Wellness Shot

The Wellness and Cold + Sinus shots from Earth Bar gives a whole new meaning to taking shots. Whenever I feel a cold coming on or a little run down, I head straight to Earth Bar and down one of these shots.

The Wellness shot contains Fresh Lemon, Ginger, Oregano Oil, Garlic Extract, & Cayenne Pepper. It has a little kick on the way down, but will help push out whatever is making you sick.

The Cold & Sinus shot is a Wellness Shot + Horseradish, Echinacea, & Other Immune Boosting Herbs. This shot is super potent and spicy, but is sure to clear your sinuses.

I usually chase my shots with an orange slice and drink lots of water after. Take them two days in a row to really get rid of what is ailing you.

These shots can be purchased at Earth Bar. They are located in the Equinox gyms in Southern California and independently. Visit http://www.earthbar.com for more information.

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars are one of my favorite sweet treats. I like them to have a good amount of tartness and a sweet layer of powdered sugar on top. It is the clash of the tart and sweet all in one bite that I adore. My friend Anna makes the best lemon bars around and I was lucky enough to have them twice recently.

I have posted her recipe below and will be trying my hand at making these sweets soon.

Anna’s Lemon Bars

Ingredients:

Crust

1 c butter softened

1/2 c white sugar

2 c all-purpose flour

Filling

4 eggs

1 1/2 c white sugar

1/4 c plus 1 T all-purpose flour

2/3 c lemon juice

Topping

Powdered sugar for dusting

Directions:

In a mixing bowl, blend all crust ingredients together and press into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Anna used Pyrex.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

In another bowl, whisk together the sugar and flour for filling until mixed. Then whisk in eggs and lemon juice until incorporated. Pour over baked crust.

Bake for an additional 20 minutes and let completely cool. The bars will firm up as they cool.

Once completely cool, dust with powdered sugar. Cut into squares and serve.

Enjoy the tart, rich perfection these lemon bars provide.
