..because you are my inspiration to continue blogging ..to exploring new ingredients/recipe ideas, to fun fitness tips, to building friendships, to learning important & unimportant life lessons and much more.
…lately I have been feeling guilty of pinning recipes & bookmarking pages (read: hundreds) that I find exciting and intriguing. But in reality they are rarely revisited and often forgotten. But since last week or so I have been taking a mental note of few recipes I came across recently and actually got down to making it instead of saving it for later. So here is to my Frinspiration from this week.
Horchata: this rice-based sweet Mexican drink is laced with dates which is a healthier substitution to traditional sweetened condensed milk. Recipe inspired from here & here.
- soak dates in warm water for half an hour if they are dry and hard to pulse. Or, microwave them in little bit of water for couple minutes to soften it quicker.
- any rice works fine. I used Basmati rice.
- I spiked mine with couple tablespoon of Baileys but it tastes refreshingly delicious by itself.
Peanut Butter Avocado Cookies comes from here. In the past, I have failed miserably with chocolate-avocado mousse but this cookie has changed my outlook on dessert & avocados completely. I know this is a keeper when the boyfriend ate two cookies with no question or any suspicious look. Did I mention his co-workers liked it too.. That pretty much says it all about this cookie (make it ASAP).
-I substituted agave nectar for 100% pure maple syrup & added heaping tablespoon of chia seeds.
- The original recipe yields: 15-18 cookies but I only got about 8. My version was definitely bigger and slightly thicker however, the end result was not dense at all. I had to increase the baking time for few more minutes – keep an eye to make sure they do not burn or come out under done.
-How often do you make recipes/DIY projects and such you come across on the blog?
