I am a bit of a fan of Christmas.
The Christmas carols, decorating the tree and opening a new door of my advent calendar every day until Christmas gets me all excited for the holidays and most of all, has me constantly craving gingerbread bikkies.
Of course, gingerbread cookies are full of sugar, so eating them every day? Not ideal. But there’s no reason for you to miss out on the beautiful spice of ginger and cinnamon, especially because they can benefit your blood sugar, heart health and digestion.

On Friday morning, slightly bleary-eyed, I woke up with the excited realisation that today was the day I had come here for; I was going to the Bupa Blog Awards!
To give you an idea of how excited I was, I was dressed, make-up and hair done and purse packed and ready an hour and a half before I needed to leave, and my goodness, was I impatient! I decided that as I had a spare ticket, I would invite one of the other hostel guests to be my plus one, and luckily for me, Mitch, the American (who to my extreme jealousy was going to see Ben Folds live at the freaking Opera House that night!) had just purchased some clean duds to wear to such an event, and just happened to be free.

Its no secret that my favourite tea in the history of tea, is Earl Grey.
My Mum always has a box of it hand just for when my sister and I go to visit, I rave about it so much, I’ve been known to inspire others to venture into the world of Earl Grey tea (especially French Earl Grey) and I’ve got some friends that keep a box handy for when I pop by. My purse constantly has a strong scent of bergamot because I insist on carting bags of earl grey around, just in case, and most birthdays and Christmases I’m given some variation of T2’s French Earl Grey products (my special occasion tea). Earl Grey tea is my jam! (so to speak) Continue reading

When I asked if you guys wanted this recipe, I was overwhelmed by the response and so very excited too! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I am a little obsessed with making my own hollandaise sauce of late, so as with other food obsessions, I end up making said recipe almost every day/meal. Seriously though, who doesn’t love hollandaise?
It was so good, I couldn’t help but lick the plate!!
But I’m sure you’re thinking, Continue reading
With all these frosty nights lately, there is nothing better than a chicken soup to warm up your body (and your heart). My chicken soup recipe has been highly requested, by friends, housemates and some of you out there in cyberspace, so it is without further ado that I share said recipe here.
The thing with this recipe is that it has slowly evolved over time to become the gorgeous masterpiece that it is. When I make it, I use my own chicken broth (or stock) and usually put in chicken from the whole chicken I roast the night before. Continue reading
