Homemade Tomato Sauce Recipe

Okay, before I forget, I have to document this sauce. Originally invented by A’s grandmother, it was perfected by his step-dad to the version which exists today. Believe me when I say this sauce will beat ANYTHING you can buy on a shelf. Sure, it’s tedious and time-consuming, …

Sweet and Sour Chicken Drumstick Recipes

Mom ended up having a tiny dinner party tonight with a few of her friends, in celebration of Mother’s Day and their mothers all being in South Korea or having passed on. Now, whilst I love nearly all of my mother’s cooking, some dishes are a bit of …

Apple Tea Cake Recipe

This is a apple tea cake recipe for Suzi, a friend from work, who told me that she had some apples that needed using up! Suz, the apple pie recipe I posted below is almost no work at all (easy as pie? Wa-ha-ha-ha!), but in case that doesn’t …

Chocolate Hazelnut Cake Recipe

This cake is delightful – light, airy, nutty and the cream is lovely and sweet without tasting too rich. It’s starts with a meringue mix, and needs a lot of care so it’s not a cake for a quick night fix but more for an afternoon tea or …

Delicious Lemon Tart Recipe

Whilst I was munching on cookies with my sister, she mentioned that her favourite baked good when was out for coffee with friends was lemon tarts. Here I break from the story to make a note that Melbourne is based on a coffee culture. There are cafes on …
