It’s father’s day, and my whole family is getting together at my aunt’s to celebrate. I figured it would be the perfect time to try out this cool recipe I found on Pinterest.
Basically you make a whole bunch of Jell-O, four to six different colours, you wait until they set, and then you cut them up in cubes and put them in a big baking pan.
Doesn’t it look so pretty? I didn’t leave mine for enough to set completely, so mine was a little bit of a mess so far, (i.e.. doesn’t look as pretty as this one above), but it still looks good!
Then you mix unflavoured gelatin with sweetened condensed milk and water, and it creates a white base. Leave that to set in the fridge and voila! You are done.
Such an artsy dessert! Hopefully mine turn out this well tonight! For full directions, check out the source!
P.S. 6 days until I join team inked: I’m getting so excited for it!
I have a strong love for chocolate. Always have, always will. And this is my absolute favourite dessert ever - chocolate lava cake. You get cake AND a delicious serving of chocolate goo.
Here’s the recipe that I use, it’s from Ghiradelli’s website:
6 oz. of 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking bars
1/4 cup heavy cream
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup cake flour
To make centers, melt 2 ounces of chocolate (1/2 a baking bar) and cream in double boiler. Whisk gently to blend. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm. Form into 6 balls; refrigerate until needed.
To make cake, heat oven to 400°F. Spray six 4-ounce ramekins or custard cups with cooking spray. Melt 4 ounces of chocolate (1 baking bar) and butter in double boiler; whisk gently to blend. With an electric mixer, whisk eggs, yolks, sugar, and vanilla on high speed about 5 minutes or until thick and light. Fold melted chocolate mixture and flour into egg mixture just until combined. Spoon cake batter into ramekins. Place a chocolate ball in the middle of each ramekin.
Bake about 15 minutes or until cake is firm to the touch. Let it sit out of the oven for about 5 minutes. Run a small, sharp knife around inside of each ramekin, place a plate on top, invert and remove ramekin. Garnish with raspberries and a dollop of whipped cream.
Heaven in a dish/my mouth.
Sometimes you just come across that one song that makes you want to move. THIS is my song of the week. Seriously pick up my running pace to this song.
Hello to whoever is reading this, although I assume no one besides myself is, haha! I figured my first post should be what has been on my mind for the past month. In 9 days I will be getting my first tattoo, and I couldn’t be more excited. My inspiration:
This is my absolutely favourite bible verse and it reminds me very much of how my late grandma lived her life. I’ll be getting it in french on my side (painful, I know!) because my grandma was raised with french as her first language. Here’s to new experiences, can’t wait to see how it turns out!
