Welcome to the third Fabulous Foodie Fridays party! Before we kick the party off we would just like to say a huge thank you to all of the bloggers that have supported our foodie parties so far! And if you are new to the party, then we’re so glad you could join our delicious little get together!
Last week we had so many amazing recipes! There is a serious amount of food blogger talent out there. In between drooling over all of the deliciousness, we were finally able to choose five of our favourite recipes each (trust us, it’s so hard to choose only five, especially when you’re highly indecisive at the best of times!). And so here are my picks…
After much deliberation, I couldn’t go past Little Wolff’s Dairy Free Coffee Crusted Quince Cheesecake as my favourite recipe. I mean come on, really!!?? It sounds amazing and looks so incredibly gorgeous. It would blow anyone away!
Meatless Monday’s have never looked as good as they do now with Inner City Stinge’s clever recipe for Baked Falafel and Eggplant and with Buttermilk Sauce. I can’t wait to try this one out!
It was all about winter comfort food for me this week and Fresh Home Cook gave me exactly that with her Organic Garden Vegetable & Three Cheese Risoni Bake. Healthy but also perfect for those wintery nights!
It’s no secret that I love all of Kate from Quitting the Quick Fix’s recipes (she balances out my sweet tooth!). I absolutely love her Dairy Free Pumpkin Soup and am planning on making it this weekend and serving it with a big crusty bread roll!

Chocolate Weet-Bix Slice recipe…
When we were growing up my brother would always eat Weet-Bix for breakfast, whereas I was never a big fan. I hated how the Weet-Bix would go all mushy in the milk… yep I was pretty fussy even as a kid! But I have changed my mind after eating this Chocolate Weet-Bix Slice! It’s soooo far from mushy, it’s not even funny! It’s delicious, chewy and oh-so-good.
This recipe will be an absolute winner with kids and because all of the ingredients are pantry staples, you won’t even need to make a trip to the supermarket (which makes it a winner with adults too!).
The original recipe was from Super Food Ideas but I made a couple of little changes, including using melted chocolate in place of icing and also popping some Freckles on the top (just to make it look a bit cute… because we all know that pretty food tastes better). Hehehe!
Oh and if you are a lucky-duck and have a Thermomix then scroll right down to the end of this post (underneath all of our awesome links) for the Thermomix instructions.
