If there's one thing that most of the children in my life love, it's to play with tactile stuff you can eat! My kiddo built parks out of broccoli and carrots when as a child was little and to this day my teen will shape anything out of playdough with my two-year-old niece. So I thought it would be really fun to try some chocolate playdough for their dessert tomorrow when my niece comes over for the day!
If you just want something green this St. Patrick's Day, you won't have to work very hard. You can always just get some green macrarons, a Shamrock shake or some of that terrible green popcorn that so many grocery stores sell. But if you want to whip up a little something special to celebrate with friends and family, there are lots of fun things you can make, too.
There are endless ideas for a healthier-for-you ice cream. Many people like to freeze grapes and pop them, while others freeze and mash up bananas for "ice cream." Then, of course, there are various custards and yogurts made with healthier alternatives, depending on what healthier means for your body type and unique nutritional needs.
If you've never made a fat bomb, you're in for a treat: they're quick, easy and delicious. While they might seem daughting because they are full of fat and meant to keep you full on a ketogenic way of life, you can always modify them to work with your own lifestyle. The best thing about fat bombs is that they essentially all follow the same pattern: you blend all of their ingredients together, pour them in bite-sized molds and freeze them. In a few hours, they're ready!
Are you a fan of cakes made in mugs? How about quick fat bombs, cheesecakes and other fast desserts? If so, you're like me, so welcome. I LOVE sweets, but I don't love the carbs or calories, not to mention the time it takes to put many sweet dishes together. So when I read about these blender cupcakes that are not only easy to make but also keto-friendly, I figured why not try them?
Having your cake, eating it and not suffering from the caloric consequences might seem like a tall order, but many companies are selling dessert teas now that make it much more possible. For a fraction of the sugar and calories, depending on how you prepare it, you can enjoy favorite treats like vanilla macaroons or lemon loaf in a cup. Hot or iced, it's totally up to you!
Winter isn't usually thought of as prime wedding season, but winter weddings can be some of the most beautiful celebrations of all, especially with the ice sculptures and wintry color schemes. Winter wedding cakes are especially gorgeous, with sprigs of greenery, simple white flowers and pretty berries. The bursts of summer color may not be present, but the stark contrast of vibrant berries and foliage against a clean winter layer cake can be just as striking.
What is it about camping that makes every bite taste better? I think a plain baloney sandwich is amazing when I'm camping! It's probably because we work so hard all day just to, you know, exist, so you're just hungrier. Camping desserts are even more scrumptious! Have you ever had Dutch oven peach cobbler? Oh my...
The other day, we stopped by a local bakery to get my mom a birthday cake she specifically wanted from that bakery. We've passed it a million times and never stopped. I don't know why; I guess it's just more convenient to grab something at Target for my daughter's co-op snack while we're already buying other things than make an additional stop.
Anytime I smell coconut, I get a craving for my favorite coffee, which is coconut oil with cinnamon and cream. YUM. Cinnamon is my favorite sweet these days, which is weird since I normally only like it during the holidays. I've come across some really yummy cinnamon recipes and wanted to share some with you.
