Sydney Literary City Guide


A few months ago I discovered eatthispoem, a blog brimming with beautiful writing, photos and recipes. The lovely blog owner Nicole has started her own series of literary city guides which she describes as a travel resource for 'bookworms who love to eat' - which is me in a nutshell, isn't it? So seeing that she hadn't gotten one for Sydney yet I jumped at the chance to try my hand at writing a guide, and the result is now live. So head on over and make sure you check out all the other amazing cities as well!

Muar Chee


I had the best intentions and several blog posts lined up for December of last year, but somehow, they never got finished. Which is sad, really, because I had a shortbread recipe and a cupcake recipe that I made in preparation for Christmas that would have made great gifts, and I was going to share a recipe for gingerbread (and on making gingerbread houses) as well as strawberry shortcake that was part of my family's Christmas feast last year. I've been so busy lately though that it just hasn't happened.

Paleo Pecan Sandies

 

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.

Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins


So, what's the difference between this post and the last post I wrote? I have since finished another year at uni. 

Three down, two to go.

Marbled Chocolate Castella Cake


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.

1 Year of Blogging: Cinnamon Nutella Cake


Remember when I marked my first week of blogging? 

It has now been a year. My baby blog is a year old! Clearly, this calls for celebration. And true to my blog's namesake, I've got cake.

Sticky Banana, Walnut and Date Bread


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?
