Rock Candy. 2 cups water • 1 cup white corn syrup • 3 1/2 cups sugar • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar Then I added: • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract • 3 drops of blue gel food coloring I boiled the mixture and then continued stirring it on the heat until it reached 300 degrees F (used a candy thermometer to measure the temp). At that point, I poured it into a tray to cool. It hardened up in about an hour and then I smashed it to pieces.
Dreamy Nighttime Drink: 1 cup (almond) milk, 1 tsp honey, 2 drops vanilla extract, 1 pinch ground cinnamon. Heat milk on high until the milk is very hot and begins to foam. Stir in honey and vanilla, then sprinkle with cinnamon before serving. This sounds amazing
This is the BEST baby or toddler food! I puree 3 large sweet potatoes, then add about a cup of frozen spinach, one large zucchini, one banana, 3 eggs, 2 tsp vanilla extract, 3 tsp cinnamon, about a cup of milk to moisten and about 1 cup oats +/-flour. Grill it like pancakes on high temperature. For your baby, break into small bite sizes. Toddlers can eat whole.
