If you've haven't made a Pavlova, simply put - you must. I've made many varieties over the years and every single one has been devoured with pleasure. Pavlova is a beautiful thing. It's not difficult to make and it's a decadent dessert without a lot of fuss. The sugar is fairly low in comparison to many traditional desserts, and it's and gluten free.
Toblerone Shortbread Cookies literally translated means "to die for". Well not really but they are my all time favourite Christmas cookie. They're not only easy to whip up but they smell and taste amazing. For some reason shortbread is something I usually only indulge in during the Christmas season, and this particular recipe has become a Christmas tradition.
This was our first Christmas in White River, South Africa, away from family and friends. We were definitely missing everyone along with many of the things that are both normal and special during the Christmas season. While our home in Ottawa, Canada was being turned into a winter wonderland, we were taking refuge in a swimming pool.
All things cooking, from simple and clean to gourmet and exotic (and everything in between) have been my passion for over 30 years. Since discovering Pinterest, I pretty much exclusively cook from the recipes I PIN. My saying is, "if you can PIN it, you can cook it". I love to PIN recipes and I love to cook. I thought, why not blog the recipes I make from my Pinterest food boards. I'm the self-declared, Pincook.
