Hey! Remember when I blogged with some kind of regular schedule? Me, too! Anyway, life has been a little crazy lately the last six weeks or so, and I’ve had this post ready to write for a few weeks but just could not find the time to do it. But here I am! Here is the post!
This came about when I was planning what we would do for Christmas dinner, which we are hosting at our house this year. I was thinking about dessert and was thinking about how we always get the same delicious pudding each year to have with cream or ice cream, and while I love that pudding, I was thinking what if we just ran out of time to buy one? What could I do that required minimal effort if I really, really didn’t have time to find the pudding, or forgot completely to organise getting one before Christmas? Then I was grocery shopping one day at Aldi (my favourite shop), and I was browsing all their seasonal Christmas goodies and it struck me: just buy a bunch of sweet, seasonal Christmas chocolates and biscuits and arrange them on a plate and voila! Christmas chocolate platter!
It still feels like Winter here in Melbourne – it’s currently pouring with rain and windy as I write this, so when I realised I hadn’t done a baking blog post in a while it was an easy decision to feature these scones, which I first started making a few years ago. I used to… Continue reading ->
You guys. I have a new obsession and it’s pretty obvious what it is. Bomber jackets. I’ll be honest, it took me a while to come around to them, but suddenly they are literally EVERYWHERE and I can’t get enough of them. I bought an olive green one a while ago and now I’ve got… Continue reading ->
I’ve been trying to update my wardrobe a little bit lately. I think it’s because we’ve reached that point in Winter where it feels like it’s never going to end, I’m going to be stuck inside forever, and I’m never going to wear anything except fleecy hoodies and tracksuit pants for the rest of my… Continue reading ->
I needed to make a little something sweet for a morning tea date this week I had and thought a slice would be the easiest thing to do, but I was bored by my usual chocolate-y slice repertoire. I did a little googling using the phrase “sweet slice” to see what would come up that… Continue reading ->
Hello! It’s been a while, no? My laptop hard drive died, so it was impossible to get any blogging done until I had it fixed, which took a little longer than anticipated. I’ve been trying to make a plan to get back into blogging with at least one entry a week, so we’ll see how… Continue reading ->
There’s something no one tells you about having a baby. It is literally the best way to sit and binge-watch TV shows. THE BEST. I mean, it’s exhausting and you’re so tired some (most) days you can barely function, but in those early months when the baby just needs to be fed and cuddled endlessly… Continue reading ->
Being half Italian, I always thought it was in my blood to be able to make a delicious pasta sauce without too much effort. Turns out I was wrong. It’s especially hard when you’re trying to emulate your Nonna’s delicious pasta sauce for which there is no recipe written down – she would always just… Continue reading ->
It took me a really long time to understand what my skin type is. I always thought it was normal, so I would just buy any cleaner I could find, usually a cheapie in the supermarket, then wonder why my skin broke out, or I felt like I had a film of residue left on… Continue reading ->
