Honey Ice Cream

Summer is officially over but apparently not so in the Adeline & Lumiere kitchen. I can’t stop making delicious frozen goodies! This week I’ve made a beautiful creamy honey ice cream and I have to say, it’s a winner. You can really taste the sweet honey all the way through. This was my first time making actual ice cream rather than a sorbet. I wont lie, it wasn’t the easiest or quickest thing I’ve made but I’m sure there are far quicker recipes out there… but I guess that’s for

Well how was everybodys’ weekend? I don’t know about you but mine was great! First of all I had two pieces of good news on Friday afternoon… 1. I found out I got a new job (wooohoooo!) It was a three month process from the first interview, but it was worth the wait. Good things really do come to those who… well, you know ; ) 2. The second bit of good news was that I won a competition from The Design Files blog! The new book by ‘The Little

Oh my golly goodness, boy has it been hot in Melbourne. I love the heat however it’s completely put me off baking at the moment. Whilst we’re sweltering in this heat I thought it was the perfect time to make something icy and refreshing. I made this up when I was in a little bit of a rush last week. It’s my own recipe and I have to say it’s a winner. I had four happy little ripe nectarines in the fruit bowl and half a juicy watermelon in the

On our way home from London (over a year ago now – eip!) we swung past Thailand for one last cheeky little holiday!  One of our ‘things to do’ whilst there was to do a Thai cooking course.  I looked forward to learning how to cook some of their a-mazing food so we found a little cooking school right on the beach in a quiet coastal part of Koh Lanta.  We were able to choose 5 different dishes to cook including a red curry paste and the age old favourite

Lucky last on the Halloween inspired menu – Eaton Mess served with thick blood coulis and meringue mushrooms! And aren’t those mushrooms just too cute? These little ‘shrooms look so real and they’re all made out of meringue…well I’ll be donkey’s uncle! This is a nice easy dessert to make as you can prepare most of it the day before. All that’s needed is a little last minute assembly. So what’s been happening this week with you guys? I know I’ve been so busy I haven’t have time to scratch

It finally feels like a little bit of spring has sprung and just in time too. Last weekend we had a birthday bbq in the park to celebrate Eddy’s 30th Birthday. Happy Birthday Eddy! So of course, I wanted to make the prettiest & most delicious cake ever… and this one is a doozey. A Red Velvet Cake. The red fluffy centre is always a show stopper and a red velvet cake isn’t a red velvet cake unless it has cream cheese frosting on top. Dag nam it’s good. Looks

Chocolate & Hazelnuts – I don’t know what two flavours marry so well. According to my amazing new Flavour Thesaurus book by Niki Segnit, these two flavours came about in the late-nineteenth century due the the lack of cocoa. They had to add ground hazelnuts to bulk out what chocolate they had and hence Nutella was born!  Nutella would have to be my food heaven, so much so that I’ve had to ban myself from buying the stuff. I can’t have it in the house or I will eat it

This cake recipe doesn’t have one skerrick of butter or oil in it, so make it if you’re on that health-kick. Instead of butter I used Coconut milk (see…healthy right?). I was surprised how well the orange and milk coconut flavours go well together and topped off with the crunchy dessicated coconut – my ‘invented’ recipe is a winner!     Orange and Coconut Milk Cake 2/3 Cup coconut milk orange rind 1/4 cup fresh orange juice 3/4 cup sugar whisked 1 egg 1 cup self raising flour 1 tsp baking powder shredded

I’ve been thinking recently why exactly I’ve taken on this blog and taking the time to cook/bake/photograph and post everything;. I’ve discovered two things about myself. 1. I love baking. It puts me in a happy place and it’s always nice offering people home baked goodies. And 2. I’m not as good at cooking as I am baking. I’ve got my staple dishes that are always favourites but I want to teach myself how to be a better cook. I plan to cook lots of staple dishes that are always

  I made this Apple & Blueberry Pie for a bbq a few weeks ago and it was so well received – to say the least! If you’re not confident about making pastry, have no fear. The recipe is dead easy as you pretty much just put everything in your food processor/mixer/bowl and just beat it till it comes together. I think one of the most important things in pastry making is letting it rest and cool in the fridge. Let your filling cool quite a bit before you start
