I don't even know if anyone is reading my blog anymore. If you are then let me first say that I'm sorry for not posting like I used to back in the day. Motherhood of 3 has kicked my tail!
With that said, I think I need to rebrand myself. This blog started as a way to keep in touch with my family back home but now that I have become a mom and have settled into a somewhat Italian lifestyle, I want to show what my life is like now... A not so Italian mom. All of the content from My Sweet Monkey will transfer over to the new blog and as soon as I'm ready.. I'll reveal.
I just whipped up a batch of chocolate kisses and I may have found my new favorite go-to treat.
These are super simple and quick. I found this recipe in a Nutella cookbook that I bought years ago. After the first batch I took a minute or two off the baking time and they came out better but it's all up to you and your oven.
Baci al cioccolato (Chocolate kisses)
120 g sugar
15g cocoa powder
Beat the eggs and sugar until well mixed. Add the flour and cocoa.
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper a drop small spoonful of batter. (they will spread a lot)
Bake at 190c/375f for 8-10 minutes.
Let cool. Take cookie and spread a spoonful of Nutella top with a second cookie. Place on a plate and sprinkle powdered sugar.
Sundays are the days that I try to go easy unless it's a holiday. Since we have 3hr church services, I don't want to spend longer than I have to preparing for food.
Today we had Spinacine and veggies. I love Spinacine because I buy it already prepared. Just heat and serve. It's a breaded chicken patty with spinach. It's delicious and my girls love it. I chose zucchini and carrots since they're quick to cook.
