In today’s episode - chocolate almond banana “tart” (wanted to make a tart, but couldn’t find that pan - must be at my mother’s). I’d like to share this with you so you too can be anxious about how it will turn out (we’ll know in a few hours when it’s chilled). Let’s begin!
I made a press-in tart crust from oat flour, almond flour, olive oil, xylitol (can use sugar) and salt. No rolling, just press it in and bake.
Bake for 12 or 13 minutes (or just until the edges are starting to get golden) on 375 F (190 C) and let it cool. Chop the chocolate…
…and place it in a heat-proof bowl. Bring heavy cream barely to a simmer.
Place butter in the bowl with the chocolate and pour the hot cream over it.
Cover with plastic wrap (or plate, lazy me), and let it sit while you peel and arrange the bananas on the crust.
What a poor arrangement. Using a whisk or a spatula, combine the chocolate-butter-cream mix until combined and smooth. I added a few drops of almond extract here (a big marzipan fan).
Sprinkled with sliced slivered almonds and covered with plastic wrap, so it doesn’t get that fridge-smell (you know what I mean).
I hope my ingredients amounts/ratios will turn out fine - in that case I’ll share the whole recipe. Until then…
↠ Unraveling the reasons to Park Jimin’s assortment into Slytherin.
Park Jimin, for lack of a better
word, is magnetic. An eye catching grandeur. A brilliant meteor cutting through
the dead of the night. A glitter of gold and silver. It is no exaggeration when you say you would find
yourself singling him out of many other ground-swept robes, clicking heels,
wand wielders. It’s not the hair, no –not the locks of fireplace or
charcoal ashes, it isn’t also the distinct pitch weaving through buzzing
chatters nor is it the recurring dark smoke filling the air at the back row in charms.
Thinking of the reason alone sends a pang of melancholy through your veins as
your mind tries to block out the patches of defiled memories almost
instinctively. But the unavoidable fact of the matter is, Jimin was once your

Tsukishima is embarrassed at first, but he eventually goes along with it. Yamaguchi takes Tsukishima to the CD shop where they pick out albums and headphones for each other, before they exchange chocolates. Yamaguchi won't stop telling Tsukishima how cool he is, which leads to a very red-faced Tsukki.<p/><b>IwaOi:</b> Neither of them knew where to go so Oikawa just invites himself to Iwaizumi's place. Oikawa's chocolates look so perfect that Iwaizumi suspects that he bought them and didn't make them by hand, which leads to Oikawa pouting at him. Iwaizumi tells him he's trying way too hard to be cute, but kisses him anyway.<p/><b>YakuLev:</b> Lev drags Yaku to the amusement park and points to height limits just to piss him off.

