I really into eating desserts lately, that’s definitely a pregnancy thing because I never felt that urge before. When we go out for dinner I first take a look at the dessert menu before choosing what elso I’m going to order.
But what a disappointment

Nowadays I feel like a super hippie who’s connecting with the earth and I secretly kind of like it. I’ve always been a fan of home made food, to bake my own bread for example or even making hummus or pesto. But lately I thought I had no time to do this, so I bought ready-made hummus and bread which contains much more than just flour, water, salt and yeast.
But since I have created the Pure Food Challenge (which is happening this month) I take time again to make things myself. I’m testing

For the past weeks, since April 8, every Tuesday I’ve been to the Food Truck Lot in Santa Monica, that’s quite often right? Okay, except for the two weeks I was in Amsterdam. But still that’s 6 Tuesday evenings in a row, haha! Last week, I didn’t meant going to the Food Trucks because there was enough food in the fridge, some remains of a cooking session that I did for my blog and barbecue leftovers from Memoral Day, the day before.
But my friends thought it was a good idea to meet at the Food Trucks so we could eat there all together. And heck, why not? At least the weather was perfect!
I love it to spread blankets and tarps on the grass and to order food from three different food trucks. Because yes, that’s what P and I did! I only skipped the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream afterwards because I already stuffed my face in truffle fries, everyday is not a Sunday 😉
And yet this week I give this ‘Food Truck Friday’ a festive touch with this delicious champorado, a Filipino rice pudding with white chocolate instead of dark chocolate. So yummy! Normally I never buy desserts at the food trucks, simply because I still want to lose weight and the fries are often my sin.
Who wants to eat dessert for breakfast? I do!
But today is a day that I’m feeling guilty. And that’s pretty common for me once in a while. It’s not just one thing I feel guilty about, there are a few things. To start I feel guilty towards in my Red Kitchen. I wanted to post the recipe for this delicious and creamy strawberry chia seeds pudding yesterday, but instead of working (a.k.a. blogging) I took a road trip with my sister to San Francisco. We left on Monday, spent 1,5 days in rainy SF and we drove back yesterday over the PCH. So I failed in putting myself to work and take time to write this blog post on time.
We had a really good time in San Francisco, even while
I’ve been wanting to make thumbprint cookies for a long time now, but I promised myself and my friends that I wouldn’t bake cookies for a whole month after the holiday season 😉
But when you say Valentines Day, you say chocolate right? And roses, but no way I’m making roses out of chocolate 😉
So even though my husband doesn’t like chocolate I wanted to make thumbprint cookies filled with chocolate.

Oh. My. God. I think I’ve never been more pleased with a dessert than this one. Maybe it’s because I don’t do a lot of desserts. Maybe it’s because there’s alcohol involved. Maybe it’s because there are strawberries involved. But… maybe it’s because this one took a lot of test rounds before it was blog worthy.
The most important thing I found out:
