Simple Sweet Treat!

These photos are sooooo old, I think I took them on Valentines day this year! I decided to post them anyways because this past weekend I had fresh berries and some dark chocolate, chocolate chips – so I whipped up this simple sweet treat to fix my sugar tooth! I didn’t even think about taking photos, so I decided to use some of these ones!

Since berry-picking season is upon us, this is the most perfect, easy, after dinner treat! And you only need just a few to satisfy your craving!

All you need is fresh raspberries and some dark chocolate chips! Simply wash the raspberries and place a chocolate chip inside! Instant perfection! And at least you are getting some antioxidants! I usually throw some raspberries in a little bowl and put chocolate chips in 1/4 – 2/3 of them! This is just the right amount – especially since raspberries are good on their own! Remember – everything in moderation!

Sangria Saturday!

Happy Saturday beautiful people! Classes are officially over! Just a few exams til freedom! To celebrate, I am kicking back this Saturday with some Sangria. Wine has antioxidants, right? So one glass won’t hurt! 🙂

My sangria recipe is super simple and takes 3 minutes to make.

All you need is some form of orange/citrus fruit  (I chose tangelo!), some sprite or 7up (I used zero calorie but have mixed feelings about zero calorie drinks – will discuss in a later blog post), and cranberry juice!

I sliced 3 wedges of tangello and then filled the glass as so:

-1/4 sprite

-1/4 cranberry juice

-2/4 wino (Red)

The tangelo is extremely flavorful and so it does not need to be muddled at all! It was so fruity and good! I made some for my family too and they loved it! Definitely a hit! I am for sure adding this Sangria to my list of guilty pleasures! Check out the pictures below to see my new favorite guilty drink for summer!

CINNAMON BUN GOODNESS

This past Christmas Eve, my man and I decided to bake some cinnamon buns. I’m talking ooey gooey cinnamon bun goodness. We wanted to make them so that we could have them with the fam on Christmas morning before opening presents!

I can’t find the exact recipe we used, but it was practically the same as this one here. Cinnamon buns are one of my biggest weaknesses. I can’t say no to them. Bake them in a casserole dish and they are great to serve at brunches and family meals!

Even though I am a huge advocate for eating healthy, I believe to indulge in moderation! These are definitely one of my favorite indulgences.

Valentine’s Day Inspired Hot Chocolate

I kind of have an obsession with Valentine’s day, and heart-shaped things, and pink… and red. I just love, love I guess!

Anyways, a few days before v-day, I was craving some good ol’ hot chocolate (it was cold, I was studying, I needed warmth), so I decided to whip some up, and go a little crazy!

I boiled some water ( I don’t make hot chocolate with milk as I find it becomes too sweet), added in regular hot chocolate mix; then continued on to top it with marshmallows (galore), cacao nibs (that makes it healthy, right?), and heart sprinkles!

It was soooo good that I had to resist making a second cup…

What are your favourite things to indulge in? Fancy a cup of this?
