Traveling between cities sure can get exhausting but you get caught up in the holiday excitement that keeps you going. Not only is it the things you get to see and do, but I think the eating adventures are just as fun and equally important. See what we got up to traveling from Sacramento to LA in just one day…..
IHOP – International House of Pancakes
While I was overseas, the infamous Laduree had opened in Westfield Sydney. I was bummed that I missed out on the opening but am also glad that I wasn’t here for the long queues that I had heard all about. Luckily for me, I could quickly duck down at any time during my working day and that I did.
ALOHAAAAAAAAAA! Hello and Goodbye at the same time! Thought this macaron photo would be appropriate as it represents the colours of the country I’ll be spending the next 3 weeks in. Follow me on instagram for where I’m going, what I’m doing and what I’m eating. I’ll see you soon, my friends!
Those who follow me on instagram would know I’ve been baking quite the bit lately. I’ve always had an interest in baking. Back in the high school days I would try to bake my girlfriends something for their birthday even if it meant out of a packet and asking my parents how to use the hand mixer and oven. So really, all I’d do is mix the ingredients and my parents would do the rest. Times have definitely changed.
I must say that being an Aunty has definitely ignited the bigger baking spark in me. Nothing beats baking and designing a personalised cake (or any other baked treats) for the ones you love most. A big thank you goes out to the Boy who supports me and helps me when I’m about to fall apart because things just don’t go to plan.
It’s time to show you some of the things I’ve made over the past months….
Happy 1st Birthday to bitemeshowme! A year (and a day) ago today I started a project which combined several of my hobbies – blogging, photography, eating and cooking. 68 posts later here I am celebrating my first bloggiversary (weee happy blog birthday to me!). It’s been an amazing year filled with fantastic eats, awesome photography opportunities, kitchen adventures and wonderful people (yes to all you food bloggers out there). Thank you for all your reads, comments and support. I am looking forward to another exciting and fun-filled year ahead.
I leave you with a photo of some chocolate and passionfruit macarons I made for a friend (perfect timing really ;P).
I’m generally not one to celebrate Valentine’s Day but I thought I would try and get into the spirit and make a few things for this occassion.
