“Be My Valentine” Coconut Rough Chocolates …

Be My Valentine Coconut Rough Chocolates 001

  Golden Rough chocolates by Nestle always take me back to my childhood. I was born in Sydney but moved to Evans Heads in northern New South Wales in my primary school years, living there for around 4 years. For those who don’t know Evans Heads, it was a sleepy seaside town that came to life every holidays as the caravan park overflowed with visitors from all over the place looking for an idyllic summer of swimming, sand and sun. It was a great place to grow up and I have wonderful, fond memories of living there. One of my favourite memories is walking home from … read more

Slow Cooker Chocolate Christmas Pudding …

Slow Cooker Chocolate Christmas Pudding

  As long as I can remember, our family has always served a traditional Christmas Pudding on Christmas Day. It’s such a tradition that we even get together, about 6 weeks before Christmas, to make our puddings in cloths using a fourth-generation recipe that our kids are now learning. After the puddings are prepared and cooked, they’re hung in the garage so the flavour can really develop, you can read more about that here.   Sadly though, the traditional Christmas Pudding doesn’t appeal to everyone and most kids will usually turn their noses up when it’s served. … read more

Mars Bar Slice …

Mars Bar Slice 001

  I have a terrible sweet tooth that I regularly do battle with and probably the sugary treat that will tempt me most is chocolate.  I totally lack willpower when I'm around chocolate.  I, therefore, figured out long ago that total deprivation would never work and so, rather than totally denying myself chocolate, I instead work on controlling the amount I eat.  It's been a fairly successful approach, so my tip when making treats like this delicious Mars Bar Slice is to reserve it for special occasions only like birthday parties or family get-togethers and to then cut … read more
