Cleveland Food

Hi sisters!
I’m in Cleveland visiting Chris’ parents! Yesterday we went to Chagrin Falls, home of Calvin and Hobbes. We went to Jeni’s Ice Cream. The flavors we tried were “Salty Caramel” and “Bangkok Peanut”. The peanut was amazing – it had cayenne pepper so it had a very spicy, unique taste.

They also had macaron ice cream sandwiches!

Then his parents made the most delish shrimp and grits based on a dish from the House of Blues

Happy Pi Day!

Happy Pi day!!! So today, at the request of Sister 1, I am finally going to post pictures!

REVIEW: King of Pops (Raspberry Lime, Pear Vanilla, Grapefruit Mint)
Now, I LOVE king of pops! Their popsicles are fresh, and don’t taste like the artificial stuff you’re used to. They’re natural, delicious goodness. Now, I tried these on two different occasions, so their quality might differ.  I ate Pear Vanilla and Grapefruit Mint at the Atlanta Food Truck Festival with Sister 2 and the Raspberry Lime at Whole Foods! Sadly, I don’t have a picture of the pear vanilla or grapefruit mint 😦 I can tell you that the grapefruit mint had wonderful mint leaves inside, and the pear vanilla looked VERY natural. Now onto the reviews!

Pear Vanilla-

This one was a tad too sweet for me, but I think that’s because of the ripeness of the pears. Given that I like tart things, this one was not for me. I’m pretty sure Sister 2 enjoyed it more though.

Grapefruit Mint-

At this time, this was my favorite. It was an ice pop, so it tasted like pure grapefruit juice with hints of mint. The grapefruit was slightly bitter, but still a refreshing and delicious treat nonetheless.

Raspberry Lime-

Oh, this was DELICIOUS! You could taste the delicate flavor of fresh squeezed limes, it wasn’t hidden, it was pronounced. I LOVED this flavor, and will definitely get it again! Or maybe their key lime pie or banana cream pie! YUM!

I promise I will post the picture when my computer decides to start working again! Sadly, the picture won’t work on this computer :(.

Yogurt Cake

ImageI made this yogurt cake for my birthday this past Saturday. Try the recipe here. Very easy to make and delicious. I substituted the Olive Oil with Vegetable Oil because I ran out, and added a little bit of rosewater out of personal preference. Wish you could be here to enjoy it with me sisters.

Love,

Sister 1


MORNING SMOOTHIES

HI SISTERS! After much advice from Dad, I started to make smoothies in the morning. The first one was terrible! But after some practice, I’ve started to make a lot of progress! This morning, I tried out this:

CARROT GINGER SMOOTHIE

  • 1/2 a carrot, chopped into small pieces (Large carrot – might be 1 or 2 whole carrots, or handful of baby carrots)
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, chopped into small pieces (can be more if you like the flavor)
  • 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of green tea (cold) – this can be substituted with just water or juice, etc.
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp honey (optional)

Blend together and enjoy!
