Rockmelon Ice Cream

One of the greatest things I ate when I was in Japan last month wasn’t sushi, katsu, or udon, it was a simple ice cream cone from a convenience store. CTO, Miss G, and myself visited the Bengal Cat Forest when we were in Kyoto (the bengals were adorable and so cuddly, one slept on…

Kit Kat Crunch Fudge

One of my local cheapie shops has a great selection of sweet stuff, and recently they’ve had out a big range of different Kit Kats. Normal, Chunky, mint, orange, green tea, and all shades in between; it’s Kit Kat heaven. And best of all, it’s all cheap! What else am I to do but make…

Juicy Jelly Icy Pops

I bet if you go into your pantry, you will find more than a few packets of jelly crystals. I’m right, aren’t I? When I’m living in Australia, I normally have at least at least 5 packets of jelly crystals in the pantry. There are just soooo many flavours, I just want to get one…

White Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Would you believe that I had made this at the beginning of November? You would? Yes, I know, I had been Little Miss Procrastinator in the good ol year that was 2015. Now that Miss G is going to school for 5 days a week and an extra hour a day (my baby! 😭) I…

Cold Brewed Overnight Coffee

It’s been an interesting few months over here on the Red Dot. The MM family has now been in Singapore for 2.5 months, and during that time we’ve moved into our flat, caught up with some old friends, celebrated Miss G’s 2nd birthday, and distantly welcomed our little newborn nephew into our family. And I’m…

Disney’s “Frozen” Elsa’s Icicles

How crazy has the whole “Frozen” phenomenon been? Even months after it’s been out, there is still so much merchandise out there, and every time I go out to my local shopping centre I see at least 2 little girls dressed up as Elsa. I don’t remember a Disney 2D movie being this popular since…

Strawberry Coconut Popsicles

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic Chrissy and firecracker season, and are ripping and rearing for a great new year! Did anybody make any resolutions? I didn’t, but I’m going to try and do the same thing I do every year; lose a bit of weight. I did pretty well…

‘Hawthorn’ Chocolate Honeycomb Ice Cream

Gourmet ice cream. We love the thickness, the supreme fattiness of the cream, and the way it clings to the spoon and coats your tongue as it glides down your throat. We love the 1002 flavours available, the exotic ingredients, and the posh names that have way too many words in it. But what we…

Sausage Rolls

As I wrote in my last post (Chocolate Peanut Butter Spiders), there are some foods that are a must at an Australian kid’s party. Or really, at any Aussie lunch/afternoon function. And tradition dictates that there must be at least 1 item on the menu that has puff pastry as the primary ingredient. For if…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Spiders

What’s this? More fantastic 90’s yummy treats? Yes, I’m going to make you all relive all your childhood birthday parties with these goodies! Think back to any kids party you attended during the 1990’s in Australia and you’ll remember that the menu’s were all pretty simple and all very similar. Chocolate crackles, honey joys, fairy…

Chocolate Nut Brownie Energy Bar

Ever since I’ve become a mother I’ve gained a new food addiction; muesli bars. They’re easy, compact, and you can eat it with one hand whilst feeding a baby, pushing a pram, well you can see where I’m going. I always liked them before, but I have a new appreciation for these pocket morsels. It…

Banana Bread Granola

All cereal would be awesome if it didn’t have dried fruit in it, I reckon. Sultanas and raisins ruin everything! Yep, I’m one of those people. You know, the ones who think a mocha choc-chip Hot Cross Bun is perfectly acceptable to eat at Easter, the ones who berate the local cafe staff for not mentioning on…
