Monday must-reads!

Hey friends!

I finally beat the flu. It was quite a struggle, but in the end it was no match for my super vege-powered body. There is so much happening at the moment. Uni work is piling up, but I’m also really excited about the Rugby World cup (because you’re not a true kiwi if you aren’t caught up in the hype.) So if you aren’t currently yelling at the ref or singing patriotically to your national anthem, I’ve got some awesome reads for you.

Double chocolate zucchini muffins

Hiya friends!

So I’ve been a little under the weather this week. I caught an unfortunate bout of man-flu off my dad…it’s so much worse than regular flu (because we all know what men are like when they get sick.)

The problem with labels…

Hello friends!

Remember when label makers were the latest and greatest invention? We’d go round slapping stickers on just about everything. The coolest kids in school were the ones with all of their colouring pencils labelled. I never did own a label-maker, but boy was I jealous of my friends who did.

Long before label-makers, there were human beings…and we really are the ultimate label makers.

Food in a flash: Quesadillas

Hola friends!

So I’ve been home about 6 hours, and I haven’t left the kitchen yet. This is what happens people when you deprive a cook of her kitchen! But we are back in business, and I am chock full of inspiration to share with you. I’m kicking it off with an exceptionally awesome Mexican inspired recipe. So slap on a sombrero and let’s get to it.

Matcha caramel bliss balls

Hey friends!

I’d like to thank you all for your unbelievable support concerning my last post. It’s never easy letting the whole world know your worst secrets, but I have to say the liberating feeling was worth it. The thing about baring your soul though, is that it works up quite an appetite. So I have a wicked treat to share which I’m sure will hit the spot.

The truth about me…

Hi friends!

This is a very personal post. Today I finally feel that I’m ready to tell my story. I’m ready to share the struggle I went through and the way it continues to affect me today. I really want to be as transparent as possible, because then hopefully you will see I am genuine, and human. We all have our personal trials…and this is mine. I hope that you will take the time to read this, and that something I say will resonate within you.
