Peanut Butter Cups

I found this amazing recipe for Peanut Butter Cups at the Heavenly Homemakers blog (which I love). It looked so yummy that I decided to make it for us:

It was better than yummy! I made a few modifications to it:
-I am not using honey right now, so I added Truvia (but any other sweetener I am sure would work fine)

-I used unsweetened baking chocolate, then added Truvia and coconut oil, to both the chocolate and the peanut butter mixture. I think the coconut oil made it smoother and we were very pleased with the results. I just added oil by the spoonful until I liked the consistency. Here are some pictures of the process:

Give these a try, they are delicious! Thanks, Laura for the recipe!

Making it on… Friday?!

We had a bout of the flu at our house this week and that, of course, switched my gears from crafting to cleaning and trying to figure out a good way to strengthen our immune system for the rest of the season.

This is, I’m embarrassed to say, my first pot of soup ever. I have read that bone broth is actually very nutritious, so I made some too, to keep, using a recipe similar to this one.

Here, Keeper of the Home has some good tips on boosting your immune system during cold season. I will pay more attention next year!

I did manage to get some sewing done. I was privileged to test an awesome pattern, and I’ll tell you more about it in a future post.

What have you been making? Hope you all stay healthy!
