The final product: Chicken Burrito bowl

Experimental Kitchen: Chicken Burrito Bowl

So I saw this Buzzfeed post recently about copycat recipes from chain restaurants and decided to make a chicken burrito bowl for one seeing as my other half was at Oktoberfest.

Now I haven’t been to America, but I figured that since people want these recipes, they must be good!

Experimental Kitchen: Mojito

This is a different kind of Experimental Kitchen because I didn’t find this recipe, rather was taught it by the experts šŸ™‚

Of all the cocktails, I enjoy a good Mojito because it’s fresh, tasty and when made correctly, delicious!

It may not look like much, but boy was it tasty!

Experimental Kitchen: Broiled Banana Splits

My first question here was, what is ‘broiled’?? Turns out, it’s not so hard!

Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to take pics of this because I made it while we had guests, but I can guarantee that it’ll be yummy! It’s also quick to make and a party pleaser.

Makes 7 servings.


4 bananas (or more, if you have large serving bowls – in this case, 1 banana per person)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 tbsp melted butter (I don’t have a microwave so I melted the butter in a pan)
Raspberries and/or Strawberries
Frozen Yoghurt/Ice Cream of your choice


1. Pre-heat the oven at about 150 degrees celcius and if using frozen fruits, defrost now.
2. Halve the bananas lengthwise.
3. Mix the sugar and pinch of salt.Ā Optional: you can mix in someĀ cinnamon as well.
4. Brush the bananas with the melted butter and sprinkle with sugar mix.
5. To broil the bananas: Wrap the bananas in foil and put into the oven for about 3 minutes.
6. Serve the bananas with the raspberries/strawberries (I used both!) and top with a scoop of ice cream/frozen yoghurt. Additionally you can add shaved chopped chocolate and nuts, or just make a dessert bar so everyone can customise their banana split!


Ta da! Chewy, delicious anzac cookies!

Experimental Kitchen: Anzac Cookies

This one is for next year, or just whenever you want something yummy to snack on! I actually baked these on Anzac Day (for a bit of home) and used themĀ as a dessert, served with vanilla ice cream and creme brulee ice cream. They turn out a bit chewy which is awesome.

Makes approx. 20 cookies.
