I once found the above quote on Pinterest (unfortunately I don’t know the genius the credit belongs to) which made me feel a whole lot better about myself. I don’t like frills and ruffles and tuffles. I don’t do diets and detoxes. I don’t wear heels and almost all of my righthand shoes have a flaw on the toe due to my clumsiness. I don’t dress up; if I need to pull or change my posture while wearing something, I won’t wear it. I don’t mind wearing makeup, but since it takes forever to remove it at night, I rather don’t. I love cooking, as long as I feel like it. And it shouldn’t take up too much time either. I used to love baking, but since my blue-eyed dog-child died a couple of years ago, it has not been the same. He was a sweet tooth.

Basically, if it is quick and easy and comfortable, with a little added sentimental value, I am happy. And it is all about happiness, right? If you are anything like me, here are my quick guidelines so you can have more time to get your other stuff done.

Chocolate cake recipe

I've had this urge to bake a cake for quite some time now. A chocolate one. With chocolate ganache and not icing. I don't dislike icing at all, it's just way too much work to make. Ganache, on the other hand, is quick and easy and takes no special skills when applying...

I have been baking!

If you have not noticed...I have a slight obsession with cupcakes. I do think it is one of the only things where you get to make something pretty, make a mess, clean up and watch other people "wreck" your creations while having fun all the way! I am not sure whether I...
