Note: the crystallization of the sugar does something positively weird when making this pie, but rest assured, the flavor remains unweirded throughout the process.

If you’ve got a cravin’ to stuff some nuts in your mouth, please do try the pecan kind, preferably packed in this pie we made. It’s delish!

Mango Tart with Sweet Red Chilli Syrup

Yes, this recipe starts with a fair warning, and no, it’s not what you’d expect. ! You have to eat this pie FRESH, because if you don’t, it gets as soggy as a pair of sweaty socks and looks equally appetizing!

Crumbling Date?

This is what happens when hubby buys two kilograms (thats about 4 pounds) of dates. Even though dates are dates, they can still go out of date, and four pounds worth is a bit much to process without an action plan.

Pear-ly keeping it together

Holiday week is upon us! The end of year drives us in herds to our families, and I thought it high time to pay a visit to the online family too.

I come bearing pears!

Mushroom Burgers

And so we crawl out of the hole we have been in the last few months. However, our trip was bountiful and we come bearing gifts.

Almond Raspberry Pie

I'm more of a cake than a pie person. Loads of whipped cream and/or custard don't really do it for me. I'd rather have simple pie, with a bit of jam for instance, or this pie right here! I think I might just prefer this pie now, all the time and forever. You'll need to forgive me for any pie-related smudges.

Diabolical pizza

Now we're down with the basics (dough and sauce), it's time to make an actual pizza! For us, this one's a classic. Around these parts it's called pizza diabolique.

Tomato sauce for pizza

As critical as your crust is, your sauce is even more salient. Good pizza stands or falls with it’s condiments. I didn’t realise this until I found salsa that was good enough.

Pizza Dough

Lots of people coming over? Not feeling like feeding the horde if that means you’re worthless the rest of the evening? Then pizza will surely help you out.

Spinach Feta Quiche

I used to be a real carnivore. If a meal didn't have at least some meat in it, I had the feeling I'd eaten nothing but air. But things can change, and today I like to dabble in the forgotten dark arts now and again. Eating vegetarian is healthy and ecologically friendly.

Cherry Almond Cake

February first is Frank’s birthday. I had promised to make him something of his choice he could bring his friends at work. I predicted the combination of almonds and cherries in this contestant would win him over. I was right.
