Still Playing Catch-up

I thought I would have something ready for today, but I’m still trying to get things back together after having the kitchen cabinets refaced and the holidays over with, so I thought, since most of the Handmade Monday crowd didn’t see what I posted over Christmas anyway, I would give those a little repeat.

The marshmallows were a big hit, so if you missed that, you can find the recipe and directions at Peppermint and Cinnamon Marshmallows.  Very easy, and better than store bought.  Almost everyone who got them said, “I had no idea you could make marshmallows!”

Also, the peppermint trays were fun and easy.  They were all over Pinterest.  You can find my blog on them at Candy Trays.  At least save the idea for next year!

I’m so glad we are getting back to normal.  I should have my kitchen back in order in the next few days, and then can get back to organizing my craft room.  I will take some photos of both and share them, as I think there are some good ideas there also. I’ve really enjoyed finding ideas on Pinterest, if you’re not using that resource, you really should be.  And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, ask, I’d be glad to bend your ear (and give you an invite)!

And after you’ve finished here, head over to Handmade Monday.  Finally, it’s back up and running.  I know I’ve missed everyone! Holidays are wonderful, but it’s always nice to get back into the groove of normal life. 🙂

      I got some as a gift a few year ago (not home made, but handmade from a shop) as a gift. They were peppermint flavor, and it stayed in my head. 🙂

    Those marshmallows look amazing! I LOVE Pinterest but it’s shocking how the time flies when you are look at all the lovelies there! x

    • Susie says:

      LOL yes, you’re so right. I get going in there and it’s hard to stop. However, I’ve found more wonderful things there, stuff I never would have seen. It’s been sort of a breath of fresh air as far as inspiration.

  7. Wendy says:

    Wow, peppermint and cinammon sounds amazing. I agree, holidays are fab but getting back into the groove is good too.

  8. Super delish – off to gather ideas 🙂

    Oh cinnamon my favourite I just love the taste and those marshmallows are to die for and with peppermint wonderful

    • Susie says:

      I was surprised how nice the crunch of the peppermint candy crumbles was on the peppermint ones. I’m going to try some other options too. Now that the kitchen is back together I have a few more ideas. I’ll share them when I do. These are honestly not very difficult, altho they take a little time (mostly setting up time). And everyone I gave them to was very very impressed.

    What a fab picyure – really lifts the spirits and makes my mouth water! I have to admit I haven’t ventured into Pinterest, I am thinking I spend so much time discovering blogs what would happen if I went there as well!!!

      It is a time consumer! But, to be honest I usually spend only a little time at one time on it. You could easily spend a lot, but I generally find a few things and then do something else. And I have discovered many new and wonderful ideas!

    I love marshmallows, but these ones look a lot better than store bought. You also can’t seem to get any flavour varieties in store bought, which makes yours all the better 🙂
