Postre Chajá
A friend recently asked me to bake a cake for some friends from Uruguay, suggesting Postre Chajá. From what I gather, it's quite a popular dessert in Uruguay. My version of Postre Chajá is made of layers with chiffon, peaches, whipped cream frosting and finished with meringue. It's very light and the cake layers are just so soft. This would...
meatballs and tzatziki with lemon rice pilaf, greek inspired
Tzatziki! I  was thinking of Greek flavours today, but I wanted to try something simple. The fresh taste of tzatziki sauce with the salty feta cheese came to mind. I also thought of making meatballs, not only because they are easy to make, but also quick to stock in the freezer for use at a later date. The best part is,...

Using the same brownie base minus the custard, top it with this cheesecake recipe. Now you have an amazing cheesecake brownie recipe! I'll include  the brownie recipe in this...
French Toast with Blueberry Compote recipes
Happy weekend! Well, whatever's left of the weekend that is. Nothing says the weekend quite like a good French toast made with homemade brioche loaf. For this version of French toast, I substituted heavy cream or milk with coconut milk. I thought the brioche might be rich enough with all the butter that's been added to it, so I made blueberry...

Rubber Ducky Cake Cake Post
Today, I would just like to share a cake I made for a baby shower. I love how it turned out, and I had so much fun making it! I was going to post a Frittata recipe today but, this trumps that. For now, please allow me to share this cake creation with you. Cheers!
Everyone knows that oatmeal is healthy, but this cookie might just have negated its goodness. Seriously. But, we shouldn't feel guilty just for having a few cookies every now and then. After all, we're not having the whole batch in one sitting, are we? To tell you the truth though, I almost went Cookie Monster...
Making Patties, Empanadas and Jamaican Patties
Last week, I got a little bit patty crazy! I prepared empanadas and Jamaican patties. The initial plan was to make a nice Pecan pie. The pie turned out rather nicely, but sadly, it didn't quite make it to the photo shoot. Fortunately, I had another disk of dough left. Rather than feel guilty about making (and eating) another dessert pie, I thought...
