11 Pancakes You MUST Try Before You Die
OH GOD YES. Looking at these pictures... makes me feel things. In the part of my brain that I'm pretty sure is usually reserved for hot guys with abs. Yeah, I'm pretty sure my attraction to these pancakes is inappropriate. But just look at them, people. Have you ever seen anything more beautiful? A life without these pancakes... might not be worth living. (JOKE ALERT. LIFE WITHOUT PANCAKES IS JUST FINE PLEASE DON'T TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY AAHHHHHH) Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes First up is this mind-blowing creation from Spicy Southern Kitchen. Created especially for her daughter's birthday, these peanut butter-infused pancakes have mini peanut butter cups in the batter, and are topped with chocolate sauce and peanut butter whipped cream. There's no way you could feel sad while eating these (unless you have a severe peanut allergy). Scroll to see additional images! Double Stuffed Oreo Pancakes While we're visiting the Spicy Southern Kitchen, it would be remiss not to include the pancakes she created for her daughter's previous birthday. That's right: Double Stuffed Oreo pancakes!! Rich, chocolatey pancakes stuffed with thick Oreo whipped cream. I have just one word for these: uunnnnngggggghhhhh. Cake Batter Pancakes Maybe chocolate isn't your thing. You know, because you're an evil dictator or a mass murderer. That's fine. Try these sweet, mouthwatering Cake Batter pancakes by The Girl Who Ate Everything. Cake batter-flavored pancakes topped with a vanilla glaze and colorful rainbow sprinkles are exactly what you need to bring some joy to your sad, chocolate-less life. S'mores Pancakes Vivian & Me has made all your dreams come true with these amazing s'mores pancakes, packed with chocolate chips and slathered with marshmallow fluff. They look, in a word, amazeballs. I'm also quite partial to the version by We Are Not Martha (see last picture), which are absolutely slathered in chocolate. Included here as an honorable mention. When I make these, I'll probably end up making some kind of hybrid of the two recipes. Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes This is not fair. It is not fair that these pancakes exist, and I'm on a diet. The swirly cinnamon goodness and warm glaze is almost too much to handle. Pixelated Crumb, who brought these beauties into the world, calls them "hands down the most extraordinary pancakes I have ever had." I don't doubt her. Strawberry Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes It's fruit! It's healthy!! Right?? These look like they jumped out of Martha Stewart's kitchen and onto your breakfast table. With homemade strawberry syrup, delicate lemon flavor, and fragrant poppy seeds, you can't go wrong with this beautiful creation by La Creme de la Crumb. Double Chocolate Pancakes If you really, really want dessert for breakfast, then you'd better go with these decadent Double Chocolate pancakes by Bakerella. The cakes, the sauce, even the GARNISH for Pete's sake is chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. YUM. You could also lighten them up by skipping the sauce and garnishing with fresh berries, but where's the fun in that? Lucky Charms Pancakes And now for something completely different. That's right; Lucky Charms pancakes. With marshmallows in the cakes as well as on top! Now THAT'S magically delicious. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day, or just I'm-An-Adult-I-Eat-What-I-Want Day. Get the recipe from Betty Crocker. Apple Pie Pancakes with Vanilla Maple Syrup It wasn't long until somebody brought the apple into this. After bananas, apples and cinnamon might be the next go-to flavor combination for pancakes. You're in luck; these pancakes apparently taste exactly like apple pie. And topped with vanilla maple syrup? Forget it. Fall pancake heaven. Thank you, Averie Cooks. Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes ANOTHER green pancake? I thought those were once in a lifetime. But no โ€“ introducing Mint Chocolate Chip pancakes by the... interestingly named Caramel Potatoes (who names these blogs?)! With just the right touch of mint and yummy mini chocolate morsels, you're sure to love these despite their intimidating color. Breakfast Pigs In A Blanket On A Stick Oh god. Now for the motherlode. I can't stop thinking about these. And I WON'T stop thinking about these, I know, until I try making them myself. They're griddled breakfast sausages, dipped in pancake batter and deep fried. Then dunked in maple syrup and CONSUMED RAVENOUSLY. Mrs. Schwartz's Kitchen has really outdone itself on this one. Aaaaand that, my friends, concludes the list of pancakes you must try before you die. Although if you eat all of these on a regular basis, you might do just that. If you try any of the recipes, be sure to let me know how it turns out :) and snap a pic and make your own card, so we can all drool in jealousy!! XD

Homemade Pop-Tarts? Oh Hells Yeah!
