Homemade Flat Bread with Cinnamon & Sugar

  My oven hasn’t been working properly for over a month and I’ve been stuck with preparing all of our meals on the stove top. I love baking so it’s been a real pain.

Tiramisu

While I absolutely love coffee, I’m not a huge fan of cold coffee, unless of course it’s in a Tiramisu. I love the fact that Tiramisu literally means: “pick me up”, “cheer me up”, “wake me up”.

The best coconut cream pie!

I’m not sure what happened, but over the last couple of weeks the boys have started to go nuts for coconut. I guess it’s probably my fault for buying fresh coconut for a snack in the car. After that, there was no going back. I have always loved coconut, I love using coconut oil for… Continue reading The best coconut cream pie!
