This is the time to use pantry staples and everything you had on the freeze. So I made this Yogurt and blueberry cake! Check it out!
February is here and the only special date that breaks up the month is Valentine's day. Needless to say not all of us want to celebrate this holiday, while others actually do enjoy the romance of the season. I'm of the opinion that any excuse to do something different is valid, so if you want … Continue reading 5 Dates with your Valentines / Gallentines
Yes, I finally ventured into the swiss roll situation and I'm happy to report it was success: Fully baked and no cracks! This time I've made a vanilla roll with a Strawberry Cheesecake filling and topped it all with a white chocolate topping. So let's say, as usual, I actually didn't plan on making the … Continue reading Strawberry Cheesecake Swiss Roll
Could've actually called that Coffee Cookie Cake, but then the title would be too long. So this one has a reason, and it is, I went to Portugal for a week on holiday! Yoohoo!!
So why did my usual cheap self decide to be fancy this time? Well I got invited to a baby shower, and since I really had no time to get anything else I just baked the cake, and if I'm doing just that I might as well go all out right?? I mean it's so supposed to be a delicious gift so it should be pretty and tasty at the same time!
It's that carrot time again! Carrot and Cheesecake squares recipe is here for Easter!
The blog is back! And this time it comes with booze for St. Patrick's Day!!!
I set my mind on making a Christmas sweet that I could serve for today's Christmas dinner party, so it had to be somewhat traditional, that I could make ahead of time, that was easy, fast and not so expensive. Honestly I guess I spent more time thinking about how to make it fast than actually doing it, so success. Black Forest Cupcakes are the shit!
So what can I cook that works as a desert/snack/cake, but it's nice and cold? Cheesecake! Yeah! So I did it, and I made it a banana cheesecake with chocolate cookie base, because banana and chocolate. No baking needed (no more heat in the kitchen) and it's so easy!
Strawberries everywhere! Isn't it awesome? Well I think it is! So this being the season to get some good strawberries at a reasonable price, this weekend I decided to put together a nice combo of Strawberry Cupcakes with Yogurt Frosting !
So there Easter goes and with it a full weekend full of delicious things to eat. For me it was no different, so I baked a Crunchy Chocolate Carrot Easter Cake.I made the cake version of this awesome moist Portuguese recipe for carrot cupcakes and I added to eat a bitter chocolate cookie frosting. Omg … Continue reading The Rabbit Side
End of the month right? Guess most of us are totally broke around this time, and I'm not an exception, definitely. So when it comes to cooking it's kinda awesome if you can bake something using mostly items you already have around the house and spare some bucks. So I managed to bake Banana Cupcakes with Devil's food frosting.
So I have been having a bit of a cookie monster phase, in that, I can't stop eating these Chocolate Nutella Cookies I made! They are crunchy , chocolaty and filled with Nutella, it just kinda makes it impossible for me to just leave them there sitting on the table. It has been also quite hard to edit these pictures without eating them at the same time.
So I found myself in a bit of a planning/cooking madness last week and that turned into a weekend of baking to test frosting and cupcake recipes and all that jazz. Result: 36 cupcakes on the table!
So Valentine's day came along and I guess chocolate is a must, right? Either if you are alone or you have a significant other, this day is just a good excuse to indulge on super moist fluffy cupcakes.
Getting a bit off topic today, so bare with me will you? Even if this will in fact be served with a side of a delicious recipe, today I'm up for showing you another side of my life instead, hence the title.
Hey you guys! Today I feel Oh My God Soooooo Bored! Well being like this made me want to write here again (even if the other post was quite recent) and shake things up a bit!
I'll start with one of my latest cooking whims.
