You guys, I’m finally a teenager!
I woke up this morning and had a moustache, broken voice and a growth spurt.
Just kidding. I did wake up with a moustache though- 5 years in the making! Being half Asian, the duration to grow out my facial hair is worse than a snail’s pace. Luckily I’m not a hipster because beards are in. By the time I grow one…Oh who am I kidding, I’d never be able to grow one.
Damn half Asian genes.
Okay this post is not about complaining about my heritage or to discuss facial hair, hipsters or both. It’s my birthday and to celebrate I have a huge giveaway for three of you…but more on that below.
Firstly, just a few updates! Did you catch my recipe yesterday for a Copycat Starbucks Spinach and Feta breakfast wrap? Call me scorned with disappointment, but while the ‘Bux has my heart (at times) when it comes to semi decent coffee, their food department is another story. Lucky I won’t be dining there on their wraps now I have my own.
Bonus? You guys can also win a trip to Hawaii as part of the campaign! Please take me with you. I have candy……
2. I’ve decided to take ‘No Baking‘ to a whole new level and do a mini series recreating 7 popular cookies. I’ll be giving them a ‘No Bake’ makeover and each one will be friendly for those who follow a vegan, gluten free and/or paleo lifestyle.
I present- Girl Scout Cookies!
One of my friends gifted me a box of all the flavours when they returned from America in February. They made such a big deal about it because apparently they had to trek all over the suburbs in various states (not even kidding you) to find them.
Besides being visually appealing and cutsie and made of unicorn flour (that might be a lie), they tasted delicious and I polished off the boxes within 3 weeks. Granted, I did give one to my sister and grandma.
One cookie. One cookie of each flavour.
Stay tuned for a recreation of-
Thin Mints | Samoas | Tagalongs | Cranberry Citrus Crisps | Lemonades | Rah-Rah Raisins | Savannah Smiles and Trios.
I understand that there are 12 cookies in the collection but I only sampled the above 8.
3. Speaking of cookies- I present the ugliest cookie with the most (self proclaimed) genius idea behind it-
Wait. Paleo Dunkaroo Cookies.
Wait. Paleo Dunkaroo Cookies which are actually pretty darn healthy AND has a vegan + gluten free option.
Yeah, that happened. No shame.
4. GIVEAWAY TIME!
I know I sound like a broken record but the number 1 reason why I love blogging and continue to put so much time and effort in it is because of YOU, the reader. Nothing makes me happier than receiving an email, message, tweet, pigeon mail delivery saying that one of my recipes is on your weekly reportoire. Nothing makes me happier than getting a lengthy comment telling me how a post has impacted you or sharing a different perspective.
Because of you, I’ve been fortunate to build amazing relationships, work on amazing collaborations and do what I love to to everyday.
Although I can’t think of a way to show my true level of thanks, I think a cheeky giveaway will have to suffice for now. I’ve teamed up with some of my favourite brands you’ve seen featured on here before to provide THREE readers an amazing package, each worth over $500. They include everything a healthy foodie or just any foodie would enjoy- Nut butters, supplements, snack bars, baking goods, VOUCHERS to online stores (which ship to most countries).
This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE and just follow the widget below to enter.
Please note- Entries ARE monitored. I’ve had issues in the past where people didn’t play fair. I want everyone to be on an equal playing field so these steps are necessary. Good luck and once again- THANK YOU!
