Um, please muffle all outraged screams until you have tried this. Along with the whiskey are some sweet cherries, tart apples and a lime to create a popsicle that will assist you with obtaining your daily fruit serving.

Snickerdoodle Muffins Snickerdoodle Muffins I have been obsessed with Pinterest lately! Pinning this and that all while trying not to drool all over my computer. While I like pinning lots of different things, as you can imagine, I love pinning recipes. A picture of snickerdoodle muffins kept popping up all over my Pinterest page just begging me to make them. I really need to stop looking at Pinterest after dinner! I found using an ice cream scooper with a release lever the easiest way to scoop out the batter. After the ball of dough is completely covered in cinnamon and sugar just plop it into the muffin liner and bake! Delicious muffins that combines the best of a snickerdoodle cookie with the comfort of a warm muffin, perfect for breakfast or dessert! Yield: 16 muffins Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 18 minutes Ingredients: For the Topping: 2/3 cup sugar 2 tablespoons cinnamon Directions: Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Ice lolly recipes : Ice lolly cocktails : Ice pops : Healthy ice pop This week, I have developed a bit of an unhealthy magnum obsession. It has happened before, I buy a mini magnum box and slowly work my way through them, whether on the sofa with a good episode of Greys Anatomy, or simply for lunch if there’s nothing else in the house (like yesterday for example.) This got me thinking, there must be healthier and DIY options for frozen treats, particularly if any sunny weather makes an appearance… (For the record if you’re wondering why I’m writing about frozen food in the middle of the worst summer ever here in the UK:a. I can’t refrain from doing summer stuff forever andb. it was pleasantly warm and humid here yesterday, although not exactly sunny.) There’s even the grown up option of cocktail ice pops or gourmet recipes. So here are a few recipes that tickled my fancy… Have you made DIY ice lollys? Love, Rebecca xo PS. from Amazon.

The 20 Best Movie Drinking Games It's St Patrick's Day, and no doubt the pressure is on to head downtown for a few jars this evening (or, if you're a student, when doors open). For the budding film fanatic, though, that cuts into viewing time, so here's the ideal way to keep inebriates and cinephiles alike happy. We've compiled some of the best movie drinking games from the collective wisdom of web-based boozers, as well as adding a few on our own. Sci-fi, gangster flicks, comedies and thrillers, classics and modern hits are all catered for. All of these will get you wasted while doing the public service of keeping you off the streets. Please drink responsibly. The Shining Lazydork is the Wikipedia of movie drinking games, a dedicated resource with hundreds of titles available, including their take on The Shining. Choosing Stanley Kubrick's chiller feels wrong, somehow - after all, it's the tale of an alcoholic falling off the wagon and trying to murder his family.

Euclideon promises unlimited graphical detail Are Euclideon's promises the future of graphics or vapourware? Small Australian tech company Euclideon has released a new demo trailer for its graphics technology Unlimited Detail, which promises to ditch the dependency on polygons in games in favour of millions of cloud point technology. This should create richer game worlds that look more realistic, says Euclideon. The problem with polygons (as the video below brilliantly highlights) is that they’re computationally expensive and don’t give a realistic look when you look closely. ‘There is a better way to do graphics, which is used in medicine and the sciences, and that is to make everything out of tiny little atoms instead of flat panels [polygons]. However, Euclideon has found a way to circumvent the processing problem, allowing it to create ‘unlimited little 3D atoms in real-time.’ The video includes plenty of comparisons between game worlds created with polygons and Euclideon’s demo island that uses its Unlimited Detail technology.

Homemade Graham Crackers I ventured into crackers this weekend. Golden brown graham crackers. Small ones of course. These are only about 2 inches square. Combine flour, dark brown sugar, baking soda and salt and you’re on your way. Okay that was the overview version. It’s fun to make homemade versions of things I would typically only think of buying. After the dough was chilled and rolled, I roughly measured out 2-inch square cracker shapes, leaving a space between each square. You’ll want to remove the extra dough (and reuse the scraps) to make sure the crackers don’t bake into each other. That would be ugly. You can use a wooden skewer to press along the center of each cracker and also to poke decorative holes. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, too before baking. Then, when baked and cooled, you can snap them in half just like the larger version you’re used to. Too cute. But, I took these a step farther. Yeah, I broke out the fondant. Weird, right? I mean fondant doesn’t go with graham crackers at all. Or a lot silly.

Guest Post: Blueberry Lavender Vanilla Ice Cream – Vegan, Gluten-free, Refined Sugar-free Today’s recipe comes from the lovely Beth Manos Brickey of the blog Tasty Yummies! Read on for a mouth-watering and refreshing summer recipe that can be used to make ice cream or popsicles! WAIT….before you pass by this recipe without a second glance, because you don’t have an ice cream maker, know that this ice cream can easily be made into delicious homemade Blueberry Lavender Vanilla Pops using one of those handy dandy popsicle molds that you can grab for a few dollars almost anywhere!

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes Recipe As I mentioned on Friday, I have been doing some experimentation with the beer and chocolate combination. The Guinness-chocolate ice cream that I made totally kicked butt, so I couldn’t wait to see how I liked beer and chocolate in my cake. The answer? I like it, a whole heck of a lot. This was my first time doing Guinness-chocolate cakes, and I was totally optimistic that I would love it, and I was definitely right. These cupcakes are fashioned after the popular drink that consists of a shot of Baileys Irish Cream and Irish whiskey dropped into a pint of Guinness. These cupcakes consist of a Guinness-chocolate cake base, which has a wonderful depth of flavor and is also supremely moist. While you can’t really taste the beer in the cupcakes (it serves as more of a flavor enhancer for the chocolate), you can definitely taste the alcohol in the filling and the frosting. I think I need to start converting more drinks into baked goods, this was too much fun (and way delicious!).

cheesy, oozy guacamole bean dip I first had this at a party about 10 years ago. That recipe was my inspiration for this healthier version. We like to make this for football games.

Serves 8 Ingredients 1 (16-ounce) can refried beans3 large avocados3 tablespoons fresh lime juice2 (8-ounce) containers nondairy sour cream1 packet taco seasoning (I use Bearitos, but if you are avoiding all white sugar, make your own mix with chili powder, ground cumin, onion powder, hot paprika or cayenne, and salt)1/2 cup diced mild green chiles, drained1/2 cup sliced black olives, or more if you like 5 tomatoes, chopped2 cups shredded vegan Cheddar cheese Steps Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Adult Desserts: Strawberry-Watermelon Popsicles & Champagne : Zomppa – International Food Magazine Remember popsicles? When was the last time you had a popsicle? One of those sticky, succulent, sweet and refreshing icons most generally associated with summertime heat and good times? My sister and I had a popsicle at least once a day during the summer. With the cacophonous sounds of crickets chirping in our backyard and the hazy orange-red sun settling into the horizon, my sister and I would steadily slurp on our sticky-sweet treats, hoping we could catch the popsicle drips before they oozed all over our chins and palms. Sigh. At some point, I stopped eating/enjoying a good old-fashioned popsicle. It was then that I reluctantly understood that sucking on a popsicle as a full grown adult was slightly inappropriate…maybe even a little obscene. How did this happen?? When did it become inappropriate for adults to suck on popsicles? Strawberry-Watermelon Popsicles in Champagne 1 pint of strawberries ½ a watermelon 1 Bottle of Champagne (optional) Directions:
