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.

Beet Beauty to the rescue~

beet-salad-1Some celebrities use strawberries on their teeth to make them whiter. Allure my fave beauty magazine recommends you try a bag of frozen peas on your eyes for puffiness. Women in Italy love olive oil for hair and skin.

I had to take it a bit further …when I forgot my tinted lipstain yesterday.

I had accidentally left my lipstick at my office on my desk in my cosmetic case.I own a cosmetic candy shoppe and I was lipstickless. I HATE not to have any color on my lips. I mean it drives me crazy!
Worse yet people stop me some days as they recognize me from my beauty & lifestyle segment on TV.

So,I took the beet from my salad and slipped it into a napkin and went into the powder room. I placed the fresh aubergine beet on my lips as if I were applying a lipstick.Then I applied a dash of the new mini pop in your purse Vaseline over the beet stain on my lips.
My lips were kissed with a soft ruby tint and I looked marvelous!

It’s fun to experiment…share with me what recipes you have come up with.
I love hearing from you.
