My lOve 4 ShoeS

Hello again !! I'm feeling creative these days, maybe it's the vacations, maybe it's the heat that doesn't let me sleep, I don't know... The point is, I made a new wallpaper for my PC. 

It shows exactly how I feel about shoes and their effect on me ...

And I guess for so many women !!! I have this  theory that if U ask a woman what would be the first thing she wouLd get if she won the lottery or something like that, the most repeated thing would be a pair of Louboutin's.

Hope U Like it :)

Saw the phrase on Pinterest when I was browsing, got the photo on GoogLe, a LittLe Picasa on it and  voiLà !! 


Peach Muffins !

Hello there !! Again I bring U some muffins, so gOOd that if it wasn’t for this pain in my wrist (because of the muffin batter) I wouldn’t believe they were mine. The recipe’s quiet easy so here goes.

No camera yet so the pictures are kind of crappy:

Peach Muffins

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped peaches
3 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and mix.
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to butter mixture. Add vanilla. Gently stir in the chopped peaches. You can also add chocolat powder and make plain chocolat muffins.
Spoon batter into muffin pans.
Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over muffins (I didn’t use the cinnamon).
Bake at 400º for 20-25 minutes.
Makes one dozen muffins. And great cupcake batter !!

                           Enjoy the muffins, puff puff and pass ;)

xOxO !!

Vania's Chocolate Cake

Hello there !!! After a long period of absence due to my lack of camera ( I kinda broke the screen uppss ) I decide to return anyway, no photos just the recipe !! After all it’s such an easy cake :) Promise !

I have 2 best friends ... My cousin Telma and Vania, a girl I met when I was a teen and to make a long story short (maybe one day i’ll get a chance to tell it) a dumb ass took her life and she’s shinning up in the sky with Patricia and all the other stars ...

She used to make a cake that everyone loved ... The recipe’s so easy U can do it in no time, no photo tutorial required but one day I’ll update the post.

So here it goes :

My bFF’s “Chocolate cake”

Cake batter :
1 cup powder chocolate
1 ½ cup white sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
½ cup vegetable oil
5 eggs (separate the yolk from the egg whites carefully)
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 cup of boiling water

Chocolate sauce :
150 gr sweetened condensed milk
60 gr dark cooking chocolate
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients with a wooden spoon except for the egg whites.

Beat the egg whites firmly then gently poor and incorporate them into the cake batter.

Heat the oven up to 180°.

In a round baking tin. I recommend something like this :

Butter up and sprinkle with some flour.

Poor in the cake batter and into the oven for about 50 minutes.

You can get 2 amazing cakes out of these quantities J. That’s the kind of person she was, a cake for the family, one for the friends. I’m so lucky because I got to eat from both of them ...

Now for the chocolate sauce, so gOOOOOOOd it should be forbidden !!!

In really low heat, melt the butter and then add the chocolate thorn into bits. Don’t stop stirring.When th chocolate’s completely melted add the sweetened condensed milk and stir for another 5 minutes. It should be shiny and silky.

Drop it over the cake, sprinkle with icing sugar and anything you have in the house it enjoy !!

I sometimes fill the hole with gummy bears (Wait untill it's cold)...

Here’s the photo !!!

It’s so yummi I cant keep my hands off it and my face looks like a puberty war zone !! Pimples everywhere !! Hahahaha!!

This one was for my princess 3 year old party <3

Time flies ! Where did this little thing go ?

She turned into this little woman, so sweet, always with a smile

Well down the memory lane we went and now here we are back into the present, never knowing what the future is gonna bring ...

To U my dear friend Vania Miriam Moniz Cam Fok :

Miss U every day my friend
Ur one the angels I miss the mOSt
Take care of my baby girl Sister
