Champagne Poached Rhubarb

We have a huge amount of rhubarb and my drink of choice is definitely sparkling, so it was only a matter of time until I combined the two. Seriously I cannot use enough rhubarb, our plants so far have produced year round, so there’s not even any need to stew and freeze. So I’ve hadContinue reading “Champagne Poached Rhubarb”

Seasonal Fruit Crumble

This weekend was a scorcher in Melbourne, over 40 degrees both Saturday and Sunday. Sunday morning I’d had enough of sitting inside hiding from the heat, so we ventured about 10 minutes up the road to our friends pool.

So when I found out that the Sweet Adventures Blog Hop, hosted by Claire at ClaireKCreations was Meringue Madness, I couldn’t pass upContinue reading “Inside out Lime Meringue Pie”

Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding

The rich aroma of cooking chocolate fills the kitchen, the timer trills and I open the oven door, letting a wave of hot air out.  Instantly my glasses have fogged over but I can smell the rich chocolate pudding. I push the spoon through the cake topping, scraping the toffeed chocolate crust from around theContinue reading “Chocolate Self-Saucing Pudding”
