Did you know marshmallows are super easy to make from scratch? I probably wouldn’t make plain marshmallows from scratch because I’m all about the easiest way possible, and it’s obviously easiest to buy plain ol’ regular marshmallows. For the record, I also hold this opinion about standard pie crusts. But with marshmallows made from scratch, you can make so many different flavors! And I can’t think of a better flavor for spring than Lemon Lavender Marshmallows! These are light and bright and are the perfect flavor to bring spring!Continue Reading
I’ve never been much of a beer drinker. I just don’t care for the bitterness. I’ve also never been to Ireland, though I’m dying to go! I’ve heard from many friends who have visited that Guinness from the source itself tastes so much better than the Guinness they serve in the U.S. Because Guinness is particularly bitter, an acquired taste, it’s apparently also common for college kids and tourists to add black currant juice to the beer to make it more palatable.Continue Reading
I put out a poll in my Instagram story (if you’re not following me at @flourdeliz, what are you waiting for?!) to see if y’all preferred peanut butter or Nutella in a head to head competition! It’s a hard choice because I’m such a huge fan of both. But in the end, in no surprise to me, Nutella won. I mean, given the choice, I’d pick it too! Nutella is basically the nut butter with the chocolate already mixed in. Peanut butter, while delicious on its own, is significantly improved when combined with chocolate. This is why peanut butter cups are so popular – that peanut butter chocolate combo is divine. So if we collectively decided that Nutella wins out over peanut butter, why wouldn’t we want Nutella cups?!Continue Reading
I have the hardest time deciding what the best chocolate flavor pairing is! I love coconut and chocolate, and I love fruit and chocolate, and I love caramel and chocolate, but the peanut butter and chocolate combo is a classic. There was that 80s Reese’s commercial where the guy was walking down the street eating chocolate and the girl was walking down the street eating peanut butter and they bump into each other, and boom! Chocolate peanut butter deliciousness! Such a perfect combination. There are so many awesome ways to combine these flavors, but you can’t go wrong with classic chocolate peanut butter cups.Continue Reading
I know a lot of people hate Valentine’s Day or think it’s a made-up holiday, but it’s one of my absolute favorites. I find myself defending it year after year as one of the best holidays. Aside from the delicious candy, what’s better than an added excuse to tell people how much you love them? Growing up, Valentine’s Day was the holiday where my mom would hide cards and gifts all over the house and all throughout our stuff so we would find cards and candy all day long. It was the best. It’s a tradition I’ve tried to carry on (as best as it can be in our tiny downtown apartment).
