Summer is calling and it’s time to celebrate! This Easy Australian Pavlova Recipe is all about that crunchy, crumbly meringue shell and soft, pillowy marshmallow centre, topped with lashings of sweet cream and fruit. And with KitchenAid’s new Artisan Mini Mixer, this easy pavlova recipe is ready in 2, 4, 6, 8!
Okay guys, I know there’s been huge debate over whether this simple sweet dessert of meringue, cream and fruit has Australian, New Zealand or even American origins.
But to anyone who’s seriously pondering this, we’ve got only one thing to say:
Just eat it already!
Don’t know about you, but I’m more than happy to share ownership with anybody when Pavlova tastes this good. 😉
No matter which origin story you believe, here’s our Australian version of how we cooked Pavlova growing up.
These Sparkling Red Wine Gingerbread Cookies will definitely get you on Santa’s good list this year. Packed with tingling spice, cook them til they’re soft and chewy or crunchy and crumbly – your choice!
Okay yeah, you might be looking at that title and thinking, ‘Oh cool, gingerbread cookies with a sip of sparkling wine, sounds delish. I’ll take it.’
Oh we do love your style!
We decided to skip the sip step, and pour our sparkling shiraz straight into the gingerbread dough.
Why, you ask?
Because we’re curious. Because we love to experiment, and because we love adding wacky and wonderful creations to our repertoire.
And also because…
Why not? 😀
One bite of this fragrant Moong Dal Curry will send you to spice heaven. Add eggs, and transform it from a simple side dish to a satisfying main. There’s plenty of garlic and ginger, tingles of cumin, savoury turmeric and a nice hit of chilli spice.
Guys, this recipe has been on our personal favourites list for aaaages, so we felt it was high time to share it with you!
And while we didn’t learn it on any overseas adventure, it’s been one of our favourite ways to explore India (or at least, Indian cuisine) from our very own kitchen.
Much like we hope you get to do with our other worldly recipes. 😉
Crispy crunchy, super thin and delicately sweet: We dare you to stop at just one of these Italian Butter Cookies. Only four ingredients and a super easy recipe stand between you and these tasty little morsels, which go amazingly with coffee or tea, smothered in chocolate, or dished up with ice cream. Ooooh yeah.
These little Italian biscuits are the bomb. With a name that translates to tongue of the cat (or even cat languages, if you trusted google translate 😛 ) how could you resist?
What could be faster than mac and cheese? Your very own Cacio e Pepe, of course. Literally consisting of pasta, pecorino romano cheese and cracked black pepper, it’s the sophisticated take on mac and cheese for adults that you’ve been waiting for.
So this week we tried an Italian recipe that is going to BLOW your cheese-loving minds.
(Assuming you are as massive lovers of cheese as we are. You ARE, aren’t you??)
Now, this recipe comes to you by way of our good friend Stefan. We first caught up in Venice at our friend Beppe’s apartment (and you might remember both of them from this little recipe-fail known as How NOT To Make all’Amatriciana).
As it turns out, Cacio e Pepe has sorta/kinda a few similar techniques to all’Amatriciana, but this time there was no Beppe around to throw his chaotic little spanners in the works! 😛 😛 😛
So what little knacks do you need to know to get it juuuust riiiight?
