Keepin' it Simple with a Sweet Treat

Chocolate Covered Banana

i am not a banana person but there is something about the way the flavor and texture transforms once it is frozen, on a stick and covered with chocolate.

simply freeze the bananas until frozen but still soft. while you are waiting melt the chocolate and dip the frozen bananas in the melted chocolate. i like to roll mine in cocoa nibs or sprinkles!

its the perfect healthy treat to satisfy your sweet tooth <3

My Current Obsession: Sweet Rose

if you are ever in the classy brentwood area be sure to check out one of the tastiest and highest quality ice creameries in la. i promise you will always be surprised by their flavor choices. this place can pull it off some of the most unique flavors that provides for a truly adventurous experience.

last night their most interesting flavors were parmesiano reggiano, basil and olive oil. talk about savory choices. i tried the basil and could not have been happier with my decision. if you are looking for something a little more classic be sure to try the salted caramel, it is by far the best in so cal.

Coachella 2013..or not

as the world knows this weekend is week 1 of coachella, all the apartments are cleared out with only a few stragglers cramming their cars full, ready for a weekend of good music, good friends and let's just say good times. i unfortunately will not be joining these lucky folks but for those of you like me, do not fret there is still hope. coachella has set up a life stream for a majority of the acts so guess what people, we can enjoy live music from the comfort of our apts, so there!

check it out here

while were waiting for the excitment to begin, check out some of my favorite vid's of some quality musicians performing live.
