Chef Skinny Bitch?

While trawling through my new favourite (for the moment) website looking for ebooks that might at a stretch be used to pad my research proposal, I came upon this extremely err… interesting book title –
Skinny Bitch in the Kitch: Kick-Ass Recipes for Hungry Girls Who Want to Stop Cooking Crap (and Start Looking Hot!)
I don’t know what the recipes in it are like, but that title is certainly a mouthful! The book description was kinda scary though… Sure I’m more than a little grumpy when I wake up, but I usually stop bitching long before breakfast. If anyone does read this one, let me know….
Skinny Bitches Can Bake Their Cake – And Eat it Too!
Quit your bitching–they’ve heard you already! You read Skinny Bitch and it totally rocked your world. Now you want to know, “What can I cook that’s good for me, but doesn’t taste like crap?” Well, lucky for you, the Bitches are on the case. Self-proclaimed pigs, Rory and Kim understand all too well: Life without lasagna isn’t a life worth living; chocolate cake is vital to our survival; and no one can live without mac `n cheese–no one. So can you keep to your SB standards and eat like a whale? Shit yeah, bitches. To prove it, Rory and Kim came up with some kick-ass recipes for every craving there is:
-Bitchin’ Breakfasts
-PMS (Pissy Mood Snacks)
-Sassy Soups and Stews
-Grown-up Appetizers
-Comfort Cookin’
-Hearty Ass Sandwiches
-Happy Endings (Desserts)
And a ton more! They are all so good (and easy to make) you’re gonna freak out. Seriously. What are you waiting for? Get your skinny ass in the kitchen!

Happier and less bitchy topic. Made my own chocolate muesli today. It was supposed to be chocolate chip actually, but my sauce was too hot and melted all my chips. Still tastes great though.
This was followed by chocolate bonbons. They were just screaming for some rum mixed in them, but sadly, with the parentals here that wasn’ possible. 
And then I finished my day with a Vanilla Sponge Cake. Discovered that the kitchen scale was broken as I was measuring out the ingredients, so I’m afraid the proportions are something of an experiment. (Sorry birthday boy!) Anyway, that reminded me of my Home Science Class back in school. There was this really long, really boring class on all the different ways you can mess up your cake. Extremely motivating. (Scared one of my friends off baking for 7 years, after which she finally worked up the courage to bake a cake for her son’s 1st birthday) Too much heat, too little heat, too much sugar, too much baking powder, too thick, too runny, too deep a cake pan, too low a rack in the oven…. It went on and on and on. For 2 hours. And she never did teach us how to bake a cake, which she was supposed to be doing.

  1. Ohmigod, I totally have to get that book! Sounds just for me.And honey! I really shud move back…chocolate muesli? umm…isnt muesli supposed to be CRUNCHY? and um…choc bonbons? What are they really? I WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNT. EVERYTHING. I. WANT.

  2. the muesli WAS crunchy… its actually pretty good, although i don't know how "authentic" it is. it makes a good breakfast, and it gets me a healthy supply of oats in a no fuss, sugar free way (i mixed honey into it, so i just have to add cold milk)bonbons are just small sweets, often coated in chocolate. the batch i made yesterday was a birthday present for Manu. Come back here girl! Miss you lots, especially whenever there's any fun to be had… Like I've been planning a small trip to someplace nearby, but without you here I don't know how to do it!

  3. I want to try making these dishes you describe here.. so I am going to sit and read your old posts and seriously start following your blog. And…. If, one day, I feel I am confident enough to make something, I am gonna make it and send a photo to you…Bless me…….
