Mouth-Watering Apple Strudel That’s Low In Sugar

A dessert that isn’t too high in sugar content and my boys love (well, who doesn’t love dessert really?!)

My eldest helped me make this, and even took along some pictures and the recipe to his daycare for news day. His daycare was so great that they even made this with his classmates a few days later. All the kids got to help cut up the apples, smell the cinnamon and taste the apple mixture before it was baked. And dessert at daycare that day was….. apple strudel.

My kids love helping out in the kitchen. That they love the finished product is even better ๐Ÿ™‚

Deliciously Sweet White Chocolate and Cherry Blondies

Blondies are awesome, right? A sweet chocolately slice with a burst of fresh cherries – even better!

I’ve been very, very slack lately with putting recipes up here. I could blame lots of different things – working extra days, looking after my 2 boys, being pregnant with bub #3 and the associated tiredness ……. But I won’t. I’ve just been lazy.

It doesn’t mean that I haven’t been cooking though. I’ve got a few things backlogged, so expect a few more recipes in the coming days. Even though cherries are no longer available here in Australia this is still a great recipe to bookmark, for when they come back later in the year. It’s perfect for Christmas entertaining and won’t disappoint.

I’ve only recently gotten into dutch cocoa. Soo delicious and it just takes your chocolate cakes to a whole new level. Hmmmm…. brownies!

Scrumptious Mulberry and Almond Slice That’s Sugar Free

It’s that time of year again – Mulberry time!ย And what better way to try them out than by cooking them up in a slice recipe!

Yet again my Mum’s Mulberry tree is heavily laden with the rich black berries. The tree is huge, and people from all over her neighbourhood come to taste test. They eat them straight from the tree, and also fill up small containers with the mulberries to take home to enjoy. I’ve been lucky enough to share the picking experience with my 2 boys this year – Red hand alert! My youngest also had a bright red mouth to match his hands ๐Ÿ™‚

My mum likes to make lots and lots of Mulberry Pies and Mulberry Jam. I’ve decided to try to make some slices with my mulberries. This slice recipe contains no sugar… (more…)
