Who doesn’t go crazy over the idea of making your own ice cream at home without having to buy an ice-cream machine? I remember being little and begging my mom to buy me an ice cream machine, but that never happened. I guess I just forgot about the whole Idea of making my own Ice cream. Everything changed when I saw a youtube video (man! youtube has really changed my life lol) anyways, the genius women behind this is Gemma from “Bigger Bolder Baking” check her channel for some awesomeness. She has a video on how to make Ice cream without a machine, at first I thought that it wouldn’t taste as good as real Ice cream, and it would probably just be “blah” and not exciting. I’m so thankful that I gave it a try, this is really some amazing secret. You will only need two ingredients for your base and the you decide what flavors or toppings you want to add. You can definitely go crazy with this because you have the freedom to really make it your own. Here I will share how I made mine. Mine is Nutella, but like I say you can add anything that your heart desire.
1/2 cup of Nutella
On a electric mixer or hand mixer add two cup of heavy milk and whisk it approximately 4 minutes, until you have stiff peaks. Then add one cup of condensed milk and just incorporate it to the mixture. Now its time to melt the Nutella. Microwave it for 60 seconds, just enough so it can be spread easy. Take a spoon and swirl the Nutella in your mixture, save a few tablespoons for the top decoration. Pour your Ice cream in your container and now swirl on top the remaining Nutella. Froze it for 6 hours or over night.
Let me know in the comments if you give it a try and what do you think of this recipe, or if you have any other tricks on making Ice cream at home I would love you forever if you share it. Hugs
I was just way too excited when I came up with this blog planner. I didn’t design the actual design but the way I bind everything together it’s pretty cool. It works perfectly for me since is just a monthly planner. Like I say in the video I get tire of things pretty fast so this a veery good way to keep refreshing the planner. In the video I explain everything, but I will leave you with the link for the templates so that if you feel inspired you can find them quick.
I know it still cold here in New England and that basically winter is not over, but I encourage you to start thinking about spring. At least to mentally scape this brutal cold weather that we’ve been dealing with lately. For me it works. I’m a day dreamer so anything that can take me away from reality its a good thing.
Let’s talk handbags, I haven’t upgrade mine in a long time. Right now I’m using my 3.1 Phillip Lim for target Crossbody in Gray (you can see it here) I love it, but I’m ready for a change. I want something that says spring, I’m tending to go for the light neutrals as you can see, but I just can’t leave the black behind so I had to incorporated into my selection. Which one is your favorite, or do you have an specific style that you can’t give up? I want something big, since my actual bag is pretty small, now I want something that I can fit a lot in it. Well let me know in the comments below. XOXO
These past weeks have been full of discovery and craziness for me. I know I’m touching the coupons topic two times in a row, but man how to ignore this. I have exactly a month since I started couponing, and I wish I had started earlier. Let me first start by saying that if you thinking on trying this uncommon hobby you have to be prepare for a total addiction to it, once you hooked there is not going back. I’m saying this from true experience, believe me when I say that I just can hold myself from going out without my little coupon pouch. Did you heard what I said? Yes you heard right! A month in, and I already have a pouch. I am far from a extreme couponer but I’m learning a lot.
Here are a few of the purchases from the past weeks. These were all insane deals that I was able to pull together. I can’t quite remember all of the prices and deals. I know I should’ve save my receipts, I just can’t find them but I can assure you that all of these were at least 75% off. The first picture with the juices and the soaps was from target, I had a buy one get one free coupon for the juices and at target they were already on discount. So basically this is the secret, you find the coupons for the item and the you go and look for the store in which that Item is already on sale. I will try to post more break down deals so that you can actually see what I mean. Now I’m going to go I wish you a beautiful day night or whatever time is when you reading this. XOXO
Well the picture says it all… doesn’t it???? I’m kind of ashamed to admit how excited I am about this. I know normally you wouldn’t be too thrill of spending all of your money on soaps, detergent and beauty staff, but when you can get it all for free or almost free you just get suck into it. That’s exactly what happened. I always wanted to try to see how this would work out, but never really went all out or even sat down for more that 5 minutes to come out with deals, but that was before. Yesterday I got my sunday news paper and sat down for like 30 minutes trying to come out with the best deal I could get. The are a few website that make this process much easier, my favorite is “Thekrazycouponlady.com”. These girls make this so easy for you, all you have to do is follow their instruction and you will walk out of the store with at least a 75% discount for sure.
My first trip was today I decided to take down the drugstore first so Walgreen and CVS were my goals for today. Since it was my first couponing trip I wanted to keep it short and simple, but of course always something has to happen, cause other wise it would be fun right… Well, I wanted to buy some “Yes to Coconut” products since they were free after rewards, but something happened with my coupons, for some reason the machine wouldn’t read it and I wasn’t able to complete my purchase. I’m not even thinking about giving up, if thats what’s going through your mind right now, I will go back tomorrow and complete my purchase!! Watch me getting those things for free!!!! I will brake down the deal better for you tomorrow, so that if you have the chance you can take advantage of these coupons as well. I hope you are was excited as I am about saving a lot of money for 2015. What about you, is there any one else doing this? Is there any coupon girl reading this? Please let me know, It would be fun to chat about this as well.
