Funfetti Cupcakes are exactly how they sound… such fun! They’re Vanilla cupcakes with sprinkles in the batter. I know!! Cool right! My nephew Olson asked for sprinkles on the Cupcakes.. so we took it one step further and filled the Cupcakes with sprinkles. Well, to be honest, he first asked for ‘strawberry cupcakes but strawberries aren’t in season right now and who wants fake flavoured strawberry stuff in their cupcakes.. not me!! Now, please note in this post, it’s mostly just a bunch of cute picture of my nephew and I creating our cute little cupcakes. I kind of just made…

Hello friends, yes, I have been a bit MIA lately so this post is extremely delayed, but hey, better than nothing! Although it was a couple of weeks ago, I just wanted to pop back a share some awesome photos I got on Mothers Day.  I had a blast this mothers day celebrating and spoiling my Mum, Aunty, Nanas and Sister. A mum is one of the most important people in our lives. My mum has been my absolute rock my whole life, she is the other half of me and id be lost without her. Mum is always there…

It’s that time of the year when all you really feel like doing is watching Netflix and eating delicious fresh baked chocolate cookies. Still warm and gooey in the middle, yet slightly crunchy on the outside. If this sounds like you, well then, do I have the recipe for you! I love this recipe, mostly because it has way too much chocolate in it then really necessary. Actually to be honest I’m just saying that for those who are greatly into chocolate like I am, you know as like a disclaimer of the sort. Is there really such thing as too…

This post has nothing to do with hunger for food, but more being very hungry for adventure, I know I’m surprised too. My 3 best friends and I really needed a break and a get-the-hell-away-from-Auckland-escape. I found out my Auntys’ batch in Matarangi was free, we had to drop everything and go. For the first time in a long time and with only about 2 days notice all four of us were free for the whole weekend. So off we went, four girls, one car, Matarangi and Whangpoua, we’re coming for ya! Matarangi Matarangi is this beautiful, I guess you could…

Don’t you hate it at this time of the year when there are way too many Feijoas falling off the tree and you can’t keep up with the eating to growing ratio? I decided to make a Feijoa cake you could have for dessert when you have the ladies over for tea, a great one to take to a friends place for dessert. Or just make and eat because it’s delicious and you should treat yourself. If you don’t have a Feijoa tree, I guarantee there is someone you know who does and is trying everything to get rid of…

Friday 14th April 2017. My 25th Birthday. The beginning of the other half of 50. The next quarter of a quarter of a century of my life. The approximately 9,125th day of my living (give or take a few days). Surrounded by every one of my favourite people, the most delicious food, waffles, bacon, eggs, hollandaise sauce, hot cross buns, cakes, cupcakes, tarts, macarons, chocolate oh my.. I’m hungry!! Ah yes and the G n T’s.. don’t forget the G n T’s. The Surprise… My morning started out with my incredible boyfriend and flatmates summoning me to stay in my room…

Hello, fellow Hungry people! This post is a bit different from what I have been doing so far. Yep in this post, I admit I am not perfect, but hell who really is!? Last Sunday was my sisters’ baby Sprinkle. I was so excited about this because it was the perfect excuse for me to make another cake. Yay! I made a Lemon cake with lemon curd filling and lemon buttercream. It tasted good, I’ll completely admit that. No. It was delicious and I was so happy with how it turned out. BUT it was not smooth sailing all the…

My whole life I’ve been a very hungry girl…. Bored – hungry. Playing sport- hungry. Working – hungry. Breathing – Hungry. Hell! EATING – hungry!!! So you get the point I really like to eat, or I really like to be hungry, not sure which one it is! Or is that feeling when you manage to let yourself get so hungry that the food, when you finally get to eat it, tastes so dam good, like probably better that ever it normally would! Like a cheeseburger after a drunken night out, Mmm. Everything I do I try to revolve it around…
