The best chocolate buttercream frosting, bold claim huh?

I don’t make that claim lightly, I genuinely believe there is no better chocolate buttercream frosting on this good earth. Of course, I’m always willing to taste test others… you know, to be sure, for science.

If you follow me on instagram , you may have seen that I started a diet this week (or a “lifestyle change” as my BFF would make me say!) and that diet is Weight Watchers. I did it last year and lost over 30lbs, which was pretty awesome (and my BFF has lost 53lb and counting since September ’16!!). I didn’t get to my goal weight though and I kind of fell off track, and I’ve put about 5lb of that weight back on. Which isn’t really a big deal, I’m not all that unhappy with my weight. However, I do want to eat healthier and not put so much processed crap in my body, and losing a little weight would be nice too!

Y’all, I love donuts. Is there anybody who doesn’t love donuts. And look, I love cutting down on some calories with baked donuts as much as the next guy but if I’m having a serious donut craving it’s gotta be deep fried or it just won’t cut it. Since developing a gluten intolerance, real fried donuts have felt pretty much off limits. I mean, how often do you see gluten free donuts in a bakery? And adding the gluten free challenge to the yeast beast? Gah, scary, right?! Well, that’s what I thought.  But I’m happy to admit I was very wrong!

Do you ever feel like you’re constantly playing catch up and never on top of your to-do list? That’s pretty much a constant state for me, but lately it seems to be getting worse! Even with some time off work recently and quite a few four day weeks (yay for bank holidays!), I just feel like I never have enough time to get things done for the blog. On top of all the recipe development, baking, photography and writing, there always seems to be something new to add to the list for the behind-the-scenes stuff – I think I need a personal assistant whose only job is to kick me up the butt to get going with these things! Any takers?! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not really complaining, I love doing the blog, it’s just hard to stay on top of everything! I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels like this, whether it’s in regards to blogging, work life, home life, all of the above! There’s just never enough  hours in the day, is there?

I’m really not a fan of holidays that change date each year, y’know why? Because I am a disorganised mess and I forget it about. So yup, I have left my Easter recipe until the last minute! I know, I know, I can’t really blame the change of date since it’s not exactly a secret. I mean, in theory we can know every Easter until the end of time – for example, did you know that Easter Sunday in the year 2100 will be on March 28th ? – mark your calendars now! Yet, I am using the changing date of Easter each year as an excuse for why I am posting my Easter treat recipe with less than two weeks to go – and I’m sticking to it!
