Honey Comb Jar

My love..

Honey Comb Jar

Honey Comb Jar

for honey is no secret, but now I wonder if this honey comb jar could serve a purpose in my home. Would it create more of a mess, or could it solve all of those drippy jar issues? Either way, it’s actually on sale for $10 at One Kings Lane, along with lot of other great kitchen gadgets from Core Bamboo. Kind of makes it hard to resist.

Ricotta, Fig & Honey Crisps

Ricotta, Fig & Honey Crisps

appetizer? Saw this Ricotta, Fig & Honey Crisp recipe at Family Cookbook Project that sounds delicious AND easy! With only four ingredients you can whip this up in a flash, and impress your guests. Spread 1 tsp of fresh ricotta cheese on each of the 16 whole grain crackers or slices of bread. Top with a 1/2 of a fresh fig. Sprinkle each with a pinch of sea salt and drizzle with a 1/2 tsp of honey. No cooking and barely a mess to clean up, a simple one to add to the menu.

Hot Toddy

Had my..

Hot Toddy

Hot Toddy

first cold of the season last week. Although it was an after thought this time around, next time I get bit with the bug I’m going to make myself a nice Hot Toddy. It’s been rumored as a great remedy for soothing a sore throat, and relieving the symptoms of a cold (obviously only for those who are legal to enjoy a cocktail). Although it’s prepared all different ways, the hot toddy is very easy to make. For some other variations, check out recipes from Alton Brown, Amanda Hesser and Cooking Light.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 ounces Whiskey
1 ounce Honey
1/3 ounce Lemon Juice
3 ounces Hot Water
1 cinnamon stick (optional)

Directions:

Stir lemon juice and honey into hot water, allow to cool slightly. Add whiskey. Enjoy.

Infused Honey

I’ve mentioned before..

Vanilla Lavender Infused Honey

Vanilla Lavender Infused Honey

that I can’t live without honey, so I’m always on the hunt for new varieties. I usually find unique assortments at local farmers markets, so it caught me by surprise to see some on Etsy. This organic infused honey, made in small batches by Cupboard Cook, comes in two flavors vanilla lavender and elderberry. Honey is a great natural sweetener, and since it’s supposed to have wonderful health benefits I use it in a lot of food I make for Leni. This infused honey added into some yogurt, mixed with wheat germ and sprinkled with cinnamon would be delicious!

good, wholesome ingredients. Caveman Bakery, a New York based business is all about using ingredients that our ancestors had access to,  not food that’s been processed or stuff that we can’t pronounce, just real food.  The result is Caveman Cookies, a healthier alternative to a lot of the options out there, that are available in three flavors: Original, Tropical or Alpine. They are made from 100% natural ingredients like honey, almond meal walnuts, raisins, ginger, and macadamia nuts.  Each cookie has less than 75 calories and they’re gluten-free. Did we just come  across a healthy dessert folks?
