I’m trying to do this thing for the next 40 days and 40 nights where I reserve dessert to a once a day. Laugh if you want, but all too often I find myself mindlessly tearing into a bag of peanut M&M’s or popping Baked by Melissa’s like their grapes. Eliminating sucrose completely is a bit lofty for the time being so I’ve decided to make refined sugar a once a day thing. Baby steps, friends.
Anyhow, happening upon the above recipes hasn’t helped matters much.
Soup from GOOP. Surprisingly filling and super adaptable. I made with Broccoli and arugula but you could sub any green veg.
Sugar-free cinnamon waffles from Shape. Rull good. Applesauce and greek yogurt/oil instead of sugar and butter (although I added some Kerrygold at the end). You could probably make them g-free and with a flax egg if you’re into that sort of thing. Easy like Sunday morning which, coincidentally, is when I made them.
This past Sunday as I tucked into a corner booth and stared straight down at a jar full of molten cake cake I knew in an instant that I would love everything Autumn Martin does and stands for. A little internet diving has since confirmed this suspicion. (Previously Head Chocolatier at Theo! Launched a Kickstarter to help build her shop and have it certified as organic! Wears really great earrings!)
Once we polished off that cake I could’ve easily tucked away a s’mores bar, a butter beer, and one of those cookies but the ounce of better judgement I carry with me argued otherwise. Luckily I found some replicable Hot Cakery over on Orangette.
