Midori Spring Matcha Shortbread Cookie Recipe Review #midorispring


In the dead of summer, I hate turning the stove on during the day. Even with AC it heats up the kitchen to unbearable degrees. But it’s been mild temperatured lately with little humidity, so I told my grandson we could make cookies. Having received a can of matcha from Midori Springs, I knew I wanted to do some cookies with it I was just waiting for the right day. So off to the interwebz I went to find a recipe:

Matcha Tea Leaf Shortbreads

I settled on this lovely recipe, mainly because I love shortbread but partly because of the photo. Don’t those cookies look beautiful?? Here’s my photo:

Not quite as awesome, but not too shabby! And the cookies? Amazing! The Midori Springs Organic Ceremonial Emerald Matcha is not only the perfect touch for the cookies, but tastes great too. Don’t believe me? Check out their amazon page and their list of awesome qualities (including Certified Organic, GMO free, no pesticides, and rich in antioxidents just to name a few).

US Art Supply 12ml Acrylic Tube Artist Paint Set Review

 

paintingThis set of Acrylics is an excellent set for any artist to have on hand. I don’t paint as much as I used to in college, but getting this set has given me a newfound love for it. Getting in the spirit of fall approaching, I painted a Still Life of gourds and squash. The color selection, as you can see, is awesome and the paint is nice and smooth to work with.

paintCheck them out on Amazon. For the quality of the product and the price, you will not be disappointed!

Something New for Our Next Murder Mystery! Ice Spheres!


Since our last Murder Mystery, I’ve been looking for fun and unique things that would add some extra flair to the party. So when I saw these awesome ice molds, I knew I had to try them!

Pratisphere Ice Sphere Molds

What I like about them is that they last for hours. Literally, I tested one in my water one day and one ball lasted about 4 hours. So needless to say, each person at the party only needs one sphere. Or better yet, freeze something like juice or lemonade and place them in a punch bowl with punch to let the guests admire while not watering down their drink.

These balls of ice are about 2.5″ in diameter and take up about the same amount of room in your fridge as about 2 ice cube trays. Once you pop them out of their container, which is easy to do with a little bit of warm water, you can easily store them in your freezer for company. Or the occasional night cap 😉

Why, Yes. I do drink my amaretto out of a Disney glass.

I love these little ice spheres and will have them on hand a long time to come!
