Vespa obsessed

A little while back you might recall me mentioning that I spent one very hot weekend on a two-day motorcycle rider training course. Why you might ask? Well, as I’d rather keep A Sweet Muddle a place to share positive things, let’s just say that I’d been a little frustrated by our public transport system […]

Decadent chocolate fondants

  For all my UK friends, if you’re not already in the know, this week is officially National Chocolate Week.   This helpful fact would probably have been more useful had I shared it with you at the beginning of the week, but I’ve been busy moving house, which has kept me out of the […]

World Egg Day

Happy World Egg Day everyone! Yes, you did hear correctly.  Today is World Egg Day, an annual, international celebration falling on the second Friday of October. To mark the occasion, I thought I’d whip up some homemade mayonnaise.  Trust me when I say, once you’ve tried making your own, you’ll never bother buying the ready […]

Sweet and salty fudge balls

 Follow my blog with Bloglovin With summer just around the corner, and the run of indulgent sweets on the blog of late, I thought I’d try and share something with you this week that is not only is a little decadent, but is also good for you (in small doses).  It’s not as impossible as […]

Sweet strawberry galettes

I can’t tell you all how excited I am by the abundance of strawberries at the moment here in Sydney.  I love strawberries.  What’s even better is that they actually taste like strawberries.  Real strawberries.  Delicate, sweet and juicy (unlike the ones you pick up in the supermarket during the off seasons). And even better […]

It begins with one step

There was a time not so long ago when I used to love to run.  I got a little obsessive about it.  If I didn’t go for a run at least four times a week, I would start to get restless.  I would plan my social life around it.  Then one day, I just stopped.  […]

Melting Moments - A Sweet Muddle

Melting moments – a taste of sunshine

I think I may have jumped the gun in my last post.  Rather than basking in the summer-like sunshine of late, I spent yesterday holed up indoors, sheltering from the torrential rain with my winter woollies out again for (hopefully) one last hurrah. Perhaps it’s the feeling of restlessness from being cooped up inside on […]
