the Aussie edit: Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake
My little tiny Aussie oven needs two things:  a rest and a cleaning.  Apparently it is swimmer birthday season and that has meant many warm hours of baking for my wee oven.   Pretty sure the baking of treats has contributed very little to the need for a goo...

the most gorgeous coconut cake
Perhaps you've seen the posts of this gorgeous cake of mine.  I mean......the cake that is to date the very best cake I have ever baked and I don't think it's just because I served it on a sunny winter morning at the beach with champagne and raspberries alt...

my kicthen rules (well, kind of since I am a little under equipped): chocolate meringue cake
Ahh, and we find an unposted draft.  Hmmmm..... how did I miss hitting the publish button?  It's always a good time for a chocolate cake post and this one is a good one.  Small and different enough to serve for a celebration or just because you need little ...

comforting: mushroom and ricotta pasta
Where did April and the sunshine go?  Our first guests to our beach apartment have come and gone after three fun weeks of showing them our Sydney, wine country and our first domestic flight to explore the outback.  You can read more about that on my expat b...

success at last: mini German pancakes
Finally gaining some momentum in my not so favorite Australian apartment kitchen.  I'm starting to get the hang of baking with my tiny little oven.  Fairly certain I need to buy an oven thermometer (one in celsius).  And pretty sure I need at least the Auss...
