Rum & Tonka Bean Dark Chocolate Truffles

When Nespresso sent me a parcel full of gourmet ingredients last month to celebrate the launch of Cubania, I didn’t think I’d have any trouble dreaming up recipes to use them in.  I presented you with the rum and espresso cloud cake, but after that, life got in the way and the blog went on…

A Morning of Coffee and Good Food

Last month I was invited by Nespresso to The Stables at Royal Randwick Racecourse for a very special occasion. Nespresso was set to release a new Special Reserve Limited Edition Grand Cru and I, along with a number of other guests, were one of the lucky firsts to experience it. Not only would we get…

Espresso & Rum Chocolate Cloud Cake With Tonka Bean Whipped Cream

Hello!  Yes, it’s been over one whole month since my last post, but I have been busy concocting delicious things.  Nespresso has once again sent me a lovely parcel full of the most gorgeous ingredients to inspire new recipes.  We are celebrating Nespresso’s limited edition Cubania, which boasts the highest intensity level Grand Cru yet.

Cinnamon French Toast With Citrus Butter

Have you ever given someone a gift that made them so happy that they cried?  My dad and I have.  It’s a wonderful feeling to make someone so happy.


Spiced White Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

Believe it or not, it’s Christmas time again!  That means it’s time to start planning your Christmas baking.  There are so many Christmassy recipes out there that you may be having trouble trying to decide what to bake.

Yoghurt Week: Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie

Here we are, at the end of yoghurt week already.  That really flew by, but I hope you’ve discovered a new recipe or two along the way.

Yoghurt Week: Mashed Potatoes

Today’s recipe featuring yoghurt is mashed potatoes.  I have a long-term relationship with mashed potatoes; I have always loved this simple and classic side dish.

Today’s yoghurt recipe is another one you can feel good about eating on a hot summer day – mango popsicles!  With the freshest and best-quality ingredients, these will go down a treat with everyone.

Yoghurt Week: Cold Chobani-Sesame Noodles

Yoghurt week is coming along nicely, don’t you think?  This is day number four and I’ve got a good dish for summer to share.  I was reluctant to cook the recipe, however, because of my experience with whole wheat spaghetti in the past; it seems to stay more firm than I prefer my pasta to…

Yoghurt Week: Mint Chocolate Chip Frozen Greek Yoghurt

Welcome back, yoghurt fans!  I hope you’ve been enjoying Yoghurt Week so far.  Today’s recipe is one I found while searching for ideas on how else to use Greek yoghurt.

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.


Yoghurt Week: Banana Bread

Hello, and welcome to yoghurt week at the Sweetest Kitchen!  What does this mean?  It means that I’m going to be posting a recipe featuring yoghurt each day this week.  If you love yoghurt and incorporating it into your baking and cooking, then this is the place you want to be.


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…
