Six years

Today is a special day – it’s my sixth blog anniversary. I normally post a cake, but I don’t have one this year because we’ve been away and I actually forgot that this was coming up. Instead, here’s a little behind the scenes post. This was meant to be longer but I ran out of [...]

Lord of the Fries voucher winners

Thanks to everyone who left comments, poetry and haikus for the Lord of the Fries vouchers. They were so entertaining! I drew the winners randomly today, and coincidentally everyone who won left me a haiku/poem. Mr Potatohead would like to announce the winners: 1: Leaf My little burger It is a beautiful day I shall [...]

Xmas 2010

Merry Xmas! Cisco the Christmas cat says hello! He spent Xmas morning underneath the Xmas tree, guarding the presents. I hope everyone had a lovely day, full of family, friends and fab food. We had our traditional Orphans’ Xmas, though it was an unofficial Orphans’ gathering this year since my parents are currently visiting. Here [...]

Popping candy cake

This post is for the Nuffnang Christmas Blogger Challenge – but if you read on, there’s a funky dessert as well. The challenge for this month is this: “Pick out the best blog post you wrote in 2010, and write a blog post which links to that post and explains why it’s your favourite.”

Asian snack food tasting

The idea for an Asian snack food tasting session came out of a Twitter convo with Thanh, Adrian and others. It was one of those ideas that sounded fantastic – a group of us getting together for lunch and tasting dried cuttlefish and dried mangoes. Thanh organised a lunch meet up at Old Town Kopitiam [...]

Assorted eats

I know that I’m not the only food blogger who struggles with this. Basically, I eat more than I blog, which means I have a rather large amount of photos accumulated. In order to get through some of them, I’m going to cram several places into a couple of posts. After that maybe I’ll tackle [...]

Happy Birthday!

I didn’t bake these tarts! It’s my wonderful husband’s birthday today! To celebrate, there was Birthday-eve French Toast, and Birthday Lasagna (as there is every year) and lots and lots of love. Happy birthday to the best hand model, taste tester, and carrier of heavy shopping a girl could ever have.

Sydney: assorted eating

We headed up to Sydney the other weekend to watch Alastair’s cousin race in a regatta. It was the beginning of a whole week of eating! I knew zilch about yachts, sailing, and 18 foot skiffs, before the weekend. But after two afternoons spent on a spectator ferry watching the racing, I can now tell [...]

RSPCA Cupcake Day recap

The Cupcake Bakeoff for the RSPCA Cupcake Day went well at work today. We had a good assortment of cupcakes – along with mine there was also carrot, lemon, banana, and vanilla with different toppings. There was some tough competition from bumblebee cupcakes (see below) but the fondant toppers and the booze in mine got [...]

Jammy cupcakes

Another weekend, another batch of practice cupcakes before the Almighty Cupcake Challenge. The recipe for this batch was adapted from Australian Women’s Weekly “Bake”. They are basically a vanilla cupcake base, with a dollop of jam swirled through the top. For the icing, I thought I’d try a buttercream with the addition of a couple [...]
