I remember my Aunt making Angel Cakes for family occasions. Birthdays, Anniversaries or Sunday post-church gatherings she would present a tupperware container full of fluffy vanilla cupcakes, stuffed with jam and cram and finished with powdered sugar. I’ve taken her tradition and my new-found love of snickerdoodles and kind of smashed them together. It occurred to me that cinnamon, apples and bacon is a marriage made in heaven .. et voilà!!  Snickerdoodle Angels 🙂

Snickerdoodles

Try to resist .. I dare you!!

Try to resist .. I dare you!!

What is a Snickerdoodle you ask? A little puff of cinnamon, sugary bliss. These American classics have a soft, chewy sugar-cookie center with a cinnamon sugar coating, perfect with hot cocoa or just because. They are also ridiculously easy to make ..

Beetroot Lemonade

Delicious, refreshing and packed with vitamins ..

Delicious, refreshing and packed with vitamins ..

Feeling a little under the weather? Needing something cool and refreshing to beat the heat? I have you covered. This cordial is delicious, refreshing and packed with andioxidantss. Perfect topped with chilled water or soda, even more perfect topped with ginger beer. I’ve even been known to use it as the beginnings for some pretty amazing cocktails. Use the freshest beets you can get to maximise the nutritional boost .. and don’t forget to wear gloves unless you really like magenta hands!!

There are distinct nutritional benefits from eating whitefish such as Flake, Hake and Tilapia. They are packed with phosphorous, selenium, zinc and magnesium as well as B Group vitamins, especially B12. They are also very often cheaper than their darker, oilier cousins, but are (sadly) usually sold frozen, a process that ruins the soft, delicate texture of the meat. At the market today I found some delightful, super fresh Flake (shark) so I pounced on it with glee. This is my favourite, low fuss, low mess way to cook it .. and it’s faster than driving to the Chippy for takeaway too!!

Slow Cooker BBQ Slab O’ Ribs

Succulent, Fall-Off-The-Bone "BBQ" Ribs

Succulent, Fall-Off-The-Bone “BBQ” Ribs

Beloved has a secret, guilty pleasure. He watches “Barbecue Pit Masters” when he thinks we are all busy.  Not that I blame him, fire and a slab of beautiful meat strikes a primal chord in all of us. I set out to reproduce some of the delectable dishes I’d seen him drooling over. Lacking a smoking pit, or a full day to pamper and fuss over the slab of meat I brought home from the Butcher, I cheated. The results would have a Pit Master sniffing disdainfully at my claim to Barbecue Ribs .. but I bet they’d come back for seconds once they’d tried it. Beloved certainly did 🙂
