Its also a baking-free gift that your neighbors and friends will enjoy. I like to include the directions for use and a gift tag. Wrap some ribbon and a jingle ball and you have a . . .
I don't think I have ever met anyone that really despised a slush. I mean really? Think about it? Who has ever said? 'Oh Nasty! Is that a slushie?'

I really love coconut. I love recipes with coconut in them, and I love the smell of coconut. So when a local tea shop started serving coconut hot cocoa I was all over it. Cafe Quality Made At Home I thought I could pretty easily re-create that hot chocolate at home, and I was right! I started with canned coconut milk. You can opt for the coconut milk in a carton, but I think the canned has a little stronger coconut flavor. I added in some cows milk, and also some chocolate! I went . . .
One foggy Christmas party my Aunt served me a hot tasty drink that totally took me by surprise. I don't know what I was expecting but THIS was awesome. We were at a family party, all sitting around enjoying each other's company drinking "Russian Tea." That was what she had for its name. I have altered the name to spiced orange cider. It's a title that more accurately describes this drink- warm and cozy. I love to make this in the cold fall and winter months. We serve it breakfast with eggs . . .

Today I want to chat about WATER! The source of life. I am actually a water lover. I enjoy a nice big glass of ice water almost as much as a nice big glass of Diet Coke. But let's face it - sometimes it gets boring. Flavored sparkling water is a big trend right now, but I'm here to tell you that making your own still, infused water is just as good, if not better than those expensive canned waters. Reduce Single-Use Plastic Bottle Waste Today we've teamed up with Dopper to bring water . . .
