Food Porn

This post is actually going to start off more depressing than the title would have you know, so just be warned. The title is actually referring to the beauteous… um… beauty… of this salty, buttery ice cream that reminds you of dipping popcorn into your soft serve at the movies.

OH YEAH BABY! Sorry did I just foodgasm too loud for polite society? 😛

It is creamy and delicious, with a lot of different ways of changing it up for an even more fun treat. Keep reading to see more 🙂

A Party To Remember

Can I just rewind the clock and take it back to Christmas time of 2014? Can I take you back to reminisce about all that overeating and indulgent gift giving we all participated in for this post?

I was meant to do this post nice and close to New Years but then I saw running behind schedule, then I went to the Gold Coast and well… now I think I am on track!

I know it is not going to be a hardship or anything for you to turn back time again! Your Instagrams totally showed me how much fun you all were having!

And maybe… you saw mine?

Superfoods #3: Chia Seeds

Just a reminder, my newest giveaway is still running so if you haven’t entered already, go right ahead 😀

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

How lucky am I? A couple of days back, Justin from Cheap Super Foods Australia, contacted me, asking me to try some wonderful up and coming raw, organic ingredients from their huge range. As if I could turn down a huge opportunity like that! I know many bloggers, especially Vegan, focusing on all these new foods, so I knew I had plenty of inspiration to start making recipes.

But what are superfoods? Why is using them considered ‘super’ but using caster sugar, isn’t? We are not being ingredient-ist here, but the term ‘superfoods’ means that particular ingredient has been classified as Food with high nutrient and phytochemical content that may confer health benefits. It has few negative properties if any, considering it is highly unprocessed (natural), does not contain contaminants, saturated fats, artificial ingredients or food additives.” – Wikipedia

When I say ‘phytochemicals’, I mean naturally occurring beneficial chemical compounds in plants, such as antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and polyphenol. I used this think anything ‘organic’ equated in some way, to marijuana and hippie food, tasting like dirt despite any ‘benefits.’ Since I started food blogging, I have learnt a heck of a lot about all of it, and am glad to learn that is not the case! 😀

The wonderful folks from Cheap Super Foods sent me three different 250g samples:

  1. Cacao Powder
  2. Coconut Sugar
  3. Chia Seeds

Let’s begin making raw, organic, totally delicious desserts shall we?

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!

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! 😀 – 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 😀 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 😀

Think Pink!

We have so many celebratory options in October it seems it is not even funny. Any type of celebration you want seems to be available in this month which kind of makes it really awesome. If I be brutally honest, it should be a holiday month. Do tell the board of education that 😉

But seriously, let’s see, do you want…

  1. A scary movie marathon? – Halloween
  2. To stuff yourself like there is no tomorrow? – Thanksgiving (admittedly not for all countries, Australia included, but I go along with it anyway ;))
  3. To have a night to let loose – Octoberfest

Happy Belated Father’s Day

Ok, yes, it is so true, Father’s Day happened very much early September and yes, I am guilty of being late again but honestly can you blame me considering it was the weekend before my 2 hour maths exam? Haha nope didn’t think so 😉

This Father’s Day (2 weeks perhaps too late but still!), I decided to bake 2 pies in one oven (I hate the idea of killing two birds, I mean seriously, which sadist made that up? :P) and make not pies at all but ice cream 😀