Takeda gives Ukai the ear piercing accessory he wanted and they go to a chocolate café to eat.<p/><b>HanaMatsu:</b> Matsukawa gives Hanamaki shop-bought profiteroles, because he attempted to make some at home and his mother banned him from the kitchen for the next three months after that. They both have a movie marathon at Matsukawa's house while snacking on the profiteroles, and have a dance-off to Disney songs.<p/><b>BokuAka:</b> Akaashi has been dropping hints that he wants to go on a date with Bokuto, but he completely forgets about the fact that it's Valentine's Day until Akaashi reminds him casually. Bokuto starts to panic because he feels like it's his job to make Akaashi happy, and literally every place they can think of is fully booked. They settle on taking a walk through nature while talking about how much they love each other.<p/><b>KuroKen:</b> Kuroo has everything planned out to perfection. They start off the day by riding a hot-air balloon, which was surprisingly well-liked by Kenma. They go on a small shopping spree and before Kenma gets tired, Kuroo takes him home and the two chill out at each other's houses for the rest of the day. Lots of affectionate bodily contact and hugs, mostly initiated by Kuroo.<p/></p>
I can’t lie and say that I was completely terrified of this meet up with Taehyung. I felt as though there were still some healing cuts, I know I seem as though I’ve got my shit together now and I know I may seem as though I’m okay. But in reality I’m still terrified. I’m easing myself back into my old habits, trying to be the me I was before. I’m trying but I don’t know what’s real and what’s fake.
Author’s Note: This imagine is HEAVILY inspired by the scene shown in the gif above which is from one of my favorite movies ever, The Wolf on Wall Street. My request are open yet nobody sends me request so I guess I will only write when I’m inspired, hopefully, the more I write the more willing you guys will be to send me a request. Anyways I hope you enjoy this imagine!
Warning(s): Slight smut
You lived the good life. The real good life. The life that you fantasized about when you played with your Barbie and Ken dolls when you were younger, it was crazy to say that all of those dreams you had literally came true. You lived in one the most luxurious mansions in LA; 10 Bedrooms, 20 Bathrooms, 3 Kitchens and 40 acres of land were all at your disposal. It was a complete understatement to say that you lived a lavish lifestyle. But no matter how much money you had you refused to let I get to your head, you wanted to remain the same humbled city girl that you were before you met Luke.
You worked as a secretary for Hemmings Enterprises for 3 years before the CEO, Mr. Luke Robert Hemmings, caught your eyes. You were working late one night, overwhelmed with work due to a printing mishap that happened earlier in the week. You were just finishing up your work and decided to run quickly to your supervisor desk to put down the files you finished working on when suddenly you bumped head first into him. Luke.Mr.Hemmings himself was staring right back at you with his blue crystal eyes and disheveled hair. You had never seen him, not in person at least but the rumors were true he was stunning. You snapped out of your initial shell shock and quickly gathered up the files in sheer panic of upsetting him, he let out a soft chuckle before kneeling down and helping you gather the files. He walked you to your supervisor’s office and out of the building, giving you a ride home to your flat. And the rest was history, Luke would always find a way to see you more and more despite your busy schedules, and when he couldn’t you could always count on some special floral or chocolate package to be placed on your desk with a sweet note from Luke.That was 7 years ago, and know you lived the life you always wanted as Mrs.Hemmings with your amazing husband and newborn daughter Reagan.
You rocked back and forth in your rocking chair, careful not to make any harsh movements to wake Reagan. Your beautiful baby girl rested her softly on your chest with her mouth slightly open, her little chest rising and falling as she slept peacefully in your arms. Once you were sure that she was sleep, you let Reagan rest in her crib and turned on her baby monitor. Putting Reagan to sleep was the only thing keeping you calm at the moment, Reagan innocence allowed you to stay calm no matter how mad you were at Luke. You glanced up at the princess clock hanging above Reagan’s room door, you let out a soft groan and shook your head. “I’ll be home in a little bit I promise, and then I’m all yours” was the last thing Luke said to you before he left early last morning for his business meeting, and here you are staring at the clock that read 12 o'clock the following day with no signs of Luke. Saying you were pissed was a complete understatement, this was the 5th time this month that Luke pulled this bullshit and you were fed up. You hated the fact that he was busy and would stay out all night doing god knows what with god knows who while you were left taking care of your cranky little girl. This was the final straw, somehow someway you were gonna make Luke pay for leaving you like this.
With a sleeping Reagan and a practically empty house, you decided to catch up on your favorite shows. In the middle of your Gossip Girl binge your phone lightly buzzed, you let out a slight groan as you grabbed it from the coffee table and squinted adjusting to the brightness of your phone. Hey, baby I’ll be home in 10 minutes, can’t wait to see my two favorite girls, Luke finally decided to text you but you were not impressed at all. You rolled your eyes and tossed your phone to the side of the couch before getting up and heading upstairs. You refused to make him think you were waiting for him to come home, you decided to head up to Reagan’s room and clean up a bit. You suddenly heard the sounds of your front door opening and Luke taking off his shoes and coat, “Babyyy I’m home”. A part of you was ecstatic that he was finally home, but anger quickly washed over you as you remember the false promises of yesterday. You sat yourself down by Reagan crib on the floor as you tossed her toys into her toy bin. “There you are babe”, Luke smiled as he walked into Reagan’s room “I called you but you didn’t answer me”. “Sorry I was busy”, you smirked at your mimicking tone, you were gonna make this boy pay. You had changed into one of Luke sheer white business shirts before you started Gossip Girl bingeing and you can see that Luke was having a hard time not taking a peek at your body. “Oh,” his voice trailed off, “Well you look amazing babe, you’re sight for sore eyes”. “Oh really?” You questioned him innocently as you unbuttoned three more buttons on the shirt giving Luke a better view of you swollen breast, “funny you say that. I would think you didn’t want to see me since you never want to come home”. You heard Luke curse under his breath as he ran his fingers through his hair, you had him exactly where you wanted him. “Shit baby I’m sorry I know I said I would be home, I just caught up with work and I ended up pulling an all nighter”, Luke continued to ramble on and on trying to explain his disappearance but you didn’t want to hear it. “ You know what baby”, you shook your head cutting him off, “I think we both deserve to relax you know. I have been so stressed and I need to feel loose so you know what I decided to do”. “What..What did you do baby..” “I decided that I need to change up my wardrobe and be more loose, so I threw all… my panties..away”, you practically whispered as you spread your legs giving Luke a view of you wet, glistening pussy. “Jesus fucking Christ”, Luke whimpered as he fell to his knee in shock, you two hadn’t been intimate since Reagan’s birth and he would be lying if he said he didn’t miss that beautiful pussy of yours. “And I also thought, why do I have to wear sweats and pants all around the house my pussy just feels so trapped. So take a good look daddy because you’re about to see a whole lot of this around the house”.You smirked as you saw Luke begin to crawl slowly over to you, completely caught up in a trance and ready to give you all the attention and pleasure you could possibly desire. “But no touching” You placed your high heel softly on his forehead, pushing him down until he lay flat on the carpet. You heard Luke let out small whimpers and groans, “(Y/N)..Baby..I’m sorry please just let me eat your pussy .. I swear I will make it up to you”. He was practically begging for it but all you could do was laugh, “Oh no Daddy, Daddy won’t be getting anything because Daddy’s in Trouble”
A/N: A little bit of drama in this part, I wrote (Y/N) to how I would react to the situation - which far enough, is slightly irrational but hey, it won’t last long. Thank you all for being so patient with me writing this series, life is an absolute bitch lately.
“Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to Rosie, happy birthday to you.” The people around you sang all together, but all out of tune. Your eyes were focused on the little girl in her blue dress with a tiara on her head, smiling from ear to ear as she attempts to blow out her candles.

