Gets Easier Everyday

I guess I should post an update regarding my deactivation of Facebook. It’s been about….. Drumroll……

20140320-105313.jpg

Yes, THAT long! Hurrah!
This to me means I’ve reached another level. If you seem confused, refer back to my post back in Feb. and you’ll know why I’m this excited about it. Just like progress pics, I feel proud of being able to let go of this one addiction of mine, and feel happy that I can overcome such a feat. Trust, if you constantly log onto fb, you’ll know how hard it is to give up. It’s difficult for me to have discipline I’ll tell you now, but I just thought I’d try it for the months I’m in school and since it’s my last year in Uni, I needed to be even more focused. Yes, I can tell you how disconnected you’ll feel without knowing what’s going on with people most of the time, but you can reach out in other ways and it will give you more chances to schedule a coffee date rather than catch up thru fb. Yes, I can tell you how difficult it was trying to stop yourself from habitually reaching for your phone to look at your newsfeed, but you will find that it’s just as easy to find news online and have extra time in between spent doing things with value rather than mindlessly scrolling which I tend to do. Overall, it gets easier once you get through the first week hmmm maybe the second week… eventually it does and then you’ll thank yourself ❤

Ps.

Join me in my excitement as I countdown for our Asia Trip! For sure you'll see more post about travel rather than food all the time hehe

Pps.

If you’ve given up Facebook (even temporarily like me) and can relate to this, I’d like to hear your thoughts about it.
Otherwise…
What’s one thing that you had to give up that was difficult for you? How did you manage that? Any tips you’d like to share?

SnapHappyBunny Cooks: Egg Tarts

20140320-084416.jpg

I know what you’re thinking, she must love her eggs! With back to back posting of a recipe with eggs, you’re either a fan of eggs or you’ve just discovered its usefulness. Actually, I’ve baked this a while ago and has just caught a little bit time to post the ingredients. I don’t make this often just because… Well you’ll see why as you scroll down to the ingredients^^ not exactly the clean or healthy eats because of all the yolk you have to use… (but it has to be said, it’s uber tasty and creamy, you’ll crave for them once in a while!)

Makes 60 little tarts

Ingredients:
•2 package of sweetened tart shells (if you can bake tart shells from scratch, go for it!
•1 dozen egg yolk (that’s right, you only need your yolks so hang on to those whites for a future merengue or macaron project)
•1 can of evaporated milk
•1 can of condensed milk
•1/2 cup of regular 2% or whatever cold milk you have in the fridge
•1/4 sugar

How To:

•In a large bowl, crack eggs and separate the yolks (yolk separating skills will come handy here)

•Pre-heat oven to 375F and keep it at that temp

•while that’s pre-heating, scoop up your mixture into the tart shells, being careful not to overflow the shells

•pop that goodness into the oven, set it and forget it.. Just kidding, you leave it for about 20-25 mins depending on your oven’s heat setting (best way to know is when the edges of your shells have turned golden brown and if you do the tried and true – stick-a-toothpick-see-if-it-comes-out-clean-method)

Ps.

SnapHappyBunny Cooks: Eggs Baked in Avocado

Being such a versatile fruit, another way to eat your Avocados is by combining it with eggs and baking it! Yes, it does not sound very matchy but trust, it’s super delish (and is a good quick breakfast or even a pre workout meal). Recipe is super simple and before I forget, I was inspired by Fitsugar.com for the recipe.

20140320-003954.jpg

Ingredients:

•Avocado
•Eggs
•Chives/green onions
•Pepper or a pinch of cayenne pepper spice
•A little bit of sundried tomato pesto (optional)

•Turn on oven to 400-425F (preheat)
•slice avos in half, removing the pit, scoop out about a third of the flesh at the top to make room for the egg
•crack eggs into the hole you’ve made (you can only fit an egg per half of avocado and it might even overflow if you didn’t scoop deep enough or if you’re using those jumbo eggs)
•put them in a baking dish/pan and bake it in for about 20 min (depending on your oven’s heat) – you’ll know it’s done when the egg whites lose it’s translucent color and have turned white!
•don’t remove them just yet, sprinkle your chives and spices on top (I’ve seen others add cheese on this so you can definitely make it your own). Bake for another 5 min and remove to cool a bit.
•I ate mine with a tiny spoon of pesto and it just gave a fantastic flavour to it, I’ll for sure try other things to garnish this with but keep in mind, if you wanted a healthy alternative, you can definitely stick to the basic and not add so much. One avocado filled me up pretty good, good enough to tide me over till din time ^^
