Meet ‘New Bloggers’ #46

Hello, new bloggers, old bloggers and all bloggers! ๐Ÿ˜€ Sorry, I am this hyper girl again. I am just so thrilled to have been able to finally complete this list of bloggers to share them with you today.

But first, I want to tell you something.

My boss announced additional five hours of work every week. It started this year and IT IS REALLY DISAPPOINTING. Sorry for shouting! I just can’t believe that I can’t spend that much of time with my love (a.k.a. the Kitchen). Less cooking, less baking and less blogging time. Can’t he understand that even without the additional five hours, I still can’t keep up with my blog? So I am struggling finding time with my blog, specifically this series.

I was planning to stop the series completely but my lovely cousin said ‘No’.

Me: You know what? I don’t know if I can keep up with the bloggers & the ‘Tricky Tuesdays’ series anymore. You know, it needs a lot of time and I cannot find even five bloggers a week toย introduce or interesting topics to discuss. Given this additional working hours, I don’tย know how will I be able to find time. I think I’ll have to announce it to my blogging friends that I will stop it completely. *sad face*

Cousin: You don’t have to stop it and you don’t have to post every single Monday or Tuesday of the month. You can still help/inspire/cheer up other ‘new’ bloggers by continuing what you do. Or you can still share those tips and tricks. You can post them anytime you are available.

That made me think and I said ‘Okay, because it’s difficult to abandon such series where I can make someone smile.’

So I am still here, and I hope you’ll still hang in there and continue to support this series (most especially our new friends).

Bringing you my first set of new found bloggers this year of 2016,

Meet New Friends 4

Veggielicious Moments

Meetย Svenja. She loved eating veggies since childhood. She rarely eat meat and fish. She uses plant-based and whole foods in her ingredients. No refined sugars and other naughty ingredients. ๐Ÿ˜€

“As a child, I already rarely consumed meat and fish, just because I disgusted the taste and its consistency. With the years, I automatically turned to be vegetarian.”

I know she loves food photography, too. Her photos are so enticing that makes me want to make this Sweet Potato Mango Coconut Spread and Dip. Yeah, you heard that right. I know you also want to check out the recipe, so go ahead and click that link. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Healthy with Anja

Anja is a Food Science and Nutrition student. She created her blog to share her healthy recipes to us. She is very passionate in preparing healthy and nutritious foods. Other than that, she also loves working out and inspiring others with her healthy, new creations.

“One day, I would love toย inspire others and help them change their lifestyles so they can become healthier, stronger and happier.”

And at first glance, you will think that this Protein Roulade with Blueberry Filling is made of naughty ingredients. Sorry to burst your bubble, but they sound more on the nice side for me and they look incredibly divine! Oh, I want a slice now… or two… or three? ๐Ÿ˜€

Aromatic Essence

Freda started her blog after joining a food group where she was inspired and motivated by a number of food bloggers. She learnt cooking from her mom and her mother-in-law.

“This blog is also an effort to document all the recipes Iโ€™ve learnt and that have been passed on to me by my Mom & Mom-in-law who are amazing Home chefโ€™s , Goan cuisineย being their fortรฉ, I will also be sharing some recipes inspired from the web along with a few of my experiments.”

I am really glad that Freda started her food blog so I can discover these adorable Milk Cream (Milk Toffee). When you look at them, they may seem difficult to make, but the recipe is super easy. Hmm, I wonder how many of these could I stuff in my mouth in one time? ๐Ÿ˜€

One Hand in a Cookie Jar

Charlotte believes that when a food doesn’t come from scratch, something must have got missed along that way. And though she loves healthy foods, she has that sweet tooth, too. ๐Ÿ˜€

“I have a deep love of cooking which can only be rivalled with my love of the gym. This is probably no bad thing as whilst I love eating healthy fresh foods, I also have a very sweet tooth which canโ€™t be denied.”

And her take on carrot ‘cake’ is too awesome with theseย Coconut Carrot โ€˜Cakeโ€™ Protein Energy Balls. They look so cute and sounds so healthy and delicious.

Food Blog Envy

This blog is by two lovely ladies named Claire and Sophia. They started the blog late last year. They love baking/cooking (obviously) and they love food photography as well. One of the things I love about this blog is it has very entertaining story/letter with a recipe. I mean, who doesn’t want a recipe along with a funny chitchat, right? ๐Ÿ˜€

“I love to eat but everything I eat instantaneously metabolizes and is assimilated into the swath of padding around my midsection. I am a well-cushioned young lady.” -Claire

And here’s what Sophie said about her Dad’s DSLR:

“Well, technically he purchased it for himself butโ€ฆmi casa es su casa, right? Soย for all intents and purposes, itโ€™s mine.” -Sophie

And because I love Speculoos and cheesecake, why don’t you see this Speculoos Cheesecake? Ohh, so divinely delicious!


