What have I been blogging about?
My blog is mainly about my cooking and a place to share recipes that I have grown up eating, where I recreate what I have learnt from my mum and dad. This will continue to be one of the focuses of my blog as I want to document all these recipes. Blogging has also been a motivation for learning to cook new dishes and revise old dishes. I have become a better cook because I blog and want to share interesting kitchen adventures. Nowadays I like to get a bit more creative with food because maybe I am feeling a bit more confident at what I do.
Some of my favourite posts from the past year
|Chocolate Bourbon Cake with Bourbon Cider Jelly
|Mushroom and Rocket Sushi
|Vietnamese Coconut Tartlets

To celebrate my blog’s 3rd birthday and thank all the readers of my blog, twitter followers and Facebook fans, I will be giving away a Mix CD of some tunes that I like to listen to while I am cooking. The tracklist will be a surprise (concealed in an envelope in the inside cover). All I will say is that it will be an eclectic range of instrumental tracks ranging from jazz, indie, electronica, math rock, post rock and post metal that I spent my summer break carefully putting together.
I also hand painted the artwork (I used oil paints), hand sewn the CD insert and handwrote the tracklist.
If you would like to win a Blue Apocalypse Cooking Mix CD, just write a comment below that contains the words “I want a Mix CD” and leave contact details (email/website/twitter handle).
This competition closes in 2 weeks at midnight on Friday 25 January AWST (Perth time). Winners will be drawn randomly and announced on Saturday 26 January.
There are three Mix CDs available and I will post to anywhere in the world.
p.s it has been a long time since I painted anything, what cover art do you think is the best?
