PIRI PIRI HEMP HEARTS

PIRI PIRI HEMP HEARTS

I’ve been eating hemp hearts for a while now. They are super nutritious and a great source of protein as well as vitamin E and minerals, such as phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, and zinc. I decided to jazz them up with a 

GINGER ICE CREAM SANDWICHES

My ginger ice cream sandwiches are a great treat for the summer. I buy ginger snap cookies and use my ginger ice cream. This can all be store bought and assembled at home, but if you are up for making your own ice cream, I 

SUGAR-FREE MERINGUES

SUGAR-FREE MERINGUES

These are a nice sugar free option for anyone who loves meringues. I used monk fruit sugar to make the meringue and it works. Xylitol also works well with this recipe. You do get that cool sugar alcohol taste, but it’s not too bad and

WHITE CHOCOLATE COVERED PRETZELS

WHITE CHOCOLATE COVERED PRETZELS

These pretzels have become a yearly treat. I have made them every Christmas for the past few years. They are a hit with guests and as presents. There’s something about that sweet and salty bite that makes them perfect. Make a lot of them…they are 

PEPPERMINT BARK

PEPPERMINT BARK

I love the Williams Sonoma Peppermint Bark that comes out every Christmas, but I don’t love the price. I feel it’s really expensive. So I tried to make my own and it turned out great. I actually prefer mine because I load it with crushed
