It is winter, it is very cold, the school holidays are over (mixed blessing am I right?).
I occasionally get sent some lovely products to try so I though I might share a few of my favourite ones to help keep you inspired and cooking and baking throughout Winter.
- Macadamia Brittle and the Salted Caramel Peanut Brittle (with or without a chocolate coating) from The Australian Sweet Co. This delicious product was sent to me by a local Melbourne company who makes a very yummy and a little bit retro range of sweets. ” Traditional sweet making with a contemporary twist” is their moto and I don’t think you can go wrong buying locally made food from a family run business. Check out their website for more information.www. australiansweetco.com.au. As for me, I plan on bashing up some of their peanut brittle and mixing it through vanilla ice-cream for a very special and simple dessert. Yum!
- Royal Dolton Charlene Mullen mugs and plates. I don’t know why but I love them and I want them. Aren’t they gorgeous? To answer the obvious question, no I do not need any more mugs, but I really fancy myself sipping coffee out of these babies.
3. Of course beautiful new mugs requires beautiful tea. Harney & Sons Fine Tea is one of my favourites (I do have a few I must admit) and they have the most wonderful range. I used to be able to make my selection from Thomas Dux at the Glen Shopping Centre but they went and shut down their store. I am actually still a little devastated.
