I haven’t done a weekly update in a while so I thought I was due for one this week. Just a collection of random things I’ve been doing, eating, loving etc… This Butterflake herb loaf is one of the best things I’ve baked in a while and it was fairly easy to do. It’s based on a Bake-Off winner from 1964.
For summer lunches I always crave a nice fresh salad, lately I’ve been making one with vine tomatoes, arugula, romaine lettuce, ricotta cheese and I’ve been using this Panera balsamic vinaigrette. I love it!
My favorite thing at Nobu is the miso cod and whenever I got to a nice Japanese restaurant, I always go for the miso chilean sea bass or cod. I’ve been trying to replicate that recipe for the longest time. Well the wait is over, I found this recipe and it is perfect! It’s worth going to the trouble of getting sake. I use the marinade with chilean sea bass, salmon and it comes out perfectly every-time.
I love a lychee martini and I really wanted to learn how to make one at home. Now that I have a good recipe and I wanted to share.
- 1 oz lychee liquor
- 1oz lychee juice or syrup from the can
- Splash of vermouth
- 1.5 oz of vodka or 2 if you like a stronger drink.
Add all to the shaker with ice, shake well and pour in glass and garnish with three lychees.
I got my little bar set from Amazon ages ago and I use it so much.
True and Co sent me a couple bralettes, I was interested because as much as I love getting dressed to work at home, I have no desire to wear a real bra. This one is my favorite, it’s perfect with a camisole and most of all, it’s so soft and you barely feel it on. It also look great by itself with joggers if you are just hanging out at home. I even fell asleep while wearing it and if that doesn’t speak to the comfort of bra, I don’t know what does.
I left my fiddle fig tree on the balcony too long and it looked so sad and I was so scared all the leaves were going to fall off. I read that they actually don’t like warm weather so I brought it back inside, I put it outside in the first place because my AC is always on lately, this change is over 12 hours. Amazing right? So far it’s doing good.
I had to be up early on Saturday to help my sister with her work, I needed to be comfortable as I would be doing a lot of running around, so I went for my comfiest sneakers and joggers.
She took me to dinner after to thank me, I was tired and lazy so I just switch the joggers for a skirt and sneakers for sandal.
I’ve been doing my manicures throughout this quarantine so when Madam Glam sent me their set, I was hesitant about it at first because I know a lot of brands fail to get gel just right. I tried it and I’ve had it on for a full week and only had one small chip, mostly my fault because I’ve been rough on my nails.
I have this mini UV lamp and that’s all you really need. I also got this bundle of the base, top coat and remover. I am wearing this color above. If you are interested in taking your manis to the next level, I have a code for you, ‘Rachelle30’ for 30% off.
Have a great week and thank you so much for stopping by. If you enjoy this blog, I would really love it if you could leave me a testimonial HERE.
