I have never felt a sense of achievement like this which must be really saying something.. like I’m not usually proud of the things I do. But this is different, because it’s macarons, and I never thought I’d be able to make them look like this again – I’ve only ever done it once before!
I’ve just finished my diet and have been craving sweets like no other! Sadly I think it’s pretty obvious that it’s bad to binge eat on the things you couldn’t eat right after your diet because it’s bad for your health and the weight will fluctuate…
But I looked in my fridge yesterday and I found lychees and decided that I wanted to make osmanthus jelly, which I haven’t eaten in a super long time!
Since my diet is so limited now I keep thinking every single day what can I eat, what should I eat for dinner.. and to be honest, it’s really quite annoying because I can’t eat this because it has this, or I can’t eat that because of that. One of the only things that I’ve allowed myself cheat on is fries, so I wanted to make a healthier alternative to that – yam fries! (find them)
I think this is the first time I’m posting something that I didn’t bake but actually cooked on here – what an achievement! I prefer baking over cooking because I like sweet things more, plus with baking you usually use the same ingredients (which I am guaranteed to have inside the house) whereas when you cook you can use so many more things. Baking is also more precise and exact, but cooking you can wing – I’m not too comfortable with that. Having said that, these meatballs are super easy to make and don’t take that much time, plus they’re healthy for you since you actually know what’s inside of them!
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!
