Lemon Meringue Diced Mango Pie

This months Daring Bakers challenge is lemon meringue pie. This has been one of my all time favorite desserts since i was young. It was great to get a chance to make it for myself. I added some diced ripe mangoes steeped in lemon juice to the lemon curd.I think this gave it an extra kick to this sassy lemon meringue pie!

Homemade Apple Pie

I used a variety of apples...fuji, golden delicious and galas. I think a variety of apples gives the pie a richer flavour. Top the slice with chantilly cream...what could be more satisfying?

Chocolate Banana Custard Tart

I've been hooked on making tarts , pies, quiches for the past few months. I love the way you make pastry from scratch it either becomes a great dessert or savory dish. This tart was surprisingly easy to make it has bananas on cocoa dough and chocolate custard baked together and topped with whipped/ sour cream. Yummy end to a good dinner.Raspberries wouldve also made a delicious tart....


This was my first time making Pavlovas. I decided to make them individually sized instead of one huge serving.Delicious, light and airy. Pavlovas are a great Australian invention made for the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova on one of her visits to Australia.It has since become an easy and low cal dessert ( low fat whipped cream) to make.There are also many variations with the fruits and sauces that we can decorate on top of this dessert.
