In my world, treats are very important and should be part of the daily life. A treat can be a nice scrub in the shower that makes your skin soft and leaves a lovely scent. It can be a good book, or a massage. It can also be the food you eat, and I believe we should enjoy everything we put into our mouths – and still treat our bodies with respect. If you don’t want to feel like crap, basically don’t put crap into your mouth! Instead, pick the nourishing stuff that are good for your body, and combine them to nice creations. Like this spontaneous blueberry pie I made the other day. Filled with just good ingredients – a treat for your body and your taste buds!
OK I realize we can’t have a big fancy cake everyday. How would that look! (Pretty great if you ask me…:-)) But who says we can’t cheat – and make fancy muffins? Or even fancier cupcakes? There was a birthday celebration in my daughters class the other day and she asked me if she could bring her own treat to eat when the rest of the kids munch on the sugar bomb – gluten containing – cake that the birthday kid promised to bring…. So yes of curse – I made these for her – and she was delighted!
And might I add – tastier! I’ve recently discovered that homemade coconut milk is better in so many ways, and I cannot see myself ever buying the canned version again. Just follow these few simple steps and you’ll know why!
I just realized that two of my favorite readers have the same birthday – which is today! So – happy birthday Anna and Miia! And what could be a better post on a day like this than a cake? And not just any cake – but the one and only, the most famous German cake… The black forest cake! – aka “Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte”. So girls – this one is for you!
