Blueberry & Avo muffins

I will admit. When I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I was also thinking… avo?! But when you start reading the reason behind it, it makes complete sense. It’s actually a much healthier option than oil or butter.

Ali Ebright is a food blogger and a genius! You can grab this recipe from her site Gimme Some Oven. I’ll definitely be following this site and her Pinterest boards going forward. Given that she obviously does this on a professional basis, I apologize in advance for my picture which does not do justice to the scrumptious deliciousness of the muffins – they are to die for!

Sampioen, Okkerneut en Tiemie Kaaskoek

Gits, dit het omtrent dink gevat om net met die titel vorendag te kom. Hoekom? Wel, ek plagiaat (klink soveel mooier as steel!) hierdie resep uit een van my skoonsus se kookboeke. Ons het dit oor die naweek gemaak as ’n voorgereg saam met sout beskuitjies en dit was beslis ’n wenner! Plus ek het dit boonop op my Facebook en Instagram profiel gepost en nou wil ’n hele paar mense die resep hê! Om die titel te vertaal het my klaar laat kopkrap, so verskoon as die res soos ’n tipiese direkte vertaling klink!

Ek weet my Afrikaanse maatjies gaan my prys vir my intelligensie, want hoe sal die uitgewers van ’n Amerikaanse tydskrif my nou ooit gevang kry…. mwuhahahahaa! Vir die arme siele wat dit nie verstaan nie, is al wat ek kan sê: Your loss!

The Museum of… ahem #coughs

Yep, this post is definitely x-rated! Since I was on a museum streak while in NY, I couldn’t resist visiting the Museum of Sex. Though this might not be everyone’s cup of tea, I found it entertaining and even informative. It’s laid out in a very interesting way and naturally leads you from one exhibition into the next via staircases.

So, are you brave enough? Then do proceed. Although here I would like to send a short shout-out to my mommy: Doeksag, gaan kyk gou of die stoof af is!

I came, I saw, I was in awe

As you can tell from my post on NY, I spent quite some time in museums. I confess! I love pretty pictures and admire the masters behind them. I could’ve gone into more detail about every painting, but for those of you who are not art lovers it would just be a big yawn. For those who do love art, I’m sure you’ll understand what I mean when I say I was in awe. Some of these I have only seen in print and movies – it was amazing actually being there in front of them. In person. I consider myself blessed.
