FSO - Sweet Tooth

I have a few days off work so decided to drive down to Taranaki to see my favourite little guy (and his mother and father, of course).

I took these first few shots last weekend.  My sweet tooth kicks in at breakfast when I drizzle passionfruit jam over my banana and cereal.  You have to give me credit for the cereal and banana.  

And I also deserve points for not wasting the jam which is just a bit more liquid than it should be and not good jam consistency.  But look at that lovely colour and it is soooo yummy!


If I'd had toast for breakfast I would have had honey on it.  Delicious Kaiora honey from Kaitaia.

Just to see it dripping like that makes my mouth water.

Here in my daughter's home in Taranaki, the sweet temptations are many.  Justine has a little cupcake business and it's no surprise her treats are in such high demand.  I was eating with my eyes before she even finished icing these.

This morning  there's mainly crumbs left from last night's lemon merengue pie.

The weather here is lovely.  I look forward to five days in the Naki.  And to checking the rest of the FSO team's contribution here for the topic Sweet Tooth.


  1. I am glad you have this time...but so glad I am not with you. Way too much temptation for me to stay healthy. That jam, though, has me intrigued. What kind? Homemade?

  2. You are right, Tabor. Way too many temptations! The jam is homemade from the passionfruit that grow outside my kitchen windown. I stuffed up one batch somehow and it is a bit too thin to spread properly. But just as yummy! :)

  3. Do you make your own passion fruit jam? I've never seen any here but it sounds delicious.

  4. One thing about home made sweets, for me, is I can make them sugar free. Your sweets are tempting and your photography is getting better all the time.

  5. Passion fruit jam sounds and looks delicious, I don't think I ever tasted it. I like jam with cheese on toast...

  6. I'm reading this before dinner and I'm getting worried because there is no dessert planned. What to do!!!?
