Elephants Get Fat Eating Peanuts

I wouldn't think so...

Elephants Get Fat Eating Peanuts

Humm…do they? I’m not sure elephants are even fat, I just think they are big animals and as it turns out peanuts are not even their preferred source of nutrition. But that’s not the point here, I heard the statement at a social media seminar and it hit home for me. Here’s the bottom line: L i ttle things can make a big difference over time ! I hate counting calories! And I don’t advocate counting calories as a viable means of health and happiness either. That said, I was unfortunately (or fortunately?) born a human calorie calculator. I can look at just about anything and hit the calorie total within 10% almost every time. So let me do the math for you today and give you just a little insight here… ...Read More

My DIY Gallery Wall

Do you have a #DIY gallery wall?

My DIY Gallery Wall

Do you remember my gorgeous all-white DIY gallery wall that I did back in November? I'm sure you do because it's been one of my most popular posts to date and has even made it to onto DwellingGawker too! It's so cool to see my gallery wall featured because it took a ton of work to put it all together! Adhering all the Command strips, figuring out the placement, and then finally hanging them up on the wall! Since November I've added a few new frames and prints to my wall. I even swapped out a print too, which was super easy to do since I used Command photo hanging strips. One strip stays on the wall while the other velcro side comes off so you can take down your frame! Before I show you what it looks like now, let's see what...Read More

Grapefruit Lemonade Non-Alcoholic Spritzer

A virgin drink that looks delightful!

Grapefruit Lemonade Non-Alcoholic Spritzer

With most of our Kansas days reaching a sweltering 100+ degrees, cold beverages are a must. At the beginning of the summer, I was on a Starbucks Passion Fruit lemonade kick and since then, I've moved on to grapefruit juice. It's the perfect combination of sweet and sour and the color is just gorgeous. Not to mention the actual fruit is yummy to eat too when you top it with sugar. This spritzer is the perfect combination of tangy and sweet. The Lorina sparkling lemonade compliments the citrus of the grapefruit perfectly. Add some rimming sugar and an umbrella straw and this gorgeous pink-hued drink is ready to be enjoyed in the hot weather.       Grapefruit Lemonade Spritzer yields one...Read More

S’Mores Martini with DIY Chocolate Marshmallow...

Looks interesting. Not sure if I'd like it, but you might :)

S’Mores Martini with DIY Chocolate Marshmallow...

Infused vodka has reached all-time popularity in recent years. Today, infused vodka is everywhere and the flavor combinations are more interesting than ever. Infusing your own vodka is relatively easy to do. You can change the flavor of vodka by incorporating new flavors to a basic vodka base and give the vodka time to absorb the introduced flavor. You can infuse your vodka with fruit, like pineapple, or add a spicier flavor by infusing vodka with jalapeno or garlic (which would be perfect for bloody marys). On a random Sunday I decided to whip up my own batch of Chocolate Marshmallow Infused Vodka. It was a cold winter day and I was craving S’Mores.

Bread pudding is exactly what we're craving to warm our chilled bones and add a touch of sweetness to our lives. Women have been on to the merits of bread pudding since the 11th century when they used stale bread scraps to make the earliest versions of this gooey treat. Watch Chef Cheryl Dent in the KD101 test kitchen whip up a modern version with vanilla butter sauce, raisins and pecans that will get you through these cold winter months. Waste not, want not!

Looks petty good...

Lushworthy Creations: “Green Tea-ni,” Made...

As much as I love drinking green tea, I’ve never been one to indulge in the extra stuff (i.e. green tea frappucinos, green tea cookies, green tea facials, etc.) Since I tend to play it safe with my tea of choice, I figured it’d be fun to mix things up a bit by creating a cocktail using green tea. I tend to drink my green tea straight, but on occasion I will add honey and/or lemon. So, I knew I wanted those two ingredients in my green tea cocktail. The honey element in my “Green Tea-ni” comes courtesy of Smirnoff Honey Vodka and I stuck with good ol’ fresh lemon juice for this latest Lushworthy Creation.To sweeten things up just a tad bit, I added homemade simple syrup.

Just as February is both the shortest and the longest month of the year, Valentine’s Day can be both the coldest and the hottest holiday. It’s also one of the sweetest.
