Sitting at tealounge with my fiances ipad on my lap… Taking a small break before reading for my exam.. I’ve been so against ipad and now I feel that I want one for myself!:S the apple bug has bit me and im scared!!! When I first heard about the ipad I thought “omg what a waste of material and another thing to have in your purse.. Why isnt it enough with your laptop?” now I see that it is easier to surf on.. Just checking out blogs, your e-mails and your facebook is so much easier. you dont have your laptop computer wire in the way, you have to look for a powerplug for the charger, and its smaller.. So yeah, i might become one of those million apple zombies ;p

My fiance gave me a wallet from Hong Kong shaped as one of my favorite animation character DOMO..

He is a silly monster..

So yeah, my fiance told me that I need to wear accesosires.. After he told me that, I got hoocked on buying big necklaces, earrings and a specially bracelets! I love wearing bracelets and I can’t go out of the apartment without a bracelet on my wrist that matches my vintage bags or my earrings.. I can’t believe I hated wearing accesosires, it pulls the outfit together and gives you more identity! 😉

Oh my… This was my breakfast a couple of days ago.. I LOVE smoothies!

When I make smoothies I allways use frozen berries, banana, honey, milk and fiber yogurt.

The smoothie gets a nice thick consistency, but not to thick that I cant drink it through a straw. The crackers are from The Philippines and they are called Skyflakes 😉

I want a smoothie now…

I just stumbled over a cookingbook at thta was called “whoopie pie”. I have never heard of it so I started googleing.. They are a baked good made of two round mound-shaped pieces of chocolate cake, sometimes pumpkin cake, with a sweet, creamy frosting sandwiched between them. I thought “YUM!” right away! They look like hamburgers, but in a dessert version! Here are some pictures of those good looking delights.

I found a recipe that I will try this weekend. I just have to give the pies to other people so I dont eat them all 😛


1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk
Whoopie Pie Filling (see recipe below)

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheets.
2) In a large bowl, cream together shortening, sugar, and egg. In another bowl, combine cocoa, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
3) In a small bowl, stir the vanilla extract into the milk. Add the dry ingredients to the shortening mixture, alternating with the milk mixture; beating until smooth.
4) Drop batter by the 1/4 cup (to make 18 cakes) onto prepared baking sheets. With the back of a spoon spread batter into 4-inch circles, leaving approximately 2 inches between each cake. Bake 15 minutes or until they are firm to the touch. Remove from oven and let cool completely on a wire rack.
5) Make Whoopie Pie Filling. When the cakes are completely cool, spread the flat side (bottom) of one chocolate cake with a generous amount of filling. Top with another cake, pressing down gently to distribute the filling evenly. Repeat with all cookies to make 9 pies. Wrap whoopie pies individually in plastic wrap, or place them in a single layer on a platter (do not stack them, as they tend to stick).

To freeze, wrap each whoopie pie in plastic wrap. Loosely pack them in a plastic freezer container and cover. To serve, defrost the wrapped whoopie pies in the refrigerator.

Makes 9 large whoopie pies.

Whoopie Pie Filling:
1 cup solid vegetable shortening*
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups Marshmallow Fluff**
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

*Butter may be substituted for all or part of the vegetable shortening, although traditional Whoopie Pies are made with vegetable shortening only
** Marshmallow Creme may be substituted.

Today was a great day! Went to the beach with a friend, came home, smoked my waterpipe with watermelon taste and made american pancakes from White King!
