Chocolate Perfection Pie√√

Apparently this pie is made for royalty, no really this is Queen Elizabeth’s birthday pie!!!!

Chocolate Perfection Pie
Serves 8 

For the pastry:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup vanilla sugar
1 stick unsalted butter (cut into small pieces)
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons heavy cream

For the filling:
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon white-wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 ounces Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate (1 1/2 bars)
1/2 cup water
2 egg yolks
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 ounces Ghirardelli white chocolate , grated (1/2 bar)

1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and then prepare the pastry case/shell. In a large bowl add the flour and sugar and rub in the butter to resemble fine crumbs. Add the egg yolk and cream and form the paste into a ball.
2) Roll out the paste and line a 9-inch flan ring, then partly bake the flan.
3) Prepare the filling. Place a mixing bowl over a pan of boiling water (like preparing hollandaise) and add 2 eggs, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vinegar and the salt. Whisk until the mixture starts to foam and then remove the bowl from the top of the pan to a cool surface. Continue whisking until the mixture reaches the ribbon stage. Pour onto the base of the flan and return to the oven until the filling has risen and is firm to the touch, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven to a cooling rack and allow the filling to sink back into the shell. This is the first layer of the flan.
4) Melt the 6 ounces of chocolate and add the water and egg yolks. Whisk until combined. Spoon half of the chocolate mix over the top of the sunken filling and return the flan to the oven for a further 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the flan to cool completely. This is the second layer of the flan.
5) Beat the cream and cinnamon until stiff and carefully spread half of the mix into the flan. This is the third layer.
6) Fold the remaining cream and cinnamon mix into the remaining chocolate mix and spread into the flan. This is the fourth layer. Sprinkle on the grated white chocolate and refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.

Summer Shoe Game

I am pretty sure that I have a major addiction to sandals!!! Honestly I wear them all year long!!
I’m guessing it’s my inner California girl coming out haha!!
But let’s get real flip-flops, gladiator sandals, wedges the list goes on and on!! Every girl needs at least two of every kind!!
So here’s a few examples to work off of!!

Flip-flops:
These are the main go to summer shoe!! Literally everyone wears them babies to 80 year olds!! So stock up. I bought the cheap foam ones from Walmart for 50 cents!!!! But you can also go crazy and buy some for $$$$!!!
Which ever you choose buy multiples!!

Gladiator:
These are awesome. When they first came out they were simple but lately the fashion world has went all crazy and now you can get the ones that tie all the up your leg!! They’re super sexy and way Gypzee looking!!

Wedges:
I love these!! One because they are super cute and casual; plus when you need to dress up an outfit they work perfectly!! And best of all they’re the only heel that doesn’t hurt your feet!!

Momerview With Tyler Rich’s Mom Monique

Back in August I discovered a newcomer to the Nashville Music scene, you might have heard of him, he’s the extremely talented (and handsome) Tyler Rich!!! He’s a country boy from Northern Cali and he knows a thing or two about writing music that makes you love him and country music!!
The first time I heard his music was on YouTube when I typed in the wrong thing and his song “California Grown” came on; I was looking for the song that’s played in the car commercial (I still don’t know what the song is lol)!
So I jumped on the Tyler Rich fan train, I’ve posted his music all over the place!! I feel like I have a duty as a fellow country music junkie to anyone from Cali repping country music!! I mean honestly if you’re from Cali than “California Grown” is the anthem!!

∆Review “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To∆

I am a true believer that Billy Currington does not get enough play!!! But this song is going to change all of that!!!
I’ve been a fan of his since before he was swinging on a Chandler with Shania!!

So when I heard his new single “It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To” I was so excited!!
This song is on point from the lyric, to the vocal, to the band!!
Every single part if this song is amazing!!

The beginning of this song starts with a mid tempo jam about how his ex hurt him! Then the chorus hits and it hits you right in the heart and you’re like who in the world would ever dump Billy Currington!?!?!?! It says what we all want to after a bad break up!!!

I would have to say that this is one of the best vocals that I’ve heard from Billy, it makes me wonder if this song has a story behind it!!!!

I watched an interview that Billy did with One Country and apparently this song was wrote and recorded in just a few hours!!! That’s what I call genuine country music!!!
Check out the interview here!!!

So here’s my advice if you just went through a bad break up; get in the car, turn on this song as high as it’ll go and drive!!! It’ll make you feel better trust me!!!!

Follow Billy and keep up with all the music:

~Water Cleanse~

I so don’t drink enough water!! I guess I figure that coffee has water in it and I drink that every day so I’m good.

Now I’ve been trying to be more healthy. I have heard all about Juice cleanses and skinny tea’s. I did a ton of research and honestly think that they are so not good for you!! I decided to try water!! I mean it’s all natural!!!

Here’s the plan!! Wednesday June 1st I’m kicking summer off with a bang!!! Only water for the entire month!!!
No soda, coffee, tea, juice NOTHING but water!!!
I’m going to post about how my skin is feeling, how I’m feeling, both mentally and physically every seven days!!!
So if you want to join me take a selfie on June 1st with the #GypzeeFit and don’t forget to tag me on Twitter and Instagram @thetypzeegypzee!!!!

I can’t wait for those selfies!!!!
