Ask me anything, please!
I ♡ Cooking & Baking. Let's fill the world with some mouth-watering delicacies that will make you drool over your screen.
Seriously this time. Mainly, NO:
- White rice (Since this has been a daily serving since the day I was a kid, it was kind of difficult to let go at first. But I got through it with a constant reminder in my head that I have to let go, otherwise I’ll be going no where.)
Healthy option: Red/Brown rice, wheat bread
- Potato chip, fries, cookies, cakes, sweets, etc aka Junk foods! (I have no problem not eating potato chips and fries because I really don’t eat those things. But letting go of baking cookies and cakes was also difficult! In the end, I just had to because it’s for the best.)
Healthy option: Granola bars, corn flakes (without milk and/or not the frosted one), soda crackers
- Sugar. If you can drink your coffee without sugar, then skip the sugar. Besides, coffee tastes the best when it’s in its raw blend!
Healthy option: Honey, coconut sugar, muscovado sugar
- Fatty foods. I know most of you will hate me for this but try to avoid the bacon if you can. Does not matter if you scraped off the fatty lining, it still has oils that you don’t want your body to absorb.
Healthy option: Chicken, salmon, turkey
AND DON’T FORGET TO EXERCISE EVERYDAY! Even at least a 20-minute jog, it won’t kill you!
Those are the things I can think of right now, because those are the things I eat on a daily basis. So far, so good! I’ll just keep updating if something comes up! ;D
I’ve always wanted to experiment with colors on cupcakes and now that I found the time to do it, I dove into the whole idea! First of all, I know I have to use a lot of bowls and spatulas for this one, I didn’t realize it really was A LOT. Nevertheless, making rainbow cupcakes was the most relax I’ve had in the midst of school work piling and piling over.
So, the first rule, prepare all the ingredients and bowls needed. In this case:
5 spoons (to go hand-in-hand with the spatula)
small bowl for dry ingredients
small bowl for wet ingredients
Prepare all the ingredients according to recipe instructions, but I didn’t use a recipe anymore. I already have the recipe in my head! A must for baking/cooking! Memorize the ingredients by heart ❤
Don’t mind the messiness, it naturally comes with baking, and the fact that I used a lot of colors.
Pour each color carefully into the cupcake liners. I strategically followed ROYGBIV… but with 5 colors only.. xD and added chocolate chips in between colors!
For some gravitational reason, the batter swirled itself while I was adding them one by one.. Not complaining or anything, I like how it turned out!
After 5 hours of carefully preparing the batter, not to flatten out the air bubbles, I’ve created an army of Rainbow Cupcakes ready to spread happy rainbows all over!
I know the outer kinda turned a bit brown, it’s really like that. So when you slice the cupcake in two, SURPRISE!
Last rainbow picture before this post ends! :D
I bet you all are like this now:
