Okay,

So, it is safe to say that last night was pretty crappy for me. Aside from the usual nightmares that I get where I am being chased by a ghost (after of course, I watch some gruesome horror flick), I was actually waking up to something worse.

MOSQUITOES!

They are plain creepy!

PERIOD!

I mean, come one!

Dear mosquito,

You may consider yourself a vampire, but unless you look as hot as Damon Salvatore,

YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED IN MY ROOM!

So, for wannabe vampires as these,

I have this amazing device, it looks more like a tennis/ badminton racquet and there’s this nasty electric current that passes through the wires.

Bwahahahaha….. Call me evil.

But I absoluetly cannot stand these bloodsuckers.

Imagine my relief when at 3 am, I groggily decide to play ‘Who’s the boss?’

The battle was won and I slept peacefully after! 😀

and then I woke up to these yummy beauties!

😀 😀 😀

breakfast cookies

OMG….these cookies are sooooo good! and you can pop these in your mouth without any guilt. They are wholegrain!!! 😀

They have everything that a perfect breakfast should have…..

Oats, Honey, Raisins, Wheat flour.

Check the Video Tutorial Here:

Well,

If you are still confused, I have the full recipe here with the exact measurements that I used.

I got about 20 cookies with these.

Breakfast Cookies

Ingredients:

100 gms wholewheat flour

100 gms butter (CHILLED)

100 gms sugar plus more for sprinkling

50 gms watermelon seeds (you could use any seed or nut on the face of the earth!)

50 gms oats (I used strawberry flavoured oats)

a handful of raisins

2-3 tbsp honey

2 egg yolks

Method:

Rub chilled butter into the sieved wholewheat flour. Do not over work the flour. Rub it enough for the mixture to resemble breadcrumbs.

Add the oats and seeds/nuts into a blender and pulse till you get a fine powder. Add it into the mixture.

Throw in a handful of raisins and add the honey.

This is the time you can get creative. Add any thing that you’d like. 😀

You could include fresh fruits like a mashed banana or some fresh blueberries, even flaked almonds or coconut for that matter.

The result will be just yum!

Once that’s done, add the egg yolks and combine. DO NOT KNEAD the dough.

Place it on a floured surface and flatten it out and cut shapes.

Place it on a greased tray and sprinkle some sugar for a crisp top.

Bake in a preheated oven of 200 C for about 15-17 minutes!

Yay!!!!!!!

Today is the first time ever that I am enjoying my Sunday! Usually, I am bored to the point that even looking at my purple wall (which is not so purple anymore) seems interesting. :O

I mean , seriously! There is absolutely NOTHING to do!

No ‘One Tree Hill’ episodes, no ‘Masterchef USA’.

Only sad, soppy movies with a weird melodramatic background music play all day long!

Yeah well, my mum loves watching these kind of movies!

So, at least someone’s enjoying their Sundays! 😛

That brings me to today’s post!

A very Happy Mother’s Day to all mums on the planet!

This recipe goes out to you! 🙂

How To Make Dulce De Leche

dulche de leche04final   So, It was a pretty awful day today!

I mean it’s not like the end of the world or something (that was a huge false alarm by the way!) 😛

Okay, so back to the topic… I have no clue as to what’s wrong but there seems to be some tax issue going on here and all the stores have been shut down INDEFINITELY! 😮

Again, It isn’t the end of the world as my mum keeps repeating like its some sort of a mantra

and it really does

NOTHING TO HELP ME!

I mean there are a ton of things I need to buy and such INDEFINITE strikes are enough to dampen my spirits!

It’s already so hot outside!

AAH GOD! If you are reading this blog please END THIS STRIKE SOON! I need to shop! 😦

😀 😀 😀 What ?

It’s all important stuff okay!

I promise!

(Maybe not! )

Anyway, thank Heavens I had a can of condensed milk at home

! An absolute savior!

Well, I baked a batch of these AMAZING CUPCAKES using this healthy recipe for walnut butter I made earlier and the dulce de leche recipe that I am about to show you!

Since I had nothing to do, I started toying with the idea of making dulce de leche at home!

It’s really simple and all you need is an oven and some condensed milk and you’re good to go.

So here’s a step by step guide for recipe for dulce de leche.

Oh, for those who do not know what Dulce De Leche is, it is basically milk caramel. It is made by slowly cooking sweetened milk for hours and hours together.

Obviously I couldn’t do this on the stove. My mom would pack my bags and throw me out of the house for using the stove for such long hours. I chose the oven instead. Recipe for Dulce De Leche: dulche de leche01final   Fill water into a dish and place another dish in it. almost like a water bath.

how to make dulce de leche

condensed milk.

Pour in the condensed milk. dulche de leche03final   Cover with a foil. Bake in a Preheated oven of 220 degree Celsius for about 60 to 90 minutes. dulche de leche04final   I do not like it when my dulce de leche takes a deep brown color.

I like it when it gets a little ocher in shade. There is also a reason why I did not let it brown a lot. you will know it too this Sunday. 🙂

This recipe for dulce de leche is as easy as pie.

all you need to do is pour the can of condensed milk and pop it into the oven while you look after all the other chores and of course sulk that all the stores are closed.

You know once this is out of the oven and cooled, you will have something to go with your sulking! 😛

The jar is half finished already!

And my mum had to literally steal it from me( because I need it this Sunday).

So, I guess I’m going to write a letter to whoever I should be writing one to complain about this INDEFINITE STRIKE!

I’ll meet y’all this Sunday with an amazing Cupcake recipe along with a VIDEO TUTORIAL. Trust me ! You do not want to miss it! 🙂

Until then,

Buh Bye
