Cookies and Cream White Chocolates for Valentine's Day 0

#Miniboss and I both love white chocolate, so we decided to make cookies and cream filled white chocolates to give away for Valentine's Day. The whole process is pretty simple (yes!), and takes just 15 minutes of active time. The rest of the time (about 30 minutes) is spent letting each layer set in the fridge. The number of chocolates you make will depend on the mold you buy and how many cavities are inside. Our mold makes 12 medium-sized chocolates, so our recipe reflects that number.  SERVINGS: Will vary depending on molds (see above). ACTIVE TIME: 15 minutes SETTING TIME: 30 minutes...

DIY Whipped Body Butter for Dry Winter Skin 0

I started making my own body butter a few winters ago after I got of tired re-applying lotion throughout the day. Sometimes, it was literally two minutes later...yes...sigh.  I mistakenly thought that the thicker (and more expensive!) the lotion better, but those factors actually made no difference at all as far as my skin was concerned.     Finally, I decided to take matters into my own hands (literally) with an easy and effective DIY whipped body butter to the rescue! It's made with just three super-moisturizing natural ingredients, and a little bit goes a really long way. I...
