Blood Orange Creamsicles: Refreshing and Sophisticated Orange juice and dairy products don’t sound like a dream pairing, but the success of the Creamsicle and Dreamsicle proves otherwise. Also, I think Orange Julius might involve dairy, too (but I haven’t lived near an Orange Julius since I was six and my memories from that time in my life aren’t always totally reliable). If regular old oranges go well with frozen dairy desserts, blood oranges, with their sweeter flavor and notes of raspberry, are even better. These blood orange ice pops pair blood orange with yogurt for a sweet, smooth, and refreshing treat perfect for a hot day. Blood Orange Creamsiclesmakes twelve 5 oz. creamsicles 2 cups fresh squeezed blood orange juice (6 – 8 medium, or sub in half blood orange and half orange juice) 2 cup plain yogurt 1 tablespoon blood orange zest 1/3 cup (or more, depending on the tartness of the oranges) honey 1 teaspoon vanilla extract pinch salt In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt into the juice until smooth.

Slutty Brownies Now I don’t want to over sell this, so I’m going to be conservative and simply say, that these are… The Best Brownies In The WORLD. I know, big statement. They’re called Slutty Brownies because they’re oh so easy, and more than a little bit filthy. They’re best served warm from the oven, with good quality vanilla ice cream (devastatingly I didn’t have any in the freezer this time, so I guess I’ll just have to make them again). They take about 45mins to make, including baking time. The ultimate comfort food, whipped up within the hour. You will need… 1 Box of cookie mix, 1 Box of brownie mix, 2 Eggs, 2 Packs of Oreos (double stuffed ones are even better if you can find them) Some oil & your favourite ice-cream (optional) Preheat your oven to 350F, 180C, gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper. Squidge (technical term) the cookie dough into a lined baking tray, until it covers the bottom. Cover this layer with your Oreos. Mix up your brownie batter. & pour over your Oreos. Bake for 30mins.

Fat Free Shrimp Salsa This is one of my all time favourite dips. Whenever the girls come over for a movie session it's first on their list of requests (the second is anything featuring Ryan Gosling, but come on... he is a dream boat). It's jam packed with flavour, but only has around 100 calories per serving. The boys love it too because it's salty, spicy & tastes like something you'd have on a beach in Mexico. To make enough for 4 people, you'll need: 300grams (12oz) Cooked & peeled king prawns, About 25 Fresh, plump cherry tomatoes, 1 Red onion, 3 heaped tbsp Jalapenos (or more if you like it firey), 1 handful Fresh coriander (cilantro), Juice of 1 1/2 limes Sprinkle of rock salt Ok, now the directions for this recipe are pretty complex, so brace yourself... Great for a drinks party, nibbles before dinner or just a night in with a movie.

creamy lemon popsicles So, my mom just bought her first jar of coconut oil this month, and I have had a blast (a little too enthusiastically) explaining the hundreds of ways that you can use it. I mean, just yesterday we had a very deep conversation about oil pulling as I was walking through the produce section at Costco. No one gave me weird looks at all… But amongst the thousands of recipes out there using coconut oil, I think I have discovered a new favorite. Did it ever work. :) Read more I’ve always said that I like a good balance of cooking and baking in my life. That recipe is coming on the blog tomorrow. It’s fairly rare that I have a bag of self-rising flour sitting in my pantry, partly because it doesn’t stay fresh as long with that baking powder mixed in. So bookmark this recipe if you ever need it for the future. Read more Happy day, friends! I hope this finds you well, wherever you may be.

homemade pop tarts I never had a Pop-Tart until college. I realize that for some people this may cause a shocked reaction on par with my husband’s the time I told him I’ve never watched Goonies before (or Jacob’s, upon discovering the internet). Obviously I grew up under a rock, right? Thus, given my proximity to concrete-like materials you’d think I have been better prepared for the texture of the one I purchased from the vending machine in the basement of my freshman dorm (not at 4 a.m. or anything, either, nope, not this angel!). I understand that if I had toasted it, my experience might have been better. I can’t believe I waited so long to make these. Most recipes I have come across use a pie dough for the pastry but I was really stuck on getting a crust that was a little more sturdy — one with an egg. One year ago: Black Bread Homemade Pop Tarts Adapted from King Arthur Flour 1 additional large egg (to brush on pastry) To make cinnamon filling: Whisk together the sugar, cinnamon, and flour.

lollies - a little ART CANT HURT - StumbleUpon a perfect rainy day thing to do! the colors make any day better! how to make LOLLIESyou will need: jolly ranchers, candy sticks, parchment paper, foil & a cookie sheet 1) lay a piece of foil on cookie sheet. cover foil with a piece of parchment paper.2) unwrap candies and place side by side on parchment paper in your choice of color & flavor combinations. use three candies together for extra large lollies, and only two candies together for regular lollies.3) heat candies in oven for about 5 minutes at 200 degrees. keep a close eye on the candies and take them out as soon as they've barely melted together. if you leave them in too long they will melt too much and you won't be able to put a stick into the lollie. alter the cook time accordingly.4) carefully take cookie sheet out of oven. immediately lay candy sticks into place on melted candies. slowly twirl in melted candy to coat the stick and so it will hold in the lollie. they're hot!

Epic Fish Tacos Every night this week, I have dreamt I was on a beach. White sands, clear blue water, frozen margaritas and the ultimate holiday luxury… fish tacos. There is honestly nothing better than sitting down to a vast table of salty, crunchy, gooey, citrusy fish tacos. Before retiring for a long snooze in the sun.I first discovered them on a trip to Harbour Island earlier this year and have been hooked ever since. Now, seeing we can't all go to the beach, I thought I'd bring the beach to us! This recipe may sound like it takes a lot of work, but honestly it really doesn't and if you're cooking this for someone special, you are defiantly getting lucky tonight! Shopping list- 4 small filets white fish coriander (cilantro) garlic 2 limes Rock salt 1 avocado 1 red onion pea shoots/watercress cherry tomatoes tortilla wraps (nice small ones) This recipe serves 2, but you can easily multiply it to feed friends & family too. If you're not sure what to buy, ask the fishmonger for a meaty, firm white fish.
