Dreamy Holiday Dessert Milk

ImageI will be the first to tell you that I am not a fan of milk. I like it in my coffee; however, when it comes to just drinking it – nope.

I am this way with any kind of milk: skim, almond, coconut and soy. Something about it just is not alluring to me.

However, as the season is changing, I found myself wanting a little dessert drink after dinner. Hot tea is nice, but I wanted something creamy – and this recipe fit the bill.

One of the main ingredients is milk! Thought I would never say this – but this little dreamy drink is one of my favorites now.

It is simple to make and tastes so good for those dreary, cold nights.

You will need: 1 cup milk, 1 tbsp. honey, a pinch of cinnamon, 1 tbsp. pumpkin spice, 2 caps full of vanilla extract.

First heat up the cup of milk in the microwave – you want to get it really hot (it will be frothy on top). Stir in the honey, vanilla and sprinkle on the spices!  Put your dreamy hot drink in a pretty teacup and sip up.


Sweet Deviled Eggs

ImageWant to make the perfect deviled egg for Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter? Or maybe just as a post workout snack? Well, you are in luck; this recipe will make you look like a cooking star!

You will need: ¼ cup Hellmann’s Olive Oil Mayonnaise, ¼ cup yellow traditional mustard, 2 tbsp. pickle relish (sweet or dill), 6 eggs

First – boil a pot of water on the stove. Wait until you see the water bubbling. Then use a spoon (you don’t want them to crack!) to carefully place all 6 eggs in the pot. Let them boil for about 20 minutes – or until they can float on the top of the water!

Once your eggs have cooled, shell them – and cut them half in two. Carefully spoon out the yolks and place all the yellow into a soup bowl. Put eggs white on a plate or a cool egg platter.

In the soup bowl with the egg yolks, add your mayo, mustard and pickle relish (pick sweet or dill depending on if you like them with more of a sugar taste or pickle!) Use a fork and mash all the ingredients together!

Take a spoon and fill each egg white pocket with the yolk mixture. Sprinkle with paprika or add a sprig of parsley for decoration! You are done – you just made fabulous deviled eggs.

Enjoy – this is a gluten-free meal. What a bonus.
