If there is one thing I have learnt about my 15 years of living in Melbourne, it is that Melbourne does not exactly follow the standard rules of seasons. It is a well known fact that we can sometimes get all the seasons in one day. Yesterday, we experienced heavy rain, then sunshine, then windy rain, hail and it hit single digit lows all on a Spring*coughs* day in Melbourne. Normally, I don’t mind a little bit of rain to break up the hay fever spells I suffer from in Spring, but this rain was so significant (it rained all day!) that it put me straight back into winter hibernation. To cheer myself up, I found myself embracing the cool change, huddled inside wearing my ugg boots and drinking hot cups [&hellip

I have been day dreaming about things I can make in an oven for many weeks now. The day-dream ping and pongs between savoury comfort meals like lamb roast, roast veggies, lasagne to strudels, bagels and delicious fluffy pear and chocolate hot cross buns (Claudia @ The Brick Kitchen is mostly responsible for the last two day dreams). I have also had vivid day dreams about working with choux pastry in my Thermomix and finally trying my hand at making some eclairs or profiteroles. But I am happy to report that the day dreaming days are over as I have great news! I am writing this post to celebrate the start of the floor works required in our apartment. I cannot believe it has been nearly 5 weeks since we moved out of home and lived in a [&hellip

Super Energy Bites

Posted in Food Recipe

Last week, there were some energy bites vibes in the air. My friend, Courtney made some delicious summery citrus energy bites and my sister in-law, Nu made some really delicious ones rolled in chia seeds. In addition to that, H and I were thinking of ways to cut back on our sweet treats (ice-cream, cake and chocolate) and energy bites popped up in conversation. Naturally, I can’t seem to get energy bites out of my head or taste buds so I have decided to make some too. I had some pistachios handy and totally think that these pretty green bites will inspire the inner Hulk in you. When I first tried an energy bite, it was from a health store designed to boost your protein intake. It didn’t taste very good. [&hellip

Greetings from a Hotel Room! Sadly this is not a greeting from an exotic holiday destination. This is a greeting from our temporary home. We are in a hotel room till March as H and I have had to move out of our new apartment due to a washing machine related flood (which happened 5 days before our wedding last December). After a couple of months of trying to get everything back the way it is, we finally managed to get someone to have a look at the floors to assess the damage and it was not pretty. Our floorboards were now harbouring mould under them. Not exactly the way we wanted to start 2016 – so much for a lucky no.13 apartment! Straight after the discovery, we [&hellip
