Getting S’more Out Of Life + Giveaway! (Closed)

Bonjour tout le monde, I am finally back! After a slew of incredible guest posts, it is nice to be back behind my screen typing away! And today, I feel a bit like Santa as well so throughout this post, I may be belting out HO HO HOOOOOO periodically! 😀

Now as you all know, the holiday season is quite literally looming on the horizon. The christmas wreaths adorn every corner of every shopping centre, along with giant trees dripping in baubles. Candy canes and advent calendars are all I see when I shop, and in every cafe, there are hunking pieces of christmas cake being sold, some so hard you could break your teeth.

Aaah… classic holiday season. 🙂

But the month of December, at least here down under, also means heat. Temperatures exceeding 40 degrees C (AC time anyone?) and humidity that wraps around you to almost suffocate you at times, till the rain comes down and washes it away for a few hours. But along with the heat, comes the summer holidays. And everyone knows summer holidays means going out, into said heat, and busting out the picnic table, the golden gaytimes, the cricket bats and the aeroguard protection.

I Had THAT Day…

BEEP-BEEP-BEEP-BEEP-BEEP-BEEP-BEEP!

I’m sorry, why the HELL, was my alarm going off, when I am on holidays? I think I could have cracked my phone, seeing as I was basically bashing the snooze button. At 5:30am in the morning (yes, uni, I give up a LOT for you…)

Holiday Post #1: Rocky Road

This week, I am cruising (quite literally) in the Caribbean, enjoying the Pirates (Jack!!!), the rum and the wonderful feeling of having every luxury designed by man at my fingertips 🙂

I can see the sunsets, the sunrises, in all their peachy glory and I despite writing this in advance, I already know that the atmosphere is making me giddy, while I drink my Pina coladas and what not 😉
But I will of course, tell you more when I come home!

At the same time, I refuse to neglect you all in the blogging world completely because I am holidaying it up in Barbados! I may not be commenting on your blogs, but I still want to share recipes that I made from ages ago, but never posted up. Since Christmas festivities are growing, and the mood is coming, I thought I would share the xmas sweets, the recipes to be given as gifts, or to leave out to Santa, because he is such a cutie-patootie!

Hope you enjoy them all! 😀

I do not know who invented this genius creation and thought ‘Hmm, let me mix things through melted chocolate!’ – simplicity equals genius, it is just so obvious here!

May the Fourth Be With You

Fourth? Force – Aaaah, the light bulb pings and I can see that smile spreading across your face 😉

Now just because I made a bit of pun on Star Wars (like everyone makes today, let me clarify), does not mean I expect Darth Vader to come light-sabering rudely through my door as I sleep or Darth Maul going all touchy.

Guest Post #4: Satisfying a Craving, The Healthy Way

Bonjour mes cheris, get excited for me! After I finish these exams I am wading through right now, half of year 12 will be forever finished and over with! YAY!

Mais non, focus, FOCUS! It certainly is not over yet no matter how much I dream about year 12 formal. Ah, c’est la vie!

Anyhow, while I am not here to give you recipes, tips, tricks and well, my blog, I have some pretty fan-friggin-tastic fabulous chefs lined up to do so instead! A whole range of dishes for you to enjoy while I am on this undesired break ;) – You won’t even notice my absence I promise!

See you soon for the April holidays and wishing you all a marvelous Easter break! Promise me you will chow down on what that Easter Bunny brings you/your chocolate loot stashed in the bottom of your drawer – Yes, I am on to you all :D

Getting down and healthy seems to be the newest trend these days, keeping that stomach trim and those intestines fresh and detoxed now and again. I am all for getting on this though I prefer my sweets with real butter and real sugar, with my usual return being more exercise. 

I think I may have found someone to convert me. Meet Bek from one very healthy, Aussie blog, Crave! 😀 – She has goals to maintain, a fitness regime BUT makes some out of this world food without the usual fatty ingredients!

Why am I even talking? See for yourself with her healthified and incredible rendition of Rocky Road Ice Cream! 

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

Hey guys! Are you craving something cold, icey, satisfying, sweet..but healthy? Well ladies and gentlemen, I’m here to tell you that you CAN have it all.

But before I fulfil your wildest dreams let me introduce myself- My name is Bek and I’m behind the blog Crave!

Ironic Comfort

The wind is whipping.

The frost is growing.

The sky is blue but it is so mocking.

The sun is shining yet is only a mirage of warmth.

The heaters are on, to no effect, my nails are pale yet my nose is red. I can no longer feel the tips of my ears.

As I climb out of bed, my heart is heavy, I need something to take my mind of the cold which is so prominent, I feel like I am trying to slash through it with a knife.

The Revenge Of The… Chocolate

Yoda: “Only the Dark Lord knows of our weakness”

In a galaxy not so far far away, the dark lord returned. Garbed in a dark covering, he beckoned using his force and the influence he wielded over the weak, the powerless to turn them into his minions.

Darth Vader: “You don’t know the power of the dark side!”

He crackled open, releasing a fresh intoxicating yet dangerous aroma and entrapping us in his aura. He hid his inner self behind a thick coat, but I could almost taste the creaminess of…

timtam

Wait. You thought I was talking about Star Wars? Emperor Palpatine come to turn Earth into a Death Star? Flashing neon light sabers with clashing cool colours? The death of Liam Neeson… I mean Qui-Gon Jinn?

Hahaha, this is far worse.

Sugary Lunch

Sometimes I need massive hits of sugar – so much sweetness that I can finally relax and enjoy myself instead of continually nibbling on tid-bits. That is when I have a sweet lunch. It is really simple. I just make 1/4 or 1/8 of a recipe and eat it as my lunch. Nice no?

I have been known to scarf done tubs of ice cream, molten lava chocolate cakes and sometimes even mini microwave cakes on these occasions. Today I was sold on brownies. Specifically these mini delectable s’mores brownies.

You guys know what s’mores are right? This American idea which consists of two digestive biscuits filled with chocolate and marshmallows before being heated in campfire embers (or the grill/microwave) until the mallow is gooey and the chocolate is flowing. I’d say DAM, these brownies do a good imitation of them. Plus they have a brownie included which makes it all the more better no?

So should I make you jealous of my lunch while you healthy normal folk indulged in sandwiches? Yes, yes I think I will.
