I is for: Ice Cream with Chocolate, Cayenne, Chile & Cinnamon {Mexican Hot Chocolate Ice Cream}

I’ve about had it with the snow and the cold.

Everywhere you go in Connecticut, there are mountains of the white stuff piled wherever it will fit. But the worst is the feeling you get when you walk outside. Like someone is punching you in the face with a big chunk of dry ice.

So you may be wondering why, in the dead of winter, I’m making ice cream.

I decided to pull a Jedi mind trick on this stupid winter.

Some real, ninja, voo-doo psychological warfare.

I’m tricking winter into going away.

Because you *think* this is just regular chocolate ice cream. Until you take that first bite and get the spicy kick of the cayenne and chile powder that immediately warms your belly.

Take that, winter.

H is for: Hawaii {travel}

My dad is the hardest working person I know.

He’s a wheat farmer in Montana, and to say it’s a demanding job would be an understatement. But he’s good at it. And most importantly, he loves it.

However, if anyone deserves a vacation once a year, it’s him.

So when he and my step mom started going to Hawaii about 5 years ago, I was so thrilled for them. And when they decided to have the entire fam go for a 2015 reunion, I was even happier!

They were so generous to rent a four bedroom home in Puamana (just south of Lahaina) on the island of Maui for me, my sister, brother in law, nephew and step sister to enjoy for a week.

H is for: Heart Box Jelly Shots & Sangria Jelly Shots {for Valentine's Day}

Aloha party people!

Quick post on my last full day in Hawaii (not to worry... MUCH more on that coming in a future blog post). But as it generally does when you are on island time, time flies and it totally slipped my mind that Valentine's Day is in TWO days.

I will be spending mine with a few girlfriends attending 50 Shades of Grey (sorry, we had to). Whether you are celebrating the day with someone special or just hanging with friends, these jelly shots are sure to make your day a little sweeter (and boozier).

Both are wine-based, so they are a little less strong than your normal jelly shots, but just as delicious. To get the heart shaped shots, click here and for the sangria shots, click here. Happy V-Day!
