5 “Guilty Pleasure” Foods

 

The 5 Things tag keeps surfacing on WordPress. I am not sure who first thought of it but I have always found it fun to do. I thought “Why not make it a weekly feature?”

The 5 Things tag keeps surfacing on WordPress. I am not sure who first thought of it but I have always found it fun to do. I thought “Why not make it a weekly feature?”

Today’s topic is 5 Guilty Pleasure foods. These may be goodies that your doctor has forbidden for medical reasons. You may be denying yourself  some foods in an attempt to lose weight. These are the foods that you sneak out of the fridge when no one’s looking. Here’s a list of my fave five:

Cake

cake sifting cocoa

I love cake of any kind, except for the currently fashionable Lotus Milk cake . My favourites are the drier kinds like carrot cake, rich plum cake and banana bread.

 

Cookies

mug cookies violet flowers

You could say that cookies are in the same category as cake, but they occupy their own special place in my heart. Give me endless cups of tea or coffee and assorted cookies all day and I won’t ask for lunch or dinner.

 

Cream

Cream takes everything to the next level, be it cake, cookies, ice cream or any dessert. What would cream puffs or chocolate eclairs be without their filling of whipped cream . Cream makes things like white sauce or cooked spinach taste yummier.

 

Chocolate

Chocolate, the darker the better is my favourite indulgence. However, I can’t say no to those gift boxes of assorted chocolates, each with its own special “secret”; the ones with cocoa nibs or coffee centres are the ones I like best.

 

Crisps

crisps

Potato crisps, salty and light are great while relaxing with a good book or movie. They are good companions on road trips, picnics and visits to the cinema.

 

 

These are only five of my favourite indulgences, I have many more. How about you ? I would love to know yours’.

  2. I love cakes, I bake “healthy” cakes for my friends because one of them is diabetic, I’ve found out that it is possible to make delicious cakes that are lighter and healthier than usual cakes
