After the TEDxUniversityofNevada event, I was inspired to make some changes with the kids. One such change was to not be a dreamkiller anymore.
Hayley has always wanted to work with donuts. Pretty much any job that deals with donuts she wants to do. In fact she thinks life isn’t fair because I don’t let her eat enough donuts. There is even a video about her love for donuts.
So, in order to support her dreams of working with donuts I have incorporated baking lessons into our homeschooling.
The first treats we baked were Orange Vanilla Scones.
A week later we made Carrot Cupcakes with Orange Cream Cheese Icing.
As you can see the children didn’t like the scones or the cupcakes. At all. (Can you sense my sarcasm?)
But the best treats I’ve had all week? These easy vodka cocktails feature Tahoe Blue Vodka which is a local company for me and part of the proceeds help preserve the beauty of Lake Tahoe. We love visiting Lake Tahoe and want the water to stay clear and beautiful.
You can read more about Tahoe Blue Vodka in the spirit review I wrote.
That’s been our week of treats. I’m sure there will be plenty more to come. The kid already has some more recipes bookmarked she wants to try and of course I have a lot more cocktail recipes to create. Hope your week has been sweet too!
AND…On Friday morning (2/8) I have some very exciting news to share so stay tuned!
