How to bake the perfect pavlova

How to bake the perfect pavlova

Ah pav… the most important part of any classic Aussie Christmas day menu! There is a never ending culture war over whether we own it or it rightfully belongs to New Zealand, but I say at this point we let it go and just acknowledge that the pav is a quintissential part of both our cultures… after all, we have…

Whipped Up turns 2!

Whipped Up turns 2!

Oh boy how the time does fly… When I started Whipped Up, I told myself I’d commit a year to this little idea of mine. One year, and if it didn’t take off, I’d retrain as a teacher and teach either home economics or history (my two great loves). I hoped like anything that it would grow enough to support…

Why you should host a cooking class Christmas party

Why you should host a cooking class Christmas party

As we close in on Christmas Party season, many small businesses struggle with coming up with a Christmas party idea that isn’t just ‘taking everyone to lunch or dinner’. Parties are usually off the table, due to the small number of employees and often small businesses have limited budgets on what they can spend per head. But that doesn’t mean…

Public holidays are the best! I love any excuse for a public holiday (ok, that’s untrue, I am vehemently against the Melbourne Cup due to animal cruelty, could we find another reason for today’s public holiday?). What I love most is that many of them revolve around hosting picnics or barbecues with friends where everyone brings something delicious to share.…

Chorizo & Bean Quesadillas – #whippeduplastminute

Feeding your friends when they come round for movie night no longer has to involve an expensive amount of take out. Because honestly, who truly has the budget for that anymore? Especially in this economic climate! But you also don’t want to spend ages putting something together, you want fast food so you can actually enjoy your girls night in…

Chocolate Fondants #whippeduplastminute

When you’re nursing a broken heart, you need one thing: chocolate. Ok sure in an ideal world, you’d also want the person who hurt you to realise that they made the wrong decision… but let’s be real, YOU’RE TOO GOOD FOR THEM! So stuff them, because you’re in a relationship with these chocolate fondants now. They only take a few…

Omelette #whippeduplastminute

Ok so here’s your dilemma: there’s an attractive person in your bed and you’d like to make a good enough impression the morning after that they might call you again. But of course, you’re strapped for cash so a fancy brunch out is not on the cards – plus, they might not want to be seen in public all sleep…

Pasta Carbonara – #whippeduplastminute

Knowing what to cook for someone you’re dating the first time you invite them over can be SO daunting. You want to impress them without going overboard and stressing out over complex, expensive or time consuming recipes. I think carbonara is perfect – it shows off a small amount of technique while also being budget-friendly and you can have it…

Unicorn Biscuits

Unicorn Biscuits

I am OBSESSED with sprinkles and any excuse to add them into my baking is found… because if something is dotted with a pretty rainbow of colours, it’s just that much more fun to eat! These unicorn biscuits are incidentally egg free, making them ideal for events where you might encounter someone with an egg allergy. (Egg allergies are common…

Why should you learn to cook?

Why should you learn to cook?

Quite often, I hear people who can cook tell other people that if you can read, you can cook. In fact, it’s one of my mum’s favourite sayings. And in theory, it should be that simple. After all, recipes are just a set of instructions you follow to create delicious food. But for some reason, there are lots of people…

Where is the tomato really from?

Where is the tomato really from?

When we think of Italian ingredients, the very first thing that comes to mind is tomatoes. But tomatoes aren’t exactly Italian… in fact, they’re not even from the European continent at all. No, tomatoes are considered a ‘new world’ ingredient – they’re from the Americas and weren’t known to Europeans until they sailed across the Atlantic. (It unfortunately still needs…
