First Ever Blog Award + First Post Since School

Hello and so nice to be back on again, though admittedly I have only not posted for 3 days – seems like an eternity for me :P
Well I come back with very good news for you from all around + a very easy, quick and ultimately delicious recipe which you will wonder why you never tried before – trust me ;)

61. I am loving school – senior years = doing the subjects you want and although the workload is already quite intense, I am enjoying my histories very much thank you :D
And it was absolutely awesome to see my friends again after the summer, all ready and excited and a little hyper!

2. FoodBuzz sharing is once more working!!! Though mine will only be ‘opt[ed] in’ on weekends, it is so great to be seeing everyone’s wonderful posts again!

3. I have been awarded my first ever foodie award!!! I am expecting fireworks, party favours and perhaps a big Chinese dragon to celebrate, just because they are so awesome :P

The award I am honoured to receive was the Liebster Award. It was given to me by the wonderful Averil of Averil Gomes: The Cook, the Baker and the Clay Boy Maker :) – Her blog is an absolute must-visit with such a creative flare!

Standard Beautiful Explanation Of Award:

A Liebster Blog Award is given to talented bloggers who have less than 200 followers. “Liebster” is a German word that means “Dearest”, it also means ”Favourite”. So, in a way the award not only recognizes these bloggers as amazingly gifted in their own right but also as your very own personal favourites.

It is a right honour to be given this award – I feel so accomplished in the foodie world which I have entered and this award has given me so much encouragement to keep on going as I am on my blog! If I could toast with champagne I would so right now I will keep it apple and blackcurrant juice like they used in the play we saw today ;)

I would also like to thank all of my foodie friends who give up their time to read my recipes and blog posts as well as leave comments – your support means the world to me :D

Here are the rules to keep this award going:

  1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
  2. Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you.
  3. Copy and paste the blog award on your blog.
  4. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed. (Some say just 3 or more blogs of less than 200 followers each)
  5. Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment at their blog.

So now let me continue one of these most wonderful chains in the world by making someone else feel as absolutely fantastic as I did when Averil gave me the news – here are the beautiful blogs which I have chosen to recognise:

  1. Whipped Baking – Such a delicious blog with both sweet and savoury (though I think it is obvious which has the emphasis luckily!), she is most deserving and I adore going on her site!
  2. Professor Vegetable – I have been following this blog for a while and it is simply so unique – the recipes make me hungry and yet they are actually healthy (fantastic!)
  3. My Baking Empire – One of my first friends in the blogging world, never have I not wanted to immediately gobble up one of her recipes! She is so sweet therefore makes some of the best sweets!
  4. Elephant Eats – This lady is absolutely awesome – I took up so long going through her website it isn’t even funny – sophisticated but homely, you simply will love her recipes :D
  5. A Foodie’s Voyage – Last but not least, I recognise the wonderful Beccsie who’s blog only recently I joined and discovered – she is also a yr 11 student this year and so talented it makes my head spin (I am not jealous :P)

Congratulations to these gorgeous 5 blogger winners again!!!

I must work again soon and go exercise as well (shudders) so let me just tell you the wonderful creation I came u with today after a hard day’s work of watching an English play ;)

It was raining and pretty miserable (actually, it still is) so my friend, N, and I got talking about Macca’s sundaes. Their hot. fudge. chocolate. sundae. Cravings created. Need.

1Now a couple of days back I made this delicious hot fudge sauce recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe – I used all her ingredients but simply tossed them into the saucepan together on low heat instead of doing some at a time (because I am lazy like that :P) – 2 sundaes + 2 scoops of ice cream later (for the entire family naturally) we still had some sauce leftover so I refrigerated it for my convenience :P

Today I decided to make a grilled Nutella sandwich. With a twist. So it became a Nutella Hot Fudge Banana Sundae Sandwich. A little over the top? Definitely not.

I simply slathered slightly heated hot fudge onto one side of bread, Nutella on the other, added some banana slices, grilled it and then ate it – can you believe we were out of ice cream to go with it??? But the main recipe base is what is breath taking – as you can see, all gooey and warm and delicious! Here are some other awesome ideas to use for this simple piece of decadence:

  • 5Use chopped hazelnuts inside
  • Add strawberries or other fruit with/instead
  • Screw on top, stick in a skewer, put covered in freezer for 10 minutes, make up your favourite French toast batter and fry it that way
  • Use raisin or sweet bread instead (or even a croissant, but heated in a broiler)
  • Unlike me SERVE IT WITH ICE CREAM! Topped with more hot fudge and Nutella :P

3I shall see you next with a special link to a special guest post – till then mes amis!

