Want a quick, tasty, and low-calories snack that you can make in less than 5 minutes??!! Then do I have a recipe for you! It only consists of popcorn, chocolate sauce, and Kernel Season’s Maple Brown Sugar Tasty Shakes! #ad These Tasty Shakes are originally designed for old fashioned oats. However, you know your girl loves to be a little bit different haha. These little bottles have less than 2 grams of sugar per serving, have no artificial colors/flavors, and can be bought at Walmart for $1.98! It is a freaking steal!
Pour some popcorn into a large bowl. Sprinkle Tasty Shakes maple brown sugar tasty shake on top . Drizzle some chocolate sauce on top (*optional for some but totally necessary in my opinion) This is super simple and can be customized to your taste! If you guys want to learn more about them, feel free to check out the link in my bio! Hope you guys enjoy it!
FALL INSPIRED PROTEIN PANCAKES with BANANA FOSTER SAUCE recipe! Sweet, delicious, and are super easy to make!
In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar, sweetener, vanilla extract, and cinnamon until the sugar dissolves. Add the banana slices and simmer for 1-2 minutes. If you want the sauce to be less sweet, I would suggest to either use bananas that aren’t too riped or decrease the amount of sugar being used! 🤔Also, for those who favor a bit of a bite to their bananas, you can just add it in for 1 minute and stir to coat. :)
Sorry for the 2 weeks hiatus guys! I took 2 weeks off from the Insta life to focus on my studies and I'm really glad that it is paying off! It has been a crazy month so far but you gotta work hard for your dream right?! If you have any questions about the lemon bars or any recipe suggestions, feel free to comment down below and let me know!!! :)
•2 cups + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
•1/2 pound unsalted butter at room temperature
•1/2 cup granulated sugar
•1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
•4 extra-large eggs at room temp
•1 ½ cups granulated sugar
•⅔ cup lemon juice (if you want to add more lemon juice, then just add a bit more flour to compensate for the extra filling!)
•Zest from 2-3 lemons (adjust it to your taste)
•¼ cup flour
•Confectioners' sugar/powdered sugar
■Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
■For the crust, blend the softened butter, sugar, flour, and salt until it’s well mixed. With floured hands, press the mixture into a 9x13 inch baking sheet pan
■Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until the surface has a light golden brown color. Let it cool down a bit before pouring the filling onto the crust
■In another bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and lemon zest. Then whisk in the eggs and the lemon juice until the mixture is well blended. Once the crust is cooled to room temp, pour the filling onto the crust and bake it for 24-27 minutes. Just give it a jiggle or two and see if the filling in the middle is set
■Once done, let it cool down to room temp. Cut into squares/rectangles and dust these delicious bites with confectioners/powdered sugar! ♡also, don't worry about being perfect w the cut! It gives the bars that beautiful rustic look!

Well, hello there fellow food lovers! It has been awhile since I've posted on this page. I just graduated and started my new job at an eye clinic. Because of that, along with being a medical interpreter, a rape crisis counselor in my free time, and study for the MCAT at the same time, things have been a little hectic and I had to put food blogging (one of my favorite things in the world) on the backburner. However, now that I am more adjusted to my new schedule, I can do what I love the most - cooking and taking pictures of food! This simple and delicious apple tart is EXTREMELY easy to make and it will surely make an impression on your friends and loved ones! If you don't believe me, then try it out for yourself! I don't think you will regret it. If you feel like this recipe can be improved upon or you like to add a different twist to it, comment below and let me know!
First, sift the flour, sugar, and salt into a bowl. If you have a food processor, this process will definitely go a lot faster. However, if you don't have a food processor, don't fret! We can do all of this by hand. Of course, it might take you a bit longer doing this manually, but worry not, if you put your mind to it, you WILL get the job done! Add the butter and pulse a couple of times until the butter has broken up and blend into the dough. At this point, you should be able to still see the butter. They will just look smaller and more uniform at this point. While the food processor is still running, slowly pour the ice water into the mixture and pulse until you can see a dough forming! If you are doing this entire process manually, just slowly pour small amounts of ice water bit by bit into the dry mixture and mix everything slowly. I assure you that you will get your dough! Place the finished dough onto a floured surface, knead it into a ball, wrap it in plastic, and refrigerate this for at least a few hours. If you are in a time crunch, you can also just chill the dough for an hour or bake it straight afterward, In my experience, dough that is not chilled will be a bit tougher to roll out and will have a more intense butter flavor. Just do whatever rocks your boat.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. You can line the sheet pan with either parchment paper or aluminum foil. If you only have foil and not parchment paper in your cabinet, no need to run out into the supermarket to get one. Just slather some butter onto that baby and you will still get a beautiful tart. Roll out the dough until it has the right thickness - not too thick and not too thin. If you have bought pie crusts in the past, that is the thickness that we are shooting for. Honestly, if you want to make a smaller or larger pie tart, who am I to judge? Go and do whatever makes you happy! ;) Just remember to trim the edges a bit either with a knife or with one of those rolling slicer.
Before you move onto the apple filling part, remember to put your rolled dough into the fridge. We like to keep the dough nice and chill before the baking process begins! Peel the apples and cut them in half. You can either slice and remove the stems and cores with a sharp knife or a melon baller if you have one. Cut the apple into 1/4 thick slices and place them diagonally onto the chilled dough. I tend to start from the middle and that somehow makes it easier for me. You can place it however you want. I've seen flower arrangements done on pie tarts before! Maybe I will be doing that next time. Lastly, sprinkle the sugar onto the pie and add some cold butter on top of it. We just want it it to melt beautifully and create a nice, caramelized crust for our apple tart.
Bake the entire thing for 45 minutes to 1 hour. At this point, the crust should be slightly brown and you can see the sugar crust gets nice and bubbly. When the tart is done, heat the jelly/jam in a small pan and add some rum into it. Then, use a brush and slather that baby with some delicious jam mixture. Of course, you can add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg to make it more fall-appropriate. And that's it! You are done!
I think it's true when they say that girls tend to have a separate stomach for desserts. In my humble opinion, no matter if you are a man or a woman, almost everyone I have ever met definitely has a fondness for desserts - no matter how full they are! My dessert of choice is - of course - any dessert that has chocolate in it. However, there comes a time when even I have to admit to myself that chocolate-y desserts can sometimes be too overly rich and sweet. During times like those, I would be stuck in a limbo; contemplating about whether or not I should eat that chocolate cake and feel guilty afterward or eat a piece of fruit that I'm honestly not that enthusiastic about.
I have thought about making an olive oil cake before. But it seemed a little bit too plain for my taste. However, with the addition of the blood orange olive oil, the zest, AND the orange segments, however, these extra ingredients definitely bring the cake to a whole other level! The citrus-y components of these ingredients combined with the fruity olive oil create such a lovely cake! If you want to impress your friends, loved ones, or even people at your workplace party, then I highly-recommend you to make this little beauty!
This recipe is an adaption from Gourmet Blend's version of Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake.
