Pumpkin s'mores cheesecake is the elegant spin on the typical pumpkin pie. It's light and airy, yes with the graham cracker crust that gives that spicy tang that you get from the good old pumpkin pie. I remember I made my very first pumpkin pie a couple years ago and that version went straight into the dustbin. This cheesecake in fact is absolutely yumm and it's certainly one I'll be making again and again!

Pistachio orange bundt cake is a beautiful subtle spiced cake with hints of pistachio and orange. I absolutely love the texture of this cake. The nutty flavors just add such a grainy yet light spring to this delectable mini bundt cake. The frosting is undeniably perfectly tangy and breaks the too much sweetness overall.

Banana peanut butter cinnamon buns are one of my favorite combo's combined. Cinnamon rolls are my absolute favorite thing to eat, besides peanut butter...So what is better indeed than to eat them together? Especially when you get to eat them with a creamy yet salted caramel sauce.

Chocolate caramel tart makes me think of the festive season that is ahead. I know a warmly baked pudding is something I would choose in this cold any day, but a sweet delectable chocolate caramel tart cannot be denied. It's made with a chocolate buckwheat base, slightly bitter caramel filling, topped with a dark chocolate ganache topping. I have been seeing some tarts on social media quite a bit and I have been craving this tart that I made a couple years ago. This tart is perfect for the mid-week slump and even my husband that is a fast food lover by choice said it was tasty. So I guess this tart qualifies as a cheat meal for the connoisseurs out there.

Matcha strawberry slices are the perfect balance between sweet creamy and a bit of matcha bite. I love these bars because they are not too overly sweet and can be eaten as a mid-morning snack. They are the perfect pick me up, thanks to a powerful hit of caffeine. These bars for any mama will be life changing!

Harvest breakfast tarts are a super easy breakfast alternative when you're just not feeling like oats. It takes ten minutes to prepare and is super delish and very healthy too. You can even use these tarts as a healthy dessert too, so it's def a win in my book!

Maple Roly Poly also is known as Rolpoeding in Afrikaans is one of my absolute favorite desserts since I was a little girl. Wheater this recipe is truly South African, it is one of the essential desserts from my South African core. Sunday afternoons post lunch we will have generous scoops of this delicious dessert with warm custard or cold cream.

Mocha Lamingtons are just unforgettably perfect for tea time, after dinner sweet spot or late munchie hour goodness. I absolutely love lamingtons, because like so many small bite size dessert it makes me think of my childhood days. These beauties were devoured after church alongside koeksisters, caramel tarts and milk tart. So many South African goodies that are in fact unforgettable and attached to my childhood memories.

Semolina Hotcakes roasted honey balsamic strawberries is certainly a twist on the old faithful pancake stack for Sundays. I spotted some strawberries at the farmers market and I can't say no to fresh produce, my fridge and husband can vouch for that. I made two recipes this past week, strawberry match slices and these unforgettable semolina hotcakes with honey balsamic roasted strawberries.

Prickly pear tapioca pudding is utterly amazing whether you decide to have it for breakfast or dessert. I actually ate this bowl of tapioca pudding with my son for breakfast and there was no complaining. It is light and subtly sweetened with juicy hints of prickly pear. I remember we ate these things so much as kids, all sliced up and cold from the fridge. My mother always said we shouldn't eat too much, but they were just too delish. Now I love to use these beauties in savory and sweet dishes.
