Guest Post: Herb Garden In Your Kitchen

Even after what may as well be a long leave of absence, I still haven’t really had the time to post, I’m sorry guys! And my big news is in the works, so I can’t reveal that yet either (though you can keep guessing 😉 )

I will be having a few guest posts and I miss going through your blogs (stalking more like it) but hope to back on soon!

Till then, enjoy this wonderful guest post by Kelsey Reaves, a very talented contributor at Modernize.com.

Burtukan is growing up fast, helping her family out while forgetting childhood and dreaming of Cafe Share which she runs on a daily basis, serving sips of water in bottle tops and leaves as biscuits to her fellow neighbours with the Ethiopian sun beating down on their backs.

Finally Back!

And it feels so good 😀 – I missed you all! I missed the foodie community, the commenting and checking out hundreds of wonderful delicious posts 🙂

All's well that ends well? We'll see...

All’s well that ends well? We’ll see…

I guess you want and deserve an explanation – let me tell you in a little series:

1. I went on holiday for  a week – my school term finished, I needed a break so I had an awesome time chilling out (literally it was snowing!) in Tasmania 🙂

2. I actually have 3 weeks’ worth of exams starting in 1 1/2 weeks time so I have to study more than cook (*sigh*)
