SWEET & SPICY

As requested by my friend Lauren from Maybeads, one of my favorite lampwork critter shops, here is my recipe for sweet and spicy Cinnamon Logs or Sweet Potato Candy...



1/2 cup butter, softened


1 tsp vanilla extract


3 1/2 cups powered sugar


1/4 cup cinnamon


Directions: Cream the butter together with the vanilla extract until smooth. On low speed, gradually add the powdered sugar. Once all of the sugar is added, it should look crumbly and lumpy. At this point, you should be able to form the dough into a nice BIG ball. Pinch off small portions of dough and roll into litle balls, then roll the balls into a log shape. If you keep the ends blunt they are called Cinnamon Logs, if you keep the ends pointy, you can call them Sweet Potato Candy. It's all about the shape.


Let the candies sit a room temperature to harden, about an hour or so. Once they are hardned roll them in the cinnamon. That's it.


The taste of the spicy cinnamon melting into the buttery sugary log becomes a smooth sweet treat with a hint of sharp spicy cinamon in the background...DELICIOUS!...


Enjoy!

LIFE ... COFFEE...

Life is like Coffee Movie: A MUST SEE VIDEO...CLICK THE LINK...

"Do you know people that just seem to be happier in general?
Do you say to yourself, "I want to be more like them"?
Often, the happiest people in the world don’t have the best of everything...
they just make the best of everything!"

New Items Entering...

Brainstorm...
As some of you know I am not torching for now...Long story, won't go there now...My hands and brain have been busy creating lots of different items that I absolutely LOVE, but not many with my lampwork stash...After lots of chatting back and forth with a dear friend I've come to know who lives across the ocean, there was suddenly a "LIGHT BULB MOMENT"...

I enjoy the needle and hook craft and have been working on lots of fun quick projects...Why not create my own beautiful stitch markers and bring them to my Etsy shop for all to enjoy...My hands are busy using my unique one of a kind lampwork...Ahhhhh...Feels good...

Happiness...

"Tell everyone you know: "My happiness depends on me, so you're off the hook." And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they're doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for th e way you feel—and then, you'll love them all. Because the only reason you don't love them, is because you're using them as your excuse to not feel good."
