The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 7 years to get that many views.
I saw, that Elena posted a delicious low protein recipe for Christmas on facebook. Here’s a picture of the two Santas: Elena and her daughter who has PKU. Thank you Elena, for giving us this recipe, it’s a modification of a traditional Italian recipe.
Low protein Pandolce genovese
85 g margarine
100 g sugar
300 g low protein flour
1 pinch salt
10 g pine nuts
25 g diced Shoxxi chocolate (the original version has the orange peel and candied Citron)
100 g rice milk
6 drops of Orange aroma
1 sachet of baking powder
Work margarine with sugar, then add flavorings (vanilla, orange and salt).
Join the flour and then a little bit of rice milk.
Add raisins, citron and orange (or chocolate).
Separately, mix the flour and yeast.
Add to the mix flour, baking powder and milk.
Bake in the oven at 180 for about 30 minutes.
I hope you’re all having a great Christmas time. Unfortunately, I couldn’t enjoy so much, since I had tons of work. But now, since yesterday, I’m on vacation for two weeks now. Time to really enjoy life, try out new recipes, prepare new postings for you, 🙂 and simply relax.
Ok, the time where you open Advent Calendars is almost over now, but I wanted you to show my calendars 🙂 I have three to be precise. One is from my mother, with one lottery scratch ticket for every day, one is from my colleague, a very special calendar with tea bags!! Have you ever heard of this? One tea bag with nice Christmas quotes and delicious tea, today I had Vanilla-Rooibos tea. I found it so thoughtful of her, she knew I’m stricter with diet now and she told me, she wanted to have a good Calendar too (normally, the ones that are most common over here are Chocolate calendars..)
The third calendar, I bought for myself 😉 It’s a traditional chocolate calendar, BUT with low protein rice milk chocolate. I decided to try it out, thought it was already available last year. The German company MetaX is selling this calendar. The chocolate is delicious, a star-shaped chocolate behind every door. Yummy. And one piece contains 7 mg of Phe.
it’s time to say thank you for all your support, comments, inspiration and your lovely e-mails. You’re actually motivating me in the same way, you’re telling me that I motivate you and help you with your daily diet. It’s great to hear this!
I might be a bit cheeky asking this, but I would LOVE to reach 100 followers in 2013.
Would you make me a wonderful Christmas present and promote this PKU blog, if you like it? If it inspires you?
