I am very much a breakfast person and I need something to keep me full all morning to prevent me from snacking at night. My go to is scrambled eggs on toast with avocado. It is so satisfying but I really fancied something sweet today.
I was definitely due a healthy bake. Theres been too much sugar going round lately and my babies are in need of some healthy snacks. I feel bananas and bread are top favourite foods when it comes to babies and toddlers so combining the two, I cant go wrong. And they really did love it.
Another occasion, another edible gift. Its fathers day and I have two men to cook for. My father and my children’s father. My dad LOVES cheesecake, as I said in my last post, I love a special occasion to be inspired by peoples favourite deserts. It helps me try new things and gives me a challenge.
Have you ever had a giant Millies cookie? I have had many and I just needed to make one of my own. I have bought these in the past for a Christmas gift but they are easy enough to make myself so why not.
Not everyone loves coconut. In fact a lot of people hate it, so this post may not be for you 🙂 however if you (like me) love all things coconut then you will loves these cookies. They have a very intense coconut flavour and even has hints of coconut texture.
I once made these for a friends wedding however the naughty kind with butter, sugar and more butter on top. They were seriously amazing and my favourite cupcake flavour. With freshly chopped strawberries the taste is like no other.
I promised my gym crazy little brother I would make this cake for his birthday. Unfortunately I’ve been away around his birthday so its a little late but better than never hey.
I can only assume he takes after me with his health conscious eating. So this cake had to be on the healthier side. I’m actually really surprised at how absolutely delicious this cake turned out – thats why I’m posting about it. It was moist. It was decadent.
Well what a busy few weeks I’ve had, hence the lack of baking lately. I’ve visited 2 of my favourite places – Amsterdam and Portugal. It has been truly amazing. Amazing to do something other than be in the baby bubble i’ve been stuck in for so long and to be able to have fun again and forget about nap schedules and healthy eating. I have come back feeling more calm and easy going. It feels like things have been put into perspective. And boy did I treat myself to some amazing food.
Okay there were too many adjectives to describe these cookie. I had to ditch the chewy and the healthier from the title so I’ll just inform you about those aspects right away because they are very important ones. These cookies do not taste healthy, even my sugar fiend of a boyfriend likes them.
So I’ve been eating really healthy lately but I’m going to Amsterdam this weekend for my birthday – extremely exciting for me and I cant stop thinking about all of the amazing corner street bakeries they have there. If you’ve ever been to Amsterdam central you will surely remember the huge chocolate covered waffles, cakes and giant pastries. Everything was just huge. I cant wait to get some inspiration while I am there.
