Genevieve has just started in product development for cooking products as a product evaluator. She hails from Samoa where her mother owns her own catering business and with a food science background we’re expecting big things! Anyway over to Genevieve and her heirloom recipe: “There is something about brownies that makes me go gaga over them and lose all my willpower. Throughout the years I have come across different chocolate brownie recipes but always with the uncertainty of how well they would turn out. Alas I found two “absolute best” brownie recipes in my opinion and upon noticing they had a cream cheese version I knew this was the one! To suit my taste preferences, I used Whittaker’s Mocha chocolate with 70% cocoa as I wanted to use this opportunity to incorporate a coffee flavour into my brownies —but you’re welcome to use any chocolate flavour you prefer. -- 1.

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes It happened again. I had one of my cupcake visions. And I couldn’t shake it. I kept thinking about these cupcakes, constantly, even dreamed about them multiple times. And much like the last ones, the only way to stop obsessing was to hunker down and make them. So I did. What’s odd about this is I don’t usually like lemon-flavored sweets. And you know what?

You know those days when you’re in desperate need of sugar and you’ve already downed more gummy vitamins than recommended while seriously considering how many more you can ingest without causing severe harm to your internal organs? Well… in that case you should make some homemade snickers bars. And I KNOW you know what I’m talking about. I spent the majority of my pre-pubescent and adolescent years scheming just how I would be able to steal my brothers’ Halloween candy. Then I went through a SERIOUS phase of those Snickers ice cream bars. And that you can eat a million of them. These days, it’s rare that I crave actual candy, often preferring some chewy cookies or super rich cheesecake or a bar of amazing chocolate that costs thrice as much as the recent organic meyer lemons I purchased. They are the peanut butter to my jelly. The salt to my pepper. The broccoli to my… wait, no. But now Nikki is like my bestest friend ever. nougat layer