Blog Signature
UPDATE: A lot of people are associating this sandwich with the legendary Elvis so here is a link to another recipe which I made with Elvis in mind ;)

UPDATE: This is also my dish for the World Nutella Day of tomorrow – I did base my Nutella Baking Week around it but this most certainly does not hurt! Click on the picture to take you to the fan base website and here is the facebook page link – Enjoy :D

  2. Hello! First, belated congrats on your award nomination! Secondly, your sandwich looks yummy! I use to make mine with peanut butter at times…I would call it the Pea-Nut-Ban-wich (Peanut Nutella Banana sandwich)! :) Looking forward to reading more of your blog!

    • Thanks so much :D
      The award and dessert both really made my day – thank you so much for your kind words (And I assure you, I will serve Nutella as long as I live ;))

      Cheers

    • Thanks so much :D
      And I promise, I am no senior snob – in fact I have been humbled down with the work :P
      Hope this Nutella sandwich makes up for your Nutella Day!

      Cheers

    • Thank you so much :D – and you 100% accurate – all you need are some extra sauce on top, caramelised bananas on the side and a huge scoop/2 huge scoops of ice cream on top ;)

      Cheers

    What a great accomplishment!! Sounds like your busy! This is definitely a sandwich that would go over REALLY well with my family…I love all of those ingredients & maybe I’ll make it my new post-workout meal :)
    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Congrats on the award and its great to have you back with another yummy and creative recipe, all the more with the fav of nutella. I have been an adult student before and its fun with meeting other adult students and learning at the same time.

    I remember during my younger days, we use to have ice-cream sandwiched between bread slices so, this recipe of yours brought back memories though the filling is different.

    • Thanks so much :D
      I am actually a student at high school, not an adult so that is something I am yet to experience ;)
      And I am loving this idea of ice cream between bread – it really would be a hot fudge sundae sandwich then!

      Cheers

  8. Congratulations on your award. Are you working on your masters or PHd? I have a mid term exam in one week in Chinese medicine acupuncture and what I am doing? You guessed it procrastinating and catching up on word press and drooling over you decadent sandwich.

    • Thanks :D – And I am a senior at high school actually so I haven’t gone to uni yet, let alone near a PHd :P
      Best of luck on your exams though – I am just like you i procrastination!

      Cheers

    Congratulations on your blog award! Glad to hear that you are enjoying being back at school. This grilled sandwich of yours should give you lots of energy to get through your classes :)

    Thank you so much for thinking of me for this award!!! I’m so flattered!! Food blogging is such a fun way to share recipes and love, so happy to be a part of it :) Your are such a sweetheart, look forward to sharing more recipes and stories with you!

    • Kristina says:

      I have a quick question though (this might sound really dumb….) I want to keep the liebster blog award going but I don’t want to offend any other bloggers! How do you know if they have less than 200 followers?

      • You are most deserving of this award my friend :D
        Congratulations!

        And as for the award, I didn’t follow the under 200 followers rule really, I just went through blogs with recent archives and a delicious spirit :) – have fun passing it on!

        Cheers
        Choc Chip Uru

      • Kristina says:

        thanks! That’s what I’m going to do too then :) And I completely forgot to congratulate you as well! You’ve got a delicious blog and I always love following your recipes :) So happy for you and your wonderful blog and award!!

    Congrats on your first blog award! Those nutella sandwiches look ah-mazing! I would switch up the bananas though because I don’t like eating bananas unless they’re on their own or frittered :D And I’m the kind that adds sauces to whatever I can, it’s more fun that way HEHE

    • Haha good to know you are also a bit of a sauce person :P – thanks for such a nice comment!
      And instead of bananas I definitely think you should try strawberries or even mango (frozen mango in nutella = amazing) :D

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

  12. Congrats on the award, very deserving! Glad you are enjoying getting back to school and seeing all your friends.
    The nutella sandwich is a good thing to eat on the go, I think even Elvis would be happy with this sandwich-yum!
