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!

Guest Post #9: Peanut Butter Quinoa Oat Muffins

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!

Huh?

My title is a little confusing. Allow me to clarify to you the confusion.

Augustus = Chocolate Covered Peanut

“Huh?”

“Um… am I being stupid here or do I not get it?”

You are obviously being stupid. JOKES, no you are not. But allow me to explain the very nerdy, very school-ish inspiration for this equation. I do not do maths anymore so perhaps you may take that into account for my nonsensical equation (Quick, maths teachers, cover those eyes!)

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.
