Marie Antoinette Blue



or maybe Versailles blue - not so much Wedgwood blue. Ice blue?

Whatever the colour is it reminds me of Marie Antoinette so let's do a search of Marie Antoinette blue shall we.




Anyway, I'm giving away my chairs that I bought back in 2012.  I've decided to ditch the deck dining table and chairs and go for something more along the lines of this beauty from 1976:

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups - Vegan Recipe


Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
One, two, three, four ingredients simple enough for me to make!


What you need:
  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips (or regular)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp nut butter - we used almond butter
  • 2 tsp good maple or agave syrup


+ one shallow cupcake tin or a shallow candy mold
* recipe made a single tray of 24 small bite size cups

What you do:
  • grease molds with coconut oil
  • melt chocolate and coconut oil together until smooth and liquid - stir briskly
  • melt almond butter and maple syrup together - stir until smooth
  • drop 2 tsp of the melted chocolate into each of the molds
  • place tray in freezer for 5 minutes - remove when chocolate is hard
  • add 1 tsp of nut butter mix on top of hardened chocolate - smooth out to cover all the chocolate
  • cover the nut butter filling with melted chocolate
  • place in freezer until hardened - about 20 minutes
  • save the recipe on Pinterest


Store in the freezer until you're ready to eat them for breakfast.

How to Tell if A Pineapple is Ripe

stacy reynaud
Pineapples don't ripen after they're picked. If your pineapple isn't ripe turn it upside down so the sugar flows to the top to help sweeten it.

If a pineapple is ripe its leaves will pull out easily.