sensation and nearly gave in, but I couldn’t.
I quickly broke

“We need to

I gestured for

to force my mouth to say what he needed to know. My heart was not beating
anymore it was racing.

words, were the most powerful words that I had ever spoken. They didn’t just
mean that there was a human being growing inside of my stomach right now. No,
it also meant that our lives were going to change drastically.
His eyes widened in shock.

You can’t be pregnant. Not now.” he jumped up from the bed. I didn’t know how I
had expected him to react but definitely not like this. I was aware of the fact
that he wasn’t going to be jumping around with joy but being angry with me was
the wrong reaction.

that’s way too young. We want to go to university. You can’t have a baby, okay?
I don’t want it.”

I could hear sounded like 'I don’t want it’.

Now that I needed him the most. His slender figure stood in front of me but my vision
was blurry. His cheeks were red and his expression was angry. I eyed him and
instead of seeing my beloved boyfriend, I saw a monster.

child. Tears were streaming down my pale face and I couldn’t believe that I had

with Dan. And got a future as a single mum.
heard something inside me shatter and for a short second I was so overwhelmed
by emotional pain, that my vision got black and I was close to throwing up. I
grabbed the bedpost and my fingernails dug into the light wood.
I just sat
there and cried for a few minutes while Dan just watched. He stood there and
watched me cry instead of holding me close, instead of telling me that everything
was going to be alright.
But I had to be strong. Not for myself but for
the tiny thing that was growing inside of my stomach. I had to be strong
because one day that tiny thing would call mum. I regained strength and tried
to stop crying.

And now I

had died during giving birth, he wouldn’t know. He didn’t even know whether it
was a boy or girl. I obviously knew a bit about him though.

was actually living together with the guy whose videos he showed me when we
caught myself starring at his Youtube channel, but I have never dared to click

me to look at my son, since he looks like the mini version of him with lighter

I walked up
the dirty stairs and after checking the directions I got on another bus. I hadn’t
been in London for ages and just realized how much I had missed this beautiful
place. I got off three stations later and started searching for the address that
I was given.
As I passed
the numbered houses and got closer to the one that I was searching for, my
stomach was tied into a knot and I was seconds away from vomiting into Dan’s
plants next to the his red front door.
I stared at
the closed entrance for almost five minutes until I gathered the strength to
ring the doorbell. I waited and while I hoped that nobody would answer I prayed
that this was the right address and that I’d found him.

guided me up the stairs.
As he saw
that my hands were shaking he eyed me worriedly. Although I had already planned
what to say a million times and imagined how this situation might go, I was
still fatally nervous.
“Who is it

without him following I entered the room.

drinking coffee and reading the newspaper in the lounge. He looked up from the
white pages as he saw me. A confused expression appeared on his still beautiful
face. The 18 year old boy that I had left 5 years ago had turned into a man. He
wasn’t slender anymore and his arms didn’t look like they were too large for
his body. He got rid of his long hair just like his friend Phil. Although I
loved his fringe I had to admit that this hair cut suited him very well.

you’d never see me again. To be honest Dan, I really wanted to never see you
