Piña Colada Panna Cotta Pots

These Piña Colada Panna Cotta Pots will be the most talked-about dessert on your menu. The Piña Colada Panna Cotta Pots are literally Summer in a little pot. Pineapple, coconut, cream and rum. It says it all, doesn’t it. The best part for me, is that they are so quick to make and a single […]

Cheese Tower

A cheese tower or tower of cheese can NEVER be a bad thing, especially over the festive season. I made this cheese tower, because so many people have asked me about cheese towers for special occassions, like weddings, 21st parties of just special birthday celebrations.  I had all intentions do do this post earlier in […]

Mini Yogurt Cheesecakes

Mini yogurt Cheesecakes with quick strawberry jam – O, oh my gosh, I could not stop eating. I stopped counting at 5……. These mini yogurt cheesecakes are delicious as a dessert, but not overly sweet.

Banana Caramel Pudding

Banana Caramel pudding – what is not to love about it? My Banana Caramel pudding had all the comforting notes of a trifle, but I can hardly call it that. It was rather spur-of-the moment thinking today. I have not made pudding for Sunday lunch in ages, and this morning I thought, IT IS TIME. […]

My Christmas Baked Alaska is perfect for a South African Christmas. A Summer Christmas with sun and sea and open skies. The Christmas Baked Alaska also has a surprise element, because no one knows what is on the inside, until you cut it. Kind of like a Christmas gift….. just edible! The part I like […]

Strawberry Sago Pudding

My Strawberry Sago Pudding is going to raise eyebrows…….my dad’s eyebrows. He loves sago pudding, but not the jam thing, least of all strawberry jam. The Strawberry Sago Pudding is refreshingly different and it looks rather pretty, even if I have to say so myself. I have had so many requests for a sago pudding […]
