    Foodie Friday | Mixed Berry Sponge Cake

    On Wednesday the 8th of April my gran turned 89 years old. We treated her by taking her to Flava cafe for lunch and later that evening we had some friends over for cake, savory tart and milk tart. Last year I made my gran a green fig cake, you can find the recipe here, she absolutely adores figs, I went to Woolworths to find the main ingredient for that cake but it was no where to be found so I made another cake with Berry Coulis from Woolworths SA, which was a huge success and I’m sharing the recipe…

    The Fláva Café Experience

    I haven’t done a lifestyle/foodie post in some time, it’s way overdue! This past Friday (10 Oct) marked the first night out on the town for me and hubby in our new town and we decided to go experience some of the local cuisine. We chose to try out Fláva Café, I loved how inviting it looked from the outside and it was recommended! Fláva Café We where greeted really friendly by nearly everyone there and chose where we wanted to sit. Fláva Café promises a restaurant experience in a cafe setting, but wow was I surprised.  We each ordered a milkshake…

    Tuesday Treasure with Zoku

    Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m really excited for today’s #TuesdayTreasure as this is one of the best kitchen items I’ve ever used and it’s right up spring’s ally. I so badly wanted one of these babies and my best friend was kind enough to buy it for my birthday and I’m totally in love with it. Zoku! Zoku So what am I raving about ?! It’s the Zoku Slush & Shake maker, these can be ordered from Yuppiechef and if your finances allows it, order two, I know I need a second one! I haven’t yet used it for making shakes but…
