As you could have noticed, I haven’t posted as many blog posts as I intended to do over the past two months. Because I started a new job with busy schedules, I didn’t have the time on my agenda to focus on my blog. But hopefully, with the holiday season coming up, I will be able to share with you some of my favorite recipes for the holidays.
Sorry for having been missing in action in August but I was extremely busy and I didn’t have enough time in my agenda to blog. However, in September, I will try to do my best to supply my blog with more recipes and reviews.
There is a category of foods that you know is bad for your health but you can’t deny yourself the pleasure of eating and enjoying them. And condensed milk is among those ingredients. Be honest, haven’t you ever had a spoon of condensed milk straight from the can? I know I have. And on numerous occasions because condensed milk is one of my many guilty pleasures.
I have a confession to make. I hate bananas! In fact banana is probably one of my least favorite fruits. I just have a complex relationship with bananas; I hate eating them but I’m also aware of their positive benefits on people’s health. I think the only time I could find myself willingly eating bananas is when I’m working out because bananas are a great energy supplier. Most of the time, I hate bananas in fruit salads (too mushy to look appealing for me), drinks, smoothies, ice creams or yogurts. Without even trying to taste it, I was categorically opposed to the idea of eating banana bread. And it wasn’t as if my sister, who loves everything bananas, hadn’t tried to convert me.
Who doesn’t love Nutella? I haven’t met a lot of people who disliked Nutella. I’m among the group of people who would put Nutella on almost everything from bread slices to crêpes, not to mention using it as a dipping for fresh fruits like pear, apple and banana.
If I was asked to name one of my favorite spices, I would without a doubt choose ginger. It’s an aromatic root that adds additional flavor to basically everything from stir fries to smoothies. Maybe that’s why this ginger cake recipe is one of my favorite desserts. It’s a very simple cake with a lot of flavor thanks to the combination of spices used in the batter. Disclaimer, if you aren’t not an adept of spices or spicy food; you would certainly not enjoy this recipe as much as someone who tolerates spices would. However, give it a try and you will not be disappointed. It’s a perfect cake that goes well with a cup of coffee as well with a cup of tea. But I enjoy it better with coffee.
