Happy Valentines Day!

If you are here it means that you haven’t prepared dessert yet or because you want to make something special but forgot or because its pass Valentines Day and you just want a really quick easy dessert recipe.

1. Breathe, you’re not going to die.

2. Make sure whoever you’re making this for doesn’t read my blog. That’s a fight waiting to happen.

Ok, so i started challenging myself by trying to make cool recipes out of ingredients i find in a convenient store (711 in this case), just so i can show people that smart, tasty food is really accessible to anyone. I also wanted to put a time cap on this one, so the prep time is brought down to 5mins. No kidding.

Pineapple Maple Pot de Creme

Boil 2/3 cup of cream mix (1/3 heavy cream, 1/3 whole milk) in a sauce pan.

In a blender, blend 1 tbsp of maple syrup, 1/2 tsp of vanilla essence, 3 slices of pineapple, 1 large egg. Blend until liquid.

On low, blend in the hot milk mixture.

Pour into 1 mason jar and leave in the fridge at least 3-4 hours (more if you can).

If you have a blast freezer, this will go by even quicker.

If you are doing this at 7pm, you will have the perfect surprise midnight snack.

Take out from the fridge. Dust with cinnamon powder. Done. Voila. Enjoy.

See, I wasn’t kidding.

Music is Stars – this Charming Man (the Smiths cover), and guess what? Stars is playing live on Feb 16 at Metrowalk. I’m so excited, see you guys there!

      Can we substitute with other fruits? Allergic to pineapples, unfortunately :(

        I don’t see why not. Be playful with it and find a flavor you will like.

      This. Looks. Delicious. I can’t wait to try it! However, eeek, what can I use to substitute the egg for that vegan twist? (if you may). Thanks!

      You are awesome! You did everything in half a second. Really impressive. On the other hand, I can’t wait to get a nice pineapple pot de creme to sit on my freezer for awhile. And that accent, too! ;o)

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
