Hello food lovers! 😉 I LOVE food – which honestly makes it very hard for me to go on a diet. Being a vegetarian (this year is my 10 year anniversary) – it’s ironically very easy to become overweight contrary to what some may think. Many vegetarians do NOT like vegetables. This statement throws many off track – but its true. My vegetarian friends (okay -and so do I) love cheese, potatoes, bread etc – essentially food that turns into FAT. So to combat all that – I regularly detox and try to go to the gym thrice a week. 🙂 Luckily though – I love fruit and veggies – which makes me the ultimate foodie.
My love for food makes me enjoy cooking. I’m not talking about the before and after which consists of: cutting, cleaning and washing up! I enjoy the actual cooking – the mixing of flavors which has the potential to create something absolutely delicious! I usually view different recipe sites while watching TV with my husband at night on Paprika (my previous Technology Tuesday post was on this app). I recently came across this recipe and thought I must give it a go.
That’s the snapshot of my Paprika Recipe. As stated in my notes, I made half the recipe – that’s because of the amount of sugar and calories these little bites of heaven had! Although, I must admit – they were really yummy. It’s that bit of brownie that everyone fights for – the chewy bite. Every cookie was that exact bite.
Things to note if you are vegetarian: you can substitute ONE EGG = 1/4 cup carnation milk + 1 tsp custard powder. It always works for me. I did this for these cookies too – and it would be impossible to tell that they are eggless. Also I didn’t have margarine at home – so I substituted it for unsalted butter and it worked fine 🙂 Happy Baking!
Bon Appetite! That’s my end product – even the batter was divine. And yes the next day I went to the gym. Guilty as charged.
