Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Peanut Butter Cream

So what did you guys do this Valentine’s Day? Me? I made whoopie. Get your mind out of the gutter! Ay? No! Well, maybe, but that’s none of your beeswax!! 😉 teehee No, what I meant was, I tried my hands at whoopie pies and hey, they were a hit! When the “Love at First Bite” gauntlet was thrown for February’s Sweet Adventures blog hop challenge, I had a billion recipes running through my mind. Narrowing down those recipes to something I hadn’t tried before, and something that was really special to me and my new husband, I had a pretty tough decision to make. So like any food blogger who cant choose between two dishes, I took the only road I could, and did both. This post however, contains only one of those recipes (stay tuned for the other later in the month). A quick welcome and thank...

February Sweet Adventures Blog Hop?? Love at First Bite!

When Jen Le Delicieux, JJ 84th & 3rd, Christina Hungry Australian, Heather Kitchen Crusader and I were chatting one evening about a blog hop, we had no idea it could turn in to Sweet Adventures. Its been a great 4 months worth of hops so far and it has been so great seeing what everyone comes up with. Thanks to you fabulous food bloggers. You are a mighty creative bunch aren’t you?? Ay?? Aren’t you?? So, in the spirit of all things dessert, myself and the very lovely ladies from Sweet Adventures are proud to bring you this months theme “Love at First Bite!” which will take place on Monday 20th February (9am Sydney time ). As you may have noticed (and if you didn’t, I’m slightly offended ;)), its been pretty quiet here on the DWAS site. That’s because January has been a big month. Early Jan was...

This months Sweet Adventures Blog Hop (#SABH) is “Festive Favourites” of course. What else? 😉 and hosted by the lovely JJ from 84th&3rd. Head on over to her SABH post for details on how you can join the hop with a bunch of other awesome food bloggers 🙂 get involved! Its too much fun!! Christmas is definitely my favourite holiday. It’s such a great time of year! Everyone is really festive and mostly drunk from all the Christmas parties lol – it’s jut a happy time. If I had my way, it would be Christmas all year round in our household. Stud has to reign me in a bit – much to my dismay 😉 Normally each Christmas, I make a trifle, Christmas ice cream (vanilla ice-cream combined with mixed fruit and nut, and chocolate) and then maybe a fruit salad. This year, I wanted to make something different...

Sweet Adventures Blog Hop: Festive Favourites

First of all, I would like to thank all of the participants in last months Sweet Adventure’s blog hop. All of your Pavlovas were fab! It was so much fun hopping through everyone’s favourite version of the humble pav. I was definitely feeling the sugar rush haha. Special mentioned to Jennifer from Deliceux for hosting our first ever event. Thanks girl! You did such a great job 😀 Due to the event being so successful, the Sweet Adventures crew and I will be making it a monthly event. Fun!! So with Christmas (way too) fast approaching, the December Sweet Adventures blog hop will be *drum roll* Festive Favourites!…………………………………………… Sorry, I was doing a little happy dance. I’m back now. Excited much? Umm yeah!! If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you will know how much I love Christmas. Stud thinks its quite endearing, I’m sure that will wear...

Pavlova blog hop – my homage to Reese’s

As you may have seen on Twitter, today is D-day. The day when bloggers unite to bring you our version of the great (debatably) Aussie pavlova! After chatting with a few other food bloggers on Twitter some three weeks ago, about Reese’s (just hearing the word makes me happy),”Sweet Adventures” The Great Australian Pavlova Blog Hop was born and here we are, posting our very own versions of a pav. If you would like to be a part of future “Sweet Adventures” please comment below and we’ll be sure to send it around. Also, if you have any ideas of suggestions for our next Adventure, by all means. Share share 😀 It took me a while to come up with something. Do I go traditional? What about some kind of crazy fusion pav? Then it hit me!! Stud was out at the football; Bonnie and I were catching up...

The Great Australian Pavlova Blog Hop

November 18, 2011

It’s amazing what can happen when you are on Twitter! Majority of the people I follow on Twitter and regularly connect with, are foodies (duh!). A part from the occasional celeb like Drita from Mob Wives (LOVE, and I’m not ashamed to say so!), my entire Twitter universe revolves around food. So I guess its not surprising that late one night while in a convo with Delicieux, Hungry Australian, JJ, and The Capers of the Kitchen Crusade about Reeses and their many uses, Hungry Australian mentioned she was doing a Pav for her next post. An hour or so (and a hogged Twitter feed) later, and we he had decided to do a blog hop! Now pardon my newbie ignorance, but I had no idea what a blog hop was lol! But I kind of got the gist of it a few emails later. Its quite simple actually –...
