Experimenting with Strawberry Cupcakes

Experimenting with Strawberry Cupcakes

People who know me well, know that I love baking. Often I use it as a means to escape stress, but when I'm not stressed, that's when I truly love baking. That’s when I throw the recipe book out and experiment. So when I got asked to make cupcakes for a friend’s party,...

Who You Gonna Call?

Who You Gonna Call?

I was never a big fan of the original Ghostbusters. I don’t even recall ever actually watching the whole film, so the whole idea of a remake of it didn’t bother me beyond the whole idea of Hollywood not having an original idea. The idea of an all-female Ghostbusting...

Just Keep Swimming!

Just Keep Swimming!

Like most people my age, when I heard that they were making a sequel to Finding Nemo, I was both elated and concerned. Finding Nemo was one of those films which I held up as something amazing. So the odds that its sequel live up to it was something I wasn’t sure it...

Indecisions

Something weird is happening with me. For years I hated studying. It took me multiple attempts to find a degree at university that would keep my attention. I tried environmental management type courses, internet related courses before ending up with a degree in...

Chicken and Corn Risotto

Chicken and Corn Risotto

Earlier this month I decided to make chicken stock from the leftover bones of a BBQ chicken that we had purchased and stripped of meat. This influenced my decision to then make risotto from the stock. Yes, I know in many TV cooking competitions, risotto is the kiss of...

Frustrations Abound

Frustrations Abound

After the highs of last week, this week has started off poorly. Frustration is my main issue. Frustrated because once again I’m injured and this time, I can’t even say what caused it. It wasn’t skating, it wasn’t a fall, and it wasn’t a knock. It just is. On Thursday...

The Great Southern Slam

The Great Southern Slam

Oh my goodness. This past weekend has been insane and I have loved every minute of it! Friday last week saw Nick and I jump in our car to then drive all the way to Adelaide. Besides being stuck in peak hour (which had gone longer than it should have due to chaos...
