but this is super tasty

My notes on English idioms, unit 4,5 and 6, made with Stabilo pastel highlighters and Stabilo pens point 88, I just love how they turned out in the end! 

I’ve been super productive this morning, maybe it was for that super tasty orange and date fruit bar, definitely my favorite snack while studying!

🍋 KITTY’S 72 CAL LEMON CAKE 🍋
This cake is honestly one of my favourite things, it’s super dense so it’s really filling. It’s really tasty and one slice is only 72 calories! (Total: 12 slices, 864 calories)

🍋 INGREDIENTS 🍋
90g low-fat spread- I’m in Australia so I use salt free margarine but it could be whatever you prefer
90g caster sugar
2 eggs, beaten
90g plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
1 lemon

🍋 METHOD 🍋
1. Preheat your oven to about 150°C/300°F
2. Beat your low-fat spread with the caster sugar, gradually adding the egg until smooth
3. Sift in the flour and baking powder and beat again adding the zest of your lemon
4. Line your cake tin with baking paper (I NEVER grease tins. It’s just empty calories and fat)
5. Bake for about 30-45 minutes or until completely cooked.
6. Take it out and let it cool

🍋 OPTIONAL- LEMON DRIZZLE 🍋
1. Juice your lemon and mix with honey to taste
2. Drizzle over your cake (or over very thin lemon slices placed on top of your cake)
3. Slice and serve!

This is so great for people like me with a huge sweet tooth- it’s perfect for a lunchtime snack, it’s tasty, low calorie, low fat and even lactose free. Enjoy everyone!

Sleep savers✨🌙

As we all know, sleep effects your overall well being, health and happiness infinitely! This is an informational post about all the sleep remedies I have tried, enjoy and recommend. All natural, tried and true🌙

Let’s all have a great sleep tonight.

✨Crystals✨
Howlite: for restful sleep. absorbs anger, calming
Amethyst: relieves nightmares & anxiety. strengthens boundaries
Labradorite: grounding, protecting, clears fears that disrupt sleep
Smoky Quartz: grounding, protects from nightmares
Red Jasper: for recalling dreams
Amethyst, Sodalite & Selenite: good for quieting mind chatter

💖Crystals can be used for sleep by putting them under your pillow, on your nightstand, keeping them in your bedroom, or putting them in a sachet with sleep health promoting herbs and hanging them near your bed/under your pillow💖

✨Essential oils✨

Lavender
Cedarwood
Vetiver
Patchouli
Sandalwood
Wild Orange
Bergamot
Roman Chamomile

💖Essential oils can be utilized for improving your sleep by putting them in a diffuser, using incense before bed that are these scents, applying them in a spray to your bedding+pillows💖

A blend I like to use in a spray bottle that I spray on my bedding and especially on my pillows at night! Kid safe and skin safe 😊
1 oz witch hazel
1 oz distilled water
6 drops lavender essential oil
3 drops sweet orange essential oil
3 drops roman chamomile essential oil

Put in spray bottle, shake to mix!

✨Tea✨

To guarantee that a tea will be good for sleep, first make sure that it is caffeine free! Good rule of thumb is that *most* “herbal” blends and Rooibos will be caffeine free because they do not include Camellia sinensis (the “tea” plant that is the base for white,green,oolong,black & puerh teas)
Rooibos is my favourite tea base because it is naturally hydrating, caffeine free, affordable, and super tasty!

💖Plants commonly in tea that promote great sleep💖
Valerian Root
Lemon Balm
Peppermint
Chamomile
Licorice Root

✨Food✨

Almonds
Banana
Cherry juice
Whole grains
Kale
Walnuts
Dark chocolate

✨Plants✨

Aloe Vera
Gardenia
Lavender
Jasmine
Spider Plant
English Ivy

💖Utilize these plants to benefit your sleep by having these plants in your bedroom💖

✨My favourite sleep chant/prayer✨
Goddess above, queen of the night
Help me sleep in your healing light
Restful sleep, come to me
Relax my body, and let my mind be free
Grant me calm and peace tonight, and
Let me wake in the God’s golden light

That’s all I have for now, friends! May your dreams be sweet and you wake up feeling refreshed.

Warm blessings ❤️

What are you giving up for lent?

Orthodox Christian: Everything, also if you could not talk about meat or anything else tasty for the next few months that’d be super great. 

Protestant who actually does lent: Uh Chocolate? Maybe soda? I dont know yet, I haven’t decided, I gave up coffee last year and almost died, and I don’t think I can do it again. 

Protestant who doesn’t do lent: Christians don’t *have* to do lent, its not in the bible, only Catholics do. 

