We spent Good Friday at the in-laws, and on our way home on Saturday afternoon stopped at a couple of road-side fruit stores. At one of the fruit stores, they were selling feijoas by the kilo for about $3, feijoas are on of my favourite fruits, so as soon as I saw them, I had to buy a bag.
When I got home, I put them into a fruit bowls and then realised that I had a KILO feijoas, and I didn’t know what to do with them – Phillip doesn’t like them, and I wasn’t sure if I could eat a kilo before they went off (I could try I guess).
Luckily we also bought a couple of bags of apples at one of the stores, so I decided to make an apple and feijoa crumble. Continue reading →
I feel like a broken record saying this, but while we were in Toronto we checked out a bakery called Bunner’s. All the food they make is gluten free, vegan, and oh-so delicious (I feel that i need another adjective to describe food, one that I would use though, so for now, if food is seriously good, it’s delicious).

I had never had crème caramel, so when it was posted on the sorted website (have I mentioned how much I love those guys?) I had to give it a go.

I don’t think I can say this enough, but here it goes: I LOVE sorted food (their recipes are easy as hell and delicious as all fuck). When they uploaded their chocolate mousse video (one of my favourite desserts) I had to give it a try, so of course when my boyfriend came home from the supermarket on Saturday with chocolate, cream and a tray of eggs* that’s exactly what we did.
Anyway, I thought I’d share the recipe with you guys, because who doesn’t love mousse? Continue reading →
I’ve been in love with the incredibly delicious, yet oh so decadent peanut butter pie since I had some at Sweet Mother’s Kitchen a while ago (they also do a mean peanut butter shake, which I highly recommend), and I have been meaning to make one ever since (the SMK pie isn’t gluten-free*, and as far as I know the only café in Wellington that makes them). So, when I came across this recipe on A Beautiful Mess, I had to try it. Continue reading →
