Why We Love This Recipe

This Agar Agar Jelly recipe was inspired by our trip through Laos. True, we ate just about every colourful dessert imaginable on our journeys through lots of South East Asian countries, (including this tasty Lao PUMPKIN Coconut Custard). But these agar agar jelly cubes were just about the cutest ever! Not only do they have a delicately sweet, ever-so-slightly salty coconut flavour going on, they’ve also got a cool visual effect too. Made with plant-based agar powder instead of gelatin, the jelly separates into two distinctly gorgeous layers when cooling.

(In a rush? Click here to jump straight to the recipe!)

Ice cream has been a special treat in our family for as long as I can remember. Nowadays there are more fancy ice cream flavours than you can poke a popstick at, but what I remember best is the nightly dessert battleground that played out over the humble tub of Neapolitan.

Who would get their hands on the last scoop of strawberry ice cream? Or would the chocolate or vanilla get scooped up first?

Should I top with chocolate topping, sprinkles, fresh fruit or just eat it up au naturel?

Do I carefully blend every last bit  with my spoon til my ice cream more resembles a thickshake, or jump right in and eat it before anyone else can..?

Why We Love This Recipe

This Australian Pavlova Recipe sparks so many happy feels and memories of family celebrations. Like that time my aunty made the biggest pavlova I’d ever seen for my grandmother’s birthday.

Or those days spent inside with mum, beating the eggs and sugar and licking the whisks afterwards.

Pavlova takes us back to those backyard BBQ’s spent with friends under the summer sun. Of light and fluffy pavlova goodness after a heavy Christmas roast lunch – a dessert that leaves you feeling good and not sick from an overabundance of sugar.

To this day I’m not sure whether the crunchy outer shell or soft melty marshmallow centre is my favourite part of this dessert. Maybe it’s both!

What about you? What’s your favourite way to eat pavlova?

It’s been a while now since our wanders through Burma/Myanmar.

We had our first taste of Burmese culture and cuisine in Yangon, the country’s former capital, staying in a tiny windowless guesthouse in the heart of the city’s Chinatown district.

At the time, it all seemed like an overwhelming hubbub of new experiences, sights, sounds, and smells.
