So lately I’ve been doing a lot of baking. Call it nesting, boredom or call it the pregnant lady likes baked goods and therefore has to keep up with the demand. The demand from herself. Yes, I just referred to myself in the third person. Anyway, I digress.
Back to the baked goods.
Then there was Shelley’s Lemon Slice. Oh. My. Goodness. It’s like Shelley knew of my crazy pregnancy craving for anything lemon and put that recipe up just for me. Well that’s what I like to think anyway! You can go HERE for the recipe.
Now the only thing I would change about this recipe, I’d make double the icing. Why? Well after all my ‘taste testing’ of the icing I only just had enough to cover the slice!
So I’ve now made the Chocolate and Coconut Slice 4 times and this morning I’m going to make the Lemon Slice for the 2nd time. And I can’t guarantee there’ll be any left by the end of the week. Ok, by Wednesday. Oh who am I kidding, by the end of the day!
Do you bake? What recipe should I try next?
Last night I got an insight into what it would be like to be a contestant on MasterChef. Maybe just without the cameras, the fancy ingredients and cooking to win $100,000, but damn it there was pressure! So what did I do? I cooked dinner, a proper dinner for THE FIRST TIME EVER!
Ok, so maybe it wasn’t exactly like being on MasterChef but this was a big step for me!
You think cooking dinner isn’t a big deal right? WRONG! Did I mentioned it was THE FIRST TIME EVER! Yes I’ve cooked before, well more like just put things in the oven and the microwave or baked cupcakes and cookies but last night was different, it was a REAL dinner!
So here’s my MasterChef spiel on ‘my dish’! Spinach, ricotta and fetta cannelloni topped with tomatoes and mozzarella with a side garden salad with balsamic vinegar.
And guess what?! It was delicious! If I do say so myself. So now my future children can enjoy cannelloni as well as cookies and cupcakes!
Oh and I even cleaned up too! Number 1 future wife of 2009. I think so!
