Modern Italian and Mediterranean delights @ L'Olivo

I took a break during exam season to wine and dine with Shiv - it had been a while since we'd caught up, and a while since I'd had a proper meal cause of all the studying!

We went to a lovely family owned restaurant called L'Olivo in East Malvern for dinner. They serve a mix of traditional and modern dishes, reaching from the recipe books of Italy and the mediterranean. They've got tapas, pizzas, pastas, desserts - so much on offer!

Totally loving how late the sun sets during summertime in Australia! I was beyond excited and in the highest spirits, and luckily the food and drinks did not disappoint.

Summertime Celebrations @ DESSERT STORY

My darlings! I've missed you!

I am now fully in summer break, and boy, has it been a busy one! Straight after exams I got busy packing up my room for storage to prepare for my trip home to Manila. Lucky for me though, I got the chance to spend an afternoon with Belle and some friends at Dessert Story in Chinatown!

Couldn't wait to get my hands on some yummy celebratory treats!

Goats On The Hill - from paddock TO PLATE!

I am so excited to be writing up this post, finally! If there is one thing I love to talk about, it is food

As the grand finale of the spectacular day Megan, Taylan, Chef Matt and Chef Salvatore organised... We gathered at the homestead for drinks, appetisers, a three-course dinner, dessert, after-dinner drinks, a cheese board, and coffee.


Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too? They sure need to get themselves down to Seven Hills Tallarook!

Study study eat eat repeat!

As some of you may already know, I'm smack dab in the middle of exam season right now. All my cooking has been nice and simple, and I think perfect for a university student looking for a quick, healthy, and yummy fix!

Here are two of my favourites from the past couple of weeks.
For a while there, I'd been neglecting my kitchen and just stopping by our campus centre and buying food to eat at the library. But I reminded myself that I needed good, clean, and green food, especially to get through the last stretch of the semester. Not random batch cooked curries and pastas and rice toppings from the various eateries on campus.
Yum! Hope all of you lovely readers are eating good, sleeping soundly! I'll be writing more once exams are over :) Keep healthy!

Love and lots of garlic,
