Part 2 .
I’m no chef, and I hate cooking… but I cook because I have to. While I’m in the kitchen, why not make it enjoyable and fun. These are just some of my dishes I made, it’s way more on my instagram. I try to use cooking as a stress reliever and it works.
not very healthy, but delicious! make with a partner for maximum fun!
½ cup or 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
¾ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
½ cup smooth peanut butter
1 and ½ cups plain flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup chocolate chips, plus extra for decorating
½ cup peanut m&m’s, plus extra for decorating
preheat the oven to 180 C (360 F); grease and line a baking tin with baking or parchment paper
in a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until it is pale and creamy. add the vanilla extract and egg and continue to beat until soft and creamy. stir in the peanut butter
sift in the flour, baking soda and salt. gently fold until the dough starts to come together. throw in the chocolate chips and the m&m’s and fold through. place all the dough into your prepared tin and press down and spread out as evenly as possible
press a few extra m&m’s and chocolate chips onto the top of the cookie cake
place in the oven for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown, remove from the oven and leave to cool completely before cutting into squares. serve up and enjoy!
Another healthy breakfast juice this morning, this time apple and raspberry. I never used to use apples in smoothies/juices mainly because the texture was way too lumpy with my old blender, but with my new one it’s so good (even with the skin still on)!
