Gelato Latte Hot Chocolate

 

Cozy frog slippers? Check.
Comfy blanket? Check.
Cats? Check.
Heater on full force? Check.
Chunky sweater? Check.
Good book? Check.
Cup of the warmest and most delicious hot chocolate? CHECK!

This is my idea of a perfect cold night date with myself.
Gelato Latte Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate is a ultimate weakness of mine.  There’s something about it that can cheer someone up right away.  Maybe it’s the warm feeling on your hands.  Maybe it’s the memories of Mom making it for me when I came in after a long day of sledding.  Or maybe it’s just that smell of chocolate.   During the Winter hot chocolate becomes our #1 drink. After we come home from work, usually frozen, we’ll quickly make 2 nice hot cups of hot chocolate and sit in front of the heater.  For dessert, brownies are pushed to the side and hot chocolate is favored on chilly nights.  For a night by myself with a book or watching The Tudors (I’m obsessed) I’m going to choose a big mug of hot chocolate, along with a big handful of marshmallows.

Having fun with your house decor with color and toys!

“How many kids do you have?” might be a often asked question to strangers who enter our house.
My response “4 cats” and a smile.

What’s surrounding me right now?
I’m lying on a carpet. I have FiFi Bofinkles next to me who’s kissing up a storm to the side of my face.  I’m resting my elbows on a smiling snowman pillow. My cup of green tea has  Mr. Messy on it.  Above me is a robot, a lion, a alien and multiple organic shaped stuffed animals with great personalities.

I love my UPS man. I hope he’s reading this post because he really is the best. He waves at me in his truck if he sees me on the street.  He notices when I change the color of my hair.  He carries my litter and cat food actually inside my loft for me.  He is the best.  I want to bake him cookies.

Frozen Vegetable Recipes and Why Frozen Veggies Rule!

The coldness suddenly hit last weekend.  One week it was fine with a thin sweater, then suddenly it’s tights, long sweater, winter coat and hat.

One thing that comes with the Winter is lack of fresh fruits and vegetables.  For us, the garden will still be growing a few vegetables under greenhouses, but there will be no peas, no corn and no carrots.    Farmers markets will be closed, or only selling hearty greens.  Grocery stores will have vegetables, but they won’t taste fresh as they’ve been shipped and prices will raise.  You’ll suddenly see raspberries for $7 instead of the $1.50 you were paying in June.  Oh and corn on the cob?  If you’re in a cold location, good luck seeing it until next Summer.

So how do you get your vegetables during the Winter?  Here’s what I suggest, frozen vegetables!

Creamy Chicken and Noodles

CREAMY Chicken and Noodles is a easy casserole bake recipe that you can serve as a main or side dish.  It’s creamy sauce is made with cream of chicken and cream of broccoli soup and then poured over egg noodles and diced chicken. It’s my favorite comfort food dish!

These Creamy Chicken Noodles are a blue ribbon winner in my family’s heart. It’s perfect for a side dish, but it’s also perfect for a man dish. We love curling up with a bowl of this on a chilly night; it really hits the right spot, just like your fluffy slippers do to your toes!

Loft Living With Our New Reading Nook!

Do you remember a few weeks ago I posted about designing a reading nook?  Well it’s done and I couldn’t be more happy!  Thanks to everyone for suggestions on their favorite items to pick. It was  hard tossup on so many things, I think I changed my mind about the couch and the rug 88 times but finally decided!  So then I spent the next few weeks waiting for the delivery guys hoping they’d have my goodies!  The couch was last to arrive, but as soon as we unboxed it – I was set!  The reading nook was all ready to be snuggled into.

As a reminder here is what I wanted:
A cozy spot of our loft to curl up and disappear from work and life for a few minutes (or hours).
A place that I could read and drink many cups of tea.
With the winter coming up, somewhere extra cozy that was warm! Pillows and blankets!
Couch, Rug, Table, Light were the necessities. 
The rug needed to be super warm as we have concrete floors.  They are extremely cold in the winter. 

Are you ready? Here it is!   Not only am I love with my nook but you’ll see below all the cats love it too.   I’m constantly fighting with them to move over on the couch.  Isn’t it funny how a 8 pound cat can take up as much space (if not more) than a human?

Halloween in Disney World!

Happy Halloween gorgeous Ghouls!
Grab a bucket of candy, some apple cider and a black cat and let me take you on a journey to Disney World for Halloween!

A week ago, it was my birthday.  I’ve always wanted to go to Disney World for my birthday and Halloween so a couple weeks ago we booked the trip!  To say I was excited would be a understatement.  On my first trip to Disney a few years ago I stayed up late every night reading Disney forums and books, preparing myself.  For this one, I had the basics set but there would be a new celebration: Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a Halloween Party that takes place in the Magic Kingdom on special nights in September and October.  It’s a separate park ticket (Disney is great at making money!) so they close the park down for only the Halloween party guests! They also keep the park open late on these nights.  We were there until 12AM dancing and collecting candy.

