Coffee Crafts: A Real Thing

As I was perusing online, I stumbled upon a DIY site with various cool crafts. One of the crafts I saw was this via iCreative Ideas:

A coffee bean magnet! Who would’ve thunk it? Apparently, some coffee lover did.

In any case, I began searching for more coffee crafts because I’ve heard of coffee doing amazing things. Besides brewing and drinking a good cup, coffee grounds can be effective in Continue reading

Foodie Friday: Graham Cracker Toffee Bars

Last night just about an hour before the NBA Finals, I craved for a sweet snack. Something quick and easy. And with available ingredients. I only had graham crackers, chocolate chips and pecans, among other staple ingredients (sugar, brown sugar, flour, etc). S’mores would have been perfect if I had marshmallows! To my desperation, I went to Pinterest and found this awesome dessert Continue reading

Foodie Friday: Vegan Black Bean Burgers

As you can see, I’m still on a burger theme this Foodie Friday. Maybe it’s because grilling season is here and I’ve been to a few barbecues already? Maybe because I’m anxious for a new burger to try?

In any case, I rediscovered a yummy vegan black bean burger recipe from my friend Brown Veggie Mom (also known as Cherri). Remember Cherri from this post about her blog? Yup, same one. 🙂 Continue reading

Foodie Friday: Fish Tacos

A few years ago, I would visit the rooftop taco truck at Whole Foods for a set of good fish tacos. The taco truck was the closest to get them and I never really visited Chipotle or Qdoba often. Wait: Are you with me or are you still stuck on the fact there was a truck on a roof? Yes indeed, a real food truck on the roof (with no working auto parts though – no worries). I assume it got there by crane? As far as I know, it is still on the roof at the Plymouth Meeting Whole Foods.  Continue reading

Foodie Friday: Cranberry Cherry Popsicles

With the weather changing for the better (warmth and sun) we are getting closer to having cool summer treats! I am looking forward to making Popsicles made with real fruit instead buying ones from a package. I found this lovely recipe by Ginny from Vegan In The Freezer:

These Cranberry Cherry Popsicles are made with only three ingredients! Grab an ice mold and a bag of popsicle sticks from your local craft store or dollar store and make these for the weekend. 😉 Here’s the recipe via Vegan In The Freezer!

Foodie Friday: Dessert Shot Glasses

I promise you, I’m really not much of a drinker.

I enjoy a few drinks here and there but not crazy with it. More of a “light social drinker” if you want to call it that. But these two recipes I found have little to do with alcohol except that they are shaped like shot glasses. Now answer this: how many shot glasses have you had that are edible?

These dessert “shot glasses” are bound to be a conversation starter at your next party. Cheri from The Watering Mouth makes these from marshmallows and chocolate liqueur (or you can use chocolate milk for non-drinkers/kiddos):

Yum, I love how easy it is to make. Just two ingredients!

The next is a Milk and Chocolate Chip Cookie “Shot” – a DIY version by Brandi, inspired by Chef Dominique Ansel:

Such a great idea for milk and cookie lovers! I would love to see variations of this cookie shot: maybe Chocolate-Chocolate Chip or Sugar cookie? Surely it would be fun to make!

Foodie Friday: Fruit and Wine Sorbet

Last week was fruit for the morning. How about some fruit for the evening? 😉

Wine is on my mind today. Not because I want any at the moment (still a little early for me), but because I’m attending a “wine and cheese party” over a friend’s house tomorrow. I don’t know what kind of wines and cheeses will be served, but I know it will be a fun time! I want to bring something and I searched for ideas on Pinterest and boom, this loveliness came in view: Continue reading
