More Girl Food!

20150812_13185020150812_131853Two days in a row I had food made by the fairer sex. These are Gingernut Caramel Tarts made by Miss Nara. She even made the caramel from scratch…that’s almost cooking!


20140507_164150 This is Paula’s first shot at making Maccarons. They are passion fruit20140507_164211flavoured. While neither of us was too fussed on the flavour the maccarons were good. Crispy outside and chewy goodness inside. She will try another flavour next time round.

I was surprised how light and fluffy the batter becomes when you deep fry it. They are often dipped in chocolate sauce before eating, we had caramel and chocolate. Chilli chocolate sauce would be a treat too.

Sweets From My Sweet

nov2013_60 I had never seen this slice until I met Paula. It is called “White Christmas” It’s something that her mum used to make. Kinda like albino rocky road but its made with Copha and rice bubbles and all sorts of things like glace cherries and dried paw paw, strawberry squares, sultanas and I guess anything you like. Takes maybe 1/2 an hour to make then a couple of hours in the fridge chillin. Then just slice and try to stop at …a couple!
