Hi lovelies. Today, we’re going to talk about coconut and chocolate. Because coconut and chocolate are a match made in heaven. I’ve combined these flavors to make crumble bars. A base of chocolate, topped with coconut custard and finished with crunchy chocolate crumbles. Even if you don’t really like coconut, you might like these. The coconut flavor isn’t too heavy. But you can also easily turn these into vanilla chocolate crumble bars.

Here I go again with the muffins. Sorry -not so sorry-, I just love love love making muffins. They’re so easy to make and easy to eat on-the-go too. Today, I’ll show you how to make the best moist and fluffy apple muffins with a crunchy crumbly top. These muffins are loaded with cinnamon so they’re perfect for this season. For this recipe, I used Gala apples. Why? Because I had those on hand and was too lazy to take another trip to the supermarket lol. You can basically use any apples you like. Granny Smith’s would be great too. It just depends on what kind of apples you like. So be lazy like me and use whatever you have on hand. Continue reading “Apple Crumble Muffins”

Mindful Monday #08: Things To Be Thankful For

chai-tea-latte01_01

The past few days I’ve been stuck in a negative spiral. I feel pressured by people around me. Needless to say, I feel a bit down. But as I believe in creating your own luck, I decided that I’m going to take matters into my own hands. The negative spiral stops here. I need to get back and focus on the positive things. Because there really are so many positive things in my life. It would be a shame to let the few negative things cast a shadow on all the positive things I have. Therefor, I decided to recall (and repeat) three things I’m thankful for everyday. And I thought it would be nice to share today’s three things with you guys (and maybe inspire you to do the same). So here are three things I’m thankful for today:

  1. That I got safe to work (by car)
  2. My delicious noodles for lunch
  3. The thankful patient I had today

What things are you thankful for today? Tell yourself out loud and/or let me know in the comments below. And for those of you who are having a bad day right now: You can do it. Maybe not this instance, but you’ll get there. Keep going.

Love, My Linh
