My goal is not to be depressed this winter. It may be inevitable that I have my bouts of sadness but I must press forward, get over it, and start again.
I only have two kids. A two year old and an almost five month old. Two grumpies does my head in and I tend to head to the kitchen for comfort.
Comfort food. All the way. Of course it cheers me up! I need something now. Not complicated recipes. Easy ones. Decently quick. Ethan can help stir.
I reckon a baked good from my kitchen is better than a snickers bar from the store. I control how much margarine and sugar goes into it and I can add healthy extras.
Here are three goodies I am hoping to execute this weekend. I want it all to be mine! The boys can have the carrot muffins I made this afternoon…
I LOVE LOVE LOVE donuts.
This seems to be a good alternative to frying. Recipe and photo credit found here.
Mini Pumpkin Pies.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE pumpkin pie!
Made in a muffin pan, I will follow the pumpkin filling recipe that is on the can.
For the pie dough, I always do 125g margarine, 1TBS white sugar, 3dl flour and 3TBS water. Maybe a dash of cinnamon for fun.
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I NEED NEED NEED chocolate. A lot of it. Addict? Maybe.
I have never made double chocolate cookies before. To be honest, I have not made cookies in a very long time. Tesco does good ones. But I ran out. Recipe I am attempting found here.
Okay, three recipes might be a bit over-ambitious but these delicious morsels are in my near future. If these turn out as fabulous as I dream they will be, I will post recipes onto my other (housewife) blog: www.mycherryavenue.blogspot.com
It is another beautiful autumn day. Me and the boys are heading out for a walk. A deep breath of fresh air also instantly calms frayed nerves. Have a lovely weekend! x
