How To: Bánh Patê Sô (Vietnamese Pastry Pie)

Hey Nibblers!            Christmas is coming! Stress levels may be raging this time of year but, it’s my favourite time of year. I love it for the food, the lights, the buzz and being able to sit down and relax with family. To celebrate, I wanted to post as many finger-licking…

How To: Maltesers Cupcakes

Hey Nibblers!             I’ve been wanting to put this recipe up for so long! With university nearing its end, time has just been slipping out of my fingers. Three more weeks and I’ll have to start fending for myself in the real world! This has been my go-to recipe lately….

How To: Mancakes (Father’s Day Special)

Hey Nibblers!            Father’s Day is just around the corner for those of us in the land down under (Sunday September 7th to be exact). My Dad is so hard to buy for. He spoils himself with things he wants so I never have the chance to swoop in. I’ve also…

How To: Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes

Hi Nibblers! Spring is only a week away for those of us in the southern hemisphere. To welcome the months of hay fever, flowers and sunshine I decided to whip up a batch of ‘Strawberries and Cream’ cupcakes! These cupcakes are extremely easy to make and will not only look great on a plate, each…

How To: Hot Cross Buns

Hey Nibblers!           Winter is in full swing right now. I’m sitting cozied up against my blanket rocking those fluffy strawberry slippers of mine. I don’t know if it’s just me but when the temperature drops, I’m immediately in carbs mode. All I can think about is breads, pasta, muffins. Mix that…

How to: Chocolate Roll Cake with Coffee Buttercream Filling

Hey Nibblers!      I’ve always loved a good roll cake. I always thought they were difficult to make and were way beyond my baking capabilities. But, when a birthday comes along (My Dad’s, – Happy Birthday Dad!) I force to challenge myself to step out of my cupcake comfort zone and enter the world…

How To: Salted Caramel Sauce & Frosting

Hey Nibblers!      Salted caramel, where have you been all my life? Salted caramel has been all the rage lately. Its ability to satisfy the sweet tooth but also deliver a salt kick performs well in anyone’s book.  There has not been a day that I haven’t spotted a salted caramel image. I call…

How To: TARDIS Cake and Adipose Cupcakes!

Hey Nibblers!         My friend, Thao is turning 21! Woo hoo! In celebration of this glorious event, she had a dinner party at ‘Kansai’ a Japanese restaurant on Hunter Street, Sydney a few days ago. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to challenge myself and make a cake. Thao is a…

How to: Choco-Cat Cupcakes with Peanut Butter frosting

Hey Nibblers!          If you can’t already tell by the title this is going to be one CAT-riffic post! To be quite honest, I’m actually not a cat person. In fact, I’m not really an animal person. It’s not because I dislike animals, it’s just I’ve never been around them enough to…

How To: Starburst Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Hey Nibblers!      I have literally just finished my last uni exam for this year. I’m peering outside my window and all I see is rain. Usually, this upsets me but, I’ve feeling quite calm from the pattering sounds hitting my window. Thunder and lighting are going at it with each other but for…

How to: Banana Cupcakes

Hey Nibblers!          I know I’ve already posted a banana cake recipe but since then, I’ve started experimenting and after three successful attempts, I just had to share it with you all. It’s such a quick recipe that doesn’t take much of your time. It’s moist and stays light and fluffy the…

How To: Hot Dogs with Sauerkraut

Hey Nibblers!         With Oktoberfest well in their swing of things / party time slowly dying down, I thought I pop out a Bavarian inspired recipe. I’m not going to lie, I made and documented this a couple of weeks ago but didn’t have the time to pop it on here. I…

How to: Orange Coconut Cake

Hey Nibblers!          I like oranges. I like eating them and juicing them. However, I hate the peeling process which is why I’m always put off eating them. When my parents went overseas a couple of weeks back, Mum had specifically told me to finish what was left of the box of…

How to: Parsley Pesto Chicken Sandwich

Hey Nibblers!      Chicken? Check. Rocket? Check. Bread? Check. Pesto? Check. Sandwich time? Oh yeah. When I’m trying to cut down on my carbs in my day to day life, it only heightens my obsession and lust for sandwiches. I don’t know what it is about the crusty outside and deliciously yeasty soft insides…

How to: Parsley Pesto

Hey Nibblers! I’ve always loved my pesto. If there’s anything pesto on the menu, I’m the one to order it. My Mumma has been tending her little herb garden religiously for about two years now. So, when she said she wanted me to use the abundance of parsley for her, I gladly did, by making…

Hey Nibblers! I’m super excited today to be sharing one of my favourite dishes of all time! It’s really easy to make and great for when you have a small group of friends over for a chilling session. It also gets everyone involved and you can personalise them to any way you like. It may…

How to: Chicken Schnitzel

Hey Nibblers!            Chicken Schnitzels are one of my all-time faves. They’re great by themselves, in a sandwich packed with lettuce, mayo and bacon or in a salad. The only problem is I try and only gobble one but, let’s face it, I don’t actually just eat one, more like five…

How to: Fish Cakes wrapped in lettuce with guacamole.

Hey Nibblers!         Fish and I aren’t really friends. Leftover fish and I are definitely enemies. However, I have found a super easy way to jazz these fishes up. For those of you that feel like you are missing some omega 3 in your life because fish just isn’t you cup of tea, I…

How to: Banh Bong Lan (Vanilla Sponge Cake)

Hey Nibblers!        On Friday, my amazing mum turned 50! She’s my inspiration when it comes to cooking. She loves to experiment and always tries to perfect her recipe if she makes the tiniest mistake. She mostly cooks Vietnamese cuisine as that’s our background which is great because that way, I’ve learnt to…

How to: Peanut Butter Cake Pops

Hey Nibblers!        I just wanted to wish all the Mums out there a Happy Mother’s Day. It was foggy one in Sydney this morning but that cleared up and we had a beautiful, sunny day. My Mum had to go to work today so, I wasn’t able to hang out with her…

How to: Cake Pops with a twist [Mother’s Day Special]

Hey Nibblers! Double post today because I’m feeling extra productive. But, as you all may know Mother’s Day is just around the corner for us Aussies and if you’re stuck on some ideas on what to get Mum, you’ve come to the right place. We passed the cake’s section in our local supermarket the other day…

How To: Carrot Loaf

Hey Everyone, Oh yeah, Mr. Carrot. Today, I lost my carrot cake virginity. And boy, did this baby leave its mark on me. I was grating these carrots real hard and my fingers were swamped in their orange juices for a couple of hours after. So, if you want protection, better glove up! Here’s what…
