sweet and crunchy

anonymous asked:

Can i have an scene were the gang found out they s/o is not a morning person and try to do something about it? Thank you alot ~

Elsword, once finding out, will continue on his normal morning routines like usual, with some slight changes. He’ll forcefully drag out his S/O this time to the breakfast area, ignoring their complaints on the mornings being too torturous for their own good. He makes it up to them by bringing them sweet, crunchy cereal and a cup of chocolate milk.

Aisha would bicker their S/O awake, nagging and complaining as she’ll nudge her S/O to get up already. If you don’t, she’ll huff as they find breakfast being dragged over to their bed. They appreciate the food she made using magic, even though she summoned the smelliest food for breakfast, cooked goat meat… it’s still delicious though, and you thank her for the meal. Aisha blushes as she turns away.

Rena would laugh and constantly nudge them to get up. She’ll kiss her S/O on the forehead and pat their head. Then she’ll leave them be. She’ll give them 5 more minutes of sleep, she thinks.

Raven would act like he did back with Seris. He’d pull away the blankets, stealing his S/O’s warmth. Then, he’ll constantly remind you that it’s the morning and that you should eat breakfast before it’ll go cold, sitting on your bed and stroking through his S/O’s hair. He continues to do this until his S/O finally gets up.

Eve would give you a gentle pat to wake her S/O up. Or well, she’ll try to, anyway. She’ll end up putting too much strength in it, and her S/O ends up groaning in pain. Also, Eve’s hands are way too cold, the S/O would find. She’s made of metal, so the S/O might feel some discomfort at feeling her frozen hands.

Chung would defend his S/O from waking up. His S/O needed your beauty sleep after all. He’ll constantly watch outside the door and tell the others that his S/O just needed some more rest.

Ara would attempt to steal her S/O’s blanket. She ended up accidentally causing her S/O to roll off the bed and causes a painful awakening. Ara apologized numerous times for her clumsy actions after that.

Elesis would slam the door open, energetic as hell as she’ll shake her S/O awake. Training needed to be done, after all. She ignores her S/O’s groans and begs for mercy, and prompts them to get dressed.

Add wouldn’t do anything. In fact, people would find him still cooped inside his lab, sound asleep. He too, was not a morning person. At best, he’ll end up coming into his S/O’s room and simply end up sleeping with his S/O, snuggling with them. Once both him and his S/O would fully wake up, they’d find Add giving their S/O free coffee.

Lu would playfully jump on her S/O’s bed, And continue jumping until they’d get up. Lu would demand then hold her S/O’s hands and drag them to where ever she wanted them to go. Preferably, Lu would take them so they could have their breakfast prepared by Ciel.

Ciel would give a good morning kiss on the cheeks as he laid down a tray containing a plate of pancakes for his S/O. He’d then sit down and watch them slowly wake themselves up.

Ain wouldn’t do anything either, similar to Add. He preferred having his S/O sleep peacefully as he watched from above. Of course, he’d probably be labelled a stalker by human standards - but he wasn’t a human. So it was fine.

You do not mess with a man’s pregame ritual.  It is a sacred and honored tradition, and everyone knows that interfering with the ritual comes at a hefty cost.  Still, when the world around you changes, you have to make changes as well.

Jack Zimmermann must have his peanut butter and jelly sandwich before each game, but he knew that things weren’t quite right.  He knew it was not the type of bread, or the smoothness of the peanut butter, or the flavor of the jelly that felt out of place. He knew what was missing, but despite it all, he kept trying.  One knife-full of jelly.  Two knife-fulls of peanut butter.  Three strokes to spread it together.  Exactly the way he memorized it, but he knew it was never quite right.

Until one day Jack sat down and pulled a sandwich out of his bag.  It was wrapped in white parchment with small note signed with some kind words and a heart.  It was made with sweet honey-oat bread, crunchy gourmet peanut butter, and homemade pluot jam.  From the very first bite, Jack knew it was the perfect sandwich, not because of what was in it, but because for the first time in years, he did not have to make it himself.

Jack was satisfied, and the ritual was complete.


You do not mess with a man’s pregame ritual.  The Aces understood why Kent Parson must have his peanut butter and jelly sandwich before each game.

But they wondered why he always made two.

Menu #7: Yangnyeom Chicken

KFC…Korean Fried Chicken! Korean fast food at its finest.  The chicken is not only fried once, it’s fried twice so it’s crunchier, and then seasoned with a sticky sweet and spicy sauce (i.e. mainly gochujang - Korean red chilli pepper paste, ketchup, garlic), and dusted with sesame seeds.

Recipe: Chocolate-Peanut Butter Brownie Banana Splits

Sweet Apple Family Cinnamon Chips

Apples + oven = delicious chips that any pony would be happy to munch on!

This first recipe is one of the easiest things you can do so let’s get to it and make some satisfyingly sweet and crunchy apple chips!


