Topsy Turvy Australia Day

A little bit of a twist on the most delicious traditional treat Australians have shared with the world. Who would have thought spongecake, chocolate and coconut would be such a magical combination?

An Australian, that’s who 🙂

The spongecake is dense, but soft and rich, and when it melts onto your tongue along with the white chocolate, you melt right with it – just like any dessert should make you!

Basically, I know you all have met Annie from Unrefined Veganand she organises and oversees everyone in a long chain of bloggers all sharing vegan recipes!

‘Catch Me If You Can!’

So you may all remember that I posted up a lovely little salad recipe a little while back and introduced you all to the very essence of what it is to be a uni student. In terms, of course, of the fact that we are perpetually starving 24 hours a day (or however long we actually are at uni :P)

Well, since this is part of Ala @Wallflour Girl‘s fantastic link up part for all #undergradstudentbloggers and #gradstudentbloggers, we also have a new theme for each time we post up!

I am guessing the title is giveaway enough so let’s see if you can indeed keep up with this part of the student blogger series 😀

And So Ends The 2014 World Cup…

What a match.

What a thrill.

What an honour to watch two teams go head on to bring home the glory.

Is it not heartbreaking, that only one team can win?

Honestly, without the dulce de leche oozing gently out of my alfajores, I don’t know how I would have made it through all that stress!

This morning, at 5am Sydney time, I was huddled in a blanket, surrounded by an overdose of testosterone, watching Argentina play Germany in the FIFA world cup finals of 2014. I wasn’t waiting for the sunrise, or passing time due to my insomniac tendencies, but genuinely hauled my butt out of bed at 4:30 in the morning, solely for the game.

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.

CCU Undercover Diary: Patisserie New York

CCU was ecstatic. Alicia Key’s ‘Empire State of Mind’ was pumping through her mind as she took bite out of, bite out of, bite out of each delicious creation placed in front of her.

With her cape flying behind her, she sugar rushed up, up and away… all the way to the delights of New York…

In Vogue: Coconut Oil

Hi Everyone,

I actually have quite a special treat today. Allow me to introduce to you all Ms Mishka Thomas, a free lance writer who contacted me a couple of weeks back with a fantastic coconut oil article. Being one of the unhealthiest and more indulgent style of blogs, I was thrilled to be able to twist things around for you guys by adding a little something healthy. PLUS, any baker or cook out there will tell you that these days, coconut oil is totally vogue! So without further ado, I hand over to Mishka who will enlighten you all on the benefits of coconut oil 🙂

And then of course there is a recipe waiting ;)…

Unable to Write…

Hi…. You may be wondering about the title. Well really quite self-explanatory if I do say so myself. After this little postscript you will not be hearing from me today, though I had such a fun post planned! You see, I have spent my entire weekend trying to write up an essay which is doing a good job of kicking my butt. Big time.

That is way too many hours spent frantically trying to piece together non-existent analyses of texts and failing at it. Still. But because of that I just want to forget all words and simply show you lots of visuals 🙂
