#RECIPEFRIDAY: Tasty Eats, Yummy Treats!

Hey everyone and...

Welcome to another edition of #RECIPEFRIDAY!

I will not be showing you how to make 'Angry Bird' cupcakes today ;)


Are you as excited about the long weekend as I am?! (Yep, another long weekend for me to savour!)

Mind you...
I won't be in the hot sand at Tiki Beach!

If anything...

I'm glad I'm feeling about 80% better after spending more than half the week ridding myself of this awFUl cold and 'landsickness'! (Feeling like you are swaying can be quite nauseating and, when you add coughing, wheezing, a runny nose and fatigue into the mix, now that's a winning combo lol)

I know...

That being said...

I'm on the road to recovery...

Perhaps literally too after yesterday's fast and steady 35k bike ride!


All is good! (I'm planning on relaxing and enjoying all the good things this coming weekend has to offer! It might include the movies and a trip to Menchie's too! I still have a groupon I need to use up!)

Has it already been over 6 months since I went last?!

Moving on...

Now today...

I will be sharing some recipes I've been inspired by as of late!

Sarah at Ingredients of a Fit Chick

As I'm getting back into the groove of things on the homefront (since getting back from my holidays!)...

I haven't had much time to experiment in the kitchen so...

I've been sticking to the basics in my cooking! (I'll admit, I do very much enjoy my basic eats as they are clean, simple and do my body and taste buds lots of good!)

I couldn't wait to have my Oatmeal Protein Bites!
Salad à la FU!

But don't you worry...

I'll be putting together my creative juices before you know it and will have lots to share! (Mmmm, yes!)

I had a taste of two amazing cakes (carrot cake and pumpkin layer cake) before leaving for our holidays.
Our good friend Chris made them for me post my IDFA competition.
They were incredible I didn't want to share haha
I shared lots ;)
