Life

Sooo quite a lot of things

- I went to Mallorca for a week. This girl got herself a taaaan and ate loads of ice cream and peaches and cherries. It was a treat yoself week.

- As I’ve posted recipes instead of link love posts for like 2 weeks now, I’ve been waiting to say that I was featured in the Teen Bloggers Article in Foodiecrush Magazine! I made these crazy ass chocolate + vanilla marble cookies sandwiched with a MALTED VANILLA BROWN BUTTER GELATO.

*Chhst* Public Service Announcement: There has been a spillage of AWESOME in the TWC ice cream isle *Chhst*

- aaaand I also did some more photography for Buzzfeed!

- If you subscribe via some way that lets you see my whole blog layout, then you may have noticed I did a tiiiny bit of a revamp on TWC. I added some buttons to the side bar (they’re not very fancy, it was like 5 mins in photoshop :/ )

- I’m finally going to be posting that Angel food Cake you may have seen me talk about on various social media (about a month ago. woahh. Okay, sorry for that!) soon, and a reaallly really quick savoury lunch dealie (although I’m naht too crazy about the photos. Dull lighting, why you maka me cry???)

- and hollly schmoly, the Kitchn named me as one of The Top 15 Food instagrams accounts to follow. Excuse me for a second (*doesn’t* go do 1-person Mexican wave…) What, who ever said anything about Mexican wave?? who even is that?..

Link-Loves

- I want to stand around all day and talk about these Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Chickpeas.You have got to be crazy town to not want those.

- Billy made cheddar jalapeño bread. and crouton-ified it. It makes me feel like this.

- These Tomato, Goats Cheese and Basil Pesto tarts are SO GORGEOUS and easy! Heather, how do you make such beautiful food!?!

-Tracy layered up popcorn with toasted coconut flakes. It’s like a parfait, but crunchy and COCONUTTY (i.e. 314% better) . That popcorn, I just… (and my mum subscribes to Shutterbean too, and I knew she’d opened the post because I heard her, FROM UPSTAIRS, going “AHH COCONUT POPCORN”)

-Megan, Megan, Megan, could you put any more things into a sentence that I’d like to make all at once? Ice cream, brownies, cookies and crafts. I’m so there.

- and then there’s Ashley’s Coconut stuffed ice cream. Pretty dreamy stuff. Okay. Well I think we’re seeing a pattern here. Obviously layering coconut flakes into food is where it’s at, and I am all for it. #5ever.

GIRLfriend. Stop it with these cookies. Seriously out of control. You are tremendously talented and continue to blow me away. Huge congrats on Foodiecrush. The issue was amazing and loved seeing + reading more about you in it. The egg dinner photos were great, too. You’re killin’ it! Thanks for including me on your list. xo

Oh my goodness those ice cream sandwiches looks devilishly gooey-good.
Came across your instagram and facebook and I’d just like to let you know that I’m absolutely in love with your blog, your recipes and your enticing food pics. They all work as a magic combo.
On top of that, I’m super excited to know that you live in London. I’ve lived in Sydney for 4 years and I’m relocating to London in September. Maybe I’ll see you around!
And keep up with the good work – you’re an amazing food blogger xo

Holy crap, those ice cream cookie sandwiches. WHAT. Congrats on the FoodieCrush Mag feature AND The Kitchn instagram shoutout!!! So deserved. =D

Those brown sugar chickpeas are so ridiculous. I love discovering things by accident. They’re like healthy candy to me, which is the best kind of candy, because then I can eat ALL THE “CANDY.” Thanks for the shoutout! (: Also, I can’t wait for the angel food cake post!!

Aaaaand, I already replied on my blog, but I will repeat myself now: OMG MKIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
