I have been on a bit of a health kick over the past couple of weeks following a particularly nasty bout of flu which is taking a while to completely recover from. To aid my recovery, I have been pumping my body full of wholesome, healthy foods, and staying away from the naughty stuff. As I am quite partial to a sweet treat with a cup of tea, rather than be tempted I have been making up these Vitality Balls.

Limes are in season, and I am fortunate to have a tree which is currently bulging with fruit. As well as give limes away to friends and neighbours, I like to make the most of them in my cooking. This includes these delicious muffins which sing with the flavours of summer. At this time of the year, these are the muffins we serve to our cooking class participants when they arrive, and they are always devoured. They are easy to make too – you’ll have them prepared and ready to cook before your oven is hot!
I have been test-running the new Baked and Delicious magazine the past couple of weeks, and wanted to share with you some of the gorgeous recipes I have been making. Baked and Delicious is a fortnightly baking magazine, comprising recipes, step-by-step instructions and better baking tips. The magazine is beautifully photographed, and the recipes include sweet and savoury, traditional and modern. In addition, each issue includes a different piece of silicone bakeware, including pans, trays and moulds, to form a complete range of standard sizes and shapes to suit most recipes.

Strawberries are in the height of their season on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia, where I live. As they are so inexpensive to buy at the moment, I have been buying them in bulk and preparing a wide selection of strawberry dishes – strawberry jam, strawberry cake, strawberry daiquiris, strawberry clafoutis to name but a few!
It’s Australia Day tomorrow, a day when Australians celebrate everything that’s great about this fantastic country. It is also a day when Australians enjoy some of their favourite national dishes – pavlova, barbequed lamb and lamingtons come to mind. I like to bake a batch of Anzac biscuits for Australia Day – everyone loves these tasty treats and they are a cinch to make.
