RUSTIC DARK CHOCOLATE TART

WITH BLOOD ORANGES AND SEA SALT


rustic chocolate tart

In late winter, citrus trees are filled with gorgeous fruits ripened for the picking.  One of my favorite flavor combinations is dark chocolate and orange slices.  This time I decided to make a play on those flavors and kick things up a notch with this rustic dark chocolate tart by dipping blood orange slices in chocolate and adding them to the top with a little sea salt.  

I have been wanting to make something with blood oranges for quite some time because I love the taste and well they are just so pretty I couldn’t resist.  Blood oranges are a little harder to find in my area, unlike other types of citrus that you can find here year round.  I basically had to wait until they became available at my nearby grocery store so as soon as I saw them, naturally I snatched them up with a huge grin on my face!

This was my first time making a chocolate tart and I was a little uneasy about whether or not it would turn out.  Luckily it did and now I can share my recipe with all of you!

This chocolate tart was incredibly quick and easy to make, I would definitely recommend making one of these for your next gathering because they look like you put way more effort into them than what really goes down!  Check out the recipe for this simple dessert and don’t worry if you don’t have any blood oranges available, you can always substitute them with navel oranges or tangerines.

  • Lately, I’ve been feeling like I’ve been so disconnected... I’ve been healing and I apologize that I’ve not been as lively over here, but I’ve been dealing with my own dilemmas. I’ve had two accounts of death from cancer just recently. One I kind of set myself up for because I knew there was no cure and another that was totally unexpected... it’s been a rough ride, but I’m still here and I’m happy and thankful that I can be there for others during these hard times. If you are dealing with anything like this feel free to reach out to me. I would love to help support you and always sending love and light your way! .

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
