Raspberry and Chocolate Brownies

Today is new years eve. Time to remember (or in many cases forget) 2011 and look forward to the new year and all the possibilities it brings.
2011 was a big mixed bag for me. It had it's highs, like the creation of this blog, finding a new friend for life and finally shifting some kilos but you can't have highs without lows. 2011 had many low points for me but all of them made me a better person in the end.

Bee Hive Ice Cream Pudding

I know Christmas is well and truly over and many of you, like myself, have probably had enough of all that food. If the site of more food makes you want to run screaming from the room then best look away now.

Coconut Snowballs

Another yummy Christmas treat from my mum, Wendy. Although I do think it's slightly amusing that my mum, the woman who hates anything that is snow related when it comes to Christmas ("Because it's the middle of summer"), has made a recipe called "snowballs".

Festive Fruit Blondies

While I may have been avoiding my kitchen, My mum has been busy in her kitchen creating delicious treats for Christmas day.

Quick and Easy Fruit Mince

Fruit mince is one of those versitile ingredients that you can add to almost anything. Cakes, muffins, pastry and occasionally even things like stuffing.

Double Chocolate Cupcakes

I have definitely lost my motivation! I have not baked a thing for weeks!

Even now when I should excitedly be baking an array of delicious Christmas treats, I am instead feeling tired at even the thought of finding something to bake.
