Magic Pavlova

For me, this is one of the best summer desserts ever.

Crunchy meringue base, topped up with vanilla cream 
and piles of fresh fruit.

Meringues Forever

Meringues are not for those on a diet.
But they can be pretty irresistible

Cinnamon Swirls

Sometimes I could just die for a Cinnamon swirl for breakfast 


So what can you do with the yesterday's bread? If you have any at all that is :)   

You slice it nice and thick, drizzle some olive oil, spread a bit of home made tomato sauce, add some roasted vegetables of your choice, top up like a pizza with grated mozzarella, salt, pepper, herbs and voila ...

I present the BRUSCHETTA - simple, tasty, irresistible 

You grab the bread, make the sauce, grate the cheese

Breakfast Teasers

Coffee and Croissants. 
There is nothing better than that for breakfast.

I developed my own croissants recipe. 
I took me 6 months work to perfect it. 
I guess I am a bit picky when it is about work.


I called them Secrets. Simply because it's a secret recipe

In love with seeds

Seeds give a fabulous finish to a hand made bread. 

There is even no need to add seeds in the mix to feel their taste. Just rolling the loafs in a selections of your favorite seed mix is enough to boost the flavour to the ceiling. 

I am simply in love with seeds
