there's a little bling on the chest if you can see it ;)
It's Labour Day weekend here so I'm also planning on working on some desserts this weekend. We have a get-together planned for next weekend and I'd like to experiment on some healthy desserts. I plan on attempting pavlova, so wish me luck!
My goal is to use only natural sugars, honey, maple syrup, etc. in a few things and see if they're something other people will eat as well. I might have some more traditional, possible store-bought stuff and my creations, just to be sure. I know that as my tastes have changed with decreasing my sugar intake, I find I'm a little overly sensitive to sugar and other people need a little more.
I'd never heard of Pavlova before watching the Bake off show
and I've recently been watching the Comic Relief editions, they're awesome! and the recipes seem much more my speed. :) I know the above photo is the old crew and I've watched some of the new one and it's okay I suppose; although I miss Mary Berry and Sue and Mel.
If you have any favourite recipes for desserts, especially if they can be easily substituted for natural sugars, please let me know! So far I've attempted some coconut flour cupcakes that turned out well and you can make frosting with avocado, maple syrup and cocoa that ends up very tasty. I'm going to attempt a cashew "cheese"cake again. It turned out well one time I made it, the same texture as an actual cheesecake and much healthier, so we'll see how that goes too.
I hope everyone has a good weekend, whether it's a holiday one or not. Happy Stitching!
