Cactus Pear & Pomegranate With Enjoy Life Foods Protein Bites Nice-Cream Vegan and Gluten-Free – Recipe

Wondering how I naturally obtained this lovely shade of hot pink in my bowl of nice-cream (vegan ice-cream)?? Easy! I owe it all to the cactus pear. The flesh of a cactus pear, when combined with a banana, will give you this gorgeous magenta hue. This is a healthy dessert that will most definitely make your child excited for a yummy treat that is naturally sweet from nature with no added sugars. Other ingredients in this frozen treat are frozen pomegranate, two frozen bananas, and some coconut milk. This is a much healthier alternative to tradtional ice-cream and I always enjoy creating this and serving it at home. Super simple and easy to do too!

First-Timer’s At Apple Annie’s and Dessert At Roger’s Bulk Candy Again

I have been living in this area of Southeast, Michigan all of my life. I have driven past Apple Annie’s in Roseville, MI numerous times, way too many to count. I have always been curious about how their food was. Last night my family and I finally gave it a whirl. We try to be thrifty while dining out and we had a coupon from a local paper. I have always heard that they were famous for their soups and that was plenty enough to get me to try it out because I love having a nice cup of soup to go with my dinner. On their website, they mention that they were voted best soup in Michigan for two years in a row. That was a claim I was willing to find out for myself. We also stopped by Roger’s Bulk Candy & Ice-Cream after dinner. Read more to get the deets!

I always try to make my Sundays all about awesome food. I always make a big deal about Sunday supper. It has to be something special. It needs to be mindblowing. I also like to prepare some sort of brunch for us. Yesterday was a success and I achieved pretty much everything that I wanted to. We had homemade baked donuts in the morning, tender & juicy t-bone steaks for dinner, and an ice-cream sundae large enough to feed an elephant!

The Baking Edition Part One – Friday Faves

I have recently fallen head-over-heels in love with baking. It is something that I am very passionate about. I know the appearance of my baked goods is not yet top notch like a professional’s work. My baking technique is something that I am determined to perfect so someday I can have some drool-worthy looking goodies. I will say this, though, the flavor is usually spot-on and I do nail that! Some will say that is all that matters but I also want my baked goods to look more visually appealing.

This week’s Friday Faves will focus on items that will help you along your way with baking. I will include some essentials and also some other items that look worth splurging on! This will be part one of this list. There are a ton of other baking items out there that I have my eye on so I will do another baking essentials list in the near future.

Our Visit To Roger’s Bulk Candy & Ice-Cream – Because Sometimes A Girl Just Needs To Have Fun

We have all heard the expression, “you will feel like a kid in a candy shop” well yesterday I was the kid in the candy shop! Yesterday I came up with the grand idea to visit Roger’s Bulk Candy and Ice-Cream in Eastpointe, MI. As you may already know I often promote a healthy lifestyle and a healthy diet. I believe in living your life and having fun every once in a while though. I feel that eating should be all about BALANCE. I regularly opt for healthy meals but sometimes I like to just cut loose and enjoy whatever the heck I want

Two Hiccups In The Kitchen In One Day

The first hiccup in the kitchen occurred during lunch. I used Enjoy Life Foods gluten free pancake/waffle mix and put some LivFit cacao powder in the mix to make chocolate waffles. I have been craving breakfast foods like crazy and I had a craving for some waffles.
I forgot to spray the waffle maker to make it nonstick sooooo…
Here are my chocolate [messy] waffles topped with Enlightened Red Velvet ice-cream. I was so lucky that I was able to salvage these waffles because they tasted incredible. It was my first time trying out this gluten-free waffle mix. Enjoy Life is free of many common allergens: wheat, dairy, soy, sulfites, peanuts, tree nuts, casein, egg, and more! That makes this mix vegan and paleo friendly!

Simple Red Raspberry Wine Dessert Sauce – RECIPE

I made this red raspberry wine dessert sauce on a whim last night. It paired so nicely with my my Revele white chocolate raspberry gelato. The recipe to whip up this awesome sauce is so simple and easy. Also there are no added sugars in this sauce. The raw honey will naturally sweeten the sauce.

Ingredients used:

1 pint of raspberries
2 tablespoons of a red wine. For best results use a sweet red or a raspberry dessert wine. I used Sandhill Crane Vineyards Rhapsody in Red
1 tablespoon of raw honey. I used Madhava.
1 teaspoon of lemon juice. I used DeLallo lemon juice
