Guest Post #9: Peanut Butter Quinoa Oat Muffins

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!

Peculiar-But-Cool Habits

Before I begin this post, I just wanted to link you all to a foodie interview I was lucky enough to do on the awesomely talented Maureen’s blog, The Orgasmic Chef!

If you want, you can check it out here – It was such a fun experience and I just wanted to shout out a big thank you to you Maureen for asking me 😀
An awesome experience 🙂

*************************************************************************
Now let the post begin 😉

What do you do that’s a little… off. Do you wear your shirt backwards because you like that side better, eat jam on both sides of your toast and secretly fancy 2 minute artery-clogging meals?

I am so totally not saying those are my secret habbits. Remember I am asking you 🙂

Personally, I think it is awesome to have little, how do I put this, eccentricities which make you totally unique. My family, as all families, are full of them 😀
Today I would like to show you one of my dad’s which he has genetically passed down to me. Parents, sheesh, whatcha gonna do with ’em? 😉

I ‘Oat’ To Get Into Shape

Sorry about that pun, but with all the oats I have just used over the past couple of days, it was really coming 😉

You remember my post from Sunday, also known as my last post to date?
You remember how it was all about my new love affair with cranberries? Well, Valentines may have come and gone, but nothing will extinguish how I feel about this gorgeous red fruit. All dried and pink, all red and round – either way, it is my new favourite 😀

210Sorry that really had nothing to do with this post – I was just once again putting out there how much those wonderful berries mean to me 🙂

Anyways let’s go back to yesterday, when all my troubles seemed so far away (that’s a lie, I am talking about Saturday ;)). I had an epiphany after seeing a post on the wonderful Averie’s site and it lef to me making a revamped version of her wonderful Blueberry Banana Microwave Oat Cakes. Why?

76Because I epiphanised (it is not a word mind you)

A Third Liebster + A Super Chewy, Super Tasty, Super Sugarless Treat

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for the support shown in regards to my last post. I feel much better now and know that there were a couple of slightly off points in that post. But you (and cheesecake) always make me feel better 🙂
For now, it is touchwood and good thoughts all the way.

Secondly, I am very very very happy to announce that I have received a third Liebster Award 😀
This time from the wonderful Little Housewife – This lady is the epitome of perfection. All her posts make me want to devour the computer screen but I really doubt I would get the flavour of her wonderful baking that way. Kind, sweet and with a fantastic sense of humour, she is like a baking idol!

blog award
To see the rules of this award, you can go to my first award post – not because I am lazy but it is actually quite a bit to rewrite out and my copy and paste is a little hazy on my computer (I actually did not know a problem such as that was possible ;))

16

So here are 5 people I would like to recognise as winners in blogging 😀

  1. The Unorthodox Epicure – Funny, awesome and a brilliant chef – there is really nothing else to say when it comes this guy’s fabulous blog 🙂
  2. Pasta Princess And More – I don’t know about you all, but ‘Pasta Princess’ is one of the coolest blog names I have ever heard 😀 – and on top of that, she can cook savoury and sweet to the boot!
  3. Simple Gluten Free Kitchen – Balvinder is one of the sweetest bloggers around – one of my first and top blogging friends, she is absolutely a delight and her recipes are truly made to fall in love with!
  4. Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes – Heather is one very talented chef – her ideas are unique and delicious and each time I visit her blog, she inspires me so much!
  5. Eliot’s Eats – I am not sure how many times I have sat and gone through the wonderful recipes on this blog – Sweet, savoury, delicious, more delicious – This wonderful couple make everything!

Congratulations to all you fantastic bloggers, it is much deserved 🙂

Now this will be a short post with a recipe that I made myself. *Applause* *Applause* 😛

I was looking all over for a healthy muesli bar recipe. I was looking for something filled with nuts, oats and cereals which could fill me up while I was studying and keep me focused (are you not proud) – I researched brands initially but I can eat all those preservatives in store-bought pastry and be healthier! And looking around on the web, I was not interested in recipes containing 1/2 cups of brown sugar and butter. Emphasis on the healthy aspect. So I decided to make my own. And I am pretty happy.

Feeling Healthy Pre-Formal

Two nights ago was one of the most anticipated events of my young life so far – my year 10 formal. The night was amazing at the beginning I have to say with all the fluttering and giggling and the ‘oh my gosh, you all look so utterly fabulous’ talking! Then, when we actually were inside, we were wowed by the decor – Vegas casino theme = martini glasses on tables, silvery balloon arch, gorgeous star themed light and a scattering of cards, poker chips and dice. Just try to picture it and I promise you, the hall we were in would look at least 10 times nicer (depending on the strength of your imagination of course :p)

10 Minute Microwave Apple Crumble

Actually Written: 22nd September 2011

I am a lazy person
There, I admit it. What are you going to do about it? Admit it. Sometimes waiting for an oven seems like a lifetime, especially when your batter is slowly decreasing in amount… That is where the microwave comes in.

Now I make many microwave desserts. A brilliant 5 minute chocolate cake, cheesecake and want to try brownies. The only thing that has failed is a peanut butter cookie. I want to add this to my repertoire. Simple, perfect and beautiful to eat.

This crumble is warm and tender and reminds me of a big hug at 12 midnight!
