Advertisement

We revisit the traditional Italian dessert with this original recipe with Breton flavors. Homemade salted butter caramel and Breton shortbread replace the spoon cookies and coffee in this ultra gourmet dessert!

Number of people 6
Preparation time 40 minutes
Cooking time 15 minutes
Rest / standby time 4 hours

Ingredients
250 g mascarpone
150 g caster sugar
75 g semi-salted butter
10 cl of whole liquid cream
6 Breton shortbread
3 eggs
1 pinch of fleur de sel

Steps
1. Start by preparing the salted butter caramel. In a thick-bottomed saucepan, heat the powdered sugar dry over low heat.

2. Meanwhile, bring the liquid cream to a simmer so that it is very hot when adding it to the caramel.

3. Stir the sugar regularly by turning the pan without using any utensils until you get a nice amber caramel.

4. Remove from the heat and add the hot cream in 2 batches while mixing vigorously to obtain a smooth and smooth sauce. If there are still small, hard pieces of caramel, return to very low heat until they melt.

5. Once the caramel is smooth and homogeneous, add the salted butter in patches while mixing. Finish with a pinch of fleur de sel and let cool in a glass container.

6. Meanwhile, prepare the mascarpone cream. Separate the egg whites from the yolks. In a bowl, whip the yolks with 50 g of sugar until they turn white. Add the mascarpone, mix well and then incorporate half of the cooled caramel.

7. Whisk the egg whites and gently fold them into the mixture, raising the preparation. The cream is ready.

8. Proceed to assembly. Crumble the shortbread into the bottom of 6 verrines. Cover with a drizzle of the remaining caramel. Pour the cream over and place in the fridge at least 4 hours before serving.

How To Redefine Your Self-Worth

Advertisement

A man’s self-worth should not be inextricably linked to the health of his romantic relationship. Imagine how horrible it must be if the value you place on yourself as a man is one hundred percent dependent on whether or not things are going well with you and your woman.
Some men won’t admit this, but because they place such a high level of value on their ability to “make a woman happy” the moment their wives or girlfriends become unhappy with them (or even unhappy in general) they lose their sense of self-worth. It’s as if men like this suffer from a limiting belief, one that equates their personal value with the value of their relationship. Once the relationship falters so does everything else in their lives.
This perpetual dependency has the capacity to immobilize them should the woman they love show any sign of discord. This is a preposterously flawed paradigm to live by. No man should place a major portion of his well-being on his significant other’s approval and agreeability.

The limiting belief that the level of perfection in a relationship equates to one’s self-worth can manifest itself in other ways as well. Some men, in combination with their need to please others may link their self-worth to how healthy their relationship appears to the outside world.

In their eternal quest for approval, they’d rather hide the defects of their relationship in order to maintain the illusion of perfection and/or superiority. But little do they know that they’re not fooling anyone. The
moment someone speaks negatively of their relationship they become self-doubting and visibly insecure. The moment someone speaks positively about their relationship they burst with seeming confidence and aplomb.
Again, I speak of such things not from a soapbox, but from my own humbling experiences. A particularly embarrassing example from my own life comes to mind. My wife and I were once invited to a game-night for couples to play a game called Spouse-o-logy along with three other couples. It’s a game that tests your knowledge of your spouse, kind of like The Newlywed Game television show. At first the game started off quite fun, but as it progressed I soon began to seethe with frustration. We were losing. Horribly.
To make matters worse, I couldn’t figure out why the Dickens I was getting so worked up. As the game went on I grew less and less enthused about playing which solidified our spectacular loss against the other married couples. It was not one of my proudest moments, I can tell you that much.
Now, I am a very introspective person and upon deep pontification the following day I slowly realized why I had lost my cool and taken our defeat so personally. I realized that I had so much of my own self-worth tied to what the other couples thought of my marriage that I couldn’t stand to lose at such a game. Ridiculous, I know, but don’t judge me.

I realized that I couldn’t believe that my wife and I were losing to the other couples. Weren’t we perfect, or at least superior to the other couples? How dare we get those questions wrong in front of our friends and thereby remove the illusory veil of ostensible perfection.
Granted, I did take into consideration that I can be hyper-competitive when it comes to knowledge-based games (it’s a writer thing). I also admit that I HATE losing, perhaps even on a cellular level. But even with those considerations I grasped that something was very off about my attitude towards the whole thing.
I took the loss far too personally and this was BEFORE we were even mid-way through the game. It wasn’t logical, and therefore I deduced that my own inner beliefs about how we looked to others as a couple caused the unnecessary frustration. The challenge thereon out was to redefine my self-worth by becoming more down-to-earth. I needed to
give up my need to have others bear witness to my “perfect” marriage, and I also needed to simply lighten up.

It’s important for a man to learn from his experiences, no matter how painful, embarrassing, or humbling they may be. This was definitely one of the more humbling experiences and it taught me a great deal of some of my own inner struggles at the time.
Not taking yourself so seriously helps a great deal to keep your head out of your behind. Besides, in retrospect, no one cared that we were losing.
Each couple evidently had their own issues; issues that they laughed about together and took in stride. Lesson learned, and I’m a better man for it.

It’s not going to be tiring; it’s going to be fun
Change the way of your thinking, by quitting laziness doesn’t mean that you would be toiling hard day and night and there will be no time-out. No, it’s not so, trust me because of your laziness that are lots of things loaded with great fun with whom you have deprived yourself. Take it as fun so you can get started.

Begin with baby steps
For breaking up the practice of being sluggish you can’t bring a revolution in you, it takes time and to make it easier for you, baby steps are needed to take. If morning walk horrifies you then no problem don’t spend half an hour on it, don’t want to run? Ok don’t do so, walk rather wander in the garden, look at the beautiful flowers, listen to the chirping of birds and come back that’s it. It’s the beginning after some days you won’t wonder you would walk and jog with great interest.

Take a small chunk of a big task.
If something huge needs to be completed then break it into tiny pieces, do it step-wise, one step at a time will make it handy for you and you won’t feel burden after completing the few steps rest will look simpler to you. Try it

Recharge your battery while working
Its true lazybones that you don’t have to work regularly in a robotic way, instead take it as you will be working in the intervals of a break, yes dear, after 40 minutes take a break because it’s time to recharge yourself, do what you like to do.

It’s time to turn the topsy-turvy into hunky-dory
It’s time to unclutter the clutter, play with the clutter around you, minimize what is so maximized, Makeover your room and see how it looks with a new look. Do the undone and see if it looks fantastic.
Believe me; you would experience a new you in you once you learn to get rid of laziness because laziness isn’t being comfortable, instead it is the highest degree of boredom so get rid of it.
