Travel Log: Gold Coast & Cairns

Thanks for bearing with me as I get my travels down on “paper”. After beautiful Sydney we headed to the Gold Coast. It looked so beautiful in the photos and this is where everyone goes to surf.

Gluten-free Hazelnut Brownies and Review of Gone Pie Bakery

October Cooking Tool of the Month – Cast Iron  Brownies are one of those things that I really love to eat, but can never quite make myself the way I want them to taste. The reason why brownies at a bakery taste so good is because they are full of sugar and fat.