You will need:

2 - 3 good sized apples (I like Granny Smith or Pink Ladies. Anything nice and crisp works well!)
Cinnamon
Sugar
Apple cookie cutter (optional)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees fahrenheit

  2. Wash the apples and then slice them thinly with care using a knife or mandolin.

  3. Make sure the seeds are removed and lay the apple slices in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicon baking mat.

  4. If you want to give them shape using a metal cookie cutter you can, if not, continue on and sprinkle the slices generously with cinnamon and sugar.

  5. Bake the slices for 1 and ½ hours.

  6. Flip each slice over, sprinkling with more cinnamon and sugar to taste, and then bake for an additional 1 hour.

  7. For extra crispy chips turn the oven off but leave the slices inside for another hour as the oven cools down.

  8. Let cool and then enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container for up to one week.

Ditzy Crisp Banana Nut Muffins


These banana muffins take a little bit of work but they are undoubtedly worth it. Topped with cinnamon crisp and toasted pecans, every bite is a sweet and crunchy taste of happiness!

What you’ll need:

For the muffins:

¾ cup butter, softened
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
3 cups flour
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 ½ cups mashed bananas (about 4 medium sized ones)
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
½ tsp. vanilla extract

For the topping:

½ cup brown sugar
½ cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1/8 tsp. cinnamon


Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

  2. Beat the softened butter and cream cheese until smooth using an electric mixer set to medium. Gradually add the sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs to the mix, one at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.

  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture while beating at a slow speed just until blended.

  4. Stir in bananas, pecans, and vanilla.

  5. Spoon batter into lined paper cups or a greased muffin tin.

  6. To prepare the topping, stir together all the topping ingredients in a medium sized bowl until combined.

  7. Sprinkle the topping mixture evenly over the batter.

  8. Bake muffins for 25 minutes or so. You can test whether they are done by inserting a wooden toothpick into the middle of a muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean (give or take a few crumbs) then the muffins are cooked through and ready to come out.

  9. Let the muffins cool until they’re just nice and warm, then enjoy with a fresh cup of tea or share them with your friendly neighborhood mail pony!

Garlicky Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash with Greens and Hazelnuts

Spaghetti Squash does not need your baggage. It is not here to be your therapist, or surrogate lover now that you’ve ixnay’d all carb and grain. Spaghetti Squash is a strong, independent woman and can make it on her own.

Spaghetti Squash is not better than spaghetti, because Spaghetti Squash just… isn’t… spaghetti. It’s a vegetable. And it’s a delicious vegetable all by itself. You can drown it in tomato sauce, finagle it into pad thai, and it will predictably be damn fucking tasty– but why not let its own virtues shine. Spaghetti Squash is a study in contrasts. It’s sweet and savory, creamy and crunchy. It’s weird-but-good, straight out of its roasted skin.

We like it served simply, with a little garlicky brown butter, good parm, and textural co-stars. There are a few different schools of thought on how to slice it for roasting. Perfect fucking angel biscuit, Christine, over at Buzzfeed recently turned us on to the ring method. You get longer strings, and a drier squash– but dang. idk. The boats are just so cute. So, do you to the fullest– but do take care to not slice your arm off. Use a sharp knife you’re comfortable wielding, on a sturdy surface, and use leverage (rather than brute force) to get shit done.

Garlicky Brown Butter Spaghetti Squash with Greens and Hazelnuts

  • 1 Spaghetti Squash, about 3 lbs
  • ½ cup Hazelnuts, chop ‘em up if they didn’t come that way already
  • 2 cloves Garlic, thinly sliced (use a veggie peeler or mandolin slicer– carefully)
  • 4 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 3 cups Greens, roughly chopped– we used Arugula because it was in our fridge, but Spinach, Kale, Collards, or Chard are all the tits
  • Salt and Black Pepper to taste
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Serves 2-3

Preheat your oven to 400°

Slice and seed your spaghetti squash, and roast it on a foil-lined sheet for 30 minutes, until a little brown on the edges, and fork-tender.

During the last 10 minutes your squash roasts do three things:

  1. pop the hazelnuts on a sheet and stick it in the oven. Give it a shake once or twice, but otherwise let them get nice and nutty. Take them out when they’re done. YMMV, so check often, but it’s usually about 6 minutes.
  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Toss in the garlic. Let everything get toasty and nice-nice. Conveniently, this also takes about 6 minutes.
  1. Scoop the garlic out of the butter and set aside. Toss in the greens, and turn the flame up to medium. Cook them until they get nice and wilty, and most of the liquid is released. Then kill the heat.

Once roasted (and probably cooled for a sec), scoop the flesh of your squash into the pan with the browned butter and greens. Toss to coat and cook over high heat to evaporate any liquidy business that the squash releases. Season with salt and black pepper.

Transfer the squash to a plate (or the reserved squash skin, you precious little dumpling, your instagram’s gonna shit its pants), top with the garlic chips, hazelnuts, and parm.
