeed.  Moreish?  You...

Not so trick question: what’s better than a bouquet of flowers that will eventually die on you?  A bouquet of peach roses nestling in a frangipane tart that will end up in your satisfied tummy.  Cha ching!

This was inspired for Valentine’s day because as I mentioned before, the hubby doesn’t appreciate flowers, he appreciates dessert. And naturally I can assist him with showing the appreciation, everyone’s a winner.

This is...

Some mates were due a visit and for the life of me, I simply couldn’t decide whether to make a cheesecake or a tart.  Well to hell with it, I’m making both! Scrumptious hybrid baking alert.

It’s a bright day outside so I’m thinking bright colo...

Believe it or not, aside from all the baking, I’m actually a healthy eater.  Frozen berries have become my heroes and go to breakfast ingredient.  They’re delicious, convenient and affordable.

I got carried away the other week during a food shop and bought a few too many packs of frozen berries.  My freezer was suffocating and I was struggling to eat them all to be honest.  Enter deep dish mixed berry pie.  The saviour of...

This week I’ve channelled my inner Greek Goddess and whipped up something true to my heritage.  Yes, it’s the world known, ever so popular, ever so scrumptious Spanakopitta aka Spinach Pie.  Spinach, tick. Feta, tick.  Aromatic fresh herbs, tick.  Crunchy filo pastry, tick. Have I won you over yet?

This is a great recipe I've stumbled across on the internet, but I’ve adapted it to my own personal preference.  Fee...
