With Christmas just around the corner (eek!) I have been getting into the full swing of holiday baking. For me that involves lots of chocolate and lots of peppermint. 


This chocolate and peppermint slice is easy to make and is a great treat for yourself or for a nice homemade edible gift.

Christmas Cake

This year was the first year that I have attempted to bake my own Christmas cakes. They always just seemed so daunting to me, especially since I know how easily they can become completely dry. This recipe doesn't risk this at all. These cakes are deliciously moist and so easy to make, too.

Snickers {no bake} Cheesecake

It's been well over two months since my last cheesecake recipe (This makes me sound like Cheesecakes Anonymous!) so it's definitely past time for another! Luckily I just so happen to have this beautiful Snickers Cheesecake sitting here begging to be posted.

Steak and Egg Sandwich

During my short stay in Argentina, I noticed that they add scrambled egg to everything. Go anywhere selling food and you'll find french fries topped with egg, hot dogs with egg, grilled steak with egg... 

On a few occasions at a few different places I ordered a steak sandwich. Everyone knows Argentina for its steak so I had to make the most of it, right? On each occasion, the sandwich was also loaded full of scrambled egg. It tastes AMAZING!

Chocolate Orange Fudge

Chocolate and Orange is a classic flavor combination - one that is especially popular in the holiday season. Fudge makes a perfect homemade gift as well, it keeps very well and can be dressed up in cellophane or mason jars.

Chicken Tortellini Soup

Soup is just one of those things that I can't get enough of. I love coming up with new ways to enjoy soup. All year 'round too! I really don't stick to the "soup is for winter" rule.

Chocolate and Raspberry Calzones

Chocolate and Raspberry Calzones are a fun and delicious sweet twist on the Italian Calzone pizza. Hands up whose all for a dessert pizza?!


I absolutely adored this dessert. The calzones were easy to make, and once the pizza dough was made, quick too! The combination of ingredients makes this dessert a bit more pleasing to the waist line than my usual desserts - which I know a lot of you will love!

Lamb Kofta Pita Pockets with Quinoa Tabbouleh

Koftas are ground meat mixed with a few spices and shaped into balls or kebabs. They can be found in many different cuisines including Indian, Afghani, Pakistani, and Turkish. The Greek variation is a popular dish including chickpeas, usually fried and served with yogurt or tzatziki. They are simple to make and taste great. I've made the recipe a little more healthy by baking the koftas.
