Something Saturdays (6/25/16)

Last Saturday I finally heard/saw the cicadas. Ick. We also had dinner with Michael's dad and stepmom at Gasoline Alley. It was really good and super fun! Then we went over to my (2nd) cousin's house because my (3rd) cousin Emily was in town and they were having a birthday part for her sister, obviously another cousin of mine, Audrey. We only stayed for a bit but it was fun, as always. Sunday I went to my grandma's and spent a little time with my family. Monday was mine and Michael's 1 YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! The bakery we used for our wedding cake, Tiffany's Bakery, were nice enough to make us 2 little cakes (that were 2 of our wedding cake flavors--both white cake with vanilla buttercream, but one had strawberry filling and the other had vanilla custard filling) for us to enjoy! Just as delicious as I remembered :) And Michael was able to get out of work at a decent hour so we were able to go out to dinner. We went to Darby's, Michael had never been there and I'd only been there once at my bachelorette party. The food was tasty and we had a lovely time.

Otherwise I just worked a lot this week. And then we had dinner with Emily last night! And today we're helping Michael's mom move into her adooorable new house!

I CAN'T HANDLE adooorable baby Dory in this clip from Finding Dory! This clip made Michael agree that he'll go see it with me :P We haven't seen it yet though so no spoilers!

Game of Thrones-OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. That ending was everything...yes to all the bad things happening to Ramsay. And the beginning with Dany and the dragons was beautiful too. But oh...poor...poor little BB Rickon. And Wun Wun...the giant...last of his race...you were the real MVP.

Orange is the New Black-SPOILERS FOR SERIOUS SPOILERS DO NOT KEEP READING IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN ALL OF THE NEW SEASON. Poussey....oh no...Poussey. They made that as heart breaking as possible, letting her be so cute and happy and then...this nonsense. I couldn't stop crying. I also hate the new guards, MCC, and the skinheads.

Reign-So nobody can be happy...yeah? Lola :( And Lathe...(although fingers crossed he might still survive.)

{No Bake} Chocolate Hazelnut Tart--Chocmeister Review & GIVEAWAY

I love Peanut Butter & Co. It is well documented. So when I heard they were coming out with chocolate hazelnut spreads...I nearly jumped up and down, I was so thrilled! And, lucky lucky me, they sent me a jar of their new Chocmeister Dark Chocolatey Hazelnut Spread to play with!
Before I tell you about all the deliciousness you are presently gazing upon, let me give you the 411 on Chocmeister Chocolatey Hazelnut Spreads. First of all they come in 2 varieties, milk and dark chocolate. And they're made with 25% LESS sugar and 50% MORE protein than the leading chocolate hazelnut spread brand. Which is pretty amazeballs. And, as someone who immediately tried some: it tastes even better! The hazelnut flavor really comes through and it's perfectly delicious. Just the thing to eat on toast, with fruit, or ya know...in a perfect no-bake tart.
It's summer. My favorite season. I love it. And it's hot-which I'm totally cool with but maybe we don't reeeeally want to use the oven if we don't have to, you know? That's why I wanted to make you guys a super decadent no-bake dessert. And the Chocmeister Dark Chocolatey Hazelnut Spread was so rich and had such a great hazelnut flavor that I knew I wanted to play that up. And I DID. This tart seriously just embodies chocolate and hazelnut-in every way.
First, we have a chocolate cookie + hazelnut no bake crust: tastiness. Then I made a ganache with the Chocmeister and heavy cream. And topped it with chopped hazelnuts. You chill the entire thing and it...is...just...perfect. The texture of the filling is so silky and perfect and the crust and hazelnuts give you a bit of crunch. So good. SO SO GOOD. 

Oh yeah...and if you continue on past the recipe you can enter to win your very own jar of Chocmeister!
