Savoury Taco Cheesecake

The first time I ever tried a savoury cake was when I was like eight years old.

(Well, that’s if you’ll exclude the many savoury muffins I went through at dinnertime when I was little!)

It was a savoury cheesecake with an oatmeal crust (please remind me to create a vegan version of that because it was SOOOOOOO good!). Continue reading “Savoury Taco Cheesecake”

Breakfast Stuffed Cinnamon Roll in a Bowl

Sad story:

I’ve never seen cinnamon buns sold in New Zealand (except for the cheapo ones from the supermarket bakery).

Even sadder story:

“Wait – coodles? What the heck are ‘coodles’?”

Well, let me tell you. You’ve probably caught onto the craze of “zoodles” (if you haven’t, I’ll forgive you – zoodles are zucchini noodles. Spiralised zucchini that looks like noodles.)

Wait – I haven’t seen any butterflies this autumn.

Oh wait – yes I have; banana butterflies. On top of my oatmeal.

“Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn” Power Bowl (AKA Super Salad)

The graphics room at school was where this power bowl was drafted.

Yes, drafted.

You see, the assignment was to create the front cover for a comic book using perspective lettering. One of my friends made “Fantastic Frank” and another made “Gerry the Giraffe” but me, I did “Super Salad.”
