Starbucks Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino

So I didn’t get the chance to try out the Unicorn Lemonade from Starbucks a couple weeks ago…boo. But when I heard about the Midnight Mint Mocha, I knew I wasn’t going to miss this one!! Mint + chocolate is a magical combination, and this frapp hit it out of the park. I will definitely get another one next week during their 1/2 price frapps happy hour. Really hope they add it to their permanent menu, since to me, this is WAY better then the Java Chip Frapp. If you love mint and chocolates, then be sure to give this one a try, before it disappears – like the elusive unicorn…

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂

3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Beef Teriyaki with Pineapple

Made this Crock Pot recipe, for dinner this past week. I know the title says 3-ingredient, but I felt it needed more to it, then just beef, pineapple and sauce. So to suit our tastes, I added a mixture of frozen mixed vegetables and broccoli to it. It was your basic dump and set recipes, which was great!! I had it cook on high for about 4hrs, then added the frozen vegetables and let it cook for another 30-45mins. The stew beef I used started to fall apart, which was fine by us, especially our son. The flavour was good, though I wonder if a bit more sauce would have worked too. Will definitely try it again though, with some adjustments to see how it turns out next time.

Hope Everyone Had A Happy Easter Weekend!!

How cute are these Easter treats?? I didn’t get to make the treat I wanted, but will get to it soon enough 🙂

Our son spent the afternoon ‘hunting’ for eggs at our home ❤

And as he was having fun, we had a pork tenderloin cooking in the CrockPot. The recipe was simple, which was a must, and it was all placed into the pot in minutes. I cooked it for 6hrs, but next time, I’ll probably check the temp around 4hrs. The only things I did differently, is use fresh sliced onion, placed underneath the tenderloin and used real garlic. I’m glad I did too. The meat itself fell apart, and was flavourful with the onions and garlic. We had herb and garlic (thanks to Boursin!!) mashed potatoes and honey balsamic roasted brussels sprouts along with it – yummy!!

Will definitely make this recipe again…

Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry with Chickpeas

Found this recipe while Googling what to make for dinner, a couple of weeks ago. We wanted our son to try a curry, and after reading through this recipe, decided it would be perfect. Any recipe I find, using my beloved Crock Pot, is worth looking over!! Was very simple to put together, toss into the slow cooker and let it do it’s magic. By the time it was ready, the house smelled amazing. I then served it over rice with a dollop of yogurt on top. It was flavourful and filling. Even our son loved it, and it was a great source of protein for him, from the chickpeas. Kid-approved means it’ll definitely be made again. Give it a try yourself and see what I mean, with the recipe below…

Bark Thins Dark Chocolate Coconut with Almonds Snacking Chocolate

The name is a mouthful isn’t it?? But a flavourful one at that!! My hubby and I really enjoyed these. We love almost anything covered in dark chocolate though…especially coconut and almond!! They’re a great light snack when you’re craving chocolate but don’t want a lot. We’ll be enjoying these again sometime for sure. Grab a bag yourselves and see for yourselves…

Bon Appetit Everyone!! 🙂 

Starbucks Cascara Latte

When the Cascara Latte first came out, I was intrigued by the description…’subtle notes of dark brown sugar and luscious maple’. So we gave it a try. It wasn’t bad and they weren’t kidding when they used the descriptor ‘subtle’. Which was fine, because I don’t like super sugary lattes more then a couple times a year. The syrup they use is made from the dried fruit of the cherry, whose seeds become the coffee beans we know and love. I may try it again sometime, but I wouldn’t say it’ll be my go-to latte. The flat white still holds that spot for now!!

Cheers Everyone 🙂
