Lest we forget.

Guest Post #4: Satisfying a Craving, The Healthy Way

Bonjour mes cheris, get excited for me! After I finish these exams I am wading through right now, half of year 12 will be forever finished and over with! YAY!

Mais non, focus, FOCUS! It certainly is not over yet no matter how much I dream about year 12 formal. Ah, c’est la vie!

Anyhow, while I am not here to give you recipes, tips, tricks and well, my blog, I have some pretty fan-friggin-tastic fabulous chefs lined up to do so instead! A whole range of dishes for you to enjoy while I am on this undesired break ;) – You won’t even notice my absence I promise!

See you soon for the April holidays and wishing you all a marvelous Easter break! Promise me you will chow down on what that Easter Bunny brings you/your chocolate loot stashed in the bottom of your drawer – Yes, I am on to you all :D

Getting down and healthy seems to be the newest trend these days, keeping that stomach trim and those intestines fresh and detoxed now and again. I am all for getting on this though I prefer my sweets with real butter and real sugar, with my usual return being more exercise. 

I think I may have found someone to convert me. Meet Bek from one very healthy, Aussie blog, Crave! :D – She has goals to maintain, a fitness regime BUT makes some out of this world food without the usual fatty ingredients!

Why am I even talking? See for yourself with her healthified and incredible rendition of Rocky Road Ice Cream! 

****************************************************************

Hey guys! Are you craving something cold, icey, satisfying, sweet..but healthy? Well ladies and gentlemen, I’m here to tell you that you CAN have it all.

But before I fulfil your wildest dreams let me introduce myself- My name is Bek and I’m behind the blog Crave!

First Summer Ice Cream

Ok so guess what guys, it’s guest-post request time!!! So next term are my half yearlies and being in year 12, they will be more than incredibly hard so I have to organise my guest posts now so they can keep my blog semi-going during said awful period ;)

Here are the details:

  • Due Date: I must have it by 26th January – I start school soon after – blech!
  • Subject of Guest Post: Anything as long as there is a recipe involved (savoury, sweet, beverage – your choice)
  • Requirements of Guest Post: Not absurdly short and at least 5 photos of your finished dish/method and 1 photo of yourself (if you are comfortable with it of course!)
  • How many do I need: 6 people – I already have Carla @ Eat Sweet and Bek @ Crave so 6 more would be fantastic
  • What to do: Basically, the first 6 people to email me at gobakeyourself@yahoo.com.au will be granted the spot – excess emailers will be put down and contacted for next time I have exams (which I promise you, will continue to come, trust me!)

So if you can, please contact me asap and once I have all future guest posters, I promise to send out a confirmation email :D Thank you!

Now that business out of the way, please enjoy the recipe to come!

Maybe because of my recent trip to India, but I recently realised that I may not have made any ice cream. And we are halfway into the beautiful season of summer with high temperatures, pools and shorts.

You may call me crazy, actually throw rotten tomatoes at me and look at me with disgust. Because summer and ice cream are as inseparable as Jekyll & Hyde. Though ice cream is Hyde because it is the evil – the beautiful, addictive, rich, creamy evil for the hips, thighs and stomach. Oh well, good with the bad ay?

May I just say though, that the recipe I am about to give to you more than makes up for the time lost? I hope I am not being presumptuous… Haha, who am I kidding, I know I am not being presumptuous :D

Nothing Says Thank You Like Ice Cream

My blog now is almost half a year old. Even as I say it I cannot believe how much it has grown since then. From grotty pictures and posts which lasted one paragraph to a slightly more sophisticated style of photography and ultra long posts which I sincerely hope entertain you.

It is necessary though to say that I would never have lasted so long if it weren’t for all of you – the food blogging community – and my friends and family (who go without saying :D)

Nutella Baking Week Continued: Nutella Ice Cream

Before the real post begins, I am sorry to say I won’t be able to show you any frozen ice cream ball photos since it needs to freeze overnight or at least 5-6 hours and I won’t be home tonight to do the blog post. Sincerest apologies. But you won’t be angry in the first place.

Evaporated Milk + Nutella + Ice Cream Maker = Nutella Ice Cream

Burning And Berries

Today, the weather is scorching. I am talking hitting up in the 30s, flies galore and my feet unable to touch the pavement.

Pool, fans, ice cold water – it is all useless today and though I was planning on pulling down my Christmas tree today, it just didn’t happen. These hot days make me want to sit around with the AC on full blast while I eat thick juicy grapes and ice cream with no limit.

I am feeling so lazy today that I am not even posting this blog post till now, when I actually should have done it at least 4 hours ago. I had the pictures (which were taken quite quickly due to the unbearable heat) ready to go and when I sat down on my laptop, BAM – I fell asleep *smiles sheepishly*

15Anyway, this very UV morning, I was lounging around, enjoying a bowl of ripe, sweet strawberries when it hit me. It hit me with fever so hot it was if I had swallowed the sun which is currently outside my window. I wanted perfectly creamy strawberry ice cream.
