Breakups can be horrible, and even though your friends are always there for you, sometimes you need more than a shoulder to cry on to get over the pain.
Sometimes you need food — you know to eat your feelings.
To get over being dumped, put on an apron and make yourselves these absolutely delicious foods. You must be wondering why should you cook when you could order instead?
Because while cooking you’ll be concentrating on not burning your food, so momentarily you won’t be thinking about the one who broke your heart, and after that you get to eat yummy food.
— Ice-cream cake
This one is easy peasy lemon squeezy. Buy the gooiest chocolate cake your grocery store has to offer and a tub of vanilla ice-cream. Spread the ice-cream all over the cake, and put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Top it up with warm chocolate sauce or sprinkles or both.
— Ice-cream float
This one is my personal favourite, pour your go-to drink (be it coke or beer) in a glass and add a scoop of vanilla ice-cream to it. I swear your pain will keep vanishing with each sip you take.
— Maggi with a twist
Everyone has Maggi at home, and we all know how to cook it. But don’t eat it just like that. Add a little bit of butter and a little bit of cheese but don’t stop there. You could top up your Maggi with scrambled eggs, shredded chicken or anything you want.
— French toast
If a yummy French toast drenched in butter and maple syrup can’t uplift your mood then I don’t know what will.
1. Beat egg, vanilla extract and ground cinnamon in a shallow dish.
2. Stir in the milk.
3. Dip the bread slices in the egg mixture and coat it evenly on both sides.
4. Cook the bread slices on a lightly greased non-stick pan on medium heat until both sides turn brown in colour.
Pizza is the solution to most our problems, isn’t it? So go and bake yourselves these tiny pizzas.
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
½ teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons white sugar
3 sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and diced
2 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
4 chopped green onions
1 egg, beaten
1 ½ cups buttermilk
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, basil, oregano and sugar into large bowl; stir until well blended. Mix in tomatoes, 1.5 cups of cheese and onions. In another bowl beat egg, whisk in buttermilk and stir until combined. Spoon batter into muffin tins until half full. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup of cheese on top of the muffins.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into centre of the muffin comes out clean.
— Red wine hot chocolate
When you’re low and can’t resist the urge to text your ex, get up and go make yourself a cup of red wine hot chocolate. Its chocolate and wine in a glass, for sure it can stop you from sending a text.
1 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons bittersweet chocolate, shaved
1/2 cup red wine
1. In a small pot over medium heat, add milk and chocolate and cook until the chocolate has completely melted and the mixture is hot. Pour into a cup and add red wine. Stir until mixed.