And to my new found bloggers and friends, I am inviting you to join this wonderful virtual party called Fiesta Friday with so much lovely, gorgeous people. In this party, we don’t just drop our sweets and savouries, we have lots of chitchats and lots of fun! I hope you could join us! You can find the rules and guidelines in the Fiesta Friday link. See you there!

Wishing you a week full of smiles and awesomeness! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Hey, we connected just now through Instagram and now right here through our blogs… Wow, what a small world it is! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am glad my first blogger friend of 2016 — **Happy Hugs** ๐Ÿ™‚ Did I read 5 extra hours? Oh yes!! Hmmm…Not attractive.. ๐Ÿ™‚ But still, just remember, your work is obsession and your blog and cooking is passion…. Follow your passion by giving some sleepless nights..But never leave it… ๐Ÿ™‚ I too m sick of regular 8-9 hrs of daily job but after a tiresome day when I get back to my kitchen and tools, I feel relaxed and happy again. ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep cooking and Keep sharing! Loads of love to you!

    1. Hey there, lovely! Sorry, it has been a crazy week at work.
      I love how I manage to get my energy back after work when I know I’d be baking something delicious. I don’t mind having to spend time hours in the kitchen – I love what I do. ๐Ÿ˜€
      As for my additional working hours, I think I’ll get used to it… I hope.

      Thanks for the love and hugs… Sending hugs and love back to you. x

    1. He is not breaking some law yet. But it is still disappointing. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I am following your blog log before, but I’d love to take a visit again, Nadia. I will include you in my next episode (#47). ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I got a little extra – it doesn’t really pay off everything, but still Alhamdulillah. Thanks, Elaine. I just missed those me+kitchen bondings. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Ohhh… More work hours! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’m drowned with work as well these days and I feel exactly the same. I get leSs time with my blog and to chit chat ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Jhuls how come me never got onto your list of new bloggers *sad face* ๐Ÿ˜ข

    1. Hmmm, one of the ‘qualities’ when finding new bloggers/friends to introduce – they have not joined Fiesta Friday yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I am happy and flattered that you want to be a part of my list and I thank you for that. You will be on my list in my next post (#47). Sometimes, I ask people to bring me bloggers, too, or to bring themselves. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      And I think we need to do something about that more work hours! Hahaha! ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿป

  3. Another great roundup Jhuls! I usually only find new blogs from Fiesta Friday (otherwise I normally just look at what is in the reader), so it’s not too often a discover a new blog!
    That’s too bad about the extra hours ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I love your cousin’s advice though–they’re such great series and I’d be sad to see them go! I hope you still find the time to do what you enjoy, whether it be cooking or blogging or baking or finding new bloggers or taking some time to relax!

    1. Thank you so much, Laurie. And I am happy that I am one of the bloggers who brings new friends to you. ๐Ÿ˜€ Hopefully, this series will stay. ๐Ÿ˜‰ x

  4. Thanks so much for featuring my blog , Jhuls! I’m really honored! I have been thinking of joining Fiesta Friday soon, hopefully will do so next week:) Heading over to all these amaizing blogs! Have a beautiful week ahead:)

  5. Noo, you can’t give up! This is such a great way to not only help others discover new blogs, but also show a little bit of love to new bloggers because we all know how hard it can be just starting out. I hope those pesky 5 hours don’t cause too much trouble.

    1. The only trouble I am facing is I miss the me+kitchen bonding. I can’t do so much now especially when I am very exhausted that even if I force myself to bake/cook, I just can’t. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Thanks a lot, Justine. I appreciate your support a lot. x

  6. 5 hour extra sucks. I work more 100 hours a week and it’s al ways a struggle to find time. : (

    I only just realised you have tricky Tuesdays! Would love to join your Fiesta Friday and I’ll certainly be moseying the other bloggers you mentioned. More recipes, Yay! Thank for sharing , Jhuls.

    1. I know, right? I hope he comes to his senses and bring back the working hours we used to have. But more than 100 hours a week sounds more terrible. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

      As for the Tricky Tuesdays, it been a really long time that I haven’t made a post. I have topics in mind, but never got the chance to put them in writing until it fades away from my brain. (Sigh!)

      I hope you find time to join Fiesta Friday. Thanks for stopping by, Ann! I wish you a lovely week! x

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts...
