Cafe at home

This morning I made my breakfast as usual. I thought it looked quite nice and decided to share my breakfast around the internet.

Then I though, perhaps this might be a good photo challenge as everyone is unable to go out for meals.

Would you like to do a post about your Cafe at Home. Use the tag #cafeathome and do a pingback to this post. Let’s see what you have for breakfast, lunch or dinner today.

Here’s my breakfast. A BLT on a Pane di Casa with my own homemade tomato relish and a cup of coffee.

The Weekly Word Prompt: Holiday Treats

My daughter was supposed to come home today but has been delayed until Friday. We will be making one of our favourite treats….Florentines

A food blogger who I followed way back when and has since not blogged for a while, Bizzy Lizzy, put this recipe on her site. My daughter and I get together every now and then to have a bit of kitchen time together.

Here is Lizzy’s recipe



2 cups cornflakes, gluten free if preferred

1/2 cup sultanas

1 cup flaked or slivered almonds

100g dried pitted cherries (or cranberries)

1/2 cup caster sugar

100g unsalted butter

250g dark chocolate



Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C. Prepare a 1/2 cup muffin tray by placing large paper liners into the holes. Alternatively, place 15 paper liners onto a baking sheet. Combine the cornflakes, sultanas, almonds and cherries in a bowl and mix well.

Melt the butter and sugar in a small saucepan. (In one batch, I deliberately tried allowing the butter to caramelise slightly, for a yummy burnt butter taste. It was good). Add the melted butter/sugar mixture to the other ingredients and fold through, coating thoroughly. Spoon equal amounts into the paper liners. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a double boiler over a saucepan of simmering water. Drizzle the chocolate over the Florentines in zig zag fashion. Refrigerate and serve chilled, in or out of the liners. Makes 15 or so. Will store well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
