Crostata has always been my favourite cake. As a child, I would always ask my mother to bake an Apple Crostata for my birthday. Today, I still bake it quite often my my children, and this Nutella Crostata is their absolute favourite.
Schiacciata alla Fiorentina
Tomorrow is Mardi Gras or Carnevale as we call it in Italy. Carnevale is a big event in Italy – kids even stay home from school! Everyone dresses up for almost a week and goes on parades with all kinds of floats.
I made these Peacock Cupcakes as part of my daughter’s 8th birthday celebrations. She had an India-themed party, so after making Mehndi Cupcakes and an Indian Cake, I thought to make Peacock Cupcakes to take to school for her classmates.
As you may remember, just before Christmas, my youngest daughter turned 8. She wanted an Indian themed birthday party, so she and her sister could wear the beautiful Indian outfits their grandma got for them from India.

I love Christmas themed food and I especially love Christmas themed cupcakes. After sharing my Christmas Tree Cupcakes a few days ago, today I am back with these Reindeer Cupcakes. Aren’t they the cutest thing ever? My girls absolutely adored them and the best part is, you can involve the kids while decorating them as…
Reindeer Rice Krispies Treats
Even though it’s summer here in Australia, I still like to come up with fun Christmas projects to make with the kids… but because of the heat, I tend to prefer recipes that don’t necessarily require baking. These Reindeer Rice Krispies Treats fit the bill perfectly. They are very easy to make and will keep…
Christmas Tree Cupcakes
These Christmas Tree Cupcakes are so much fun to make! I baked chocolate cupcakes to use as the base of the tree and then topped them with green vanilla buttercream to make the tree. To decorate the “tree” you can use anything you like. I used mini chocolate chips of different colours, silver pearls and…
Condensed Milk Cookies
Today’s recipe is an absolute keeper. I mean, Condensed Milk Cookies… how yum does that sound? It is the perfect way to use up that leftover condensed milk (store-bought or home-made) you have lying in the fridge.
Homemade Jelly Candies
Jelly candies covered in sugar were among my favourite candies as a child. I used to love the citrus flavoured ones the most. The crunchiness of the sugar coating and the gummy softness of the candies, the sweetness and tartness were all contrasts I could not resist! This homemade version is healthy and delicious… it…
Sweet Yogurt Braids
During my kids’ winter holidays, I made these Sweet Yogurt Braids to have as a snack. They are healthy and taste delicious. And the best part? The girls loved them! I love sweet breads, don’t you? And these are particularly tasty and they also look cute, which is always a plus, especially for the kids….
Gelato al Puffo
Today I am going to show you how to make a fun recipe that your kids will love. It’s called Gelato al Puffo – aka Smurf Gelato. This ice cream was really popular in Italy during the 80’s and 90’s. Smurfs were really popular too and we all used to watch the show on TV….
If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter you will know that I have been travelling through Japan! Unfortunately, we are now back home and trying to get readjusted to our usual routine. I will be sharing the details of my my trip as soon as I finish to sort out all the photos…

Pineapple Strawberry Apple Smoothie
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! We have eaten a lot, as usual, so today I am back with something light and healthy! I love smoothies and this Pineapple Strawberry Apple Smoothie is amazing. I love the flavour combination and I think pineapple makes for a great addition, especially in winter, as it adds…
My youngest daughter turned 7 on the 1st of December. She fell in love with Doraemon when we visited Japan a couple of years ago and this year she requested a Japanese themed birthday party and a Doraemon cake! As I too love Japan and grew up watching Japanese anime (Doraemon included!), I was very…
Apple filled Cookies
I must admit that we never ate many sweets in my home. My mum is a fantastic cook, but she never really liked baking. One of the exceptions was her Crostata di Mele (click here for the recipe), which till today is still my favourite cake. There is nothing better than biting into sweet crumbly…
Gravity Defying M&M’s Kit Kat Cake
I made this Gravity Defying M&M’s Kit Kat Cake for my eldest daughter’s 9th birthday. I usually make fondant cakes for my kids’ birthdays, but this year I decided to go for something “easier”. I have recently undergone surgery, so I did not have a lot of time for “planning” this cake. Besides, my daughter…
