College Guys’ Banana & Walnut Bread – by Adam

{Hi everyone, I like to introduce you my dear friend, Adam, who came to visit me over the Christmas holiday coming all the way from Melbourne, Victoria.  He is a seasoned blogger and the one who got me into blogging.  Despite his love for food, he is not a food blogger. To get a taste of being a food blogger, here is his post – Emily}

OMG I’m in Orange.  For the last several weeks I have been couch surfing across mainland Australia.  After spending 4 weeks in Melbourne I have managed to make my way to Orange NSW.  Why Orange you ask?  WHY NOT.


Cheesy Rice Cake with Smoked Chicken & Sundried Tomatoes – A Christmas Leftover Idea

I hope you have had a “foodful” celebration. Before I go further, I like to take this moment to wish everyone a Happy Holiday and a (super!) big thank you for your time to read and comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. :)


Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (Nutella) + Fairy Bread

I can’t believe I have been forking out money to buy hazelnut spread. If you’ve tried making this at home, you know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s seriously easy and requires only 6 ingredients which are highly accessible in any supermarkets, if not already available in our pantries.


Apricot & Lime Polenta Cake

If baking cookies and gingerbreads  as well as shopping for gifts are the only things you have to worry about, consider yourself lucky.

Due to my garden weed situation,  I have been diligent in weeding out my front yard  for the past couple of days (my backyard is yet to finish, sigh!).  So far, Orange  does not have much of a summer, as the intermitent rain and the mugginess felt before downpours made gardening even less pleasurable than it was. Anyway, I’m glad that my front yard is looking a lot better now and before moving on to my backyard, I decided to take a break and bake a cake. A much needed gesture to inject some pleasure in between gardening. :P
