Muffins/Cupcakes

The Big V Day Musings

This recipe isn’t necessarily just for Valentines Day. I mean, as much as I hate to admit it, not everyone holds the capacity to eat a whole batch of cupcakes. No, not even me. But if you are one person, and you can make two moist, chocolatey cupcakes with just enough frosting to decorate it AND spoon the extra, why make any more?

The sweet, berry-filled frosting combined with the delicious richness of the cupcakes really does take these to a whole new level. If you are making them for Valentines Day though, I worn you. You might not be able to share it with your soul mate… legit. If they aren’t your soul mate, I wouldn’t even consider sharing them.

Consequence of Nostalgia

Alright, so I admit, I know a lot of you are a wee bit older than I am, so you might think I do not have the right to be nostalgic yet! And I do totally understand where you are coming from!

I mean, just the other day, I heard some random, overdressed twelvies in the city, complaining about how they wish their weekends weren’t so busy, full of netball, then dance class and then GOD FORBID, yet another party. Where is the time to do your maths timetables homework? 😛

More Gold Than Green…

It feels like Australia Day is never ending this year. Why?

Because the hot, sweltering barbecue-eating, beach-swimming, singlet-wearing weather I associate with it is just not seeming to end! I cannot get over how golden the sun is.

And how hot the temperatures are, by Odin, by Thor, by Jupiter, by every ancient god ever, DAMN… it is hot.

Merry Christmas!

When friends come together, when family stays over and when there is a certain magic in the air as you hear ‘Love Actually’s’ soundtrack played on repeat in every store.

When snows falls in the north and the sun blazes in the south, when the summer solstice and winter solstice collide and when the songs of birds sound more melodious than ever.

When gift wrapped presents glint under trees, when Santas sell candy canes, furniture or booze and when many a Rudolph decorate the lawns of suburban houses.

Belated… Everything…

Hiiiiiiiiii… you… *hits you virtually on the shoulder lightly*

*awkward silence*

Ok, so maybe my keyboard is having a little trouble working… or have my fingers just gotten out of practice in blogging?

Fine, you wrenched the truth from me, it is the latter. Gosh guys, can’t you give me anything? You still love me right?

Guest Post: Little Bertha’s Cupcake Secrets

I am so sorry for my erratic posting lately and randomness over the past couple of weeks, but sweeties, it is only going to get worse from here. You see, once upon a time there was a little girl. She had to write the equivalent of 4-5 essays in 3 hours, 3 essays in 2 hours and worry about the question, because it could have been any topic in her courses. She has to listen to a foreign language for 1/2 and hour and be able to perfectly translate it, then write a slightly analytical answer. She has 2 weeks and one day of this, then she has to speak to a stranger who speaks said-foreign-language perfectly.

Ooft.

Oh, and little girl didn’t even get started on having to learn about the lymphatic system’s role in the immune response…

Hello everyone! I’m Carla, from eat sweet. by carla sue. I just wanted to say a big thank you to Uru for allowing me to do a guest post for Go Bake Yourself! I actually emailed Uru to ask her how to ‘apply’ (hehe) to become a guest poster on her blog, and she told me that there were no applications necessary and she would put me on the list! I love following Go Bake Yourself (so many great recipes, all the time!), and Uru is such a wonderful supporter of my blog.

HALLOWEEN!

We’re all friends. I mean look at us, hanging around, doing whatever, watching the ridiculously scary new Pretty Little Liars episodes on a usual Saturday night.

All good fun, no problems, lots of food and a great night.

That is how hanging out with friends usually is, honestly, don’t get me wrong. But on Halloween, things start to happen. It usually starts with ‘something evil lurking in the dark’, and then when you turn around, ‘you see a sigh that almost stops your heart’
