August Preview of Gramma in a Box

I’ve looked at Gramma in a Box before. I loved the idea, especially for a rainy day activity for the kids. When I saw the August preview, that was the seller for me.

Gramma in a Box has a super cute sea life and beach theme. How cute are these cookies?

So what’s the deal with Gramma in a Box? Well it was created by a grandmother that would make up similar boxes to ship to her grandkids so they can do the activity together when they skyped.

Each box contain almost everything you need to create up to 20 treats in each box. Boxes contain cookie or candy treats that are easy to do. “Gramma does all the work so you can have all the fun”

I ordered the August box to try it. It looks fun, easy, and tasty. There are also subscription for 3, 6, or 12 months if you like.

I can’t wait to see what the holiday boxes look like. I plan on doing an unboxing video and a review post after I receive the August box. I’m trying to become active on Tiktok so I might do a video there too.

Cute clams to make and eat!

Fall Recipe Round Up: Desserts

As I visit Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Pinterest I’m bombarded by fall desserts that make me want to increase my workouts and adjust my macros so I can have a little taste of each.

In my opinion, fall has some of the best dessert recipes: pumpkin, caramel apple, pecan, spice, cinnamon, oh man so many combinations. Then there’s the warm desserts that just taste so good on a crisp fall afternoon like apple pies, pumpkin muffins, or a delicious dip. So here’s a list of the fall dessert recipes I will be trying

Recipes on my “To Make” list:

This is no lack of inspiration for fall desserts. I even have a fall themed Pinterest board that has recipes ideas, decor ideas, and costume ideas.

If that’s still not enough even Amazon is getting into the action with idea boards:

Do you have your favorite fall dessert recipes? What are they?

I Accidentally Made Keto Vietnamese Egg Coffee and I Don’t Hate It

As a coffee love I’m almost always up for trying new coffee in new ways. Admittedly, I sometimes just want my regular coffee just to get me going in the morning. But, I saw this video on facebook and it made my mouth water

https://www.facebook.com/thisisinsidertravel/videos/658571971281626/

The one that really stood out to me was the Vietnamese egg coffee. Given the wonders of the internet I knew there had to be some recipes out there. I found one. The recipe is pretty simple and straight forward.

I would have swore I had sweetened condensed milk in my house. I searched and searched. All I found was 4 cans of evaporated milk. I had already cracked the egg and separated the yolk so I decided I was going to make this coffee one way or another. (Just not leaving my house, I was still in my pajamas and let’s face it, I need my coffee to leave my house) So I decided to mix the egg yolk with heavy whipping cream and liquid stevia. The result is my new favorite hot coffee treat.

Keto Vietnamese Egg Coffee

Keto Vietnamese Egg Coffee Recipe

4 oz brewed espresso

1 egg yolk

4 Tblsp heavy whipping cream

10 drop liquid stevia

Beat egg yolk with heavy whipping cream. Slowly add in drop of liquid stevia while beating mixture. Pour whipped mixture into coffee cup and add hot brewed espresso. Enjoy!

**note** I would wait to brew the espresso until your egg yolk mixture is just about done. I brewed my espresso first not realizing how long it would take to get the mixture to a good consistency and it was a little too cold for me by the time I was ready for the espresso.

This recipe has an indulgent creamy flavor that tastes like it came right from a coffee shop. I will definitely be making this again!
