Strawberry Ricotta Cream

I woke up early this morning. To start my studying session early. Well, as you can tell I am not studying! I just finished eating this delicious yet nutritious bowl of ricotta cream!
So, as I mentioned earlier I started eating like crazy healthily. It lasted for about a week. I mean the part where I didn't eat bread and sugar and all that stuff. 
Because, really. Who am I kidding? I'm a carb girl! I love bread with salted butter! So denying it from myself is not doing any good because portion control is key. If I don't stuff my face with the whole white bread then I'll be fine with that one (maybe two) slice of whole wheat bread. 
Oh and because I started eating really, really less it resulted me starving! Not at the time when I was in that crazy mode of IMGONNALOSEWEIGHT no matter what. No, it came after the first pounds went down and I got a bit calm that oh I can do it. 
So now, this weekend I also drank on that empty stomach... Not good, my friends, not good. Didn't take much to get a horrible hangover the day after. 
And a hangover is anything but good for a diet! Okay, I tried. I really tried restraining myself from my usual hangover foods like pizza, grilled cheese, well basically anything that has a ton of grease and calories! :D I ate salad. SALAD! Huh.. Such a weirdo. But wait, it gets weirder...
I went RUNNING! Crazy, crazy girl. I also did a 4mile run. Okay, more like walking half of the distance but still. I tried! So yeah, the next 2 days I gave in and didn't exercise at all.
I ate tiramisu, grilled cheese, mug cookie, cheesy omlette, white bread....ahhh. 

But yesterday, everything went back to normal. I studied like a mad person (entrance exam tomorrow! yikes!), ate less, ran and slept. Exciting life, huh? But oh well.

My main point is that if you are bored with oatmeal or eggs in the morning, try this ricotta cream! It's sooo healthy and packed with lots of protein! I added a ton of strawberries, sweetened it with a bit of maple syrup and voila! Diet-friendly dessert for breakfast!

Mash the ricotta with the yogurt, syrup and vanilla with a fork. You should be done in 5 minutes and then stir in the strawberry bits. Add a bit more syrup if you like it sweeter.

Brown Butter Walnut Cake with Chocolate-Mocha Ganache

This post is yet again an example of how I procrastinate when it comes to studying or making a presentation. Whichever. This is going to be a lovely tale about a "magnifique" cake.  I got my inspiration to make that brown butter walnut sensation from  Procrastobaker . It is seriously one of the best things I've ever baked. I do not think the photos do justice when I tried to catch how breath-taking the cake is once a bite lands in your mouth... It is crispy on the outside and so juicy in the inside and the chocolate-mocha ganache goes just perfectly well with it. I changed the original recipe a bit, as I worked with walnuts and I added a layer of chocolate cream inside the cake, as well. Also, it is important to add that it is best one day after it was made. While it chilled in the fridge. Oh my... It was such a hit! Definitely going to make it again...and again... :) But I won't keep you on your toes and fill you in with this lovely recipe!

Homemade Nutella

I was an exchange student (ah how many times I've said this sentence...) 5 years ago in the US. I'm not gonna talk about how it was (AMAZING) but then and there I gained sisters! Now I have one living in the States and one living in Germany. And next week we are gonna be reunited! I can't wait, I am so excited! So this week I am going to Germany and was thinking what I should bring. Because basically Germany has everything that Hungary has, if not more. So what to give what to give? I was thinking really hard when a completely random thing came to my mind. I should make some nutella. She loves nutella. Frankly, who doesn't, right? I love it, too although it's been years since I ate any. I can't really explain why because I always think that if I eat just one spoon, I will gain a 100 pounds immediately. But with this thought, I shouldn't be eating any brownies, cookies...etc.  BUT today I tried my homemade Nutella. OH MY GOD. I wouldn't have though
