Cherry and Coconut Muffins

By: Susan Joy

These delicious, easy cherry and coconut muffins are moist and soft with a light almond flavour. I’ve made them with fresh cherries but frozen whole cherries can be used. The muffins were my hubby’s idea after we were gifted a large box of fresh local cherries. I know he was pleased with what I created as I found the empty container.

All-Purpose BBQ Seasoning

By: Susan Joy

An All-Purpose seasoning to add flavour to a plain piece of meat with no effort. It’s not only delicious sprinkled over meat, chicken and fish but try it sprinkled over your cooked eggs or an omelette. By making your own seasoning, you miss out on the anti-caking agents and flavour enhances added to so many store-bought seasonings. Use organic herbs and spices where possible.

Christmas Snowballs

By: Susan Joy

These snowballs are a quick and easy festive treat. I’ve used cacao butter with just a little coconut oil to give a delicious white-fudge flavour. Maple syrup or honey can be used as the sweetener but my preference is 100% maple syrup as honey can tend to overpower other flavours. The cacao butter will help hold your snowballs together during our warm Aussie Christmas but it’s still best to serve them straight from the fridge.