I never want to eat a store bought Pop-Tart again. Not after looking at this recipe, which uses real, flaky butter pastry (instead of crumbly cardboard dough) and your favorite fruit preserves (instead of sugar mixed with red dye 40). The homemade frosting and cheerful rainbow sprinkles are the icing on the cake! Photo and recipe credit go to Jaclyn over at Cooking Classy, an awesome cooking and baking blog that you need to check out! For now, here's the recipe for your new favorite breakfast (or anytime) treat. Homemade Pop-Tarts Prep Time: 20 mins. Chill Time: 3 hours. Cook Time: 30 mins. Difficulty: Medium Makes 8 pop-tarts What You'll Need For the pastry: 2 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling 1 tsp salt 1 tsp granulated sugar 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and diced into 1/2-inch cubes 4 - 5 Tbsp ice water 3/4 cup strawberry preserves, divided (or other preserve of choice) For the icing: 1 cup powdered sugar 2 Tbsp half and half, plus more as needed 1/4 tsp vanilla extract What To Do 1. Make the pastry dough: Pulse together flour, salt and granulated sugar in a food processor. Add butter and continue to pulse until the butter is broken up, and the mixture has a mealy texture. Add 4 tablespoons of water and pulse a few times until it comes together into dough; if it fails to come together, add another tablespoon of water and pulse again. 2. On a clean surface, divide dough into two portions. Shape each into a 5-inch dish, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Meanwhile, line two rimmed cookie sheets with parchment paper. 3. Remove one disk from the fridge; leave the other one to chill. Roll out the dough disk into a rectangle measuring approximately 13 inches by 11 inches. If edges crack, just stick them back together and keep rolling. Trim edges just so, so you have a 12"x10" perfect rectangle. Cut this into 8 5"x3" rectangles. 4. Arrange 4 rectangles evenly spaced on the parchment-lined cookie sheet; spread 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of jam evenly down the center of each rectangle. Seal edges with fingertips, then reseal with a fork. Use a tooth pick to poke the top of each tart 4 times. Let chill in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or up to one week. 5. Repeat process with second disk of dough. 6. Preheat oven to 375ยฐF. With one rack in the upper third of the oven and one in the bottom third, bake frozen tarts until golden, rotating racks halfway through baking. It will take about 25-30 minutes in all. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for several minutes, then transfer to wire rack. 7. Make the icing: Whisk together all ingredients, then add additional half and half a 1/2 teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Spread over cooled pop-tarts, then dust with rainbow sprinkles. Allow to set at room temperature. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy! A little bit of a process, but totally worth it, don't you think? I can't wait to try these sweet treats in my own kitchen! :D

5 Expert Approved Diet Tips for Healthy Skin
Many tend to rely on the external road to get clear, healthful skin. While rows of creams and lotions may work their magic, a holistic and natural diet must always be your primary choice to get there. While we all know that healthy eating is pivotal to fitness, we seem to overlook this connection when it comes to healthy skin. We talked to Dr. Aparna Santhanam, famous dermatologist and author of 'Skin Deep' to determine exactly how much of a difference the right diet can truly make to our skin. Modern life can wreak havoc on one's diet choices Between meetings and hectic job hours, we hardly find the time to grab a snack at lunch. Even when we do, we are apt to elect for fast , greasy, processed foods that leaves us with hunger pangs an hour after. "Shortage of time, greater convenience and more affordability have made eating out a regular affair," states Dr. Aparna. "People keep a track of the calorie consumption but it's actually the calorie density that matters more. Mtec Smart Crash diets can help short-term objectives but they prove to be deficient in nutrients in the very long run", she continues. Such deficiencies show on one's skin earlier or later. Instead of ordering food, spare a couple of minutes the previous night to pack yourself a healthy, homemade lunch. Misconceptions around healthy eating If you've always believed eating correctly intended stodgy, dull food every day, you could be confused. "The perfect diet plan cuts out processed food, includes healthy fats and is balanced", comments Dr. Santhanam. Health, '' she says, has always been equated with weight loss but it actually reflects in other areas of the body too; prime among them being the skin and