Chocolate Beetroot Brownies, originally uploaded by dichohecho.

Recently I heard of chocolate and zucchini cake, which piqued my interest right up until I heard about chocolate and beetroot cake!
I made some chocolate and Guiness cupcakes not too long ago and they were super rich and delicious so I’m looking forward to trying this! I’m researching recipes at the moment. I’ve found quite a few different variations; gluten and lactose free, vegan, with a dash of rum and pecans/macadamias, with delicious frosting, using tinned beets (most of the others use fresh), meringue cake, and the list goes on.

Banana Berry Smoothie: Yum

It’s lovely and sunny and warm right now and I felt like a smoothie. I had the tools on hand, namely a pistachio green blender, so all I had to do was cobble together some ingredients and this is what I made:


1 large banana, chopped

1/2 cup natural yoghurt

1/2 cup lite milk

1/2 cup frozen mixed berries

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon of cinnamon – or to taste if you prefer

5 ice cubes


Place all ingredients in blender. Whizz. Consume, om nom nom, am nam nam.

I have a particular recipe from xshay I have been meaning to try so perhaps I shall make more smoothies to fill my summer days.

A wonderful friend has planted the idea in my head to try some baking with green tea powder. I should be able to get some matcha (green tea) powder at my local Asian supermarket, though I think it’s a little pricey so I’ll see how I go. I’ve had a bit of a Google Blogs search and have some up with these potential recipes:

1. Green Tea Cupcakes, 2. Bright, 3. Green Cake, 4. matchacookies_dec11_08_006, 5. my first cupcakes, yaaaay! it’s totally coming together!, 6. Matcha Génoise Cake

Chocolate Stout Cupcakes, originally uploaded by alicebluebonnet.

Made these a little while ago from this recipe. The Guiness makes the cupcakes deliciously rich and dense, almost like a brownie! Great recipe. The only problem was I had almost double the icing I needed left over from what this recipe recommended. So I was…forced… to make some spiced pumpkin cupcakes using this recipe to go with the spare icing.

Four Cheese Pizza

Four Cheese Pizza, originally uploaded by alicebluebonnet.

Mmm mmm. Due to my flatmate being a cheesomaniac (Hi Kylie!) we just happened to have 4 types of cheese (well 5 if you count the cream cheese)  in the fridge. So I did the obvious and made a pizza.
