Blueberry Coffee Cake

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Growing up in Oregon, there was a ‘candy patch’ on the way to town. The ‘candy patch’ was actually a blueberry patch…but apparently when I was growing up I referred to them as candy. I love blueberries. Having moved to Australia, I haven’t had fresh blueberries in about six years, because I have always visited … Continue reading

Andrew’s Herb Smoked Chicken & Veggies

Andrew’s Herb Smoked Chicken & Veggies

For the most part, I do most of the cooking. However, Andrew has some AWESOME dishes that he can whip up. It reminds me of Jenna’s man’s cedar plank salmon. They may not cook all the time, but when they do cook, it’s mouth-watering. The thing with Australians is that they love roast dinners (chicken, … Continue reading

Carrot Fries

Carrot Fries

The other week I was inspired by PionnerWoman’s recipe on a naked burger. For some reason, a big juicy BBQ burger salad sounded fabulous. One…MUST…have fries! But I wasn’t in the mood for greasy ole’ fries. We did contemplate going down to the local chicken shop and ordering a side of fries. Then I thought…what … Continue reading

Cherry Ripe Bars

Cherry Ripe Bars

I’ve lived in Australia for six years. I think that part of anyone’s adventure into a new country/culture is to discover their food…that being what types of candy is on offer. One of the first candy bars that I fell in love with in Oz, is what they call a Cherry Ripe. It’s basically like … Continue reading

A Lunchtime Salsa (& Kicked-Up Chicken)

Andrew was out mowing the lawn (I had been asking for over a month to get it mowed). I was in the kitchen whipping up these bars and then some more. We had STACKS of veggies in the fridge…and cilantro was staring at me. Thus, I decided to whip up a very tasty, colourful, and … Continue reading

Chocolate Cake Cherry Bars

Chocolate Cake Cherry Bars

What happens when you buy a bag of cherries? You make things with chocolate and cherries and then try not to eat all of them. I made these on a fluke as a dessert for a person’s invite for a swanky dinner night. They ate them and liked them. Andrew ate five the next day. … Continue reading

Mocha Fudge Bars

Mocha Fudge Bars

For some reason, I’ve always been TERRIBLE at baking brownies…but I thought that maybe I could make a brownie that didn’t include flour and I’d be a winner. I dreamed of a mocha flavoured gooey brownie..or something along those lines. I was skeptical when I saw what I concocted in the food processor. I was … Continue reading

Cashew Choc Chip Cookies

Cashew Choc Chip Cookies

I love chocolate chip cookies. Who doesn’t? I have a chocolate chip recipe that uses so much butter and sugar that you could drown in it…they’re also really good. But in an effort to replace some of the old hats with new ones, I’ve twisted the recipe around and threw cashews and oats in. Stay … Continue reading
