Getting some use out of my ramekins
It was one of those days.
I walked into the kitchen with good ideas and good intent and I walked out with a firm kick in my pride.
I hate that.
I'll be honest and say that sometimes I can be rather melodramatic. You know... the cake didn't turn out so it must mean I'm a terrible baker, and oh my gosh now I'm rethinking my career decisions, and my life is over now I might as well just quit while I'm ahead.
Um. Hello! Drama queen, please exit stage left. Thank you.
So today I got right back into the water. Let's just say that my pride is regained so I guess my life can continue. I'm satisfied.
I realized a few things today. Let me share them with you:
1) Raw desserts always turn out for me. I just can't seem to screw them up. I like this;
2) Baked goods are having less and less appeal to me. More often than not I am now turning to raw food for both meals and for snacks (read: I bought a big bag of cacao so lots of chocolate-y things). And probably most importantly;
3) It's ok for things not to go perfectly all the time. I will have bad days. I just have to make the best of them.
I might edit the post later and post the recipe.
That is, I will if I can remember it.
P.S. You can totally see where my finger slipped onto one of the cakes in that last picture. Oops! I'll just eat that one, too...
