Maple Syrup Taffy Fun Frozen Activity

Maple Syrup Taffy

Maple Syrup Taffy

 

 

I am sure we are all tired of talking about or hearing about how cold it is and how frozen we all feel. I say make the best of it! I found this super fun and delish science experiment that is simple for everyone…as long as your stove is currently working.
All you have to do is slowly heat up maple syrup and stir it slowly until it is warm almost boiling but you don’t want to burn it. Once the syrup is ready go outside and find fresh clean snow and pour the syrup in any shape you want. I saw some photos where people put popsicle sticks in the snow as well so they could easily remove it and have pops!
You can make any shape you want and share it with your friends! You could even heat up some chocolate or caramel and do the same to make pops even combine all 3!

Happy Holiday Snow Globes

Happy Holiday Snow Globes

Happy Holiday Snow Globes

I really like giving handmade gifts, they are much more special than anything you can buy. This season is perfect for handmade gifting as most people usually have a long list to get for! You can usually give handmade gifts to teachers, co-workers, friends, neighbors, friends and family members!. I have been seeing DIY snow globes and ornaments all over the place lately even in jewelry. I thought this was the perfect gift idea because you can totally personalize the gift. You can put a little something extra in there that is perfect for the receiver. I changed a few things around but found this super cute project here if you want the original project.

Supplies:
Empty baby food jars
Mini fake trees (or any other decorations you might be able to use)
Goo Gone or Rubbing Alcohol
Glycerin
Glass and Bead glue or Epoxy
Glitter
Distilled water

Directions:
1. Remove the labels off the jars and clean off the glue with Goo Gone. You can also rubbing alcohol as well.
2. Spray paint the lids gold {or desired color}.
3. Put a little glue on both the inside of the lid and the bottom of the fake tree. Allow to dry for 1-2 minutes and then press the tree onto the lid.
4. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
4. Add about 1 teaspoon of glitter into each jar.
5. Fill with distilled water and add 5 drops of Glycerin. {5 drops seemed to work the best.} Screw the lid {with the tree} onto the top and you’ve got yourself the cutest mini snow globe ever!

New Twist On Tuna & Pasta

Tuna & Pasta With Cannellini

 

I love tuna and pasta. It was one of my favorites growing up. There wasn’t a thing my mother couldn’t do with it. I eat it pretty regularly and it happens to even be one of my favorites to eat a sushi as well. I don’t want my tuna recipes to get stale or boring so I am always looking for ways to change things up. I will admit this recipe came at a time I didn’t have much in the kitchen and was too lazy to go to the store. That being said it was one of the most delish made up concoctions I have ever made!!

Ingredients:
2 cans Tuna
1/3 organic chopped yellow onion
1/2 can organic cream of mushroom soup
1/4-1/2 can organic cannellini beans (depending on preference)
1/2 table spoon of Brummel and brown
1/2 cup organic broccoli (or any green veggie you prefer i.e. peas spinach)
1lb organic pasta (any kind you prefer)
organic lemon juice
organic red pepper flakes
minced organic garlic
black pepper
organic fresh parsley

Directions:

1. Boil water for pasta.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
3. Grease glass baking dish (or any baking dish you prefer)
4. Mix the tuna, cream of mushroom, beans, veggies, garlic, red pepper, lemon juice, parsley, onion and any other spices you prefer together first in the baking dish and let sit (feel free to add cheese too because it is just plain delish.)
5. When pasta is finished cooking, drain and add that to the ingredients in the baking dish.
6. Cover the top of the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for approximately 30mins.
7. After 30mins remove the aluminum cover and bake for another 10 mins or until the top is light brown.
8. Let cool and serve!

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Not So Latte

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Not So Latte

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Not So Latte

 

 

Lately everyone has been drinking fall spiced coffees and other drinks to celebrate the new cooler season. I have been noticing when I try said drinks they taste almost like perfume or potpourri! I sure don’t want to drink that so this morning it occurred to me that I have all of the accoutrement to make a spiced coffee of my own. How difficult could it be really? I am normally a black coffee drinker so an actual “latte” seems too milky to me usually unless I am drinking the coffee as a dessert or some sort of treat. This AM’s coffee turned out better than I even thought and only took me a few minutes to make.

Ingredients:

Organic Coffee (I used a light coffee with no particular flavor but if you already have a flavored coffee that would probably add to the mix nicely)
Organic Cinnamon
Organic Sugar
Organic Pumpkin Spice
Organic Honey
Organic No Fat Milk

Directions:

1. Brew your coffee as you normally do.

2. Once in your cup add the cinnamon, sugar, honey, pumpkin spice and milk to taste.

3. Stir and serve!
