You’re home for the foreseeable future because you’re practicing . And slowly but surely, the panic is starting setting in.
Being someone who likes to be productive with their time, having too much of it is making you run out of things to stay busy, even though you’d initially planned a jam-packed schedule.
So, what do you do?
As someone who loves food, I always turn to cooking to de-stress. And what better way to let the exhaustion of the day melt off, then by making some sweet treats! Here are some of my picks for simple, easy treats you can make with the family.

This is a simple and easy recipe you can easily make with the kiddies. Although it’s a typical breakfast recipe, there’s no reason why you can’t have this refreshing dessert at any time of day. It’s light, creamy and sweet, but not heavy on the palette. So, you won’t feel overwhelmed with the flavor after the first two bites.
The Ultimate Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies
These Mexican hot chocolate cookies recipe with a twist will leave you wanting more!
Soft inside with a crispy outside, these cookies are made using spices and cacao so that you won’t have any added sugars and fats intruding the flavor profile. My recipe uses cinnamon, chili and cayenne to kick things up a notch. But if you have a sensitive palette, don’t worry. The recipe doesn’t call for heaping helpings of the spice.
Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp
We could all use a little bit of comfort right about now, so why not try a good old fashioned apple crisp, like nana used to make!
This recipe can be served with homemade whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. However you want it, just be sure to use the right apples, so the flavors don’t clash. My preference is Granny Smith Apples, although you can also go with Macintosh or Gala.
Creamy Matcha Lychee Ice Cream
The Matcha-lychee combination might catch you by surprise. But if you think about it, it’s a match made in heaven. Pairing the sweet, delicious nectar of lychee with the subtle tropical hit of Matcha—this ice cream is creamy and light, and one you’ll want to have another bowlful of.
The great thing about this ice cream recipe is that though I use an ice cream maker for it, you can also make this without one. So, don’t lose hope!
Mousse Au Chocolate
Can you have a dessert blog without talking about chocolate?
