Guest Post: Aloo Matar

Despite having not been around that often, I haven’t forgotten about all the blogging friends I have made over the past three years (crazy right!?) One of the amazing people I have been lucky enough to know is Minnie over from The Lady 8 Home. This blogger is basically a superwoman, she literally has it all under control 🙂

Not only that though, she cooks like a pro, I mean look at this Aloo Matar (literal translation from my mad Hindi skills: Potato Pea Curry).

I know majority of you know of her awesomeness already but for those who don’t, you are about to be blown away by a scrumptious recipe made by a fabulous blogger – enjoy mes cheris!

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?

And what better way to combat that cold than with a delicious risotto that warms you up inside out, from head to toe?

CCU Undercover: Almond Bar

I’m sorry that this review wasn’t last post like i had planned, but I felt like I needed to write about the tragedy. Thanks for reading it and sharing your opinions and thoughts.

Now, onto nicer things… like HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE! 😀 😀

And also… my review… 🙂

Tucked away in the central streets of Darlinghurst, with full view of St Vincent’s hospital, is a quaint tiny place that is BOOMING with Mediterranean flavour inspired by beautiful Syria. You enter, it is comfy, you sit down, you get nice service, you taste the food and BAM!

You never want to leave again. I got you with those capitalised words didn’t I? Admit it 😉

Read on for a full review of a small but tasteful restaurant…

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!

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!
