Pho | A Sweet Muddle

Pho goodness sake

Pho (pronounced Fuh) has to be one of my all time favourite soups.  It is full of fresh, clean flavours and while satisfying, a big bowl of this delicious Vietnamese noodle soup doesn’t leave you feeling like you’ve over indulged.  Best of all, this is one soup that you can slurp up come Summer, Autumn, […]

Cavenagh Bridge

A sojourn in Singapore

Not only does today mark the start a new calendar month, but it also marks the passing of the first half of the year… Is anyone else a little astonished by this fact?  Back when I was a child and summer holidays seemed to last a lifetime, I found it impossible to understand the bewilderment […]

Shakshuka | A Sweet Muddle

Shakshuka

There are certain words that I simply love the sound of. Onomatopoeia. Mellifluous. Libellula.  They’re the literary equivalent of a hearty dish or full-bodied wine.  A mouthful of sound that is both a pleasure to say and hear.  Which conveniently leads me to today’s post… Shakshuka. Go on, say it out aloud.  Shak-shu-ka.  Don’t you […]

Dorset apple cake | A Sweet Muddle

Dorset apple cake

I’ve baked a few apple cakes in my time and I have to say, I think this Dorset apple cake might just be my favourite. My sister first baked it for me about 10 years ago now when we were both living in England, using a recipe she found in her monthly subscription to UK […]

Parsley salad | A Sweet Muddle

Parsley salad

Together with the changing back of the clocks on the weekend, there has been a noticeable shift in the weather here in Sydney as the arrival of Autumn is becoming more and more evident.  We’re being greeted by cooler mornings and evenings however for the moment at least, the days still have a nice warmth […]

Hot cross buns | A Sweet Muddle

Hot Cross Buns

I hope you’ve been enjoying the Easter long weekend! I have a little Easter joke to share with you today, courtesy of my four year old niece… What do you get when you pour boiling water down a rabbit hole?  Hot.  Cross.  Bunnies. OK, so it’s corny (not to mention a little unkind to bunnies) […]
