My fortune cookie above reads: “Want LUSCIOUS hydrated lips? Rub some organic honey over them”.

Got left over candy canes?

Never fear there is so much to do with them my dears!

Smash them in their wrapper and rim your hot cocoa mugs with them for a peppermint twist.

Break them in pieces and place them in a bowl filled with good quality vanilla ice cream. What you’ll have is a yummy candy cane ice cream on the cheap.

Rim the broken and crushed candy canes,dip in lemon juice and watch them stick around the rim of a cocktail glass. Pour your favorite cocktail inside.

Bake sugar cookies and place a few peppermint crumbles on top before they fully cook in the oven.Be careful when you do it but enjoy this tasty cookie twist.

Grab your nieces,sisters,mom,grandchildren or BFF and make a DIY a Candy Cane lip gloss!

Recipe:

1/2 small candy cane crushed into mini pieces

1 tiny 1/2 drop of food grade peppermint flavoring.

1 mini or small plastic or glass jar

1 scoop of Vaseline (or Organic coconut oil)

Stir all of these together and place in the container.

Apply with lip brush and or your finger.Your lips will feel and look softer and the minty flavor will taste awesome.

Ooey gooey YUM!

I LOVE  all things beauty and food!

I have a food palette that is very adventurous. I have enjoyed eel, rooster feet and jelly fish to name a few. I love to eat all kinds of ethnic treats from experimenting with exotic spices, to tempting appetizers to main dishes and  desserts. Yesterday, after work I shopped around a Middle Eastern store. The owner  is a very caring  for his customers kinda  guy and is a GREAT salesman. It didn’t take him long to sell my husband and I this exotic nutty sweet delight.

Truly scrumptious…This HONEY jar lined with assorted nuts we’ve adorned  on a spoon,on a piece of  pita bread toasted with a sheer coat of butter,on yogurt,on vanilla ice cream and on each other~ Were NOT done yet.

Just call me an avid foodie looking for beauty in ALL I SEE…this jar shouts NUT ART,Unique, TRY ME! EAT ME!

As I always say…Taste all that life and our world has to offer~ Eat and play beyond your front door!

ExploreShare with me what you find. I look forward to your food or beauty adventures!
