There’s only one kind of dip I like, and it’s Mexican layer dip. It makes my world. But what makes me sad is a Mexican layer dip that’s had a few people at it… it just looks… not appetizing. That’s why I love this idea - mini individual dips just for me! I reckon I could eat about three of these. Perfect for all the upcoming parties that we’re going to have and customizable for your preference.
Of all the Christmas foods, I think gingerbread is my favourite. Honey biscuits come in a close second (I don’t know why but I seem to only have these at Christmas). And I also love donuts. So it makes sense that I would love gingerbread faux donuts! Maybe not Christmasy, but you could use Christmas sprinkles!?
OK so these little fellas might be a little fiddly, but they are so cute, I think they would be totally worth the time! I especially love the little ‘skating tracks’ in the icing. All your guests will be clambering to eat/Instagram these!
Have You Heard Of? | Pecan Pie In-A-Jar
We finally have a Williams Sonoma in Australia, and when clicking through I saw this amazing idea - Pecan Pie In-A-Jar! All you have to do is mix the brown sugar laden pecan mix with some butter and eggs, pour into a pie shell, bake and then decide if you’re going to tell people that you made it from scratch or bought it… decisions, decisions…
One thing I get asked a lot is, ‘What are some cheap, bulk gifts I can make for Christmas?’. Well guys, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like homemade food. And Country Living has 29, count em’ 29 tutorials for you to pick from! Personally, I would love the Cinnamon Sugar Lattice Cookies, the Pretzels with Brown Sugar Rosemary Dijon, or the Gourmet Marshmallows. I myself plan on making the incredibly easy but visually appealing Peppermint Sticks!
I always see these amazing hand made creations at Christmas time like gingerbread houses with stained glass windows and fifty layer Christmas trees made from cookies and think… nope. My last attempt at a gingerbread house was a mess. The council should have come in and torn it down. But these little candy cane sleds? Super cute, check. super easy to make, check. Delicious. double check. Just try not to eat all the candy canes or you might end up with a bung sled!
I just found the Brit + Co blog and I’m in love! There are so many amazing DIYs (that you’ll see links to here!) and fantastic recipes, and this one certainly caught my eye. I’m not a huge fan of cheese, but I’m addicted to the Queso Fundido dip at Montezumas. Seriously, I could eat a tub of that stuff! There are 9 variations here (mmm, bacon!) to keep you going. If anyone can tell me a similar cheese to use in Australia I’d be interested to hear!
I know the name brand fruit roll ups are basically coloured sugar, but they’re so fun to eat! These fruit roll ups are slightly different, as in they actually contain fruit. A lot of fruit. Actually they’re just fruit! That’s right, just puree up your favourite fruit and then bake them to create the fruit straps. That’s the other thing I like about this recipe - you don’t need a dehydrator to make them.
If you’re anything like me, you like the idea of having fresh smoothies everyday, but the thought of getting up early, chopping, slicing, peeling, etc. makes me want to hit the snooze button. Well not only does ABM have some of the most amazing combos I’ve heard of, they also have a great idea on how to make it quick and simple! I’m going to have to try the raspberry & peach one…
Want something sweet, rich and completely decadent to serve up for sweets at your next party? Well look no further than this amazing dessert from With Lovely - Strawberry Fool. A layered dream of cream, strawberries, nutella and berry compote, make sure you make an extra one to hide in the fridge for the next day!
There are three things in this world that I would be lost without: pizza, potatoes, and donuts. Mmm. Donuts. I thought I had tried my share of donuts but I clearly haven’t lived because I’ve never tried a Chai. Key Lime Pie, Strawberry Pop Tart or Oreo donut! I have to try those Chai ones…
Have you read the magazine Sweet by Mollie Makes? It’s like a monthly vintage cookbook, full of gorgeous treats that I want to grab out of the magazine and eat. These little meringues look like they would fit right in on those pages. I love the pale, pastel colours and luckily enough, my mum just got a jar of lemon curd from a friend. These would be great for a baby or bridal shower too.
Oh this cake? It’s just a plain cake. Yeah, nothing interesting about this cake… let me cut it open and - YAY! Haha! What an awesome cake. Click through to find out the secret to achieving this birthday surprise…
Have you heard of cronuts? They’re a hybrid of donuts and croissants. And they’re insanely popular in NYC at the restaurant they were created in. People are selling them for $30 a pop! Well if you want to try them but a) do not want to wait in line for 3 hours or b) do not live in NYC, then here’s the recipe to make them yourself!
For those hot Summer nights when you’re hanging around the pool with your friends, there’s nothing more perfect than an ice cream. Even better is an ice cream with rum in it. Oh yeah. Of course you can make these without the alcohol if you’re not a fan or want to make these for your family!
