Limoncello Recipe
Limoncello While searching for a good recipe for Limoncello, I found a lot of conflicting information. Some recipes use vodka, others use grain alcohol (without specifying the potency, which varies) and others even used rum! So I started with the premise that grain alcohol will extract the most lemon oil and flavor from lemon zest. Limoncello 3 pounds lemons, preferably organic. 16 oz. grain alcohol, 190 proof (I use Everclear) Wash the lemons thoroughly in warm water, and rinse well. On the 3rd day: 4 cups sugar 4 cups (=32 oz.) water 1/2 cup (=4 oz.) lemon juice Combine the sugar and water in a non-reactive saucepan (i.e., stainless steel, or a pan lined with enamel - not aluminum or cast iron). Clemencello My latest discovery! Use the recipe for Limoncello above, but put the grain alcohol into a jar and add the zest of the clementines as you eat them, and swirl the jar daily.

Drunken Coffee Jello Squares OK, kids: This is coffee. In solid form. It’s been sweetened with condensed milk and booze-ified with a healthy dose of Kahlua—then rubberized into a blissful, cocktail-hour finger food thanks to the magic of gelatin. (If you know me, you know how much I love coffee, so you can imagine how excited I was when I came across the recipe.) Now, you have to like Jello, or Jello-like food, for this to work. Huge thanks to The Food Librarian for sharing their deliciousness. (If you haven’t checked out the Food Librarian’s blog, you should. So, years ago, I had several meals that ended with Classic American Jello Mold Torture. This is not that jello. This jello is the short and stout cousin of Vietnamese iced coffee, that fabulous concoction of espresso and condensed milk. This is jello that you could serve to your foodie friends. This stuff is silly. The short version of the recipe goes like this Bloom the gelatin (i.e. mix it together with water) for about 10 minutes. That’s it. Brew the coffee

Naughty Shirley Temple Jello Shots Ingredients: Cherry jelly powder Orange jelly powder Maraschino cherries with stems* Lemon lime pop Vodka Grenadine (optional) Mix 1 cup of boiling water with the cherry jelly powder. Stir until completely dissolved. Add 1/2 cup cold vodka, 1/2 cup cold water and a bit of grenadine (grenadine optional). Cut the bottoms off of the cherries so they stand up and place one in each muffin cup. Mix 3/4 cup of boiling water with the orange jelly powder. To easily remove the jello shots from the muffin tin warm up the bottom of the tin by setting it in warm water. Enjoy watching your friends attempt to tie the stems with their tongues! *Maraschino cherries with stems are really hard to find in Ontario, I finally got mine from Bulk Barn but they told me they don't always carry them so be sure to call in advance.

How-To: Henna Tattoos Henna tattoos are perfect for summertime. They are natural, they are beautiful, and they are temporary! Because one batch of henna goes a long way, henna tattoos are a great activity for parties and are especially fun for kids at a sleep over. I tend to give them as part of celebrations, say at a baby shower or bachelorette party, but I also love giving them to people who need some love and healing. Materials for the Henna Paste: Henna powder, 1/4 cup Tea, strongly brewed, 2-3 tablespoons 1 Lemon Eucalyptus Oil, 3-5 drops Materials for Applying the Tattoo: Squeeze bottle Various tips Straight pin Q-tips Cotton ballls Lemon Sugar Materials to Remove the Paste: Olive Oil Cotton balls Step 1: Check your henna for any sticks or large bits of plant matter. Step 2: Scrub the hand that is going to get the tattoo to remove any oils from the skin before you start. While traditional henna patterns are very busy, the best thing to do is keep it simple!

Not so much a recipe… More of a “why have I not been doing this for years?” post. Remember back when I made caramel sauce? For some strange reason, I haven’t made it since then. The other day, I decided to make caramel sauce. I’d also been pouring the leftover coffee into an ice tray and freezing it in the off hand chance I’d have time to make iced coffee. See where I’m going? I didn’t have time to cold brew, so I made coffee in the french press, poured it into a pitcher, and let it rest in an ice bath. Once it was chilled, I took the caramel sauce and drizzled it in some glasses. Totally fancy, I know. Then I added the coffee cubes, my favorite creamer, then the coffee. Lovely. For this batch, I didn’t let the coffee cool enough, so the caramel drizzles disappeared when I poured the coffee in. So, now that I have the power of delicious iced coffee, you’ll find me out in my back yard, chillin’ with a book and sippin’ on love. Pioneer Woman’s Caramel Sauce Like this: Like Loading...

Perfect Iced Coffee & ~ Mary ~ Aaaahhh summer! We are back in its suffocating grip, when the only thing that brings comfort is something cold. Here’s a recipe for iced coffee that’s PERFECT in every way. Brew a FULL pot of coffee. Fill a couple of ice cube trays with coffee. Leave the rest of the pot of coffee on counter to cool then store in fridge. When you’re ready, fill a glass with your coffee ice cubes. Pour 2/3 rds full with coffee and the rest with milk of your choice. Pour in your milk or cream of choice. Put in sweetner of choice – it usually takes double the amount you use, only because you’re probably using a larger glass than your normal coffee mug. Give it a good stir. If you’re feeling sassy put in a straw and ENJOY! I will usually make another pot of coffee in the morning, because it’s what I always do in the morning, that way I’m ready to go the next day. one year ago: Papaya Mango Salsa Salad, Greek Salad 3 Ways, Watermelon Salsa Salad Like this: Like Loading...
