Mini Strawberry Galettes

With the lead up to the release of my book, I’m preparing my brain for a world that is a bit of stranger to me – the media. Amongst the anxiety of it all, I found myself having to answer interview questions for an upcoming magazine article (cute!). True to my nature I put a […]

Carrot Cake Pancakes with Whipped Maple Butter

It is quite surreal to be typing up the announcement that accompanies this recipe. Eat This My Friend is soon to be in print. A hold-it-in-your-hands type of actual real life book. And whilst I am incredibly excited, it kinda also seems too good to be true. So much so that sometimes I am wonder when […]

christmas dessert table

Raspberry + Almond Meringue Roulade

Christmas in my family was always a bit of a non-event. They were never the type to make a big deal of it. No Christmas tree to decorate, or twinkling of pretty Christmas lights in the lounge room. No carols either. There wasn’t the anticipation of a midnight visit from Santa and his reindeers, thus there […]

gingerbread cake

Gingerbread Cake with Lemon Icing

Some of you may remember the time we went on an amazing desert adventure. I made a double batch of peanut butter and choc-chip cookies to keep us occupied during the long driving stints, and my friend Marty made his incredible gingerbread cake. I remember eating this cake, straight from a tupperware container that was resting […]

World’s Best Pecan Pie

This week I was faced with, what could only be described as, one of my absolute worst nightmare type situations. I had been invited to a party – a pot-luck Thanksgiving party – and had nominated myself to be the person in charge of Pecan Pie. I was pretty excited about this. There would be delicious […]

Raw Vegan Key Lime Pies

I am terrified of saying goodbye. Goodbye to people, to objects, to situations. And for some reason it makes no difference to me whether I am saying goodbye to something good or something bad. It is the ‘letting go’ that is the problem. It was my birthday over the weekend. And as usual, I got weird […]

apple sandwiches with almond butter

Apple Slices with Cinnamon Almond Butter

As I have continually expressed, I have a long history of weird food behaviour and food obsessions. Yet there has never been an obsession greater than my affinity with peanut butter. There have  many occasions where I have eaten half a jar, in some crazed frenzy, and thought well, that’s dinner taken care of. This behaviour is […]

flourless orange juice cake

Flourless Orange Juice Cake

This cake was the result of an experiment. I needed to make a flourless orange cake for my little sister’s birthday, but  I had absolutely no time for the usual pre-boil the oranges method. So I was forced to get a bit creative. I found the whole thing quite fascinating, really. The fact that I am now, […]

Raw Salted Caramel Fudge

Sometimes I feel I am a walking contradiction. A cacophony of opposing traits. A tiny ball of chaos that is obsessed with systems and order. Overflowing with love. Cries way too much. A pillar of strength, with the potential to crumble any second. Overly proud. Overly vulnerable. Filled with terror, yet as brave as can be. It’s very confusing.Tomorrow […]

vegan choc peanut butter cake

Vegan Chocolate Cake w Peanut Butter Choc Frosting

It was Eat This My Friend’s birthday yesterday. Two Years now. Holy smokes! The posts over the last 12 months really do reflect the tumultuous state of my life. And I feel that the focus has somehow shifted from recipe sharing, to sharing my thoughts. Maybe you’ve noticed, maybe you haven’t. I made a little joke […]
