Hey guys, ‘suuup? Let’s catch up. As trusty readers know, in January 2015 I started doing these monthly posts in which I review all the yummy things I made in the same month the year before. Because I’ve really enjoyed making these posts so far as they remind me of delicious recipes I may have forgotten about (oh right, I made that too! Let’s make it again tomorrow…) I’ve decided to keep doing it in 2016.
So, let’s see what I made exactly a year ago, shall we? January 2015.
(Btw… OMG IT’S 2016! I have 26-year-old memories! When did that happen?)
Anyway, January 2015. Just four recipes. Well three, as the post about the beaten butter method is really more of a how-to post. I also wrote a little post about keeping healthy – which I haven’t included in this overview – but which may be worth a read if you’re interested in how I can maintain a baking and desserts blog without having to buy larger jeans all the time, or if you’d like to know more about my overall treat-and-dessert philosophy.
Oh, and if you’re interested, you should know that I have eaten a lot (lot, lot, lot) of store bought chocolate chip cookies lately. Baking is not really a thing when caring for a little peanut who happens to be the least fussy baby in the world but who does need to be put down for naps about every hour 😉
But moving on…
The first thing I made in January 2015 was this delicious and easy fruit mousse. I have actually put this in my emergency-dessert recipe file, because it’s so fast and you don’t need weird ingredients to make it. Just frozen fruit (which I always have on hand because I use it in my oatmeal), sugar, and an egg white. You take the fruit (I used frozen raspberries), throw it in a food processor, add the egg white and sugar, and blitz into a light, fluffy mousse. So easy! And it just takes 5 minutes!
