My This week I’m craving posts have been hijacked today so that I can post an In My Kitchen story on the earliest day of the month ever! Somebody give me a pat on the back, I’m grinning from ear to ear. And although the date doesn’t really matter, I just like giving myself arbitrary deadlines. It gives me a sense of job satisfaction and makes my boss happy (and yes, that’s me)!
This month I’ve got a few very interesting things I have been sent as well as some of my own possessions that have been hanging around my kitchen, let’s dive in. (more…)
Last week you’ll recall I was craving medjool dates.
Shortly after that confession went live I got a text from my awesome friend Hanna with a recipe for raw fudge brownie and a command-slash-challenge of “Cravings Be Gone!”.
I immediately liked the sound of the ingredients list, but I liked the super short method even better.
Chuck stuff into the food processor, whizz, chill for 2 hours, eat.
I’d like to say that I patiently waited the 2 hours, but that would be a lie. I greedily gobbled about a quarter of the mixture after attempting just a tiny taste before putting it in the fridge.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Deliciousness awaits. (more…)
Woo hoo, I’m back on track with my monthly In My Kitchen posts.
April features lots of personal items and only one ‘gifted’ one. I haven’t had much good stuff landing on my desk lately, so I’m sorry I don’t have a whole heap of new bits and pieces to alert you to.
Never mind, you can check out my personal stuff instead… (more…)
Medjool dates taste exactly like natural caramel, don’t you agree?
Think carefully about your answer, you are dealing with a hormonal prenant lady.
You do think they taste like caramel? Me too! Let’s be friends :)
I’ve mostly been eating them straight up as a snack, but have also chucked them into a banana and date loaf, healthy truffles, the base of cheesecakes and in a very yummy breakfast cous cous dish I came up with a few years ago. (more…)
Do you think it’s a coincidence that my body is craving chocolate this week?
Buying all these chocolate gifts for people doesn’t help. I find myself thinking, hmmm I wouldn’t mind eating this.
So far I have resisted buying any chocolate for myself. I’ve told myself I can’t eat any until the festive weekend (which technically, starts today) – and, um, we’ll just pretend I didn’t sneak a small piece of yesterdays chocolate crepe cake, OK?
This weekend I am making tiramisu for a bunch of friends and plan to use the best quality raw cacao powder I can get my hands on for dusting. Then top it with thick shavings of some decadent dark-as-I-dare chocolate. Can’t wait! (more…)
