Festive White Chocolate Rocky Road …

Festive White Chocolate Rocky Road 001

  Many years ago, hubby employed a lady in the Accounts Department who, apart from being a wizz with numbers, was also quite at home in the kitchen. Knowing that we had three little angels at home with a weakness for chocolate (not to mention yours truly) the lady in question would regularly send home delicious batches of Rocky Road.

Not too concerned about her career prospects, their biggest issue was what would happen to … read more

Easy Peasy Pikelets 001

  Light, delicious, thick, fluffy pikelets … these certainly bring back memories from my childhood. Mum would usually make the pikelet batter before picking us up from school and then turn on the frypan to cook them as soon as we got home.   I very occasionally also make up a pikelet batter before I go to bed, cover it, refrigerate overnight and then serve it for breakfast with loads of fruit … it’s a nice weekend treat.   Raspberry jam and a little whipped cream are the perfect companion for pikelets but I try mostly to serve them with some lovely fresh berries … read more

So today I thought I’d share my Rum Ball recipe because I often whip up a couple of batches and the kids present them to their teachers at the end of the term, just a little gift to say thank you for a great year. What I usually do is buy a stack of Christmas mugs, bowls and dishes at the Boxing Day sales where you’ll pay as little as 50 cents for these things.
