I'm horrible. I know. I'm really sorry.
You see, I have midterms this week.
Which meant the workload flowed into last week.
And the week before.

So, basically-hiatus until spring break? You're cool with that? cool. I'm glad. And I'm sorry.

I love you?
Have some chocolate?
Uhm......a hug?
Would that make it better?

Double Rainbow, anyone?

I said I had a recipe, and I do (and it's vegan) and it will come with time my dearies. But I figured I would post this while it is somewhat relevant.

I made a two layered rainbow cake in the shape of a heart.

I'm not going to post a recipe because I followed Ominomicon's post exactly. It was for a class project so I didn't Kittie-ize it.

  • If I made it for myself I would probably use this vegan cake recipe and sub Stevia for sugar.
  • If I were making it for someone else or a party I would probably use a pound cake/butter cake recipe or mix so that it would be cleaner lines of rainbow when cut (since the cake would be less crumbly.)

Make sure you use twice as much (2/3) of each of the first 3 colors in the two pans. This means one pan will begin red, orange, yellow and the other begins purple, blue, green.
Cover & Refrigerate.
Flip out first cake.
Mix Icing.
Ice first cake.
Flip second one on top.
Ice both layers.
Now eat!

Woman Sues Nutella?

There is a woman who is suing the Nutella company for false advertising. She says that in their commercials they claim their product is a health food and that it is misleading. She fed her 4-year-old Nutella until a friend pointed out the nutritional stats.

With the 21 grams of sugar in a 2 Tbsp serving, Nutella is chocolate sauce. I know this, I still eat it on occasion but it really is a dessert food.

Here is my issue with suing over this:
Nutella clearly states that it can be PART of a nutritious breakfast ALONG with fruits and whole grains. Consumers must be informed. Y0u cannot blame a company if you didn't read the label before filling your 4-year-old full of sugar. Nutella is obviously not peanut butter. If a jar of pb hid 21 grams of sugar in 2 Tbsp, there would probably be an issue (read the label anyhow, even natural brands often contain 4 grams, aka 1 tsp of sugar per serving). Nutella is like a candy bar, this is evident from the flavor, ingredients, and nutrition label. Her friend obviously took the time to look at the numbers. It isn't that hard.

Don't blame a company because you're too lazy to check a label.

Sorry for being absent. I came down with something last week. It didn't keep me from school or work but it made my appetite that of a five year old. I only ate plain banana oatmeal and peanut butter sandwiches. And lots of sprite and ginger candies to make my nausea go away.

I am feeling much better. I am still eating mostly sugar free. Because I had no appetite, I choked down a protein bar that had the most sugar of anything I've had in over a month. N0thing happened. I expected a reaction but none came. Nothing bad, at least.

I was waiting to have sugar at a time that I wanted it but I haven't wanted it yet. I don't even crave fruit (but I do make sure to eat two servings a day.)

So the wait continues.
