    Anything but Boring Nielsen-Massey Vanillas #nielsenmassey

    Vanilla is a classic and amazing flavor used in sweets, cooking and baking everyday. Even real estate professionals use the scent of vanilla for their open house.  I recently tried Neilsen Massy Madagascar Bourbon Vanillas and they have made a world of difference in my weekend French Toast!  I can’t wait to use it in all my favorite recipes…. Panna Cotta! Nielsen-Massey are vanilla experts,  crafting vanilla products for over a century.

    70 Calories Ice Cream by @HaloTopCreamery

    Can ice cream that has 7g protein, 70 calories, and 4 g of sugar taste good? I recently got samples of Halo Top Creamery – All Natural Light Ice Cream.  The golden lid is the “Halo Top”. The top-shelf ingredients are all organic, cage free, hormone free and taste just like ice cream. They are in 17 states, Sprout, Whole Foods and comes in 4 flavors. My favorite flavor is Vanilla Bean – It is perfect for smoothies, milkshakes, a la mode with desserts and yummy with cornflakes on top! Chocolate – This one tastes just a bit like chocolate, it is so good with shredded coconut on top Lemon…

    Sweet Treats @bakedbymelissa

    The perfect birthday gift can be hard to find; sometimes there’s not enough time and nothing seems right or good enough for the fabulous birthday king or queen. Today is my sister’s birthday (shout-out to the bday girl!). So, last night (extremely last minute, I know), on my quest to find the ultimate birthday present, I found myself at Union Square, and still empty-handed, when I stumbled upon the answer to all my gift giving misfortunes—cupcakes Baked by Melissa! The perfect bite-sized little cupcakes in assorted flavors, “Baked By Melissa” are a fun and delicious way to celebrate! I mean who can resist mini cupcakes baked and frosted to perfection?…
