My buddy and I decided to try something new, so we took a quick drive down to the Ventura pier and stopped in to take a look at the menu.

 

In case you didn’t read my ABOUT page, I am a pescetarian an have been for almost two and a half years now and when I stepped foot into this beautiful restaurant and checked out the menu, I was hooked! They offered all kinds of fish salads, to seafood burritos and my favorite a nice taco selection.

In case it’s hard for you to visualize I’ll insert a pic below of just how hearty and delicious our food was! Not only does it look great but it taste so good that the look of it says it all.. really!

For starters we tried the fish on fire with Ahi tuna and a spicy salsa dip, my main course was the Ahi seared tacos and a blackened salmon salad with olive oil dressing. Seriously one of the most memorable lunches I have every experienced. If you guys happen to be in the area I would definitely recommend checking this place out!

Easy Decadent Chocolate Chip Blueberry Crumble!

To all my fellow foodies out there, sometimes we want to make something so delicious but within the time crunch. I have just the solution! Try out my easy Blueberry Crumble!!

The recipe is so simple , yet so delicious! The best part about this dessert is the portion control. So without further a do, lets jump into the recipe !

Cook time : 15 minutes

Prep time: 5 minutes

Step 1: Gather your ingredients! Grab that blueberry pie filling off the shelf, those chocolate chips in a bag that you’ve been snacking on in the cupboard all week, all purpose four, granulated sugar, brown sugar, 2 sticks of butter and uncooked oatmeal.

Step 2: Make the Crumble! Mix together roughly a cup each of the all purpose flour, uncooked oatmeal,brown sugar and  granulated sugar. Throw the two sticks of butter in the oven for about 3 minutes until it softens enough to spread with. ( but not liquefied!)

Step 3: Mix your ingredients and bake! After your butter softens just a enough to spread, apply it to the dry ingredients slowly and start mixing in the butter with a rubber spatula. Once the ingredients have been properly coated your crumble should look “crumbled” and not too saturated. Grab a sheet pan and spread the crumble evenly. Pop it in he oven for about 7 minutes ,then rotate the back of the sheet pan to the front of the oven for another 7 minutes to produce even cooking.

** While that cooks, pan up your chocolate chips and mix in the blueberry pie filling and toss it in the oven for about 5 minutes. Make sure to mix with a rubber spatula to ensure the chocolate chips have melted through. **

Step 4: Grab your baked ingredients and start platting! Once you’ve thoroughly check that your crumble dried to the right crispiness and your chocolate chips melted into the blueberry filling, grab your dessert glasses or saucers and fill half way with the blueberry chocolate mix and then sprinkle a good coat of the crumble on top and ENJOY!! 🙂

Your Chocolate chip blueberry crumble should look something like this..

Trusting in the Lord

Hello Hello!!

Today we are going to reflect on Proverbs 3:5-6 and what it means to Trust in God.

( TLV) Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and he will direct your paths.

Before we begin, lets take a look at what it means to trust.

When you hear the word TRUST, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Is it committing yourself to someone or something wholeheartedly?  According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary TRUST means the assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something,one in which confidence is placed. When we are talking about trusting God we are referring to put our confidence in Him, to believe in what the Bible says about his promises towards us and to know that He is capable of being available to each and every one of us.

In Genesis 1:1 it says In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, just from that statement alone you know that God is capable of creation and everything that falls into that category such as the human race,our flaws etc. and loving each of us regardless of our sins. God is creator of all things, He created you and I and knows each of us on a personal level. Because we know that God is creator of all things and that He does know each of us on a personal level, we can all say assuredly that God can be trusted.

Trusting in general can be hard ,yes, but the key is to know for a fact and believe without a doubt in your mind that God is never going to let you down (Mathew 28:20- .. And remember! I am with you always, even to the end of the age.) and that all things He allows to happen to you is for your own good ( Romans 8:28- Now we know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose) .

 

Going back to our Verse of the day, in Proverbs 3:5-6, Paul talks about trusting in God with all your heart, every ounce of you! That can be a struggle but the more you believe it for yourself and apply it to those tough times in your life it will start to be easier to accept. Paul goes on to saying that in ALL your ways ACKNOWLEDGE Him and he will direct your paths. When Paul talks about  in all your ways, he is referring to in every circumstance and acknowledge Him, as in His presence and His blessings, and He will keep your path straight.

God wants you to know for a fact that He has your back, that He will ALWAYS be there for you, even in the most difficult of situations. Although it might be really tough to see any good in the present , maybe a family member passed away you were really close with, your parents got divorced, or maybe work has been stressful, just know that God is right there with you!! He sees you struggling, He knows your pain and frustration and He wants nothing more from you then to TRUST in Him and believe that He WILL get you through this.  Sometimes God puts us through challenging situations to help us grow into the person God ants us to be and help us strengthen our walks with Him.

 

All in all, God loves us SOO much! He wants to be there for us for every moment, the good and the bad, and wants us to want to know Him, have a relationship with Him and to TRUST that He knows what He’s doing.

Hope you all have an AMAZING rest of your day and hope you guys got some inspiration from this post!  Thanks a TON for following my blog! 🙂
