I wanted something sweet to drink and I had half a small carton of cream leftover to use up. Ordinarily I’d have used vanilla ice cream, but this time I omitted all vanilla ice cream and extract from the recipe.
I had to resist the urge to Snapchat document the entire process. An addiction I will describe in another post haha. I think I would make a decent vlogger… Recipe videos would be so much fun as well. Continue reading “Creamy caramel coffee milkshakes.”
I made this smoothie purely to just use up the natural yoghurt we had in the fridge, and also at the time mangoes were in season. This meant the time was ripe (hehe) for me to experiment with recipes in which mangoes where the star. So I did! Continue reading “Strawberry mango smoothies.”
Erm, totally skipping over the fact that it’s been a couple of months since I updated this blog: I first made these one evening when my parents went to a dinner party that my youngest brother and I opted not to attend. My mum had promised us take-out but as the party drew nearer the time to go and buy our dinner had gotten away from her and my dad. The spices I used for these were searched up on taste.com. Some of the women who reviewed said their fussy children loved the taste – I was sold. These pictures are not from that night, I did not document the final product the first night I tried the recipe. I made the wedges pictured here for my uncle and myself to snack on last year. (I’m a lazy blogger…)

This is the first smoothie I ever made. The frozen blueberries had been sitting in the freezer for a long time and I was looking for quick breakfast fixes at the start of last semester. After I made this I offered some to my uncle and aunt. (This was about a week after they’d arrived in Australia.) My uncle said to give him a small serve, thinking he wouldn’t like the taste. He was wrong. Soon there was none left and my promise to make more is taking a lot longer than I’d anticipated to fulfill. To me it tasted quite yoghurty, but thinner in texture.

Some mornings last year I would watch Frasier or Charmed on channel 11 if I didn’t have a lecture to go to. Before that, if I was up early enough, Alive and Cooking would be on. This fried rice recipe is adapted from one I saw James Reeson prepare. He kept talking about how simple and easy it was to make. I think it’s only simple and easy when you have all the ingredients and also your kitchen is not in a state of disarray.

I fell into a bit of a smoothie hiatus after my first semester this year. My family had been taking their sweet time in finishing off the oranges we’d been having as part of iftar every night of Ramadan, and so I looked into some recipes to use them up. It was a pleasant tasting, like a creamy orange candy. Continue reading “Orange vanilla smoothie.”
