Vanilla Pro-Nuts

I was trying to figure out if they’re spelled “donuts” or “doughnuts.” With some help from my instagram followers (thankya!), we figured out that it was originally “doughnuts,” but Dunkin Donuts coined the term “donuts.” So now, they’re referred to as BOTH. Cool, huh?

5150 Nut Butter Review

OOOOOOKAY, you all know (or should know) that I am an insanely crazy nut butter addict that should be admitted to NBAA (Nut Butter Addicts Anonymous). I have had the pleasure/blessing/no words of trying 5150 Nut Butter and becoming good friends with their owner, Jordan. He is amazing, and his nut butters go perfectly with him because they are also awesome. I recommend each and every one wholeheartedly. Which one do I love the most? I could not tell you! They are all so unique and perfect. I mean that.

IMG_2844

I took notes after eating each one. I kid you not. First, it’s important to let you all know that these are all chunky nut butters. They’re not chunky like “chunky peanut butter.” Gritty may be the right word? Maybe not- that sounds so negative. I mean that in the most positive way that I could possibly make it because they have chunks of actual nuts in them. YEAH. I’ll let that soak in……………Not enough time, but it’s time for the breakdown.

Chocolate Chip Cookie- This one is sweet, chocolatey, and chunky. It’s nutty chocolatey, obviously because of the nut chunks. Really sweet. Really, really good.

Chocolate biscuit- This one is more nutty. Nutty with a hint of chocolate. I could taste a buttery biscuit when I closed my eyes. I was so skeptical of the “biscuit” part of this one, but I honestly could taste that buttery biscuit.

Cookies & Cream- It doesn’t taste like an Oreo, no, but it tastes like cookies…and cream…I can’t figure out a better way to put it. Just like the name says! Seriously. Like a buttery, chocolatey, nutty cookie dipped in warm milk. Chocolatey. Nutty. Milky. Goodness.

Gluten-Free Cookies & Cream- Okay, so I was surprised by this one because I kind of thought it tasted more like “cookies & cream” than the regular gluten-filled cookies & cream flavor. Maybe? I now am second-guessing myself as I type this. But I remember tasting more chocolate in this one. And uh…who doesn’t love chocolate? Especially with cream ;).  It had a stronger peanut and cookie taste. There’s something else, too. Maybe it’s a hint of coffee flavor? I’m not sure what it is. I just know that I do like this one a lot! I like them both. I like them all.

Health Nut- Who doesn’t like nut butter? And a blend of peanuts and almonds? Yeah. The best of both worlds, seriously. This one has a strictly nut taste, obviously. The chunks are thicker. This one is super chunky, and it has a very natural, pure nut taste, as if you’re sitting there chewing nuts. It’s sooooo different than other peanut and almond butters I’ve had. I LOVE.

NOW GO OVER TO 5150 Nut Butter AND BUY BUY BUY. I seriously give Jordan’s nut butters 1000000000/10.

Onion Burger

Some of you have been asking on my instagram about how I make my onion burger. Fear not! I’ll show you how!

Ingredients:

  • Sliced red onion (I usually use 40-50g)
  • Ground beef (I use 96/4)
  • Burger seasoning (sometimes I use this one)

Slice your red onion into circles while your pan (I use a non-stick pan but still spray it with non-stick cooking spray JUST in case) heats up to medium heat – it gets pretty hot. Cook your onion until it gets caramelized and soft and wonderful. While this is cooking, get your ground beef. Massage the seasoning into the burger. Once your onion looks good, take the beef, roll into a ball, and SMASH on top of the onion (note: your pan should still be at the same heat).

IMG_3080

Let your burger cook for a few minutes (I’ve never timed this). I like to take some of the onion and press it into the meat, as you see in the photo above. Then flip once your burger is halfway cooked through. Once you flip it, smash it down so the juices can pour out. Let it cook cook cook until it’s at your desired done-ness!
