Chocolate Lace Crisps

You snooze, you lose! Unless you’re a cat and you have unlimited time all day to snooze and do other things that you like. Unfortunately the rest of us are running to a tight schedule. Cooking in-between exams! Some are of the opinion that you should post-pone extracurriculars during exam time but I’m of the firm…

T2 Tea House Macquarie

With my sensitive disposition towards coffee, over my lifetime I’ve developed a severe addiction to tea. Of any blend, of any flavour. A light, fruity iced sensation in the warmer months, or a hot, fortifying and steaming cuppa when the winter chill bites. With milk or without, I love the variety of different teas that…

Cheese & Chive Scones

There is only one word to describe how I feel today, and that’s ‘Owwwwwwwwwwwwwww!’ I went indoor rock climbing yesterday. I think the last (and first) time I had ever been indoor rock climbing was at a primary school friend’s party. You know, one of those kid’s parties with the jelly snakes, plastic plates, paper…

Chocolate Chunk & Raspberry Cookies

You know that feeling. It starts with the slight fidgeting, the inability to concentrate on any one thing. The sigh of frustration for no reason in particular. Then the snappiness starts when someone is being just a little irrational or annoying, then the growing niggling sensation, the craving. The hunger. CHOCOLATE. For us ladies, you…

Jam Drops for Angel Flight

‘How do you possibly have the time to bake all of those things??’ I got asked this question again today at uni by some friends who follow my blog. It’s probably the most common food-related question I get asked, after ‘What are you going to bake next?’ or ‘When are you bringing me some?’ To…

Apple Cinnamon Tea Loaves

So I recently have been craving apple and cinnamon teacake and I did a search on Taste.com.au to look up some recipes. I found it quite funny that for one of the recipes, it stated to stew some apple slices, then arrange it on a pre-bought teacake! What an absolute laugh. Now I’m all for…

Chocolate & Passionfruit Melting Moments

Cooking for me is something I do for the soul; it’s almost a form of therapy for me. I’m not the best baker or home chef out there, that’s for certain, but when I’m stressed, upset, happy or just in need of something to do with my hands, I cook. There’s something about being absorbed…

Raspberry & Almond Scone

And after a couple of days of miserable, grey weather, the sun has decided to grace us with its presence, fortunately on my day off 🙂 While I already had planned to make macarons today (luckily it wasn’t raining today; humidity + macarons = disaster!), I also felt like rustling up something a little more…

Lemon & Poppyseed Syrup Cake

I hope you’re having a good weekend, lovers! It’s a grey and dreary day today, it’s disappointing that winter is officially here at last… But the good thing about winter? Boots, winter coats, hot chocolate and baking! Now that’s got to perk up any cold rainy day 🙂 I actually made macarons today, which turned…
