Pistachio and coconut cream mousse tart
When I was 11, I sat down with my mum and asked her about all our family recipes, how they came about and who passed on which recipe. I sat down and wrote up every single recipe in my special leather clad book with my cute pink fluffy pen. It took weeks to write down each recipe and it was somehow frustrating since most family recipe don’t have exact measurements- me being a baker suffered greatly from that since I measure just about everything.
“I can’t give you measurements to the dot- you might need more of this, you might need less of that” mum said.
But I’m glad- this has helped me strengthen my cooking skills, allow me to freely create recipes with confidence.
Often throughout the year, I often find myself flipping through our family cookbook, cooking my way through it and admiring the spills of saffron cake batter on the damaged pages.

Salted caramel and almond brownies
Yesterday was officially the last day of Term 3. I’m excited and thrilled. All my assignments have been handed in and I’m just so happy that I’ll finally have some time to myself, to relax, bake a tonne… and finish watching Breaking Bad. I know, I’m so delayed on the bandwagon there.
Excuse my delayed-ness…
My new lenses finally arrived in the mail this week and I’m jumping for joy. As you may not know, my mum surprised me with a new camera (one in which I had my eyes on for quite a while now) which was super sweet of her.
Prepare your bodies for a whole heap of photos– and a whole heap of food- because they’re coming.

Raspberry, almond and orange cake for Sporteluxe
This is going to be a super short post, but I just wanted to let you all know that I was featured on Sporteluxe today– a healthy living and style blog.
I had the chance to work with the fellow Australian masterminds to bring you this recipe, which is looks super fancy schmancy but so, so easy.
I shared the recipe for my raspberry, almond and orange cake which is both sugar-free and vegan. Oh, and guilt-free of course- we don’t want any of that there!
So go on, check it out and I hope it inspires you to bake!

Ultimate chocolate cake and new beginnings
So it’s finally here. After months of blood, sweat and tears (just tears) it’s done! A new home for La Gallette and somehow a new beginning…
I started blogging when I was 13, uploading my most favourite recipes along with horrible photos (and sometimes no photos at all). I shared how my week went and what I’ve been up to, hoping that there was someone on the other side that would benefit from my ramblings. At first after talking to myself for a few months, people started to follow my work and somehow magically enjoy it, which was astonishing to say the least.
