Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate pudding oozing with a rich dark chocolate syrup was how we rolled on Mother’s Day this year! Chocolate……..truly the stuff good desserts are made of! Chocolate pudding is sweet, overly sweet if you are not in a indulgent  dessert mood, so for me it is best consumed in small portions! In my house, it […]

Posted on April 8, 2014 by in baked goods


Apricot mini cakes for tea or even a quick dessert is just what the doctor ordered this time of the year when there is a slight chill in the air. Apricot is my favorite flavor in juice, it makes the best kebabs, it adds flavor to a classic Bobotie and stuffed with goats cheese and […]

According to Wikipedia, clothing trends and furniture from  around 1980 to 1990 that is back in fashion […]

Banoffee Pots with Salted Caramel – total indulgence!

Posted on January 2, 2013 by in desserts, rsg


These Banoffee Pots were so good, oh my gosh! Salted Caramel on its own, eaten with a little spoon from a glass jar is enough to swoon over! Combine it with ginger biscuits, bananas and cream to make little banoffee pots and you  could be in serious trouble or a state of total indulgence! Trouble […]
