gingerbread treats

Happy Monday Everyone!

We are in South Florida this week with friends and family and today is all about entertaining. We are working away preparing a dinner party and one of our desserts is gingerbread truffles.

Gingerbread cookies are a traditional activity for a lot of people. It’s so much fun to decorate the gingerbread men and houses etc.

For day 4 of 12 days of Christmas I thought I would share some gingerbread treats with all of you!

I hope you all have exciting plans for the weekend- we are on our way to sunny Florida for some family time 🙂

Last night I got a chance to catch up with a girlfriend over a peppermint mocha-one of my favourite holiday drinks!

I also purchased Ghirardelli peppermint bark- another favourite. Do we see the trend here?

products I love: under $10!

Good morning everyone!

I can’t believe how fast the month is going by.. It’s almost that time of year where the malls get crazy busy and everyone is rushing to get their Holiday shopping done. I will be starting mine this weekend!

I’ve done a few posts about products I love and today’s post is products I love: under $10. These are perfect for small gifts or stocking stuffers!

I love all the Bath & Body Works products- especially the seasonal ones. They are good quality and priced well. These mini candles are 3 for $10 and the foaming soap is $5.50 (or 3 for $15).

Lip-Gallery-Worst-02

To me, Nivea is a classic product- this lip balm moisturizers and adds a touch of shimmer.

Essie’s toggle to the top- love this rich red.

I know so many people who don’t like to drink water (but know it’s healthy)- Mio offers a great flavour with just a drop!

s’mores!

We are half way through the week everyone! One step closer to the weekend and I want to share some delicious recipes for you to try with friends and family. We are heading up to a friend’s cottage on Saturday and that means campfires and of course, s”mores! I absolutely love this treat.

But who says s”mores can only be made one way? Use whichever ingredients you have and give these alternatives a try!

I like to make these:

I crumble some pretzels onto a graham cracker, add some mini marshmallows and then drop some melted chocolate. Put them in the freezer for a few minutes to let the chocolate harden. Simple and so tasty!

These bloggers had some great s”more recipe ideas too: 

Living Eventfully’s S”mores Cupcakes

Dinner or Dessert’s S’mores Pizza

Pint Sized Treasures’ Sweet & Salty S’mores

YUM!

give these a try, enjoy, and let me know what you think.

wishing you all a wonderful day!
