It’s too hot not to have ice cream! And with all the fresh fruit I have at home that is starting to go bad because we aren’t eating it fast enough, what better way to use it than turning it into ice cream form!
Dad loves watermelon. And snacking. What better than to make watermelon sorbet as a (very late) Fathers’ Day present? And I get to try out my ice cream machine too that I got for my birthday!
The first of two things I made today! A few weeks ago I bought 2 boxes of cake mix (I can’t bake cakes for my life and the cake mix is actually really good, even though it’s a bit sweet) to bake a birthday cake, but I never got the chance to do it. So I decided I should probably use the mix today and I decided to use the white cake mix to make some cupcakes!
Baking is always an excellent way to put off doing other things that you should be doing (ie. notes for an online course) and so I decided to make scones today since I already bought the whipping cream for it and I had time (or.. I made time for myself)- I was going to make a cake today but I realized I don’t have anywhere to store it tomorrow ==”
Mother’s Day just passed by, and I have to admit I felt slightly bad because I couldn’t really celebrate it with my mom. I got her a present but I had work that day so I couldn’t really have a nice meal with her or anything. So I thought about it last night and I decided to try to make cinnamon buns even though I haven’t made anything bread-like by myself before and we still have (a lot of) cheesecake at home. Because I should ‘try new things’.
We also got cake pops to celebrate my birthday. Well not really – I saw the cake pops a while back and I already really wanted to try, and found the chance when they said they had a sampler pack!
I haven’t given up! I’ve disappeared for a while but I am back… and it’s been a year since I really started trying to document everything here.
