Time for sharing. Recipes for a great Easter.

Easter is a great opportunity to take the time to unwind with friends and family. If the weather co-operates,

sharing a bite together outside is always a pleasure. If you’re at home or away for the holidays, we’ve got two delicious recipes, one savory, one sweet. Both are designed for sharing and are sure to please.

Al Brown’s Kahawai Ceviche with Spiced Creamed Corn

“I love to make this for informal gatherings. Ideally, we use fish we’ve caught fresh! Either way, it’s delicious with a crisp glass of wine as part of a relaxed lunch at home or at the bach”.

The Confectionist’s Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

“ A delicious, sweet treat that makes a change from chocolate eggs! This recipe from The Confectionist is great anytime of the year, but perfect to bring out with a pot of tea or coffee for all”.

Jackie Ashley


1.5 cups of all-purpose flour 
2 cups of rolled oats 
1 teaspoon of baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon of salt 
1.5 cups packed brown sugar 
1/2 cup softened butter 
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
2 large eggs 
1 cup chocolate chips 
1 cup of Confectionist’s Dark Chocolate & Almond Toffee Shards 


  1. Preheat the oven to 180c. 
  2. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. 
  3. Combine softened butter and brown sugar in a large bowl and whisk until lighter in colour & smooth. 
  4. Add the dry flour mixture into the wet mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. 
  5. Add chocolate chips and Toffee Crumbs, stir until well dispersed. 
  6. On a lined baking tray, roll cookie dough balls to desired size and place on tray. Flatten slightly and top with another toffee shard (optional). 
  7. Bake for 10-13 minutes - do not over bake! The cookies may not look 'done' but they will be perfect when cooled. Cool on wire racks & enjoy!  


When sharing time together, set the tone with your choice of scent. A bit of fragrance can instantly relax the mood. Be it a spritz of Power House, or the ficker of Waxed Perfume, or the bounteous Waxed Perfume XL. And for cleanup, turn to the reliable duo of Insink and Benchpress. Perfect all-rounders, biodegradable and reliable, Benchpress provides the spray, Insink brings the bubbles.

Here’s to a relaxing Easter!
