I first wrote about these date scones yonks ago. This was back when I had an iPhone 4 as a camera and long before having an eclectic and staged array of objects in the frame was fashionable. Recently I've made it my mission to write a cookbook and whilst my new images are no where near suitable it forces me to double check the recipes that I hold most dear. It also means Dylan's work gets a lot of morning tea.Read More
So it really has been a while. You know its bad when you find yourself with nothing to blog but brussel sprouts.Read More
I've received some rather lovely messages from friends but also random strangers about recipes they've made from my site and how much they and their friends have loved them. My scones apparently won a friend of mine a cheeky pash on top of One Tree Hill. I use my blog a lot, it is a handy online record of all the recipes I love so when I am out at the supo and wondering what on earth goes into something all I have to do is use The Google.
One such recipe I find myself ego surfing on is the basic but foolproof chocolate cake recipe. I've been vowing to post a simplified version with a single recipe of buttercream for people who are after a modest but always reliable cake.Read More
So I made this cake originally for Shine's Orange Friday appeal where we raffled it off and made $167.50 to help support the victims of domestic abuse in New Zealand. See, sharing is caring!

Its a good one for sure when you don't feel like making a complicated cake or faffing around with icing one.Read More

A young man made me food. Not just any food either, my favourite food. I was made the most delicious risotto of my life. To top it all off the man making it has the most excellent face I've ever seen as well. So much win in one go.Read More
I swapped a small bag of juicy lemons for a kilo of ricotta the other day. These are the sorts of underground dealings that I dabble in.Read More
Adulting. I hate it. I really do.
Sophie you should start saving real money. Sophie you need to think about your career. Sophie you don't really want to still be single when you're 30, all the good ones will be taken then.
I made friends with a flat of boys recently. They committed the ultimate 'anti-adulthood' act the other day. They bought a deep-fryer from Kmart for $35.
I am officially the world's worst sick person. I now fully understand my grandmother's frustration when she isn't allowed to help around the kitchen on Christmas Day.Read More
