About Choc Chip Uru

Hope you'll like it and get inspired =D Let's get some facts right before you start reading 1. Savoury is not really my thing - sorry! 2. I am obsessed with chocolate 3. I am currently on a challenge to find the perfect brownie, chocolate chip and banana bread recipe Welcome to 'Go Bake Yourself'

CCU Undercover: Candelori’s Ristorante e Bar

Have you ever been to a dessert tasting? Neither had I. Till Wasamedia (thank you so much!) invited me to one at one of Sydney’s up and coming Italian restaurants. To dine, blog and enjoy the company of others while in the vicinity of desserts that blow my mind.

Now, I want you to picture this – Italian Desserts. A wild and hungry CCU.

Hold me back, I says, hold me back!

Because after you see these desserts, you will see why I went a little crazy that night :D

Eat Drink Blog 2014: A Recap

I swear, what even am I doing… Is this site called ‘Go Review Yourself?’ Ugh, I wish I could apologise and say it is my fault for being lazy but I swear, between organising exchange, failing miserably to do well at my uni work (jokes, failing to DO my uni work) and in general social stuff, I haven’t the time right now to bake :'(

But this summer, HOO BOY, this summer, I have a list steadily building up… If you want food I suggest you drop by whenever you want at my place because baked goods aplenty, je te promesse! (FYI I probably conjugated this wrong or misspelt it :P)

But I have told you about Sofitel, I introduced you to Sake, but you still have no idea what went down in Brisbane right? That’s because there have been SO many photos to sort through that I haven’t been able to do it in a night :P

I went a little snap happy… hehe… hehehe… ANYWAY, deranged laughter aside, here is a little recap of one of the most exciting weekends  I have ever had!

Sake Restaurant & Bar, Brisbane

Notice how I didn’t put a ‘CCU Undercover’ in front of this? Well, that’s because it was more like an entourage of bloggers scouring out the restaurant and being all spy like – not obvious at all with our cameras and lack of eating as soon as the food arrived :P

After the Eat Drink Blog conference (whose photos I am STILL sorting through so pls. Bear with me :P), and just before my flight, I joined my new foodie pals on one last lunch time extravaganza :)

Who did I dine with? Well, the fabulous blogger/unofficial husband of mine, Vanny @Nessy Eater, the queen of photography and Instagram, Tammi @Insatiable Munchies and super bubbly/basically my twin Canberra blogger Eileen @The Food Avenue :D

Awesome sauce company am I right? Joined by awesome sauce food, as you shall see!

“Too Much Fun” Hangover

Just before I start, I really would appreciate a few guest posts for my exam period in November! Email me at gobakeyourself@yahoo.com.au if you are interested, I would LOVE to feature you all :D

************************

Ok lovely people, you know how my posts usually go on and on and on for days on end? This post is going to be like that because I. Am. Exhausted.

Beyond exhausted, keeping my eyes open is actually quite a feat right now. Not even kidding!

Why? Because I have just had my uni break (only a week, mind you!) and instead of catching up on all the work I promised myself I would, I have been the time of my life.

Hence the exhaustion.

Let’s see now, shall we? There was the visit to Three Williams to kick off the holidays. Back then, I was still like ‘I have a week to do all my assignments and readings, I will be fine!’ – Funny. I didn’t really start working till Saturday…

Jokes, Sunday. As in, two days ago. And now I am writing my post so you can see I have progressed far :P But anyways

CCU Undercover: Three Williams

CCU got off at the wrong bus stop. Typical. What else would you expect from a girl with a big reliance on google maps, a lack of direction and a stomach that had barely been fed since breakfast.

Huffing and puffing, but blowing down no houses, she marched up Elizabeth St. Then down it. Then up again… where was she going? Finally, her google maps gave her a little relief and started working again, leading her to the cafe.

Classically of course, she almost missed it. But that iconic symbol caught her thank GOD and she hustled her way down the steps and into the sweet smelling paradise.

CCU Undercover: Sofitel, Brisbane

CCU would like to believe that she was more than justified in splurging her savings on having a very pampered and luxurious stay at this hotel while up in Brisbane for the Australian Eat Drink Blog Conference. Of course, that is when she actually had the time to enjoy, as there was so much going on!

She could still remember the plush bathrobe, the silken sheets…

And here she was, back at home, typing away with an old ratty jumper and some tatty slippers on her feet..Why must the luxury life end????

CCU Undercover: Wild Pear Cafe

CCU sometimes overlooks the fact that in her sleepy, beautiful suburb, there is actually a lot of awesome cafes. She dreams of living in the big city, but just 10 minutes away, she didn’t realise there was a gem. God, she could be so blind sometimes!

That’s how she found herself on yet another sleepy, rainy morning, her whole family going to this cafe for Fathers Day! She was studying for exams, so unfortunately, she still owed her daddy baked goods, but until then, forcing her family to try this cafe wasn’t the worst way to go at all :)

Tell Me About JAG Australia?

 

Well, since you have asked, how could I possibly refuse right? Thanks to Garlos JAG , I was asked to try out their new service. JAG is one of the newest, most innovative ways of earning a few extra treats on the side for doing not very much.

The basic gist is: Earn points by watching advertisements. Keep earning those points till you have enough. And then BAM! Don’t get hit by a bus (Phoebe from Friends reference there if you got it!), but convert those points into gift cards!
