Food For Thought !!

26 Apr

Hey Ho People (here I go, Im a little to high or a little to low) I have decided to do a food for thought on GINGEEERRRRRRRR !! I have wrote 10 facts on GINGER  and A Lovely fiery low calorie drink!! Keep Reading……………

Facts:

1. Ginger used in cooking is the underground stem of the ginger plant (Zingiber)

2. Ginger originated in Asia and is now also grown in India, Southeast Asia, West Africa and the Caribbean.

3. Ginger can be used fresh, either grated or thinly sliced, or the root powdered and dried to make ginger powder.

4. Substitute 6 parts fresh for 1 part ground if needed, although the tastes are not exactly the same.

5. Fresh ginger is often used in pickles and chutneys, and can be pickled itself to make the Japanese delicacy gari.

6. Fresh ginger can also be preserved by crystallising, then used in baking or jam making.

7. When buying ginger make sure the skin is smooth, if it’s wrinkled or cracked it means the ginger is old. It should also be very firm to the touch.

8. Ginger has been found effective for treating nausea caused by seasickness, morning sickness and chemotherapy.

9. Fresh ginger can be kept for about three weeks in the fridge, wrapped in a towel in a plastic bag.

10. It can be frozen for up to three months, either whole or grated.

And to finish it all off a great Ginger Tea recipe that will get you back on track 🙂

Chocolate Pizza!

25 Apr

Hiyyyy Zers 
Nope I am certainly not talking about Pizza ( the one with cheese and tomato), instead I talking about something on an extreme new level…………I’m talking about the new type of Pizza: CHOCOLATE PIZZA!!! Yes you heard ( I mean read) right chocolate pizza. Its basically called chocolate pizza because its round like a pizza and you can add “toppings” on top of the chocolate which ever ones you like, ( I’m telling you beforehand one you get addicted to making these you’ll want to experiment with all types of different toppings). There are loads of variations to this recipe; some people use a real base dough and some people just use chocolate as their base, the recipe I’m using is with just chocolate. Your toppings can be anything you fancy you can use Smarties, Hundreds and Thousands , Marshmallows , Jelly Babies , Rainbow Drops , Honey Coated Chocolate , Chocolate raisins , little chunks of toffee or dark or white chocolate etc. the list is endless. 
 If You carry out a Google search and search Chocolate Pizza’s , you’ll see theres loads of shops which sell these pizza’s , I was nearly very tempted to go and buy some of them but they were very expensive one shop was selling a 7″ Choc Pizza ( 7″ diameter ) for £9.50…………I gotta say that’s kinda expensive so I ventured out to the shops and brought all the ingredients ( You only need Chocolate and some sweets for topping) and made my own. The picture shown below is the first Choc Pizza I made, I used Cadbury’s Mini Easter Eggs , Grated White Chocolate and Grated Milk Chocolate.

Picture

 

For Your mould just use a cake tin, line with parchment paper or cling film, I say again you don’t have to use the toppings I have done pick and choose which ever ones you like. As with the pizza base you can use white chocolate , milk chocolate , dark chocolate or milk chocolate and dark chocolate combined.

CHOCOLATE PIZZA:

  1. In a large microwave-safe bowl melt your dark and milk chocolate, being careful you don’t burn your chocolate.
  2. Line a cake tin with parchment paper or cling film, or you could use a really big round plate and line with cling film.
  3. Pour the melted chocolate on to your cake tin. The decorate the top with your desired toppings.
  4. Then that’s it just wait for the chocolate to set and you’ve made your choc pizza…………………..
Ingredients:

    • dark Chocolate 150 g
    • milk chocolate 150 g
    •  30 g Mixed Chocolate Curls ( buy this from ASDA , 30 g @ £0.84
    • Cadbury’s Mini Easter Eggs. ( a whole packet should be enough)
    • M&Ms ( again a 45 g packet should be enough don’t go eating them)
 

 
You can experiment for hours making choc pizza’s and you can even go the extra mile and put your finished choc pizza’s in little cake boxes and give them as gifts to friends and family. So wht not give em’ a go!!
That is for no DUDES..

Like a BUSY bee :)

7 Apr

Heyya Everyone:)  ,

I had a really hectic week last week, and I have only just recovered LOL. Here’s wat happened.

On Sunday I went to my grandma’s in Lancashire at 1:00pm AND something very drastic happened me my mum and dad were on are way (eating chocolate caramel eggs) until we heard clicking so my dad pulled up on the cafe (The best place to pull up;). ) My Dad checked and his fan belt had ripped (whoops) so we rang AA to come and fix it for us (cuz we already had a fan belt in the car for back up) We waited in the cold fro hours and then we went to sit in the cafe I brought 2 packs of lovehearts, 1 pack of parmavoilets and a pepsi 😉 And my mum and dad got tea and cake:)!
When we came back AA still never came we waited 2 and a half hours after a bit more waiting they came and me and my mum went back to the cafe cuz it got boring (BTW It has already gone dark were we where) After the fan belt got put in my dad got us all a cappuccino to keep us awake.
We where supposed to go back cuz my sister and brother had a baby sitter to look after them so instead of turning back we went to our grandma’s I went and had a tango orange juice and then a cappuccino and felt extremely sick when we got there they made us dinner and i couldn’t eat it at all I had to keep refusing it 😦

When we got back (at 12:00 pm) my stomach settled and i jumped into bed and was soooo tired!
The onky thing that calm’s you down after a day like this is too rest AND make some Double Chocolate and toffee chip Muffins the very next day:)
