i've been baking and cooking a lot since i returned home. mostly been preparing to make a cake for one of my closest friends 21st birthday which is tomorrow, photos to come soon. but in the mean time..

roast vege pizza on a mini wholemeal pita bread, add some roast pumpkin and voila, delish.

baked a batch of my dads incredible biscotti for my friends birthday to go with the creme brulee(!) flavoured tea and the cookbook i wrote for her.

look at all those cranberries and pistachios. om nom nom nom.
i've been on holidays and let me tell you, it feels wonderful! after spending a year working 6 days a week it's the nicest/strangest feeling to have just over 2 weeks off work. i spent time with family who came to stay for a few days over christmas, almost a week at the beach and the past few days i've just been chilling at home. i was hating it at first, it felt like a waste of a holiday to not be anywhere exciting but it's sort of nice to settle in and clean and get organised before it's back to business.

here's a few snaps..

the beeeautiful orakawa bay, 40 minute walk over the hill from waihi, worth every step.
1kg of cherries for $9.99! i love out of town/side of the road fruit stalls!
amazing cafe in waihi called the secret garden, we spent time here everyday.
bestfriend and her boyfriend on new years day, classic kiwi bach.
secret garden with luke, happy times.
would have been ultimate shot...

another 20 minute walk from orakawa bay is a waterfall, so nice.

what did you do for your holidays? x
