    Cranberry Orange Pound Cake

    I bought a bag of Dried Cranberries without realising I had a bag of Dried Cranberries in my pantry. I made the old ones into a compote and used the new ones for this cake. I always tend to use Cranberries and Orange together as I believe they are a good match. And again I …

    Earl Grey Tea Scones

    I was a little disappointed with these ‘Earl Grey Tea Scones’. I expected the Scone would smell amazing, but the fragrance of Earl Grey Tea was not strong. It was subtle, but still beautiful. I wondered what flavour of Icing would be good for these Scones. I chose Orange. I used 100% natural juice squeezed …

    Sparkling Wine Jelly

    I had a bottle of Sparkling Wine that had been lying on a wine rack for more than 12 months. We didn’t open it because we knew it was too sweet for us, and I couldn’t throw it away. Today I made it into a jelly. It was Prosecco blended with Blood Orange, so I …

    Sweet Potato & Orange Spread

    Sometimes an accident leads to an invention. Today I found a Sweet Potato in my pantry getting mouldy. I cut off all the bad bits and there was about 160g good bit left. I boiled it to make Kimchi Salad for lunch but I forgot about it. Sweet Potato was over-cooked and too soft for …

    Orange Yoghurt Mousse

    Because my ‘Blueberry Yoghurt Jelly Dessert’ was so successful, I altered it to create another jelly dessert. I used Orange Juice instead of Milk and Cream, and added Yoghurt and Egg White. Because of the 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier I added, the result was almost Grand Marnier Mousse. WHEW!!! Please add it with caution, and …

    Apple & Orange Cake

    This cake used to be an Orange Cake. I started adding Apple, then the recipe has been altered repeatedly. Dried Black Currants, which are not so sweet or sour, are a good addition to this cake, I think, but it is optional. The most important ingredient of this cake is Orange Zest. I recommend to …

    Agar Orange Jelly

    I recently discovered a product called Queen’s ‘Jel-it-in Vegetarian Gelling Powder’ at a Woolworths store. It’s an Agar-base gelling powder and it is easy to use. Sometimes I prefer to use Agar or Kanten rather than Gelatine. For this orange juice jelly, definitely Agar is the best option. And Queen’s ‘Jel-it-in’ dissolves very well. I …

    Carrot Jelly with Orange Sauce

    There is a story behind this dessert. When I started feeding my son with solid food, I made great efforts to introduce him a variety of vegetables. He ended up hating vegetables. Then, I started inventing food that is hiding vegetables so that he would eat hidden vegetables without knowing it. This ‘Carrot Jelly’ is …

    Fennel & Orange Salad

    I never knew any vegetables that smells and tastes like Fennel. When I tried it for the first time, it reminded me the smell of insect repellent and I did not think I could eat it. But it is now one of my favourite vegetables and I have been on this fennel craze for a …
