R.I.P Cory Monteith – Though personally, I was never a Glee fan, I appreciated his multiple talents, and know his loss will be greatly felt by many.

So a couple of weeks ago, Aimee Hughes contacted me. A blogger from The Sexy Vegan Kitchen, she had released a new cookbook and asked me to review it! So I have decided to make 3 or 4 (depending on my time) recipes from her cookbook before giving it an overall review! 🙂

The name of Aimee’s fantastic cookbook is The Sexy Vegan Kitchen: Culinary Adventures In Love & Sex, and just like the title tells us, she does mix together the euphoric nature of sex with the deliciousness of her recipes to create a completely foodgasmic experiences, just begging you to read it and make its recipes!

In a couple of recipes time, I shall tell you a little about what this book offers,  the way it allows you to heal your skills in your love life and health life :)  – But shhhh, … Spoilers… (If you understand this reference to Doctor Who, you and I are already best friends by the way, not optional :D  )

I hope you get my message and just how much I appreciate everything you do, be it stuffing chia seeds down my throat or bringing me tea and biscuits when I am sick 😉

Lots of love ❤

Baking Impulsively Means Eating Compulsively

Everyone, get ready to gasp – what in the world is a senior student who has her university life hanging by a thread according to her studies at high school in her senior years doing posting on the first day of a school week? Shock, horror, the world is coming to an end – why, she should be hitting those maths text book which weigh heavier than a computer and bustling around researching haemoglobin or something as such.

Oops, oh well, I think I will survive since I am that senior in question 😉

41You may remember that a couple of weeks back I had a Nutella Baking Week. Good times right? Well, I mentioned that I would be unavailable for World Nutella Day and it was true, I was supposed to be but sometimes things happen and you come home one day too early (she is taking holidays too? For shame! :P) – this was the case with me and finishing all my homework happened first (I am not a complete female version of that rebel without a cause you know) and then even after driving, having time to whip up a little Nutella snack. Well, a snack I didn’t follow the recipe at all too 🙂 – Gotta love impulsive forgot-to-print-recipe cooking aye?

Nutella Baking Week Continued: Nutella Kheer (Rice Pudding)

It’s time to vitalise, rejuvenise and exercise and… wait. Who am I kidding? It feels like it’s 100 degrees (C) here!!! Sorry, the word I was trying to find was

It’s time to traditionalise 😀

How could this Nutella baking week even think to continue without putting in a total desi (Indian word for patriotic) dish right? So I had a trawl through the web, searching for all the favourites like gulaab jamun and rasgulla and even laddoo, putting a ‘Nutella’ in front. I won’t say there were no entries but certainly none I deemed trustworthy. And none that had any pull or persuasive food photos. Boring!

510Finally, I came to kheer, and from memory, Google came up with an error. I was about to give up on this idea of mine when I realised that the Western world did have their own versions of something called rice pudding. And rice pudding is kheer. For crying out loud, I have seen pumpkin kheer (I mean rice pudding :P)

A Thicker, Richer Nutella

This is a quick post really – I have cooked and baked a lot more today but since it is for a very special Christmas party, I wouldn’t want to spoil the sweet surprises.

Anyway, you may be pondering over my title – totally understandable – how can this gooey, apparently-for-breakfast spread become a richer and more decadent version of itself?

Quite easy actually and can be done in 2 ingredients (the third is optional) – just make Nutella into Nutella Mousse.

35Amazing what a little (seriously, not much) thickened cream will do when it works its magic with runny Nutella in the comfort of a very cold fridge. What results is a super smooth, perfectly textured mousse which is eggless and gelatin-less and made super fast and super easily.

Easter = Chocolate = Mousse And Eggs

Actually Written: 29th April 2011

Wow, a Coles recipe worth hugging to your heart! This cake was made to
(and totally did) show the enormous number of Aunties and Uncles who show up for the annual house party just how
much you’ve grown without the awkward questions, the inevitable ‘school must be
getting serious speech’ and the occasional body check given by the Aunties very
close to you.

sdf

You know how this cake avoids all that? Well geez, how can you
miss it? The cake looks awesome, almost resonates with mouse-ly fluffiness and
did I add the fact that it’s chocolate? Totally an attention stealer!
