  1. That dessert looks so yummy, warm with custard yuuuummmm

  2. Great pics, Tania. Yes, the upside down cake looks delish!
    Broccoli - we are not big eaters of it but Bri and I do like Broccoli & Cauliflower cheese bake (just a white cheesey sauce).


  3. I agree the dessert looks so tummy-warming! I just got given a whole bag of grapefruit this morning..I reckon juicing them is the way to go..fresh grapefruit juice with dinner is terrific!

  4. Your home and garden must smell wonderful!

    Another great post.
