The Best First Sicilian Dish Ever

Hi guys! Miss me? Well.. if you did, can you keep it up, miss me for maybe 2 or 3 more days? Because then I can finally tell you why I have been all over the place (literally)!

For now, enjoy this delicious guest post by Hanna Johnson! And yes, it is a recipe (finally, am I right??)
If any of you are living in Australia at the moment, you will know that 

  1. The cold is causing us to lose toes and fingers. Am I the only heater-obsessed person at the moment?
  2. With cold, comes major warm food cravings!

CCU Undercover: Millone’s Ristorante & Bar

Please donate to the Nepal Region Earthquake Appeal. I don’t think I need to give a reason why, and if you haven’t already done so, what are you waiting for? It doesn’t need to be big, just come from the heart. Everything counts.

If I have learnt anything in my life, it is that Italian food offers the greatest source of comfort food, out of any other cuisine. I don’t know if it just me, but when it is wet, gloomy and I need some serious food hits, Indian curry or Asian noodles are not satisfying enough.

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 😀

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!

Out Of My Control

Ok so I actually had a really cool post planned out for you today, halfway written and everything 😀

Then, you will never guess, half way through writing BAM the computer froze and came up with some weird message. Not good… but then at the bottom I saw an ‘auto recovery angel’ and I just about kissed my computer!

After a quick reboot, I was still grinning to myself.
