INGREDIENTS
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup unsalted butter, cubed
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup pecans, chopped
INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Spread almonds in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until toasted, about 10 minutes; set aside.
In a medium saucepan, combine butter, sugar vanilla and salt over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until butter has melted and mixture is almond brown in color, about 7-10 minutes.
Immediately spread the hot caramel mixture evenly over the almonds. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. After 1-2 minutes, spread the chocolate chips in an even layer until smooth. Sprinkle with pecans.
Let cool completely, about 2 hours. Break into pieces.

We made toffee as my wedding favors and it was probably the easiest part of it all. We didn’t use the almonds in it, but we topped it with different things. The theme for our little wedding was bacon so we did candied bacon on top of the chocolate, plain chocolate, and even sprinkled a little salt for our friends who liked salted candies. Each one turned out delicious!

Anonymous said: Hi. Do you have something like a stretch list or schedule or just a particular order that you do stretches in?

flexspiration:

Hello!!!

I recently just wrote down a workout/stretch routine for myself to get myself ready for the college diving season coming up soon. =)

For the warmup/workout:

  • short run (1-2 miles)
  • 30 jumping jacks
  • 20 pike ups
  • 50 crunches
  • 20 lunge hurdles (it’s a diving thing, you can do regular lunges)
  • 10 back approaches (another diving thing, you can ignore this hahaha)
  • 10 combo crunches (idk how to explain these lololol)
  • 30 second hollow rockers
  • 10 pushups
  • 25 squats
  • 45 second plank

I do this twice, the second time doing only half. As I do this more and more and get stronger, I’ll add to it, and start repeating it moer times.

For the stretching:

  • V-sit
  • Frog stretch
  • butterfly
  • middle split
  • pigeon pose
  • lunge
  • reverse lunge
  • right and left splits
  • pike stretch
  • bridges
  • cobra
  • bow pose
  • feet exercises
