“Where’s de sauce?”
If anyone else watches My Kitchen Rules, you’ll know what I’m taking about.
Every time a dish goes to the judges’ table, all I hear is Manu saying “where’s de sauce?” in his awesome french accent.
Well Manu, my golden syrup dumplings have LOADS of sauce!

For most people I know, maple syrup has been something they had when they were kiddies on their pancakes in the mornings. Well, not for this little chickie! To date, I’ve never tried maple syrup.
I was always under the impression that it was similar to golden syrup and frankly the taste of that is way to sugary for me.
I’ve never made crepes before either. I had them once, many years ago on an unusal and rare family outing to The Pancake Place at The Rocks in Sydney. I was alot younger then so there’s a strong possibility the magical feeling that a place which is open 24hrs and serves a variety of pancakes and ribs might just be a little girl’s fantasy. I still plan on going there again now that I’m older and alot more aware of my surroundings – most of the time.

Last week, my co-worker asked a simple question, “Would you use limes for anything?”
Would I! I started to rattle off all the things I could do with limes and cooking.
Turns out, my co-worker had a tree in her backyard that hadn’t produced fruit for as long as they had been there so they were never sure what kind of tree it was. Bonus for me, as they had no use for limes!
So, upon receiving this bag of limes I told her that I would make something from them for her and bring it to work for everyone.
Flicking through books and browsing websites, I settled on a Lime Chiffon Pie from my Women’s Weekly – Old Fashioned Favourites recipe book.
I started making the pie, put the base in the fridge and got to the point of cutting the limes to juice for the filling.
I cut it in half….and the inside is orange. As confused as I was, I still juiced it. I then took half of the “lime” out to my OH and asked him to smell it.
He smelt it.
Then he tasted it.
