My mother’s cookbooks up on their shelf. The Betty Crocker Cookbook is from 1969. I’ve never used it, but I love the retro pictures and recipies.

Ace’s uncle cooked us a huge meal. It was an honour to be able to eat with his entire family, whom we had not met before this trip.

Today is my neighbor’s wedding anniversary. I decided to bake them a giant low carb. chocolate cookie. No, they are not diabetic. Baking a low carb version also lets me enjoy a chocolate cookie without having to worry about excess carbs. I decided to experiment with a new recipe that I’ve been thinking of trying for sometime. I wrote down all the ingredients, the proportions I planned to use, and then got out the measuring cups. This photograph articulates my typical baking adventures, wherein I calculate the carbs and measure all the ingredients carefully. Sometimes, I have to weigh the ingredients before I use them, but that’s a topic for another post. Watch my Flickr photo stream for the finished product and the recipe.

Update 1: Recipe at

There is no cure for diabetes, yet.

Recipe: Blueberry yogourt cake
Image by Smaku
An extremely simple cake to bake yet so versatile in that you can mix a myriad of your favourite ingredients to make it your own special cake.

Use this yogourt cake as a base and substitute the blueberries for anything else you want to put in there. This recipe taken from Chocolate & Zucchini’s blog, with thanks to Renee’s Kitchen for pointing it out to me.

Blueberry Yogourt Cake


2 eggs
1 cup (250ml) of whole milk yogourt
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups flour
1 cup blueberries
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon rum
1/2 cup oil


1) In a bowl, mix together the eggs, yogourt, sugar, vanilla extract, oil, and rum. (1)
2) In another bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder (2)
3) Blend the flour mixture in to the yogourt mixture (3).
4) Add blueberries and thoroughly mix (4).
5) Pour batter in 9.5" cake pan (5). Bake in oven for about 30-35 minutes at 350F. Cake should be golden brown on top (6) and cake tester/toothpick should come out relatively clean.
6) Let stand for 10 minutes and then cool on rack.

There are a variety of mixtures to this recipe, including adding honey in the mixture, almonds slices on top, or just simply sift some sugar powder on top after it has cooled down. Feel free to get creative and do as you please.

The finished product should look a little like this.
