My guilty pleasure that I can't resist is tiramisu and it always tastes way much better homemade because you can modify the ingredients to your taste so I thought I would share my recipe for the delicious coffee dessert as well as my favourite way to make hot chocolate. Keep in mind these recipes serve 6 so it's perfect if you're having company over but definitely adjust the ingredients if it's just for yourself.

Last night I posted a picture of my dinner (veggie nuggies) to instagram and had so many of you ask for the recipe and how to make them so that's exactly what I'm doing! One of my favourite things to do is play around in the kitchen trying out/inventing healthy recipes and I absolutely love the way this one turned out so will definitely be making it in the future! This is a great source of vitamins, minerals and nutrients (from the vegetables) and protein (from the egg and LSA meal) but the best part is that it tastes like you're eating a deep fried nugget or something even though it's pretty much just baked vegetables. Keep reading to find out how to make these super delicious Veggie Nuggies.

This is one of my favourite baking treats ever! I love bananas and oats so I get to combine them both in this recipe to create a super delicious muffin!

Pink lemonade is a beverage that looks so beautiful and is perfect for any girly parties or to serve when you have your girls over. I always wanted to make pink lemonade and only recently found out how easy it was so thought I would share my favourite recipe with you! I tried a few different ways and found this recipe creates the best taste and colour!

Serves: 2.8 litres

1 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups superfine sugar
2 cups cranberry juice

Step #1-Bring granulated sugar and 1 cup of water to boil in a medium pan over high heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
Step #2- Add lemon juice, superfine sugar, cranberry juice and 1 1/2 quarts water to serving container. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Step #3- To serve, add ice cubes to fill a tall glass and garnish with lemon slices.

* You can add raspberry or strawberry essence to enhance the flavour.
* You could add a tiny bit of pink food colouring to enhance the pink colour.

So that's how easy it is to make this super cute and delicious girly drink!

Now I am not saying that this is a healthy recipe at all but it is an exciting way to get more broccoli into your diet! This is a recipe that has been in my family for years; my aunty and uncle own a bakery that I used to work at back in my early teens so the recipe is pretty much burned into my brain because of how many times I made it! Quiche is really simple but there's something about these measurements and proportions that makes it absolutely delicious and way better than any other I've ever tasted.

2 Shortcrust Pastry Sheets
1 Large Bunch of Broccoli, de-stemmed
5 Thick Bacon Rashers, cubed
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated 
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
3/4 cup Pouring Cream
Herbs and Spices
Salt and Pepper
4 free-range eggs

Step #1- Preheat the oven to 200°C and lightly grease a round quiche dish or tin.
Step #2- Fill your quiche dish or tin with the short crust pastry then bake for 15 minutes in the oven.
Step #3- Dice the bacon and cook it in a large non-stick pan on medium heat until golden and crispy. Cut the stems off the broccolini and whisk the eggs, herbs, spices, pepper, salt and cream together.
Step #4- Arrange half the cheeses and bacon in the base of the quiche dish then pour the egg and cream mixture over the top. Then sprinkle the broccolini on top and the other half of the cheeses.
Step #5- Bake for 30-40 minutes or until cooked through (use the skewer check). Leave out to cool for 20 minutes before cutting up and serving.

Tips & Info:
* You can use your own pastry! I actually encourage it because that's what I did at the bakery but for the sake of making it quick and easy, you can always use the pastry sheets from the frozen section.
* You can also add a bit of cottage or goats cheese for extra creaminess! Just make sure to add a bit less pouring cream so that the mixture isn't too moist.
* The use of multiple cheeses adds a more interesting and unique mix of flavours.
* It keeps in the fridge for about 5 days after baking or can last in the freezer for months.
