I'm back to cookies! It's been some time. I love making cookies because they make such an easy gift, and since it was a good friend's birthday a few days ago, it seemed like a perfect excuse to
eat cookie dough give a heartfelt homemade gift.

It's been a bit difficult finding inspiration lately. My mind's kind of been bouncing off everywhere and not really focusing in anything. I've been baking, but only tried and true recipes that I've made before. I hadn't tried anything new for a while.

Where oh where has September gone?
My blog now has abandonment issues. The last few weeks have been crazy, but if you asked I actually wouldn't be able to pinpoint exactly why. Just a combination of work, multiple uni assignments and admittedly a little loss of my blogging mojo. It wasn't until I flicked back to my earlier posts that I realized in four days, I would have had this blog for exactly one year. One year! Seriously, where's the time gone?

[Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen was our August 2013 Daring Bakers' hostess and she challenged us to make some amazing regional Indian desserts. The Mawa Cake, the Bolinhas de Coco cookies and the Masala cookies - beautifully spiced and delicious!]

QUICK REMINDER: If you live anywhere in Australia and you haven't yet entered my Undiet Cookbook Giveaway,
It's always interesting when you move to a new country that speaks the same language as you, but seemingly in an entirely new way. I'm still slightly amazed that after five years in Sydney, my own American-influenced English hasn't changed a bit, and I'm often told by old friends and family (in almost accusatory tones) that I still sound the same. I have, however, learned to adapt locally where necessary. For example, data (day-ta) became dah-ta, and scones (rhyming with 'own') became sco-h-nes (rhyming with 'on'). If you've followed me for a while, you'll probably also notice spelling discrepancies - I realized while editing this post that I switched between 'favorite' and 'favourite' about four times. Once out of Australia, however, my habits slip back to what it used to be. Maybe some subconscious part of my mind is just adamant against change?
