(I’ve logged in to check my WordPress account and apparently I have a new trophy – I started blogging two years ago! So in celebration of my terrible updating skills in those two years, here’s a post I’ve been meaning … Continue reading
I’ve been wanting to make cupcakes lately, but I’m a little sick of vanilla. Unsure of a good flavour to try, I’ve waited until inspiration has hit. Of course, inspiration hits right when I should be writing school reports. Oh … Continue reading
Chocolate cookie crust, dark chocolate baked filling, dark chocolate ganache, topped with chocolate flavoured whipped cream, and drizzled with chocolate ganache… Do I have your attention yet? This is only the second pie I have made – the first was … Continue reading
(I’m currently in the midst of crazy amounts of unit planning and gathering resources for my (new!) class, which is very exciting, but crafting and baking is suffering… Luckily, I found these in my photo album, and realised I never … Continue reading
I’ve been thinking over the past few days that when it comes to baking, crafting and just general life, there are a few things I stick by. I don’t write much about myself, so here I am – the good, … Continue reading

I looked around online, but I just wasn’t happy with any of the recipes I found, so I made my own.

I discovered this recipe last week, and I’ve made it twice already! It’s that good, and quite easy too. I’ve always missed out on the whole meringue pie craze, as I really don’t like the whole lemon thing, so when … Continue reading
