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 😀 )
Enjoy the foodgasmic journey Aimee takes us on!
Every student needs a break and this time, when I donned my trench coat and fedora (I really didn’t!) the sky was pure blue, the sun was shining, people were grinning and the Wallabies were winning – pretty cool huh? Gotta love those big buff boys (I know I do!)
We were sitting so close!!!
There was so much atmosphere in the air, the stadium was totally packed and I legit lost my voice after screaming so much for the team! Yep, true I do not watch every rugby union game ever and yes, I do not get the sign language of the ref, but who cares because it just so so soo much fun!
But as much as I would love to talk about the green and gold spirit and the fact that Wales lost all three test matches against us (but whose counting? ;)), I do not think you are here to hear about that. I will admit though, grudgingly, that Wales lost only by 2-3 points each game but hey, loss is a loss no? 😉
Better luck next time (what a lie, I will still be rooting for Australia!)
Yoda: “Only the Dark Lord knows of our weakness”
In a galaxy not so far far away, the dark lord returned. Garbed in a dark covering, he beckoned using his force and the influence he wielded over the weak, the powerless to turn them into his minions.
Darth Vader: “You don’t know the power of the dark side!”
He crackled open, releasing a fresh intoxicating yet dangerous aroma and entrapping us in his aura. He hid his inner self behind a thick coat, but I could almost taste the creaminess of…
Wait. You thought I was talking about Star Wars? Emperor Palpatine come to turn Earth into a Death Star? Flashing neon light sabers with clashing cool colours? The death of Liam Neeson… I mean Qui-Gon Jinn?
Hahaha, this is far worse.
I got the idea from here – those are some talented and creative cooks at Two Peas & Their Pod! But that is where the similarities end between my milkshake creation and theirs… and that is a good thing for me 😛
Let me put one thing straight – I cannot consider this a milkshake. This is a THICKSHAKE. My straw was having trouble slurping this up so I basically ended up scooping it out and eating it with a spoon – and it was so worth it! Vying for the ‘Most Creative Chocolate Chip Dough/Cookie’ section winner, I can’t say this beats that double chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream (perhaps since I am a little partial to ice cream…) but it came very close.
See, I was a little apprehensive about this shake. Ever tried Max Brenner’s Cookie Shake? It tastes like Oreo cookies crumbled and drowned in a porridge consisting of rolled oats, weetbix and that gross Up ‘n’ Go! *Shudders*
Yes, yes I know it ALWAYS soothes pain. And today was no exception.
You see, I have a beautiful new phone and it refuses to sync with iTunes. My back up, songs etc. etc . are failing to back up.
I am a stressy person when it comes to these things in life.
Put two and two together and you will see that I am currently in quite the possition!!!
So I went to my trusty Nutella jar and ate a sandwich (bananas toasted with nutella in bread is quite the thing to usually perk me up)
Didn’t work – needed more Nutella and *GASP* pantry was empty. No this is not really a surprise since I refrain from buying too much Nutella due to my immense love for it.
So I thought and thought and with the banana brain food (I know it is a healthy sandwich deep down!) and remembered an idea I thought of a while back – Nutella Milk.
This is absolutely, definitely the last thing I make – I must not let baking distract my person! But dam, if I want to have something to lift me off my feet, this is the one!
I am not even going to give you a recipe for this. Just the inspiration which was from this brilliant genius of a blogger!!!
Honestly, hands up who has ever put in cereal when they make a milkshake? I have gone so far as to use chocolate and caramel ice cream, mars bars, chocolate syrup and homemade excess caramel syrup from this cheesecake but something as simple as beautiful cereal never even occurred to me!
