Savoury Pumpkin

13 Oct

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable and relaxing thanksgiving weekend {here in Canada anyways}! The one thing I do love about fall is to see all the colours changing in nature with the trees turning all colours of red, orange and yellow. Along with all that we get to curl up inside and drink hot chocolate, eat soup and start to get used to the chilly weather coming. Here is a recipe I found for a Pumpkin Curry Soup thanks to Wine and Glue blog, thanks! Happy Thanksgiving everyone xx Glamour Planner

Pumpkin Curry Soup

  • 1 small baking pumpkin
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 1 pound of carrots, peeled and cut into circles
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 – 1 1/2 TBSP curry powder (the more you add the more spicy it will be)
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups of chicken stock
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Cut the pumpkin in half, remove the seeds, and place each side flesh side down on a parchment (or aluminum foil or silpat) lined baking sheet.  Bake 50 minutes or until you are able to easily slide a skewer in and out of the pumpkin.  After the pumpkin has cooked, scoop out the pumpkin and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large soup pot over medium heat.  Add the carrots and onions and sauté until the onions are nearly translucent and the carrots have softened, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the pumpkin and stir into the cooking veggies.
  4. Add the curry powder, ginger, and coriander and sauté for an additional minute or two.
  5. Stir in the chicken stock, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.  Bring the stock to a boil and then reduce to the heat to low, cover, and let simmer for 30 minutes.
  6. At the end of the 30 minutes, remove the soup from the heat, and using an immersion blender (or working in batches using a blender or food processor) to blend the soup until smooth.
  7. Top with  Croutons

Louboutin Nutella Cups

19 Sep

Hi my glamourites!

You know when you just have one of those cravings, the one where you just can’t shake, no matter what else you eat or even if you have a little bit of it, you still want more. Well that has been me with Nutella this week! Almost every evening I have been reaching for that jar and finding anything I can to dip into it or spread it onto. I stumbled upon this recipe through foodgawker (my fave food site ever) from a blog called The Baking Robot which I thought was very cute site! This recipe looks almost too pretty and colourful to eat but also that it would be absolutely delicious! Be perfect for Valentine’s Day dessert, but that’s a while away. Check it out xx Glamour Planner

ombrenutellacups005Ombre Nutella Cups

1/2 cup Nutella
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 tbsp milk
red candy melts
pink candy melts
white candy melts

Directions 

1. Line a mini muffin tin with mini cupcake liners. Set aside.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together Nutella and powdered sugar. Stir in vanilla extract. Add milk slowly until you get a consistency that you can work with your fingers and roll into balls. (At this point, you can add more powdered sugar or milk to get your desired consistency. I made a more wet mixture for a creamy filling but it was more difficult to work with.)

3. In three separate bowls, microwave all three candy melts individually in thirty-second intervals, stirring in between, until completely smooth. (I melted about five handfuls of each color.) Spoon the melted red candy first into the bottom of the cupcake liner, shaking the muffin tin as needed to distribute and spread the candy evenly. Repeat with the pink candy melts, spooning and spreading evenly on top of the red.

4. Take about 3/4 – 1 teaspoon of the Nutella filling and drop into the center of the cups. Cover with the melted white candy until flush with the tops of the liners. Decorate with sprinkles and refrigerate until completely chilled and hardened.

Hello Glamourites,

Since August has hit I have realized I haven’t been totally watching how “healthy” I have been eating. It is just TOO tempting to eat all these yummy, greasy, sweet and juicy foods that aren’t necessarily good for you, unfortunately. Obviously my will power hasn’t been strong enough and hey, it’s summer, why not enjoy the delicious things in life! If you are wanting to have something that is tasty but will make you feel better about what you are eating try this smoothie. It is packed with nutritious ingredients and is very refreshing for the hot summer days.  Let me know what you think…and of course the shoe pick as well! xx Glamour Planner

DELICIOUS HEELS~ Blueberry Crumble Muffin with Stiletto Blue Heels

Blueberry Crumble Muffins

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup canned blueberries (I used fresh berries)
For the crumble topping:
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into cubes
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon (I added this in for my own taste!)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a muffin tin by lining the cups with paper muffin/cupcake cups and/or lightly spraying with a non-stick cooking spray (I do both).
  2. In a large bowl, beat the milk, oil, and egg until well mixed.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until a batter just forms (it will be lumpy). Gently fold in the blueberries using a large rubber spatula.
  4. Divide the batter even among the 12 muffin cups (a scant 1/4 cup of batter in each).
  5. Prepare the crumble: use a fork, pasty cutter, or your hands to “smush” together the flour, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon into a crumbly mixture.
  6. Sprinkle the crumble over the batter in each muffin cup.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before unwrapping.
  9. ENJOY
