greatest thing ever created?
Gems are truly truly outrageous, even more so when they satisfy not only your eye, but your sweet tooth, too. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and glitter is a crafty girl’s ultimate go-to. There’s simply no such thing as too much sparkle, so dress up your desserts and wow the guests at your next fancy fete with a decadent and elegantly edible DIY.
To create: dust candy mold with different shades of edible glitter, using a clean paint brush. It magically sticks to all sides! Melt white chocolate following the package’s specific directions. Use a small spoon to pour the melted white chocolate into the mold. Place the filled mold into the refrigerator for at least a few hours until set completely. Once hardened, carefully remove from the mold. You may want to add a little extra hint of glitter on the bottoms or on sides.

What is overnight oats?
Overnight oats (OO) is basically oats soaked in the liquid of your choice. Either milk or yogurt, but you can always experiment with other kinds. It is often chilled overnight (hence the name) and usually left uncooked. However you can heat it up if you prefer to. It is perfect for days when you are in a rush to make breakfast, just make it in a jar the day before and it’s ready to go the next day.
You can add any kinds of toppings you want to it. You can add fresh fruits, nuts, dried fruits, peanut butter, etc. Many people also add chia seeds to the overnight oats. Be adventurous and try new additions, you might be pleasantly surprised!
This is also good to put together with your kids, let them play around with their favorite toppings and learn more about fruits and nuts, etc. There’s no or minimal cooking involved, so it’s safe for them as well.

Winter sore throat “tea”- In a jar combine lemon slices, organic honey and sliced ginger. Close jar and put it in the fridge, it will form into a “jelly”. To serve- spoon jelly into mug and pour boiling water over it. Store in fridge 2-3 months.
Not winter yet. But I get sore throats a lot and I like home remedies and kitchen witchery.
Ooh. I like this.
I wouldn’t necessarily call this a tea, per se, but it IS an interesting idea… especially for someone like me, who gets sore throats rather frequently in the winter months.
i am going to do this. i get sore throats from dry air the whole time the furnace is on.
will someone come over and do exactly this with me??
1/2 cup butter
1/2 whole milk
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup Nutella
2 1/2 cups – 2 3/4 cups confectioner’s sugar
Grease an 8×8 pan. Place the confectioner’s sugar in a mixing bowl and set aside.
Melt butter over medium low heat. Add the milk and light brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat and then boil for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat and quickly add the vanilla and Nutella. Stir until the Nutella is melted.
Carefully pour the hot Nutella mixture over the confectioner’s sugar and mix quickly until completely combined. Once everything comes together, it will set pretty fast. Pour/scoop the fudge into your greased 8×8 pan. Press the fudge into the pan, if needed. Chill for 2 hours.
*One of my personal favorites. The fudge does turn out a bit gooey in consistancy (which is how I like mine) but if you prefer it a little more hard and solid try adding a little bit more powdered sugar.
Pink Lemonade Pie
- 4 cups frozen strawberries, thawed
- 1 cup fresh pineapple
- 1 cup fresh pitted cherries
- 2 fresh peaches
- 32 oz. real fruit juice (pick your flavor, I loved the pineapple-coconut one!)
- 4 liters club soda
- stevia to taste
grab a big bowl and a fine colander.
Dump whatever fruit you have ready in the blender with about half of the juice.
Blend enough that there are still a few chunks but it’s mostly pureed.
Empty the blender into the colander over the bowl.
Repeat until all of the fruit is processed.
Using a wooden spoon stir the fruit mixture until all that’s left in the colander is the pulp from the fruit.
Add the remainder of the fruit juice.
2 liters of club soda for half of the fruit concentrate, and then sweeten with stevia to taste.

Harry Potter Treats
Yer a wizard Amanda. The four words that were never once said to me *sadness*. However, we can make up for that! Imagine my immense joy at having found recipes straight from Hogwarts, Hogsmeade and Honeydukes. I might have squealed a bit. From Acid Pops to Chocolate Frogs to Licorice Wands to Cockroach Clusters to Butterbeer and BUTTERBEER CUPCAKES. Wut. And as an added bonus some Caldron Cakes if you ever feel like taking a Potions class. It’s okay to cry; I know how you feel. I’m dying to make these too. You can thank me later.
