Vintage Guitar Scene: 1962 Gibson ES-175D

February 6, 2019 Martin Cilia

I’d been quietly looking for one of these guitars for years and was very happy to find this one. It’s a great sounding and playing Gibson ES-175D which was made late 1961/early 1962.  It has 2 excellent sounding PAF pickups and is from what is considered the holy grail period of 175s. […]

Recipe Scene: Ferrero Rocher Brownies

January 30, 2019 Kate Delbridge

I’m very keen on Ferrero Rochers – chocolate and hazelnut, what’s not to love? This is a really nice brownie recipe, that I stir Ferrero’s through to make it even more decadent and delicious. I think you will find yourself quite popular if you make a tray of this. […]

Recipe Scene: Persian Love Cake

January 23, 2019 Kate Delbridge

This is a super easy version of this beautiful cake, recipe from taste.com.

This recipe however is really quick, as you just throw everything in. It still retains the essence of the traditionally prepared cake, but takes half the time to prepare. […]

These Greek almond shortbreads, drenched in icing sugar, are one of my favourites. The recipe is very straightforward, however they are a little time consuming to make, depending on how pedantic you want to be with getting all the crescents to look the same.  Also they can make a bit of a mess due to all the icing sugar, and the need to work fairly quickly once they come out of the oven.  Despite this they are well worth the effort.  Give me a cup of coffee and plateful of these and I’m a happy woman.  […]

Recipe Scene: Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies

November 14, 2018 Kate Delbridge

I found this recipe on David Lebovitz’s blog. He has many delicious-looking recipes there, but this is the only one I’ve made so far. The brownies are very rich and super delicious. David made his own caramel which of course you can do, however they taste just as good if you use a store bought caramel sauce or dulce de leche. […]
