I froze part of the Lemon Delicious batter that I made few days ago. Today I baked them, one fully defrosted and the other still frozen. The Lemon Delicious rose but collapsed rather quickly. Now we know how soufflés and cake batter made with whipped egg whites behaves when frozen and baked. The Lemon Delicious was still very delicious and light, though not as light as the normal one. I will not freeze it next time but if I was served one made from frozen batter I would happily eat it.

I am not sure whether to laugh or be shocked with this article. The title says it all “Nestle to help pets and owners lose weight online”. That’s right, Nestle has launched an online programme inviting pet owners to team up with their pets to lose weight. We haven’t fully solved the overweight problem in the human world and we are now already venturing into the animal world. I suppose Nestle has identified a potential opportunity and is trying to stay ahead of the competition.
Pet owners who sign up can obtain tips for exercising with their pet, record exercise taken, track weight loss and share photos with other users, Nestle said.
According to Lisa Talamini of Jenny Craig, "Two thirds of adults in the US are overweight or obese, and more than half of all pets in the country are also battling the bulge”.
I love dogs and had them as pets. I know for a fact that my dog was never interested in a diet. He was never interested in how he looked, he didn’t think that slimming down would be considered a plus by his potential girlfriends. He was slim though, probably because of regular exercise and high metabolism. But dieting never crossed his mind. Like all dogs, he knew he had a short life, and wanted to eat well whatever he wanted.
