Pizza Dough

Hello everyone! I don’t think I have ever been so happy that the weekend is here because it has been an incredibly busy past few weeks at work. My office recently had it’s national conference and our city was the hosting office this year. Was great to meet heaps of new people working for the organization but man was it tiring. I was pretty much smashed and cooking dinner was the last thing on my mind. Due to past experiences […]

Snowskin Mooncake

Hi everyone! Woops, it has been awhile. Work has gotten so so busy I simply cannot find to finish all the work I am meant to do. 90% of the time I feel like lying down on my office floor to do this –> . I don’t think it is quite appropriate so I have refrained myself from doing so. On the up-side, Nelson is back to it’s sunny warm days so I have started walking/biking to work again. This of […]

Because I will have to split it into a series of posts, I think I shall start a NZ Series as I have done with Kuching and Xiamen. Most of the activities I’ll be writing […]

The Best Scone Recipe

I just whipped up a batch of these scrumptious scones today. As I started to butter one for afternoon tea, it hit me. I have yet to share the recipe with everyone here!  I am sorry. Please forgive me.  I slightly tweaked the original recipe by adding more butter and a touch of vanilla. It is incredulously easy to make and the scones produced are out of this world. The texture is crumbly and so so sooo soft, it feels like […]

Granola Bars Recipe

Wooh! It is the weekend. This weekend we also have the added bonus of having Anzac Day fall on a Monday – bring on the long weekend. Usually we take a long drive somewhere and we all know how taxing drives can be. You need to crank up the music and have snacks on hand to survive. We usually buy all sorts of junk food to fuel us. Yes, yes I know it is bad for us but really the muesli bars […]