Collecting candy? YES! During the Halloween Party there are specific dedicated spots (usually next to rides) that you can line up and trick or treat.   Noone is too old for this! Me, Matthew and 2 friends – all over the age of 30 – had a blast going from stop to stop.  When you get into the park they even give you own trick or treat bag.  If you fill it up, you can get a new one and keep on going!  I haven’t been trick or treating in many years so it was lots of fun to get my sweet loot!

Did I mention costumes?  You have to wear a costume!  Disney has some of the best dressed characters, so you need to go big! Although I felt like the majority of visitors don’t go all out (the majority don’t wear a costume! *GASP*) we had to!  My costume changed about a hour before we left for the airport, but thankfully I have a few clown costumes laying around.  Everyone has clown costumes ready to grab for special occasions, right?

So here we are, Mr & Mrs Clown.

Spooky Halloween Oreo Pudding

This is Halloween Week!

Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween! 

La la-la la, Halloween! Halloween! 

Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn’t you like to see something strange?

Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Halloween!

The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of the best soundtracks, right?  I’m glad you agree too!

October is my favorite month and even though I’m sad to see it go in just a few days, it ends with the best holiday!  What’s not to love about Halloween?  You get to dress up, you get to be imaginative, you get to decorate with pumpkins all over your house, and noone looks at you weird at a parade when you knock over a kid to get that lollipop they threw out of that Halloween float.  

I’ll be doing 2 fun Halloween posts this week – this delicious dessert and our Haloween adventure we had at Disney World just a few days ago! Stop by for that on Halloween!

Now on to the Halloween Oreo Pudding!  It’s made up of the 3 of the best words.
Halloween – yes.
Oreo – yes please.
Pudding – oh goodness yes.

Come Grocery Shopping With Me!

Do you like grocery shopping?  How often do you do it?  I’ve written before about how I do a fair amount of my shopping online so I wanted to introduce you guys to a new service called Farmigo which is a online farmers market that empowers families to eat better, bypassing the supermarket. 

Farmigo

We had a explosion of vegetables during the Summer months to the point that we don’t usually buy any produce for a few solid months.  I know not everyone has their own garden though so Farmigo is great for those that still fresh vegetables while supporting local farmers.     You’ll see below that I did use Farmigo to order meats, cheeses, breads and a couple vegetables we don’t grow.   Their selection is wide and varied on the season.  I think Farmigo is great because unlike a CSA where you get a box of surprises, here you get to pick what you want.  If you are meal planning for the week then you know you’ll need tomatoes, basil, corn, hot dogs and hot dog buns.   This won’t result in you getting a box full of 4 heads of lettuce and figuring out what the heck you’re going to do do with them.

20 Minute Pumpkin Butter Recipe

HEALTHY pumpkin butter made in 20 minutes.  Ingredients include pumpkin puree, apple cider, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and cinnamon.  Pumpkin Butter is delicious on waffles, pancakes, toast, as a fruit/veggie dip and more! 

Waffles have been a go to breakfast for us lately, because they are both delicious and quick.  With frozen waffles, you throw them in the toaster oven for 6 minutes and they’re done.  Then it’s up to you how you want to eat them  – do you use syrup? How about jelly?  How about butter?  How about.. pumpkin butter?  

Pumpkin Butter Recipe

If you want to make your own fresh pumpkin puree for this recipe you totally can. Here’s my tutorial I made for it last year.  To me, nothing tastes better than homemade pumpkin puree. If you are going to make your own, use a sugar pumpkin.  They give you the most taste.  Plus, they are real beauties.

Cute Halloween Treat Bag Ideas for Kids and Adults

This shop to make Halloween treat bags has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.  #SweetOrTreat #CollectiveBias

It’s almost Halloween – are you excited? I sure am.

My costume is ready, a giant pumpkin sits in our window lit up for Brooklyn, bite size chocolates sit on a table asking me to eat them and my Halloween treat bags are made for friends!  I know Halloween is usually set aside for kids, but as a Halloween loving adult, I know there are lots of us that still love Halloween even though we’re over the age of 15.   There’s something great about Halloween, maybe it’s the reason to be creative with costumes, maybe it’s spooky ghosts and pumpkins, maybe it’s decorating your house with orange, maybe it’s pumpkin baking season, maybe it’s the candy or maybe it’s just the memories of being a kid and going door to door to fill up your treat bag.

For Halloween this year I’ll be bringing treat bags to our studio space to give it to our friends there.  No matter the age, when someone gets a bag full of sweets and toys, it will make them smile.    While looking for treat bags, nothing really stuck out to me, so I decided I was going to make my own to stuff Skittles, Starburst, stickers and pencils in!

How to Dehydrate Cherry Tomatoes

Step by step instructions on how to dehydrate cherry tomatoes!

