5 Fandom Friday

Friday, January 20, 2017

Hey look! It's vlog number 2 in 2017! I think I need to take more time on producing these videos, but I get so excited/nervous I just want to hurry up and have them done. I promise that they will get better with time! I'm definitely more of a photographer vs. videographer. Anyway, stick with me and I promise they will be movie quality! HA! Who am kidding?! Anyway, as long as The Nerdy Girlie keeps up with 5 Fandom Friday, I will be doing these posts every Friday. That's right, every Friday, my face talking on YouTube! Gives me a chance to become a pro at editing...maybe. Who knows I might get good, or just keep rolling out these cheesy ones. In addition to the Fandom Friday I also added some questions I was asked on good ol' Facebook. Enjoy!

Happy Friday!

Japanese Cotton Cheesecake

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Are you ever on Facebook and just innocently scrolling along and you see this amazing recipe, and think, I have to make this! It looks easy...right?! That is what happened when I saw this recipe from Tasty by Buzzfeed and thought why not? Well I followed the directions from the video and it came out pretty well. The only thing that was different was that my cakes weren't as big and slightly deflated, but still super yummy! I would probably use less egg whites than what they used. I also forgot to cut my parchment paper so that it didn't bunch up, but I think it added a little character. I drizzled Vermont maple syrup over mine and it was to die for! You can pretty much top this decadent, light, and spongy cake with anything...I would recommend fresh fruit! I ended up chopping it into small squares and snacking on what was left. So delicious! If you are interested in trying this recipe I will share the video below. And let me know if you have any questions!

8 egg yolks,13 egg whites, 2/3 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of corn starch, 
4 oz cream cheese,7 tbs of butter
