Well, this is short and sweet, but it is my first WIAW in a few weeks so I hope the amount of food I ate yesterday makes up for that. My family left today for Morocco on their four year diplomatic stint and we got to see them last night for the last time, so enter comfort food galore!
Ugh. It’s one of those days where my stomach is in knots, my head is pounding, and I’m waiting for all the balls to drop. I was already feeling like this yesterday when everything that could go wrong did, but luckily there were small glimmers of joy, such as cuddling with cats, a new gigantic flask from Man-thing (to keep me up to my gills in coffee during loadshedding), and these pops. I still haven’t gotten my hands on proper pop moulds, but I had enough of waiting for something that I’d been planning for ages, so this is my DIY version of deliciousness. Sadness, suck it!
I’ve been a cookie monster of late. I’m not sure whether it’s a sense of ennui that’s becoming overwhelming, with cookies as a temporary cure, or whether they’re just that bladdy good that they require their own food group. There’s always a middle ground to be had, but these cookies are no slackers in either department. Those bits of crushed meringue really make this a stunning little cookie, so let’s head over to the recipe! :) Continue reading
Crazy mode again! :D I was thinking of a super quick way to get some deliciousness in during the afternoons before embarking on the power walks around the neighbourhood a friend and I try and take during the weekdays, and this came up. I’m more often than not out of bananas and there are always apples for Man-thing’s daily fruit rations (since chocolate does not and should not count), so yum! The chilly drink with the warm cake bits… oh yes please!
If you are a regular to the vegan meringue-making way of things, as I have now become, then you’ll probably be left with more than your oven can handle. Enter (as always) ice-cream! Delicious, amazing, chocolate-y and creamy, absolutely beautiful brownie nut ice-cream :D Continue reading
I thought I could wait until tomorrow to share this but I just can’t. It’s SO GOOD! This is deliciousness and I am totally unapologetic for it. If you have popcorn, PB, chickpeas and chocolate make this now. You will not be sorry! :D
WIAW with a vengeance! Last week my attempts at WIAW were foiled by loadshedding and a feeling that I would essentially be spamming everyone with poorly-lit phone photos, but luckily yesterday was a public holiday so it looked a tiny bit better (but not much!), and thus I offer up my eats and treats :D
