Ginger Crunch Slice

Where is the year going?
The busier I get the faster it seems to go. And it’s not about to slow down any time soon. I don’t think I have a free weekend until October.

Last weekend B and I traveled to cairns for a quick getaway to celebrate five years together. It was quite exciting as we’ve never been to cairns. I got to go to the virgin lounge with B as he has a membership which was definitely fun. In Cairns we went on the Skyrail to Kuranda then caught the train back.

The views were absolutely beautiful and worth the anxiety the Skyrail trip gave me. I don’t deal well with heights.
Even the views from the airport were pretty.

While I’m not the biggest fan of flying I must say I do enjoy the view of the land and the clouds from above. The lovely view of the coast and the beautiful patterns the hills form in the land below.
Onto this weeks recipe.
This is one of my favourite slice recipes. It’s very easy and tasty to boot. Best of all I tend to have the ingredients on hand.
