HCB #46: Buttermilk heaven

I’m not a big breakfast eater… honestly, I find the whole breakfast routine to be rather tiresome.. I can think of a number of other things that I’d rather do, with that time spent on making breakfast in the morning… just saying. But, I know it’s the most important meal of the day bla bla bla; so I made buttermilk scones.

I love making dough 🙂
roll it out to your desired thickness
time to cut em out!
egg wash those bad boys!
you know I’m a sucka for cranberries!

I just wake up, warm one up, put some butter on it and I’m gone. 2 minutes tops. Works good for me, more time to do other stuff 🙂
Happy Cooking!

My Beauty Secrets by Lashem

On Sunday, we had an exciting Sunday morning brunching at the Abbey for the launch of Lashem! Here I am testing out to the step and repeat wall…

The food was beyond divine and had all the ingredients that we have in Lashem!
Cucumber, Goji Berries, Cranberry, Grape Seed and Green Tea
We had @GregoryGorgeous in the house!
The wonderful thing about LA is diversity! We had a mix of beauty queens, fashion students, industry mavens, youtube celebs and some ‘FBI-looking guys’ as Shannae would say.
Jamaal Buster – Eyelash guru to the stars + his beautiful friends!
This is how we do! more coming soon!

HCB #45: eat this PIE…

“But I, when I undress me..Each night, upon my knees..Will ask the Lord to bless me..With apple-pie and cheese.”~Eugene Field
It was raining, I didn’t wanna watch TV or be on the computer so… LOL
gotta work that dough the right way… easiest dough to make ever
it should feel nice and firm but soft…
roll it over your pan (easier if you wrap the dough around the rolling pin and then lay it over the pan)
Before rolling, I cut the dough into two pieces; one for the bottom and one for the top…
easiest way to trim the excess is to roll the rolling pin over the pie
I pre-baked it for like a minute or two

apples just dying to just bust out the damn seams!
poke some holes in it…

I gotta get some Vanilla Ice Cream first!
stay tuned…
Happy Cooking
peace and love

HCB #44: bout my GREEN!

After my delish cauliflower balls, I decided it was time to make more; only this time I used spinach! I usually only have spinach steamed with garlic, so this was a welcomed and delicious change 🙂

Some benefits for ya!
♥ Low in calories, high in vitamins and minerals, as well as other phytonutrients.
♥ Excellent source of Vitamin K, A, C, B2, B6, E; spinach is also contains magnesium, folate, iron, calcium, protein, zinc, fibre, and MORE! (it’s also super cheap!)

♥ Got some antioxidants in there, as well as 13 different flavonoid compounds that act as anti-cancer substances.
♥ Heart healthy and good for lowering high blood pressure.

“In comparison to red meat, spinach provides a lot less calories, is fat and cholesterol free, and an excellent source of iron. Because iron is a component of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to all body cells, it’s needed for good energy.”-WH Foods

mmm mmm GOOD 🙂