In my fun week of acting like a mad scientist in the kitchen (hello dried cantaloupe chips!), throwing vegetables and fruits in the food dehydrator asking the question “How will this taste dried” I had to try tomatoes.  With the amount of tomatoes we were harvesting and by the amount of sauces I already have made, I was dying to do something else with them.  How about dehydrated tomatoes to snack on?

We Grew Black and Yellow Beans!

The title says it all… we grew black and yellow beans this year!

In the past we didn’t have a bunch of success with bush beans in our 4×4 boxes so we didn’t have a lot of positive vibes, but something changed from that year to this year, because now those boxes are full of happy growing beans!  Next year we’ll be filing those boxes full of beans from Spring to Fall… I can’t wait!

This year we decided to give black beans and yellow eye beans a shot.    We planted the seeds on June 26 directly in the soil and we picked them on September 11.  From there, some were dry already while some others needed a additional 2 weeks to dry.

Let’s go on a picture journey, ok?

Wednesday Chit Chat & Some Favorite Things

Hi Friends,

It’s another Wednesday.  How are you doing?

Are you ready for Fall? Do you have your pumpkins already?  Are you all decorated for Halloween? Even though it’s my favorite holiday, I’m slacking a bit.  I’ve brought out a few of the Halloween ghosts and pumpkins, but there’s multiple boxes I need to get out from the loft to really get our place in Halloween shape.  Let the Halloween decorating begin!
101_4465

Speaking of Halloween, are you dressing up this year? There is only one answer for this.  Yes!  I think I’m recycling a costume this year, but updating some of it, so I hope that counts as acceptable! My birthday is a few days before Halloween so we’re going on a birthday/Halloween vacation to Disney World. If you know me then you know my love for Disney is extremely strong… so to be celebrating happy day and trick or treating at Disney makes me so excited I will probably cry while doing it!
Speaking of, our Disney Magic Bands came in the mail…guess who is totally decorating hers with pumpkins? Yup!

Oh you slow cooked tacos with tomatillo salsa roja.

How many ways do I love you?  Many.

I made these last week.  We already had them twice.  They are already being requested a 3rd time.  They are out of this world tasty.

What makes them that special?  They are slow cooked, they are made with fresh ingredients and they have that authentic taste.   Yeah, they are really good.

For this recipe it’s full of fresh ingredients, down to the salsa which is made from just picked tomatillos, so let’s get started!

Salsa Verde Tacos

 The salsa is a mixture of salsa verde + red mexican sauce.  For the salsa verde I use my favorite recipe (found here) but I cut it in half.  If you can’t make it homemade, just buy a jar of it.

To give it a little bit of a extra kick I like to add green pickled jalapeno peppers to the slow cooker.  Once slow cooked the pickled flavor isn’t strong, but instead it’s more about the spice of the jalapenos.

When it’s almost ready for dinner time, start preparing your toppings and shells. I like to use tostadas.  Tostadas are basically a flat taco shell.  They are made with corn and extra crunchy. I can usually find a bag of 25 at the bodega for less than $2 so it’s also a steal.

Who Else Needs Some Tea To Battle a Cold?

 

Sniffle Sniffle.  Sneeze.  Please don’t be alarmed, you can stay in this thread.  I won’t get you sick.  I promise.  Well I can’t promise, but I shouldn’t get you sick.  I mean there are screens between us, that will protect you, right?  You might have read in last week’s post I was feeling a cold coming on.   A few days later and I thought I was feeling better, I was able to eat a entire bowl of soup!  And then suddenly on Saturday I started to feel it again.  The sniffles were in high gear and both my ears started hurting. The one hurts so bad that it sometimes wakes me up in the middle of the night.  It’s quite a bummer.    So want to have some tea with me to discuss how much you hate Fall time colds? There’s a few reasons why colds aren’t cool.  Read More

Wednesday Chit Chat – How Are You?

I used to love these weekly “how are you posts” but I fell off the wagon a bit.  But now I’m back and I’m ready to chat.  So how are you doing? How’s your family? How’s your cats? How’s your job?  How’s the weather?  Are you looking forward to the holidays?

I know, that’s lots of questions.  Take your time answering them.

I guess I’ll answer them too.

How am I doing?  
I’m caught a bug. No, not a cute little garden bug.  This is a sneezy, sniffly, ear ringing (I sound like a commercial) bug.  We’ve had a long week of working and as sometimes happens the day after nonstop work the body needs to crash.  My body crashed straight into bed.  I’ve been sniffling so much I’m sure I annoy everyone in our office (I’m sorry!).  Also I can’t really eat anything so I’ve been living on tea, juice and broth (but sometimes that grosses me out too).   Whenever anyone eats in front of me I have to go to the other room.  The smells! AGH!    Hopefully this will clear up in a few days… until then I’ll be moping around.
