A Classic Mudslide Milkshake Recipe (gluten-free)

Ladies and Gents, dust off your blender and put the kids to bed early! We’re gonna have some adult time (not that kind of adult time, I’m trying to be family friendly here) because we’re making MUDSLIDES as a MILKSHAKE. I hope your cheat day is today because you’re gonna need it. If you ain’t got plans to go shopping you better make some so you can pick up these ingredients and get your drink on (you’re my kinda person if you happen to have all ingredients on hand). This milkshake is delicious, boozy and pumped full of chocolate, what more could you want?

Matcha + Lemonade Frozen Yogurt Recipe (Copycat Pinkberry)

Yup. I jumped on the matcha train, and I’m gonna ride the darn thing until it crashes and burns. I am obsessed, to say the least. This frozen yogurt is a pretty darn close replica of the Pinkberry recipe if I do say so myself. If you have no idea what Pinkberry is and think I’m talking about strawberries, I’ll describe the flavor that is this magical frozen dessert. This frozen yogurt is a not too sweet, tangy perfection kissed with a matcha flavor that pairs beautifully with the lemon. I think the matcha, lemon, and sugar balance extremely well in this recipe and is quickly becoming my favorite dessert flavor. It’s the perfect tart and sweet combo that I never knew could exist. Plus, you can make this recipe without an ice cream maker.

DIY Blackout Candles (6 for $25)

If you came here for a full tutorial on how to make candles, you might want to find a more experienced candle maker. This post is really more of a PSA than a DIY tutorial. After a horrific blackout experience, I decided it was my duty to inform the lovely public how to be more prepared in the event of a power outage (because I was not and I still have nightmares about it).
