Hello everyone and Happy Saturday 🙂

So, here is a little anecdote for you. I tried to bake some wonderful delicacy at my friend’s place on a Saturday.

She has such a nice kitchen, all big, and shiny and furnished, while the two heater plates in my tiny apartment does not encourage any kind of cooking.

You know, all those little cool and quick DIY cooking videos you see on YouTube or Instagram, like Tasty ? Well, I felt like trying my hand in replicating one.

I adore watching Rosanna Pansino’s “Nerdy Nummies” Channel, she is one of the few innovative chef out there who know how to appeal to my taste buds as well as my inner geek. I mean, a Captain America Pizza? a Hulk pudding cup, the Sansa’s lemon cakes from Games Of Thrones, the Harry Potter’s pumpkin pasties… How much do I love that girl?

So, I told myself I could do it and I decide to bake a dessert (because my mind clearly went for the easier meal to cook) featuring, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate and… chocolate.

What can I say? Chocolate makes me happy. I cannot live without it and it clearly loves me too, it always melt for me.

Y’all, cooking a cake is hard. I have that tendency to dance whenever I’m doing something standing up, and I put on some music while I was steering my mixture, so when Shakira started to sing that she could see “my body mooooooving”, I was like “Ya Betcha!” and of course I added a little… OK, a big twist of my hip with that expletive and my mixture went splashing everywhere.

On the kitchen plane, on my clothes, on my hair, on the floor, on the wall.

It sucked.

I also burned my hand while trying to melt butter. Whatsoever.

But that painful and somewhat humiliating afternoon was not in vain. First of all, I had a lot of fun creating something with my own hands, it felt good to try and to learn. I had a lot of fun. Second of all, my friend literally cried with laughter when I offered her my “Death by Chocolate” cake. So, I made someone happy, I guess.

Do you like to cook? Are you more of a “dessert” or “piece de resistance” kind of cook?

Let me know! And enjoy this Shatzi!

Song of the day

Shakira “Hips Don’t Lie”
(feat. Wyclef Jean)

Ladies up in here tonight
No fighting, no fighting
We got the refugees up in here
No fighting, no fighting

Shakira, Shakira

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man wants to speak Spanish
Como se llama (si), bonita (si), mi casa (si, Shakira Shakira), su casa
Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby when you talk like that
You make a woman go mad
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

And I’m on tonight
You know my hips don’t lie
And I’m starting to feel it’s right
All the attraction, the tension
Don’t you see baby, this is perfection

Hey Girl, I can see your body moving
And it’s driving me crazy
And I didn’t have the slightest idea
Until I saw you dancing

And when you walk up on the dance floor
Nobody cannot ignore the way you move your body, girl
And everything so unexpected – the way you right and left it
So you can keep on shaking it

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Como se llama (si), bonita (si), mi casa (si, Shakira Shakira), su casa
Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby when you talk like that
You make a woman go mad
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

And I’m on tonight
You know my hips don’t lie
And I am starting to feel you boy
Come on lets go, real slow
Don’t you see baby asi es perfecto

Oh I know I am on tonight my hips don’t lie
And I am starting to feel it’s right
All the attraction, the tension
Don’t you see baby, this is perfection
Shakira, Shakira

Oh boy, I can see your body moving
Half animal, half man
I don’t, don’t really know what I’m doing
But you seem to have a plan
My will and self restraint
Have come to fail now, fail now
See, I am doing what I can, but I can’t so you know
That’s a bit too hard to explain

Baila en la calle de noche
Baila en la calle de día

Baila en la calle de noche
Baila en la calle de día

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Como se llama (si), bonita (si), mi casa (si, Shakira Shakira), su casa
Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby when you talk like that
You know you got me hypnotized
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

Senorita, feel the conga, let me see you move like you come from Colombia

Mira en Barranquilla se baila así, say it!
Mira en Barranquilla se baila así

Yeah
She’s so sexy every man’s fantasy a refugee like me back with the Fugees from a 3rd world country
I go back like when ‘pac carried crates for Humpty Humpty
I need a whole club dizzy
Why the CIA wanna watch us?
Colombians and Haitians
I ain’t guilty, it’s a musical transaction
No more do we snatch ropes
Refugees run the seas ’cause we own our own boats

I’m on tonight, my hips don’t lie
And I’m starting to feel you boy
Come on let’s go, real slow
Baby, like this is perfecto

Oh, you know I am on tonight and my hips don’t lie
And I am starting to feel it’s right
The attraction, the tension
Baby, like this is perfection

No fighting
No fighting

    1. 😂😂😂 I have no shame! I figured I’d share to make someone else laugh even if it’s at my expenses! 😊 I will try again to cook that cake, if only to honor the beauty that is chocolate… thank you for your comment! Have a lovely day!
