Today in my kitchen I was looking through recipe idea’s I put together and came across this…”Bacon cupcakes w/ Banana Buttercream topped w/ Peanut Butter drizzle + Chocolate Ganache” I couldn’t think of a better recipe to ‘TEST’ bake; in WinniE’s Bakery kitchen, today.
When it comes to recipes, I draw inspiration from everywhere. I could eat something that I cooked myself or had a restaurant, I could think of something that my Nana used to make for me when I was a child or I could see something on TV; it really can come from anywhere at any time. I always try keep my notebook with me. As of right now, I am deeply inspired by everything that’s happening around me, that’s the magic of SPRING! It’s rebirth, regrowth and renewal, I am so grateful for spring. Remember now, I am in April baby. So, currently I’m writing about 1-2 recipes everyday, sometimes even 3. I hope I didn’t just jinx it!
Hello everyone, happy Monday! Here in Maryland we are having snow, about 5-10 inches, depending on where you live.
Even though I plan to have my more indulgent recipes on either Friday or Saturday, I decided what the hell it’s a snow day, let’s have PANCAKES! I am a big believer in the 80/20 rule, the 80/20 rule is 80% conscious healthy living and the 20% is living life and enjoying whatever that is. So, although most of my blogs recipes will be very health-conscious + figure friendly, a small portion will be delicious, indulgent + absolutely delectable recipes! So here is one of both me + my family’s favorites: Honey Coconut Pancakes w/ Raspberry Syrup!
Hello everyone, I hope everyone’s had a wonderful week. I wanted to start my blog off with a post about something I am passionaste about…FOOD! As a Type 1 diabetic and FFK or “former fat kid”, I have found the things that work for me and that really enjoy them in the healthy lifestyle I now lead. I take conscious measures to fill my pantry and fridge with healthy and delicious foods (cause if it doesn’t taste good…I won’t eat it, let’s just be honest!!) If you’re new on this journey of liveing a healthy and conscioud lifestyle, I do realize it takes some time to get used to new healthy foods. Also, I know it can be a MAJOR CHALLENGE to bringing yourself out of the negative habits and choices you made in your lifestyle before. But here are some things I’ve found work for me: I have a high-protein, high-fiber and high water content diet. I love to eat lots and lots of veggies, lots and lots of fruits and lots of lots of lean protein, such as Chicken, fish, seafood, yogurt and various types of nuts…hahaha. In a later post I will give you a full and detailed breakdown of what I like to incorporate into my diet. I’m a big-time foodie and I am also I skilled and long-time lover of ALL things “baking”. But we will dive into that later. I love to make my own snacks and meals; especially if I’m cooking for my entire family (which I usually I am). But for now I will share with you a simple + delicious healthy snack. Thank you!
Today’s Snack: Strawberries, Bananas + Raspberries fruit bowl…delish!