🌶🌶🍞🥗Lunch today is a massive spicy “tuna” salad sarnie. Super tasty and made without oil!

Recipe for “tuna” spread (makes two very generous portions or four regular portions)

1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
¼ cup canned sweet corn
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp black pepper
1-3 tbsp cholula (the garlic one works best)
1 tsp maggi liquid seasoning ( or just salt)
2 tbsp fresh cut chives
2 tbsp fresh cut dill
Optional 30g of low fat hummus to bind.

Just used a potato masher to crush the chickpeas (you still want some texture so try not to go mad)
Then all you gotta do is add everything give it a mix and stick it on some bread ( I am the queen of complicated recipes 😂)

I added some red onion, spinach and sriracha to make it fancy 😜

The making of our Brownie and Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sundae Bowl.#lovemyjob #funatwork #sprinkles #chocolate#pastrylife

Building a Better Burger– Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the odd burger or two, but don’t you ever wish that the toppings inside your burger were a bit fresher? Maybe a little more wholesome? Dare I say–nutritious? As we know, most condiments and toppings are processed within an inch of their life. They might have been a vegetable in a past life but they only vaguely resemble them now. It’s a labor of love, but I tell ya’ there’s nothing really like topping up your favorite toasty treats with a few homemade touches.

Both of these recipes are vegan and gluten free, so no matter what kind of buns you eat, or what you eat between your buns; everyone will be able to enjoy a homemade and fresh condiment that might even sneak a few extra micronutrients into that sandwich you’re whipping up.

Ketchup

  • 2 -28 oz cans of crushed tomatoes (low or no sodium)
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ of a large yellow onion
  • 3 small cloves of garlic
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • ½ cup of molasses (you can adjust the vinegar-to-sweetener ratio depending on your tastes; I like vinegar)
  • 1 ½ tsp salt (if tomatoes are salted, use less here
  • ¾ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp ground mustard

Directions: Prepare the vegetables with rough chops, it will all get blended out later. Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker, on high, and left uncovered. Stir every hour until it is reduced to the desired thickness. At least 6 hours, up to 10 hours. Blend the contents once they’ve cooled significantly. If you really feel like going through the Hell of smashing it through a sieve you can, but I really don’t care enough to make that sort of mess in my kitchen. I’m not afraid of a few seeds in my ketchup. Should make 48-60 (1 TBSP) servings depending on how much you let it reduce. I froze half and kept half in my fridge.

Pickles

  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 lb of any sweet pepper that isn’t too spicy (I usually use pimientos but there weren’t any, so I grabbed poblanos this time. Red bell peppers would be delicious, too.)
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 3 cups of white vinegar
  • 3 cups of water
  • 6 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black peppercorns

Directions: Prepare the vegetables how you’ll like them. I made coins out of the cucumbers, straws out of the onions, and diced the peppers and garlic. Set the garlic aside for now.  In a large glass jar (such as a flour/sugar canister; it should hold 2 quarts) layer the vegetables and place a few of the black peppercorns between each layer. On the stove, bring the water to a boil. Next, lower the heat to low and place the garlic in. Simmer it for 5 minutes. Then, add the white vinegar and the salt, bring the heat back up to high, and let it boil. Let it boil until the salt completely dissolves. Finally, feed the liquid into the jar. If you have a funnel, use it! Splashing boiling vinegar is bound to suck. Now, cover the jar opening with the lid but don’t seal it just yet. Let it cool on the counter for a few hours before sealing it and placing it in your fridge. They’ll start getting super tasty in a day or two, but I tell you. Once you’re week 1 or even week 2 into your pickles. Holy crap. These should keep for up to three months, but you’ll eat them before then because they’re so frickin’ good.

(A/N) Aloha, guys!! I’m back with some super tasty Doyoung smut, requested by an anon who understands that we. need. more. Doyoung!

Enjoy!

The winter storm warning alert you had received on your phone earlier that day certainly wasn’t wrong, nor did it disappoint. The ground was already completely covered in white and the darkening sky was blocked out with puffy grey clouds that shed snowflakes the size of dinner plates. Luckily for you, you were currently snuggled underneath your favorite blanket in your cozy living room while your boyfriend prepared dinner diligently in the kitchen.

You could hear Doyoung humming softly to himself as you stood up from your blanket cacoon to see what he was close to finished. You loved watching your boyfriend in the kitchen, his broad shoulders shifting underneath his red long sleeve shirt as he carefully tasted the soup. He wasn’t surprised to find you barely hovering behind him, a smirk on his face as he held out the spoon to you, “Open wide.”
