We love seeing your moments through #discoverbrisbane
What we personally love about Brisbane is that it's a growing city with new and exciting things happening, yet still retains it's laid-back nature.
The river that flows through Brisbane is pretty special, including all the many parks, and most importantly we love the friendly nature of the Brisbane locals.
Do you agree?
Tell us what makes Brisbane special to you and share your best tips below for food, coffee, spots to hang out, and whatever else you'd like to share 👇
CRISPY SESAME CHICKEN WITH A STICKY ASIAN SAUCE ~
5 tbsp olive oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tbsp cornflour (cornstarch)
10 tbsp plain (all-purpose) flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp garlic salt
2 tsp paprika
3 chicken breast fillets, chopped into bite-size chunks
1 tbsp sesame oil (optional - you can leave out and just sprinkle with plenty of sesame seeds at the end if you prefer)
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 tbsp Chinese rice vinegar (white wine vinegar will work too)
2 tablespoons honey
2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce (use more or less depending on the brand and how spicy you like it)
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoon brown sugar
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame seeds
Small bunch spring onions (scallions), chopped
Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan until very hot.
Whilst the oil is heating, place the egg in one shallow bowl and the cornflour in another shallow bowl. Add the flour, salt, pepper, garlic salt and paprika to another shallow bowl and mix together.
Dredge the chicken in the cornflour, then dip in the egg (make sure all of the chicken is covered in egg wash), and finally dredge it in the seasoned flour. Add to the wok and cook on a high heat for 6-7 minutes, turning two or three times during cooking, until well browned. You may need to cook in two batches (I find I can do it in one batch so long as it's no more than 3 chicken breasts). Remove from the pan and place in a bowl lined with kitchen towels.
Add all of the sauce ingredients to the hot wok, stir and bubble on a high heat until the sauce reduces by about a third (should take 2-3 minutes). Add the chicken back in and toss in the sauce to coat. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
Turn off the heat and divide between four bowls. Serve with boiled rice and top with sesame seeds and spring onions.
Tonight I dragged my husband along to see a documentary about the Chinese pre wedding photography industry called China Love. Given I am in the Australian wedding industry I had been very keen to see this and learn more about the Chinese weddings.
Not only was it about the present day but also about the cultural revolution 50 odd years ago. Some things I knew about but so much I didn’t.
A movie about culture, change, big business, pressure and love.
Highly recommend watching it if you get the chance.
After a crazy day in front of the computer today it was a great escape, plus I love being in the city after dark 💛

Do you have a friend that likes the same topics of conversation as you, that is easy to relax around and that likes prosecco just like you? 🎊💃🏽well I DO and we had a date today 😂😂.. it was such a gorgeous sunny day we decided to get out and have a relaxing afternoon and she loved that i surprised her with a bottle of @brownbrothers
Prosecco with orange and aromatic bitters (you should try it, it’s so refreshing especially now that is getting hotter) some yummy dips and corn crisps and of course tomatoes 😋... I think we need to make time to embrace friendship and the warm days do you agree?

From only 2 years ago when I decided to share a few pictures of cakes I did for fun while raising my little babies.... little did I know that I had actually conceived a 4th baby... baby BAKEDGC!
BAKED GC has grown so fast and is now the baby who supports my family. It allows me to follow my dreams while raising my family and I owe it all to everyone who has believed in me.
It has been quite the journey and It is only UP UP UP from here.
There aren’t enough words in the world to describe how grateful I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. #letsgetbaked
These golden egg yolk lava buns may appear docile, but beware their eruption upon biting. Highly recommend eating with chopsticks, lest you end up with lava all over your hands like I did, in which case lick away!
"Our show-stopper. These fluffy buns pack a decadent punch - a gooey, sumptuous custard and egg yolk paste awaken your taste buds as you bite into them. Consistently voted #1
custard bun in Singapore."
Great value at $4.80/3pc.

The Gold Coast beaches are covered with these little nasties at the moment after the storms from the last week. .
Congrats Jo! Such a great shot.
Enjoy your evening everyone and keep tagging your Aussie photos for a chance to be featured. 👌