hair. "These two are the first indications of a healthful diet." She's "It's important to include seasonal produce on your daily diet for assortment, to pay for the vital food groups and so that you eat well-rounded meals throughout the year." Say no to bad choices You know how they say the best things in life are fattening, immoral or addictive? Well, this holds true for food options as well. While an additional spoon of sugar or Pad Thai takeaway might not seem like much, it doesn't bode well for the own skin. "Foods that are high in sugar, are processed or comprise MSG are inflammatory in character. This may affect the skin greatly and make it become oily, blotchy and pimple-ridden," concludes Dr. Aparna. Key ingredients in your meals "Opt for anti-oxidant rich foods that prevent free radicals from impacting your skin", states Dr. Santhanam. www.gezfry.com "Also make sure that the food that you select has lots of Vitamins A, C and E as well as Omega 3 to supply your skin with the right nutrition." A healthy diet that is full of these kinds of nutrients functions from the inside out to create your skin smooth and tight. Eat by colour "Include bright coloured vegetables and fruits such as berries, pumpkin, beetroot, capsicum and pomegranates on your diet. They are anti-inflammatory in nature and help heal skin damage," says Dr. Aparna. In addition to those, proteins and carbs are also nutritional necessities. "Natural dietary protein and complex carbohydrates like jowar and bajra help reconstruct the structure of their body so that your skin remains firm and healthy." That is all you want to eat your way to good skin!
You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
Dry skin? No longer a problem! Amazing results!
Did you know that skinโ€™s surface layers have between 10% to 30% water content, and maintaining this level of hydration it should be your main priority? Most of the time, having dry skin is due to genetics, but can also be influenced by external factors like pollution, personal lifestyle, diet, hormones, climate, medication. A major job has been conveyed by the kind of skin-care items you use, as hurtful and drying fixings can irritate the skin's surface. Despite the reason, the outcome is your skin can't keep up its typical hydration level. Your strategy to restore the skin's surface, so it can remain flawlessly hydrated, is to begin giving your skin what it needs to stay hydrated, unblemished and smooth. Naturally, what you should do? Drinking a ton of water consistently is an useful thing, yet on the off chance that you have dry skin, this speaks to avery significant factor for the degree of dryness. Eat steadily, keep up an eating regimen is the thing that each specialist would state. I state that as well. I won't get into this subject as there are a lot of articles out there that approach this point with increasingly itemized and helpful data. Speaking of beauty, what you should do The most important thing in your beauty routine is to gently exfoliate your complexion twice or three times a week to get rid of dead cells. Because of these, an additional layer of skin is formed, so preventing the build-up of dead cells you allow treatments and moisturizes to go effectively into your skin and maintain the level of hydration longer. Use an efficient natural foundation for dry skin. Why organic makeup? Simply because it is natural, has more healing and hydrateting properties and does good to your skin! Another interesting fact is hot water strips oils from the skin faster than cold water, so I suggest you skip the long, hot showers or baths, I know is more than difficult, but try to limit yourself to a 5-10 warm shower a day to help your skin retain more natural oil into it. You should get worried when... Having dry skin can also be a sign of dermatitis if your skin presents some flaking along with redness. In this case, I recommend you go to dermatology. You might face a serious medical issue that needs professional attention. How to keep your skin hydrated? Using the right products, designed for dry skin, even better if organic and natural, and following a strict daily routine are important steps in keeping your skin hydrated. Restoring hydration to the skin is also important, so there are some things to be avoided if you want to keep your skin smooth. Stop damaging your skin by avoiding the following things: 1. Soaps in bar form 2. Drying cleansers 3. Products with hard or skin-aggravating ingredients like alcohol denat., citrus, fragrance, mint 4. Hot water, as it breaks down the skin 5. Abrasive scrubs or exfoliants 6. Stiff-bristled brushes as it can cause micro-tears in the skinโ€™s surface Conclusion Hope you enjoy my writing and I will be very happy if this article helped at least one of the lady out there. Love you all!
