Tomorrow is my race! That's 1 day people!
So in honour of Halloween, this week I'm focusing on my guilty food pleasures. I figure with all the little goblins and ghosties running around trying to get a sugar rush I would focus on my guilty treat pleasures.
Seriously, is there really someone who doesn't love chocolate? If there is, I have not met them yet! So I have my guilty chocolate pleasure. I prefer to enjoy it either with nuts (almonds or hazelnuts) in it, as mousse, or as dark chocolate 60-75% cocoa. It's rich, creamy and yummy. Lately I've been making a lot of things from scratch with good quality chocolate, like my pumpkin bark and triple chocolate biscotti. A nice way to enjoy some yummy chocolate.
Cake is one of those things that I am a bit more picky about. It used to be that I would just inhale any cake no questions asked. But now I'm becoming much more particular about what I will put into my body. I don't eat packaged cake mix, I don't eat flavours I don't love, I don't eat ones with too much icing (unless my hubby is there to eat the extra icing for me - icing is one of his guilty foods) and I don't eat cake that I don't know who made it. What I enjoy is a fresh, from scratch cake made with quality ingredients that tastes amazing, not store bought, oil cream, overly iced cake.
