Chocolate Meringues

March 5, 2011

Uni has started once again. It’s funny when it was the holidays I wanted school to start just to have something to do but now I want the holidays back just to have nothing to do.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

January 28, 2011

Sorry for the absence! You should know I am one of the worst people at multitasking. I can only concentrate and do one thing at a time in life and for the past couple of months that was uni and exams, then there was the family holiday and then straight after that I rushed off to archaeology field school. But now I am completely free and eager to bake and share recipes again! There has been a backlog of recipes I really want to try so lets get this blog up and rolling!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies (Frozen Dough)

June 19, 2010

Wow, it’s been a while since my last update! I’ve just been having exams and my timetable this semester has been the most intense one I’ve ever had (3 exams in 2 days anyone?), and knowing me I left studying to the very last minute and wasn’t able to find anytime to update. But I’m back! Kind of. I have one more exam on the 26th but that should be sweet, then I’ll be back with more time to do baking and photographing and writing and sharing =D

Here are some cookies that I did manage to bake during exams. The dough was made beforehand and the dough balls were frozen so they were a quick solution to freshly baked cookies while I was busy studying!

Wicked Chocolate Brownies

June 4, 2010

I was craving chocolate brownie the entire day. Throughout my lectures I daydreamed of the brownies fudgey warmness straight out of the oven and then washing the richness down with a glass of cold milk.

Wanting to taste what I had daydreamed sooner than later, I went straight to the kitchen when I got home and used the first recipe I saw: the one on the back of the flour bag.

I hardly ever use recipes on the back of bags. I don’t know why but I have this perception that they won’t be as good as the ones, for example, in cookbooks. It’s silly, I know and this perception needs to change.

Sugar Crusted Cookies

May 31, 2010

My aunty gave me a heap of cookie cutters for my birthday. She is all sorts of awesome. Let me tell you about her.

She loves animals, especially cats and dogs. She started up her own dog grooming business and also acts as a pet hotel. She adopts homeless cats and dogs too. Her house is so full of them, it’s crazy.

I only used the dog and cat shaped cookie cutters today…my way of showing her some love!

Chocolate Chip Cookies and White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

May 22, 2010

Nothing says I’m here for you like a batch of freshly baked cookies. Seriously, they’re like the universal sign of love.

My mom went to visit my brother last week and I took the chance to bake him some cookies for my mom to bring to him. He hurt himself preeeettyyyy badly.

Tore his Achilles tendon to be exact.

Twice to be even more exact.

Yup, he’s going to need all the cookie healing love he can get!

The Best Chocolate Cupcakes

May 16, 2010

My friend Donna and I celebrated our birthdays this week. We were born on the same day, isn’t that cool…we could totally be twins.

To celebrate reaching our 20′s (2 decades…hot damn!), I baked chocolate cupcakes for everyone. They were good. Very good. I wish I could give you some too…just promise me you’ll make some soon. You know, for birthday celebration sake. You’ll like them.
