Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

There’s no doubt it’s winter, Sydney.  The weather is dry and so cold, and yesterday was the worst.  Not only was it cold and windy in the afternoon, but it also just had to rain.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the rain and prefer it over sunshine, but my goodness, it was so cold. …

Extra Virgin Olive Oil Brownies With Fresh Cherries & Dark Chocolate Chunks

So what’s been happening at Sweetest Kitchen HQ lately?  Well, to make a long story very short, my daughter turned 9 and she received a cat for her birthday.  This was a decision I was against from the beginning, as soon as my husband mentioned that it might happen.  I have nothing against pets, nothing…

Yoghurt Week: Macaroni & Cheese

When I placed all those tubs of Chobani yoghurt (see previous post) in my refrigerator, I didn’t expect anyone else to be eating them but myself.  But I was surprised to find a tub missing the next day.

Banana Cake With Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

I’ve had a real thing for banana breads and cakes lately.  In fact, I just now took a loaf of banana bread out of the oven before I sat down to write this post about banana cake.  Bananas have been abundant in our kitchen, leading to some quite ripe bananas here and there.  I’m not…

Adriano Zumbo’s Box Mixes Review

A lot of you may not know who Adriano Zumbo is; he’s a very famous patissier here in Sydney.  He’s been featured on MasterChef Australia where contestants had to bake and prepare his wild desserts

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Before I begin this post, I just want to apologize for the lack of updates in recent weeks.  We have been having a stressful time at home and even went through the process of changing schools for my daughter, which consumed heaps of time and energy.

Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone had a scary (and safe) Halloween this year!  Halloween isn’t very popular in Australia (although more and more Aussies seem to be celebrating in recent years), but that doesn’t mean you won’t see Halloween stuff in the shops
